    ♥ Hey Babes ♥

    With the holiday season just around the corner, I have been hitting the gym even more than usual to ensure I stay fit during a season I typically over indulge in hehe :p I always love to snack on freshly baked cookies or eat that extra serving of Thanksgiving dinner etc so that means I need to hit the gym hard to avoid going overboard :p My only struggle? Making sure I have the right gear to keep me on track + keep me healthy.

    While the holiday season is a time I love because of yummy treats, spending time with family + friends, and of course…presents haha One thing I am not a fan of is getting sick due to Cold + Flu Season. How does a busy gal avoid getting sick? (especially at the gym where the equipment always needs a good wipe down) Easy…use Kleenex® Wet Wipes!

    New Kleenex® Wet Wipes* are Made for Doers™ – people who act with purpose and aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty – to help them keep going, without slowing down. That is ME! Year round I have a hectic + busy schedule, but during the holiday season, it pretty much triples. That means I have absolutely no time to get sick! Luckily, Kleenex® Wet Wipes Germ Removal* wipes are clinically proven to wipe away 99 percent of germs from skin without harsh chemicals. This is why I keep Kleenex® Wet Wipes in my gym bag all the time!

    While my water bottle is with me to keep me hydrated, my weights are with me to tone up while doing cardio, my Kleenex® Wet Wipes are with me to wipe down gym equipment before I use it and they are also perfect to clean my face, neck + chest post workout prevent that sweaty feeling!

    Now I know what you are thinking…are these wipes safe to use to wipe my forehead etc post workout? The answer is YES! Kleenex® Wet Wipes* are available in three unique varieties to bring the gentle cleansing power of water to you anytime, anywhere. All are dermatologist tested, hypoallergenic and contain no alcohol. Kleenex® Wet Wipes* are thick and soft, contain no harsh chemicals (vs leading national brand of hands and face wipes), and are designed for everyday use on hands and face. Now that is what I call a WIN/ WIN!

    In addition to bringing them with me to the gym, I often keep a pack in my car for after I fill up at the gas station, a pack at home for after meals (my boyfriend + I are messy eaters haha) + I even keep a pack in my purse…you know because you never know when you’ll want a quick wipe down while out + about.

    What I find to be so important during the holiday season is to constantly clean + prevent germs from getting the best of you. Now there is a product that helps you not just clean, but also stay healthy + germ free during the busiest cold + flu season!

    Jenny Journey Journal Vol. 1…

    *Thank You Jenny Craig for sponsoring this post! Tried other weight loss programs? It’s time for Jenny Craig*

    ♥ Happy Tuesday Ya’ll ♥

    I hope you all had a great Labor Day weekend! I got plenty of rest + actually a ton of work accomplished thanks to having a clear inbox hehe :p Usually holiday weekends would give me an excuse to pig out + over eat, which would then be followed by guilt + plenty of bloating afterwards. This past weekend was far from that case. Why? Because for the past 6 weeks, I have been taking care of myself, my weight + my health by joining the Jenny Craig Rapid Results program!

    ICYMI – I have been struggling with my weight ever since I was a kid. I tried tons of fad diets, medication etc + none of it was a long term solution, so when I discovered Jenny Craig + how easy the program is to incorporate into your life I was on board.

    Rather than go into a lengthy story about my weight loss struggles, I think we should just dive right into how Jenny Craig has already changed my life, my daily routine + my confidence in myself in just 6 weeks! Yes…SIX weeks people! This is my first installment of my Jenny Journey Journal.

    Here’s a brief overview of How The Program Works

    When you take the first step towards your Jenny Craig journey, you are set up with a consultant who will go over your weight loss goals, your fears, thoughts, concerns etc. Basically your best friend for weight loss (I LOVE my consultant Barbara who I chat with once a week on the phone).

    Based on my goals of wanting to loose between 60-80 pounds, they suggested I do the Rapid Results program, it provides results you can see + feel in no time.

    What makes Jenny Craig different from other weight loss programs is that it takes the guess work out of how to loose weight. While in the past I had to count calories, meal prep + try to figure out what I should and shouldn’t be eating on a daily basis, Jenny Craig handles all of that for me!!

    Every 2 weeks Jenny Craig delivers you ALL the food you need to achieve your weight loss goals. Their chefs count the calories, sugar, fiber + all the other important factors for you and create delicious meals that will seem the farthest thing from your typical diet.

    What I love about Jenny Craig is that it is fool proof. Every delivery comes with your yummy food + menu that you follow step by step for success. Everyday you weigh yourself to hold yourself accountable + keep yourself on track to achieve your goals!

    The food is so good – like no joke guys, it isn’t eating rice cakes + kale (ewww I always hated that part of dieting :p). On Jenny Craig, I get to eat pizza, chocolate cake, pancakes + more! I am not kidding…with Jenny Craig it is all about portion control. I find myself over time being less + less hungry because I get to eat 6 times a day (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner + snacks in between) and my stomach has trained itself to accept the lower calorie intake.

    The food is all delivered frozen, just pop it in the microwave + BAM you are ready to go. No guessing, no cooking, no calorie counting…just eating :p

    If you don’t believe me, scroll back up to the first image in this post…that is one of my Jenny Craig breakfast meals…waffles with syrup paired with fruit! How yummy does that look?!

    Now to the fun part, my take on the program so far!

    In just under 6 weeks I have lost 16 pounds!!!

    (this is a little above average for the Rapid Results program) Average weight lost in study was 11.6 pounds in the first 4 weeks for those who completed the program.

    Never before did I see results so quickly without weight loss pills or starving myself etc. Just seeing these exciting results in such a short time frame has made me feel like I can accomplish my weight loss goals because every day I see the number on the scale decreasing. It is truly the best feeling!

    While this is just entry ONE in my Jenny Journey Journal, I am already so excited to share my continued results + journey with you all. Take it from a gal who has struggled with over eating, unhealthy habits + more…Jenny Craig is not just helping me loose weight, but also change my lifestyle for the better!

    College Fashion Week LA Recap…

Saturday night I had the opportunity to attend College Fashion Week here in LA with my blogger gal pal Natalie of HashTagFablife (if you love beauty tutorials + fashion tips, you will love her site). The event was in Culver City + it was made up of 4 different ‘mini’ fashion shows where college students were the models walking the runway! There was sorority wear, night out wear + preppy wear.

    Other than the cute styles rocked by fab college students (which I thought was so great for them btw – I love young gals getting to strut their confidence in a positive way)! Talk about Women Empowering Women ♥  In between each runway show guests had the chance to explore some of the great sponsors (like getting brow services from European Wax Center…my favorite). But, the best sponsors came from the styles the gals got to wear down the runway!

    First, I should mention I was lucky enough to get the ‘VIP‘ treatment while attending College Fashion Week…meaning I got to sit front row + I received the best swag bag ever! (more about that later :p)

    The models each wore different designers in all four shows, but each look consisted of handbags from Rebecca Minkoff (so it kinda worked out perfect that I wore my favorite Rebecca Minkoff Affair Bag to the show myself hehe), watches from Bertha Watches + shoes from Vince Camuto (yup you guessed it, my pumps worn here were actually from Vince Camuto as well haha).

    I think Rebecca Minkoff + Vince Camuto are great brands for college students to wear since they have a luxury feel at a convenient price point 🙂 I definitely have my fair share of picks from both brands!

    Other sponsors included Perfumania, Drybar + Fitbit!

    For these fun sponsors I am going to reveal what was in my swag bag because TBH it is pretty major…

    I love finding new fragrances that really help me feel great everyday – honestly, when you smell good, you feel good (in my opinion at least). Perfumania has a wide array of fragrances, sets + designers. Whether you are looking for a classic sent from Chanel or a new fresh sent from let’s say Juicy Couture (this perfume smells…amazing, no joke)…Perfumania has got ya covered!

    I have wanted to try Fitbit forever…I am not a savvy fitness gal but I want to be able to track my steps, my calories + more to make sure I am at least on a track for success! I think Fitbit Flex 2 is great for that since it works with your lifestyle + with the thin design it looks stylish no matter what outfit you are wearing.

    Drybar was probably one of my favorite sponsors! I have already been obsessed with their dry shampoo + some other products, so I am super pumped about trying Triple Sec, which I heard is a fan favorite. And…my favorite thing? Drybar gave a complimentary blowout to all attendees (which I am off to go use as we speak :p)!

    Two other sponsors were Hanes + Maidenform (pretty much the essentials for undergarments which are the foundation of any look)! Their newest styles are great to wear with any outfit no matter what the cut or fit 😉

    The entire College Fashion Week experience was also sponsored by People StyleWatch (one of my go to magazines for fashion inspo + news)!

    Here’s some of what was in my bag:

    I highly encourage all of you to try and attend College Fashion Week in your city next year!
