Nike Free 5.0 TR Fit 4 Shoes in Purple Venom!

Ok, I caved and bought another pair of Nike Free 5.0 TR Fit 4 shoes!  I got them in laser crimson/anthracite/purple venom, which I had seen back in the day when I bought the fusion pink/atomic mango ones 6 months ago.  I really liked them but didn't want to get 2 pairs so I picked the pink ones.  Ever since then, I had been thinking about the purple ones!  I thought they must be sold out by now, but then I saw that Sports Authority still had them and they were on sale for like $65!  So, I had to get them!  These are my favorite shoes and I wear my other 3 pairs all the time.  So this can't be a bad investment!  Hehe.

The pair I got has 2 pretty distinct looks for each shoe!  One is much lighter looking on the toe area, and the other one is more purple.  I don't mind having such different looks though.  The different color gradient actually makes these shoes very easy to match to different colored tops.

Yay!  Ok now I'm done buying these shoes for a while lol.  I really shouldn't be buying any more sneakers, but these Nikes make it so hard!

Starbucks Alice and Olivia Stace Face Mug!

I'm so excited that I was able to order Starbucks' Alice and Olivia Stace Face mug when it went on sale online!  It sold out within one day, I think.  I thought last year's immensely popular tutu mug designed by Alice and Olivia was very different and fun.  But it didn't really speak to me the same way that this year's does.  This is more my cup of tea, and I am so happy I have this mug that I am afraid to use it!  I also didn't realize it was going to be made with ceramic, which makes it so much nicer but more breakable.  So now there's no way I'm going to use it lol!  I should have bought two!  I even emailed Starbucks asking if they will be selling them in stores at any point, and they gave me some lame unhelpful response - something like they are already sold out in stores.  Hmm... except I'm pretty sure they were never sold in stores here.  They probably just don't want to tell me!

I love that the front of the mug is totally different from the back!  The red bow is removable too.  The mug is so cute!

The only thing I wish it had would be a solid, sturdy case.  The case it comes in is really like a sleeve.  The mug sits inside of a plastic box, inside of the sleeve.

This is what it looks like outside of the box.  It's actually quite heavy!  I would never hand it to a barista to fill my coffee for fear that they'd accidentally drop it.

This is the description on the back of the box:

Now I really think I need the matching shoes and purse!  Lol!

Alice and Olivia really should have coordinated the Starbucks mug release with their Stacey face items lol.  These items came out almost a year ago, and are sold out everywhere!  I have to keep an eye on eBay, I guess.  They are super fun!

Sunday Funday!

Every time there is a 4 day work week, it feels like the longest week ever and this week was no exception!  It was terrible.  Plus, I didn't feel so good because of the impending time of the month thing.  I have no idea why, but some months I feel super bloated the few days before, while other months are fine.  I can never predict how it's going to be either.  Sigh... I often think that if I didn't have to deal with the whole fluctuating hormones thing, I'd make a lot more progress!  At least I didn't feel like eating a bunch of junk food though.  In fact, I only felt like eating healthy food, so...  I must be getting sick lol.

Anyway, this was the last week of my month 3 Get Glutes program.  Tomorrow I get to try out new exercises!  Month 4 workouts definitely look tougher than month 3.  I'm always looking forward to kicking my own ass!

Monday 1/19 
What I did:  Strength 1, followed by 30 minutes of interval runs on the treadmill.

What I wore:  Lululemon Water Bound singlet in black, with Lorna Jane Somersault bra in sparkle black under.  The new Lululemon Reflective Inspire crops and Nike Free Bionics.

I guess I was in the ninja mood... a reflective ninja lol.

As to and from, I wore the Alo Yoga Exhale LS top in black:

Tuesday 1/20 - Rest day

Wednesday 1/21
What I did:  Strength workout #2.

Thursday 1/22
What I did:  Conditioning workout, plus 15 minutes on the gauntlet afterwards.

What I wore:  Lorna Jane Arianna tank in jewel with Lululemon Centered Energy bra in flash under.  Lululemon Empower crop in coal/passion, and Nike Free 5.0 TR Fit 4 shoes in venom/turbo green.

The new Scotch and Soda Home Alone sweater as to and from - I've been wearing this sweater everyday since I got it!

Friday 1/23 - I was actually quite sore, so I took it off as a rest day.  Too bad, because Fridays are my favorite days at the gym!  (Because it's usually empty)

Saturday 1/24 - Another rest day - got stuff to do!

Sunday 1/25
What I did:  Last strength workout, plus 30 minutes on the gauntlet afterwards.

I've been trying to sell this jacket, but I think I like it again lol - the Lululemon Define Jacket in pow pink as to and from.  I think it's because I was tired of all the pinks Lululemon kept coming out with, but it's been quite a while since they had a hot pink!

And that's my week!  Hope you all had a great weekend!

Lorna Jane Heather Tank & Frankie T-Shirt

I haven't forgotten about Lorna Jane.  In fact, I check their site pretty regularly for new stuff.  But I have been pretty meh about them for the past few months.  I actually ordered 2 pairs of tights and 1 tank last month and the tights were horribly horribly sheer, and the tank was nothing like it was pictured.  So I ended up returning them all.  I should have taken pictures of them, but I was literally so disgusted with the whole order that I took them off immediately and put them back in the mail.

But last week I ordered 2 more tops, and they turned out to be good!  One of them, the Heather Tank, is actually a tank I had wanted a while ago but they were sold out of my size.  I guess they got restocked!  When I ordered it, it was available in all sizes.  But now they are down to only S and L.  I think this tank sells fast because its price point is much lower - $39 instead of in the $60s.

So I got this tank in size S.  I have tanks in both size XS and S from Lorna Jane.  They are kind of all of the place.  I ordered S because I felt this style could be a little looser, and I wanted to be safe.  It's always better to be a little looser than a little too tight, I think.

From the web photos, I expected the color (called dragon fruit marl) to be redder.  However, in person it's much lighter and it's more orangey than I expected.  I don't dislike the color, it's just not well-represented online.  I'm going to keep it though!  I love the back!

So, I think S is the right size.  It's a bit baggy but I think that's fine.  XS might be too tight.  The material of this tank is a pretty soft jersey fabric, and it's on the thin side.  

The black straps on the back actually have red stitching design on them, which ties them in with the tank more.  

The second item I got is the Frankie Casual T-Shirt in white/yves blue.  This is actually an "Uniquely Lorna Jane" item, which is a special line they have.  I like the simple and sporty look.  It's also not badly priced, at $45.  Though that is subjective since it's just a (mostly) white tee!

I think it doesn't really look that great on the model, because of the bad styling job:

I also got this tee in size S, and think it is the right size for me.  Although the opening of the sleeves are kind of tight.  While it's a simple tee, I do like it!  The material is semi-sheer, as you can see below that my bra color shows through.  

I also like the mesh on the shoulders, and the blue contrasting sleeves:

The blue on the sleeves is actually made to look kind of worn looking.  I tried to take a close up of it below, but not sure if you can see it:

This photo from their website probably shows it better:

So, I will definitely be keeping this tee as well!  I don't think I'll workout in it, but it's such an easy item to throw on.  It literally will go with everything.  I'm sure I will make use out of it!
