Behind the Blogger: Part 1

Hi loves! Since I'm trying to get back to blogging regularly after a long hiatus, I thought it would be fun to dive a little more into who I am as a person. Especially since times have changed a LOT since I was blogging regularly - I have grown and evolved as a person, and life has changed drastically. Of course, there are so many things that have remained the same, as I am still the same person at my core. I also believe there is more than meets the eye, or shall I say, social media channels. Most of you who know me probably immediately think of health and fitness when you see or hear my name. While health and fitness is one of the biggest parts of my life, it isn't the only part and it isn't my only passion. There is more to me than … [Read more...]

Ignite Your Fitness – Puma Ignite XT

I think you all know my obsession with workout attire. I'm such a sucker for cute & comfy workout clothes, especially since I work from home that is basically all I wear. I'm either dressed like I'm going to the gym, or I'm going to the gym. ;) Not only that, but when look cute in the gym, I perform better. Call me crazy, but it's true! If I feel uncomfortable or don't like what I'm wearing, then that's what I focus on instead of my actual workout. Look good, feel good, perform good! I was lucky enough to be chosen to work with Puma for their forever faster campaign, where they focus on constantly innovating to produce new standards for fitness and fashion. Puma kindly sent me a pair of leggings, a sports bra, t-shirt, and most … [Read more...]

What’s In My Gym Bag?

I normally go to the gym with 2-3 things: my phone, my amino cocktail, and my body. Simple and effective. I never brought a gym bag for that reason, but also because I never had one! I was sent the Fitmark athletic tote, and I.am.obsessed. So glad I finally have a gym bag, and not to mention it's super cute. And huge. It's basically my own Mary Poppins bag. Without further ado, here are my gym essentials: Amino cocktail with creatine, glutamine, BCAA's, and water with flavor enhancers in my slap nutrition shaker. Water Enhancers Protein Bar Tripod Fanny Pack Ankle Strap for the Booty Jump Rope Vibrams Deodorant Hair Spray Hair Tie's Headphones   What's in your gym bag? Must-have thing … [Read more...]

Clothing Haul on a Budget

Want to know a secret? I secretly HATE shopping. Actually, it's not a secret, but it is true. Don't get me wrong, I love getting new things but the actual act of trying on a bunch of clothes and then spending money.. bleh. Not only that, but I usually end up buying only workout clothes. Then I complain that I have no real life clothes ;) However, I recently went shopping and was super happy that I ended up with only ONE pair of workout pants, and actually got cute clothes on the cheaper side! I am such a budget shopper when it comes to clothes, and Kohl's is like my favorite store. You can usually get cute stuff for less money than you would normally spend. And no, this isn't a sponsored post hah. Since it's summer out, the thought of … [Read more...]

Bold Pink Lip Color

There used to be a time where I hated the color pink. This was also the phase where I hate dresses or anything girly. I went through a little tom-boy phase when I was younger, all I cared about was going to the skate park and being a little tough girl. Oh my, how times have changed. Shortly after, I LOVED the color pink. Things completely changed, and I was obsessed. This tends to happen often - if I hate something I really hate it. If I love it, I'm obsessed. One extreme or the other is my type of personality. Not only with the color pink, but I went through a period where I knew nothing about make-up, fashion, or anything girly for that matter. Now? You guessed it..I LOVE IT. I am certainly no expert, but I'm learning every day. … [Read more...]

Currently

I saw this survey on Colleen's blog, as well as a few others, and I always love reading it! I like seeing what people are loving and are into at the moment, especially since things are always changing. Isn't it crazy how much can change in such a short period of time? I think back to things just a couple months ago, and they seem like they were so long ago. Trippy. Anyway, before I get off onto a tangent (as usual), here are my currents: Current Book(s): Just started reading Intuitive Eating. Been wanting to read this for a long time - so far, so good! Current Music: Obsessed with this song lately. Current Nail Color: French gel manicure that's almost 2 weeks old. Still going strong! Current Drink: Coffee … [Read more...]
