Casual Day Date Outfit

I adore living in the quaint little suburb of Birmingham called Homewood. I was born and raised in Homewood, went to Samford University, and we still live here (at least for a bit longer) and LOVE it. Eric and I always talk about how we’ll probably never live somewhere again as convenient as where we are now. We can easily walk to our local coffee house, a bar, Steel City Pops, Fabrik, Pure Barre, SOCA, Jinsei Sushi, Urban Cookhouse and even our local Piggly Wiggly grocery store. (And for those of you not in the south, yes, we actually have a grocery store named that!)

I don’t even know if it’s possible to put into words how cute, unique and historic downtown Homewood is. Since Eric isn’t a B’ham native, he always talks about how Homewood is unlike anything he’s seen before. “The strip” in the middle of downtown Homewood is on 18th Street and is lined with bustling boutiques, a weekly running club, and kids lusting in the window of the toy store. Downtown Homewood is surrounded by quaint little cottage style homes, many which are updated, with beautiful lawns and strewn with kid’s toys. Only a few blocks over is our newly renovated park, a rec center and a pool. Homewood really is pretty hard to beat!

One of Eric and I’s favorite casual day dates is to walk into downtown Homewood and grab a cup of coffee, or to grab a cold popsicle on a warm spring day. It’s a fun way to get out and get moving while taking in all the people out and about shopping and enjoying good foods! Exploring downtown Homewood on a sunny day is one of Eric and I’s favorite ways to get out and enjoy the afternoon! One of the things we love the most about a casual stroll date day is that you walk off the heavy feeling of any treat you grab along the way. There’s also great sights and people watching to take in as well as the opportunity to just talk at leisure. Walking is always one of my favorite ways to catch up with friends as well, due to the non-pressure to talk the whole time!

This outfit is inspired by a casual Homewood date day. Layers are good in the transition to spring, so make sure you grab a cute cardi or a light leather jacket to throw on for your date look! It was really important for me to pick some comfortable shoes since we were walking a lot, but I don’t want to throw on old tennies all the time so it was nice to have this cute little leopard flat for our walk. They are cushioned and great for all day wear! Our walk was only a mile or so, nothing too intense.

To make up this outfit, I paired a clearance top I got from Express -love the lace detail!- with simple ripped jeans and funky Kate Morris Jewelry. The long and short earring are really simple and elegant but the height difference really gives them a pop. And that arrowhead necklace? Simple but never understated! I have become a KMJ addict…adding to my jewelry collection pretty much monthly. The great thing about KMJ? She’s a local Homewood designer…pretty cool! I finished this outfit off with a pretty mint (my favorite color!) crossbody bag from FOSSIL at the Outlet Shops of Grand River. You may recognize that purse from my Look Grand for Less feature a few posts back.

A Tucson Wedding

We journeyed out west to Tucson, Arizona last week for one of Eric’s best friend’s weddings. It was our first time to Arizona and we soaked it up for all it was worth in the short time we had between wedding activities! We got in town on Wednesday night and knew we’d stepped into the desert when the groom, Kent, picked us up from the airport in his Jeep with the top town on a February night! Kent and his bride Kelly were kind enough to let us stay in their home with them for one night and we loved spending that time with them! Eric and I had never experienced the desert before so we got up for a hike with Kelly the next morning at 7 am to walk a trail at Catalina State Park.

On Thursday, Eric and I enjoyed our Valentine’s Day experiences from each other. He went to play golf with the groom and some other guys while I went to Gadabout Salon for a signature facial and a makeup touchup. It was a great gift and I thoroughly enjoyed it! After that, I soaked up some rays; yes!!! I laid out by the pool in February in my bathing suit-before heading out for a date night with the hubs to Cafe Poca Cosa.

This restaurant had a fabulous date night atmosphere and was the best salsa I’ve ever had! I even “splurged” on a faux margarita at the bar while we waited to be sat. The restaurant changes their menu twice a day and is super fresh and well worth the trip. Eric and I each did the chef’s choice platter so you get 3 different menu items each and we could sample a bit of everything!

Tucson Arizona Jeep Tour

One of the most fun things we did while there was a Jeep Tour. We got picked up at our hotel and were mixed up in random groups in each jeep to get to know some of the other bridal party attendees a little better. Each jeep had to come up with a team name and answer a questionnaire  as “Pistol Pete,” our tour guide, filled us in on all the Tucson history, cacti types, and all kinds of interesting local information!

When we finished the tour, we tried out Sonoran Dogs which are a must! These were no ordinary hot dogs! They were on fluffy and delicious homemade buns and are wrapped in bacon, topped in all the fixin’s and I unashamedly ate 2 and a half. The desert tour made me work up an appetite!

Tucson Arizona

For the rehearsal dinner, we went to Hacienda Del Sol  which was one of the first resorts in Arizona. The walls on the way to the bathroom are lined with lots of famous old baseball players and actresses who have stayed here back in the 1950’s. You’ve got to check out the website to see how beautiful the grounds are! It was a lovely evening with signature margaritas that I wish I could have indulged in! ;)

The wedding was absolutely stunning at Saguaro Buttes! This wedding site is named after the famous Saguaro cactus which are surrounding the property. It’s a beautiful piece of land that looks out for miles over the desert in a little grassy area with a pretty pond and magical lights on the trees at night. This area is located adjacent to the world acclaimed Saguaro National Park. Up against the gorgeous Rincon Mountains, with thousands of towering Saguaro Cacti and panoramic views of the Catalina, Santa Rita, and Tucson Mountains, you literally have 360 degree unobstructed view of everything. It made for a stunning setting and awesome picture taking opportunities.

The wedding ceremony was really special and I really enjoyed their pastor’s sermon. After the wedding, there was a cocktail hour with specialty margaritas and a mariachi band! The bride looked amazing in a short dress which was perfect for the desert setting so it wouldn’t get dusty. Kelly and Kent are a truly special couple and Eric and I are so thankful we got to be a part of their day. Everyone danced the night away for hours including yours truly. Now, we just can’t wait to go back to experience even more of Tucson, Arizona!

My Baby Well Loved

Baby Announcement Ideas

Baby Announcement IdeasYou read that right…big news here in our household…We are having a baby! Eric and I are thrilled about growing our family and are excited to announce we’ll be a family of three August 31 (or at least that’s our due date). As of Friday, we found out we are having a little boy, so I’ll be joining the ranks of boy moms with many of my friends. We are ecstatic to finally make our baby announcement!

Baby Announcement IdeaHere’s all the details:

How am I feeling? Great! I haven’t gotten sick at all which has been such a blessing. I have been very tired though and am excited to feel that wearing off some as I head into the second trimester.

How far along am I? 12 weeks. We’ve known since 5 weeks and it’s been so hard to keep it in! Our family and a few friends know and now we’re thrilled to share it with the world.

Baby Announcement IdeaHow do we already know it’s a boy? Usually you don’t find out the gender until around 18 weeks from my understanding (but trust me, I’ve got a LOT to learn!) but we did the Progenity test which has just been implemented within the past year to check for chromosomal abnormalities that could affect the baby’s health.

Cravings: Jim ‘N Nicks cheese biscuits, Pretzel M&M’s, Ashley Mac’s strawberry cake. So, clearly clean eating isn’t quite up to the usual 90/10 rule, ha!

Workout Schedule: My OBGYN has requested that I no longer do two workouts in a day and that I try to take 2 days of rest each week. AKA no more tennis and Pure Barre in the same day. ;)

Baby Announcement Ideas

 

Baby Announcement IdeasEric and I value your prayers for the baby’s health and for our preparation to become parents. We have so much to learn! Thank you all so much for your kind words and excitement.

Thanks to my friend Magen Davis Photography for our fun photos!

Be Active

February 17, 2015 in Uncategorized by Heather

Tucson ArizonaIf you follow me on Instagram, you know I’ve been in Arizona for several days. I’m slowly adjusting back to reality, but trust me, it was hard to come back! (A full recap on that is coming to the blog later this week, so stay tuned!) One of the things I did while I was there was a kick-butt abs workout with my new friend Trish and a stair master workout before tearing it up on the wedding reception dance floor for hours on end later that night. To say that I’m sore would be an understatement!

And it got me thinking…I haven’t been sore in a while. I’ve been in my routine and not really pushing myself lately with my workouts. And, friends, I’m motivated! My calves, my abs, and even my neck muscles are feeling PRETTY uncomfortable right now and I LOVE it! If you ask my husband, he’s probably sick of hearing me complain about it, but it’s such an accomplished feeling! I’ve decided I want to up the ante on being active this year in wise and pointed ways.

#BeActiv Viactiv Chews

 

#BeActivFor Viactiv (www.viactiv.com), to #BeActiv means getting involved, getting moving and getting healthier, including making sure you’re getting the recommended amount of daily calcium for bone health based on your age (70% of adult women are calcium deficient; that number jumps to around 85% for teen girls!). While calcium from food sources is important, Viactiv comes in delicious tasting soft chews (in milk chocolate, caramel and sugar-free milk chocolate varieties – it’s the #1 doctor-recommended calcium supplement chew), as well as new gummies (tropical fruit) to make it easy and appealing to make sure you (and your daughter, sister, mother) are getting enough daily calcium. One Viactiv Calcium Soft Chew taken twice daily provides 100% of the daily value of calcium for most women plus vitamins D & K. They are intended to help achieve recommended daily dietary levels of these nutrients as a supplement to diet/food sources. Viactiv is part of the three keys to healthy bones:

  • Obtaining an adequate daily dose of calcium from your diet
  • Regular bone strengthening exercises
  • Supplementing when diet is not enough

#BeActive Pure BarreSo, with Viactiv challenging me and my readers on how we will be active, I’ve decided to start incorporating something different into my routine. Right now, of course I love doing Pure Barre 3-4 times a week but due to the busy nature of my schedule lately I haven’t gotten in my usual 1-2 cardio sessions during the week. My new game plan? Since it’s too dark and/or too cold when I get home from work and teaching class to workout outside, I am going to get back in the habit of doing Youtube workout videos again. My goal is to try to do 1-2 a week on the days when I don’t have time to fit in a Pure Barre class.

As I’ve discussed before, vitamins are super important to take and calcium is no exception. I’ve recently started taking Viactiv and love the dessert taste of something healthy I’m doing for my body. Enter the #BeActiv with Viactiv sweepstakes at http://bit.ly/1E4Lytt through 2/26/2015 to win retailer gift cards, wearable fitness technology and Viactiv products. Plus follow them on Facebook for other goodies!

Tell me how YOU plan to #BeActiv this year below in the comments!

Keep it Simple with Olives

February 16, 2015 in Clean Eating, Recipes by Heather

Olives from Spain

 

Dirty Martini-My Life Well Loved

 

Dirty Martini-My Life Well LovedI have always loved olives! When I was a little girl, I would eat half of a package of black olives all by myself. I popped them like they were candy. As my tastes have matured, I’ve become a fan of the tangy green olive as well so I thought I’d share two of my favorite ways to enjoy this heart healthy treat.

Olives from Spain are a naturally sugar-free food and contain monounsaturated fats, which can improve cholesterol levels in the blood and reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke. One serving of Olives from Spain (7 large olives) provides 35 calories and 2.5 grams of monounsaturated, healthy fat. And in honor of heart health month, now’s the time to indulge, friends!

In my opinion, the best way to serve olives is to keep it simple! Their unique flavor can stand alone to run the show and please your guests’ palates. First up on our savory olive tour, is my favorite drink…a dirty martini! My husband makes them to perfection and in fact has a reputation amongst our friends for his infamous dirty martini “on skates.” The way he prepares our martinis allows for little flecks of ice shavings on the surface which we later learned is coined “on skates” by bar tenders. I’m not going to lie to you, many times when I order a dirty martini at a restaurant now I am disappointed because the hubs has made it such an art form! Cheers to Eric for his mastery of my favorite drink.

Dirty Martini-My Life Well LovedSometimes the easiest drink recipes are the best. Made with quality ingredients, even the simplest drink can be made into something special. The real key to a great martini is in the shake (according to my expert).  It is important to use large ice cubes so they will break up and create the infamous ice shavings on top, otherwise known as being “on skates.” Shake for longer than you would think, if necessary.

Dirty Martini
Serves: 1
 
Ingredients
  • 3 oz vodka
  • Dash of dry vermouth
  • 1.5 oz olive juice
  • 8-10 large Ice Cubes
Instructions
  1. Place ice in martini shaker.
  2. Measure out vodka, vermouth and olive juice and pour into shaker.
  3. Shake vigorously for 45 seconds to 1 minute.
  4. Strain martini into glass.
  5. Garnish with olives from Spain and toothpick.

Olive and Cheese Tray

 

Olive and Cheese Tray

 

Olive and Cheese TrayThe second recipe keeps with the theme of simplicity is best. Spain is special to Eric and I since we were fortunate enough to travel there together and get engaged in Madrid! One thing we learned there is that simple, quality products can make for a better than expected snack or meal. These black olives from Spain make a great compliment to any sharp cheese, such as Manchego or Iberico. This can be an appetizer before dinner with friends or you can enjoy a special snack with a glass of wine with a loved one on your back patio. We also paired our black olives, and cheese plate with jamon iberico which goes well together.

Simply fill your platter with your favorite crackers, black olives, a sharp cheese, and jamon which is basically a cured ham. Enjoy it and let me know what you think! What’s your favorite snack or drink that you or your spouse are famous for?

This month, Olives from Spain will head to Miami for the country’s premiere food festival. If you are lucky enough to attend the renowned South Beach Wine and Food Festival, be sure to stop by the Olives from Spain station to sample some tasty bites. The event is expecting approximately 18,000 attendees.

Beauty Bits: The Perfect Red

February 6, 2015 in Fashion by Heather

The Perfect Red

The ever-elusive perfect red. It’s a thing, friends, but I’m here to help you figure it out! I never really wore a red lip until the past year or so. I didn’t know how to go about finding the right color and was too afraid of making a grave mistake. I had heard from several friends that they loved their Mary Kay red lip gloss and it seemed to be universally flattering on many of them so I gave it a whirl myself.

The first time I wore this red, I did it at home to get used to it. I’d catch myself when I walked by a mirror having to get used to it at first, but then it grew on me, because it certainly is striking! i don’t wear it everyday, but it’s a fun option when I want to go a little bolder. I’d say I usually wear it around 1-2 times a week.

I love this gloss as well because it’s not too sticky. It goes on smooth and lasts a good long while. So, if you’re looking for a fabulous red, check out this Mary Kay nourishine plus lip gloss in Rock ‘n’ Red. When I’m feeling extra bold and want an extremely long wear, I’ll layer it over my Mary Kay lipstick which feels so soft and nourishing, I swear it feels like a rich chapstick going on. The color I chose for the lipstick is Sizzling Red…and just like it sounds, it’s sassy! You can order this lip color from my Mary Kay representative and new PB buddy, Hilary, via her website or reach out to her about finding the perfect shade of red for you HERE!

This column is part of our monthly Beauty Bits installment. Make sure you check out my Pure Barre friends style briefs, The Style Gathering, and my scoop to see what their favorite beauty items are this month!

Put Your Heart to Paper

 

Love Cards

 

Put Your Heart to PaperThere’s something so special about the written word. It has the ability to pull at the heart strings, to make you cry, and to make you feel incredibly special. Don’t take this for granted this Valentine’s Day! I’m challenging you along with Hallmark to put your heart to paper this February to let those around you know how much you love them.

I wish I was as good at writing cards as my husband is. I would say at least half of the cards he’s written me have made me tear up. It’s incredible to see those words on paper so thoughtfully written in a way to make you feel appreciated. If you’ve never taken the 5 Love Languages test, I’d highly recommend you do it. Whenever I think of writing a note, it makes me think of words of affirmation which is one of the love languages.

Your challenge, if you choose to accept it, is to put your heart to paper. Write two notes to people you love in your life. Maybe do one romantic one and one that is friendship based. It’s a great way to make sure those around you know how much you care. For me, it’s still really special to get something in the mail because it means the person took extra time and thought to mail it to me instead of dashing off a quick Facebook message or email. Watch the video below to get a little more inspiration. These two made me tear up!

ENTER TO WIN! Each reader who comments below on this blog post with a link to a social share (either on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Pinterest) of  your own act to “put your heart to paper” will be entered to win a randomly selected $250 VISA gift card! So, get to writing and posting how you are putting your heart to paper this Valentine’s Day season! Make sure you tag @My Life Well Loved and to use #PutYourHearttoPaper so I can see your post as well on social media.

Garlicky Guacamole

Garlicky Guacamole-My Life Well Loved

 

Garlicky Guacamole-My Life Well Loved

 

Garlicky Guacamole-My Life Well LovedI am embarrassed to admit this to you all…but I used to be one of those weirdos that didn’t like guacamole. There, I said it and it’s out. I was repulsed by the thought of it as a kid and even into high school and college. But, then a friend made this Garlicky Guacamole recipe. I took the first bite and was sold! No turning back for this girl! I think the garlic flavor in this recipe is what drew me in. I’ve always loved garlic in any recipe so I should’ve known the little anti inflammatory ingredient could turn me into a fan of pretty much anything!

Since I’ve been turned onto guacamole, I’m known by my friends and family to go to Mexican and just order a taco and guac or a taco and queso as my meal. It’s really all I need to be a happy camper! Ok, and a margarita doesn’t hurt either! So, even if you don’t think you like guacamole, I’m going to dare you to try this recipe and give it another whirl!

With all kinds of big games on now and coming up (Hello Superbowl, March Madness, and even just fun game nights with friends!), I figured you could use this recipe to be the hit of the party! Here’s a few ways I’ve served this recipe:

-Topper for tacos, soups, etc

– Served in a short clear cup layered with Old El Paso refried beans, taco shells crunched up, tomatoes, ground beef or chicken and sour cream

-Served as shown here straight up with chips or for a Whole 30/paleo option with bell pepper strips

-Use as a layer for Mexican Layered Dip

Great news, I’ve also got some Publix coupons for you guys to use while buying the ingredients to make up a Mexican fiesta at your next game day gathering! And, who can turn down coupons for produce?! Those don’t come around to often.  Go HERE to print off coupons for avocados from Mexico and Old El Paso products!

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Fit Chic post, which means its way overdue! And, if I’m being honest with myself, I just wanted yet another excuse to wear these beautiful over the knee boots from Shoefly (on sale now!) and this to die for Karma wrap. The Karma wrap can be worn so many ways, but I mainly do the short cardigan way as shown here. Fit Chic is all about dressing yourself in the transition from workout to lunch date. It’s a way to up the ante on boring everyday gym shorts and a tee.

With all the fabulous brands and high-performance workout to lifestyle gear out there, you have no excuse to not look cute while working out or jetting around in your yoga pants running errands. Let’s talk about the basics of this outfit and how it got transformed. It started out with gym pants, a tank, some cute Kate Spade studs, and a headband. But, the great thing about lifestyle wear is there are so many options to mix and match and take your look from ho-hum to casual chic.

To get ready for a lunch date with the hubs after a Pure Barre class, I threw on my Sam Edelman boots (That leather though!), a black cowl neck shirt, my Karma wrap and that stunning Kendra Scott ring. The next step is to do a quick touch up of your lip gloss, let down your hair and spritz a little dry shampoo and call it a date look!

Fresh Superbowl Party Dip

Fresh Bean Dip Appetizer

Fresh Bean Dip Appetizer

 

 

Fresh Bean Dip AppetizerAre you hosting a Super Bowl party or in charge of bringing something for the big game? We are looking forward to watching with friends and I am not going to lie, I’m more excited about Katy Perry  than the game. I don’t have a dog in the fight so I’m looking forward to laughs and good times with our friends and GOOD FOOD! And, that’s where this recipe comes in…

This light and fresh dip is something we make over and over again in our home! We enjoy the bright colors this dip has in it as well as the nice light taste. It’s a great contrast to the many other heavy, cheesy apps that may be around. We love to serve this dip on organic, all natural chips but I’ve also been known to eat it as a side salad by itself!

This classic appetizer recipe came from Eric’s family friends and they make it with 2 cans of black beans (no chickpeas), more oil, and an additional packet of Italian Dressing. In order to make it more fresh and healthy though, we cut back on the oil and Italian dressing packet and substituted one of the cans of beans for chickpeas for some additional protein. Next time I want to try it sans Italian dressing at all to make it clean eating friendly. :) This recipe is really flexible so make it work for you!

I hope you and your family have a blast watching the game and enjoy some fabulous food! What’s your favorite appetizer?

Fresh Superbowl Party Dip
 
Ingredients
  • 1 envelope Good Seasons Italian dressing
  • ⅓ c vinegar
  • ⅓ c oil
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can corn, drained
  • ½ c diced jalapeno, drained and chopped
  • Add green, red, yellow pepper amount of choice
Instructions
  1. Combine all together and refrigerate for a few hours to let all flavors soak in.
