My OOTN For My Friend Erika’s Surprise Bday Party

Seeing as the weather is getting a little chilly even for Los Angeles, I wanted to wear something cute and trendy for my friend’s party without being freezing cold. I also decided to give my hair a break from my protective hair style and decided to wrap it up in bright yellow pashima turban. I got my ENYCE Sweatshirt on closeout for super cheap, Sonsee Footless Tights in 100 Denier Black, Skirt by Brat Star, and my sexy red shoes are by Sam Edelman.

This look not only kept me warm but I fashionable! ❀

My Time At The Lola Getts SoulCycle Event

I was invited to attend Lola Getts event at SoulCycle in Beverly Hills this past Sunday. I was so excited and had no idea, I was truly in for a real treat! As I walked into SoulCycle, I was greeted by Stacey Goldstein owner of Lola Getts Active wear and given a super cute tank to put on. There was a buzz about the studio as people were getting ready for the spin class to begin. The welcome I received by the staff at SoulCycle was so warm and helpful. I put on my Lola Getts tank and leggings, snapped on my cycle shoes and entered the spin studio. With dimmed lights, I found a cycle and snuggled in. I honestly, didn’t know what to expect as this was my first time doing a spin class. Our class instructor Lisa Moloshok, came out of the gate with inspiration! As we started to cycle and I felt the burn in my legs, with closed eyes in a meditative state, I began my 45 minute SoulCycle journey. Let me tell you, the class was far from easy. However, I was given a chance to be authentic with myself. The more I pushed myself, tears came to my eyes as I thought about the fibromyalgia diagnosis I was given in 2013 and how fibromyalgia is no longer my story. I focused on how I want to show up in the world. Then it came to me and I started chanting I AM BEAUTIFULLY HUMAN, I AM ENOUGH, I MATTER, I AM WORTHY over and over again. A smile appear through the tears and I had a serious breakthrough! Before I knew it, I had cycled without stopping an entire 45 minutes, completely drenched in sweat with my blood pumping; I had conquer my fear went all the way and accomplished an intense workout, doctors said I’d never be able to do again! A special thanks goes out to Lola Getts, Stacey Goldstein, Lisa Moloshok, and SoulCycle for this experience. SoulCycle’s spin class changed my life. I look forward to continuing my journey to being fit and healthy. And against the odds of what society and medicine’s belief, which say as a curvy plus sized woman I can’t do it!
