How To: Arm Party!

How To Arm Party www.shannongillilan.blogspot.com

Do you know about Arm Parties?  I LOVE this trend!  It's all about stacking bracelets...so cute!

So, how do you make your own arm party?

I have some bracelets I wear pretty much every day.  Then I mix in others to go with my outfit for the day.  I have some gold and some silver bracelets too.  I typically wear one or the other, but once in a while I'll mix them together.

Sharing MY Story

My Story Beachbody Health Fitness www.shannongillilan.blogspot.com
I want to share a little bit with you all about why I started this health and fitness journey with you, in hopes that it relates to someone else and I can help them work on creating the best version of themselves.

A few months ago, I was working a retail job in a mall. I was working crazy hours and drinking coffee and soda and eating food from the food court almost daily. My body got to the point where it just couldn't take it anymore and I was feeling miserable ALL the time. Before taking the next step to see a doctor, I decided to make some changes on my own to see if it helped. I stopped drinking soda and coffees full of added ingredients and changed my diet to eating clean and healthy foods.  I also started a workout routine again.  Not spending hours in a gym, but just 30 minutes a day at home on my time. I noticed a change almost immediately!

Stitch Fix!

Have you ever heard of Stitch Fix before?  It's a subscription service for clothing!!  You can set up your fix whenever you want, it doesn't have to be monthly.  You pay a $20 styling fee and they ship you five items to try out.  You keep what you love and send anything else back in the bag provided within three days.  The $20 styling few goes towards what you keep and there is a discount if you buy your entire Fix!

When you first sign up, you create your style profile.  So, you choose pictures of outfits you like the most, prices your comfortable with, and what types of pieces you would like to see.  I've chosen the moderate price range and am open to receiving any types of items in my shipment.  If you didn't want any dresses though, you could choose that, for example.

I got my fourth Fix yesterday and wanted to share what I got with you!

4th of July Weekend: Orlando

Orlando Florida Fourth of July www.shannongillilan.blogspot.com

We spent the holiday weekend in Orlando at Walt Disney World's Dolphin Resort.  We wanted to have a relaxing weekend away and stay at a hotel with great amenities.  There are several restaurants to choose from, shops, pools, and entertainment.  The Swan and Boardwalk are right next door within walking distance.
