Hello, I’m Berniedette and welcome to Petite And Toned!
This blog is a way for me to share my adventures in fitness as well as to provide tips on how to lead a realistic (i.e. budget-friendly) and fabulous lifestyle.
Born in the Philippines and raised just south of San Francisco, I still call the Bay Area home. As a (half or) first generation Filipina-American, growing up was challenging in that I juggled two cultures which shaped me into the woman I am today.
I stand proudly at 4′ 11″, love all things girly, and am obsessed with good interior and fashion design. I like to mix my modern glam taste with a nod to tradition. I believe in affordable luxury and strive for that perfect balance between form and function.
I hope you find inspiration here in fitness, fashion, and “for the home”. I aim to share with you nuggets of my life that are helpful and relatable. Thank you for stopping by. I’m still new to this, so I hope you’ll stick around for a while!
If you’re ever in the Bay Area and want to work out or chat, please reach out to me at PetiteAndTonedBlog@gmail.com. I would absolutely love to hear from you!
