9. Maya Rudolph & Kristen Wiig

This combo was so sensational during the Oscars! I feel like they stole the show and these looks they were serving definitely needed an award!! They should look into being hosts next year because they would kill it! BridesmaidsTWO huh??



10. Natalie Portman

 This dress is so so chic, effortless and glam! To make the whole look even more statement-making Natalie had all of the women's directors names embroidered on the cape who were shut out of the Oscars!  


11. Brie Larson 

This look was seriously looked so stunning in this gorgeous number! With the matching cape and the jewels together this ensemble ranks as one of her best looks in my opinion!!

Yall all of these looks just seriously inspired me sooo much and I remember as a teen being so mesmerized by award season and it seriously still rings trues! 
These fyahhh looks seriously encouraged me to keep stepping my fashion game up but they also re-affirm why I picked up my pen years ago..... as fashion still lights up my soul!!

#CURRENT STATEMENT MAKING PIECES Jan ed. 2020

Current Fav #HighLow Statement Pieces


Hey yall today on the blog I am sharing some of my favorite statement-making pieces.
As this is the January edition its mainly focused on winter wear. Several of the pieces can be transitioned into fall like the one above but definetly they are pieces that are trendy will most likely still be sooo hottt in 2020!!

1. LEATHER JACKET:

Yall, the jacket above has seriously been my go-to for the past two months! I am sooo obsessed with the color! This jacket is from Charlotte Russe and I actually got it from a local consignment shop on top of that! As you can see from above I just pair it with an all-black outfit and boom I'm dressed up!
For more of my favorites: 




2. HEADBANDS:


Yall headbands are perfect if you are having a bad hair day or just want to add a little pop to your outfit! I use them when my hair is not looking as fresh as it should be! this is a great tip if your braids or weave needs a refresh! Headbands will help you buy a couple of days! 

To shop some of my favs:






3. HANDBAGS:

Need I say more! Handbags can take any outfit from blah to YASSS honey!
To shop the Lipstick purse click here! SPLURGE-WORTHY!!
Regarding my personal style I have a range of low end purses like an

 essential brown bucket bag pictured here to my classic Louie!

I highly recommend you invest in a signature luxury handbag!
The thing is that no one tells you is that you could purchase a luxury handbag (pre-owned aka pre-loved) or you could even rent it! Yall Im so serious! I am dedicated a full #blogpost about purchasing luxury handbags so stay tuned!
For some of my favs:




4. SNEAKS


Sneakers are perfect to dress down a outfit and also as a mood booster to kick butt in the gym!

these are some of current favs!!
All of these range in price from under $100 to upwards of $600
 Sneaks Favs: 





5. BLAZERS:



Missguided & Asos has several oversized blazers that are under $100 and can help you still get that fab look!
Also, I highly recommend you visit your local thrift store and check out the men's blazers as you are more likely to find a bigger jacket with a crazy sexy cool vibe!
Currently fav blazers:

Thank yall for the checking out some of my favorite statement-making pieces! The best thing about high/low fashion is that you don't have to splurge on the statement-making pieces but if you know how to style it, it will look like you splurged.

Great Workouts to Start 2020 with a Bang!

Start 2020 with a BANG!!


Hey y'all today on the blog I'm sharing some of my favorite at-home workouts to help
You kickstart the new year. I personally have a big goal this year to run several
More 5ks and a 10k!

If you are having a hard time getting started on your goal then I Definitely recommend for you to watch the video below!

I personally find that when I need a kick in you know what I watch a 3-4 minute motivational video.

HIIT Treadmill:
High-Intensity Training is supposed to be a fat burner and as a sprinter, I find it so helpful for a quick workout
I have been doing an incremental workout lately on the treadmill that has been paying off for me! Regardless of the amount of time I have to work out just doing a 15-minute workout was impactful.
Basically what you do is walk 30 seconds and sprint 90 seconds and then alternate it. The goal is to be able to sprint the full 2 minutes. If 30 seconds is not enough to rest increase to a minute and walk one minute and run one minute.
Basically, it will look like this for a 20-minute workout
0:00-1:30 Sprint -Light intensity-;warmup rate
1:30-2:00 Walk
2-3:30 Sprint at Medium Speed
3:30-4 Walk
4:00-5:30 Sprint at Full Speed
5:30-6:00 Walk

Repeat the sets to the amount of time for the workout

Make sure you warm up before with at least 7-10 minutes of stretching.

And make sure you also cool down with good stretching. This is a step I never skip as I have pulled muscles in the past and its all because I was rushing. Don't make this mistake!

#Abs


The Best abs video I have used I have not been able to get thru all 7 days and yall thats definelty on my resolutions list this year!




#Leg Day:






Britnee Babe gives so many workouts that you do at home with no equipment! Seriously I am a big fan of her easy and kick-ass workouts!!



#Yoga

Adrienne is an Austin based Yoga teacher that has an amazing yoga community and she makes so many amazing videos for any fitness levels!

This video is great for cool downs after a long workout as well!



Hope yall enjoy today's post and this will encourage you to get started on your fitness journey!

Peace & Love,
Karen Beatty-Martinezđź’•
