Chrome Forged Rubber Factory

Wednesday, July 09, 2014

Last week, guests & customers were able to witness these amazing Chrome Forged Rubber shoes being made on this 70-year-old Slovakia Forged Rubber machine, which was originally used to make army boots in Europe. One shoe at a time, it was pretty cool to see all the pieces put together.

I've been into lighter colored shoes lately, so I picked out these light gray ones. Extremely comfortable and so well made!

Au Naturale

Monday, July 07, 2014

Ashley Prange founded Au Naturale for the woman who wants purely organic, vegan line of makeup to suit a healthier and more natural lifestyle. With price ranges of $15-35, this line is highly accessible with a whole ton of shades to choose from. Above, features their Beach Bombshell Box ($98/kit), in partnership with supermodel Julie Henderson, which includes a creme eye shadow, bronzer stick, highlighter stick, creme concealer, lipstick, and lip gloss -- all organic and definitely gives you that beach bombshell look without looking like you're wearing too much makeup.

Below are some of Au Naturale's products -- so far, my favorites have been their lipsticks. They're not too heavy or cakey, and the color isn't too vibrant, giving a great tinge of light color for the summer.

Fitness Fridays: Graced by Grit

Friday, July 04, 2014

Happy July 4th!  

Squeezing in an early workout in the morning in my new Graced by Grit gear! It's been SO hot and humid lately, and with crazy thunderstorms, I'm so glad these pieces are all so breathable and lightweight.

The delicious half zip - has thumbholes for comfort and made out of moisture wicking fabric. It even has a longer back to give extra bottom coverage - so practical, and makes working out so much more comfortable without worrying about having tops rise up while bending down or reaching up. It even comes with their signature whistle, which can be looped in the center back, for safety when going on those runs alone. Also wearing, the seamless adjustable cami bra which is so comfy, and the straps don't dig in. The land & sea knickers come with pockets, perfect for holding personal items - where the whistle can also be attached in the back pocket. All of these pieces come in an array of colors and prints, so chic for the summer!

Tasty Thursdays: Rochelle's

Thursday, July 03, 2014

I first visited Rochelle's with former coworkers, and I thought it would be the perfect place to take out my boyfriend for a belated birthday treat. Mainly a whiskey bar, they do have other delicious cocktails and food - although their whiskey wings are amazing. I personally love their parmesan & black pepper fries that come with 3 mouthwatering sauces: chipotle mayo, garlic aoli, and whiskey ketchup. It's in a great neighborhood and has a friendly atmosphere, and an incredible sense of humor. You'll see these fun, sarcastic quotes posted up around the walls.
