I've been pretty casual these days. I'm still getting acclimated to a new area, trying to find my place, and really just re-adjust. I've been doing more outdoorsy activities than anything else, which doesn't cause for much for more than black leggings, a t-shirt, and a pair of sneakers. I've been getting a lot of questions and inquiries about my weight loss regiment. Since moving to California, I've really gotten into different activities, such as hiking, U-Jam (a form of hip hop aerobics) bike riding, and even weight lifting. I can say California lifestyle is just different. People are outside and active all the time. Me and hubby have had sort of a "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em attitude." It also helps that are such a wide array of activities to enjoy. I swear I've been doing the elliptical for 15 years at this point. It is so much more fun to have a different sort of activity everyday instead of the same old thing day after day.
Style Note: Denim is such a pain in the butt to find. These are the same Torrid Stiletto jeans that I got last year. Thus far, they've been the best fit for me, but I have to say they don't last very long. Out of the 3 pair I have only one pair has upheld. On one pair the button snapped off immediately and on the other pair the seam came undone and there's a huge hole in them. The jeans retail for about $50. At that price, I don't mind buying a pair every 6 - 8 months. I reviewed these last year around this time, but it took me wearing them repeatedly to learn of the quality. I contribute the quality to being jeans, but not really jeans at the same time. They really can't take the frequent wear that regular jeans can take. They are soft with a lot of stretch.
Makeup Note: I recently discovered Milani lipstick and picked up the color Rose Hip. I was told that it's the equivalent to MAC's Candy Yum Yum (which is always sold out and only a fraction of the price at less than $5). I am in love with it. I had no idea that lipstick that is so inexpensive could be so pigmented. I'll definitely be trying the other colors.
