Getting healthy and fitt

Hello dear readers and followers,

Today I have to do my second fittest from the INSANITY programm by Shaun T. As I am doing quite well with the daily workouts I thought: “Why not share my progress with you all and keep myself motivated by blogging about it?!” … So, that’s what I am going to do from now on! Not daily, but after finishing every week I will give you guys and girls a quick review of the past week and how it went. 

Yesterday I finished week 2 and I must say, during week 2 I had a little bit of a dip on wednesday. For me personally the warming up is the hardest because of the buttkicks and the highknees. Luckily yesterday went pretty good and I can allmost keep up the whole pure cardio workout!

So far I am on this point of the whole INSANITY programm: 

As you can see I will be doing two things today, because I am behind one day! So in an hour I will be doing the fit test (to see my progress since week 1… I am excited!) and at the end of the day I will be doing the Plyometric Cardio Circuit workout… 

Wish me luck for today!!

Trends spring 2013

Hi all!

Spring is coming, in my humble opinion it should be here rather sooner than later ;). So what I did last weekend was researching the upcoming spring/summer trends and also, did a little only shopping spree (so when the money comes in… it can go to a very nice fund, my wardrobe!). 

During my research and my preparations for money spending, I found some nice ideas and trends… I must say, sometimes I really don’t like the trends and I feel kinda misplaced the whole season because the shapes or colors don’t match me very nice, or atleast, I probably just think they don’t while the maybe do. Upcoming season, in one word: WOW! I just love the upcoming trends!!! I just can’t wait to fill my wardrobe with these amazing colors and prints! 

What I found was that pastel and sorbet colors will be IT, during the spring and summer. The colors have already been seen by Roberto Cavalli and Blumarine, combined with beige. Also colorful metallics as seen by Burberry will be one of the trends. For a nice example check: The Blonde Salad 🙂 

Some colors that will also be popular next season:

  • Different shades of Green
  • Different shades of Yellow
  • Icy shades like lightblue
  • Natural shades
  • Purple
  • Red
  • Orange
  • Cobaltblue
  • Pink
My personal favorite trends for the spring / summer season would be the animal prints, see-trough fabrics, bouclé (probably best known from Chanel), etnic prints (for example mayan prints), Japanese kimono as seen by for example prada, the pastel colors and the water colors.
