only in dc :: go-go zumba

i saw someone post a pic about go-go zumba on instagram and i was all like, “weerrrrrrrdddd?? where?” if you are from (or have been to) the dc area and know anything about go-go it’s not hard to imagine how this idea would offer a great workout. in fact, the creator of this workout, dani tucker, said they burn 1,300 calories during each class!

i googled to get more info and found that go-go fitness’s z go-go holds classes all around the dc area and for just five bucks!! the schedule of classes can be found on their site. i also found this video on youtube to give you all a little peek at how it goes down during go-go zumba.

make yo’ own :: jeweled ribbon headband

the longer my hair gets the more i feel i need to do something with it. it’s not long enough for one of those cutesy top buns just yet, but i can toss a headband on and this jeweled one (diy tutorial by whimseybox) is just the thing to knock my curly fro’ up a few notches for a funky look. and hello!! it’s so daggone easy to make. i’m actually not the blingiest person on the block, but i imagine you can go wild with trinkets to add to ribbon.

make yo’ own :: giant tissue paper flowers

okay, i know it seems like i’m on this ginormous kick after last week’s big ol’ pom pom how-to vid, but this might actually come in handy for that wedding i’m planning. and since it might be useful to me, i figured it might be useful for someone else too!

i remember when i was a little girl my pop would let me get a gigantic paper tissue flower whenever we went to king’s dominion. i doubt if they still sell them, but i thought they were the most wonderful things back then. now i can make my own! woot! woot!

here goes…
