Friday Favorites | The Last One Before Christmas

TGIF all!!! We made it to another Friday and there is only one more before 2015...isn't that crazy!? In case you missed last week's recap I mentioned what a great workout Flywheel was. Well I wanted to try out another spin studio here in Boston and to say I'm obsessed would be an understatement! I signed up for a few more classes and look forward to having my butt kicked!! Imagine doing push-ups on a bike while still spinning...that's what the class was like!! Ok....now that we have that out of the way - let's share some favorites with Amanda and Christina!! 

Favorite DIY


Favorite Workout

I have to admit, if I'm not taking a class at the gym, it's hard for me to follow a routine, so this HIIT workout was a nice change of pace from my regular cardio and weight training. I had the main studio in the gym all to myself yesterday morning so I was able to do everything in one place which would have been the same if I had done it at home...minus a lot of space! 

Favorite Hairstyle

I stumbled upon this tutorial for a French Braid into a messy bun and I'm totally intrigued. This past summer I learned how to do a fishtail braid so maybe my next one will be a french braid...baby steps!! There is a YouTube video tutorial to help!

Favorite Look

This is actually from a premier last week but I just love how mod Reese Witherspoon looks! Totally channeling her inner Elle Woods!!

  2. I'm obsessed with that DIY door hanger and the hairstyle. Have you done either one? I don't think the hairstyle would come out right for me. But that door hanger... I'm swooning over it!

    Have a great weekend!

  18. I love that DIY. I'm a big fan of chalkboard paint and have gotten a little carried away in the past, but that is just so cute. I just started getting into HIIT workouts so I appreciate that recommendation. Plus, I'm going to be on the beach in less than a week...yikes!! Also, I really need to start practicing my braids.

  19. How cute is the DIY?! Love the rustic look! That hair is gorg! But I don't know if I would have enough hair haha! When I do french braids even if I fluff them they never look like that! Ugh! Have a great weekend!
