USA / Canada Upload! January 31st 2017

Overall a nice upload but nothing for me tonight. The dark olive Scuba is tempting but I have too many hoodies. Midnight blue is also really pretty in the Swiftly but it's not a must have. If any of those end up on WMTM I'll reconsider. Did you get anything from tonight's upload before Frugal February? This is my 5th year doing Frugal February. It's always nice to scale back and not purchase my every whim. Gives me a month to appreciate what I already have. So for me, I'm not purchasing any new athletic clothing. I may have to buy some more work clothes however, but I don't spend a lot on work clothes so it won't be very costly. I prefer to buy my work clothes from Target. =) I do not ban myself from going out to eat with my husband because frankly he just won't go for that at all even if I wanted to. I also will allow myself to purchase books and other items I need like some new socks or underthings. I will be posting some reviews next month from

Store Try On Fit Review Wunder Under Pant Hi-Rise Nulux Flux

Hope everyone had a great weekend! I'm back in Atlanta and tomorrow I start my new job. I'm really excited and also kind of dreading waking up super early again. My hours are 8am - 5pm and I'll probably have to get up around 6:30 or so. I'm really lucky the office is only a 10 minute drive or if I feel like it I can also walk it but that will take me about an hour. Before I left New York, I managed to stop by a store quickly to try on the new Nulux print in Flux. I absolutely loved it! It's really stunning in person and very vibrant. I actually had some more gift card money to use so I didn't pay full price for it. For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches and typically wear a size 4 in bottoms. Wunder Under Pant Hi-Rise Nulux Flux 50g   I'm wearing my normal size 4 and the Nulux fabric feels like butter. I love it. The rise sits right underneath my belly button.  The colors are super vibrant. My thighs do look a little bit thicker in these,

Fit Review Friday! Athleta Try Ons! Salutation Capri, Studio Wrap, Tropical Mesh Chaturanga, Jacquard Chaturanga, Athleta Girl Kickin It Joggers

Happy Friday everyone! It's also Chinese New Year weekend for me so I'll be eating up a lot of food tonight and tomorrow. It's a good thing I'm still keeping up with my workouts while in New York. I have to squeeze in my ab workout before my husband arrives from Atlanta. Then tomorrow I doubt I'll have time to get my HIIT workout in, but we'll see. If that's the only workout I miss I'm okay with that. Since Lululemon has been waning lately I went into Athleta to try on a bunch of items that were catching my eye when I browsed their website. For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches tall and typically wear a size 4 in Lululemon tops and bottoms. For Athleta bottoms I am a size XS or PXS if available. Athleta tops I fit into XXS or PXS. High Rise Tropical Mesh Chaturanga 7/8 Tight Size XS Unfortunately Athleta does not offer petite sizing in their stores. However, trying on the XS size at least gives me a good idea if I really want the item or no

Finally a WMTM update!

Wow, I have not done one of these in a long time. Finally some new items hit this afternoon. I do apologize for the late post, I've been really busy with family and friends. Here are my top picks from the sale. Did you buy anything? I ended up ordering the Speed Shorts in midnight tulle . I finally gave in and bought it with my gift card. So far that's my only Lululemon purchase this month besides the High Times Pant in blooming pixie , which is still available much to my surprise! My guess is people prefer the WUC? Love Racerback Blue Denim (this is a pretty blue for spring) On Track Singlet Heathered Astro Blue Cool Racerback Infinite Black Featherlight Tight Heathered Black Sleet Sprinter Jacket Black $169! (I have a review of it here ) Cardio Squad Tank Heathered Plum and also pretty Heathered Desert Teal Make A Move Short in 6 colors

New York Visit

I've been back in New York for a week already. How quickly time flies! So far, I'm still keeping up with my daily workouts. Although today, I'm supposed to do arms, but I'm still super sore from my leg day workout that I did on Monday.  I'm thinking I'll do my arm workout tomorrow and count LISS as today. For those of you who don't know, I'm following the BBG program which I'll post a review in about three more weeks. I'm staying with my parents and I actually have some workout equipment there. I'm borrowing my sister's 8 lb dumb bells and I have an 18 lb kettlebell that I left behind.  This photo was taken after leg day. Lots of core exercises. (BBG stands for Bikini Body Guide, which a lot of people find offensive so the new name is Sweat With Kayla which is much better.  LISS stands for Low Intensity Steady State cardio.) When I'm back in New York, one of the first things I do is visit my hair stylist. I
