Hey loves!!

I realize that it's already halfway through January, but I believe it's never too late to make yourself a vision board, which is exactly what I've done for 2015! I've made vision boards before for new room decor inspiration, working out,  a new job, anything that I need some inspiration for! They are super simple to make and are a fun, eye catcher when hung on a wall! 

For your 2015 vision board, gather your supplies which include magazines, scissors, glue, and a foamboard (I got mine from the dollar store & cut it in half!) & start clipping things out of the magazine that you see fit.

 

I found that I was cutting out mostly words & phrases so I went back and starting cutting out more imagery to fill in those larger blank spaces!

I highly recommend laying out the images on your board before glueing!! I ended up moving a few things around here & there and was so glad nothing was glued down yet!

Ta-Da!!! This is my completed 2015 Vision Board!! This year for me is all about working out & finally hitting my weight loss goal, saving money to buy a home (I couldn't find a photo of a house in any of my magazine, weird right?!), spending more time with my girlfriends, being outside much more including riding bikes, hiking, fishing, drinking more tea, working on my photography skills, going to some country concerts and overall just loving & enjoying my life & working on loving myself!!

 

I'm encouraging all of you to make yourself a 2015 vision board & I would looovvee to see them!! Show us your photos via Facebook.com/BlowfishShoes!! Let's make 2015 one of the best years yet!!!

Thanks for reading!!

Well I know the Holiday's are done & over with but our B.Log was not letting me log in to do any posts, buuuutttt it finally works!!!! So, here's a late post! 

I can not believe that 2014 has just flown by!! It was such a great year for us here at Blowfish Shoes and we want to thank all of our fans & customers who helped make it such an amazing year!!

We had our office Holiday Party at Tavern in Brentwood, CA! The food was to die for and the atmosphere was so lovely! We all had such a great time (some are even saying it was our best Holiday Party yet)!!

I’ve included some photos below so you can feel like you were there too!

 

AND THE BEST ONE OF ALL:

 

We hope that you all had an amazing holiday season and are back to the grind for 2015! It's going to be a great year, I can feel it!!!

Hey lovies!!

So I am the biggest bargain hunter I know! I have such a hard time spending loads of money on clothes & everyday items when I know I can go to the swap meet and get it for like half the price if not less!! This past Sunday I headed over to the Santa Fe Springs Swap Meet in sunny California to find a few specific things for my Hawaii trip (which is next Wednesday, gahhhh!!!!) I was sad I wasn’t able to find a see through wrap around skirt for my bathing suit…maybe I can just buy some fabric and make my own! I took some photos along the way to show you some of the crazy deals & crazy things being sold!!

 I could not believe how cheap they were selling shoes for!

I gave myself a budget of $60 and ended up only spending $30!! (includng admission for myself and boyfriend which was $3 total)

 I got two headbands, a pair of sunglasses, a long necklace, a maxi skirt, airwick fresheners, two bubbles (for our Spring photo shoot happeneing this week) and a hanging plant (not photographed). Overall I'd say it was a successful day at the swap meet! I mean, $27 for all of this....score!!

Hey Lovies!!

Halloween is only a few days away!!!! It is my absolute favorite holiday of all!! This year I really wanted to try and sculpt a pumpkin rather than do a basic carve, buuuttt apparently I’m not as skilled as I maybe thought I was, haha! So instead of showing you my horrible attempts, I’ll show you some photos of some very talented artists and the amazing creations they have done on pumpkins!

 

 

 

 

Yeah, I can’t get over how incredible these are either!!! Have you ever tried to sculpt a pumpkin rather then carve it?! How did yours turn out,

I’d LOVE to see your pumpkins!

Hellllo my Blowfish friends, Fall has arrived and what better way to start off a new season than with new goals to achieve. I love setting goals for myself, it always gives me something to work towards and it’s a good way to keep me motivated. My first goal for Fall is to experiment with healthy cooking! You may know from my previous posts, I’m always on a mission to get/stay fit and eat healthy.  So figuring out ways to make things I like, but make them the healthy way, is what I’m aiming for!  I just found out a cool way to make healthy, but yummy pancakes by just using a banana and eggs! Crazy right! You should try it…check out the recipe below:

Just grab a banana and two eggs:

 

Mash the Banana

 

Scramble the two eggs and a banana together

 

Cook them on a hot skillet…and Walllah!

 

I found the recipe here, such a good find!! :) 

Now we’re at my next goal….Reading! I love to read but lately I’ve been finding myself too busy to read. I know, lame excuse right?! So I’ve decided I want to make the time to read this Fall and I’ve got just the book to start…”Warrior of the Light” by Paulo Coelho. I’ve already read “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho and it’s by far my favorite book, so I’m ready to bury myself in the next one! What’s your all time favorite book?!

 

 Stretching! Yep, that’s my final goal! No but really,  I’ve been saying I want to practice yoga for a while now and I’m finally gonna do it this fall!  I’ve started by doing a little in my room a few times a night but I’m ready to find a studio and really get in it! What about you?! Are you a yogi?!

 What are you trying to acheive for Fall? 

 

Let us know!

Leslie xoxo
