Pinspiration and a giveaway

Hi friends! It’s Gina 🙂 Lately, the Fashion page has been filled with posts from one of my favorite girls (and future sis-in-law), Meg. The plan was always to have her eventually take over the fashion page, since she has an amazing sense of personal style, but it wasn’t possible with her school schedule. Well, she took her last class yesterday and is graduating next weekend! Soooooooo, little Meg will be writing a majority of the posts over here from now on- I’ll be more of a guest poster on the Fashion page and will occasionally update with hairstyle tricks or fun things I find. shopping

The blog is always changing and evolving, and this is the next step over here on the Fashion page. It’s been a little stale over here since I became pregnant shortly after starting this page and wore lululemon most of this past year. Meg has a lot of amazing ideas and I really hope you guys enjoy reading her posts as much as I do 🙂

Meg will have her own section on the About page when the blog re-vamp is live, but you can also check out her other blogs: WithaSentimentalHeart and TyingtheNott.




As I mentioned in my last post, I’m pretty obsessed with Pinterest. Not only does it help to pass the time when you’re bored (or in class..heh), I draw a lot of style inspiration from people’s pins. I put together a board of my favorite summer styles and beauty products that I wanted to share it with all of you beautiful Fitnessista readers. Something spectacular about Pinterest: you can click on most of the pictures and they are linked to the websites that sell the items…helloooo easy online shopping!

must haves

If you have a Pinterest, link me to your summer inspiration board for a chance to win a $5 Starbucks gift card! Some of you may know that I’m a barista, so naturally I’d love to give you some coffee 😉 Good luck!


ps: I’d like to know what kind of fashion posts you all would love to see. Email me with any suggestions:

    Meg has an awesome fashion sense!

  3. Elizabeth @ reads recipes runs on May 2, 2012 at 6:15 pm

    how fun! I love Pinterest!

    Some fashion posts I’d love to see: I am HORRIBLE at throwing things together that I already have, I have set outfits and very rarely mix and match but I LOVE seeing other people mixing and matching patterns and colors and that kind of stuff.

    Also, I’m on a budget so maybe what kind of items to invest in and what kind to save on?

  4. Jeana on May 2, 2012 at 6:16 pm

    I love all of Meg’s blogs so I am excited to see this happening. I am transitioning my wardrobe from newish age to more classic and vintage, wish me luck!

  5. Brittany on May 2, 2012 at 6:24 pm

    I am so excited that you are taking over the fashion page Meg! I love your style and I think about your style whenever I am shopping (or browsing the online stores!). I am really starting to put together my personal style (I am 17) so I take a lot of your advice.

  8. Britt on May 2, 2012 at 7:01 pm

    This is super exciting I’ve been reading Megan’s blog since you linked to her a while ago! I love seeing her vintage finds because I feel like its sort of impossible, like finding treasure ! Haha

    I don’t have a pinterest but I am a Starbucks addict 🙂 i like in Florida so it will be a super super hot summer and I,ll be living in bright colored shorts and loose flowy tank tops because I still have baby weight to lose 🙂 I kind of want some longish pleated skirts too now !

  9. Patti @ This Starts Tonight on May 2, 2012 at 7:04 pm

    I’m playing a frontierswoman in an outdoor drama this summer. I will be living outside in a cabin in the heat! My summer essentials are all about staying cool and not getting crispy during rehearsals! 😀

  10. Casey on May 2, 2012 at 7:06 pm

  29. Katherine on May 4, 2012 at 10:29 pm

    Hi Meg! It’s great to have your input around here. Your help keep fitnessista my one stop blog.
    Here’s my summer board. Clearly I’m a simple being and attracted to super brights.

  30. Haley @ Fit, Young, and Fabulous on May 5, 2012 at 10:04 pm

    Summery dresses are my favorite!

  31. kaite on May 6, 2012 at 12:52 am

    Well boo! Meg’s cute but I prefer your style SO much more. Her’s more hippie and thrifty (nothing wrong with it but just not what I’m interested in). I hope you do a TON of guest posts. I was waiting for you to have livi and then get back to doing these fashion posts 🙁

    • Fitnessista on May 6, 2012 at 1:07 am

      I’ll still be over here 🙂 I think Meg has more to offer as far as unique style goes -I’m a mall girl- but will definitely post fun things that I find

  32. Grace (Graceful Eats) on May 8, 2012 at 1:09 am

    I love both of y’all’s posts! I think it’s great that Meg’s in the mix – now there’s two different perspectives, and you can focus on Livi and fitness. 🙂

    Thanks so much for the posts, Meg! They’re super cute! I’m looking forward to wearing breezy summer dresses once I get my head out of these books for finals. 😛
