The “Starlight Tights” will infuse a lil’ magic into your fitness closet!
NYC Pretty Starlight Tights are only available for a very limited time. Christine Bibbo Herr, a well-known fitness & lifestyle blogger, spokesperson and creator of NYC Pretty recently partnered with Four Athletics and designed her own leggings called “Starlight Tights”. Available HERE until February 6th, HURRY UP and get yourself a pair!!
I’ve been following @NYCPretty for some time now and the first few weeks of January I was lovin’ her Insta posts featuring the launch of her new Starlight Tights. Anything with stars, the moon, or that has a “spiritual chic” vibe to it – is a must have these days!
Twice I went online to purchase myself a pair and got side tracked. Then not long before I left for my Fit & Fit Girl’s luxury fitness retreat in Costa Rica I received an email from the owner Rebecca Garland telling me that Christine from NYC Pretty and her husband John (a professional photographer) would be attending the retreat. “Not sure how but you know I’m getting myself a pair of those Starlight Tights!” I told myself.
Fast forward to the sixth day of the fitness retreat, Hannah (our personal trainer) and Christine walked into the villa after modeling for a photo shoot and dropped off a big box of fitness wear for us. We all rummaged through the fitness apparel, picking & choosing the pieces that suited us best. Then Hannah came back and said, “Here’s one more pair of leggings.” and threw a pair of NYC Pretty Starlight Tights in the box. All those beach sprints and hill runs came in handy because I shot up and grabbed those leggings before anyone had a chance to even blink! I pulled them on as fast as possible, hoping to god they were my size. Perfection!
Early next morning, I woke up and put on my new leggings for our last yoga class. Afterward John called me over and said, “Let’s do this….” waving his camera at me. “One second…” I responded as I ran to my room and came back with an empty bottle of champagne in hand. (Long story…)
Now if you’ve been following me for anytime you know two things about me; 1) I love champagne and 2) I do my very best to lead a fit & fun life. To me, a healthy life style doesn’t mean the gym and counting calories. It’s about making fitness fun, tasting all the nutritious foods, being adventurous, taking chances, pushing my boundaries and drinking champagne!
“Everything in moderation, including moderation!”
Early last year I was in the process of re-designing www.fitandflirty.com and I had a vision for the images; I took the time to story-board every scene; which included me in a variety of fun fitness wear doing different workouts with a bottle of champagne always visible somewhere in the photograph. (Sorta like a Superman figure can always be seen in almost every Seinfeld episode) I hired a photographer but alas, life got in the way and although my new site launched the photography project never came to fruition.
So, when these few seemingly insignificant moments lined up and these pictures were the outcome, I could not ignore the magical work of the universe. Serendipity comes in many forms; know that the universe wants to give you what you desire. Ask, then be patient and trust in the timing. The universe will deliver what you need at the right time and will remove what is no longer serving you. Remember, not matter how big or small the wish granted, always practice gratitude.
What do you think, was this a random coincidence or a small dose of magic from the universe? Leave a comment below.
If you’re looking to infuse a little magic into your fitness closet, the Starlight Tights are for you! These leggings are bare fabric, high- waisted and beautifully designed! With less then a week left, hop over to NYC Pretty and snag a pair for only $68 USD before it’s too late!
“Star light, star bright. The first star I see tonight. I wish I may, I wish I might. Have the wish I wish tonight…”
On Your MarQ Running Co. is fun and stylish running apparel based on witty running quotes and mantras which are inspired by the owner Lisa while she’s out pounding the pavement.
As a female juggling two completely different businesses I understand the struggles and the highs and lows that come with being self-employed, so I like to make a point of supporting small businesses. For me it’s also important to learn about where my purchase is coming from and who dreamed it up. Getting to know the soul that birthed its creation somehow makes the purchase process magical.
The t-shirts and tanks at On Your MarQ are all unique and playful, jam packed with double entendres. I’ve been eyeing the “Any Given RunDay”tank; obviously perfect for my Sunday run, after the NFL games… and with my big birthday coming up in January, the “Birthday Girl, Pace Yourself” tank is a perfect fit! I’ll get to wear it on my luxury fitness retreat in Costa Rica and it’ll also serve as a reminder to pace my champagne intake!
I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Lisa on Instagram, her positive vibes and never give up attitude is truly refreshing! After I put in my online order, I reached out to her and asked if she had time for a short interview and today I’m excited to share with you a little bit more about her journey!
Like so many runners, it didn’t take much for Lisa to get hooked. After she completed her first 5km race she was a full blown running addict. As a former marine, running was definitely not foreign to her but the feeling of satisfaction and joy that accompanied her when she started running for herself was unfamiliar.
FIT & Flirty – When did you start your company?
Lisa- I am actually coming up on my one year anniversary which is very exciting!! December 6th of 2016 was our official launch date!! I cannot believe it has been almost one whole year!!
FIT & Flirty- What was the biggest obstacle you had to overcome to see your dream come to fruition?
Lisa- Ahh, my biggest obstacle was myself! lol. I don’t know how many times I’ve talked myself down from this. I’d get excited and then I would say to myself “meh, maybe it’s not a great idea, maybe I’ll be in over my head!”
FIT & Flirty – How do you come up with the slogans/sayings/ideas?
Lisa – Most of the time my ideas come when I’m out on a run! (hence “Designs Born on the Run”) I’ve had to stop in the middle of my run to jot my thoughts and ideas down on my phone notes so I don’t forget later! The ideas really just flow in. I have a slew of slogans just sitting and waiting. Some may never make it out, but I keep ideas tucked away. Some ideas are really just random thoughts I jot down and may only make sense to me, but I know, in my mind, where I want to go with it. Some ideas are instant and some take time to develop into what makes sense in my head! My latest design for the New York City Marathon was born while I was on a girls trip to NYC way back in April! I knew I wanted to do a shirt for the race, like i did for the Boston Marathon, but it had to be right and it had to come to me. I was running in L.I.C.(Long Island City) Hunter’s Point South Park Pier and along with playing Alicia Keys’ song in the car “Empire State of Mind Part II”, the idea was born. I’ve revised it so many times since that trip, until finally settling on THE one! (I’ll attach pic from running on pier in regular clothes and heeled boots lol…we were just having fun with pics. i f you want to use it)
FIT & Flirty – What’s does a running week for Lisa look like?
Lisa – Right now I am dealing with a nagging hamstring injury so I’m not getting out there like I want to! 🙁 I’m probably only running anywhere from 9-15 miles a week. I’m not currently training for anything, but I’m dying to get back to feeling strong again and crushing some goals!
FIT & Flirty – They say that our biggest challenges in life make us who we are; is there a lesson or message you learned during your battle with cancer and would you like share with my readers?
Lisa – Life really is a gift. Try to live each day as such and embrace the good with the bad. If there is something you are unhappy with then make the change. It can start with a small change, a single step towards the bigger picture. I know that sometimes this can be easier said than done (I still work on this everyday), but just know you are stronger than you think and capable of so much more than you think! Never stop fighting!
Well said Lisa!
A true inspiration; with her life shaken to the core with the diagnosis of cancer she persisted, stayed positive and today (bless her heart) is in full remission, living every day to its fullest!
