It’s like Christmas in life when San Diego is cold.

Really though, I SOAK it in.

Every second of the coldness is just really heavenly.

Usually it starts to get chilly mid-November so the other day my girlfriend & I decided to wake up early-ish to reap the benefits of the colder time of year.

We hiked on Sunset Cliffs in Ocean Beach & caught up over a cup of cold brew coffee. It was breathtakingly beautiful. Also, the chilly-ish weather was such a difference from San Diego’s typically warmer weather.

( When you guys make a trip to SD, you have to go hike Sunset Cliffs, it won’t disappoint! ).

Anyway, if we’re being real, one of the main reasons I love colder weather is because of the clothes! YES the clothes. Cold weather clothes are just so damn chic, & to be honest, I’m a bit bored with tees, hole-y jeans, & tank tops. Been there, done that SD. So obviously any chance I get to wear something warm, I’m very much into it.

For our chilly hike I wore some black leggings, a workout Heather grey turtleneck, big sunglasses ( because I was up late the night before, whoops ), & a personalized jacket.

That’s right, my very own personalized jacket.

Basically there’s this new feature on the Eddie Bauer website that’s right up any woman’s alley. You get to literally pick out your jacket’s colors, features, prints…you even get to choose zipper colors. It’s technical in all the right way, guys. & pretty much, I had a ball designing my own jacket.

For my jacket’s details: I decided on camo accents for fun. Then I made the middle black because it flatters the waist. I decided on white for the sides because again, it flatters the waistline. Then I picked my colors for the zipper, logo, & back.

Lastly, & my favorite touch: personalization.


You can add a word or two inside the jacket. I wrote BOSSTICK. Because when I get married ( one of these days if I start planning? LOL ), that will be my new last name.

So look at me in my BOSSTICK personalized jacket. Fun, right?

Anyway, I’ll be rocking this jacket whenever the weather allows.

Does anyone else actually enjoy cold weather?

Edgy Workout Clothes by The Skinny Confidential

If I’m going to be in workout wear almost every day, at least I can mix it up with some edgy workout clothes.

Kind of obsessing over this hot pink top & matching pink leggings.


GIVEAWAY…& Let’s Talk Fitness Playlists


As you guys know I am a HUGE fan of sharing playlists with you guys!!

Ever since I created The Skinny Confidential Bombshell Body Guide, I’ve been adding walking & running to my off days. If you follow me on Snapchat you already know this though.

Pretty much, I make it my mission to hop on the Treadmill at least 4 times a week.

My walking/running routine goes like this:

30 minutes of intervals. I walk 2 minutes at 3.5 on 3.0 incline & then run 1 minute at 6.0 on 3.0 incline.

And then sometimes I just walk at a brisk 3.5 on 3.0 incline if I have too many e-mails to return. Returning e-mails on the Treadmill is my favorite thing in the WORLD, by the way. I feel so productive. I absolutely love it. Sometimes if I’m overwhelmed with a flooded inbox, I’ll walk for an hour & just return a bunch of e-mails. HEAVEN. I get off feeling like a weight is lifted off my shoulders: a sweat & a million e-mails!

So anyway, I’m either doing intervals or doing a quick walk.

BUT. I CANNOT do walk/run/fly/glide without my playlist. Like, don’t even think about me getting near a Treadmill without a playlist, k?

You guys know you can access my favorite fitness playlists via Spotify so when I heard they recently launched ‘Spotify Running,’ I nearly died.

Basically you can choose music from a wide range of genres. Some playlist examples include country, throwbacks, rap music, and so many more ( I admittedly love smooth jazz, lol ). The feature will match the music tempo to your running pace. Every beat matches every step.

Here’s why I’m obsessed: if I’m doing intervals the music goes perfectly and if I want to just walk & e-mail, the music goes perfectly.

Music can make or break a workout. The worst thing ever is if you’re sweating at the gym & some totally off country song starts to play, you know? No thanks.

On that note, Spotify & I are hosting a giveaway for YOU GUYS to inspire you to run, run, run, we’ll be giving away:
