Catch-up: work, blogging events, and life in general!

Hi guys! Been crazy as per usual, but wanted to pop in and share life lately! I hate to be doing basically catch-up posts these days - I don't mean to be abandoning my blog at all, but I have just been swamped. Thankfully, this past Saturday marked the end of our Hispanic Heritage festivals and we totally went out with a bang!

We had close to 40,000 attendees - meaning that we basically quadrupled last year's attendance. I am so extremely proud of our team and everyone's hard work that made it happen. It was a monumental event for Charlotte where we were able to close down two streets Uptown and have it be named the official Hispanic Heritage celebration of Charlotte!

this picture pretty much sums it up! 
Other than work, life has been pretty normal! I have been concentrating on eating clean and working out with my amazing trainer! I have had a few setbacks, but I am back on track! :)

Typical dinner: Grilled Chicken breast cooked with Mrs. Dash seasoning and organic olive oil spray, sauteed kale cooked in EVOO and garlic powder, small side salad with mushrooms, red peppers, and lettuce - topped with evoo and white wine vinegar or balsamic vinegar - yum! Getting cardio in as much as possible - my trainer makes us "run" on the eliptical!  photo 1_zps30bb708a.png
My sister and I out at Bubble on Saturday, Me with our Latina 102.3 DJ Carla at Hola Charlotte, Interviewing on Channel News 14 the day of the festival, lots of coffee to keep me going, radio promotion for the festival, and my baby chloe

Ordered these gorgeous Anthropologie flats! I love them! Lydia Cutout Loafers

 Yesterday, I got to attend a fun blogging event at my favorite place ever - Nordstrom! If you know anything about me, I am a complete Nordstromoholic. Definitely my favorite department store by far! Yesterday, Nordstrom at SouthPark mall held a trunk show and viewing party of the new Top Shop collection that will be available there on the 12th. I loved getting to see the collection and getting to see some of my favorite bloggers as well! It was a great event! Thank you to the lovely girls at Nordstrom for having us!

Topshop is one of my favorite stores, so I am so excited to have it in Charlotte now! Even though it is not the actual store, having it available at Nordstrom is still amazing!  photo f69f09f6307c11e3978e22000a1fb9d3_8_zpsd68d7c57.jpg
