Ready for some random-ness? I have all kinds of fun things to share but they don’t necessarily all go together. Fashion, Fitness, Food, and Fun.
I have been suffering from some serious foot pain lately. Mostly in the morning, but on my left heel throughout the day. I’m pretty sure I have some form of planters fasciitis, but have no desire to visit a Dr to find out if that is true. What I do know is that I constantly wear crap shoes. Not shoes that aren’t cute, but more like shoes that don’t provide a lick of support to my high arches. I think years of abuse on my feet is starting to take its toll. So I’ve basically become an old woman and I have a pair of orthopedic sandals. Well, not technically, but almost.

Believe it or not, I already have these shoes in red. I knew they were comfortable and my feet never hurt after wearing them. Good-bye flat as hell sandals. We *will* meet again!
Not everything is all orthopedic though. I have been rocking these super cute earrings from a local jewelry place, JoJoLovesYou. This past weekend was the tax free weekend in MA so this shop had a sale and I picked up these two pairs of earrings.
I wish my photos could show you how sparkly these Bling earrings are, but you will just have to take my word for it. I’ll be for sure getting more colors!
I’m obsessed with Jillian Michaels. She is a bit scary, but I like her videos and her workouts. I’m still in <3 with the Tone It Up girls, but I’m trying to switch it up a bit and have decided to do the 30 Day Slim Down plan from Jillian Michaels. I can’t find where the plan originally came from but I think it came directly from Jillian a few years ago and it is a combo of several of her videos (smart lady!). I haven’t been able to hit my fave Zumba class as often as I would like so I’m giving this a try!
Anyone have the videos and want to do the challenge with me?! Besides Kork. He always likes to get in on the ab action.
I can.not.get.enough Happy Melts from Happy Baby. I found these in my Whole Foods and they just looked kind of fun. They are freeze-dried yogurt snacks that are packed with flavor. I know they are for kids, but what is good is good. Right?!
I’ve been enjoying a little handful for dessert for the past few days. They kind of remind me of astronaut ice cream. Do you know what I’m talking about?! So fun.
I know I just came off BlogHer12 mayhem, but I’m heading to another conference this weekend. This one is in my own backyard though! The Healthy Living Summit is in Boston this year and it all goes down starting tonight. If you are a long time reader you know that the HLS was my very first blogging conference and was in Chicago 2010. I made TONS of friends and had a great time, including Krista from Can’t Survive on Yarn Alone.
Last night we had the opportunity to meet up at a wine tasting in my neighborhood at the Mt. Auburn Cemetery.
The weather was fantastic last night and we had such a great time. Props to Krista for finding this event.
Although there are a few events happening tonight I will NOT be participating in them because I am heading to a concert. I will be there bright and early tomorrow am though!
Oh, and one more fun item. I filmed a video to review the items that I received in the Influenster box. WOOT! Fun with YouTube! Sorry it is so dark. I’m still learning about all things video related.
Have a great weekend! Say hi if you are at HLS and watch for me live tweeting @agirlandhermutt #HLS12.
