hiiii guys! Fresh new week and I’m so pumped for this week to begin! So many things to look forward to and hoping to share soon! 
I don’t know about you guys, but I’m constantly writing out to-do lists for everything and every time: day, week, month, year.
For now, my top priorities on my to-do list are:
- New blog design/banner
- Save $$$
- Getting in touch with my career advisor at F.I.D.M
- Let hair/bangs grow + change hair color
- Take a photography class ( hopefully in the fall!)
- Work out; (hard for me to stay motivated in this area) any tips?
- Learn how to do videos and edit
- Drink more water!

I obviously have more things on my list, but these are the ones that I really want to focus on.
If you guys have any tips on any of the above, do share! Would love to hear!
Also, super cooool feature on my blog over at Aussie site mylookbook.com.au
They featured me on the cover of their Fall ’11 online magazine! Wowsers! Pretty rad, I had nooo idea!

    Amazing boots.
    As far as working out goes, do something fun or that you enjoy! I do dancing which is so good for keeping fit; I love doing it, too, so I don’t lost motivation.

    I love your blog design! Don’t change it… :) As far as workig out goes, I just wrote a post how I always give up on it during the summer-it is way too hot (that’s my excuse) :) So I don’t think I’m the right person to be giving advices on this subject :)
    Great boots!

    i like to go to classes to work out; like yoga or kickboxing or something. or i will find a partner to go running with. i find that if i am accountable to someone (even the teacher of a class), i will actually stick with it.

  21. Virginie Comment #21

    Hi!
    First I LOVE your blog, your outfits are incredible and I love that your style is simple (in a good way) and I can see myself wearing the same things.

    I saw in one of your previous article that you were looking for hair color inspiration. Personally , I really love the recent hair color of Olivia Palermo. I love the fact that the color is shining so much and that there are some lighter shades without being a total ombré. I don’t don’t if I’m clear but I’m attaching some links where you can see what I’m talking about.
    Also I would really love to see what you look like with short hair :)

    Here are the links:

  22. Queen.OnSet Comment #22

    the boots are just perfect, especially the colour! :)

    It sounds stupid but you will only work out constantly if you really start enjoying the feeling you get after actually working out and…well…the result when you look into the mirror. plus, if you sign a contract to go to the gym and you actually pay money for it you feel forced to go there or else it would have been a waste of the money you worked hard for haha well that´s the motivation that works out for me ;)

  23. cuteredbow Comment #23

    Love this black outfit and love your hair as always !

  24. Sheree Comment #24

    Awesome outfit..love the subtle makeup with it too! My work-out tip is to do it in the morning. It is much easier to stick with it if you do it first thing when you wake up..also you burn more on an empty stomach.

    Work out with a girlfriend and take classes like yoga or pilates or spinning! It makes it a lot more fun so that you actually WANT to go to the gym. Going out for a celebratory drink or shopping afterward helps too. :]

  45. nicole Comment #45

    Hi, Jules! I’m new to your blog. I came over from Emmadime. I love your style. And we share many of the same goals.

    As for exercise, I’ve found what works for me, and I’m sticking with it, so I thought I’d share my advice. I recommend a group class such as Pilates or hip hop dance or bootcamp. I have done all three of these and found them highly successful. Being part of a group class holds you accountable – because if you skip, somebody will invariably ask you, “so… where were YOU on Wednesday, huh?” (Busted.) Currently, I do bootcamp (super-intense, butt-kicking workouts) three days a week, and I love it. I feel energized, confident and strong. Good luck! Report back with what you find works for you! xo.

  62. Taylor B. Comment #62

    I drink Crystal Light to get more water in me. The flavors are plentiful to choose from and no sugar!

    As for motivation to work out, I get on the Wii-Fit, but even then, I don’t do it often enough.

    Save money; put it into a CD so you can’t touch it. Even if it’s just for 6 months. Out of sight out of mind.

    Good luck with all of your goals!

    It’s best to work out in the morning and sometimes, I know, it’s super hard to get up and go! Sleeping with your gym clothes on helps, just leave your shoes next to your bed and now you’re all set with no excuse not to go!

    Love the idea of changing the hair – we change our clothes depending on the season so why not the hair? we are in Winter here in New Zealand, so I am going from ombre dark blond, a bit like yours, to bright RED like Taylor Tomasi Hill…. cant wait! good luck with yours!!! I think would suit red/auburn… your skin tone is perfecto!!

  105. Aftermysong Comment #105

    Love the outfit, as always!!!

    Ohhhh the gym… I felt the same as you. I recently got a gym membership because before I used to occasionally visit the one at school for free. Paying for a gym membership makes you want to go because otherwise its like throwing your $$ out of a window of a moving car!

    When you start, try to find something that you enjoy. I personally love spinning. Most of the time the music is super fun and the group class is great because you feed off of everyone else’s energy to keep you going. It’s tough to get through the whole class but when you are done it feels so good and it’s rewarding to know you are doing your body well!

    Lastly, a gym buddy makes going to the gym a million times better. You are accountable to someone, you can learn new workouts from or with them, and at least with me it never fails that working out with a buddy always makes it more fun! (My gym buddy and I recently got reprimanded to laughing to much and not working enough lol)

    Sooo I guess the best way to get motivated is to find a way to make it fun!!

    Hey, your hair is amazing! But change is sometimes necessary to not get bored, I totally get that. I love the boots, except I don’t like the black toe…otherwise they would be perfect! I like to take my dog for runs, because then if I don’t go I feel guilty that I’m not only denying myself exercise, but him too. Guilt always works for me haha.
