Let’s start this post off with an obvious Editor’s Note: Uhm, hello, baby hairs! I woke up too late to wash my hair, so up in a bun it went. Little did I realize how many new baby hairs I have growing – and growing wildly at the back of my head. I guess my daily biotin intake is definitely working…

It’s June. June. Already! This year has been quite the roller-coaster for me so far. I’ve gone through really great highs (so many – literally. I’m truly blessed.), but I’ve definitely had my share of really deep lows. I don’t think I’ve ever questioned so many things about my life as I have in the last 6 months – everything from past/current/future friendships, relationships, jobs, family history and dynamics, finances, etc. And while it’s been mentally and emotionally exhausting at times, I have faith that all of this work on myself will lead me to even greater and more meaningful experiences in the future.

Jonathan Adler and Garmin – Giveaway Time!

Working 9am to 5pm (or more like 9:30/10am to 7:30, 8:30, 10:30pm…) consists of me sitting in front of the computer typing and clicking away. Don’t get me wrong – I love my little computer and the work I do, but it means that I’m inactive for most of my hours during the workweek. And while I try to get myself to workout at least 3 times a week, my long work hours and my 2 hour+ commute every day can, many times, make it impossible for me to have the energy to even think about sweating.

But I’m a Capricorn. That means that we love obsess over setting goals for ourselves and working hard to meet them, whether personal or work-related. That’s why when Garmin reached out to me to try out their new fitness tracker, vívofit 2, I jumped at the opportunity. I’ll tell you why:

  1. The tracker learns your activity level and proposes a personalized daily goal for the number of steps you need to take each day. This is probably what I’ve been utilizing the most, checking to see if I have met my goal or not (and then figuring out ways to meet my daily goal, such as taking breaks to walk outside during the work day or coming home and walking around in my neighborhood).
  2. The tracker reminds you to stay active. This is super helpful in the office, as I can easily get lost with work and let hours go by without getting up from my desk.
  3. They’ve partnered with Jonathan Adler to create a collection of stylish, printed interchangeable bands for the vívofit 2 tracker. I swapped in the blue band so that my tracker would coordinate with the rest of my outfit.

And guess what? They’ve given me an extra vívofit 2 AND a Jonathan Adler Trio Band Pack to give away to one of you this Sunday, May 10th on my Instagram!

Be sure to follow me on Instagram so you don’t miss out.

Messy Hair Days

Ever have one of those really –  I mean really – crazy hair days? I do. My hair is neither curly nor straight and definitely requires some sort of maintenance in order to make it look presentable. I’m also not a morning person, so you can guess that I have my  share of mornings where I’m rushing out the door for my hour commute to work with wet hair in a bun or a side braid. And for those days where I can’t even manage to make those work, I have found that I have an insane love for hats.
