Hello November

Hello November!

My favorite month of the year, my birthday month 😉

I think I might have overdone it this year.

But then again, I don’t believe in “overdoing” birthdays

I also don’t believe in counting Thanksgiving calories 😉 haha!

On that note, have you thought about what you are grateful for this year?

I’m grateful for a new chance to start over after taking a risk

I’m thankful for taking a risk and learning so much about myself

I’m thankful for my family and friends

I’m also thankful for comfy clothes and purple shampoo.

But let’s talk about this month’s box from Ellie

I mean, I have not taken this outfit off- it’s so freaking comfortable

And I have slept in that white shirt many nights

Once you touch it, you will understand. The material is SO SOFT!

But this month, we also got this cozy wrap that is SO versatile.

It’s so freaking soft too, and way too freaking fashionable for the gym

Like no, I’m wearing this out to brunch instead.
 And of course, this super adorable pair of leggings is also included.

SO, there you have it!

EllieActiveWear: August Box & more!

Okay-MAJOR NEWNESS going on today and a VERY exciting one, too!

As some of you ladies who follow me know, I’m an Ellie Active Wear girl fan!

I love their monthly box subscription and how they never cheat you with lame stuff you’ll never wear

They’re bomb!

But I also understand that not everyone can afford the $49.95 a month for the five items

So, why am I smiling?

I’m smiling because starting this month of August, Ellie is now offering a THREE package subscription!

You heard it right! THREE.

What this means is you get the leggings, crop top and shirt.

But not (example on this month’s box: Toning band and core discs)

And instead of paying $49.95, your subscription will go down to $39.95!

For my fitness girls that are not big on working out at home, this might fit your lifestyle better!

P.S. This is for existing or new subscribers.

Oh and by the way, this month’s outfit kind of rocks. I’ll take the white BMW, too. THX!!

But real talk- I never felt so out of shape.

School and work has been taking up all my time. I was talking to my girlfriend today who’s also a blogger

And she gave me a few tips on how to organize my life better

Long story short, I’m buying a planner from Amazon after writing this post

LOL!

P.S. This is the shirt that comes with the crop top and leggings this month.

It kind of opens a bit in the back, so you can show off your booty LOL

I secretly wanted this style for a while but I’m too lazy to actually search for it nowadays, let alone go to the mall

So YAY to Ellie for making my day today!

So if you’ve been on the fence, CLICK HERE to find what package works best for YOU.

I personally love my ab roller, toning band, and core discs. Mainly, because my workouts will be mostly at home

My gym days will be rare with the little time I’ll have

With that being said, stay tuned for my home workouts on my Instagram page 🙂

Filming them will keep me accountable and hopefully get you guys inspired to try something new.

I’ll start posting once a week!

Hope you ladies enjoyed the news this week! 😉

Transparency: Discover your RAW self again!

Look at me smiling from the inside out in the picture above

And ask yourself, “When was the last time I truly felt deep/meaningful happiness?”

Like the type that you almost feel like you want to cry from finally arriving to that state of mind

_____________________

Today, I want to share a little more about me with you

And I want to thank Ellie Active Wear for actually giving me the inspiration to do so.

A few days ago, I was going back and forth with the representative of Ellie

You know, we were talking details, such as when my box will arrive and what to expect (stay tuned for more deetz)

And the representative was telling me every detail because they pride on TRANSPARENCY

They want their clients to KNOW what they are getting

And not hide any changes or details that might surprise them

I thought that was very cool and this week, it just so happens “transparency” came up a lot

I don’t know if it was just because that word was already on my mind about Ellie Active Wear

Or if it was pure coincidence!

But I had back to back meetings this week

On Monday, I met my new boss and he used that word pretty often when describing his way of managing

On Tuesday (yesterday), I had an all day meeting in Boston with the top leadership team

And again, that word came up a lot

And it got me to thinking, “How TRUE to myself am I everyday?

How authentic am I being around my colleagues, friends, family, clients?

And, “Is that adding or removing stress from my day-to-day life?”

When you’re not being your authentic self, you are not fooling anyone but yourself

The joke is really on you

Why? Because you’re the one suffering. You’re the one stressing and you don’t even realize why

You don’t recognize the cause because you’ve been acting for so long!

We were brought up to believe we have to act a certain way to please people around us

We have to say, look, and act a certain way to be loved, to FEEL loved

We get caught up in what Miguel Ruiz from “The Four Agreements” would say, in our own “hell”

Yes, those are harsh words to describe where MOST of us are living today

(I don’t care how much money you have, how successful you are. Your mansion isn’t bringing you true happiness)

Think about the last time you didn’t care ONCE in an entire day of what someone thought of you?

Man, I don’t even think I can say I lived a day without worrying about it at least once

And that’s after being AWARE of my own “HELL”

You LIVE to please others and forget to please yourself.

And the sickening part is we think that’s normal!

_________________

After reading “The Four Agreements”, it brought a lot of things to light for me

Its made me more aware of my day-to-day actions that led to unhappiness

And it is molding me back to my five-year old self

Remember when you were five?

Did you care what anyone thought?

You were FREE, genuinely happy, didn’t listen to other’s opinions of you because you believed in your own

You were your true AUTHENTIC self

I know what you are thinking

“Talita, I was five. I didn’t have a job or a single worry in the World. How can I come to that same happiness now?”

WELL, Mr. or Ms. reader, you are absolutely right!

Life today versus life when you and I were 5 has DRASTICALLY changed

However, that happiness and being authentic to self is still very much attainable!

I am living proof that my happiness rate has RAISED to a different level after I understood “The Four Agreements

Don’t believe me?

Please pick up the book and read it

Find out more about this small tease I just wrote

I want you to understand why life is so difficult for you today

And how you CAN turn it around by simply changing FOUR things.
