Terrific Tuesday Post 008

Hello my lovelies, in this Terrific Tuesday post, I have something awesome to share with you. We all may have gained some unwanted pounds over the holidays, and those New Year's resolutions may have dissolved with our resolve. But what if there was a way for you to lose wait and provide meals for people in need, would you want to do it?


Of course, you would! Here are the details, I was watching the Today Show, and my favorite actor/comedian Joel McHale was on talking about a new project he is partnered with, fitbit, FitForFood, where they have partnered with Feeding America. If you sign up with FitForFood, any calories that you burn towards being active will count towards meals for feeding needy people in America. They hope to provide 1.5 million meals to those in need.

You have a chance to do something good for yourself, as well as giving back to someone else, who knew losing weight could feel so great!




Sign up now! It all begins February 3rd, 2015 FITBIT Sign Up & Website


Check out the fitbit fitforfood video on YouTube now! 











Hugs,

Products I heart Pleated Layer Top



In this edition of Products I heart, I am in love with this cute pleated layer top available at the Look Book Store. They
have so many cute items, and they are also very affordable. If you click on the blouse, you will be directly taken to
the store.


I love this item because you can dress it up or you can dress it down. A beautiful pencil skirt, with your best high heels, or for a night on the town, pair it with your darkest and cutest denim jeans. Either way, you will be the talk of the town! Anytime, you wear this blouse  it will put emphasis on the smallest part of your waist line which will make you look even slimmer.


Spring is on the way soon, so this would definitely be a great pick  for your wardrobe needs!


Don't forget if you find something you absolutely love be sure to leave a comment on Pinterest, Instagram Twitter, or here on the blog!

Hugs,

Frederica

How It Was Styled- Winter Edition

Hello everyone, in this edition of How It Was Styled, this post is all about looking your best during the frigid temperatures, although when there is a blizzard on the way, like the one on the way for people on the North East Coast, it doesn't matter much. Luckily for me, Chicago is not currently on the path of the blizzard, and I am not really a fan of Winter, but I wanted to show you how I styled my new coat and cute boots.



There has not been a lot of snow yet for us, but I bet by the time I write this post, there will be mountains of it coming our way too! I am even hoping the groundhog won't see his or her shadow on February 2, 2015 meaning we get the dreaded 6 more weeks of Winter. What can you do but grin and bear it, right?

I have been on the hunt for some really warm and cute coats, I have yet to buy a new coat in about 3 years, of course I had to inform my husband of this and he bought 3 of them for me at Christmas time. I guess not going coat shopping in 3 years can be a good thing! It doesn't hurt to have a caring husband either. In this post, I am wearing my Michael Kors Coat with  faux fur hood, and boot socks rolled down as regular socks. If you have boot socks, don't be afraid to make them look like regular socks and use those to accentuate your outfit.

I also am wearing a brightly colored tank, with my Forever 21 Blazer, that I have had at least 3 years, did I mention, I am in need of new blazers also, we'll save that for a future post. I am a needs shopper vs. a wants shopper, so you won't really find me shopping a lot unless it's a need. Sometimes I do need and want, that can get a little tricky at times. If you find yourself in that same situation, be sure that there is  nothing you already have sitting around in your closet, that you could be getting plenty of wear out of it. I can't tell you how important it is to have basic tees & basic tanks in your closet, as the temperatures go down to single digits, they are great for layering over blazers, sweaters, sweatshirts, or anything else you can think of to stay warm!

I am including pictures from my style details in this post, as well as my new red coat, which I am hoping to wear soon!

Hugs,
