Everyone knows that after all the sweets and parties over the Holidays, January is the time to get back on track and feel healthy again. For those of you who read our New Year’s Resolutions, you know that W and I are working to get toned this year before we walk down the isle. The first step to that… working out. W and I will be running a half marathon along with 4 of our best friends. So here it goes, our shameless plug: we are raising money for CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates), a philanthropy we all hold close to our hearts. The race is in 2 weeks, so the clock is ticking… We need help raising money for this amazing organization. If you are at all interested in helping out, we’d more than appreciative. Every little bit counts. Click here to donate.
On that note, to making working out more fun, I always like to start with some cute workout clothes. Here are some of my favorites ON SALE right now. You can look cute and get a great deal too.

W and I are proud to be Carnegie Mellon Tartans, and this season’s plaid trend couldn’t be more fitting for us. Try a pair of plaid ankle length trousers, a white blouse, ankle booties and chunky jewelry.
I have always envied fur, counting down the days of summer till it is appropriate to wear again (even in Los Angeles weather). Pair a fur vest with a printed shift dress, a pendant necklace, knit tights and a great pair of thigh-high riding boots.
As W and I start planning our honeymoons, we are dreaming of luxurious spa days in Thailand, sipping café au laiter in Paris, and cozying up by the Trevi Fountain in Rome. This season, take inspiration from fabrics and textures from around the world. Try pairing a printed dress with a classic bucket bag, leather leggings and a pair of velvet ballet flats.
For our followers paying attention to my wedding planning, you know I love all things that sparkle. This season is your chance to channel your inner 1940’s Hollywood star. Think luscious red lips, fur collar trenches, classic pumps and an overload of jewelry.
