Marc Jacobs Dream Capsule

When you start a new venture in life you start it because you want to fulfill your dreams. Starting so then they say after two years of blogging on M.A.S. fashion was quite a leap of faith. Like any dream there are sacrifices, scares, and lots of leaps of faith, but you know if you are standing behind something you love, it will all be worth it in the end. I think following your dreams is one of the bravest things you can do! The other day I was asked to participate in the Marc Jacobs Dream Cloud Lounge where I was asked to submit a dream of mine. WOW! I am not sure even they knew what kind of timing it was but the entire idea of recording your dreams made me stand there and think. While I was in the midst of creating this new site (that no one knew of at the time) I was asked to write down my dreams for the future.

For the past few months I have been quite guilty of getting wrapped up in everything I want to do and not appreciating everything I have been able to do. My entire life I have always wanted to be in control of my future and have a job I am passionate about and love waking up to do. A job that I am proud of and can stand behind. That allows me to be creative and be 100% me!  I am a huge supporter of taking a moment to tell the universe what you want in life. I really believe the moment you voice it, it has more of a possibility to come true. It is sad to say but it took the Marc Jacobs Dream Cloud Lounge to make me realize that I am living this dream of mine that I have wanted since I was little. The dream I voiced all those years ago.

While I was terrified and utterly stressed to the max about the new site and what all of you would think of it, I was forgetting to breathe and enjoy the ride. After all, I was living my ultimate dream, I just needed to be reminded of it. It took standing in that beautiful setting – with the sweet smelling Marc Jacobs Daisy perfume in the air, white benches, the greenest of grass, and perfectly aired up clouds – for me to realize I didn’t need to look any further than where I already was. Standing there asking myself, “What was my personal dream?” allowed me to see that I am already living it.

Having this epiphany made me want to ask you all, do you know what your dream is? Have you reached your dream and not acknowledged it? Are you starting a new dream? I encourage you to take the same challenge I did with Marc Jacobs Dream Capsule. I think it is easy to get caught up in what you don’t have or where else you want to go and forget that you may be living the dream you always wanted. If you need a calm or inspiring place to think about your dreams in life I recommend downloading this playlist, sitting under the sun, planting your feet soundly to the ground, and taking a moment to envision your life, goals, and dreams. I really hope you listen to me on this, as sometimes all you need is to be re-centered to what your dreams are in life!

Stripes + Red Blazer

Remember when I said I was trying to add color to my wardrobe and I was starting with red? Ya, well I have taken it to an entirely obsessive level! This J.Crew Regent blazer was my first red purchase and I have had it on repeat since the day it arrived. Who knew red went with so many different things? The fit and color of the blazer make it my go-to piece when I want to dress up an outfit. Lately, I am really guilty of throwing on jeans and a t-shirt and calling it a day. I know I need to make more of an effort to look presentable so I am starting with a blazer! They are a great way to make any basic or slouchy outfit tailored and chic. I love this style J.Crew blazer as it comes in so many different colors, but for a wider selection I recommend Nordstroms. They always have great options for the exact pieced you are looking for. For me, this Halogen is next on my list to style with boyfriend jeans and then I want this Vince Camuto to wear with a tailored black pant and loafer. tres chic!

Pure Barre Preston Hollow

I have been very open about my recent weight struggle. The hubs and I have thoroughly enjoyed our first year and a half of marriage – eating out, drinking good wine, and enjoying yummy desserts. I usually can stop myself and make myself hit the gym but this past year I have really struggled to find the motivation to work-out and to jump start this “new lifestyle.” I voiced this frustration to the universe (which I whole-heartily believe in doing) and the next morning I received an e-mail from Britta, the owner of the new Pure Barre Preston Hollow. I had been looking into pure barre for a while because it seems to really yield results (I have literally seen  my friends bodies transform) but, again, really lacked motivation to actually go forth and sign-up. And let me back up and say, once I have my mind set to doing something, I go full force and give it my all. I just need to get to the point of wanting to do it. After meeting with Britta and hearing about Pure Barre I became really excited to take on the challenge. It was the exact push I needed and I couldn’t wait to get started. So much so, I am now a brand Ambassador for Pure Barre Preston Hollow.

I am beyond excited to get started on this new adventure! I feel inspired and ready – two things I was previously lacking. I was able to see the new, and beautiful, studio yesterday and get a few pointers from Britta! My, oh my, will this be a tough but exciting new journey! I will post my progress periodically, which I am sure will be a roller coaster of a ride! Everything from frustration and soreness, to ultimately, results! I can’t wait! I hope to see you all there!
