There are some items I always gravity to on the weekends. My pink aerie sweater being one of them. It's so soft and cozy, plus it even goes great with my sweatpants...Which is my after weekend errands look. I can not wait for all of this snow to go away and to say goodbye to winter coats for good. I mean it is Spring after all!
What is your weekend uniform?

Between the snow storm last week and this week being "Spring Break" I need some island vibes. The only problem is when you're an adult that is going back to school to get her masters degree there is no such thing as a Spring Break. So instead I've been planning my vacation to Hawaii in May. I can't be more excited about it. Hawaii has felt like my home away from home and this time we are visiting the island Kauai then stopping by Oahu. Between looking up things to do, places to eat and drink...I've also been doing a little Island shopping.

Even when it comes to the gym I like to mix prints. I might not wear make-up to the studio but I make it up with my fashion fitness game. Gym clothes can be boring...I would know since 95% of my gym clothes are black and grays...so that's why I like to kick it up a notch by having fun and adding prints. J.Crew's line with New Balance is currently my new fitness craze. They released a line of crop tops that are perfect for you to wear from the on-the-go to the gym/studio. Since we are almost to Spring a layered printed sweater or compression top over a printed crop top adds a little warmth and flare to your gym look.

If you go to the gym as much as I do, picking the right hair products is super important. You don't want products that will dry or damage your hair...at the same time using expensive shampoos can break the bank. This is why I reach for Finesse, the active silk and soy proteins penetrate deep into the hair shaft, leaving my hair more moisturized and manageable. I love that with Finesse I can get the out of salon look everyday...for a lot less ($3.99 a bottle or at Walmart you can get it for $1.99!). Plus, I don't need to go to a specialty store to find it, I can just go to my local Rite Aid...and then continue to buy things I don't need like Sour Patch Kids.
What hair care products do you use daily?

This week kicks of SXSW...and once again I'm wishing I was there. If you are headed to SXSW there are few items that are must to take with you.
1. Cowboy Boots. I mean it is Texas after all. If you aren't sure if the country thing is your route opt for a pair of embellished booties...like these from Free people
2. Band Tee. Austin is all about the music scene so a band tee is much needed. A vintage one is even better.
3. Wide Brim Hat. Just like the cowboy boots if your not up to wearing a cowboy hat opt for a wide brim hat instead. Pair with a flowy dress for a boho look.
4. Sweaters. It's pretty warm down in Texas but at night it can get pretty chilly so pack smart and bring a couple of sweaters along with you.
5. Fringe Bag. A fringe bag is a must for any festival. Loving this Steven Madden bag plus the price is hard to beat!

Boohoo's fitness line is for all of us cool fitness chicks. This line is full of from the street to the studio looks. Boohoo was nice enough to hook me up with some gear and even some much needed yoga time. I was introduced to YogaWork's latest studio in SoHo. I'm by far no yogi. It's takes a lot for me to check my ego at the door. Along with not letting my mind take control of my body. My therapy is hitting the bar (and by bar I mean lifting heavy shit). Just like life, with workouts you need to have a balance. Adding yoga to my routine allows me to not only let me find my inner peace but the stretch my body so desperately needs.
Typically when I do yoga it's at home or at a smaller yoga space. YogaWorks SoHo is the prettiest studio space I have ever been too. And the biggest. It has 3 studios plus a small personal training studio, locker rooms with showers, 2 sitting areas, and tea stations. It is two stories of pure yogi heaven. I personally loved the little peaceful sitting area where you can drink tea and relax prior to your class. I also love that YogaWorks doesn't just offer yoga classes but they also offer classes like barre, sculpting, and TRX. Plus they offer different types of yoga classes from focusing on restoring your body to vinyasa yoga.
I chose to try their The Yoga Mix class, which is vinyasa yoga with pop music. The studio space I was in for this class was gorgeous -- with windows all around the room facing Broadway -- I could only imagine how beautiful it must be to take yoga in this space during the day with all the natural light coming through. The class itself was a tad more advance for me then I thought. I know some names of poses but sometimes I still need directions on body placement...next time I'll try a level down or even try one of their other body working classes.

No matter what you train or where you train Boohoo fit will make you feel like a badass. Even it's just me out on my deck doing some yoga I like to feel good. The best part for me is the price! A fitness freak I love my branded workout clothes but sometimes I just can't justify dropping $80 on a pair of leggings lets alone over $100 for a pair. Boohoo has prices well under $50, and feels just as good as those brands.
