Happy Friday! I’m here for this weekend for. real. Especially excited for Kendall to come home and for birthday celebrations/ girls’ night out. Saturday’s going to be a good night for me. Happy birthday Marisa & Juju!

 

Happy Birthday Banner

Lately on The CaroLøve

I’ve got my eye on…

While I really do like the frankincense oil moisturizer I got from Etsy, I’m not a huge fan of the packaging and Kendall thinks it smells like food. Not really what I’m going for. However, I found an Organic Facial Moisturizer that is under $10!

My eyes nearly popped out of my head when I saw this Rainbow Pendant Bib Necklace.

I don’t even know if Kendall is going to be here for Valentine’s Day but if he is I’ll need to rock this White Heart Pattern Mohair Knit Sweater.

 

Don’t forget you can always peek at my wish list over in my sidebar. Here’s what I’m currently craving:

Around the internet

I’m always looking for a bargain, and I can personally vouch for some of these 29 Beauty Products Under $10 That Are Actually Worth Your Money. (And I’ve added a few to my wish list) via Buzzfeed

I usually don’t get excited about makeup (although I do appreciate cute packaging) but Jeremy Scott and MAC Created Your Dream Beauty Mixtape. via Cools

Some details of this Wedding That Brought Ibiza to New York and Broke All the Rules were were stunning, but some I could do without, personally. What do you think? via Coveteur

An updated Ramen & Pho Guide for DC… you know for when it freaking snows again next week. via Brightest Young Things

I kind of cringe when grown women are too into Disney, but OHMYGOODNESS these Disney inspired gowns by Paolo Sebastian are absolutely stunning and so not literal. 10/10 would wear the whole collection.

Many people are guilty of giving up on their fitness goals, losing that initial motivation for a variety of reasons. What’s holding you back from turning your new lifestyle into a permanent one?

Deadlifts for donuts

Learn more about the five things that could be stopping you from achieving your fitness goals, and how to combat them for a much more permanent healthy lifestyle.

1. You’ve set the bar too high

They say you should ‘go big or go home,’ but when your goals are set too high – they can be all the more difficult to achieve. While setting some clear overall goals is important, it’s the smaller goals that will help you get there. Make a monthly plan of what you’d like to achieve each month, such as running 20 minutes without stopping or lifting a certain weight. Work towards these goals instead, and you’ll find them much easier to achieve than aiming for that one big overall goal.

2. You’re not eating the right foods

Getting fit and healthy isn’t just about going to the gym, there’s much more to it than that. To achieve your fitness goals, you need to overhaul your diet. This means eating healthier and eating foods that support your fitness plans and eating foods that give you energy to fuel your workouts. Healthy eating coupled with fitness is the most effective way to lose weight and get in shape, so make sure you set goals that incorporate both elements.

I have to say here that I try to eat basically healthy at all times but yes I let myself have the occasional doughnut, slice of pizza, etc. In my opinion, life is for living and it’s all about balance.

3. You’re not sure what you’re doing

Exercise can be tough, especially when you’re not sure what you’re doing or how it will benefit you. Choosing the right workout for you requires some careful thought and designing a plan that fits your aims. There are plenty of online articles that could help you figure out how to achieve your goals, as well as some ready-made fitness plans.

If you’re still unsure, or you’re new to exercise – then you might find professional help more beneficial. Seek advice from a personal trainer who can help you to design your ideal fitness plan or attend some classes to teach you more about technique and form. It’s ok not to know what you’re doing at first, so don’t be afraid to seek help.

4. You’re still smoking

Smoking can have a disastrous effect on your fitness, reducing your lung capacity and the rate at which blood flows around your body. It’s great that you want to get fitter, but giving up smoking is the first thing that needs to go to help you achieve that goal. Quitting isn’t easy, and while a new fitness routine could serve as a welcome distraction, you might need some help quitting. Vaping in lieu of smoking can help you improve your fitness levels, while also helping you to wean yourself off nicotine gradually. Get yourself one of the best vape pens from Dopeboo to get started and work on completely transforming your health. You’ll soon notice a difference in your cardiovascular activity as your lungs and circulation recover from the damage.

5. You lose motivation easily

When you first launch into a new fitness regime, you do so full of enthusiasm that helps carry you through those first few weeks. But soon, a missed session can become two, you start going back into old habits and before you know it – you’re back at square one. So what can you do to change the pattern?

Whatever that’s causing you to lose your motivation, learn to tackle it. Read Buzzfeed’s ‘29 Smart Ways to Motivate Yourself to Work Out’ to give you some ideas for beating those common flake excuses that could be holding you back. Scheduling your workouts according to what you have planned for the week can help you to work around your other commitments and not let life get in the way of your goals.

Whatever your fitness goals, whether you’d like to run a marathon or tone your tummy – try not to be too hard on yourself. Instead of focusing on trying to make dramatic changes, try evolving into the best version of yourself instead. This way, you can embrace new lifestyle changes at a pace that suits you, without the pressure and disappointment that tough targets can cause. It may not always be easy, but if you work hard, the results will be worth it in the end.

Happy Friday before Christmas! The shopping is done, the presents are (almost) all wrapped, and I cannot wait to celebrate with my family! Tomorrow Kendall and I have brunch with some besties and we’re seeing The Nutcracker at night with my mom and some church friends. Sunday we have midnight 9 o’clock mass, which is a favorite tradition of mine. What are you favorite Christmas traditions?

Lately on The CaroLøve

I’ve got my eye on…

I will probably be talking about the Rivington Convertible Flap Petrol Backpack until I somehow obtain it. So gorgeous, so versatile, so out of my budget.

The deep emerald of this Tasseled Tie Bishop Sleeve Embroidered Velvet Dress totally caught my attention!

I already got my 2018 planner (COMING TO THE BLOG NEXT WEEK AND I LOVE IT SO MUCH!!) but if I hadn’t found mine I think this Design Your Life® 2018 Planner is adorable!

Don’t forget you can always peek at my wish list over in my sidebar. Here’s what I’m currently craving:

 

Around the internet

Roxanne gives a little insight into what it’s like being Jewish at Christmas.

If you saw my Insta-stories last week you’ll know I was RULL excited for Wawa to come into town. I wasn’t the only one. via The Washington Post

This is a long one, but worth the read. I was in third grade when Titanic came out. I saw in theaters and begged to leave. It gave me nightmares for months and I still can’t watch the whole thing. Never has another movie fascinated and terrified me in such a way. Here’s the The Insane True Story Of How “Titanic” Got Made. via Buzzfeed

My look is striped t-shirt dress, one piece of statement jewelry, and go. I adore that Arianna Huffington is a proponent of the repeat outfit for work.  via Quartz at Work
