Cold Shoulder

MYNT 1792 Cold Shoulder Dress on Authentically Emmie

I mentioned trying to go out of my style comfort zone, and this dress 100% pushed me out of it! Back in August I had the red version of this cold shoulder dress from MYNT 1792. I didn't think I liked it much at the time, but when I saw the photos, I totally changed my tune. When I saw that Gwynnie Bee got the new blue python print version of this dress, I decided to just go for it. MYNT 1792 Cold Shoulder Dress in Python Blue c/o Gwynnie Continue Reading

Friday Five

Suspend Louisville

Woah, I'm exhausted! Travel always wears me the hell out, and this week has been slammed with work and trying to catch up from total lack of sleep during Fitbloggin' - not that I'm complaining!

Fifth Fitbloggin’!

My friends from home usually give puzzled looks as I get wound up prior to the conference: I get to see all my internet friends! But they're real friends! But I know them from online! But they're real! Yeah, I'm real eloquent at times. *eyeroll* To be honest, I feel like many Continue Reading

#TransparentTuesday: Better Than Yesterday

The only person you should try to be better than is the person you were yesterday.

Hello and welcome to another edition of #TransparentTuesday! During #TransparentTuesday, we remove the rosy filters of social media and share real life.  Between travel and tonsil abscesses and ER visits, I broke my workout streak. Balance and consistency are things I'm working hard on, so the workouts on my calendar felt so good to cross off. Honestly, it's one of the few areas on my life where I felt in-control. I felt stronger and like I Continue Reading
