What’s happening my friends? Everyone enjoying the summer? It’s cooled off a bit here in
Southern Ontario and the weather has been lovely, though I’m sure those hot and humid temperatures are just waiting to make an appearance yet again.
I had an idea to start sharing some of the things I’ve been loving lately…or more like obsessing over 😉 There is a little bit of everything mixed in here; maybe you’ll find something new to obsessive over!
Ah music…I would be lost without it! I love listening to music when I work out; the right song can really pump me up and help me push harder. Amazing how music can do that, isn’t it? Here are a few songs I’ve been loving recently:
- Talk Dirty (feat. 2 Chainz) by Jason Derulo — I love the beat of this song, it’s pumped up yet sexy at the same time.
- Raise Your Glass by P!nk — This song is rockin’ and makes me want to break out and dance whenever I hear it, perfect for a workout.
- All About That Bass by Meghan Trainor — I am obsessed with this song! Especially the part that goes “My mama she told me don’t worry about your size, she says boys like a little more booty to hold at night”. Love love love!
One thing you may not know about me is that I have a small-obsession with make-up. I don’t paint myself up like a Barbie doll on a regular basis or anything (I much prefer the natural look) but I do love trying new products and playing around with new techniques. I regularly watch YouTube beauty gurus to learn about new products and tips I can add to my repertoire. Right now I’m loving Claire Marshall at Hey Claire. Claire is a beauty vlogger/blogger from Los Angeles, California and I’m just in love with her videos. Each one is like a little art project in itself and she takes the time to make what could be a boring video about lipstick into a total dance party. She covers everything from makeup and hair to fashion, and even vlogs about her daily life in LA living with her cat Bruce Lee. Definitely check her out.
I’m not sure if I ever mentioned this but a couple of months ago I bought a Fitbit. A Fitbit is a digital tracker that logs everything from how many steps you take per day to how much sleep you get per night (depending on the style of Fitbit you purchase). I purchased the Fitbit Flex, which is a tracker you wear around your wrist. I love my Fitbit! It lets me see how many steps I’m taking each day, with my goal set for 10,000 steps per day. When I reach 10,000 it vibrates and the little lights flash at me letting me know I’ve hit my goal. The one thing that I’ve really loved on my Fitbit is the sleep tracker. When I wear my Fitbit to bed and put it into sleep mode it tracks everything that happens at night—how many hours and minutes I sleep, how many times I was restless, how many times I woke up and for how long. It’s amazing. For someone who doesn’t sleep well, it’s been a real eye opener to see how much sleep I actually DON’T get.
That’s all for today my friends…have yourselves a lovely rest of the week!
