Every Princess Needs a Castle…and Clothes

February is one of my favorite months because it’s so short, so my second paycheck comes a little sooner than expected, which is great for my budget. We also decided to buy the duplex we’ve been renting for the past couple of years and our offer was accepted! We’ve wanted to get into real estate for a long while and we’ve always wanted to buy a duplex with the idea of living in half and renting the other half. It’s really exciting that something we’ve talked about for years is finally happening and I couldn’t be happier that it’s the adorable one we’ve been living in.

I was really thankful for an extra day in February because I’ve been so busy on this project I’ve been working on and I wanted to reward myself with a little shopping.

There were so many fun Leap Day sales this year, but I decided to limit myself to some new headbands from Sweaty Bands (love their new botanical series which is both tropical and spring-like), and a couple of new shirts from Raw Threads’ brand new Princess Mantras series.

I thrashed my legs pretty hard this morning with Ashley Horner’s Becoming Extraordinary program, so this shirt seemed extra appropriate today (I got the V-neck version because it has sleeves). leg day

I’ve also always been a big fan of Belle in Beauty and the Beast (because she has a horse) so this shirt was a natural choice.


I really like Raw Threads not only for their fun Disney-inspired designs, but also that their fabric is UPF 50+ so I can know that I’m protecting my skin from the sun. Now that it’s essentially summer here again (what winter?) and I’m outside a lot more I’ve been working on making sure I apply plenty of sunscreen in the morning and touch up throughout the day. It’s so nice to know that my workout clothes are blocking some of those rays so I can worry about other things, like squeezing out those last few reps and how bad I might smell.

My big project is almost done so hopefully things will calm down a bit and I can post more. I’m also working to stick to a more reliable workout schedule so I can write more about my experiences with Ashley Horner’s Becoming Extraordinary program.
