Ponchos have become something that I love. It definitely does give an outfit an instant pop. I love how comfortable and chic they are. It was a trend that I didn't like at first, but after buying my first poncho I instantly changed my mind. They are very flattering and oh yeah did I mention comfortable?  If you haven't tried out this trend yet you should?

Fitness Wednesday: Nike Shoes

Welcome to Fitness Wednesday. It is a new series that I decided to start on my blog and am very excited about. I have been working out more lately, so I definitely got inspired to start this series. I hope you all enjoy it.
The first of the series I will be featuring Nike workout shoes. I really am needing a new pair of workout shoes and I have narrowed them down to 5. I have researched these 5 and am close to making a decision, but would love y'alls opinions as well. Finding the right pair of shoes to work out in is important. They need to be sturdy and comfortable and of course cute as well.
