Majestical + Giveaway

It stopped raining in Dallas for a few hours so I could share Majestical Jewelry with you! Majestical Jewelry has the most amazing statement necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and more. They offered to send me a piece of jewelry, and a week later I received these GORGEOUS earrings! I typically only wear studs, but I am obsessed with these dangly sparklers. They add some glam to even the most casual outfit. They are a little heavier than your average earring, so I would save them for special occasions with a gown or a cocktail dress for the "wow factor", but otherwise I would give these babies an A+!

Now here's the exciting part for you! Majestical Jewelry is offering a $10 gift card to two lucky readers of my blog! All you have to do is comment below. In addition if you don't happen to win, Majestical Jewelry is offering $15 off orders of $55 or more using the code: 15DOLLARSOFF
So you should definitely go check out their website because they have beautiful pearl and gemstone jewelry, along with gold and silver bracelets and baubles.

Week 7 of 10: Beach-Bound Body Workout

Week: Seven
Height: 5' 5"
Weight: 103 lbs.
Goal: 105-110 lbs.
Workout Weakness: Arm Exercises
Workout Strength: Ab Exercises


One of the questions I received the most last week was what kind of clothing I liked to wear when doing my exercises.

I have three favorite lines that I like to wear:
1. Soybu
3. Lucy


*IMPORTANT REMINDER*: Before you do any of these exercises you need to stretch! Stretch your legs, arms, abs, and behinds. Afterwards: stretch again or you will be sorry in the morning!



All the exercises you can find here and here and here.

Just as a reminder: I am not a dietician, a nutritionist, a personal trainer, a fitness guru, or anything else of that nature. I played national junior tennis from the time I was a four-year-old, and to play any sport at a high level requires the help and personal knowledge of a good nutritionist and various personal trainers-so all of the advice above has been given by a team of highly specialized professionals to me and I am sharing it with you. 


PS: Follow me on instagram @ ekblake to see what I'm eating daily.

SAMMYgirl

I have been loving the weather in Dallas lately. The night are beginning to get warmer and the sleeves are beginning to become non-existent. I choose this wonderful polkadot maxi dress from SAMMYdress a few weeks ago-and when I received it, I was absolutely smitten. It's incredibly comfortable and is a very chic "throw-on" for a day of shopping, running errands, picking up kids at carpool, or even for an early dinner. It's a great day to night dress, and it comes with the braided cinch-waist belt (shown in pictures) so you are conveniently accessorized without having to dig around in your closet! (This is a major plus in my book, as I am usually running late). Also, I really enjoy the fact that this dress seems to elongate my body, and the high-low effect at the hem combined with the semi-sheer look gives this seemingly sweet dress a little extra oomph to make the overall look with heels more sexy than sweet.
