Loving Lately: 4 Recent Favs

Don’t count the days, make the days count

-Muhammad Ali

Hi everyone! Welcome to May, & summer?!  Anyone else?!

I had to participate in an outdoor sand Volleyball tournament last Friday & almost melted to my death.  Of course it was the hottest day we’ve had so far at 90 degrees.  I couldn’t drink enough water to keep myself hydrated & went home with a huge headache Friday.   On the plus side, 1 of the 4 games was a personal success in my book.  The other 3 had a few errors that I’m choosing to ignore.  I’m very competitive so I hate sucking at things.


Lately, I have a few new favorites I’ve happily stumbled upon, so lets share!



Nude Gel Polish:

I’m a nail bitter so I have to have my nails done or I’ll constantly be messing with them.  I love hot pinks, blue, purples, white, or really any color nail.

I have no fear when it comes to nail color.  I typically keep them really short because I’ve always thought they look better that way, until recently.  I decided not to cut my nails the last time I went for a manicure & tried a very nude color, so the length wouldn’t be obvious.

I’m obsessed.  I didn’t think nude would work for me… because I’m bright. But it does!  Classy, clean, easy, goes with everything.

I chose “Bubble Bath” Gel from Opi, ask for it next time you go!


Victoria’s Secret Knockout Sport Tights:

I know I already shared my love for VS’s sports bra’s but I’ve also been loving their tights which deserves attention too.  Again, not as expensive as other brands & in my opinion they’re better.  Breathable, move with you as you work out, high wasted, comfortable, and I’m loving the styles.  Every time I VS tights to workout someone asks where I got them.  All those Lululemon & Aloyoga people don’t know what hit them when I say Victoria’s Secret.  Also, they aren’t as thick & hot as true Yoga pants from those other brands are.

And trust me – NOT see-through.  I do several squats in a variety of lighting scenarios and I make Wafiq approve the see-through strength prior to any pants being worn in public.  We’ve seen one too many ass cracks in our workouts to take any chances.


Kygo Station on Pandora:

The perfect music station for summer!  I have this station going all, the, time.  Of course with intermediate breaks for the Jazz station but Kygo has me going.

I’m having a party MondayFriday in my earphones & I’m pretty happy about it.  The perfect music to get yourself in the summer ready mood!  I also happened to see Kygo at Austin City Music Festival last year & I loved it.  Anything to get people moving & feeling is right up my ally.


Kylie Cosmetics Lip Gloss: 

I love lip glosses but don’t love most lip gloss products.   I can’t find any that I like!  Kylie’s glosses are good you guys, really good. I know it’s hard to support & believe in a millionaire 19 year old’s cosmetic business, but that’s life.

If you empty my purse at any time you’ll find “Damn Gina” gloss inside, but I know all of her glosses are really good.  Super shiny & they DO stay put longer than many others. Also, not nearly as expensive as other brands.  My favorite look is huge sunglasses, oil on my face, and gloss on my lips. That’s it! OH! And a spray tan… Of course.



Besides my regular favorites, the above are a few I’ve added to the list.

Anyone have favorites to share?

I realized I don’t have very many beauty products lately as I’ve cut WAY down on wearing makeup.  Even the weekends can be pretty bare.  When it’s so hot, everything melts off your face anyway – sunscreen turns into the only option.

Everyone, have a great rest of the week & be thoughtful!

The Best Sports Bra to Hold In Your Ting Tangs

Did You Know? Women simply don’t have the genetic potential to develop bulky muscles. They don’t have sufficient amounts of testosterone — the hormone largely responsible for the development of muscle bulk.

( v i a )

If you’ve ever struggled finding a good sports bra that isn’t $1,000 then you’ll understand this post.  I played sports a lot when I was younger and have always enjoyed running or working out so a sports bra is an essential part of my closet.  I don’t care if they’re cute,  I care that they hold my ting tangs still.  I HATED the times I’d be wearing a bra that wasn’t strong enough & my ting tang’s bounced around for everyone to see during my runs.  UGH, also so unflattering. Oooga Oooga Oooga. Just no. No. No.

Victoria Secret sports bra

This reminds of the time Wafiq & I were hiking this very popular hill in Los Angeles and we saw this woman we nicknamed: “Dagger Tits”.

 She came plowing down the hill, full speed ahead.  Super athletic, marine woman – confident.  Wearing a very little, ocean blue, Yoga style, triangle bra covering each of her areolas.  Unfortunately, her small breasts went up & down so severely it was if they were each a gun being shot off in an old western stand-off.  Pew pew pew pew!  Cutting the air like a sharp blade.  Pointed. Up, then down, then up! Then down.  We cringed in pain.  We may lose a breast here.  That is one of the many moments I can use to advocate the importance of a strong sports bra.

Anyways, I doubted the Victoria’s Secret sports bras for a long time because they’re cute, they claim to be “push ups, and VS is not known as an athletic company.  Not the formula for nailing down the chest.

Until recently when I needed new sports bras & I was totally unhappy with what I had.  I knew there had to be better & I could only hope at an affordable price…

Because I found this Victoria’s Secret sports bra for $35 I thought – fuck it.  Why not give it a try, better than spending tons of money on another one that might not even work.

Well, lets thank the heavens because this bad boy holds your ting tangs STILL.  And the bra is cute, comfortable, AND affordable!  I went back the next day & bought 3 more.  I’m not sure what girls with little chesties will think, I’m sure that’s an entire different situation – but if you want something to hold everything in, this is it!

Side note, the bra’s with the clips on the back like this one: HERE, can dig into your back a little if you’re doing something laying down.  Not awful but if you’re sensitive, take that into consideration.  Don’t worry, there’s also options where the bra clips in the front, like this one: HERE.

If you’re having trouble staying motivated for your work outs try buying some new workout gear that you’re excited to wear.  It sounds silly but really makes a difference.  It makes you really want to get out there & work hard! Feel good.  Look good. Workout good.

That’s it for my Monday!  Off to celebrate my dog learning to fetch me her Kong for peanut butter treats! OUI!

Have a great day, and be thoughtful,
