Geez, I am doing an awful job at keeping you guys updated on my training! Has it really been three weeks since my last marathon post? Where has time gone?
Today not only do I have an outfit post for you (finally!), I also have some pretty exciting news! In order to welcome the new collection of Guerlain’s iconic, flirtatious lipstick, Kiss Kiss, Perfumerias Fetiche will be giving out mini versions of this lippie...
My husband and I were so excited to attend the “Perfect Serve” dinner at Clio’s on July 29th that I anxiously left the house and completely forgot to take my camera with me (sorry, guys!).
I am obsessed with distressed, boyfriend denim shorts. I can’t help it.

Hello ladies & gentlemen, I guess you know by now that once in a while I get a serious case of wanderlust, and since in reality we are not going any place soon, my way to treat myself is to have a virtual visual holiday.
July is over and we logged just over 300 kilometers (187 miles). I had a lot of setbacks these last two weeks, and a little scare two Sundays ago actually forced me to stop my long run 8 miles short. My husband is doing incredibly well; he can run on the treadmill with a speed of 8.5 miles/hour like no one’s business. My pace has improved a lot as well. I can sustain a pace faster than my marathon pace (7.3 miles/hour) for a pretty decent distance, which makes me feel a lot more confident about reaching my goal this September.
It seems that the older I get, the more I fall in love with a relaxed, less complicated, casual and comfortable style. Soft T-shirts, distressed denim, vintage pieces, boho flats and sandals, and natural hair and makeup are just a few of my new favorite things. (I can’t tell you the last time I wore eye-shadow or eyeliner. I’m more of a lipstick kind-of-girl.)
I never told you girls, but when I decided to change my diet and become vegan there was one thing that was a total nightmare to deal with: my skin. After I gave up all animal-derived foods (especially dairy) I started breaking out like never before, in an uncontrollable, kind of embarrassing way. It was so bad that I even considered Accutane. I felt frustrated, annoyed and worried that I was perhaps doing something wrong…I mean, where was the “vegan glow” everyone talks about?
Sorry for the disappearance last week. This whole marathon training thing is really taking a physical toll on me—more so this time because the number of miles we’re logging (and our speed) have increased by quite a lot. (My calves are on fire. I’m that sore!)**
