Hello World!

This is my first posting and if you are reading this that means you’re a young woman (or a man – who knows! =)) that enjoys great fashion, awesome food, fun photography, and have an undying love affair with Anthropologie.

I got engaged to my wonderful boyfriend Chris about a year ago. And a little bit before that, I started to evaluate my physical health and how I truly felt about myself. I decided I wanted to be in better shape on the inside, so Chris and I started trying out different exercise regimes. Now more than a year into it, I am in the best shape of my life and enjoying it! My wedding is going to be on August 28th of this year, and I can definitely already feel the excitement! Part of this blog will be focused on that I’m sure as I’d love to share with you the rest of my planning process.

I also love to cook and love to eat (hence the needing to work out thing). Call me crazy, but cooking for me after a tiring, repetitive day of work relaxes me. I focus on easy to prepare simple foods rather than difficult foo foo cuisine. So if you see something that looks good in this blog, feel free to email me and I will be more than happy to provide you with the recipe.

Photography is something I fell in love with after I met Chris. He’s an artsy accounting auditor which I didn’t think existed but apparently they do! I’m currently not very good at it but have invested in a great Canon 7D to start perfecting this skill. I will definitely be sharing with ya’ll some great pics if I get the chance to catch some.

Now onto my ultimate love, err rather my ultimate love behind Chris, ANTHROPOLOGIE!!! I only started to fall in love with this store recently. My style has always been clean and simple. I paired at most two colors together and they were usually gray and black. I’d throw in some color, maybe a red, on daring days. But since I’ve improved my physical health, I started to notice how comfortable I felt in clothes. I started to mix and match certain things and it was actually fun! I’m still learning though and I’m sure there will be days where you’ll think “Cindi, that totally does not work!” So, please feel free to provide me with suggestions!

Welp, here’s what I’m wearing today. No Anthro items but I really wanted to try this new cardigan out.

Here's the shoes I'm wearing today. I'm in love with them and wanna just lick them! They remind me candy!
