Ultracor Active:: 2 in 1- Activewear

First off, HAPPY NEW YEAR 2016 THIS IS SO BIZARRE!!!1!!!!!!1!!!1!1!1

Just wanted to thank you alllllll for your support this year. It means the world to me!! I hope to continue inspiring and sharing my fashion ideas with you throughout these next 12 months. I wanted to kick off the new year with a fitness post as it is probably one of the most common New Year’s Resolutions. Here we go…

This is the first post of a 2-part series I am going to be doing on Ultracor Active. It is the maker of, hands-down, my favorite leggings to date. For a little background info, Ultracor is a fitness brand sold on exclusive websites such as Barney’s, Saks, Shopbop, and Bandier. Ultracor’s leggings, in my opinion, are their most unique product, with the most interesting patterns that are attention-grabbing yet tastefully subtle and artistic. I particularly appreciate that the patterns toward the end of the leggings totally pop out at you. You will want to own every single legging available. You can wear them on the street and/or at the gym. They’re incredibly versatile, and they feel like your second skin –you don’t even feel them. They merely graze your skin but they look substantial and shape your figure beautifully. Just to give you a comparison, it feels lighter and more flexible than your typical Lulus and you feel like you are flying, and the über sophisticated designs on them? They are ONE OF A KIND… Pair with non-athletic sneakers/flats/boots for a street style type look or go full force and wear with trainers to work out and shape your body. Trust me when I say this, they’re most definitely worth the $$ AND they’re currently having a massive sale, so go wild!

Crisp White Blouse & Chunky Knit Pullover

This chunky knit pullover by Theyskens’ Theory has been such a stud this season with its vibrant mustard shade and its laissez-faire side pocket cuts. For this look, I opted for a white collar blouse underneath from Uniqlo (one just opened up in Chicago!) and a pair of casually ripped, black skinny jeans from Zara.

What’s in my Bag 2015

Greetings Loved Ones [let’s take a journey…*sorrynotsorry],

As the end of the year approaches, I thought I would do a quick “What’s in my Bag?” post to showcase my favorite products. Honestly cannot believe it is December going on January. This year was a blast, and I can’t wait to see what the new year brings!

Bag: Céline

I have been sporting around the Céline Nano Tote this year, and to say I have been obsessed with it would be an understatement. The size is beyond perfect, and it also limits me from carrying too much, which is a massive problem for me [new year’s resolution anyone?]–I am the person who will pack a 50 lb bag for a 2-day vacation because I cannot narrow down my choices so I just bring everything. Literally everything. Yes, that is me. #noshame

Planner: Erin Condren

Ohkayyyyy, this planner has kept me organized alllll year around. It is essential to my day-to-day life. I admit, I will forget to use it for two weeks straight sometimes, and then I go ham and organize like crazy for 5 days and then the cycle starts again—-BUTTTT…..when I do remember to use it and really utilize all the features it offers, I am like an insane person who has every hour planned from waking up at 9:00 AM to writing a blog post at 6:15 PM. You must must must cop one of these Life Planners from Erin Condren… like click on this link right now (you’ll receive $10 off your order!) and order one. You did it? Fantastic. One of the best parts about this planner is that you can have your name on the cover but REPLACE the cover as many times as you’d like (if you saw the variety of cover options they had, you’d understand) . Now, I could literally ramble on about these insanely useful planners from Erin Condren, however, this post would take you around 4-5 hrs to read and I would’ve felt like I’ve sucked away most of your day, so on we go. One last thing!! Those pens on top of the planner are from Muji, and the tips are so fine. You will want to handwrite a book, they’re that fun to write with.

Breath Savers: Sugarfina, Sour Patch Gum by Stride

You like eating salads with a ton of onions? Korean BBQ bathed in garlic? Well, then you know what I am talking about when I say that wherever you go afterwards, people absolutely do not want to talk to you when you smell like that. My current favorite lifesavers: ANYTHING, and I mean anything, from Sugarfina, and Sour Patch Kids REDBERRY gum (runs out of flavor fast, but smells divine).

Mascara: Givenchy, Lip Products: c/o Glossier, Sugar Fresh

Make sure you are all dolled up, especially after your session of huffing and puffing at the gym. I know you too well, don’t I? This Givenchy mascara is lengthening and voluminous. Don’t be afraid to notice the packaging either! During the winter, my lips are the most chapped little things in the world. I’ve honestly never seen anything like it before. Luckily, I have my two sidekicks. 1. Glossier coconut balm dotcom (what a clev name) to make my lips moisturized, hydrated, and plumped and 2.  Fresh’s Sugar Tinted Lip Balm for color and shine. The Glossier balm is currently out of stock, however, I do believe they have the same one but without the coconut extracts. Not as luxurious and refreshing, but still a worthy alternative no less. It is the best lip balm I have ever come across. Absolutely in love with it.
