New Year, New You: How to Get Motivated



It's been a little while since I posted an episode of my "Fab to Fit" series, but I discovered this hidden little gem as I was going through my video archives.  What better time to showcase "How to get Motivated" than right after the New Year?  Sometimes we find ourselves getting "stuck" or distracted by other activities that we have going on in our lives that we forget to focus on what's important.  Therefore, today's post is all about getting motivated and entering the New Year with a plan!

My Steps to Getting Motivated:

1)  Make a Plan

2)  Set Goals or a Time Frame

3)  Go into it with an Open Mind

4)  Stay on Schedule - No Distractions!

5)  Create a Mood Board

6)  Build a Team or Partnership

7)  Reward Yourself

What do you like to do to get yourself motivated?

The Bikini Diaries with Mi Ola

Despite the sudden cold rush that recently hit what seems like the entire nation, I have discovered the most comfortable swimwear collection that is my must-have item for a little "spring break" traveling.  The Mi Ola collection compiles vibrant colors with the sophisticated style and inspiration from tropical nature in Tamarindo, Costa Rica (think - the ocean, palm trees, gorgeous macaws, and tropical flowers).  I don't know about anybody else, but when I'm searching for the perfect bikini it must have: 

1) A snug fit that won't shift when I'm playing with son in the sand or ocean

2) A chic and sexy design that doesn't look like I'm rocking granny panties

3) Adjustable bottoms (just in case I have too many vegan cupcakes one day)

After discovering the Mi Ola collection, I had the chance to find out the inspiration behind the beautiful swimwear from Founder of Mi Ola, Helena Fogarty. Helena expressed,

"I started Mi Ola because I needed a chic, sexy suit that would stay on while I surfed.  I couldn't find any!  I have a background in fashion and business, so I decided to make the beach better for women and design a line that combines high style, high quality and high function.  We don't have to wear granny pants on the beach to make sure our assets are covered.  And actually, if we do, those big bottoms often come down more easily in the waves!"

New Year, New You: How to Organize + Set Goals

The time has come when we all sit back and think about what we can do, now that we have entered the New Year, to better ourselves with a fresh start to the year.  A few of my favorite things to do are to:  1) Do a juice cleanse, 2) Clean out closets or drawers, 3) Donate clothes that I don't need or wear, 4) Set goals, and 5) Clean the entire home.  There's something refreshing about getting rid of clutter and things that are simply taking up space in the home.  It's also a great feeling to give back to the less fortunate, which sets the year off to a motivational start.

What are some things that you do to begin the new year?

Style by Lynsee Looks of 2013

New Year's is literally right around the corner and something that I enjoy doing is going back into the blog archives to view my style evolution.  Needless to say, it has transformed over time and 2013 has been quite the journey for me.  Nonetheless, it has been another incredible year that I can do nothing but be grateful for each experience that I've encountered and expect only the best to come in the upcoming year.  With each new year comes many more memorable moments.  Be appreciative for what you have, be grateful for each person who has entered (or left) your life, and be patient for what is in store.  Thank you for coming along this journey with me and love you all!  XOXO.
