Home Workout for Legs & Glutes

Monday, May 16, 2016

Last week I got ready for the gym, chugged preworkout, and as I was pulling out of the garage I noticed the sky looking rather ticked off. I live very close to Tornado Alley, and had a gut feeling to stay home for safety. Which left me all hyped up on pre-workout and a clean house with the need to work out.

I have recently purchased these resistance bands off Amazon for under $15, and have been dying to share some workouts that I have been experimenting with at the gym. These are a few ideas that you can do in the comfort of your own home, hotel room, or even in between sets in the gym. I like the bands because I am able to activate my muscles in a foreign approach to keep them confused but feel a burn.

This video is to provide you several ideas for workouts your can do with resistance bands. I personally like to mix up the sequence and perform about 20-40 repetitions back to back with a 30 second rest. I would do this sequence for 3 to 5 rounds. You are more than welcome to adjust this to your level of fitness or find challenges to throw into the workout. I will be posting more routines in future fitness posts!

Fitted Tee Dress

Thursday, May 12, 2016

 Dress (+ an extra 30% off!) | Sandals (also extra 30% off at checkout!) | Hobo Bag | Sunglasses

Hey friend, I know I've been MIA for a few days. I took a trip to Dallas to see the Beyonce concert. It was my first time in Dallas, and boy did I love it. The shopping is phenomenal, every woman had voluminous hair, and the margaritas were super tasty. It was my first time seeing Beyonce, and I surely hope it wasn't my last. She is such a talented and beautiful performer. My best friend and I wanted so badly to call our husbands to inform them we are now going to follow her around the country and become substitute backup dancers. The only thing I don't miss right now is the humidity and heat in Dallas. Now two years living out of Florida, I do not miss the humid weather. 

Speaking of heat, I am sharing a simple and easy dress for the warmer weather. With Memorial day approaching soon, I couldn't think of a better dress to snag up when I saw it in the store. I love this style of dress because I can wear it with Tom's or Converse but it can also be styled with sandals like these in photos or Jack Rogers. For patriotic holidays, pair it with a red bandanna, or necklace!  I suggest going up a size so it fits just right. If I went with my normal size, the dress would be less comfortable and would have it riding up. It is currently on sale, and no promo code needed!

Laser Cut Skirt & Chambray

Thursday, May 5, 2016

Top | Skirt, similar here & here | Sandals | Tote, affordable version here

I almost forgot I had this skirt until I had been flipping through a magazine and seen this style appear a few times and became motivated to search for it. Ultimately this turned into a much larger project, and I reorganized my entire closet (my poor husband dealing with me and my three day project). Atlas, reunited with this gem of a skirt, which now fits much better than when I first purchased it a few years ago. This skirt is a suede type material so it can be worn with a basic top for a casual look, or a crop/ body suit for sleek evening look.

I am hesitant to get rid of my fun pieces in my closet because, you never quite know if it will make a trend list in  the future. Laser cut has been seen all over the place with finding new fabrics and techniques. This topic was popular during E!'s cover segment of the Met Gala. Who else watched it and feels like silver is on the verge of because an it color?

Blush Rose Dress

Monday, May 2, 2016

Dress - Forever 21 currently sold out online but is available in store (crop top in the same print) | Denim Jacket - here | Handbag - Prada, affordable style here & here | Shoes | Sunglasses

The IT color for 2016, Rose is making it's appearance on Barbelles & Curls. I found this gem of a dress at Forever 21. At first sight I fell in love with the color, yellow roses, and the length. I'm a big fan on knee length dresses not only because it could be work friendly (I haven't debuted the dress in the office) but short dresses with my gym routine don't get alone. I cannot stand a tight fitting dress that constantly rides up. I also knew it was a must buy when it matched the cameo color of my handbag.
