My Favorite New Workout: Club Pilates

I’m not a fitness person. I can hardly get myself to go to the gym! My family has never been gym or sports people because lucky for us, we’re skinny naturally. That’s why we haven’t ever cared about going to the gym until now.

I've never been much of a gym person, but lately I've been trying pilates! Click here to learn about why I love it so much.

I recently started working out in the last 2 years or so. I always thought the gym was never for me, but then I discovered classes (barre classes, boxing classes & etc.) and fell in love with them. I’m the type of person who needs a trainer or it’s hard for me to get motivated on my own.

In May, I went to my first pilates class at a studio in North Scottsdale called Club Pilates Scottsdale Promenade. I’ve always heard about pilates thanks to models who are always saying they got their hot body thanks to Pilates…now I understand why!

You’re working your legs, abs, arms, flexibility, and stretching. Even though they’re small movements, at the end of the workout, you’re sweating like a big and fat piggy. At Club Pilates, they have 3 leves: 1, 1.5 & 2. Obviously, if you’re a newbie, take level 1 or go to one of their free demo classes to make sure you like it and know how to use all of the equipment.

Last Saturday, I went to a Pilates classes with my #BloggerBabes. Gloria White co-hosted this event for us with Club Pilates, along with an incredible sponsor, Grabbangreen. This was one of the funnest workouts I’ve done in a long time. We were laughing and having a good time. Also, it was nice to see my friends after coming back from Finland.

Thank you to Mariah, manager of Club Pilates, for organizing this event and our wonderful and funny instructor, Alexis. You really made us sweat, girl!

Club Pilates is amazing. They have a lot of different locations all over the Valley and even across the country. I can see really a huge change in my body already!

It’s been 2 weeks since I came back from my trip to Finland. Life has been a rollercoaster between getting over the jetlag, looking for new job (and yes, I found one!), moving to a new apartment,  getting a lot of new design clients, meetings, and catching up with friends and family. I’ve hardly touched my laptop

Hello my petites!

What a wonderful time to be alive! So far, my vacation in Finland has been great.

My Favorite Beauty Product of the Month: Hask Argan Dry Shampoo

I didn’t know anything about dry shampoo until I moved to Phoenix. You’re not going to hear any of my Mexican friends talk about this product. We were raised to wash our hair every day, so we really don’t need it. Then when I moved here, I started to hear stories about girls that only wash their hair like
