I’m already on my way back to Boston from Los Angeles. I have been out here for an entire week and it flew by as usual! I’m shooting a series of videos for an upcoming project.
As a blogger, I get sent different clothing items to try out. For my shoot though, I wanted to wear items that I bought, were my style and felt confident wearing. I learned that Lululemon still has pants that are see-through and Lorna Jane is damn expensive and has a terrible return policy in my search for the perfect outfits.
Even with tags still on and within 21 days, you cannot return something purchased from Lorna Jane for your money back – just store credit. I did not realize this when I bought a bunch of clothing last month. As for lulu, I tried on 4 different pairs of pants and only ONE did not appear to have a sheer booty. I thought they fixed this, right?
I did fall in love with the one pair that was not see-through. The thick waist band was really flattering and the fit was comfortable. Below I am wearing a Lorna Jane top that I bought with my store credit and new favorite lulu Capri’s – with my best Kim K #selfie expression. The capris have a black waist band and preppy geometrical print. Of course I can’t find them online now!
A product that I tried for the first time and loved was Loving Tan, a self tanner. You look leaner and your muscles really pop with a good tan, so I used one layer of Loving Tan’s mousse all over my body. This product was sent to me to try out, but I was shocked at how fantastic it came out! Easy to put on, no streaks, totally realistic color without any orange. The crew had no idea it wasn’t real.
During the three day shoot, we grabbed lunch from near by Urth Cafe and Kreation Organic Juice Kafe. Typing the names, I have to laugh at the spelling. I love LA but they do seem to enjoy having “different” names from babies to restaurants, I guess.
At Kreation, I tried the Gazpacho soup and Amaze-bowl. Both were delicious but the Gazpacho was outstanding. The bowl was a basic green smoothie with fruit and gluten free granola. Of course it tasted great, but nothing I can’t recreate on my own.
After the third day of shooting wrapped, I decided to grab a juice and box of macaroons from ‘lette in Beverly Hills. This is my life: Fitness, juice aka “weird” healthy food and treats.
The salted caramel, coconut and almond were my favorite flavors! I die for macaroons so these were the perfect celebration treat to finish 3 days of hard work.
You might think I’m crazy, but I’m excited to return home to the Snowpocolypse that Boston has apparently become. I’m excited for a snowy weekend watching House of Cards on Netflix, of course after my long training run which will probably be terrible.
For Valentine’s Day, Roomie and I are attempting to go to one of my favorite new restaurants in Cambridge but we will see if the snowy weather permits! What are your weekend plans?
