5 Ways to Get Motivated to Go to the Gym

Sports Bra: Reebok Tank: Marshall's, similar here in white Shorts: Nike Tennis Shoes: Nike 'Roshe One' 

Today I thought I would share with you a little different post than normal. Now I don't know about you but I go through spells with working out. I swear one month I'm like really into it then the next I don't even want to think about going to the gym. So I thought I would write a post about 5 ways you can use to get motivated to go to the gym if you are on the struggle bus like I have been! So here we go:

1. Buy Cute Gear. Yes. I know when I saw these Nike's I was more pumped to workout because I had new shoes. I think all girls would agree ;)

2. Invite a Friend! When I used to live in my hometown we all did a bootcamp together and it made it so much easier to go and harder not to go because I knew my friends would be there lol. They are great motivation. 

3. Try a Fun Class. The gym Justin and I just signed up for not to long ago has a ton of classes I've been wanting to try (one of them being Hip Hop!). I know if I had a scheduled class every week I would definitely go. 

4. Download a New Playlist. I pay like $10 a month for Spotify and it is the best investment ever. They have a new music Friday and I always create a new playlist from that. New music always gets me excited to workout. 

5. Stop Thinking about it and Just Do It. Ok so maybe I stole part of Nike's slogan...but it's true! 

How do you stay motivated to workout or go to the gym?

Lipstick Tee

Tee: Cara Loren Jacket: H&M, similar here (I love it!) Jeans: Express, similar here Boots: Forever 21 Sunglasses: A.J. Morgan 

I have taken some time off social media for a few days. My grandma passed away and it has been really rough. I really appreciate my Style Collective girls and everyone giving me support and love through this time because it is definitely not easy but I know she will be my forever Guardian Angel and I'll never stop missing her. 

Onto my outfit. I love Cara Loren's style and when I saw this Lipstick Tee from PB&J Boutique I knew I had to have it! It is a boyfriend fit tee so make sure you size down if you don't like that. PB&J Boutique is known for their vintage inspired clothing and they are located in California. They are running an end of summer sale right now and if you use the code pbjsummer you will get an additional 50% off all sale items! Thanks for stopping by :)

How I Grew My Instagram Following

In the past month I have gained over 2,000 followers on Instagram. How you ask? I took a fellow blogger babe, Julianna's How to Grow Your Instagram E Course. First of all, let me start by telling you Julianna is a very successful fashion blogger who owns the blog Blush and Camo. She created this E Course so that girls can start working with brands they love, build a brand around their Instagram account and build a community of Girl Bosses with whom they love to interact with! The E Course is a 55 page plus guide that includes topics such as How To Collaborate With Brands and Developing An Instagram Theme. You will also receive 8 videos and 11 worksheets. The worksheets were my favorite. She gives so many great tips! The best news about this is Julianna is relaunching this course this Friday August 19th and it will be open to the public. Be sure to check it out!

P.S- I am still working on decorating my office, bare with me!

Irresistible Me Review

Hair Extensions: Irresistible Me Earrings: BP. Tank: Express (love this!)

I know I shared with you guys a few weeks ago that I started wearing hair extensions and today I wanted to share my review on them! They are from a company called Irresistible Me. Now I don't know about you but I love hair extensions. I never wore them in high school but when I discovered them in college, I was like hallelujah finally some longer, thick hair! I just feel so much prettier when I have long hair. The extensions I'm wearing are from the Silky Touch category and are called Silky Chocolate Brown #2. They weigh 200 grams total and came with 10 pieces total. Want to hear the crazy part? I'm only wearing two of the pieces in these pictures. They are so thick and full, I don't really need to wear more than that. 

These extensions are 100% Remy human hair and are so extremely soft. Plus they hold curls like no other! I will curl these once and be good to go for at least a few days. My real hair loses it's curl after a few hours lol. I have tried out a few other extensions prior to these and these are the best. Plus, they are running a sale right now for 25% off! If you are wanting longer hair or just some added volume, you should really try Irresistible Me
