We are more than just beauty and style over here, I want to inspire my readers to be fit and to live their best life while looking stylish. Last year I decided to get serious about my health and I went to the doctor to get checked out-everything went well thank God. But after that appointment I sat down and decided to eat better-which is a constant struggle because I am a foodie and of course I like everything that I am not supposed to eat but hey I have gotten a lot better. I also made the decision to start and continue a fitness routine-which changes from time to time but currently I’m doing sit-ups, squats, walking and I want to start running but first baby steps. But that got me to thinking about running shoes-of course I want them to be cute but most importantly I want them to be comfortable and do their job. If you are looking for the best running shoes for the trail, cross training and more then keep on reading for all the deets.
