Wardrobe Wednesday | Golden Soldier

It's been a busy week and productivity has graced me with its presence. With the versatality of my schedule this week I figured I needed to armor myself with outfits that would be comfortable enough to carry on my tasks with a ninja-like grace yet still look like I mean business. I would have worn a different boot with this outfit but
....it's Soooooo icy...

Is it SUMMER yet?!?

Heck, I'll take spring and all of the season's renewed energy. I'm ready!!

I pulled this blazer out of my closet and had to blow the dust off. Don't get me wrong, I am in LOVE with this blazer but I always seem to forget about it. My favorite parts of the blazer are the military-esque details. The blouse was a steal from Target's clearance section and it pairs so nicely with, well, almost anything. 



Hat | Rue 21


Blouse | Target
Blazer | Sears (YES, I got it at Sears!)
Scarf | H&M 



            




Well this Lady has to march on to the next battle. 

Stay Lovely,

Manic Monday| This Week's Grammy Inspired Playlist

So there was this award show on Sunday, you may have heard of it, they like to call it the Grammy's. Today was definitely a Manic Monday and I have a feeling that I received a glimpse of what this week has in store for me. So, in order to keep my sanity I have put together a playlist to help with that task. And why not center the sounds that will keep me groovin' this week around some of the artists that were blessed to be nominated, or better yet winners, of music's most prestigious award. Some of these songs were winners, most are faves of the particular artist that was nominated or won, and some are songs from an artist that performed. I hope you survived another Manic Monday because I am blessed to say that I did! *:-)

Few of my Favorite Things Friday | Noom

So I did a "few of my favorite things" post about some android apps that I absolutely CANNOT live without a few weeks ago and talked about my fave fitness app. 


Well, this week I have discovered a new fitness app that goes beyond the My Fitness Pal App!!  

Drum roll please...

...Introducing...


.::Reasons this is my new favorite fitness app::.

|Daily Tasks| Noom gives you a couple of daily tasks that encourage you to make positive lifestyle changes. These tasks may be to eat an extra serving of veggies or to read an article. I just started using this app, so I haven't gotten into any real challenges yet but I am looking forward to them!

|Food Log| Noom separates different food items into different colors along with an easy to follow visual to make it easier to make sure you are satisfying your nutritional needs! 

|Point System| Alright so this reason sounds slightly intimidating but it has been motivating for me and I think that it would do the same for anybody trying to maintain a health lifestyle. Basically once you reach a certain amount of points, you succeed to another level. The points are easy to accrue and are given out for just logging a meal or achieving a daily task.

|Pedometer| Yup! I said that right!! This app turns your phone into a pedometer...say whaaat?!?
  THIS APP TURNS YOUR PHONE INTO A PEDOMETER

I strongly encourage you to check this app out if you have been looking for an easy and motivating app to help with your fitness needs! 

Here are some other motivations that have been keeping my body moving...

(keep in mind I strongly dislike running)
(but I want to learn to love it)




Check out the app or join me for a run *;-) 

As Always Stay Lovely,

Manic Monday | Vaudeville


vaude·ville  
/ˈvôd(ə)ˌvil/
Noun
  1. A type of entertainment popular chiefly in the US in the early 20th century, featuring a mixture of specialty acts such as burlesque...
  2. A stage play on a trivial theme with interspersed songs.
Synonyms
variety
You might be asking why I am bringing this up of all things on a Monday. Well, I saw a post in Facebook that was talking about MN Renfest auditions and had mentioned vaudeville acts. This got the wheels turning and I decided that I was going to create a LadyLove infused vaudeville act for these auditions. After some research I realized that this is not how the auditions go down :-( But this thought has catalyzed a new marketing idea for LadyLove Photography and I can't wait to share it when it is complete!! So stay tuned and check out some of my inspirations from the thought of vaudeville and the world of burlesque....
