I don't know about you but planning an outing is tough for me.. You see, i'm very tied to Rylie's schedule/routine that it's difficult for me to be flexible when I know she's not going to have a good afternoon nap.  However on this day, I decided to face my fear of tantrums and fussiness and just go with the flow! You should have seen how carefree I was, I was like a whole new person! 

My family and I visited the Aquarium of The Pacific for a family date.  I'll admit that I'm in LOVE with marine life... That's probably the only nerdy side to me... There's something so serene and majestic about the under water world.. It puts things into perspective knowing how tiny I am in this gigantic world... Eric and I are slowly exposing Rylie to the world around her and we thought that today would be a good day to explore the aquatic life... My all time favorite aquarium is the beautiful National Aquarium in Baltimore ...but it is my dream to one day visit the Georgia Aquarium, which is suppose to be the largest aquarium in the world!  
*hubby, please!!!*

Any outing with an active toddler calls for easy layers and comfort! I will admit that it's been a very long time since I last wore heels! Lately i've been wearing a lot of jeans, stretchy jeans! This is pretty much an 'everyday' look for me nowadays.. Jeans, some kind of striped top, light jacket and tennis shoes.  Very mommy friendly!

OOTD: Valentine's Day

Valentine's day is just around the corner... 
Need a good gift idea?  
I say forget the roses and chocolates and go with something that'll last a while.

My Current favorite accessory at the moment is my Daniel Wellington Watch. 
I love how simple and classic it is! The sleek black band with the rose gold hardware is definitely going to be a well-loved item.  The band is easily removable so you can switch out to a different design. I love Daniel Wellington's selection of interchangeable bands especially the striped ones!

Simply Fit - Work it Out!

When I got pregnant, one of the first things that came to mind was how big I was going to get.  Almost everyone I spoke to advised that I would lose my weight immediately after birth but that wasn't the case for me... I even had people tell me, "it takes 9 months to lose all of the weight b/c you were pregnant for 9 months"... HA! It has been over a year now since the birth of my baby girl and I have yet to go back to my pre-pregancy weight.  It's not anyones fault but my own... Having an active toddler, it's hard to get in the kitchen and cook up a healthy meal let alone get to the gym... My husband and I relied on fast food for a good portion of 2014 and we are now paying the consequences. 

Now that 2015 is here I'm ready to focus on a healthy new year.. I am now, more than ever, determined to lose all of my pregnancy weight!  Anyone else on board with me?!

Of course working out must go hand and hand with clothes that make me feel good!
Here are a few of my favorite picks from Cozy Orange.  Guess what? They're having their semi-annual sale and you can use discount code: cozyclassic for additional 15% off!
Hurry code expires 2/10/15


 
 

I actually have this top above and I absolutely LOVE it! It is very flattering on! 




So friends, what's your new year fitness goals?
