My weekend has officially started! I am taking a much needed long weekend to head out to Montauk. As always, rompers are my go to pieces for the summer. I wore this black lace romper for my birthday a couple of months ago, but I plan on wearing it again this weekend for a dinner at Navy Beach. Did I mention that this romper is super affordable! Seriously it’s less than twenty dollars!! I’ve been working out like crazy on my legs and I have to say I have been seeing amazing changes. The summer is the time to work out hard and show off those nice legs ladies!! Stay motivated and be consistent. It takes time but in the end it will be worth it!

My Dairy-Free Lifestyle

Hello everyone!! I’ve decided to get more personal with my blog and add more about my fitness and health. I recently started a dairy- free lifestyle a little over four months ago. For those of you who may not know, I use to be crazy about food. I ate whatever I basically wanted – pizza on the weekend, pasta, breads, etc. I was never fat or overweight but I definitely did not feel tone or fit. I guess you could say I was “skinny fat”. I did work out. I did stuff at the gym, tried out insanity, was a member at a boxing club but for some reason I still was not achieving the body that I wanted. I went through the phase of crazy partying, going to festivals till the crack of dawn, but always just feeling like absolute crap every weekend. I would be hungover and ate like shit. Let’s be real, we all have been there. I would be the one ordering a bagel with cream cheese or a massive burger with fries every weekend. I decided enough was enough and I really wanted to achieve that fit and tone body. I read many articles online about how giving up dairy made a lot of people feel great and energized and decided to give it a try. I was pretty good on not eating dairy during the week but weekends were my downfall (umm…3 slices of pizza!!!). I will admit it was extremely hard at first. I was exhausted, grumpy, and wanted to eat dairy so bad. I knew my body was trying to detox and I had to fight the urges. I changed up my diet too by eating whole foods (lots of veggies, lean meats, good fats, nuts, etc) to nourish my body. I cut out refined sugars and processed carbs and slowly my body was adjusting and my cravings for dairy were slowly going away. Now my body only craves healthy food. I don’t even think about eating dairy and I’ve never felt or looked better. I work out 5-6x a week and absolutely love working out now. I do NOT cheat on weekends to have that tiny of amount of dairy. If I go out to eat, I make sure there is no dairy used, which is why vegan restaurants are my best options. So what benefits have I noticed going diary-free?

  1. More energy– my energy levels increased. I don’t feel lazy or tired anymore and I’m actually always in the mood to workout! I now try to fit in a workout as much as I can
  2. Less bloated – dairy causes your stomach to feel bloated. You know that feeling. That feeling of being fat and being able to stretch your stomach out as if you looked pregnant. Well I have to say not eating dairy makes me feel skinny and my stomach is way less bloated!!
  3. Clearer skin – my skin cleared up a lot from cutting out dairy. There have been studies that show that dairy can cause acne. Eliminating dairy has allowed me to have clear and glowing skin. I’ve thrown out my foundation and only use a light BB cream now. I love it!! I am an advocate for natural beauty and less makeup
  4.  Weight loss – going dairy free has also allowed me to lose weight and with all my workouts that I have been doing, I look and feel way more fit and tone.

I am in love with my lifestyle now. I never want to live the lifestyle I had in the past because the way I feel now is so rewarding. I’ve even convinced some of my roommates to try dairy-free things! One of my favorite dairy-free things is my protein shake that I have everyday after a workout. It’s packed with 24 grams of protein and it literally tastes like a delicious milkshake. It comes in 3 different flavors- vanilla chai, chocolate, and berry. The chocolate is one of my favorites! If you would like to learn more about these amazing shakes or want to try ones that aren’t dairy-free, feel free to shoot me an email (tiffany@livinginheels.com) and I would be happy to answer any questions you may have! Stay posted, I will be adding more stuff on my fitness routine and some cool recipes that I’ve learned to make!

Stay healthy and active XOXO

It’s officially summer!! (even though I consider the start of Memorial Day weekend as the beginning of summer) So far my summer has been so much fun and July is only going to get crazier. Last weekend I sang my heart out at the Jason Aldean and Thomas Rhett country concert at the the Nikon Jones Beach theater. I highly recommend this venue if you never been. You are literally on the beach facing the water with a spectacular view.  My summer go to outfit is a romper. You will see me wearing them a lot this summer. It’s just so simple to throw on and walk out the door. I love this lace romper from 6 Shore Road. The sexy back makes this a fabulous piece to wear at night to go out with friends or you can totally dress this down with a pair of chucks or cute lace up flats!

Hello everyone! So sorry for the delay in posts. It’s been a crazy past few weeks. I came back from a cruise a couple of weeks ago and it felt great to just relax and not use my phone.  I was able to fully take in the scenery and I really got to enjoy my time with my family. I am so happy that I am tan! These pictures were taken before my trip (hence the paleness!). For me, summer has officially started. I had a fabulous Memorial Day weekend with my friends. Now that the weather is much warmer, I am kissing goodbye to black colored clothes and saying hello to more white and pastel/bright colored clothing! Let the tanning begin!

I’ve been looking for the perfect spring work pants and I have officially found them! These windowpane slim fit pants are the perfect fit and I love being able to dress them up or down for work. If you’re looking for cute work shoes that won’t put your feet in pain, these slingback heels are super comfy and easy to walk in. If you’re not crazy about heels, don’t worry these heels are only an inch! I am looking forward to a nice family vacation starting tomorrow! My grandpa is turning 90 and we are going on a cruise that will be stopping at the Bahamas, St. Thomas, and St. Martin. I am looking forward to getting my pasty skin tan for the summer!!

These photos were shot awhile back during the winter but I wanted to still share these with you all because a few of these pieces can definitely be worn for this season. The suede blush vest is a great piece to wear to work or can be thrown over a tank with jeans. I am a huge fan of wearing vests because to me it’s like a blazer, it pulls an outfit together. I love this patchwork skirt. It’s a great piece to wear out to dinner with friends or you can make it sexy with a fitted bodysuit for a night out. I am so happy that the weather is starting to stay warm and that it actually is starting to feel like spring! Tonight I am going to a blogger networking party at a gorgeous renovated brownstone in NYC. Follow along on instagram for updates!

There’s nothing better than showing some skin when the weather warms up. For me, I am a huge fan of showing some skin in the back. I love bare back tops and I love how low this top goes from the back. My newest obsession? Baseball caps. I wear them all the time after working out or on weekends when I have to run errands. It’s been a roller coaster with the weather here in NYC. We go from possible snow to 70 degree weather. Looks like we will luck out tomorrow with warm weather!
