Katerina Bocci Bridal Show + Polar FT7 HRM review + Cucumber Kale smoothie

12 Feb


Had another bridal show yesterday for Katerina Bocci Couture Bridal.
Being 6 foot tall, it isn’t easy (never been done, actually) to find a dress that fits me perfectly and is actually long enough for me. This dress was it. Now I know they are out there, unfortunately, probably out of my budget.

Hair by Andrew Marke Salon in Macomb & Rochester, MI
I have pretty thin hair, so I’m always wishing I had more thickness to be able to style it better, but I was pretty impressed the hairdresser was able to give me some volume and a braid that doesn’t look super tiny!

On workout news, I love my Polar FT7, I did a lot of research when looking into getting a heart rate monitor. I wasn’t sure if it would just be another gadget that I love for awhile and then could care less about, so I didn’t want to spend a ton. I found the Polar FT7 for around $75, it does everything necessary, heart rate, fat burning/fitness zones, duration, calories, and a clear view of your heart rate.

After boxing, I needed to use up some cucumbers (that I for some reason always let go bad) and I’m out of the majority of my basic smoothie needs (almond milk, greek yogurt, strawberries, and spinach) so I had to experiment. I ended up with:

Cucumber-Kale-Pineapple Smoothie

  • 2 cups of kale
  • 1 whole cucumber (ends cut off)
  • 2 cups of frozen pineapple
  • 1/2 cup OJ
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 large dates
  • slice of ginger

verdict: good! It made two cups, and it was really tasty. Plus, I can feel good about everything that was in it.

Some random documentation of Brad and I.


I wanted to get Brad a variation of random, small, thoughtful things for Valentine’s Day, so I decided to make my own gift basket for him. I got a crate from Michaels and filled it with craft beer and other goodies. I’ll update with pictures, likely tomorrow, after he gets it. If he somehow has a link to my blog, I’d hate to give the surprise away, but it’s super cute and gave me the opportunity to be creative.
