Friday Faves

Hi! Hope you’re having a very happy Friday! Keep those giveaway entries coming! I’m excited to pick the first round of winners tomorrow.

In typical Friday fashion, here are some faves from the week and around the web. I always love to hear about what you’re enjoying, too, so please feel free to shout out in the comments. <3 

Cake pop

Succulent thing

Christmas decorations are almost up! Half of them are still missing -they’ll probably show up somewhere random… when we move again- but I’m excited to have some holiday spirit in the house. The giant inflatable snowman has been locked up for far too long.


Packing up the Kale Yeah shirts! The rest of the international orders should be out by today, and everything will officially be on the way!! 


Kale yeah  1 of 1

(The post office is like “Oh, it’s you again.”)

Lots of late-night packing fun: 

Shirt stuff

(Towards the end of packing, I grabbed the Sharpie and wrote random little notes on the cards. Surprise if you got one! There’s a Gin-gin or chocolate in the bag, too.)

Livi’s rain boots and her grouchy hedgehog shirt. 😉

Rain boots

Wild salmon:

    I’m excited for…the cool whether this weekend? I’m at a point in my life where I’m searching for something to wake up and look forward to to drive my day, you know?

    • Fitnessista on December 5, 2014 at 5:09 pm

      is there anyone you can talk to about how you’re feeling?

      • Linda @ the Fitty on December 5, 2014 at 6:30 pm

        I’m sure I can talk to anybody, but the change has to come from within myself and I’m searching for that.

  5. Lauren @ The Bikini Experiment on December 5, 2014 at 6:27 pm

    The shirts turned out so well! I am looking forward to a little baking and hopefully The Hunger Games. Enjoy your weekend, Gina!

    Just went to holly dazzle with my roommate from college (CNU)
    It was awesome to see her and the fireworks!!!

    I want that salmon!!! Looks so damn good! And you and Livi are adorable! Those tees came out great! This week I”m loving Nars blush–the best! I’ve been searching high and low for a good blush for my skin and finally found something. Took forever! Cozy sweatshirt tunics; cotton leggings; and vanilla lip balm. I eat it off my lips. What new fitness class are you trying out? You got me curious! Also–are you still teaching barre? You haven’t been mentioning it on the blog for awhile–so was just curious.
    Have a great weekend lovely!! XOXO

    • Fitnessista on December 5, 2014 at 9:46 pm

      i’m going to try a core40 class and really excited about it! and yes, still teaching barre; taught 2 last night 🙂
      have a great weekend!

    Hi Gina! Happy Friday. I’m teaching a couple of Les Mills classes and going to a White Elephant gift exchange party hosted by friends. Hoping to wear a festive dress and enjoy the Christmas season! 🙂 Have a good one!

    Hi Gina,

    Number one looking forward to the delivery of your kale yeh shirts, hope it can make to Australia before Christmas I’m giving it to my sister as a present and I can’t wait to see her face when she opens it.
    I was looking forward to and already participated in a les mills body balance class in the city with my sister. It rocked!! The rest of the weekend I’m looking forward to relaxing and prepping for the week ahead.
    Hope you have a good weekend.

    This weekend I’m looking forward to a relaxing weekend with a lot of fun in Geneva. It’s the biggest weekend of the year with over 30,000 runners celebrating Geneva’s independence! Hot chocolate, mulled wine and running for the win!
