Watch Out Spider-Man

Watch out Spider-Man! I don't know how I forgot to post these stunt pics from my last New York City photoshoot while home visiting. (This was pre baby bumping!) They are so fun and funny! I fit right in with all the buskers and crazies in Washington Square Park doing acrobatics under the arch... jumping off the fountain... and spiderman style climbing light posts! If you like the all black look that helped me blend in with the buskers.... scroll down below.... head to toe Nike, Nixon, and Lululemon!

Leaping Beyond Yoga in Adidas Originals

Those shoes tho!! Bright purple ADIDAS Gazelles! ADIDAS Originals. I used to have a pair of Sambas in middle school that I wore like a champ. My BFF and I would switch out the shoelaces with crazy color laces about every other day. Am I showing my age? As for the space dye gray and black crop top... I recently discovered the brand, Beyond Yoga. Actually now that i think about itl... I have just recently been getting better about consistently practicing yoga. When I lived in NYC I would often go to a hot yoga place called MODO Yoga in the West Village. But that was only a few times a month. MOGA is awesome. Now that I'm living in Bondi Beach/Sydney I practice at Yoga by the Sea, Body Mind Life, Dharma Shala, and YogaBar. Definitely recommend all of them! Scroll down to shop the look!

Puppy Lovin: Matching Activewear

When you love your dog so much... You start to look alike... AND... Dress alike!!! I have never had a matching doggie outfit for Baxter and me. In fact he's only ever had one jacket that he would wear in New York City on snowy days that were 19 degrees F or below! But this is just too cute! Actually, I think his jacket is kinda hard core and the mesh sports bra and mesh panel running tights have a sexy look. We look like we're about to go to a bike rally, hot club, or cool concert! OR have a good workout here in Australia! The outfits are from a brand called Active Creatures. Check em out if you want a matching look. Or check out the black mesh goodies I've picked for us humans. ;-)

New York City Stunts, Tanks, and Tights

Stunts, tanks, and tights in New York City! I lived in the West Village four of the five years I worked in New York City. Which meant almost everyday (that I wasn't traveling) I walked my Baxter Bear to Washington Square Park. It's an iconic spot, always bustling with something interesting. From the buskers to the human statues... to the pigeon tamer... to the bubble lady... to the chess players... to the political activists... to the locals walking their pups or pushing their strollers... it's a fabulous place for people watching. And because it's so unique... I didn't look a bit out of place jumping from the fountain or climbing the light poles during this photo shoot! ;-)  I believe it is the best neighborhood in Manhattan. Best for me anyway! I'm wearing one of my go-to fitness outfits in this look. The strappy, blue, fitted tank is by Lululemon. So are the black compression tights. The aqua watch is by Nixon. The black and fuchsia kicks are by Nike. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to shop the looks... all handpicked by me!

Purple Confetti Dance Crop

This purple confetti dance crop is da bomb! Sometimes activewear prints can be off-putting if you ask me... But The Upside has some memorable florals in particular that I think really meet the mark. PHOTO: Anna Kooiman, North Bondi, Lyndon Marceau

Cozy and Looking at 'The Upside' in Trendy Gray Sweatshirt

Isn't it nice to just CHILL! As the temps are heating up in the USA they are cooling down in Australia. I'm still getting used to the opposing seasons! Fortunately... very often after a chilly night... the sunshine warms up during the afternoons and it's back to short shorts and tank tops! I'm really digging the patches on this trendy gray sweatshirt by The Upside. The leggings are also by The Upside. The pink tassel/fan earrings are from the Bondi Markets here in Oz.
