Monday Morning

1/30/2012


{A good reminder}
{Amazing lashes + nude lips}
{Have you tried the new ballet-based classes that are all the rage? I just started going to Xtend Barre and love it}
{What do you think of the peplum trend? It may be hard to pull off, but when done right - like above - I think it's perfection}
{I'm not sure if I would ever chose this in real-life, but it's charming nonetheless}
 Well, it's Monday again, but we really made the most of the weekend. Friday night was spent sipping margaritas and trying the best chicken tortilla soup I've ever had. A pretty perfect date night if you ask me. 


After a long run and some blogging time in the morning, Saturday was spent celebrating our friend Cooper's birthday. It was 80 degrees out so we took advantage by popping some champagne and enjoying it on the water. After mai tais and burgers (it was quite a decadent day!) we called it an early night. 


After getting the usual non-glamorous Sunday to-dos (groceries, laundry, cleaning) and another long run (we're running a 10K next weekend) out of the way, we spent Sunday walking Torrey Pines for the Farmers Insurance Open. How was your weekend?

80 degrees? I'm so jealous of your perfect, gorgeous weather!
I would LOVE to try this ballet-based class. How have I never heard of it?! Do they offer these classes at gyms? Or where do I need to look to take this class?

We enjoyed the nice California weather as well and spent Saturday at the park.

I haven't tried the barre workout but would love to. I need to mix up my workouts.

I love the long lashes with the nude lips - so chic! Having spent years at the Barre (dancing ;) growing up, I imagine it's a great workout! There is a local facility near me.. I need to get over there! Enjoy your day.

I absolutely love the washroom wallpaper. It's so fun! I do think I would tire of it rather quickly - but it's still great none-the-less!

I used to be a ballerina, and now I am toying with the idea of taking a class for fun!
