March 2014 Round-Up

March was a fun-filled, hectic, amazing adventure.

This month I headed to New York for a fashion trip and killer shoot with Studio 15 NYC, before venturing down the coast of California to Capitola for a relaxing beach-side family weekend, after which I spent a fabulous three days in New Orleans. And now I’m gearing up for a jaunt to Los Angeles in a few days for Lucky Magazine’s Lucky FABB Conference.

Just writing about all of my adventures this month is a bit exhausting.

March 2014 Round-Up

Fashion:

March was all about getting ready for Spring – From checking out all the fabulous new hairstyles & updos & beauty, skin care & make-up to freshen up my look to Spring cleaning & home décor updates to falling in love with Spring 2014 fashion and trends like jumpsuits & rompers.

I mixed things up on the style front between flights as well. This month I wore everything from evening-ready faux leather leggings to a killer cobalt blue bodycon dress to a black & white printed pencil skirt.

I even had the honor of collaborating with the chic New York online dress boutique Studio 15 NYC for a fun series – You can check out the first post here.

Food:

March saw something exciting for me on the food front – My very first food photo shoot. Working with Jessica Michelle Photo we captured a healthy, delicious brunch spread. The first dish that I wrote about was one of my personal favorites – Cracking Cauliflower. I can’t wait to share the rest – Including some sinfully delicious desserts you’ll love!

Fitness:

Despite a crazy travel schedule I did a great job of staying on top of fitness this month. While yoga, sadly, fell to the wayside, I manages to consistently get to the gym, walk, and even got in a few short runs.

New April 2014 Goals

Fashion:

Since March was so go-go-go I’m looking forward to spending some more time in San Francisco during April. After a fabulous, fashion-filled weekend in LA for Lucky FABB of course! 🙂 Stay tuned for some fun collaborations with local San Francisco brands & stores this month – I’ll be posting sneak peeks on Instagram so be sure to follow MCLV there!

Food:

While I’m looking forward to sleeping in my own cozy bed this month, I’m even more excited to get busy in my kitchen! I’ll be cooking up a storm and sharing the fruits of my labors so keep an eye out for some tasty recipes & sweet treats to use up all of this gorgeous Spring produce that’s hitting stores and farmers markets right now.

Fitness:

Gym time is great but getting back into my favorite yoga studio on a more regular basis is going to make April positively blissful. I’ve talked about it before {Motivation & Midday Workouts} but planning your workouts and fitness routine in advance can really help you stick to your goals. I’ve already blocked off two days a week for yoga for the month of April!

2014 Bucket List:

  1. Try a new class/physical activity – During my sojourn in Capitola this month I did a few hours of ocean kayaking. Not only was it quite the workout, but it was a gorgeous, relaxing experience. Definitely need a repeat stat!
  2. Publish my writing – At the urging of a friend I took a small step this month and joined a writers forum. Next step – Post something!
  3. Travel – Check!!
  4. Broaden my educational horizons – With all my travel time I’ve gone through more books that I can remember, I’ll be sharing some of my favorites soon. And once I settle back into a slightly less hectic routine I’ll be signing up for a nutrition class taught by one of my favorite vegan authors.
  5. Be a good friend – I headed to NOLA for my high school best friend’s bachelor party this month. It was an amazing trip – Great group of people, much-needed fun & frivolity, delicious food, amazing sites, and some really relaxing and educational time spent wandering around the beautiful city.

Did YOU accomplish anything you’re especially proud of this month?
