poised in pink

[Earrings: The Jewel Box Boutique, Scarf: H&M, Dress: Mossimo for Target, Shoes: Dirty Laundry

I love the neutral color of  this dress, but it was screaming for some color, and my cheery pink wedges were just the touch. After work most days I trade these pink wedges for my new pink Asics. Don't let all this pink fool you though, when I hit the pavement the main thing that keeps me motivated during a run is my unique choice of music.

Current Workout Playlist

Bodies - Drowning Pool 

Let it Rock - Kevin Roudolf & Lil Wayne

Alive - P.O.D

E.T. - Katy Perry (feat. Kayne West)

Remember the Name - Fort Minor 

Dragula - Rob Zombie 

Remember playing sports in high school and getting the instant adrenaline when someone from the other team pissed you off? Some of these songs are so opposite of my personality, but they give me that instant adrenaline feeling, so it works. My boyfriend on the other hand loves this kind of music always. Could you imagine him dragging me to a rock concert? Because he tried. I change up my playlist every couple of weeks because I get bored and unmotivated with the same thing every day. I am always looking for new songs to add to my playlist, what are some of yours?

  7. Love that scarf! As a side note, I hate generic comments, but I wasn't sure what else to do! I noticed that you are following my little bloggy- I just wanted to let you know that I've had a change of URL and can now be found at . I've had a couple people ask me why I deleted myself, and am not sure why blogger doesn't redirect! I promise this is not one of those "follow me and I'll follow you back" comments- just wanted to share :) Have a wonderful day!
