Nerd Boyfriend

My Ultimate guilty pleasure is the blog Nerd Boyfriend.
It's a style blog for guys but how can a fashion gal not be concerned about
what her man wears. 
This blog is the most genius blog I have scene in a while. I keep coming back to find out what awesome vintage photo this person has found and where to get the stuff.
I saw this Beatles photo on itunes then skipped over to Nerd and low and behold Nerd has it up with the links for find your very own George, Paul, John and Ringo look.

Just hop on over and skim through the site to see what Nerd Boyfriend has going on for your man, you won't be sorry.

Hitting the Bar

Since I am totally addicted and I now have Camilla on board too, I felt the need to share my most biggest addiction with all of you. It's not the newest bag or shoe because to me it's way, way better. It's called The Bar Method and I have been hitting the Bar at the least three times a week for the last year and a half. This is the most challenging workout ever and it totally transforms your body because the better you get with your form the harder it gets. I finally brought Camilla this summer after constant prodding from me to go and coming home after each class expressing how hard of a workout it was. She didn't believe me until she started the class. Camilla is a cross country runner and worked out every day except Sunday with her team, so she thought it sounded easy. The first time I brought her she struggled through the class like everyone does their first time and left without much thought of coming back. That was until she woke the next morning with her muscles more sore than ever before. She decided to come back and now she's as big of a believer as I am in what The Bar Method can do for your body. 
 This is a ballet conditioning inspired workout but you won't be dancing around the studio remembering the days of ballet classes from your youth. You will be challenged and breathing hard all the while your legs will shake and you will wonder why the heck your here putting yourself through this torture until you finish the class and walk out that door with a new found respect for yourself. The respect is that you made it through the class and actually feel great,  until the next morning when you can't walk and you still find yourself back at the studio wanting more.
Burr Leonard is the founder of this workout and since she opened her flagship in San Francisco it has grown with studios coast to coast with a huge following.
I actually stumbled upon the bar Method because of a reoccurring back injury from many years of Snow Boarding which  made it hard to work out or run like I was used to. The Bar method is great for injuries because  all the exercises are developed with a physical therapist so knee and back problems are not a issue anymore while you get the most intense workout ever.
This is Burr doing thigh work and I bet you can't guess her age!
 My favorite studio in Hermosa Beach owned by the beautiful Millie and all the gorgeous instructors with rocking bodies that keep us coming back.
And the fairly newly opened Soho studio that I plan to visit the next time I'm in NYC.
The best workout after a day of indulgence and with the holidays almost upon us I know I'll be indulging like I always do. 

Yes we know we have been on a blogging hiatus but we are starting up again and have a few shoots up our sleeves. Promise to get back to all you wonderful people who have been commenting this weekend:)
