#BootyBootCamp : A Better Me is Coming.



As most of you do not know, I have Hashimoto's Disease and over the past 18 months I have gained control of my health, balanced my lifestyle and lost 40 pounds. I look at myself in the mirror and see a happy confident woman but I also see skin and muscles that need to be toned and made firm.

We booked a vacation to Mexico and there's no better motivation to get myself in peak shape. We started using +Fitness Blender a few months ago and have fallen in love with Kelli and her style. Then, Danny tagged me in a before and after photo Fitness Blender tweeted for their #BootyBootCamp series and I pounced! All of the individual workouts are free, so I didn't blink an eye when they ask a small convenience fee of $6.99 to coordinate and schedule the series, keeping you on track.

We started on a Tuesday where the 40 minute workout took 60 with the breaks we needed to take so we didn't die. Thursday wasn't any easier; I might have said a few thing I now regret. Sorry Kelli! 
I have adopted the new attitude, the time will pass anyway, and I mind myself of this when I want to give up or worse, give in.

What have I noticed? I am super out of shape. And I am using muscles that I have never used and it hurts. And I like it. And I am ready for more. xoxo •Nancy-Lee

The Chakra Stop: A Calcite Twist

I love crystal healing. And I especially love wearing crystal art. Take this gorgeous necklace by The Chakra Stop for example. At the heart of the wire wrap is Calcite, a stone designed to bring inner peace. It's one of the most popular necklaces that I have ever owned. People gravitate toward it, they are mesmerized having to pick it up and hold it, discovering the weight and rough-cut that this Calcite features.

Chakra Embroidered Yoga Mat Bag by Gaiam

I obtained my yoga teaching certification in the Summer of 2011, so it should come as no surprise that I own 4 yoga mats, in varying thicknesses and brands. What is a bit surprising is, I have never found a mat bag that I liked or even came close to feeling the need to buy. I just shove it in whatever bag I'm taking to the field that day and 'deal' with the fact it doesn't fit.

One evening we were making a quick run to +Whole Foods Market where I rounded the corner and BAM! There it was, this gorgeous Chakra Mat Bag by +Gaiam. Presented in a rich black 100% cotton canvas, the bag features each of the chakras embroidered in vibrant thread, with an exterior zip pocket, cinch closure, and an adjustable shoulder strap to customize the drop.

LATHER at The Domain

It was nice to see +LATHER as the amenity assortment during our stay at +The Domain Hotel for my birthday celebration. The 7pc set consisted of Facial Soap, Spearmint Mouthwash, Mint Thyme Hair Wash, Yuzu Bergamot Crème Rinse, Bamboo Lemongrass Body Wash, Exfoliating Body Soap and Lavender Lime Moisturizer.


I first discovered this collection when they had a shop on Santana Row. It has since closed but I make a point to stop at the Pasadena location ever year during +PHAMExpo! Danny loves their soaps! Their collection is light weight and lovely. Everything is natural and not artificial smelling or synthetically heavy, in any way. The cleansers do not strip my skin, the moisturizer sinks into my body skin quickly and completely and the hair care collection s gentle and effective. If you are looking for a true spa-at-home experience, check out www.Lather.com. xoxo •Nancy-Lee

A Sephora 40th Birthday Party Haul

I took a look at my collection of eyeliners and was completely uninspired. I had 4 black pencils, 2 brown pencils, 1 brownish-green and 1 silver retractable, and a liquid liner in purple.The only thing worth mentioning was my +Lime Crime liner in Milk. It's so awesome, I wear it alone.

My Piperlime Picks include Kate Spade.

You've heard that saying, "Nothing haunts us like the things we didn't buy." Well, I have been experiencing this no-buy-regret since late Summer, when I first came across the +kate spade new york Skyline Glow necklace. Discovered at +Nordstrom, it's $349 price tag was well out of my budget. So I kept my fingers crossed that one day, we would run into each other again, at a much lower price.

After Christmas I made a mad search for the Skyline Glow necklace and while I came up empty handed with Nordys, I discovered it at Piperlime. Still out of my reach at $224.99. A few weeks pass and I forget not about the necklace but where I came across it for sale.



How fate intervened.
I have been waiting all Winter for +Piperlime to host their 'Take an additional 60% Off of Clearance' sale. Last year I grabbed an amazing vegan skirt for under $10 and this year, I hit the jackpot again! My $567 valued haul included (2) Piperlime Collection pieces, a sequins skirt and a gold dress, and at the last minute I crossed paths with that
 +kate spade new york necklace. Once I signed in to check out, it popped up in the 'Recently Viewed' footer.

It can't be! But it was! Hidden from main view, it was included in the 60% off sale and available for purchase at $89.99. I decided to treat to myself, as a 40th Birthday Present. In the end my cart came to $113.97. I redeemed another $5 Gap Rewards, earned when I purchased the jeans and tights at GAP a few days earlier, bringing my $567 cart to $108.97. What was in your haul? xoxo •Nancy-Lee

Widening the GAP on Winter and Summer Savings.

We were waiting for Lush to open their doors for business, +Gap took advantage of the early morning shoppers in their wing and let us in '15 minutes early'. +Franci was eyeing a red jacket in the window and I had Gap Rewards wanting to be spent, so win win!! While she skipped the jacket, I took advantage of the additional 60% off sale and scored a $19.95 pair of black ribbed tights with pin-dot thread embellishment for $6.39. They are a beautiful find to carry me through the rest of Winter. Then there was the matter of the $69 cropped jeans with a rolled hem, perfect for Spring / Summer for $12.00 after the discount! In the end, I redeemed a $5 Gap Rewards and paid a total of $13.39 out of pocket. Holla!! How did you do? xoxo •Nancy-Lee
