Workout Gear Under $100

January 16, 2018

active wear under $150

You may have seen in my 2018 goals post that I am going to continue to prioritize my health and fitness this year and so far, things have been going pretty well! I’m never sorry about getting to a workout class, even if I really have to motivate myself to leave my apartment. (Particularly when the weather has been so frigid!)

Over the years, I’ve come to realize that I am not above using cute, new workout gear as one of my motivating factors. So I thought a round up of some of my favorite items + a couple things I have my eye on would be the perfect first budget buys post of 2018! All items are under $100 this month which should make it even easier to give your active wear the perfect update for the new year.


New York Staycation

New York Staycation I wit & whimsy

I hope you guys had a good weekend! I largely spent mine recovering from my two-day migraine last week but was glad to be able to still be able to make it to some of the plans I had with friends. I also got in three workouts which felt like it was just what my body needed after two days of bed rest.

For today’s post I wanted to share a bit about my little staycation the other weekend! Upon signing on to do another project with dr. brandt, I decided to do so in a new setting as my bathroom isn’t the most photogenic. I originally figured I’d ask a hotel to shoot in a room for one hour but then decided “why not stay the night?” and so I booked a room at The Ludlow Hotel  and the staycation ended up being exactly what I needed!

Weekly Roundup

January 12, 2018

CasualDespite it being the first full week of the year, it flew by. The best part of my week was taking my first French class at Coucou – I’m dusting off my French minor! And the low point was waking up with a migraine yesterday which kind of shot my whole day. I had to stay in bed for the first part of the day but finally peeled myself up around 1 and got some work done but felt pretty awful. I have a long history with headaches and used to get migraines far more frequently but despite that I still am always amazed at how much they can make you feel downright miserable.

This weekend I have a farewell for a friend moving back West, another friend in town from Boston and some workouts on my calendar. I will also be doing my French homework (!) and hopefully get in some downtime, too.  What do you have planned!?
