Happy August everyone! I love the start of a new month. I sit down to reevaluate and create new goals. Your 42% more likely to achieve your goals if you write them down constantly.

Work Goals for August

  • Increase blog traffic double from July
  • Work with a brand for a sponsored post
  • Get to 800 subscribers on youtube – Subscribe here to help me 🙂
  • Work on letting clients know I’m the new owner of Good Faith Casting
  • Get 1 new client for casting
  • Fill my marketing for actors workshop – You can sign up here

Personal Goals for August

  • Hit 1 new PR (personal record) in the gym each week
  • Do fast cardio 4 times a week
  • Spend more time with friends ( I get so consumed with work and blogging that I forget to go out and enjoy life)
  • Watch less TV ( I’m addicted to Netflix lol)
  • Maintain weight

The key to achieving and being successful with your goals is to have both big and small goals. An example, I have monthly, yearly and long-term goals. I also make all my goals realistic which is key for success! It would be crazy to say I want to make 6 figures blogging this year but saying I want to make $100 in September from blogging, now that is a more realistic goal.

Comment below and let me know your August goals!

Summers in Arizona are brutal! Where the triple digits are the norm and now with monsoon season starting so it’s also humid! This red off the shoulder top is lightweight and will keep you cool all summer long. Paring it with this adorable blue skort that adds a fun sporty feel to the outfit. When shopping look for cotton clothes as it is a breathable fabric that will keep you cool. In the high temperatures, I would stay away from jeans, go with a flowy dress or skirt. As always stay hydrated this summer to help curb your cravings.

Happy Saturday my boss babes!

My super awesome, feminist sister showed me this adorable crop top, and I fell in love with it (plus it is only $14 on Amazon)! Something you may not know about me is that I am extremely passionate women’s rights and empowerment. While women’s rights are a huge topic and making progress towards true gender equality may seem daunting, every person can make an impact! You may think to yourself: “I’m not a politician, what can I do?” Well it is SIMPLE, support women! 

Often, despite our best intentions, our first instinct is to not support other women. Instead, we compare ourselves with the women around us, rather than build each other up. Whether it is about appearances, relationships, careers, talents — these types of comparisons often bring about feelings of jealousy and create an unhealthy sense of competitiveness.

Here’s an example: I compete in bikini competitions where the other women are literally my competition. I could let this negatively impact my behavior towards them or myself. I could seclude myself backstage during a show and say “I’m not here to make friends, this a competition”. But instead, I choose to make friends with the women backstage and have been made many friends through competing.

I understand seeing other women as competition, especially in the fitness or blogging industry since it is so competitive. But before you are quick to judge, maybe think about reaching out and starting a conversation. If you do this, you will likely discover you have more in common than you think. And who knows it might lead to a beautiful friendship.

Share this blog with your best boss babes!

What to Wear to a Casual Weekend Brunch in Arizona

new blog pics bella hibbs

I love brunch, I mean who doesn’t really? Most of the year I’m on a strict diet plan so going to brunch is enjoyable because breakfast food can be modified for healthier options. Now I personally love wearing leggings to pretty much any event but when I’m meeting up with girlfriends for brunch I make an effort to look trendy.

In Arizona, it is way too hot to dress fancy for brunch so I opt for casual chic. This red off the shoulder top is casual and the color pops so well but is a nice thin comfortable material. To dress up this outfit I added some bold chunky white earrings with a yellow watch! Colors are a great way to make an outfit seem more dressy! My summer staple is white pants, I just have to be careful I don’t spill anything. Then to round off this outfit I went with keds.

My unlimited favorite healthy snack is watermelon! Watermelon is 90% water so it is low in calories and keeps you hydrated! Also, watermelons are packed with Vitamin A and C!  If you are looking or a high protein snack to bring with you, check out my youtube video! Going to a barbeque you have options to eat healthily, go for the protein to keep you full. You can also snack on veggies through the day! But life is about balance to enjoy a cookie or treat but all in moderation. 🙂

This red sexy one piece will make you stand out at any 4th of July pool party! And the best part is the price tag, only $21( and its prime so get TODAY and have for July 4th)! The bold red color makes for a perfect patriotic outfit! Now throw on some sunglasses and relax by the pool this holiday! I hope you all have a fun and safe 4th of July!

Tropical Cheeky Bikini That’s Perfert for Summer

Hey Everyone! Last weekend I had the amazing opportunity to compete at Fitness Universe’s national bikini competition in Miami, Flordia. The past 12 weeks I have been training hard to compete but I also wanted to enjoy Miami, FL in style!

IMG_3263

I am very happy to say that I placed 2nd at nationals and I found a tropical bikini set from NUERA swim that was perfect for Miami!

( Full competition video will be on my youtube channel late this week)

IMG_3244

Rob and I had the day after the competition to enjoy at the pool. Honestly, I was a little worried about buying such a cheeky bikini but I thought I should show off my booty gains that I worked so hard for! And I got so many compliments on my bikini. Check out my youtube channel for lots of booty workouts.

IMG_3252 (1)

The material is excellent quality and so soft! The bottoms don’t pinch your sides like other lower quality swimsuits tend to do.  I should note that the top does not have padding but don’t worry they have other styles with straps. Overall I just love how fun and sexy this bikini set is!

IMG_3237

Thank you to everyone who supported me, who sent messages, text, and phone calls wishing me good luck. I am truly so lucky to have such an amazing support system behind me. It wasn’t my time to win my pro card and that’s okay, I will still keep going! Fitness Universe you haven’t seen the last of me :)!  Again full competition youtube video will be up late this week!

Must Have Summer Outfit in Arizona

Shirt dress and sneakers: A classic summer trend that looks effortlessly cool in both the city & on the beach. I like to grab coffee with friends down in Phoenix and can look chic all summer long.

Bella Hibbs Photo 1

Shirt dresses are the perfect addition to any wardrobe. A great way to style this wordrobe staple is to add some chunky earrings. I chose to wear some earrings that were in the same color pallete of the dress, but I could have done a contrasting color. Check out these other earring ideas: Earrings 1 / Earrings 2

Bella Hibbs Photo 2

Another must have for summer is comfortable shoes and a pair of white sneakers can go with so many different outfits. Pick up a pair of white sneakers at Target or you can find some nice deals online like the ones below.

A colorful purse can add just the right amount of POP to any outfit, plus it can carry your cell phone, chapstick, and all of your other day-to-day items.
