I’m Nominated!

Super excited that @fashionofpure nominated me for the Liebster Award! Thank you!! Everyone should go check out her fashion blog for outfit and style inspiration.

Below are my answers to @fashionofpure‘s questions:

How did you come up with the idea of starting your blog? 

I had a ton of photos in my phone from recent travels, new outfits, and things that inspire me daily, so I decided it was time to share with everyone!

Why is blogging important to you?

It’s my creative outlet. Most importantly, i genuinely enjoy doing it.

The one moment that motivated you to start your blog?

I was flying home from Atlanta (on a business trip) and I was scrolling through my photos from the trip (amazing restaurants, fashion, drinks, scenery, etc.) and I said to myself If I shared this information for others I’m sure they would find it helpful if they are traveling to Atlanta. Who doesn’t want some great restaurant tips or fun attractions to visit? And then my mind just filled with all of the other possibilities.

How is your blog different from the other blogs?

I read very few other blogs. I try to keep RTW unique to me and my inspirations. I think keeping your blog organic and true to yourself is so important. I hope that when others read RTW they are connecting directly with me, my visions and my life.

What is the one post made by you that you like the most, and why?

This is a tough one, but I’d have to say ‘Boyfriend Jeans’ because it was the most fun shooting the looks. My sister shoots all of my content and we laughed the entire day.

The one novel/song/movie that you relate to the most, and why?

Sunday Morning by Maroon 5. It’s my all time favorite. It reminds me of weekends spent laying with the one you love. What’s better than that?

If you could have one magical power, what would you want it to be?

To see the future. I am a planner. I like to know what’s happening, when it’s happening and how it’s happening. I guess I will just have to continue to wait and see what’s in store for me!

Which is your favorite clothing brand/designer and why?

Hmm.. There’s a lot!  But i’d have to say Free People.

The best piece of advice you’ve ever recieved?

To be happy – in all aspects of your life. Do what you have to do to make sure you are happy with your job, relationships, friendships, and most importantly yourself. There is no greater feeling than the balance of feeling content with all parts of your life.

A blogging trend you like the most and why?

Product reviews because they are so informative!

Your mantra success?

Find your happiness.

I would like to nominate the following 5 bloggers:

Wild 4 Makeup

De.Elle.Ci

Love, Lieve

Robinbee Blog

Newbie Blog

Fellow bloggers, please answer the same questions as i did above!

Adult Coloring Books

Long regarded as mere child’s play, coloring isn’t just for kids anymore. Who would’ve thought coloring as an adult could be so relaxing. Well it definitely is.

My brand new amazon prime membership has allowed me to purchase adult colorings book for less than $8 each, tons of colored pencils & markers and I recieve everything within 2 days.

Coloring is meditative for me. Very much like yoga, this is my zen.

Hope you find the same peacefulness while coloring!

Low Key Date Night

Chris and I love to go to the beach and watch the sunset as often as we can. We normally just go for an hour or so. It’s so peaceful and the perfect way to end the weekend.

This Sunday night, Chris suggested that we get some yummy desserts and go watch the sunset. I was totally on board because those are three of my favorite things in life: dessert, sunsets and my boyfriend. Can’t beat that! We picked up Talenti Carmel Cookie Crunch Gelato, Cheese Cake, Red Bulls, Pellegrino, and Strawberries.We went over to Robert Moses Field 2 around 6:30pm. The sky was a little cloudy, but the sunset was still amazing.

Sometimes I prefer to be at the beach with Chris and enjoying each others company rather than at a crowded restaurant where we can barely hear one another. Our low-key date night cost us $20. There is free parking during the evening at Robert Moses, so all we paid for was our desserts.

Tranquil scenery and good company is all you need. These cool summer nights are just a small reminder that Fall is right around the corner. I will miss these days.

Snow Cones Before The Gym

Let’s talk about snow cones.. No just kidding let’s talk about snow cone flavored pre workout.

This post is for my girls working that 9-5 and getting to the gym super early/late, moms trying to balance kids, life, your other child (your husband) and the gym, and anyone who needs some energy and some motivation to get to the gym!!!

I’ve never been a pre workout kinda gal, but my day starts at 5am, I get home around 7:15pm (as long as the LIRR is on-time, which is rare, but I’ll save that for another post) and I try to make it to the gym or hot yoga from 7:30-9. I don’t know about you, but by 7:30pm I’d like to crawl into bed and sleep straight through until the next morning, but I have more energy when I exercise, so I knew I needed to find a good pre-workout.

I found BPI Sports 1.M.R. Vortex (snow cone) at The Vitamin Shoppe and it has helped tremendously!!

I drink it on the train on the way home from work and by the time I get to the gym I have that tingly, “I need to keep moving” feeling! If you don’t have a sweet tooth this drink is not for you! It’s super sweet! They have two other flavors: sour watermelon and fruit punch. I haven’t tried them, but I’m sure they are good! I hope this pre workout supplement helps you to get excited and motivated about your workout like it has for me!
