i ordered a new swimsuit from VS. an adorable neon coral with black polka dots. so stoked. and then, i got it in the mail. and...eh? pretty cute on. but i was somewhat dismayed. then the boy came over and could tell from my lackluster expression that i was less than pleased. so he proceeds: "are you disappointed because Miranda Kerr didn't come with the swimsuit too?"....
"This morning I was initiated into the unofficial “Fight Club” by my boxing instructor. He gave me this mini Everlast keychain! 6:30am may be a little early for upper cuts, but it’s such a great way to channel your inner Balboa – dispatch any angst you might have towards an ex-lover, high school mean girl, 57 inches of Winter snow-to-date…you know, the usual."
i want to take up boxing. not the kind where i will actually have to hit someone, but really just for the vigorous workout, the channeling of my inner energy (*cough* rage), or hey, maybe i want to be mark wahlberg from the fighter? so what's it to ya!? either way, i thought this post was great inspiration that any girly girl can come face to face with her inner Rocky. Your thoughts?

as i wandered target for almost two hours on sunday with no distinct purchase (or purpose) in mind, i stumbled (literally, stumbled over a basket in the beauty isle) upon these wipes...
Giovanni Organic Towelettes. Sanitary wipes for de-germing; post workout, after traveling on planes, trains and automobiles (you know that icky, sweaty, sticky feeling), or wrapping up a long night out when you have little motivation to use your arms or turn on the faucet. They are biodegradable, safe for all skin types and full of natural oils. I bought them in the travel size (6 pack for $3 at target) for my upcoming travels...and because I'm a sucker for anything in neat, small packaging that invites travel and convenience. In refreshing scents of grapefruit splash, energizing scents of peppermint surge and calming lavendar. xo,
