that would be me, walking in the park today. in some serious workout clothes obviously.

So it turns out that I am actually enjoying this whole working out thing [says everybody on day two..wait until day 47]. But seriously, so far so good. The weird and almost bothersome thing is that ever since this challenge started I haven't ate that horrible (forget the two vending size bags of chips I had this morning at work) nor have I had much alcohol to drink. For example, I was going to go to Dunkin Donuts for breakfast this morning but then opted not to and just eat a breakfast bar instead. WHO DOES THAT?! Freaks, that's who. Before you know it I am going to be munching on kale and drinking spinach. Lord help me never get to that point. Not that there is anything wrong with eating kale and drinking spinach, but I prefer to enjoy life. Not saying that those of you who eat kale and drink spinach don't enjoy life...buuuuuuut lets be real. 

Speaking of real, I have a fancy little lady I would like you all to meet [one whom I'm sure you've already met so yes, somewhat of a buzz kill I know but bare with me]. 

That pretty face would be Lindsay from Pursuit of Pink. It's always weird claiming that you go way back with somebody who you have never actually met in real life before, but legit we go way back. I feel like I have known Lindsay for the majority of my blogging journey. I'm pretty sure it was her complexion that drew me to her originally. I know that sounds very on the surface, but hey, a great complexion is hard not to pay attention to. Then of course she had to go and be the freaking sweetest female ever so yeah, I was stuck loving her. 

Lindsay writes about all things life (including but not limited to being a mother and wife), fashion, skin care
and anything else that tickles her fancy. It's a little awkward because I want to eat her daughter. 

I mean seriously. I have never seen a ladybug look so cute. 

Recently she also became a consultant for Rodan + Fields (heeeeey yo, I just wrote about that) and thought it would be nice to give you all a little something. Well thank you Lindsay, we like little somethings around here. If you contact Lindsay at lindsaytolar@gmail.com, she will waive your preferred customer fee when using the code ERIN. This means you will receive 10% off your order and free shipping, without having to pay the $20 fee. If I were you, I would take advantage (and quickly) of this. LIY tested and obsessed approved. She is also giving you all the chance to win a free body microdermabrasion.  

I would highly recommend paying Lindsay a visit and saying hello, because if you don't....

well, she may just shoot your eyeball out. 



  1. Did you do something different with your hair Erin? I LOVE IT!

    Also, if you didn't know -- McDonalds is giving out FREE coffee during breakfast hours! Just thought I'd let you know since you mentioned Dunkin Donuts.

  2. Good job. I'm giving up soda right now to improve my health and am on day two. I'm craving it so bad, once I'm through this transition period I'm going to add exercise.

  3. You are motivating me to get my butt in gear and get in shape! Little changes make a big difference!

  4. I did Jillian Michaels today and had the same thought..I can do this! Oh wait, that's because it's only day two.

  5. I am in the same boat trying to start a regular exercise routine! I also skipped Dunkin's this morning and opted for a whole wheat english muffin instead. I'm so glad I came across your post - exactly the motivation I need!

  6. Reading this as the Hubbs is making our spinach drink. Lol!

  7. I'm a month in on my new workout plan and it's become a habit. Keep it up! Also, I just cackled out loud at the kale and spinach thing. It's so true! It's not living!

  8. There's being crazy and finding a balance. I find that I am happiest when I eat 90% clean and sprinkle in some "cheats" now and again. A bag of peanut m&m's on a bad day, pizza and beer on a friday night.... etc. Everyone is different but life is about balance.

    xo, NIna


  9. I feel the same about the #1800 so far! It's gonna be sooo worth it in the end!

  10. i love lindsay and her blog!!!

  11. I love your top! Where did you get it?


I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
