NEW SERIES! FALL FITNESS PLAN 2016



Good morning everyone! I wanted to share my new fall fitness plan with you now that we have about a month left of summer. And thank you so much for following my Summer Fitness Plan Series! I appreciate all the SnapChat (beautifullyseas) messages you sent me! I'm happy to be back to working out almost everyday, however I realized yesterday that walking the same day as BBG may be too much for me to do since I'm exhausted when I get home from school. With that being said, BBG is the best workout routine I've ever tried! It really does change the shape of your body when you workout consistently and use Kayla Itsines guideline. Sometimes, it's hard for me to keep up with the schedule, however I make sure to do every workout for the week.

The one thing I need to work on are my eating habits. Before my summer beach trip, I knew I had to wear a bikini, so I ate great for four weeks prior to the trip. Eating healthy and completing the BBG workouts, plus the walking made a HUGE difference! I wasn't bloated and my stomach was flatter and more toned. Once I came home I started eating chips and salsa again and there went my flatter stomach. So you see, it's all about what we eat and how much we exercise.

The BBG workouts tones and strengthens muscles in just the right places. It's incredible how Kayla created an amazing program that really works. So this weekend, I'm going to make better choices in what I eat and that means staying away from bread, cookies, icecream, and candy. And no chips and salsa.

Who's with me?


One of the benefits of doing all the BBG lunges and squats are toned and more defined legs. I noticed that my thighs are smaller and I'd love to see the cellulite disappear. 

And by the way, the track shorts I'm wearing were one of my #NSALE purchases and I'm thrilled I bought them! They're so comfortable, easy to wear, and available in three colors. I'm wearing a small. 

Here's my Fall Fitness Plan as outlined by Kayla Beach Bikini Guide (#BBG)
  • MONDAY - Legs and Cardio (Four 7 minute sessions = 28 minutes)
  • TUESDAY - Walk for at least 35 minutes (I usually walk for an hour)
  • WEDNESDAY - Arms and Abs (Four 7 minute sessions + 28 minutes)
  • THURSDAY - Walk for at least 35 minutes (I usually walk for an hour)
  • FRIDAY - Full Body Workout (Four 7 minute sessions = 28 minutes)
  • SATURDAY -  Walk for at least 35 minutes (I usually walk for an hour)
  • SUNDAY - Rest and enjoy the day off!
You can download the app for Kayla Itsines Beach Bikini Guide PDF for $52 US Dollars. I saved it to my iPhone in iBooks and on my MacBook.


Outfit Details: BP Tee // White Tank Top // Wacoal Sports Bra (I have this and love it) // Zella Track Shorts // Nike Sneakers (similar pair I own)


Wearing my new workout clothes motivates me to exercise, so I wanted to share some new styles that I really love for fall. The Adidas sneakers (& here) are what Kayla wears often and they look so cute on. I just ordered a pair! It says they run small, so I ordered a size 9, because I want them a little bigger. My shoe size is an 8. 


Hope you have the best day! God bless you! XO, Desiree

EASY FALL OUTFIT



I'm really looking forward to fall and wearing cozy layers. Which means this outfit will be my go-to casual fall look. I was able to score this open front cardigan during the #NSALE before it sold out and now I'm happy to see this fall staple back in stock in seven different colors. I loved this cardigan so much I bought it in three colors; dark olive, tan fog, and gray medium heather. Nordstrom also introduce a similar style cardigan in pretty colors that you'll have to check out. 



And I might have been the last blogger on the planet to buy these wedge espadrilles sandals and as soon as my package arrived, I quickly realized why they've been so popular! They're super comfortable and light weight which I did not expect. 


Outfit Details: B.P. Open Front Cardigan (I'm wearing an XS // J Brand Jeans // Marc Fisher Espadrille Wedges & here & here // Scoop Neck Tee Shirt // Essie Fiji Nail Polish // Celine Sunglasses (similar style) // Michele Watch

MINI SUMMER VACATION IN DISNEY WORLD WITH MOM


Good morning! I'm finally back! I've been busy with back-to-school preparation and I'm so happy to be blogging again. Yesterday I met my new students and wow! They are soooooo cute, smart, and funny. You can definitely tell who their parents are voting for in the election! LOL! Yes, these witty little third graders know their politics and had a ton to say on the first day of school! So funny! 

Anyway, let's talk about some fashion and this fun little trip my mother and I had this summer. First of all, we had a blast together and decided that we definitely need to travel together more often. My mom is a member of the Disney Club, where she gets these points to stay at any Disney resort and she chose Saratoga Springs. This was my first time staying at that resort and I loved it! The rooms were spacious and comfortable. 

Outfit details: J.Crew Cami (I'm wearing an XS) // J.Crew White Denim Shorts // J.Crew Rio Sandals // J.Crew Mini Leather Bucket Bag // Celine Sunglasses (similar) // Strapless Bra (best ever) // Essie Fiji Nailpolish


The first night we were there we took the resort transportation to Disney Springs, previously called Downtown Disney. This place has changed so much since my last visit! It's a huge shopping mall with so many fun stores including Zara! There were tons of restaurants to choose from, however someone on the bus said, Homecoming was a new restaurant we had to try. YUMMY! 



The food was good ole southern cooking with a modern flare!


And this cake was AMAZING!


The next morning we headed off to Epcot and had the time of our lives visiting all the little shops in each country. We also ate our way through all the countries- tea in London, salted dark caramel chocolate in Germany, and lobster bisque soup in France. 

Outfit details: J.Crew Cami (I'm wearing an XS) // J.Crew White Denim Shorts // J.Crew Rio Sandals // J.Crew Mini Leather Bucket Bag // Celine Sunglasses (similar) // Strapless Bra (best ever) // Essie Fiji Nailpolish


Here we are in the French restaurant that reminds me of the restaurant in Something's Gotta Give. 

Outfit details: J.Crew Cami (I'm wearing an XS) // J.Crew White Denim Shorts // J.Crew Rio Sandals // J.Crew Mini Leather Bucket Bag // Celine Sunglasses (similar) // Strapless Bra (best ever) // Essie Fiji Nailpolish



I bought these pretty tea cups (bottom right) in the London shop!


I shared my whole trip on SnapChat (beautifullyseas). Oh and this J.Crew Cami was perfect to wear on a hot day in Orlando.

Then after we filled our tummies, we came up with this great idea to wait in line at the new Frozen ride for ninety minutes. You may be asking why didn't we get fast passes and that would be a great question. However, the fast passes sold out two months before! Yes, two months. That's crazy! But, you know what's crazier? This ride is sold out until October! Yes, October. That means if you really want to ride it, you will need to wait in line just like my mom and I did. LOL!


The next morning in Disney we headed to the Old Key West Resort in Disney to have breakfast at Olivia's before we hit the road to head back home.



Everything was delicious and the service was friendly.



Thank you for visiting me today! Hope you have the best day! XO, Desiree

INSTAGRAM LATELY FEATURING NEW FALL STYLES


Good morning! I hope your week is going well so far! I've been a busy bee getting my classroom together for the new year and I'm excited that it's almost complete. I just need to buy a new wall calendar and a couple of science posters and I think I'll be good to go for the first week of school. 

Today, I thought it would be a great idea to share my recent outfits I shared on Instagram. Many of them were #NSALE finds that are all back in stock! Yay! I was able to purchase all the looks I love from the #NSALE, even though some were full price. I learned my lesson. Next year, I'm shopping everything the first day. 

Enjoy the rest of your week! XO, Desiree
