Lovey-dovey hearts

HI GUYS!!!

Happy ( almost ) Valentine’s Day!

Do you guys notice all the pinks, reds, and hearts in every store? LOL, it’s hard to miss.

Since it’s almost Valentine’s Day I figured it’s the perfect time to share some lovey-dovey heart items with you.

Side note… Once, when I was living at home ( I think it was about 2 or 3 years ago ) my mom looked around at all the stuff I had around ( my laptop, my laptop case, all of Minty‘s things ) and said with such disgust ( & in Farsi ), “I think I’m going to puke if you bring one more pink thing into the house.”

LOL. Whoops! ; )

So, when it comes to furniture and home design I lean towards neutrals ( usually white )… But when it comes to things, I love pink & I love hearts. LOL. Am I 5? ; )

Alright, enough about me… Let’s get into these cuties!

Okay, so obviously I had to find us some PJs with hearts on them—so perfect for Valentine’s Day! 😍 If I’m splurging on PJs, it’s definitely for these.

These are basically the grown up, “I’m into fashion but I make own rules” version of those bright red, heart-shaped sunglasses we all wore when we were little. Remember those? Definitely another splurge, but I’m always down to window shop ; )

These mugs are adorable ( !!! ) & even better, I love their message—the inside says, “love is love is love” all around. So perfect for Valentine’s Day & really every day. Makes for a great gift idea too!

I’m OBSESSED with my bkr bottles—& you most likely already know this. This one is especially great for Valentine’s Day. I also love this black / copper one & this baby pink / silver one. Super cute!

Okay, so I’m a big fan of writing things down on paper so I’m always kind of on the hunt for cute notebooks. This one is fun & personal because they print your name & initials on it, which I love. Also, Minted has great products. I love their quality.

ban.do is SO MUCH fun—this is the perfect dish to have on your nightstand. Doesn’t it just make you smile? : )

These pens are great! They’re cute but practical & also look great on Instagram ( let’s be real, that’s part of their appeal ; ) LOL ) But really, they’re great pens—I love writing with them.

Okay, how are you guys getting ready for Valentine’s Day?

If you’re looking for a quick and easy VDAY recipe ( something sweet ), definitely try these chocolate covered strawberries. They’re delicious & VERY easy to make.

<3,
Bita

My ONE Goal for 2017

[ Mug | Pretty embroidery on this maxi dress ]

[ Monogram mug | metal strawsweater ]

Can you believe it’s almost 2017? GAH!

I can’t believe it!

I stumbled across this video by Tony Robbins the other day and I feel like it’s spot on with how to create happiness and reach your New Year’s Resolutions / goals ( so obviously I have to share it with you. It’s too good not to! )

Basically, Tony says it comes down to creating PROGRESS by creating new HABITS.

And for me, specifically, it also comes down to FOCUS.

I’m really ( REALLY! ) terrible at following the principle of “The ONE Thing“. But I believe in it… & it’s something I’m working on.

So this year, I’m focusing on ONE goal and ONE habit ⇢ fitness, working out every morning.

If you want to have an awesome year ( & why wouldn’t you? ), DEFINITELY check out this video—think about one area in your life you’d like to make better & what habit will help you get there… Help you make progress. I think you’ll love the video!

Tony shares his 4 steps for making progress towards the end of the video so I made a little cheat-sheet for us ( below ) to refer back to / pin.

If you guys go through Tony’s process ( or even if you don’t ) I’d LOVE to hear what your 2017 goals are. LOL I’m totally serious… I’ve asked / talked about 2017 goals with my boyfriend & his sister so many times now, it’s kind of become a joke.

But, I REALLY want to know. I love this stuff! So shoot me an email ( bita@joyfetti.com ), comment below or on Instagram, or tweet me… However you’d like. I’d love to hear from you! : )

[ monogram mug | metal straw | white bralette | navy sweater ]

Switching gears for a moment, I want to give a shout out to tobi.com for sending me this super comfy, huge ( just the way I wanted, LOL ) navy sweater & this maxi dress ( both pictured above ).

I’ve been snuggled up in this sweater all day & probably will be for a good chunk of winter. I’m definitely packing it for our next Tahoe trip!

I feel like baggy sweaters are a staple during winter. Don’t you think? Especially solids. I love solids!

Okay… I’m going to bed so I can wake up early-ish ( LOL ) and go to the gym in the morning & run. Wish me luck ; )

HAPPY NEW YEARS!

I hope you have a safe & amazing NYE!

Bita

How to Find the Right Pair of Running Shoes for YOUR Feet ( + an Interview With ARM! )

 

Hi Guys!

This post has been a long time coming. For the past 2-3 years I’ve been running and doing all my workouts in Nike Frees, which was all fine and dandy until it was extremely painful to run in them.

Side note… I should’ve seen it coming when my friend, Katrina told me Frees are NOT running shoes. Point taken. I learned the hard way.

She also told me about A Runner’s Mind ( ARM ) and their super personalized process for fitting you into the right pair of running shoes for YOUR feet.

So about 3 months ago I FINALLY walked in and the experience was AMAZING & SUPER personalized!

Dawson, who’s the co-owner at ARM, helped me find the perfect pair of running shoes for my feet ( so basically I have no excuse not to run! ) and I’ve been running in them comfortably for the past 3 months

And, this is just a bonus, but I think they’re super cute!

Luckily for us, he agreed to do a fun lil’ Q&A just for JOYFETTI. Thanks, Dawson!

Let’s get into it…

Please introduce yourself: 

I’m Dawson, co-owner and footwear buyer at A Runner’s Mind. I’ve been with the company for about five years now, and I have been involved with the running retail industry for over 8 years. I have been a marathon runner since I was in high school.

Can you tell us about A Runner’s Mind? 

A Runner’s Mind was founded on a simple premise: helping people. We focus a lot on developing relationships with people who walk through our doors as much as we focus on getting people into the right shoes and gear.

Our original founder and owner, Monte Keleher, first opened the store in Burlingame when the local running shop next to the high school closed. It left such a huge void in the community that he decided to open A Runner’s Mind a few years later in August 2010. Ever since then, our involvement with the community and our focus on customer experience has created such a huge following that we’ve been able to open a store in San Francisco ( 2013 ), and more recently in Lafayette ( spring 2016 ). It’s been great! We’ll continue to focus on development in the next upcoming years.

What truly separates ourselves from our competitors is not only our expertise and knowledge, but it’s how fully we integrate ourselves in every community we’re in.

I love your fitting process! Can you tell us all about it?

Thank you! It’s called a gait analysis!

It’s so incredibly important for people to understand how they move to find the right type of shoe.

The gait analysis breaks down an individual’s biomechanics and alignment to find the best possible fit. Running requires so much coordination and energy so we find the best ways to reduce the stress and fatigue on the body to keep you running faster, stronger and farther.

What kind of things do you look for during your fitting process?

There are several things we look for during the gait analysis.

It all starts with understanding the individual; your goals, history of injuries, running volume, any cross training activities you do, and the surfaces that you’re typically running on.

From there, we like to test the individual’s mobility to understand if there are any asymmetries or discrepancies in the body’s alignment, and we conclude by watching the individual run. We conduct a video gait analysis—which means we film you running so we can slow the footage down and frame-by-frame we can see how you carry your weight from one foot to the next.

Our goal is simple: if we can understand any underlying muscular imbalances, we can prevent injuries from happening. It’s about pre-hab, not rehab for us.

If we can make your body stronger, you can run/walk stronger, longer and with less issues!

Why is it so important to be running in the right pair of running shoes?

Finding the proper pair of running shoes for your body and activity is so critical to keeping you healthy and out there with fewer problems. It’s hard enough to find the time to stay active, fit and healthy. Injuries only make it worse. We can prevent injuries from happening by making sure you have the right equipment so that means replacing your old, worn out running shoes frequently and investing in the right pair!

What are some indicators that you’re in the wrong pair of running shoes? What should readers look for?

There are lots of different types of indicators or red flags that may suggest that you’re in the wrong pair of running shoes. If your feet are going numb during the middle of a run—you may have the incorrect size or width. Other things like blisters, callousing, arch pain or general discomfort are easy indicators that you may need to replace your shoes fast!

Are those indicators different from what you’d feel if your shoes were just worn out? How can readers tell the difference?

Sometimes those indicators are different, but frankly, a lot of the times they can be the same. Worn out shoes may present itself in different ways too—like suddenly, your hip is feeling sore after your normal four or 6 mile run. An old shoe loses its support and cushioning, and that kind of wear and tear on the body can take its toll. We typically tell athletes that you should be looking to replace your running shoes every 5 to 6 months depending on an athlete’s efficiency and running volume.

I know you love marathons! What are some of your favorites? 

I do! You remembered! I absolutely love, love, love marathons! My absolute favorite marathon has to be the San Francisco Marathon. It’s my hometown! Plus it was my first marathon when I was eighteen.

Which marathon(s) do you recommend for first-timers?

A lot of people tend to recommend flatter courses for a first-time marathoners. For instance, the California International Marathon is a net downhill course in Sacramento! However, what’s the fun in that? A more scenic race is worth the challenge. I suggest checking out Big Sur in April or the Napa Valley Marathon!

What’s your favorite snack to fuel you before your run? 

My favorite fuel for a long run tends to be one of two things: 1. Generation UCAN which utilizes a modified corn starch for a longer sustaining fuel source or 2. Picky Bar (Ah! Fudge Nuts—it tastes like a brownie!!) + Banana + water!

Both of those combinations have led for some of my best races!

How about after?

Post long runs I always look forward to my Generation UCAN Chocolate Recovery Drink mixed with Almond Milk. It tastes a lot like chocolate milk with so much more protein!!

Anything else you’d like to share with the JOYFETTI family? : ) 

Yes! Definitely! It feels like a lot of people are intimidated to start running for one reason or another. Whether it’s because they think they’re not good enough to run or don’t seem themselves as runners or they’re not fast enough—none of that is true nor does it matter. Running for me is not about competition. It’s personal. It’s something I do for myself to relieve stress and take a break from the chaos of life.

Granted, it has some great benefits in keeping people healthy, but a lot of what running becomes is personal. So make it yours. Go for a run or walk. Take on the day!

Hi guys!

If you know me, you know I’m always cold.

My idea of perfect weather is when everyone else is dripping with sweat. 

So, as you can imagine, I’ve been pretty cold the past few weeks. Which is why I started looking for some cute, comfy socks to wear around the house.

Picture yourself snuggled up on the couch in some cute loungewear and a pair of these socks sipping on a hot toddy ( full disclosure… I’ve never tried a hot toddy but I really want to try one! Maybe I’ll make one this week. )

So I went straight to Target ( .com, LOL! ) because I feel like they always have cute, seasonal socks that don’t cost a fortune.

These are all $2-$6 ( !!!! ) LOVE IT!

The life hack every dog lover needs to know about…

The Life Hack Every Dog Lover Needs to Know About_joyfetti.com

You guys, the other day I was brushing Minty and I had hair ALL over my legs by the time I was done.

I like to wear black, and she has a lot of white hair—so it was as if I dumped a ton of dog hair all over my black pants… It was definitely noticeable.

I had to take photos for work and didn’t have any lint rollers ( I need to restock ) so I thought: TAPE.

Luckily, I had packaging tape in my desk drawer.

So I grabbed it, tore a piece off ( multiple times ) and patted the sticky side onto my pants. It took the hair right off—it was amazing.

I shared it with you guys on Snapchat when I discovered it but I wanted to share it with you here because it was super helpful.

So! If you’re playing with a dog, or grooming your dog, and you get their hair all over you and don’t have a lint roller… Just grab some tape. It works so well!

If you have a life hack I need to know about, please let me know below, or comment on Instagram / Twitter / Facebook—I’d love to learn about it!

Bita

4th of July Style Vibes

Fourth of July Style Vibes_joyfetti.com

What do you have planned for the 4th?

Hopefully I’ll be sipping some sangria in a bikini, and enjoying some shrimp ceviche & BBQ. Style-wise I’ll keep it simple with subtle hints of red, white & blue.

Here are a few looks I’m loving:

WHITE LACE UP PLUNGING BODYSUIT

How insane is the detail and plunging neckline on this bodysuit? I’M OBSESSED! Pair this with a high-waisted maxi skirt and baby blue nails ( or red nails, if you prefer ) & you’re golden.

NAVY FRANKIE’S BIKINIS TOP & BOTTOM

Last year I shared an American Flag bikini with you, but like I said, I’m going with SUBTLE this year ( LOL ), so this navy bikini is perfect! I love the detail on the top, and the bottoms have a little stitch down the middle in the back, which gives it a better fit, especially when you’re swimming.

If you’re going to a pool party, you HAVE TO check out this pool float. I feel like it goes with our theme of patriotic, yet subtle—it has the right colors… ; )

MAROON TIE DYE MUMU SARONG

Red tie-dye? YES! If you’re going to a pool party, I love the idea of wearing a sarong because you can wear with your bikini top—how great is that? So effortless & chic.

BABY BLUE STRIPPED WRAP DRESS

This is SO cute & you can literally throw it on & go. I love the deep v!

NAVY STRIPPED TIE-SIDE TANK TOP

I’m obsessed with stripes in general… But they’re also perfect for 4th of July. I’d pair these with cute cut-off shorts and aviators. Simple, comfy, cute!

Don’t forget to stay hydrated with a cute BKR bottle. This red / white heart one is perfect for the 4th.

xx,
Bita

Must-Haves for the Babe Who Runs Outside

Must-Haves for the Babe Who Runs Outside_joyfetti.com

Running is one of my favorite ways to break a sweat—& it’s kind of like therapy.

It’s one of the few workouts where I actually focus on my movement & get away from my thoughts / work / etc… If I’m having a bad day, I run. Lately, I’ve been getting back into running in the morning & it’s been AMAZING. There’s something about starting the day with a run that’s so freeing and energizing. I LOVE IT!

Are you a runner?

If you enjoy running outside, like I do, these items are for YOU! & if you’re not, maybe they’ll motivate you to give it a try. ; )

First up…

1. A MIRA BRACELET

I’ve been using Mira for a hot minute ( 2-3 days, LOL! ) BUT I’m already so in love with it. Hear me out…

Before Mira, I just used the Stepz app, but I wanted something I could wear that was more accurate ( i.e. tracked my steps while I worked out, moved around the house, etc… ) that didn’t make me cling to my phone ( because I do enough of that already ).

Mira syncs with my phone ( through their app ) and is so clean & easy to use. Isn’t it cute?

I put it on like a bracelet when I wake up & wear it throughout day. It’s been giving me a nice mental switch… When I put it on in the morning I know it’s time to tackle the day & when I take it off before bed I know it’s time to wind down & go to sleep.

If you’re a runner ( & even if you’re not )… Take a look at Mira. I have it in their Polished Rosé All Day color & I love it!

AND—BTW, it’s on sale right now. WOO!

2. BEATS BY DRE EARBUDS

Honestly, the gold color got me & their reputation sealed the deal.

These earbuds are GREAT for running. If you follow me on SNAPCHAT ( username ⇢ joyfetti ) you already know this. ; ) I always listen to Spotify or Pandora when I’m running so a good pair of headphones is VERY necessary. My run is 543482948394935 more intense & amazing when I’m listening to music while I run.

If you’re looking for new music,  follow me on Spotify to check out my favorite Spotify playlists and to listen to the JOYFETTI playlists.

3. ZELLA ‘LIVE IN’ CROP LEGGINGS

I’ve never been gung-ho about a pair of leggings until I tried these. I know it’s weird to talk about a pair of leggings like this… But they really SUCK YOU IN. So weird, I know… But it’s true. The fit is amazing, and so is the quality. I guess that’s why they called them “live in” leggings, you’ll want to live in them.

4. A BKR WATER BOTTLE

I tried running without a water bottle the other day & it just wasn’t as good. I got thirsty and sounded like a dog that’s dehydrated ( LOL, because I was dehydrated—it’s hot out. )

Plus, why not drink water when you work out? It’s a win, win…

I like the 500 mL bottle for running & workouts in general.

5. SUNSCREEN ( !!! )

This is a big one! When it comes to running outside ( especially during the summer ) one of the most important things to remember is to put on sunscreen.

5 years ago you wouldn’t find me preaching about the importance of putting on sunscreen, but times change. ( THANK GOD! LOL )

I’ve come to realize the QUALITY ( & health! ) of my skin is MUCH more important than the color. So no thanks to a little runner’s tan ( or really, burn ), I’m much more interested in keeping my skin smooth & healthy. You can’t replace your skin… Think about it.

One of my friend’s, Kheri ( she’s an esthetician ), recommended Osmosis Protect Sunscreen, and I love the feel & texture of it. It’s the only sunscreen I’ve tried thus far that I actually look forward to putting on. It feels like a quality skincare lotion. It’s that good. Plus, it doesn’t say this… But I feel like it’s kind of tinted ( kind of )—it doesn’t have that typical, gross, cake-y white color most sunscreens have. In the description it says it’s “sheer” & it totally is—& it smells good.

Unheard of right… A sunscreen that smells good? It does. Try it out & LMK how you like it. : )

I have the 30 mL bottle right now, but I’m planning to get the 200 mL when I run out. I put it on every day now.

6. CUTE SNEAKERS

I’ve been running in Nike Frees for yearssss now. I love that they’re cute and petite ( not too chunky like some sneakers ) & they’re comfortable for me. Find a pair of sneakers that work for you, and are comfortable and provide support, and be sure to get a new pair when they start to feel funny.

The lifespan of a pair of sneakers varies depending on the shoe and how often you use it, but generally experts say it’s time to get a new pair after 300-500 miles. I usually notice it’s time for a new pair after 6 months to a year. What about you?

BTW, for those of you who hate running, I use to hate it too, but now I LOVE it. It’s such an INSANE workout and it feels soooo good! I’ve been running for 7 years now ( as an exercise ) & let me tell you I definitely see a difference between my face & body when I’m running consistently. I look & FEEL way more lean.

PLUS, it’s one of the BEST forms of therapy for me.

LMK if you give it a try! : )

<3,
Bita

Airbrush Tanning: There’s No Such Thing as an “Organic” Spray Tan

Airbrush Tanning_There's No Such Thing as an %22Organic%22 Spray Tan_joyfetti.com

HI GUYS!

By now you probably know I always ( ALWAYS! ) read the ingredients on packages and buy organic produce whenever possible ( especially if it doesn’t have a peel! )

So when I started seeing “organic sunless tanning” all over Instagram it got my attention… & not just because I work in the industry—Evolv Tan ( the only heated airbrush tanning system in the world ) is a JOY Consulting Co. client—BUT, because I’ve had my fair share of spray tans & I equate “organic” with being more healthy… & I think a lot of people do, which is why some brands in the tanning industry are using the term. But they’re doing so wrongfully… Keep reading.

I researched “organic” tanning & what I found was really disappointing.

There’s no such thing as an organic spray tan.

This news release from Ecocert sums it up perfectly. Here are a few statements from the release:

“Ecocert does NOT certify ‘organic’ DHA (Dihydroxyacetone)” 

&

“any representation by a seller of tanning products that they use
‘Eco Certified (Eco-Cert) organic DHA’,
‘Organic Ecocert-certified DHA’
or other similar wording is
false and misleading to the consumer.”

YEAH. It is…

To put it bluntly, there’s no such thing as organic DHA, at least, not YET… & all these tanning companies that claim to be organic, contain DHA.

In case you’re wondering, I’m not getting paid to share this and it wasn’t requested by my client. I’m sharing this with you because it’s relevant… And it pisses me off. ( Let’s keep it blunt, shall we? )

Airbrush Tanning_There's No Such Thing as an %22Organic%22 Spray Tan_San Francisco, Marina_joyfetti.com

[ BKR water bottle | top ( similar ) | maxi skirt ( similar ) | Ray-Ban aviators ]

I hate when advertisers market unhealthy foods ( like cereal bars and snacks ) as health foods. And to me, this is the same marketing stunt, applied to beauty. And it’s not just tanning… We see it throughout the beauty and skincare industry. In a recent Refashion podcast, the founder of Fjordlife, Brittany Haavalsrud, shared just how unregulated the entire beauty industry is ⇢ a brand can market their product as natural as long as the product contains ONE natural ingredient—& that could be water… WHAT!?

Ridiculous, right? It’s absolutely nuts.

I’m not a fan of being lied to ( who is? ), so when I see a salon or airbrush solution marketing itself as being “organic” it’s a big turn-off, to me. What’s your take on this? I’d love to hear…

Bita

What to Pack for Punta Cana

What to Pack for Punta Cana, Dominican Republic_joyfetti.com

HI GUYS!

I hope you enjoyed your weekend. We BBQ’d a little & took Minty into the pool for the FIRST time ( exciting! )—there’s a short clip of her in the pool on her Instagram so if you missed it on Snapchatcheck it out.

I also put together this “what to pack for Punta Cana list.” I spent 5 days in DR a few weeks ago, and COMPLETELY overpacked ( x10 )…

There were 6 of us on the trip, and I was the only one who checked a bag. AND, I still carried more onto the plane than anyone else. It was THAT bad.

But… Now that I know what it’s like to spend a few days at a resort in DR, I’m sharing my tips with you.

ALSO, if you have general packing tips, please share! I need your help. LOL, THANK YOU!

Okay, here’s what to pack:

Bikinis ( lots of them )

You basically live in your bikini all day ( or at least we did ) so bring plenty. We’re off to a good start, aren’t we? HA! ; )

Baby doll dresses / strapless cover-ups

… To throw on top of your bikini. These are super easy and lightweight, which is perfect for DR. The weather’s really hot & you’ll be in your bikini most of the time, so stick with outfits that aren’t too fussy.

Maxi skirts & dresses

I love these for nighttime & dinner.

Crop tops

… To wear with your maxi skirt.  ( A maxi skirt + crop top is one of my favorite looks for spring / summer, in general! )

Flip flops

YES! So easy—slip them on and go. I recommend bringing one for the pool and another pair like these for nighttime.

Sunnies

Did I mention it’s hot there? ; ) Take your sunnies.

A mophie…

I never used a mophie ( much ) before this trip, but now I’m in love! Take one with you to keep your phone charged all day.

Dainty jewelry ( always )

Dainty jewelry is always a good idea. Plus it’s lightweight, which makes it easy to wear in the heat.

Sunscreen + beauty / skincare

Don’t go without sunscreen, OBVIOUSLY!

Other items I recommend…

+ aloe vera ⇢ I SLATHERED sunscreen on my face, multiple times, and still got a little burnt. Take aloe vera with you to soothe and heal any sunburns you might get. Fingers crossed you don’t need, but come prepared.
+ body oils & lotion ⇢ I took so many body oils & lotions, LOL. I LOVE this one body oil.
+ shampoo / conditioner / body wash ⇢ I forgot to bring these but I borrowed a friend’s on our last day & it was sooo nice to have while on our trip—the shampoo / conditioner / body wash there wasn’t that great, so if you’re particular about your hair products and body wash, bring them. Plus it was nice to have a familiar scent from home while on our trip. Weird? I thought it was nice! : ) 

I also sprayed myself with this toning mist all day, every day. Read more about it here.

Also, quick tip—if you’re packing a blowdryer / straightener / curling iron, consider leaving them at home. I brought all three ( surprise, surprise ), and I used my straightener ONCE, and I didn’t even touch my blowdryer or curling iron. You won’t need them.

Okay, have you been to DR? Anything we should add to the list? Let me know below.

Also, where are you going this summer… Any fun trips? Would love to hear!

Bita

Stripes for Spring & Summer

Stripes for Spring, Summer_side_joyfetti.com

HI GUYS!

Currently, drinking a lil sparkling wine, listening to music on Spotify, and crossing a few final things off my to-do list ( BTW, I’ve been loving the Do! app! If you’d like, I can do a full post on my favorite apps. Just let me know below. )

Speaking of wine, I have the name of the AMAZING sauvignon blanc I told you about the other day—it’s from Silverado in Napa Valley ( 2014 ). SO good! I can’t wait to have it again.

It’s been super hot here in the Bay Area, which I loveee, so figured I’d do a post on one of my favorite patterns for spring / summer.

Here’s the thing… If I was a South Park character I’d most likely be wearing skinny jeans ( or black yoga pants, LOL ) & a black top.

I DEFINITELY lean towards solid neutrals. But if there’s one pattern I can’t get enough of, it’s stripes!

Especially for spring & summer.

There’s something about it that’s so effortless and chic at the same time… Don’t you think?

Stripes for Spring, Summer_joyfetti.com

[ Top here—it’s on sale! ]

So, here are a few stripped items I’m loving for the season:

+ this double-v crop top that’s SO PERFECT for summer BBQs, pool parties & birthday parties. I LOVE this one!

+ this colorful, lightweight caftan dress you can easily throw on & instantly look put together!

+ these cute, carefree drawstring shorts

+ this flirty, yet office-friendly high waisted asymmetric skirt
