SXE Fitness debuts The Sammi Sweetheart Collection

If you’ve ever watched an episode of MTV’s Jersey Shore, you’ll know who Sammi ‘Sweetheart’ Giancola is. She’s the sweet one of the bunch, and the girlfriend to Ronnie (my 2nd favorite gorilla juice head!). I was intrigued when I found out that Sammi was teaming up with SXE Fitness to create a line of fitness wear, and that intrigue turned to excitement when I got an invite to attend the debut of the line during New York Fashion Week!

I know that Sammi played soccer in college so it didn't surprise me that she went the fitness line route. The line she designed is sporty, chic and very girly. The line includes all the gym bag necessities, including sports bras, jackets, pants, capris and tops. I liked the different cuts and styles of the sports bras, she had a ton of variation. The pants had pops of colors on the pockets that were super cute. I also have my eye on a camo print jacket. 

The line is engineered with Supplex technology to help you feel dry, make you look slimmer and hide flaws. The line also contains SXE's special Booty-Lift technology in the pants for added support. It also doesn't wrinkle or shrink. 
One can tell from her onscreen time on the Jersey Shore that Sammi always like to look good, even at the gym. She was motivated by one simple question when creating this line: "Why not feel good and look good while working out?" Her goal: "design a fitness-wear line that spoke to how women want to feel when working out: stylish, sexy, comfortable and confident." I'm guilty of putting on lipgloss at the gym, so I can relate! Sammi finished her show by walking the runway herself. Nice work Sammi!

Tailgating NYC Style

You know what's better than the University of Michigan football team beating Michigan State? Watching the game with a bunch of State fans :) We sold our tickets to this game since we'd be in NYC, and opted to watch the game from the Ainsworth Park bar in NYC. This is considered a 'Michigan' bar and we had a booth on the second level. It was a great spot to watch the game, and we didn't have to worry about fighting our way to the bar for a drink or a seat. Definitely recommend this bar if you are searching for a good spot to cheer the Tigers on in the World Series!

NYC 'tailgating' necessities:
1 - University or state bar
2 - College shirt to represent
3 - Loud jewelry because you're not really tailgating, you're looking fashionable in the city
4 - Comfortable walking shoes because you probably won't get a seat
5 - Cross body purse so you can hold 2 drinks at a time!

Go Blue!

CND Shellac Black Pool & Negligee

It's been awhile since I experimented with CND Shellac layering. I wanted to paint my nails blue to support the Detroit Tigers this week in the playoffs. I did my research and found that a common CND Shellac layer is Black Pool with Negligee over top. 

It's definitely a blue! In some lights you can see the shimmer from Negligee. I love the way this turned out. CND Shellac colors never disappoint me! Check out my other CND Shellac swatches.

Go Detroit Tigers!

Future Beauty Blogger

I just have to share this picture. My niece Fiona is 4 years old and obsessed with beauty products and anything pink. She's a mini me!

She's mastered her own makeup application (specifically gloss) and loves to have her nails painted. I am constantly bribing her with lipsticks and blush. I think I have a future Lipgloss Break contributor in my family :)
