Finding the perfect workout shoe

The other day I decided to bite the bullet and treat myself to a nice pair of workout shoes, and a fun pair too. (wink wink)

Of course, being in the fashion industry I wanted them to still look good, but also comfort is the name of the game, especially with the workouts I do.  So my search began…

I saw a few in the magazines and on Instagram, but I decided to go search some out in person so I could try them on.  I wanted a share a few below that I loved and the ones I ended up purchasing. By the way, I think I have a new obsession with sports shoes. So many cool ones out there!

I bought these and I’m in LOVE!! You guys!!!! BUY THEM!

Also, bought these! Love them even more in person and are super fun with all of my different workout leggings.

I’d love to hear if you have any that you just love. As I mentioned above, This is clearly my new thing.

a visit to the farm

farm2new

Happy Monday! I know it’s Monday, but I’ve realized if I keep putting a negative connotation on Monday’s, they will never be good. So, here is to loving Monday’s, because for us this means our weekend with daddy is right around the corner.  Dave’s weekends are Tuesday and Wednesday!

That being said, here is a fun, little joint we love going to as a family. Fresh veggies, fruits, and farm animals.  Win, win!! The Farm Stead, is a local, organic farm, that you can pick your own berries, and other produce. The have completely revamped the farm, formally known as Classic Organic. They still work on a honor system, which is so old school, I love it! The whole experience makes you feel like the world is still such an honest, pure, blissful place.  If you are local, or somewhat local, check the farm out! I think you will love it as much as we do.

Earth Day

eleanor13 new

This past weekend we celebrated mother earth. Dave took Saturday off, which is a rarity, so we got to hang with daddy all day!  We enjoyed all of the activities that were happening in Alameda Park, for Earth Day. One of the great things about Santa Barbara, is there’s always so many different activities for families to enjoy!

There were lots of kid activities too, which was nice.  Eleanor had the chance to play the drums, which she loved.  She loves her music! We took a semester off, but she will be back to her music class in a couple of months.  It’s been such a great investment for her.

We listened to lots of live music, and snacked on lots of healthy goodness.  It’s always nice to just throw a few blankets down, relax, and listen to some good tunes.  I also had the chance to check out one of my favorites, Sun Potion.  They had a booth and were offering 20% off all of their products, so I totally scored!  If you know me, you know I love my herbs!

We tied up the weekend with a children’s concert on the UCSB campus, where Eleanor got to enjoy a little fun, with some of her tiny friends.

Hope everyone is having an epic week!

Minted

When we were contacted by Minted to do a collaboration with them, we didn’t hesitate.  Minted, is a marketplace for  independent design. You can buy personalized stationary, holiday cards, announcements, artwork, and much more.  We also love that they are such large supporters of up and coming artists from around the world.

Their newest creation is the foil-pressed stationary.  We love it! We picked the braided chevron foil pressed personalized stationary. We are big fans of snail mail over here, so we are beyond thrill to have our own personalized stationary.

Check Minted out here.  If you like the design we picked, which you can see below, here is the link.
