Happy Labor Day!

What I Miss Most About Every Summer...

What I Miss Most After Every Summer…

Well, here we are. Labor Day – the unofficial end of summer – has arrived. Whether you’re working out, chilling out, beaching or grilling, I hope you savor every second of the holiday.

As I hope most people will abandon the Internet and spend more time with family or friends today, I offer a short and sweet post featuring my favorite  summertime songs. If you’re looking to make the season last a little longer, maybe you’ll download one or two and create a new playlist for your workout or cookout.

Here’s wishing everyone a happy and safe Labor Day ahead and here’s to a whole September filled with new chances to have fun, be fit and feel fabulous!

Laura’s Summer Song Faves:

Vacation Friday Fun!

Vacation Time! Wishing everyone a great week!

TGIF!

As many of you read this, I’m either headed to or have already started basking in the sunshine at one of my favorite places on the planet: Montauk, New York.

So begins a week-long vacation and some long-anticipated downtime! That means I’ll be taking some time off from blogging, too. (I also plan to be a little less active on the Twitter feed and Facebook timeline.)

A big part of my vacation will be enjoying some non-time-restricted workouts and hopefully getting some of my exercises done at the beach. Stay tuned for posts later this month on how that all plays out.

For now, I leave you with some feel-good music that I’ll be sure to listen to while staring at the sea, taking long beach walks or reading. Some are new, some are fast, some are true “summer” anthems and some are the old-standbys that always make me smile!

  • “Vacation,” the Go-Gos
  • “Cruel Summer,” Bananarama
  • “Shake It,” Anane (feat. Mr. Vegas & Tony Touch)
  • “Let’s Go,” Calvin Harris (feat. Ne-Yo)
  • “The Fire,” The Roots & John Legend
  • “Time of My Life,” 3 Doors Down
  • “Boys of Summer,” Don Henley
  • “Scream,” Usher
  • “How You Like Me Now,” The House That Dirt Built
  • “Heat of the Moment,” Asia
  • “Shout,” Tears for Fears

Here’s to a great weekend ahead! I look forward to my extended unwind time so I can return to reality with new energy to have fun, be fit and feel fabulous!
