After more than nine years of traveling through space the New Horizons spacecraft is now in the home stretch of its journey, with less than 120 days and 143 million kilometers to go before it makes its historic flyby of the Pluto system on July 14. It will be the first time we get a good close-up look at the distant world which had for over seven decades held reign over the frozen edges of our Solar System as the outermost planet, much like its namesake governed the cold darkness of the mythological Greek underworld.

Discovered on February 18, 1930, the ninth planet Pluto lost its “full” planetary status in August 2006 as the result of a highly-contested decision by the International Astronomical Union (IAU) to create a new class of “dwarf planets,” of which Pluto, Ceres, and the then-recently-discovered Eris became charter members.

Boyfriend T’s Go Pro

thWhy I am obsessed with  boys shirts reason numero uno—

They make great workout Gear!

No but seriously they do.

My secret obsession with boy clothes started when i was in High School, my friend and I would shop up Good Wheel for never worn graphic tshirts and cut them up to wear to the gym. Back then, we wore baggy ill fitting sweats and shorts with these shirt, using them for function not their coolness—

If only I had known then what i know now, and that is athletic inspired looks are back in the biggest possible way.

I have been working in Mens product development for about a year and a half now, so I have been able to witness first hand the reemergence of athleisure. I have also been tempted on to many times with these mens samples, that before i came to my senses I was passing by.

It was not until we had a surplus of available fabric samples with really cool graphics, that I began to think about how I could use these items in a cool way. And just like that I was brought back to my childhood, and can not get enough of these boyfriend t’s cut all the way up for athletic wear and a cool yoga pant finisher. The great thing about Mens wear is that is is naturally longer and bigger on the shoulder, given it a normal oversized fit. Then, who need LuLu’s when you can take a simple cotton t and cut it up for wear– don’t forget where you are headed.

Which brings me to my final 3 take aways–

1. Use old or unused graphic Mens tshirts to work out in by cutting them mid shoulder to a quarter of the way down. Then get a fun sports bra and wHaLA you are done and have a look all you, and for much less

2. IF you spend a lot on your work out clothes, but go to the gym and stand around never breaking a sweat or Not going to the gym at all, you should be ashamed of yourself.

3.I personally feel that a great pair of yoga pants and cool cotton t are just has functional and cost way less than LuLu and Under Armor, that beings aid, buy key branded pieces if needed, but make sure they have performance features that can enhance your workout. Also, try not to work as much doing thing you would rather not do.

4. Finally, why are guys such creeps at the gym?

FRIDAY INSPO- AUDREY B@T WINDOW SEAL LOOK

images-1It is finally almost Friday, thank the good Lord. What Friday means to the working girl is relaxation.

My Weekend Inspo comes form this legendary Audrey look from Breakfast at Tiffany’s, particularly when she is sitting in the window singing. What is she wearing? A great French Terry Crew and simple jeans, head wrapped up, make up on low. This look couldn’t be more perfect for the working gal on her day of rest.

XOXO
