^^ check out that crazy hair!! Who doesn’t put their hair in a pony when they run?! 🙂

I’ve been trying to get outside as much as I can lately for an outdoor workout. It has been raining the past few days, but we’ve been having plenty of sunshine in between. San Francisco is such a beautiful city with so many opportunities to be active outdoors- I just love it! Today I wanted to share an outdoor plyos workout with you all. I’ve been trying to incorporate plyos and a longer cardio session at least once a week, to give my body a break from heavy weights. I also keep telling myself that I would like to do more yoga, but getting to a class, thats another story!

Plyos aka plyometrics is also known as jump training. It’s when muscles exert maximum force in short intervals of time, with the goal of increasing power (speed-strength).

Time to get outside and sweat!

My Favorite Activewear Brand

Hi loves! I haven’t posted in awhile so  I’m trying to get back into the swing of things! I have been traveling a lot for work lately (London, Cancun then LA to visit fam) and haven’t had a spare moment to blog- but I miss it!

Today I wanted to share some of my favorites from one of my favorite activewear brands- ALALA. This brand is super hip and trendy, kind of city chic which I love.

These mesh cut-out tights are my absolute favorite pair of tights I own! I wear them almost way too much! They are extremely high quality and haven’t changed a bit since throwing them in the wash every week.

How gorge is this marble print? Also loving the blue and of course the all mesh details. I think I will need to pick up the 2 sports bras on the top for sure! I have a similar style to the pants on the bottom right with a different print and love them.They are so comfortable and really flattering.

Since these picks are pretty pricey, I am thinking about sharing some of my favorite Forever 21 workout looks with you guys as one of my next fashion posts. They have a ton of cute stuff right now (and budget friendly)! Let me know what you guys think!
