• What I’m Loving Lately XXII

    November 26, 2014

    Hi, friends!

    I can’t believe Thanksgiving is TOMORROW! I feel November has totally flown by. Wasn’t it just November 1st? It sure feels like it. And with Turkey Day being so late in the month, the holiday season is really going to whiz by. Can you believe there’s only three weekends until Christmas? I need to get going on decorating, shopping… everything!

    Anyway, here’s the next edition of What I’m Loving Lately and happy Thanksgiving!!

    Lululemon Run With Me Neck Warmer – With marathon training officially starting at the New Year, I am already looking ahead and making a wish list for warm running gear. This neck warmer is a MUST for winter runs in New England. I’m also digging the Race Your Pace 1/2 Zip and Speed Tight II.

    Homemade eggnog lattes - Totally loving them lately. I make mine with a shot of espresso (I have a Nespresso machine, which is THE BOMB. I love it so much) + SO Delicious Nog Coconut Milk + a sprinkle of cinnamon. Mmm! Delicious.
