A Stylish Fit Intro

Friday has arrived and this means we are but a mere week away from Christmas. I hope you are enjoying the season but I know it can be a difficult time for some. If that is you, please know I wish I could hug you! Really, I do and I just wanted to say that….I just wanted you to know that.

Well, today marks the beginning of a transition for me and this little ole blog. I have wanted to re-brand this blog for quite a while. It took me f.o.r.e.v.e.r. to decide on a new name. I knew the direction I wanted to go but the name tripped me up. So I’m really excited to be taking this leap to A Stylish Fit. For now the blog theme will remain the same…for now.Allura-greatvibes

 

I will continue to share style along with my passion to live a fit and healthy life. Oh, and life, yep I will be sharing more of me as person. You know, opening the doors to my life and letting you sit on the couch with me to enjoy a great cup of joe and spectacular conversations too. Well, that might be a little hypothetically speaking about the couch and such but you just never know when our lives might collide in person. It could happen and I would love that!

I want to give you a little preview of what you might see in the future.

1. Style of course! I hope to encourage you to remix your closet because that’s what I plan to be doing more of in 2017. I have a grand idea or two brewing that I will be unfolding in the coming weeks.

Just in case you would like some guides to help you remix your wardrobe, I wanted to share some links that could assist you to start with the basics. My friend Caitlin at Greater than Rubies is a pro at remixing her wardrobe. Her guides are fabulous. To be honest, these guides would make great last-minute gifts too. If you use the code HELLOLOVELY you will receive 40% off! That’s a steal, friends!

2. Since food and fitness are huge part of my life {especially at 53} I want to be more intentional to share that with you. Hopefully, I can inspire you on your healthy life journey. I am a Beachbody coach and am a confirmed believer of their products. Shakeology finds it way into my tummy daily. Recently, I took the 3 Day Refresh challenge. It motivated me to remove wheat, dairy and sugar from diet for 21 days. I’ll finish this extra part of a self-imposed challenge on Saturday. I cannot wait to share more of this part of my fit life with you! If you are interested in an upcoming challenge group or help on your fitness journey, please complete the contact form at the end of this post.

3. Are you a journaling person? I want to be but that doesn’t always last long for me. I purchased these fun notebookish items from May Designs. A new planner which is large enough for what I need but compact enough that it’s easy to stow away in my purse. I want to practice gratitude so I now have a journal to do just that. AND I want to learn calligraphy, so I have a fun little book for that too. Have you thought about something to pursue, learn, change, etc. in the new year? What is it?

4. As I try to live a more healthy lifestyle, I try to let that translate into more areas than exercise and nutrition. Lately, I am becoming more and more involved with Young Living Essential Oils. Through that journey I began to research skincare and makeup that has less toxins. Enter Beautycounter. I am learning so much and want to share that with you as well.

5. Last year I started the year by taking No Shopping Challenge – Shop Free for 3. Taking a pause for three months from shopping for clothing was really refreshing. The challenge has already started in the Facebook group and will be in full swing come January 1, 2017. Thinking about taking a challenge along these lines? Then join in! Just complete the contact form below and I’ll add you to the group!

Friends, that’s a little intro to where I plan to go in the coming months. I so hope you’ll be on this journey with me! Have a beautiful day and wonderful weekend! I hope to see you on Monday but sometimes technology has its own little mind.
