Pretty Sweet Lunches

Clearly, these ridiculously adorable lunches put my daytime culinary skills to shame (sorry, Em!). I’m usually throwing together the odds and ends of a semi-well-balanced lunch on my way out the door. At least I can aspire to one day pack a mid-day meal with this kind of goodness and style. One day!
Take a look at these cute meals and prepare to be put to shame. 

30A Favorite: Nike Tempo Running Shorts

Sure 30A is a hot vacation spot, but it’s becoming more obvious that our little community is now one of the more popular places for people to get their exercise on. It only makes sense when we have 20 something miles of paved trails and some of the best scenery you can find.

In the 10 miles I drive back and forth to work every day, I see growing numbers of people walking, running, biking, pushing strollers and walking dogs. I join in the evenings and on the weekends, but it seems like there is always a crowd whether it’s 6 in the morning, high noon or 8 at night. It also seems that almost every other woman is wearing these Nike shorts. They’re under $30 and come in about 30 color combos. They’re everywhere! So for a tiny sample of the 30A lifestyle all you need is a little time to exercise and a pair of these in your favorite color.

Find Balance on 30A

If you’re looking for a fantastic yoga session, let me tell you — Balance Health Studio in Seagrove is THE place to go. The 60 minute classes take place from the third floor studio and give a killer view of the Gulf. They’re great for any level and only cost $15 per class. In addition to the regular schedule of yoga each week, Balance also offers Boot Camp and Spinning Classes. Their schedule is posted online, or if you’re passing by, check out their chalkboard (a 30A staple) to see what’s happening. It’s a perfect place to go to relax and rejuvenate after a long day at the beach or a full day of shopping!

Get Your ‘Hills’ Kicks

Attention LC addicts! If you find yourselves glued to the tube like me every time The Hills is on to see what Lauren Conrad wears next, then listen up — I found her tennis shoes (or at least some pretty close look-a-likes). LC was out in Hollywood getting a little exercise with her roomie ‘Lo’ and was sporting a fresh pair of Asics not too long ago.

The pair I found (and purchased) at Famous Footwear in Silver Sands are Asics GT-2130′s in White/Midnight/Turquoise on sale for $85.99. Aside from their obvious cool factor, they really are great running shoes. If you can’t live the Hollywood life like The Hills girls, then you can at least try to look the part.
