Peloton Bike Review - 100 Rides Later!

I am so excited to finally give you a review of one of my favorite things to do - ride my Peloton bike! 

I have had it since end of May last year, and this week I finally hit my 100th ride milestone!  With that said, I feel like I can now give you an insider's look at the Peloton Bike!
PS - if you are wondering why it took so long to reach my milestone, it is because in the Summer I ride outside!
FYI - this is not a paid review. It is my own opinion on a bike I love!

Spring Table Setting

Spring is one of my favorite times of year.  I realized as I wrote that I say that for every season/month! Except January. 
I thought this Spring table added a bit of cheer... I don't know about where you are living but here in California our flowers are blooming!

Oscar Fashion 2017

The only thing I care about the Oscars is the fashion.  
I love the gowns that the actresses wear and I think it is because they are extremely nice handmade textiles! 

Our first look is this Givenchy dress worn by Emma Stone.  The fringe skirt looked beautiful as she moved.  Although to be honest, I felt like she played it a little safe - I was hoping for something a little more adventurous from Emma Stone given her Oscars look from 2015.
