Networking through Social Media vertical copy 2

Big news! Who would have thought that I would be speaking at the University of Alabama? I have had my own business for 12 1/2 years, and I started my blog 6 years ago. My business has taken many twists and turns but has always been rewarding, fun and connected me to fabulous new friends, acquaintances and amazing opportunities. I am honored to speak and share my story tomorrow night with the talented Faculty and Directors in Department of Advertising and Public Relations. I am also excited to announce a new extension of my business Alison Lewis Social Media. Thank you to everyone who has supported me over the years!

10 Friday Finds I’m Loving: Fitness, Fashion, Food

What’s on your top 10 list? Here are 10 “Friday Finds” that I am loving (and wanting). I wanted to share a little fashion, a little fitness and a little food, as well as the men’s brand “Peter Millar”. I have these new crop running/workout pants (above) from Lululemon, and they are my newest favorite workout pant! I want them in every color! Check out my other friday finds and let me know what’s on your list?

I haven’t worn perfume in years so I went to Sephora to find a new scent and fell in love with Philosophy Amazing Grace via Sephora. It has a clean, feminine scent that isn’t too strong.

These cowboy boots are too cool! Ariat Women’s Caballera Boot from Country Outfitter are calling my name.

I am hoping for a pair of riding boots this fall. Loving these Tory Burch Riding Boots via Bloomingdales.

I just found the perfect running glove for this winter. It’s the Adidas Elite II Running Glove. They are the perfect weight, fit, and they have reflectors for when I run in the dark. Also they have a touch screen finger. What else could a runner possibly want?

As I mentioned, Peter Millar is a my latest favorite mens brand. Their collegiate collection is great looking. For all of you Alabama fans, they had no lifestyle shots with “Alabama” on them, so forgive me.

I am craving this Nike Sportwatch GPS with Sensor. It tracks, takes splits, reminds you to run—even remembers your PRs. With a customizable display and both GPS and indoor tracking capabilities, it’s a watch you can take on the road, trail, treadmill or any other terrain.

How about any of this name ring? I want this! Enough said on this one.
My daughter has been doing a lot of research on cross body bags this season. Apparently they are the rage this year with the teens. We love this Cross Body Bag via Coach.
I just tried this new version of sprouted bread that’s my new favorite! Made with the same freshly-sprouted, certified organic live grains, the new Ezekiel 4:9® Sprouted Flax Bread showcases an abundance of sprouted flax seeds throughout. Providing an excellent source of Omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids, this bread has it all. See Food For Life  for more information.

BCS Football Championship Recipe: Spinach Dip with Greek Yogurt

Roll Tide! I can’t believe an Alabama team is (once again) in the BCS National Championship. You have no idea what it’s like to live in this crazy, passion-filled football state (Alabama and Auburn) where red jeans and houndstooth are at a premium. I have had many, many requests, phone calls and emails for appetizer recipes. Since everyone is trying to get their new years off right, I thought I would share this Spinach Dip with Greek Yogurt recipe which I recently made this on television for NBC 13 “Daytime Alabama”. It’s so easy, and it’s always a hit. It is perfect for any party, Superbowl, or weekend starter with the family. Here are a few other favorites appetizers ideas including  Chicken Chipotle Dip

 Rosemary-Chipotle Spiced Nuts

Lightened Up Mexican Layer Dip
