Honeybrick



One of the few male readers that I'm aware of on LCH suggested yesterday that I put the song at the very start of the post so you can click play and listen along while you read and scroll through. Made a lot of sense (obviously!) so I think I'll start taking that route! Still trying to get my Adobe situated but hopefully I can have that under control soon. This morning I woke up at decided to do Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred instead of jaunting over to the gym. WHOA! I've had Jillian's workouts on our Xbox/Kinect before but this was a whole different ball game. As she shouts "I know you want to die right now!" I'm like "YES! YES I DO! OMG!" haha I managed to sweat more in that 20 minutes than I did in 75 minutes of Hot Yoga (in 104 degree heat!). Then again our loft warms up quickly if we don't have the AC on, but I had to go lay on the couch for a bit to stop the nauseousness afterward! It was brutal. Here's to hoping I ever get out of Level 1!


These photos were taken at the same place as the ones posted yesterday. I loved the lighting and contrast of all of the materials in this one. Sure, you can see a random (beer?) can over in the corner, but whatever! I'm sure a lot of high schoolers are up to their shenanigans in that little place. This dress is one that I sold in Kaelah's Closet (there's an almost identical one still up for grabs here!). I took it out for a little ~Last Hurrah! before listing them. You'll see several over the next few days or so. I try to wear items (even if just around the house for like 10 minutes) to see if I like them enough to keep them. I liked this dress, but didn't want to bother with hemming it a bit shorter so off it went! The color is fantastic though!


Today I was supposed to have lunch with my dad but in light of recent (and unfortunate) events, I don't think those plans will be happening. I'll try to work on the shoppe for a bit and bloggy things, then Elle and Bryan are coming by around 7 and we'll grab dinner/hang out. Good friends are hard to come by and I feel so fortunate to have ones as wonderful as I do. Hope you're all having a fabulous Wednesday! xo

  2. I also do the 30 day shread when I need a little break for the gym or am short on time. It kicks my butt everytime but is a better workout than 45 minutes on an elliptical! I really like the contrast of your bright dress with the run-down wall.

  7. That wall is super great, love the texture.

    Is 30 day shred a kinect game? Or just a DVD? If it's a DVD, I may need to check that out..

  9. 30 day shred is a beast, but it really allows you to notice a difference in your strength and ability each time you do it. You'll be at level 2 in no time...and feeling stronger!

  10. The 30 day shred is such a killer! Surprisingly, she's also telling the truth when she says that it's easier for those on day seven than day one. You'll be at level two before you know it! Level three might be pushing it though ;)

  11. Dont worry Kaelah, Jillian gets easier! You're supposed to do each level for 10 days, but I did level one for like a month, trying to do the workout every day, to every couple days. You have to let your body rest or else you'll burn out. Level 2 is wayyyy harder than Level 1 for some reason, but 3 and 2 are comparable. The only thing I dont like about doing Jillian is that I cant listen to my own music to pump me up and still pay attention to all her directions, and super awesome sayings "pain is fear leaving the body!!!" (Brian yells that at me all the time randomly now hahahaha)

  12. I absolutely adore the color of that dress! And man, you seriously have some of the cutest cardigans. I think I am going to fly out there and raid your closet, ok?

    You know, I have been looking for a good at home workout and I have heard A LOT about this Jillian Michaels program. I very well may have to check it out.

    P.S. Today I have a Hive & Honey fascinator in my hair, and a dress from your shop in. You could say my outfit is sponsored by Kaelah Bee.

  14. 30 Day Shred is EVIL. But I did see a difference when I did it consistently. I actually like level 2 a lot better than level 1.

    So Yeah...So

  15. I tried the 30 day shred by jillian michaels for a week (maybe more,maybe less?). I had good intentions on doing it everyday and all that,but I decided it wasn't for me so I just started walking around the lake in my town. The lake is a mile one way around and I usually try to do 2 or 3 miles,but I haven't been to the lake in 3-4 weeks (eep!) because of gas. So now I just walk on our road (we live out in the country). I really love the contrast of the dress along with the wall! Lovely as usual! :)

  20. @Georgina: yes I'm wearing the size 8 here. It's a little baggy in the top/waist but it's a flattering cut and has a tie back. :)

  21. I did the 30 Day Shred a few months ago and, yes, BRUTAL. Level 1 & 2 are pretty close in relative intensity... but Level 3? Holy mess. It's INSANE! Good luck!

  27. Yellow is by far one of my favourite colours on you! I love this location. It's so perfect in it's imperfection! (I for one, think the beer can adds character!) ;)
