Midweek Motivation @At Home Yoga Videos

Fav @home Yoga Sessions

Hey yall today on the blog I am sharing some of my favorite at home yoga videos! I feel like it is so easy to get caught up in the stresses of the world and I had to take a MAJOR break from social media the past few weeks to RE-CENTER myself and just allow myself to ride the wave! They say life happens in seasons and you can't expect to bloom all year long.  So I personally always trust my intuition regarding rest.
The thing about yoga is that it doesn't have to be expensive and you don't have to go to a studio! You can do yoga in the comfort of your own now with amazing technology called......YouTube!
I am sharing some suggestions that will allow you no matter your level of expertise.
Also I have included a wide range of times so if you only have 15 minutes in your day to squeeze in a yoga session you still have an option for an impactful and quick session!

1. Early Morning Flow

I personally feel like early morning yoga really sets you up for success! A clear mind works wonders!This video above by Adriene is a quick 7-minute yoga meditation to start my day. since it is so short I have no excuses not to do it!
For a 12 Minute EarlyMorningYoga session click here and if you wake up super early this is a good 25 Minute Yoga session click here
And if you are running behind  this is a  good 5-minute option  below:
Lastly if you only have 15 Minutes this Yoga Session will be impactful!

2. Beginner Yoga

This video is only about 20 minutes long but gives you a good overview of beginner moves and tips for the newbies!

This video has over 20 Million views and it's the complete Beginners Video by Adrienne This is an alternate video that's only
16 Minutes long.

3. Quick 10 Minute Yoga Sessions

This option is great if you are in need of a midday wind down! Before a big presentation or if yourself in need of a mid-day wind down! If you have a mini-break at work these may be a good option for you as well! For the Quick 10 Minute Yoga session above click here.
For a session focused on Strength &Balance click here! - 
And a Short 10 Min.Yoga Flow click below!

4. After Work Flow

These yoga flows are for anyone needing a cool down after a long stressful day at work! I have not been doing many after work flows lately but I have included several options below as this may be a good option for others who want to cool down before dinner!
The above is a 33 minute option!
For a 25 Min Yoga Flow click here and for a quick 15 minute option click below!

5. Bed Time Yoga

This is a great option for all of those other insomniacs out there! I personally can have a hard time falling asleep before big events( big presentations, job interviews a flight) and so I have learned I either need to work out intensely or try to relax with meditation and yoga!
This is my current go-to as its a little longer session but is a quality option if you are trying to relax before bed. For a 12 Minute session click here

Lastly if you are in a hurry this is an option that's only seven minutes long! Quick and efficient yall! 

Hey loves I hope you enjoyed todays post! When and if you try any of the routines above  feel free to comment below how it went!

Peace & Love,

Current Favorite Designer Summer Crush-Worthy Shoes

Hot Fyahhh Summa Shoesss...frankly obessessedπŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯

Hey yall today on the blog I am sharing some of my current favorite Summer Shoes that I have been crushing on sooo hard for the summer! They all are considered on the the high end spectrum when looking at high and low fashion but I am tellin you these shoeies are sooo gorg and it is most DEF possible to purchase similar shoes and dupes! But if you are looking for a statement making accessory that will last for several seasons then check out these fyahhhh shoes!!!!

1. Fendi Shearling Slides:

Click here to shop these slides! They are currently at the low price of $790.00!
These slides are sooo chic and yet so casual! But they are Fendi for any brandwhores out there! These shoes would be worth the splurge! If they were mine I would wear them around the house wayyy tooo much and worry that my dog will mis-take them for her toy and then ruin them... out of lust!! But for anyone looking for a quick upgrade on slides these Fendi's will def do! I could see Kylie wearing these! ( Remember her Fendi Stroller apparel look this would go so well with that outfit!)

@KylieInstagram- I do not own rights to this image.

2. Jimmy Choo Crystal Sneaks

Click here to shop these crystal sneaks!!  They are so clean and fresh! I could imagine Kim K wearing these shoes with a diamond encrusted blazer and white biker shorts! Okay they are sooooo fyahhh and they are Jimmy Chooo's!!! Okay!!
FYI: They are priced at $1995

3. Black Croc Classic YSL Pump

Click here to shop these Ysl Classic Pumps
These pumps are soooo clasys with the YSL initial shaped in the heel. They will for sure be aroud for years to come. They could make any cocktail dress pop and I could even see these translate oh so well in a business causual outfit! It is understated enough but still a little pop of flashhiness!!!
They are priced at $1095

4. Saint Laurent

Click here to shop these beauties!  Everyone needs a pair of blocky heels that can pair well with a blue jeans and a flowy blouse, also what I thought of when I saw these shoes was them paired with a GORGEOUS Flowy Spring Dress!!! These shoes would go well with the dress below but in like a neutral color! Think whites and creams!

Priced at $695

5. Classic Chloe Sandal

These shoes are like the perfect summer sandal that will be a classic for many seasons to come! The big factor I always say to keep in mind when you are going to splurge on shoes or accessories is assess the versatiliity and trendiness of the piece to allow you to make the purchase worth it! Of the whole list I believe these shoes would be the best splurgeworthy purchase as they are (1. Neutral Color) And TIMELESS!!

Click here to shop the Chloe Sandals they are priced at $690.
This style also comes in white

Bonus: Gucci Spiked Sneaks

These sneakers were soooo dope! I had to include them! And the price was pretty high too sitting at the ohhh soo not affordable price of $1590
Click here to shop these spiked sneakers!

ALSO Gucci has another pair of sneakers that instead of being spiked the strap is bejeweled in large crystals. They look sooo ostentacious its like you have to rock them! I would rock it in a skin tight dress and then the sneakers! Like a classic dress think maroon or cream and then let the shoes do all of the talking Like the photo above! Okay!!

Click here to shop the Gucci Bejeweled Strap Thank yall sooo much for reading about all of the shoes that I am crushing on sooooooo HARD! But havecompleted kept me inspired! Also best believe if you are looking for a similar pair there are some good dupes out there!!!

Love yall,

Favorite Sunnies for Summer

Hey y'all today on the blog I am sharing my current favorite sunnies!

I personally like to invest in accessories in high and low fashion as they can really upgrade an outfit! Also I have to note that you do t always have to splurge on accessories either! It's all in how you style it!!

1. Blacked Out Sunnies-

 Y'all I love these sunnies they are by far my favorite and go to! I have an oval face so certain shapes of glasses look better than others! Aviators styles are my style and so I have been taking intentional risks and trying new styles hence this post!

To Shop Black Sunglasses:

2. Classic Aviators

Ray Ban  are my go tos! I have several pair even a pair of blue frames Ray-Bans! If you don't want to splurge you can always check out your local clothing store as this style is usually available for the low-low!
Think Tom Cruise from Top Gun- Instant Pilot Status lol

To Shop Aviators:

3. Colorful Mirrored Shades

These  mirrored colorful shades! These are so fun y'all! If you are looking to mix up your style and add a pop of color! These are the ones for you! With this outfit I could see it being paired with like colorful sweats from the eighties and some futuristic sneaks!

Also I could see them accessorizing a casual Tuesday type of vibe with jeans and a casual tee!
To shop these Colorful Sunnies:

4. Mini Cat-Eye Frames- πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯

These are soo hot on the trend report! If you are looking for the fashion forward of the list this is it!!
To shop the frames from LuLus above click here

These right here are fyahh and have been all over the celebrity circuit!
 IE: Kylie Jenner, Kim Kardashian & Riri(below)

To Shop Mini Cat-Eyes:

5. Round-Shaped Sunglasses- 

These glasses make me feel like I am in my 60s! Like bell bottoms and platform shoes! Seriously soo cute! To shop

- 80s Inspired Gucci Round Sunglasses
Another look below:

To shop for Round Shaped Glasses:

6. Jeweled Frames- 

My Versace's pictured above have been my go to when I am in an all white or all black look! They were a splurge but well worth it as they have lasted several summer seasons!

7. Leopard Sunnies Baby..

Last but certainly not least! I have several pair of leopard style sunnies! They are great also for a very neutral style outfit and spices it's up! Also is a good idea if you have a mixture of prints already and adding the leopard print goes well!

To check out each style feel free to click as there is a mix of high and low end sunnies! Sunnies are perfect for the summer as they protect your eyes and can also double as a headband!

Last tip....

is when looking for sunglasses make sure you keep in mind if they are polarized as it cuts the sunlight they say and cuts the glare so make sure you keep at least one pair of sunglasses on hand that are polarized. You'll thank me later!

Til next time,
Peace & Love,

#Training Thursday Quick 30 Minute HIIT Workout

That moment where you have to stop and take a picture when the blooms match your outfit!!
Hey yall today on the blog I am sharing an easy 30 minute workout that you can do at the track or even at your local gym!  
This workout I did recently really pushed me as is key as I am training for a 5k this month!

I personally have been taking my workout routine up a notch as I feel like I need to be more consistent as the overall benefits of working out are immeasurable!


15-20 Minutes of Sprints Sprints are so good for fat burning and high-intensity training 
Alternate between either (1 minute of rest of 30 seconds of rest depending on your skill level!
100 Crunches
100 Situps
100 Ab Twists
75 Mountain Climbers(great for legs and glutes!)
If time allows then I recommend doing another setup mountain climbers!!
Your legs will be on fire!!

This workout for me was seriously soo fyahh as I am targeting my ABS!!
And also I am a sprinter so it allows me to increase my speed which is KEY!!

Hope yall enjoyed the post I will be keeping you updated before the race and let you know how it goes!

til next time,
Peace & Love,

LunaBar x U.S Womens National Soccer Team Blue Laces Collab


Yall this #collab has been my favorite for a number of reasons but mainly its about #WomenEmpowerment and how badass the players of the US. Womens National Soccer Team was and how they proactively stood up and said the pay inequality was not right! 

I wear my blue laces to show support for the U.S Soccer Team, because someday women's goals will be worth as much a mans! That someday is now! Lets go!

Whats seriously so amazing about this collab is how LUNA stepped up and showed support
On Equal Pay Day 2019 (April 2), LUNA Bar stepped up with a donation to the players of the U.S. Women’s National Team (USWNT), closing a key gap between their 2019 World Cup compensation and the players on the U.S. Men’s National Team. Believing in equal pay for equal work, LUNA Bar gave each of the 23 women named to the 2019 USWNT World Cup team $31,250, comprising the difference between the women’s and men’s World Cup roster bonus!

Thats what I am talking about!!
