Meet At The Barre

Favourite Recipe

Sangria counts as a recipe.

Favourite Song

This song is a wee bit lame, and the message is a bit stupid but I just love the beat and it's so fun to car dance to.

Favourite Blog

I am love love love loving Alyssa's blog and you should too. She is hilarious, gorgeous, gives a shopaholic some much needed budget help, has the most awesome leggings, and motivates me to get my butt off the couch and back into running



Favourite Quote

So freaking true, and is really hitting home with me this week.

Favourite Outfit

I love a good midi anything, and this red skirt is to die.for. I wish red looked as good on me as it does on Pamela over at Sequins and Sea Breezes.
original post

Favourite Workout

We all know I love a good lower body workout, and even better is one I don't have to leave the house for. I'll be honest, I have done this video a total of two times - once probably when it first came out, and then again last night. It buuuurrrrnnnns. You think it won't? Then please tell me your secret.

Favourite Purchase

If you follow me on the gram then you saw that this dress finally arrived from ASOS. I was surprised to get all thumbs up, from both IRL & blog friends. I really dig it.
I am positive it will look cuter with shoes + a bra.

Favourite Discovery

Kinda a discovery. Do you like books? If not, we can't be friends. If so..... go visit Carly and her summer book swap. Books + blog friends = all the fun, yes?? I am pretty sure the person I get will be given a copy of pride & prejudice... jk. jk.

Favourite Funnies










By the by, LESS THAN 2 WEEKS until I go home (for a visit). Can I get a little Aussie Aussie Aussie? (you say oi, oi, oi!)

  3. I am soooo checking out that Book Swap, thanks for sharing! *sigh* I miss the Spice Girls and their catchy songs, that gif is too funny. Also, I could scream hella loud if that appeared in my bathroom. I legit end up checking to make sure noone is in there all the time. We have a black one and I can't see through. Happy weekend!

  11. Oi Oi Oi? So...I learn something new every time I visit here! I've never heard that expression before, but I haven't know that many Aussies in real life, so maybe that's it. (Oh freaky, I just got an email that you commented on my blog while I am sitting here typing this! It's like...the real life version of GIF #2!!!) Two weeks to go! Will you still blog when you're away? (Er..home? IDK..)

  17. Sangria is most definitely a recipe! That book swap sounds like a great idea. I'm such a book fiend, especially in the summer when I can pair it with a glass of wine and a tanning session on my back deck :) I really like that quote! Especially in the blogging world, comparison can be deadly. Happy Friday xx

  18. Oh yes, that dress will be so cute fancied up with jewelry and stuff! And oh my gosh, that shower curtain is so disturbing. Even though the caption made me laugh. :D I think I would still be freaked out by it even if I already knew it was there...

    ReplyDelete
  19. You are hitting it out of the park with cute dresses! Can I pay you to shop for me?!

    That shower curtain is NOT right. I'd be dead on the floor in 2 seconds if that showed up in my house.

  20. After today I'm totally drinking a whole pitcher of sangria! Pam looks so cute!! Dying at that shower curtain like I would really die if my husband did that to me!! Have an amazing weekend!! Don't drink too much sangria even though I will!

    -that first gif.....story of our lives ;-)
    -hahahahaha I don't usually have that problem with men staring at my non existent ta tas but I do love that one.
    -Oh the Spice girls.....Posh was definitely my favorite!
    -Pretty sure if we all went out or lived near each other I would run out of wine in two days.
