Yesterday I had my Dove Visibly Smooth VIP party at Urban Body Studios in Atlanta for an urban bar class.  Most of us met up at the studio, and we were all really curious because none of us had taken an urban bar class before.  We were greeted by a firecracker of a woman who quickly told us to take our shoes off – all of us were walking around the room with our sneaks on.  We all quickly obliged and headed back in to begin our session.

She informed us that urban bar is a mix of dance, pilates and aerobics.  She cranked up the tunes and we all began to get stretched out and warmed up.  It really was quite hilarious because only a couple of us had ever even taken dance classes (I am one of those dance-free chicks), and some of us looked a bit goofy and uncoordinated. You should have seen us all trying to grapevine…it got pretty ugly pretty fast – I wasn’t able to get my camera up fast enough to capture it on film!  At one point she  realized that we were all wearing the same shirts (thanks to Dove – woot), and she really got a kick out of it, especially as we were all trying to get our coordination in check.  Some of us may have 2 left feet, but at least we looked cute in our tanks!

Since Dove also sent me a Flip camera, I (and some of the other girls) took time out from the class to film everyone in all of their urban bar glory.  Check out below for a short compilation of our hour in the studio.  Don’t be too intimidated by our lack of grace…

If you’ve never taken an urban bar class, I totally recommend you check it out.  It was a lot of fun and different from any other class I’ve taken before.  Plus it works muscles you don’t normally work out,(well maybe you do…me, not so much) and  I think most of us are pretty sore today.

I’ve been a Degree deodorant girl for years, but I will definitely be using Dove from now on.  A) It smells so good – even at the end of the day or after a workout. B) It conditions your underarms.  C)And I’m really excited how it is supposed lessen underarm hair after time.  I don’t know about you, but I hate having to shave everyday to remain hair-free all summer long.  My poor little armpits get a little irritated by daily razoring, and I’m looking forward to not having to deal with that anymore!

Of course the party didn’t end once we finished our urban bar class.  When we were done, everyone came over to the house for a little cooking out and hanging out.  Of course we had a few beers, which totally negated our workouts.  But it was too nice of a day to not have a couple of beers on the patio!

Thanks again Dove!

Hello lovelies!

The wonderful folks at Dove have invited me to host a Dove Visibly Smooth VIP Party for 10 of my friends and readers.  I am super excited because they are giving my friends and me samples of Dove Visibly Smooth Deodorant,  sleeveless workout shirts (so we can show off our newly smooth armpits), and a fitness class – oh snap!

On Sunday, we super awesome chicas will be heading to an Urban Bar Class to show off our beautiful armpits and get in a little workout.  After our workout, I will be having the ladies over for some snackables so we can replenish our energy.  I received a Flip Video Camcorder to document the whole thing, and of course I will share all of the craziness with you on Monday!

I received all of my goodies in the mail yesterday, and naturally I opened everything up right away.  I am totally wearing the deodorant today, and it smells really good.  And I feel nice and stink-free, especially on this beautiful 80-degree day.

Now here is where you come in, readers.  I am hosting my first-ever giveaway (I know how excited you all are!).

I participated in the Scarf Swap that Kate over at Simply Said by Simply Me organized, and now it’s time to show off my cute new scarf.

Nothing is greater than coming home from work and seeing a package waiting for you by the front door, especially on your birthday week!  My scarf swap partner was Jesse at Journey Through Life, and she sent me a pretty, soft and colorful scarf that will be perfect for cold winter nights and my trip to NY in December.

I know you are all dying to see what it looks like, so here are some pictures of me wearing it after getting home from dinner last night.

Loving my new scarf – My dress was a little clashy, but I didn’t feel like changing

IMG_2304Another angle of me and my new scarf.  My favorite part of this picture is demonic-looking Fado on the kitchen counter.  He looks like he has lasers for eyes!

Thanks so much for the scarf Jesse!  I love it!

Kate – thanks for organizing such a fun swap!

I was reading Adriana’s blog earlier today and she posted about a Scarf Swap that Kate over at Simply Said by Simply Me is organizing.  I thought it would be fun to participate because, honestly who doesn’t love a cute new scarf?

So if you want to join in, head to Kate’s page and post a comment with your e-mail address.  She’ll send you a form to fill out, and you’ll be ready to go!  You have until October 21st to sign up!

This weekend I’m off to Knoxville, TN to watch my beloved Dawgs battle the TN Vols.  I hope the game is good.  We’ll have a kick-ass tailgate complete with awesomely delicious chicken drumsticks (T and I are the master drumstick grillers), chorizo sausage, homemade baked goods, Bloody Marys and of course beer pong.

I have a cute new outfit to wear – A red dress, black leggings, and cute new black riding boots.  In the South jeans and sweats don’t cut it for football games (don’t ask me why, cause I really don’t know).  It’s supposed to be rainy, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it will hold off for the game.  At least we have a canopy to tailgate under!

Happy weekend lovelies! 🙂

I’ve never owned a pair of Ugg boots before because A) I live in Georgia and it’s not that cold  B) Because I live in Georgia, I can’t justify spending a lot of money on real winter boots.

But, I know people who have them and love them, so I know I’d like them too.  Especially when I head to NY for the winter.  Plus I always have cold feet!

So I decided to enter Whooga Boots free Uggs contest.  Fingers crossed that I win because I never win anything when I enter contests!
