As someone who has always been active, I like to find different ways to stay fit physically. I run, I do circuit work, I take barre classes, but these can all seem routine at times. I have found that being outside in the fresh air is something my body loves so I have come to enjoy hiking activities. While we do not have a ton of places to hike in Louisiana, we do have good trails/nature walks which are also enjoyable. But while we were in West Texas, we decided to spend time in Big Bend National Park and the views were worth every second of the hike!
It is a new year, which means new goals. While I like to think that I am pretty good about staying active, I love when the new year rolls around because I push that much harder. Being able to set and define my goals is something I look forward to and try to do every few months. Those January goals though just seem to draw me in. This year, I have set new goals in all aspects of my life. From the blog, to travel goals, to financial goals; I truly believe in setting the bar and going for it. Now, while there are many goals to achieve in 2017, first and foremost are goals for myself and my health. I believe that staying active/healthy keeps me sane and helps to relieve accumulated stress. I will admit, I can be an anxious person (one of the things I am working on this year), and tend to let tension build inside me. By keeping my fitness game a high priority, my stress level and tension both release a little. I am not picky when it comes to my workout, but there are definitely a few things I tend to gravitate towards so I am sharing my favorite workouts below!
True story, I am in love with purses. I always have my eye on new styles that emerge each season, and if I am going to invest something, it will definitely be a purse. I can carry them for years and make them last through endless seasons, which is something I appreciate (especially when I splurge!). This year I have enjoyed carrying smaller bags (which is not the norm for me), as you have probably seen with my Chloe bag. As the fall approaches, I knew I wanted a new bag that was in the beige color family to mix up my neutral shades just a bit. Right when I saw this Gucci bag, I fell in love not only because of the color, but the simplicity is perfect!
