Here are the details on my bohemian dress which I have purchased at H&M. I love this look because you can make it look elegant and yet, so simple. Black and white is always a good idea. 

I added a flower crown head piece and some sliver accessories. Also, adding a turquoise bracelet to give it that pop of color. I hope you enjoy how I have styled this look and this past weekend with the same dress. Ciao for now. Xxo.

Hat Kinda Day

Sundazzed! Well weekend is over and back to the grind. Today was one of those lazy days were you just don't wanna do anything. What I mean is effortless styling and in the hair department haha. That is why putting a hat on completes my outfit of the day (ootd). I really did not want to do my hair, so I wore a grey suede hat to hide this mane. 
Hats make a great accessories to complete casual outfits and/or revamp your look. My husband as well decided not to use product in his hair, so he put a hat on it. If you are looking for a hat I recommend Forever21.com. They have many styles and selections. Hope you all enjoy the rest of your evening. Ciao for now! Xxoxo.

Grind Time

Hello dolls!

New week means lets get to grinding. Pushing yourself to the limit feels great. See what your body is capable of doing. A workout to get this week started is always a good idea, so I'm putting together some reps I did for my workout today.

On today's fashionable accessories lol I used a squat bar (add weight if you'd like) mixed it up with a stepper and free weights (10lbs). 
A great fun effective cardio, Leg and glute strength and conditioning workout. 

•Started off, 2mile run. 

•Squats w/ bar 1min (3x) 30 second rest break between 1 minute rounds. 

•Step: Step up, bring knee up passed hips, alternate steps. 1min (3x) 30 second rest in between. 

•Step: Plank on elbows, back straight, while planking alternate straight up leg kicks passed head level.   

Very basic routine today but effective with consistency. Ciao for now.

Cool for the Summer

Can the heat be over? Does anybody else agree? I guess we should not complain because it can be worse. SoCal truly has the best weather year around. Although, experiencing some real seasons like the East Coast would be nice.

This last weekend was brutally hot again, so kept it fresh and minimalistic. I love this look because it's simple and can definitely dress it up or down.
•Simple Basic Shirt (found just about anywhere) 
•Skirt: H.I.P. Brand (Nordstroms Rack)
• Sandals: Sam Edelman Gladiator 
•Purse: Rebeeca Minkoff Coral

Found a similar skirt on Forever21 link below. It is more fitted but can also we dressed down for this look. Tag me on IG @lyfewithmad would love to see who can do a similar look. Ciao for now.

San Francisco Getaway

Can we stay on vacation forever? These past few days have been relaxing and making memories yet again with my grand husband of mine. He planned and surprised me with a getaway to San Francisco "the city by the bay." We arrived Friday evening enjoying the city and heading out to paint the night. This is the view we had that evening. 

Yes, it is alittle vacay but early bird catching the worm they say, so we started our Saturday bright and early. Transportation in San Fran is best by walking, renting a bike, or Bart. We rented bikes to ride up and go over the Golden Gate Bridge. It is a very tough ride but the view is amazing.

Went over the Golden Gate Bridge heading straight to the next city Sausalito. It is a small city with more delicious places for foodies. We had lunch at Napa Valley Burger Company.
It would be crazy to ride our bikes back to the city because we would be going uphill so we just took the ferry back. What I love about San Fran is just about anywhere you eat it is delicious. When we are traveling or even in our city, trying new eats is our thing. That following evening went to watch UFC 191 at local bar Rumors had some delicious tacos and wings. There are many restaurants so I would definitely recommend using Yelp for extra help on reviews, and what type of food you would like to try. By the end of this amazing trip all I have to say is thank you to my hubby for taking me to a spontaneous last minute trip to San Franny.
