August 2014 Round-Up

When I think about Summertime and those carefree days spent swimming & running around barefoot growing up, August is what I picture. It’s the epitome of Summer in my mind.

August 2014 Round-Up


August is the beginning of the transition from Summertime fashion and beauty into Fall. It’s a wonderful mixture of bright colors, moody prints, and bold silhouettes.

Not sure how to get yourself ready? Check out my tips on Fall Lip Colors, How To Wear Denim-on-Denim, and your Blazer Must Haves for this season.


Food was a big priority this month on MCLV and I chatted about Why I Eat The Way I Eat, shared some delicious Healthy Breakfast Recipes, as well as some Healthy Living Tips & Suggestions.


Staying in shape while traveling, vacationing, and enjoying lazy family time during the Summer can be a challenge. Even for me! This month I talked about How To Stay Motivated At The Gym and keep yourself reaching for those fitness goals!

New September 2014 Goals


I was thrilled to share some of my favorite local Bay Area designers in August – Alyssa Nicole & Lan Jaenicke – And September will bring even more designer updates from MCLV.

I’ll be heading to London Fashion Week with CCUOCO for their LFW debut and teaming up with Style Lend to show you the very best street style that London has to offer!


Between a trip to New York last week and my upcoming London adventure, I’ve got travel and food on the brain. Stay tuned to see what snacks & ready-to-eat foods I pack in my suitcase when I travel and how I stay on top of my health & fitness goals while I’m on the road.


Not only did I get my booty kicked by two more aerial yoga classes this month, but I also tried BodyFi for the first time. I’ve always preferred solitary workouts but I’ve been loving all the classes I’ve tried this year.

Perhaps I’m turning over a new leaf? 🙂

2014 Bucket List:

  1. Try a new class/physical activity – This month’s new workout adventure was BodyFi. Crosstraining at its finest! 🙂 Stay tuned for a review.
  2. Publish my writing – I was excited to publish pieces for Fashion Xchange Magazine and GEV Magazine this month.
  3. Travel – Checked off trip number two to New York for 2014! It never gets old…
  4. Broaden my educational horizons – I’ve been having trouble sleeping lately {you can check out more on my struggles with insomnia here} so this month I was all about stress reduction & sleep education. I read Say Goodnight To Insomnia and Lights Out: Sleep, Sugar & Survival.
  5. Prioritize friendship – This month my best friend from Junior High & High School got married in a beautiful, funny, moving ceremony followed by a ridiculously fun party. Such an amazing trip!
