My Fave Workout Clothes: OTOMIX ACTIVEWEAR

Hey My SOS Sisters!

How is your October going so far?   I love the change of season- even though we don’t get much of it here in Cali-  there is still a refreshing change in the air, chillier mornings, everyone’s watching football (except for me) and pumpkins are for sale at the grocery store.  BTW, don’t forget one of my fave facials on the planet is the Pumpkin Facial – so after the kids are finished carving pumpkins- take the left overs and add a little honey and lemon. Your skin will glow!  I promise.

NEW WEBISODE:

In the latest SOS webisode, I take you on my photoshoot for the amazing fitness wear company, OTOMIX– my all time fave workout clothes!   We had a blast on the shoot.  I got to work with so many dear friends including actress/model/mommy blogger- Camille Anderson  and Vio Meyners beautifying us with her makeup brilliance!  When I moved to LA, Otomix was the first casting my modeling agent sent me on a little over 10 years ago.  If you look through old catalogs, I have every hair color and hair length imaginable-SCARY!   My fave items in the line are the PANTS!  Seriously, I have a few pair that are about 5-8 years old and they look brand new.  You know how faded black yoga pants can start looking after a few months?  NOT THE OTOMIX PANTS!  They hold their shape and color- PLUS, if you have long legs and find it tough to find workout pants long enough- then you have to try their lycra pants!

My friends at Otomix and I decided to give away one of my fave jumpsuits from the DAZZLE GROUP.  The fabric is so comfy and the pants make everyone’s bootie look so cute:-)

Hmmm, can a woman’s arms be too ripped?

Hey SOS Vixens!

As many of us are in the quest to reach our goal weight and optimal fitness- how far is too far?  Can a woman get too ripped? 

Hmmmm?

In this candid,  behind-the-scenes webisode, Plus Size Expert Marcy Guevara and Makeup Artist Vio Meyners chat about whether or not female TV Hosts should reveal their bare arms on camera. They bring up how ripped Kelly Ripa’s arms are and if that makes her unrelatable to viewers.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?  COMMENT BELOW!

Here’s my two cents: 

I actually love a sexy, toned, muscular arm on a woman!  Over the years, I have gone through phases where I wanted really rock hard arms then decided I like the way yoga kept my arms long and lean without the bulk.  I gain muscle really easy and have to be careful with weights.  At the end of the day, we all have to be able to look at ourselves in the mirror and like that chick staring back at us.  Whether you prefer a more soft, womanly appearance or a strong, muscular look-  DO WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY!   But, remember keeping our arms toned now will help how we look when we’re older.  You know the old arm wave and the bra overhang is not so pretty!

DON’T FORGET!  If you are subscribed to this blog, post a pic of yourself rockin’ your fave leopard print on the SOS facebook page and enter to win one of my fave leopard accessories!  Could be a scarf, belt, clutch…don’t miss out!

A DAY IN MY LIFE…

Hey SOS Sista’s,

I hope everyone is feeling Sassy, Stylish and Superfly today!   As I write this, I am gearing up for a fun girlie day of shopping and getting my hair done (honestly, I hate sitting in the salon chair) to get “purdy” for my B-day weekend coming up.    I have no clue what the festivities will be, but I know my honey and friends have something up their sleeve!   I want to hear how YOUR summer has been so leave a COMMENT BELOW and let us all know! (Hey, I made a rhyme)

In the latest webisode, I wanted to try something a little different and bought the newer version of the FLIP camera in HD.  That lil thing rocks!  Highly recommend you get one to record fun occasions with fam and friends!   They’re inexpensive and very user friendly.  Ok, back to the subject… I decided to tape my lovely Go-to-Girl, Vio Meyners in a typical day of ours.  We start with a workout, play in her closet, head to an audition, lunch and tape an SOS webisode with Marcy Guevara (coming soon!!). 

Just FYI, no- I do not go around looking this made up on a daily basis unless I have auditions or meetings!  The tomboy is still very alive in me and on most days, I’m sporting track pants and tennis shoes!  Hope you enjoy a glimpse into my life.  Let me know what ya think and if you would like to see more “reality show”style webisodes…

I get so excited every season to see what the latest & greatest styles will be!   Good thing for all of us FASHIONISTA’S, many of the trends we’ve been seeing since last Fall 2010 through Spring 2011 are the same.  Makes it easy on the wallet!  Get ready to shop your closet before hitting the stores.  You know me, I’m googoo gaga over all the LEOPARD print out right now and did purchase a smokin’ hot pair of leopard shoes. Could not resist.  PURRRR!  So,  if you have a leopard print piece, this is the season to ROCK IT!  

In fact, upload a photo of yourself rockin’ your leopard to the SOS facebook page and a winner will be chosen to win a VERY special prize – one of MY FAVE ACCESSORIES!   ONLY SUBSCRIBERS TO THIS BLOG ARE ELIGIBLE!

My Fave Quote This Week:
“Oftentimes, people allow the opinions of others to hold them back & water down their dreams. But, we have to realize that there will always be critics & naysayers in life. One of the most important things you can learn is that other people don’t have to believe in you in order for your dreams to come to pass. Other people don’t set the limits for your life — YOU DO! (Joel Osteen)
