Camouflage Workout Clothes




I updated the look of my blog, let me know what you think!

Camo print is always on trend and I'm sharing clothes from four stores that have it. Seeing this darker color in stores also means that the fall line is out, so summer will be over soon. I think these olive green pants pair great with a pink tank!  I had my eye on the zumba leggings which are from their new collection but sold out so quick, so I linked to a similar pair. Thus, I ended up getting the Athleta leggings which I love! They're mid-rise and suck everything in for you! They're perfect for running.

Nike has a whole camo collection but with very different patterned colors that you wouldn't expect. Lululemon has two colors called Incognito Camo Multi Grey and Sequoia Camo Print Deep Coal Black which look pretty similar and it comes in four of their legging styles: Align Pant II  25", Align Pant Full Length 28", Wunder Under Hi-Rise Tight Full-On Luon 28", Wunder Under Crop (Hi-Rise)  Full-On Luon 21". The Align pants from lulu are my all time favorite pants, they are buttery soft but hold up when you run. Whenever I talk to people about their favorites at lulu, aligns always are mentioned. Are you camo print fan?

6 Off the beaten path places to visit in Portugal


Portugal has some of the most beautiful towns as it has hundreds of years of history with influences from the Moors. Expect to see cobblestone streets in every town, tons of castles and forts across the country, colorful tiles on building facades and scenic coastlines and rock formations. The people are very friendly and many people speak English. The cuisine is seafood based, but I enjoyed the wonderful pastries and Portuguese wine. The wine there was very cheap, $2 for a bottle in a grocery store and $2 for a glass in restaurants. Portugal is famous for its Port wine but also has several other varieties such as Vinho Verde which you can find here in Trader Joe’s.

Why You Should Visit Coimbra, Portugal


The 6th largest city in Portugal, half way between Lisbon and Porto has one of the world’s oldest universities, a UNESCO World Heritage University, established in 1290. It’s a colorful, hilly, riverside city that was the first capital of Portugal.

The Renwick’s ‘Burning Man’ Exhibit




Since the Renwick Gallery reopened in 2015, it has made itself the museum to see for instagrammable pictures and by doing so with such amazing exhibits their visitor numbers have skyrocketed! Don’t expect any paintings on the wall, this place has very interesting art exhibits that attract people who otherwise aren’t interested in art. The museum is always crowded! I love visiting to see their impressive art exhibits.

Tropical Mango Smoothie


This refreshing tropical smoothie has been on frequent rotation for me this summer. It’s sweet, delicious and refreshing! This is the type of drink you’d have poolside as it's a perfect pick you up on a hot day. I make it in the morning and take with me to work to have later as a snack.
