My favorite workout music

I received a request on Tumblr to post my workout playlist, so here it is!!





I'm trying to work out every day in order to get back into shape, and listening to the right music definitely helps. I like really energetic music, especially angry rock!! Another thing that I do in order to get me in the right mood when I'm working out is to watch Legally Blonde. It sounds ridiculous, but it's my favorite movie, and when I watch it I get more inspired to work out because it involves skinny sorority girls!! 

What music do y'all listen to when you work out? Let me know!!

Have a great day!!

A Weekend in New Canaan and Ridgefield, Connecticut

Last weekend I had so much fun with my mother while we were walking around New Canaan and Ridgefield, CT! Usually my mom and I go every weekend to Greenwich, New Canaan, Westport, Wilton, or any other small towns in Fairfield County to walk around or go shopping.  I know New Canaan very well, but I had only been to Ridgefield a couple of times very long ago. It was really fun and I had a great time!!


Here is a really badly taken picture from my mom's iPhone of New Canaan. It has a ton of little, privately owned shops as well as larger chain stores such as J. Crew and Ralph Lauren. It is definitely the preppiest town in Fairfield County in my opinion!! 


Garelick and Herbs is a small market/cafĂ© that has a couple of locations in FC. There is a store 5 minutes away from my school so I always go there for lunch to get a great create-your own-salad! 


Tequila Mockingbird. MY FAVORITE PLACE EVER. Yes, it looks kind of sketchy from the outside, but it is one of my absolute favorite restaurants! It has delicious mexican food and my family and I go there once a week, sometimes twice!



Last weekend, we went to Gates (which is right next to Tequila) for lunch. 


There is also a J. Crew in New Canaan. I go there all the time and everyone who works there is so nice!!



My mother and I bought a ton of Girl Scout cookies that were being sold in town.



Next, we went to Ridgefield! It is only about 20 minutes away from New Canaan and really close to our house!


Ridgefield had the cutest bookstore. My mother bought an interior design book for our house!!





We were so happy to find the store Turkey Ridge in Ridgefield. It had a lot of cute items like jewelry and home accessories!


We were successful in finding some equestrian themed items with which to decorate our house!!



Lastly, we finished off the day with Starbucks in the fantastic red Christmas cups!!! 

Have a great day!

Lilly Outfit of the Week: Tweed and Plaid

Here is my Lilly mannequin outfit of the week!! 


I have yet to wear this outfit, but I absolutely love it!! Everything is from J. Crew. I am so happy that the brand has had an uphill season!! I like almost everything from J. Crew now (which is really rare for me). Thank goodness they're returning to their more traditional roots. 



I actually wore this necklace today for the first time since forever and I got a ton of compliments. I like how chunky it is! I really like J. Crew jewelry now, even though this particular necklace is from a couple of years ago. 

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend. My family and I had a great time!!! Also, there are so many sales and specials going on right now because of the holiday season!!! I won the Lemon and Line giveaway from Summer Wind last week and y'all should know that Lemon and Line is having an extra day for everything to be 20% off on their website! Check it out!!

Have a great day!!

The Pink and Green Prep Update




Hey y'all!! Sorry that I haven't been posting. I had a crazy week last week due to the fact that it was tech week!! I had 6 hour rehearsals the entire week, plus 3 regular shows of The Pajama Game! It was a ton of fun and I'm so happy that I was able to be a party of it. I've been in every musical for my school (except for  one) since 5th grade, and I'm gonna miss it! 



It's so weird not doing anything now, though!! I have so much free time in the afternoon!! So, today I started my diet/exercise regime to fill my time for the winter. I only have 1 more college supplement to do before I'm done with everything college related (until I hear back from the actual colleges), so working out will help me get in shape (to get back to my prom weight!!) and help me not waste my time. I don't want to get "Senioritis" this early in the year!! My friends and I are going to go to spinning classes, as well as kickboxing and Zumba! I absolutely love Zumba so I'm really excited to start doing it again. I actually really like working out and I'm glad that I have the time to exercise more!


I have Thanksgiving break starting Wednesday, and I'm SO happy. I'm really worn out from the musical and school work!! What are y'all doing for Thanksgiving?? 

How have y'all been? Let me know!!

The Pajama Game



This week is the final Tech Week (commonly known as "hell week") for my school's fall musical, The Pajama Game!! I cannot believe our preparation is finally coming to an end, for the musical will run for 2 nights and 1 matinee this weekend. It has been so much fun and it's very sad that it is my last high school production. I will be at the theater every night this week until 9:30 for tech rehearsals, dinners, run throughs, costume fittings, as well as trying to squeeze in some time for homework and sleep. It's a crazy time but it's so worth it!! 

The Pajama Game is an adorable musical about a strike at a pajama factory in the 1950's. It sounds boring, but it's actually really upbeat and fun!! It was on Broadway, and then it was made into a movie with Doris Day as the female lead, Babe. 

Have y'all heard of the Pajama Game? What are y'all doing this week? Let me know!!

I hope everyone has a great day!!

Benefit Cosmetics Lash Tinting

Today I had a great time having my lashes tinted at Benefit Cosmetic's Beauty Bar in New Canaan, CT. I have been to the store a million times (since Benefit is my favorite makeup brand) and I had only heard from a couple people about their tinting services. So, I made an appointment and today I stopped by and had my lashes done! 

This isn't me (obviously), but this is what it looks like to get your lashes tinted at Benefit!

First, I had to take off all of my eye makeup and they put Vaseline under my eyes so that the skin under my eyes would be protected from the color. Then, I had to close my eyes for 15 minutes so that the lash dye could be put on. It stung a little bit and felt super heavy on my eyes, but the lady who helped me was really nice and kept the conversation up the entire time. Afterwards, the dye was wiped off and I was done!!

I was surprised at how easy the application was, and also that it was relatively inexpensive!! The whole thing cost $23 for the 20-minute long process, and the lash tint is supposed to last for 4-6 weeks. My eyelashes are really blond at the ends, but now I can really see how long they are!! I love the results and I would definitely recommend going to the Benefit Beauty Bar to have it done!!

Have any of y'all had your lashes tinted? Let me know!!

Have a great week!!

Annabelle Grace (Part 2): Lilly!!

Here is the 2nd part of my Annabelle Grace's closet post!! Whenever there is a sale at our favorite Greenwich Lilly Pulitzer, my mother goes straight to the children's section and we choose the cutest baby dress. Here are all of the little Lilly's she have bought so far!!










Too cute!!

Have a great day!! I'm getting sick (unfortunately) and it's especially difficult because I need to be at school this week!! It's the last week of rehearsals before the Musical's tech week, and I've already missed a couple of days this semester due to college visits. Fortunately, my ED/EA grades ended yesterday morning so I don't have to worry too much about turning things in on time!!

Annabelle Grace (Part 1)

Disclaimer: Don't judge me for this post!! Haha!!

My mother and I are totally excited for when the time comes for me to have a baby. Yes, that is going to be in a long time (I'm only 17!!) but it's fun to plan things out!! I've decided that when I have a baby, and if it's a girl, her name will be Annabelle Grace! I think it's the prettiest name ever!!

My mother, on the other hand, has gone a step further. A couple of years ago, she started to buy little baby clothes in advance for when the time comes for me to have a baby!! They are ADORABLE. In our new house, we have a little closet for the baby clothes and accessories!! I found it when I was showing my friends around last weekend, and it's so cute!!!



 



And here are some of the clothes she has bought!






Aren't they adorable!?!?

Have a great day!!
