Must Have Pants for Summer

I am in love with these absolute must have pants for Summer! Picture getting ready for waterfront cocktails after a long day at the beach…aaaaah. Your hair is all salty and windblown, your skin is tan and smells like tropical sunscreen 🙂 What should you wear? Something cute and casual…a sundress is one obvious possibility, but growing up by the ocean, I know all too …

Noli Birds in Color

Yesterday I posted the above pic on FB and IG, sporting one of my favorite pairs of leggings – my black and white Noli birds. I had to follow up on the blog with some details for you though, because now these bad ass birds come in color – yippee! I got the black and white ones last September and have worn the hell out …

Aerial Yoga Thoughts & Pics

I posted a pic this past Saturday on social media of me at an aerial yoga class and thought I’d share some thoughts on it in case anyone’s considering trying it! When I got home and showed these pics to my husband, his response was “looks silly…and fun.” After being a little taken aback by his reaction, I realized he was actually right, but it’s …

Barre Bash Recap

This past Thursday I hosted a somewhat impromptu Barre, Beauty & Bevies event. It was a blast, so today I’m sharing some pics and details! I’ve found that it’s such a fun concept to mix lifestyle with style, health with beauty, activity with shopping. I tried it out for the first time last summer when I hosted a friend’s Beautycounter launch party that started with …

HAPPY10 Sale Alert

Lucky for us Peach just happened to announce a super sale yesterday, the very day before I planned to post about my new absolute favorite gym/casual wear top – yippee for you, haha! Like many moms out there, I spend a lot of time in gym clothes. I generally exercise in the morning, but then depending on the day’s schedule, don’t get to mix a …

Kundalini Yoga, Exercising Your Soul

My sister has been into Kundalini Yoga for a while now. She goes to trainings and workshops, retreats and practices on her own at home. We talk all the time, so I’ve always had a kind of understanding or vague expectation what it was all about, but had never myself tried Kundalini yoga. I’m more of a sweat my a** off at hot vinyasa type …

Crossing Boundaries

Because many of my readers are moms and athletes, I feel compelled to share a recent experience I had coaching my son’s basketball team. If you go back to one of my very first posts, I explore the feeling that many moms experience…a feeling of a loss of personal identity. When you become a mom, people see you as just that, a mom, which is …

Yoga At Home

I’ve loved hot vinyasa for years now, but lately I’ve really had the urge to work on all the sh*t I can’t do…of which there is a ton, haha! And because I find that class is not a great place to practice new moves (too busy keeping up with the flow), I’ve taken to practicing at home more often. I’ve been doing 35-45 min. videos …

New Year, New Leggings

I started out the year ordering myself a few new things from Noli Yoga – https://www.noliyoga.com/ – and if anyone’s looking for some funky, unique leggings, then definitely check out their stuff 😉 My sister and I discovered Noli this past fall and each got our first pair. The Black Bird Leggings for me, which now come in pink as well, and which I compliments …

New Year, New Yoga Goals

So before any super amazing yogis out there critique my pose, just know that this was my first ever attempt, haha! I’d seen the pose online here and there and it always caught my eye. So as my friend and I were playing around with different poses over the weekend (in The Pittsburgh Gentleman’s home gym), I figured, why not give it a try?! My …
