White Wedges...Bikram Yoga. A few of the most exciting things about my past week. I got lucky walking into Ross one day after work. Walking through the messy shoe aisle, you know....one shoe lying in the aisle walk way, "oh that's cute where's the other one?" no where in sight...a size 7 in the 5 1/2 section..that's what I mean by "messy". So again walking through the messy shoe aisle I spot a pair of bright white wedges. They appeared small but when I saw size 7 1/2 I immediately became sad...I wear a size 6 1/2!! Bummer. Whatever I try them on anyways. The shoe's fit! omg i'm so lucky..spotted these, found these, they fit, they are mine! And no i'm not really a Ross fan let me tell you. But that just happened to be my lucky day! Oh yes, and they were only 18$. :D
Bikram Yoga me? Never had I considered Bikram Yoga. One month ago my Co-Workers signed up for this class. They told me, "The room is 105 degrees and you sweat off all your toxins!" Nasty I thought. I took a yoga class 3 years ago and did not find it helpful at all. I was BORED. Not a big fan of yoga. Agian my Co-Workers "Renee you should try it! It's a good workout"....Okay maybe i'll consider...Until one Monday after a long day of my awesome banking job, I thought, what the heck you might like it. I went to an 8 o'clock class (pm) thinking i'd be home by 9. I said bye to Jay saying i'd be home in an hour (little did I know the class was 90 minutes long). Arrived at this "BIKRAM YOGA" place not too far from my house, signed some paper, and walked in this really soggy warm room. "what the hell?" okay this is really ridiculous if they think i'm doing yoga in that room. Can't breath and it's waaaaaay toooo hot in there. Walked out and text'd my co-worker. "I'm here and walked out of the room because it is too hot" ..her text back "it's okay. You'll get used to it." ooook I guess. Within 10 minutes of the class I was drenched in sweat. I look around and notice i'm not the only one. I start concentrating on the positions and try to focus on my balance. Hey i'm liking this. It's not easy I think. I force myself to stretch harder. I'm starting to think oh my this really hurts but I like it. They say breath in and out through your nose why I wonder? So you don't breath in everyone else's toxins? lol I keep myself disciplined and focus on my body. Then I think okay i'm gonna walk out the heat is too much. But force myself to think it's okay, if these other people can do it, so can I. I glance over at my co-worker and whisper "are we almost done?" she nods her head yes. I'm guessing 30 more minutes go by and I feel like a pro with my positions...then "Namaste" class is over. I'm liking how I feel. So I paid for a full month of unlimited Bikram Yoga. I get in my car and it's past 10:45 PM! omg. Jason called my phone like twice and so did my mom. WOW...did not realize I was in there so long!
Okay, so after my great description of my first Bikram Yoga experience, you're probably wondering what does this have to do with fashion.....It has NOTHING to do with my fashion..I just wanted to share my excitement. I've taken 5 classes and feel a difference in my body and stress level..I just had to say i'm liking Bikram Yoga!
Recently I had my eye on this pretty little bracelet. This is a J.Crew inspired mint pave bracelet. You can buy this bracelet here by Macaroon Notebook on Etsy. I'm a little in love with it. Worn it about everyday since I have received it.
My wrist is screaming happiness in this pic :) Also received my set of 3 happy wrist bracelet's from Itchelita. They are so cute and simple and can be paired with all your arm candy. Love love love! Her store has a big variety of happy wrist options and she ships quick! I highly recommend!
As you can see, it is clear I have been sporting the heck out of my white wedges and pave mint bracelet :) I can't help but pair the two with my daily outfits.
So there you go. White wedges, lovely arm candy, and Bikram Yoga..the highlights of my week. And remember.....
