This is my first ever Five Friday’s and let me say, first off, Happy Friday! To celebrate my favorite day of the week I usually feature a pair of shoes from my extensive collection and overflowing closet, all of which you can find on new and revamped Shoes page. I will start of with a pair of shoes for my favorite things right now, and take a scroll down to see the other things that have made me happy this week!
The weather is finally nice and I could jump for joy. These four photos were taken, and of course shared on my Instagram account, yesterday over the course on the four-mile journey I took from my apartment down to the tip of Manhattan along the East River. Exercising on the water is such an amazing bonus to living in the best city in the world. And while I was not staring at the river there was very attractive eye candy running, biking, or walking dogs.
This show is absolutely amazing! Kerry Washington is gorgeous and is such a kiss-butt lead role in the second season Scandal, which I told you in January was on my Spring TV watch list. Every week the 10pm Thursday slot on my TiVo is taken by ABC’s drama hit series and I am in love with it. Every week Olivia Pope and Fitzgerald F. Grant make me really happy. No, I am not a lawyer, no I do not live in D.C., and no, I do not have a tragic past but I want to be a Gladiator so badly. If you are watching this show, you know what I mean. If you are not – do not start now. Watch from the beginning and thank me later.
One of my New Years Resolutions was to try every class that my gym offered and this has been proving a challenging and interesting goal. This goal inspired me to take a class called “Jukari Fit to Fly”, which is a Cirque Du Soleil fitness class. Even though it is new to me, the class has been around since 2008 when Reebok teamed up with the masters of circus arts and street entertainment. The hour-long fitness class is hard to describe, but it is a truly different group exercise experience and I absolutely love it. I actually get excited to go to class every week and tomorrow when I head to class I will definitely have a smile on my face.
I just had a Scandal marathon. I watched season one and the first two episodes of season two. I get it now. Love!
LOVE your new shoes. They are rad, love the red soles!
Awesome inspirations. You are perfect.
This is the way I love it the most!
Best wishes from

Great post!! LOVE it 🙂
I thought they were roller blades too! Who knew? I thought about getting a pair but then I thought about falling. So now I want a bike. I know I could totally still fall and eat it but somehow biking feels “safer” in my mind.
I am OBSESSED with Scandal. Like, embarrassingly obsessed. I knocked out season one in one weekend, and I’m almost caught up with season two on iTunes. Those two crazy kids just need to be together–it’s KILLING ME!

Cute heels! And I’ve heard such great things about the show Scandal but haven’t had a chance to watch the whole series yet!
