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!!

These right here are fyahh and have been all over the celebrity circuit!

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

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!!
