Vacation Friday Fun!

Vacation Time! Wishing everyone a great week!


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!

Summer Friday


Since we’re allegedly in the midst of the lazy days of summer and I’m on the verge of wrapping up an anything-but-easy-breezy work week, I’m definitely ready to be super lazy this weekend!

It looks like Mother Nature will be cooperating with my beach and gal-pal plans here in New York. Since chilling out is on my weekend agenda, I thought it was a good time to offer my top 10 all-time favorite fun summer anthems.

Whether you’re warming up or cooling down, taking a long walk on the beach, or just hanging with family and friends in the backyard, I hope some of these songs improve the ambience for your down time.

Of course, I want to know what’s your favorite summer song?

Whatever music you listen to, here’s to a fantastic weekend filled with plenty of time to re-charge the batteries and countless chances to have fun, be fit and feel fabulous!
