As summer winds down, (can you believe September starts at the end of next week?!), I find myself strategically looking for ways to distract myself from the impending termination of my favorite season.  Most of these summer-extending techniques include relishing in the wonders that June, July and August have brought me, and clinging on to these things, both physically and mentally, as long as my iced tea-clutching hands can cling.  I hereby proclaim that until my tan completely fades, summer will live on!  Who’s with me?!

And until then, I will continue to enjoy some of my favorite things I’ve collected this summer…{my collection of delicate earrings- all purchased on Nantucket}{the most AMAZING go-to shirt. ever. seriously, perfect fit on everyone and works for every occasion. & i snagged it on sale at anthro!}{upcycled cliquot bottle as a bracelet holder}{my secret collection of perfume samples from Nordstrom- right now I’m loving Viktor&Rolfe Flowerbomb, Hanae Mori #7, and Marc Jacobs Dot}{an antique print i picked up at the brimfield flea market (anyone else going to the next round in september?)}

Just a little update on the workout/cleanse the roommie and I started Tuesday…

Today my roommate/partner in crime/workout buddy traveled to the Cape (lucky duck!) to sit some babies, and I surprised myself by continuing the workout regime all by my little old self.  This may seem like a small act of simple self-control…but let me just say, people, I am SORE.  Not your average sore, either, but 3rd-day-into-new-fitness-routine-after-several-months-of-increased-couchtime, fiery pain in my back, arms required to stand up from any position because my legs are like jelly, S-O-R-E.  But like they say, it’s good to feel the burn…no pain no gain…sweat is fat crying…you know the schpeal.

Anyone else trying to get in better shape?  I raise my homemade, delicious and nutritious, post-workout protein smoothie to you, cheers!  Oh and here are some pictures that might help you along (I know they’re kicking me in the buns!)…

P.S. Dang, Miley has a nice body, huh?!  I hate this phrase but- prime thinspiration!

Have a great, healthy Thursday, chickens!
