My Rocksbox Unboxing

Rockbox Unboxing

by Laura Lohr on February 3, 2016

Rockbox 1200I was recently contacted by this company with a super cool idea. The company is called Rocksbox and it’s a a designer jewelry subscription service. You basically rent beautiful designer jewelry, from an endless jewelry closet, with amazing stuff. I’m in love with jewelry and love to rotate new pieces in, because I get bored. Yet, I’ve got diamond ring tastes on a cubic zirconia budget and my jewelry collection is somewhat limited. Rocksbox offered me a three month trial membership to try it out and my very own Rocksbox arrived yesterday.

In the video above, I am opening my Rocksbox for the first time. I got a beautiful necklace, a pretty ring, and a pair of fabulous earrings. I can’t wait to see what comes next!

North Aware Smart Parka

North Aware Smart Parka

We went to Arizona in December and experienced cold that actually hurt my face. I didn’t even know that cold like that actually exists. I don’t live in a cold environment in Southern California, nevertheless, I enjoy visiting cold places in the winter. There are certainly many complaints I’ve had about my winter wares in the past. For example, how many times have I lost or forgot my gloves? I cannot even count how many times I’ve put my two gloves in a pocket and ended up with one. Or, I’ve forgotten my scarf? &%$#! While we were in Arizona, […]

Fitness Friday Strong

January 29, 2016

  It’s been quite a ride the past few months! There have been so many changes to report on this Fitness Friday! I’m holding steady with 30 pounds lost and I’m continuing my running plan. It was a really rough week, but I managed to get through, to the other side! PHEW! I’m so glad this week is over! I’ve been on “Metabolic Adjustment” at Lindora. Metabolic Adjustment is a way for the body to adjust and to trick it into continuing the weight loss. The goal is to help transition patients that have completed their weight loss to transition […]

10 Weeks with Lindora

January 27, 2016
Weight Loss

I can’t believe it, but my first 10 weeks with Lindora are coming to a close! I’ve managed to lose 31 pounds since my first consultation with Lindora and 28 pounds since I started following the Lindora plan. A solid 30 pounds of weight loss in less than 10 weeks! I want to take a moment and talk about my experience so far with Lindora. I’ve been asked a lot of questions from friends and family, so I thought, what better place to answer them, than here, on my blog. What Exactly is Lindora? Lindora is a medically supervised weight loss […]

Laura’s Kitchen: Olive and Artichoke Heart Crostini Recipe

Olive and Artichoke Crostini

I’m going to share with you one of my favorite hor d’oeuvres recipes. I have a Olive and Artichoke Heart Crostini recipe that you’re sure to love. These tasty little sourdough crostini will surely make your heart and tastebuds melt! When I made a batch of these, they were devoured in a very short period of time. Mmmmm. They are fantastic! They would be a great starter for your Super Bowl party, or even a great appetizer for your sweetheart for Valentine’s Day. I usually add black olives to this recipe and call it a day, but today, since the lovely […]

Carlsbad Half Marathon Recap

January 23, 2016
Carlsbad Half Marathon Finisher

Sunday, I accomplished a huge goal of mine…I completed another half marathon—the Carlsbad Half Marathon. While this wasn’t my FIRST half marathon, in many ways, it felt like it was. It had been a number of years since I had successfully completed a half, I had gotten out of shape, and I’d gained a lot of weight since the last one. Last January, I began the hard work of returning to running. Fall of 2015, I was finally ready to start adding miles to my training and I was finally ready to take on the distance. On Saturday, Allie Kat’s […]

Fitness Friday 30 Pounds Gone! Addition

January 22, 2016

Heeeelllllooo Fitness Friday! I am so excited about my Fitness Friday post today! First things, first! I ran the Carlsbad Half Marathon on Sunday (Race report coming early next week! Stay tuned!) and broke my long streak of not running. I’m finally bad to running and feeling fantastic about it! I’ve run two training runs since the half. I’m now on my way to training for the La Jolla Half in March. I’ve come a long way, from barely being able to run in January 2015.   My friend and I started running at 5:30 a.m. this week, in preparation of the […]

Fitness Friday New Year 2016 Edition

January 8, 2016
Fitness Friday

Welcome to the 2016 Fitness Friday! This has been such an exciting month! We had a busy month, yet it was very exciting! I got sick halfway through December, which put a huge damper on things. I had to fake it when I was feeling awful, however I eventually felt better and had no regrets. We went on vacation over Christmas, which should have made my diet and exercise a challenge. It really didn’t. I’ve been so committed to losing weight and getting healthy, I was able to overcome anything that looked like an obstacle! I just completed the 6th […]

Star Wars The Force Awakens

I have been so excited about the new Star Wars The Force Awakens! It has been far too long since the last Star Wars came out! When I found out I was going to be able to see the premiere before the movie hit the theaters, I was beside myself! Mr. Bear and Allie Kat were so very jealous, as I couldn’t bring a guest and the screening was TOP SECRET! I was so very curious about the new movie. I knew they were going to bring back some of the original cast and I was over the moon about […]
