Brand Spotlight: Crane & Lion

With all the holiday events that I’ve been attending this month, I’ve been coming into contact with a lot of treats lately. I do have really good self control I must say. Unfortunately, working out since I have moved back to the Bay Area has been more than a challenge. It’s just not the same….In LA, I lived literally around the corner from Corepower Yoga, and I would go 2 times a day, morning and night to sweat and tone myself into oblivion. You know that LA lifestyle everyone jokes about with their green juice and acai bowl after every workout? Yea, that was me for years. I miss it, bikram was a lifestyle and I became fit as a fiddle and stronger than I ever had been.

I’ve really been lacking any sort of motivation to workout here in the Bay Area. Either the classes are at odd hours, or I don’t like the teachers or studio. Or I’d have to drive 15+ miles to the next Corepower, and at that point I’d be so ticked off with parking that I’d be late to a class. It’s just all bad. Call me a hater, I don’t mind.

Enter, new favorite athleisure brand, Crane & Lion. I was introduced to this brand through new friend Connie of Moderne Press. I’ve now been living in their leggings and jacket, running around town but looking put together while doing it. I love that they are affordable, and different than all the Lululemon stuff out there. Crane & Lion has made working out chic, which has motivated me to stop whining and get back to being active consistently even if it’s just in the living room or in our neighborhood.

It’s hard to get motivated, it really is. And since I’ve been feeling discouraged lately, Crane & Lion has been getting me excited about working out on my own.

What about you? How do you stay motivated? Favorite way of working out?

Brand Spotlight: Clayton

Hi everyone. Not sure about you, but I’m so looking forward to cooler weather. For me, that means more sweaters, and light layers, but I want to have fun with them at the same time. Bodysuits are a way of doing that, which brings me to my favorite brand currently: Clayton.

Clayton’s affordable and easy to wear line are currently sold through my two favorite sites Revolve and Shopbop. I genuinely have been a fan of their jersey knits for a little while now, they’re the quintessential LA girl brand. So when they came out with all these bodysuits, I decided to try them out. Of course, the most flattering way to wear a one piece is with a high waist, so I opted to combine both trends together, and voile. Easy, effortless, and also proving that you don’t have to be built like a Kardashian to wear the trend…I think you guys will be seeing more of these looks from me. What do you think?
