B.A.D. Girl Playlist: Top Workout Jams

I have seriously realized the importance of a killer playlist to motivate your work out especially when you are doing cardio. So I decided to share with you all some of my favorite jams that I currently have on rotation while I am running my ass off on the treadmill! Warm Up Songs: 1. Daft Punk & Pharrell – “Get Lucky“ 2.

So donate some of your old slacks, button ups, blazers,etc. Make someone else feel just as (B)eautiful as you do everyday! Be (A)uthentic: Did you know that when you are on the phone with someone they can hear you smiling? Try it! People can …
