Fit Fashion Club: AKT in Motion for Target

Hello hello!  Another edition of Fit Fashion Club coming your way today!  If you are as obsessed with activewear as I am, you are always looking for the next cute thing!  I was really excited to stumble upon this amazing collaboration between AKT in Motion and Target. * 

I’ve been a big fan of AKT in Motion for a long time.  I love their dance cardio classes because they work up a great sweat plus the toning sections are pretty challenging.  Since I no longer live in NYC, I keep up with the dance classes online.  It is my go-to cardio!  And, of course, I’m a huge fan of Target.  I mean, it has everything!!  So when I heard that there would be a collaboration of AKT in Motion for Target, I was there!

DIY Blowout with DryBar Tool Kit

Hi friends! Our trip to the US has ended and we are on our way home now.  It was a whirlwind!!  I’ll be recapping more in the next few weeks but today I wanted to tell you about the DryBarTool Kit I recently purchased. It is the answer to my DIY Blowout prayers.*

I’ve been a fan of DryBar for a few years now.  I love their blowouts so much and the concept of a quick and inexpensive blowout is totally for me.  I actually get really frustrated when I get my hair done and I walk out looking like I just dried my own hair.  I love how it always looks fantastic after leaving DryBar and they aren’t shy in the products either.

Fit Fashion Club: PopFlex Dark Bloom & Kate Spade Activewear

Hello hello!  How was your weekend?  I spent mine in Pilates training.  Even though I already have my mat certification, I wanted to explore a certification program that went deeper into the exercises and also could progress beyond mat.  I chose Balanced Body because I love practicing on their equipment and they have a comprehensive training program that goes well beyond just basic mat.  So training 1 is done and now I just have to log my practice hours before moving on to more trainings!  I’m hoping to become certified by the Pilates Method Alliance (PMA) after I complete my Balanced Body training. 

Knowing that I was going to be around some amazing Pilates people this weekend, I knew I was going to have to look the part.  So I decided to check out two new lines that had my curiosity peaked: PopFlex Active’s Dark Bloom Collection and Kate Spade Beyond Yoga’s Spring Collaboration.

Let’s talk about shoes.  I have been on a barre shoe kick lately.  I love sticky socks but why turn up an opportunity to collect more shoes into my closet!?!  A girls’ gotta live.

Today I want to talk about the Nike Studio Wrap Shoe.  I’ve been coveting this shoe for years!  I’ve even recommended it here on the blog before.  Finally this year as a gift my brother and sister-in-law gave them to me and I couldn’t be happier!
