Wardrobe: Rompers for Spring

How cute are rompers? Seriously, they’re playful, sexy and perfect for warm weather. (Also, a one piece has to be the most convenient thing ever.) I wasn’t sure what to think when rompers came back on the scene a couple of years ago, but I picked up a floral one from Urban Outfitters in 2009 and I’ve been sold since then.

Spring Rompers

Luckily, for ladies who like to show off their gams, rompers aren’t going anywhere. Try a pastel or neon-colored one this spring. And, of course, anything splashed in flowers will do.

Early Rise Challenge Update

April Early Rise Challenge

Have you been waking up early to seize the day? I’ve been waking up at 5:30am during my April Early Rise Challenge and it’s been awesome. (I’m not just saying that because it’s my challenge.)

Here’s some differences I’ve noticed so far:

  • I’ve gotten so much done! On the first day of the challenge I exercised, ate breakfast, wrote and got a little Good Morning America in all before I started to get ready for work.
  • I’m much more focused throughout the day, even after the lunch-time crash.
  • I can actually go to sleep at a decent hour. Because I get up earlier, I have no problem getting to sleep before 11pm (as opposed to my usual after midnight bedtime).

It’s not too late to join the challenge! Keep me updated by leaving a comment or using the hashtag #AprilEarlyRise on Twitter.

April Early Rise Challenge

Did you know early risers are more proactive, are better planners and are more optimistic? Yep, according to several studies, early risers are just better than the rest of us. I’m all about self-improvement, so I’ve started the Early Rise Challenge this month. My goals are to wake up at 5:30am every day (after 7 hours of sleep) and workout, eat breakfast and check some things off of my to do list all before I head to work.

If you’re anything like me (you love to sleep in and press snooze about 10 times before you fall out of bed), then I’d love for you to join me! Leave a comment with your challenge goals or let me know on Twitter using the hashtag #AprilEarlyRise. You’re on your way to forming a habit with many benefits–get excited!
