Abercrombie Spring Fashion Finds

Hi friends! How are you? I hope you enjoyed the weekend! Ours was packed with fun events and the girls got in their first swim of the season. I’d love to hear what you were up to!

For today’s post, I wanted to share some cute Abercrombie finds for spring and summer! I fought the Abercrombie resurgence for so many years… it just brought back memories of a popped collar polo with a lacy tank underneath, short frayed denim skirt, and Rainbow sandals 🙂 I worked at Abercrombie in high school – I wasn’t cool enough to be a “model” but I was a super efficient cashier I tell ya – and spent my entire paychecks on clothes.

Needless to say, when I saw Abercrombie making a comeback for our generation (those who don’t want to look too young but also not too matronly), I was skeptical. Then, I started to see more and more of it, and realized that the quality is still there, but the styles are more classic. It also gives off a Reformation-ish vibe, and I’m here for it. They have SO many cute things right now, so I wanted to dedicate a post to sharing some of my faves.

Here are the goods!

Friday Faves 4/19

Life:

We had the most amazing date night at Le Rendezvous last weekend. It’s a Tucson classic, and so many people have raved about it, so we finally tried it out. Everything was a dream.

We shared scallops for an appetizer, enjoyed wine, the beef tenderloin for two (with perfect satueed veggies and a lil scalloped potato statck I wanted to live in), and Grand Marnier souffle. YUM. We’ll definitely be back with the girls, especially because they have escargot; their all-time favorite appetizer.

I realized I never posted before and after pics for our great floor project. We had our carpet upstairs replaced with laminate, and they also re-did our bedroom and office, since they used to be hardwood. We just wanted everything to match, and wanted a neutral brown that would be classic.

I’m so so happy with how it turned out!

We also had the railing on our stairs replaced.

This is what it looked like before:

Summer Sangria

Web Admin 0 16 Article rating: No rating

I believe that it’s always a good time for sangria, so please feel free to replace “summer” in the name of this easy summer sangria recipe with the season of your choice 😉

Comment section screenshot

Sangria, or wine punch, is a fantastic party beverage, especially if you can make it at home and let it sit in the fridge overnight. I made last night’s sangria at the BBQ we went to, because I had visions of exploding sangria and the Pilot’s car smelling like wine and brandy for the rest of the year. I personally don’t mind the smell of wine and brandy, though…

For this recipe, I like to use inexpensive dry red wine, like a cheap Spanish wine. If you prefer white wine, you could definitely swap the red wine for pinot grigio or sauvignon blanc and make a white wine sangria that tastes just as delicious. I know plenty of people who also like to add lemon lime soda for some carbonation, but you can skip adding that and not miss a thing. After all, the key ingredients here are the fresh fruits (summer fruit in this case) and wine for sangria that’s off the charts amazing yet surprisingly simple.

What is rebounding and should you add it to your routine?

Sharing my thoughts on rebounding and if I think it’s worth adding it to your routine. 

Hi friends! How are ya? I hope you’re having a lovely morning so far! I have a Spanish lesson today and am getting my nails done this afternoon after a bunch of client calls. I hope you have a wonderful day.

For today’s post, I wanted to talk about something I’ve loved for years, but have just recently implemented into my daily routine: rebounding!

In the world of fitness, rebounding has gained popularity in recent years – bouncing on a mini-trampoline. But is rebounding just a trendy fad, or does it offer real benefits for your health and fitness?

Let’s chat about what rebounding is all about, its pros and cons, and whether you should consider adding it to your routine.

What is rebounding and should you add it to your routine?

What is Rebounding?

Rebounding involves bouncing on a mini-trampoline, often to music or following a structured workout routine. It’s a low-impact form of exercise that can be adapted to suit individuals of all fitness levels.

Pros of Rebounding:

Low-Impact: Rebounding is gentle on the joints, making it suitable for people with joint pain or mobility issues. When you bounce, you can also keep your feet on the rebounder at all times and will still get benefits from the motion.

Cardiovascular Fitness: Bouncing on a rebounder can provide an effective cardiovascular workout, helping to strengthen the heart and improve overall fitness. It can definitely increase your heart rate!

Lymphatic System Support: Rebounding stimulates the lymphatic system, which aids in detoxification and immune function.

Improved Balance and Coordination: The act of bouncing requires coordination and balance, which can be beneficial for overall stability. Proprioception – knowing where our body is in space – is an important skill to maintain as we age to help prevent falls and balance issues.

Stress Reduction: Rebounding can be a fun and enjoyable way to relieve stress and improve mood, thanks to the release of endorphins during exercise. Bouncing is super fun!

Muscle strengthening: Rebounding engages multiple muscle groups, some of which you might not often work (like calves).

Increased Bone Density: Rebounding is a weight-bearing exercise, which can help to improve bone density and reduce the risk of osteoporosis over time.
