Fit & Thick with Nicole Mejia

As I’ve gottenĀ more and more into fitness over the past couple of years, I’ve drawn most of my inspiration and exercise ideas from social media, which is where I discovered Fit & Thick. Fit & Thick is a movement founded by Nicole Mejia that encourages women to embrace their natural physique and love their own unique body type. Although we all have a different goal to reach at the end, the underlying message is the same…and that is to love the skin we’re in. Nicole started this health and fitness company in October 2013 and since then her brand has motivated and inspired thousands of women all over the country. Last year’s Fit & Thick tour took place in 10 different cities all the way from the west coast to the east coast and they’re only going to be bigger and better this year – so ladies be on the lookout for tour updates because tickets sell out fast!

Da-da-da-dahhhhh (drum roll please….)

There are only a few things I can’t live without. Well technically…I could, but for the sake of this post, there are just some things too good to go on without.

But time and time again, I tend to gravitate towards these items (pictured above), because they have never let me down and I have found them to be so useful. Some I use on a daily basis and others more sparingly. Regardless I love them all the same!

This past year I had made up my mind I would not be a victim to the crazy holiday shopping bonanza. So much for that. I was bitten….bitten by the sneaky Cyber Monday bug. A routine email purge failed when I caught a glimpse that my all time favorite online clothing store, Lulus.com, was having an irresistible sale, one in which I was too curious not to take a peek. Why not? The holiday season was quickly approaching at the time, and I was on the lookout for a budget friendly dress that I could wear for Christmas parties or New Years Eve. I came across this suede shift dress with an adorable scalloped hem and couldn’t resist, especially since I didn’t own anything suede…up until now.
