There's something about a Chanel bag that is timeless, eternally on trend and an investment most women (and men) dream of. Purchasing one of these purses is like a rite of passage that I have yet to experience myself. While I wait patiently to invest in one (fingers cross it will be a BOY Chanel bag or one of those insanely chic minaudières) I will appreciate the bags from afar on you haute dolls and gent.

Haute Body Report: FITSTAR 10 DAY Back To School Challenge!

Les Petites, it's time to get your bodies HAUTE for the Fall with FITSTAR's 10-Day Back-to-School Workout Challenge. Maybe it’s just the sobering reality that summer is ending,  that puffy coats will soon be replaced our wardrobe of  nothing-to-hide-behind swimsuits, crop tops and dresses but everyone—myself included—usually puts on a few pounds once the leaves start to fall and unlike the past years we now have a reason to be on a workout bender (and gain incentives too!). The 10-Day Back-to-School Workout Challenge runs from August 22nd to the 31st and is led by renowned former NFL tight end Tony Gonzalez. To begin the program, download FitStar Personal Trainer for FREE from the App Store and follow along with the workout plan detailed above. There will also be daily workout reminders on the Home Screen in-app.

One lucky Challenge participant will also be eligible to win a “New Gear for a New School Year” prize pack featuring a year of FitStar Premium, FitStar t-shirt and $150 gift card to Nike! For more details see the Facebook page after the Challenge.

So Les petites, we have our contingency plan on staying fit this fall and it's FITSTAR!
