Hi guys! This edition of CNC Instagram Live is from September 19th, and I received a great group of questions from you guys for it – thank you for sending! I love having a running list and hearing what kinds of topics you guys are interested in hearing about, so keep ’em coming! Ok, into the questions we go! 1. Is fasted cardio ok for women, specifically 20-25 minutes of interval sprints? My answer: it depends!…

Hi, friends! I’m hitting publish on this post a little early this week, so I guess it’s technically the “Thursday 5,” right? It’s actually a special edition of the Friday 5 (uh, Thursday 5) since it focuses on affordable fleece pullovers. (Yes, I’m obsessed!) You might remember my (intense) love for this cozy fleece, which I can’t wait to wear as soon as the temperatures really start to cool down. It’s hanging in our hall…

Hey guys! I recently picked up some new pieces for fall from Amazon (they just make it so easy!), and it seemed like you guys really liked my fashion finds under $20, so I wanted to do another one. Similarly, everything I purchased this time was super affordable. I mean, who doesn’t like affordable Fall fashion finds from Amazon, right? All of the tops mentioned below are within the $20 range and really good quality….

Hi, guys! So, I did a little shopping on Amazon the other day. I don’t know if you have stumbled onto the world of Amazon Fashion, but everything is soooo affordable and so cute. I recently bought a bunch of different items, so I thought I’d do a little show-and-tell for you guys. It seems like you’re really into these affordable fashion finds since I’ve gotten so many comments and questions about them lately. One…

I saw this quote the other day, and it really resonated with me: “The comeback is always stronger than the setback.” I know we’ve all had highs and low with regard to our fitness journey, so I wanted to share some of mine that immediately come to mind. My lowest fitness lows: Barely recovered from a flare, I decide it’s a good idea to run a half marathon. I pretty much crawl over the finish…

A few weeks ago, Mal surprised me with a special gift that, according to him, was just “so Tina.” Apparently, he saw the Tokyo Tote on the Bellroy website (he’s already a huge fan of the brand) and decided that I just needed to have it in my life. I love a good tote bag and know you guys do too, so I wanted to share this Bellroy Tokyo Tote review. Rewind to 2014 when…

While this was a sponsored opportunity from Lucky Brand, all content and opinions expressed here are my own.  I can’t believe we’re already halfway through winter. I feel like we just had our first snowfall, but now the days are getting longer again and I’m already thinking about warm, sunny days. With the end of winter…

Good morning! I have another fashion post for you guys! This one is especially fun because it’s all about seriously affordable finds. Forever 21 recently sent me a gift card to try out a few items from their website, and I’m so happy with what I selected, I just had to share them with you guys. I mean, skinny jeans (pictured below) for $7.90? You can’t do better than that! (FYI: They’re the Classic Solid Skinny…

Hey, hey! I wanted to share my recent Stitch Fix with you guys because I loved everything that I received. I swear my “Fixes” just get better and better! My stylist has really gotten to know me, and I often leave feedback on the items I receive, so she’s really nailing it lately! (Never heard to Stitch Fix? Check out my first review!) This sweater… totally obsessed. The second I saw it, I knew it was…

This post is sponsored by LE TOTE. Ok, guys, here we go. I’m going to attempt this whole fashion blogger thing. Pugs are a great photo shoot “accessory,” right? Don’t I just scream “fashion blogger”? Murphy’s face kills me in the photo below. Haha! You guys know I have zero fashion sense, but I enjoy dressing well and looking good, which is why I love online clothing services so much. They take the guesswork/hassle/wasted money out of…

Spring outfit inspiration! Sharing a few of my favorite outfits you can piece together with a few clothing staples you probably already have on hand.  Even though the weather outside is frightful, I can’t help but think about warm weather, sunshine, margaritas (who said that?), and fun spring clothes. As you probably know/have observed from reading CNC, I have the worst sense of style. I’m totally happy wearing workout clothes with sneakers or jeans and…
