P90x 90 Day Challenge

Soo lately I have been feeling slightly out of shape and I know for sure my eating habits aren't the best.  I need to start a workout regimen that pushes me and makes me do the best workout I can. So.... I have decided to take the P90x 90 day challenge.  My boyfriend owns the dvd's and told me he will lend them to me, so I don't have to fork out all the money for them lol. My sister also recently bought the Brazilian Butt Lift Dvd's, which I will also be doing in conjunction with the P90x and yoga classes. My thighs and butt are my main concern, as I have a pretty flat stomach already, but it defiantly could do with some toning. My arms also could get a little stronger...

I plan to start P90x on May 1st, but will be working out everyday until then as well. I will keep you posted on my results and how I manage with the workouts. I am leaving for South Carolina on August 1st and am hoping to be in the best shape of my life, since I will be spending a lot of time on the beach! I will also be going to Vegas in August and know I will be spending a lot of time around pools! (if you haven't been to vegas before, it gets extremely hot there in August... around 50 degrees celsius and pool time is necessary!)

If anyone has had any good or bad experiences with P90x let me know! I'd love to hear your story!

Discovering Colored Denim

    As Summer is getting closer, colorful denim is becoming more and more popular. I have seen almost every brand of jeans coming out with their own line of colored denim. My Personal Favorites are Rag and Bone and Current/Elliott's Printed colored denim. Take a look at all the great examples I have listed below and get some outfit inspiration!

Hey, Remember Me? Interior decorating and Shopping!

     Ok so I haven't posted in quite some time and I'm starting to think I should give my self certain days to post on. This way things will become more regular and you will know when a new post will be coming.

**A quick update on my life:**

     So I have recently went to the kitchen showroom and picked out my kitchen cabinetry, hardware, fridge and extras. I have chosen to go with a basic white shaker style cabinetry, modern silver hardware and a bottom freezer fridge. We have also upgraded to get hidden valiance lighting so that our counters can be lit up at night.  Our Countertops are going to be absolute black granite and I want to put in a white carrera marble back splash to tie it all together.  This Wednesday we are going to meet with the interior designer to pick our floors, bathroom vanity and everything else that has to be chosen.  The building is really starting to come together and is starting to actually look like something. YAY!

Here are some examples of what I want for my kitchen:

     Now off the decorating topic and onto shopping! :)  I went shopping yesterday with my mom and bought a very pretty lace dress I can wear to the wedding I'm going to next month.  I needed something that was a bit more conservative, but still body hugging since that style looks best on me. I ended up buying a dress at the Intermix store we have here in Toronto and couldn't be happier. I looked around Holt Renfrew for about an hour, but couldn't find a thing I liked, which for me is very unusual. I saw a very beautiful DVF sequin gown, but it was white.. so that was a no go.  Now all I need to buy is a pair of shoes. I have been eyeing a pair of Christian Louboutin pigalle pumps so maybe ill get those to pair with it.

Here is my outfit idea:

You're Beautiful

What do you think about the shoes with the dress?? Let me know what you think?
