Top 10: Classic Chick Flicks {Part I}

Going over the initial list for this weeks top 10, I realized that this will have to be a multi part list! There are just too many good chick flicks out there. Whether you are looking for  a tried and true tear jerker, or a laugh until you cry movie- here is part one of the ever growing list!

Chick Flicks Pt 1

1. Clueless- “As if” there is another 1990′s chick flick to resonate with, If not for the catch phrases alone, we had iconic & ridiculous California styles plus grungy Paul Rudd to adore in this film.

2. Breakfast at Tiffany’s- Watching Holly Golightly take on the streets on Manhattan as an independent gal finding herself is the next best thing to walking those streets yourself.

3. The Notebook- True love at it’s absolute best. Need I really say more?

4. Hot to Lose a Guy in 10 Days- Late Hudson and Matthew McConahey are hilarious as they play games with each other to promote their status at work and make fools of themselves all over town!

5. Steel Magnolias- A heartwrenching southern take of friends and family who love and laugh together through the good and very bad times. Get the tissues, you will need them.

6. Mean Girls- Set in my hometown and out about a year after a graduated high school, this is one of the funniest flicks showing the coming of age for a group of know nothing girls who are lead my the meanest of all- none other then a fresh faced Rachel McAdams ( pre-notebook). Even more, you have Lindsay Lohan in her good days and Amy Poehler and Tina Fey adding a hysterical tone to the film.

7. Bridesmaids- The most recent of this list, Bridemaids had every woman watching snorting and peeing in their pants.Starring SLM alums and Gilmore Girls Alum Melissa McCarthy in maybe the funniest performance ever, you can’t watch this without re-watching a million more times!

8. Sixteen Candles- Molly Ringwald shows teen angst like none other. This poor girl is tossed aside on her 16th birthday by her too busy family only to wind up having the birthday adventure of a lifetime- complete with fulfilling her dreams of a kiss with her high school crush. Grab the ice cream and girl friends for a double feature and grab Pretty In Pink and make it a night!

9. The Sweetest Thing- This is a lesser know classic featuring Christina Applegate, Cameron Diaz and Selma Blair. With catch phrases that will have you rolling and scenes that are a crack up, a bestie of mine used to watch this and laugh until it hurt, a must see for anyone who hasn’t!

10. Now & Then- Four women who grew up together reunite years down the line after drifting apart.  It gives truth to phrase who says you can’t gp home- no matter what life has brought 20 years later.

Xtend Barre is here!

Xtend Barre Premier Ballet Barre Workout comes to Highlands Ranch.

webpage

Sculpt a Long, Lean Chiseled Body with a Fusion of Dance, Pilates & Cardio in Under 60 Minutes.

Classes will be FREE until Saturday July 26th!  Xtend Barre Highlands Ranch is also offering 20% OFF of class packages and merchandise until Saturday.

Featured in FITNESS, SHAPE, and SELF magazines, Xtend Barre is a high-energy total-body workout that combines serious sculpting exercises done at the ballet barre with lively music and CARDIO where clients can have fun while achieving serious.

“Not all barre is created equal,” explains April Norris, owner of Xtend Barre Highlands. “Xtend Barre is truly different, unlike other barre workouts which solely focus on pulsing and micro-movements; we put a larger emphasis on dance while still incorporating fundamentals of Pilates.

I personally checked out the studio and it is fabulous. What a great work out and they even have a darling changing room area in the back so you can come straight from work.

For more information and to register for classes go to www.xtendbarreworkout.com or call 303-791-2100.

A Jumper and Harem Pants

First off- check out that view! It’s shots like this that make me take a deep, appreciative breathe for the daily view I am surrounded with living in Boulder. For this rooftop look, we focused on billowy, boho silk looks. We paired Melissa with a cropped jumper, Tanner with a military inspired button up and Kate in the ultra trendy harem pants and asymmetrical blouse. Add some funky & bold jewelry to the mix & viola- instant style!

Top 10: Best Beaches in America

The heat is on and I for one am always looking for the next watering hole. While we do have some spots to frequent in Colorado, when I am feeling like a beach day, it’s usually to another state. If you are in dire need of a summer break, check out this list of top beached in the US and take your pick for a mid-summer getaway. Have a favorite beach of your own? Share it in our comments section, we would love to know your favorite sandy spot!

best beaches

 

1. Manele Bay, Hawaii

Hulopo’e Beach on the island of Lana’i, lies at the base of the Four Seasons Lana’i at Manele Bay. Overlooking the bay and a marine preserve filled with colorful fish and dolphins. With 70 degree waters, you will find some of the best snorkeling around with an amazing view to match.

2. Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

As the largest resort along South Carolina’s 60-mile Grand Strand, Myrtle Beach is the ultimate vacation on the East Coast. Full of summertime action with beaches along the Strand, water parks, restaurants and live entertainment, it is an amazing time for all. Myrtle Beach’s actual beach is an extensive stretch of silky white sand, with opportunities for fishing, sunbathing, surf and swimmings.

3. Nantucket, Massachusetts

This one is a personal favorite since I am spending half of my August there soon! Like a faraway fairytale land with a bright blue backdrop of ocean and bay in a community of historic, weathered white cottages surrounded by wild roses. This former whaling community has quaint neighborhoods and a beach for everyone, including Surfside Beach and Children’s Beach, both of which feature calm waters and no shortage of sandcastles. I will be at them all enjoying the scene.

4. Kauna’oa Bay, Hawaii

Located on the Kohala Coast of the Aloha-state’s Big Island, Kauna’oa Bay is the exact idea that you think of when you picture Hawaii. It has stretches of white sand, palm trees along with calm blue water. The crescent-shaped beach is a a great spot for families, active types and loungers alike.

5. Clearwater Beach, Florida

Clearwater Beach has brought countless families and couples to its sandy shores. The narrow 3-mile stretch of the Pinellas Peninsula on the Gulf Coast, it straddles the blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico to the west, and Tampa Bay to it’s east. Enjoy sunbathing on white sand, renting fishing boats, parasailing or heading to a mainland museum or aquarium.. Plus, if you’re lucky you can spot a dolphin or two in the pristine waters.

6. Coronado, California

Coronado Central Beach is 1.5 miles behind the great homes residing along Ocean Boulevard. With the fabulous Hotel Del Coronado, swimmers, bodysurfers, boogie boarders, sand sculptors alike come from near and far to explore. North Beach attracts surfers in the morning, and at the far north is the best ever Dog Beach, where pups can frolic in the surf and play in the sand.

7. Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts

As summer starts, the crowds flock to Martha’s Vineyard in droves, but peace is found in the Vineyard’s far eastern reaches — up-island at Moshup Beach. Tucked beneath the infamous Gay Head Cliffs, Moshup Beach is an unspoiled paradise of soft, white sand framed by red, brown and tan striated cliffs looming from above. This is another spot I am hitting soon and can’t wait to see for myself.

8. East Hampton, New York

Beloved by New Yorkers near and far, this white sand beach with , roaring waves is beautiful in every season.  Full of your favorite A-listers, and at the end of Main Street is Main Beach, with perfect white beaches and tasty lobster rolls await with crisp glass of chardonnay.

9. Cape Hatteras National Seashore, North Carolina

With 72 miles along the Atlantic coast of the Outer Banks, the Cape Hatteras National Seashore is a skinny strip of barrier islands from Nags Head to Ocracoke Island. With high, sandy dunes and  frothy surf, it is great for beachcombing and body-surfing. Climb up the 248 steps to the top of the nation’s tallest lighthouse to view the shore in a one of a kind way.

10. La Jolla Cove, La Jolla,CA

San Diego’s most desirable spot for swimming, diving and snorkeling. The water is calm and the cove is ecologically protected. There is also a world famous dive site that is located in the La Jolla ecological preserve. I love going here on trips to San Diego and watching the silly sea animals loving their home and showing off for the visitors.
