leopard love

Having just worn leopard print a week ago, I think it's safe to say I'm enamoured with this animal print.  So much so that I wore the sassy pattern yesterday to run errands and today for work! This week I'll be linking up the fabulous Fashion Remix Challenge hosted by Megan & Keely!


I added my favourite brightly coloured accessories that I wore last time I was posing by the green door.





I'm also very excited to link up with Callie & Lauren for their weekly Bloggers for Health challenge.  Here are my 5 tips for living a healthier lifestyle: 

1) Cooking more, eating out less.  This is something I have really struggled with because as a veggie who doesn't like to cook my options are limited.  Tonight I took the plunge and made a delicious shepherd's pie using ground round instead of beef....mmm!

2) Drink more water! My Mum has been instilling this in my mind since I was a little girl and I think it's about time I take her advice! I usually drink a glass of water before bed and while exercising but I will make sure I'm hydrated throughout the day.

3) Take my vitamins! I recently bought one of those day of the week pill boxes for old ladies forgetful people like me.  Since I bought it I've remembered to take my pills which include a concoction of iron, vegetarian multivitamins, vitamin B and vitamin D.

4) Scheduling in at least an hour a day of 'Emily time'- time for relaxation with no commitments.  I'm the type of person who gets easily stressed and participates in a lot of extracuricular activities so by the end of the week I'm usually zonked.  Even if it's just giving myself a manicure or watching my favourite trashy reality tv show, I need daily time to unwind.

5) Keeping up my fitness schedule.  As I mentioned in my Love your Body Day post, I work out at least 4-5 hours/wk including cardio, weight and dance classes.  Regular exercise keeps my energy and serotonin levels high so I will continue to incorporate fitness into my weekly to-do lists.

  18. Love your second look! That skirt is awesome!
    This blogger health challenge sound really intriguing, I cannot FUNCTION without my 'Loren time' when I get home from work. When it doesn't get regularly scheduled I become a hot mess. The cooking more thing I should work on, right after I go out to Subway for lunch ;)

  19. 1. LOVE the scarf with the leopard. I think a lot of people shy away from mixing those types of prints, but they really shouldn't, because it's a great combination. You look wonderful!
    2. Great post on being healthy! I know I need to drink more water. I go through spurts...one week, I'm really good and drink more than I probably need to. The next week, I'm lucky if I even get 24 ozs in my system. Right now, my water bottle is MIA, so I haven't been too good as of late...

  20. Yea, glad you joined Bloggers for Health! You're so right about having "me time." I forget to give myself a break and then I end up acting crabby.

    What a pretty leopard skirt. Doesn't animal print make you feel fearless and a little wild? I love it!

  23. Both outfits are just wonderful! Leopard has honestly become one of my favorite prints. I love the bold skirt paired with the berry colored sweater - very classic.

    Also, so glad to have you linking up for Bloggers for Health! I love all your suggestions. Water and vitamins are so important to staying healthy, I know I should probably be adding more of both to my daily routine!

  25. Great looks. Both of them. You have such a gorgeous figure (sounds less creepy than nice body). You can tell you do everything that you say to stay healthy because you look that way. Your skin is gorgeous too. Oh man, I really do sound like a serial killer now.

    No joke, when I was reading your list and came across the vitamins I went, "OH yeah. I need to take my supplements today." Jumped up, took them and continued reading. So, thank you.

    xoxo,
    Tracy

One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
