Fave Fashion Blogs

If you asked me to name off some healthy living or fitness blogs, I could rattle off quite a few. I love reading blogs, especially checking out new ones, and have a lot of friends in the healthy living/fitness blogger world. Ask me about fashion blogs and I could rattle off… err, maybe 5? The […]

Creepy Crawlies

Shall I post the picture of the creepy crawly before or after the breakfast pic? Let’s do after… I don’t want you to lose your appetite 😉 Hi! Happy Friday! Hope your morning is going well <3 I woke up bright and early to bust out a TurboFire workout before starting the day’s to-dos. [No […]


Hi friends! How was your day? There’s nothing like coming home to a seksi Pilot, painting the Easter egg powder room. What a handyman. And goodbye forever, Easter egg 😉 Things are really starting to come together here! I’m excited to post some “before” pics, from when we moved in and the house was empty, […]

The Easter Egg

Hi friends! Happy almost-Friday! What are you up to this weekend? We still have a lot to do around the house before our weekend company arrives and housewarming party, and #1 on my list was tackling the Easter Egg: Our guest powder room… with purple walls and a green ceiling. I thought it would be […]

Smell the popcorn

Oh friends, what a day. Nothing bad happened or anything like that, but I am done-skie after work. It feels very nice to curl onto the couch with a hefty bowl of popcorn. [<—seasoned with nutritional yeast, garlic, chili powder and sea salt. Try it- so good] My schedule changes every day, and today I […]

What to stock up on?

As you guys know, I’m kind of a shopping fanatic. Even though I love to shop more than [almost] anything, I’m also a super savvy shopper and rarely pay full price, whether it’s through a sale, online deal or coupon. I’ve been doing the same thing with baby stuff. For example, our baby bedding (which […]

Focus On: Rest Days

Good morning! Happy humpday 🙂 Hope the rest of your week is smooth sailing 😉 When I posted the call for “Focus On” requests on Facebook, rest days was a popular one. When to take them, how they work, etc. Ask and ye shall receive, my friends <3 In our society, we’re taught to believe […]

New goat cheese lurve

Heyyyy 😀 How are ya? Hope you’ve had a great day so far <3 I loved reading your breaking up with trainer stories. Not going to lie- as a trainer, quite a few of them scared me. Definitely use your instincts when you’re paying someone to affect your health/fitness… if it’s not working, you’ll know. […]

Philly Outfit Picks

I’m the worst about packing clothes for a vacation. I go through all the “what if I need this too?” scenarios, end up totally overpacking, and then hating everything I brought with me. I’ve gotten more savvy over time by packing 3-4 shoes instead of 10, checking the weather, making lists and planning things out. […]

When to break up with your trainer

Morning friends! As much fun as we had in Philly, it feels so good to be home 🙂 Miss Bell almost shook her tail off her body last night. This morning she’s back to pouting, though. I’m hoping she gets used to the new place soon :/ It was also nice to have a kitchen […]

Plane Pet Peeves

Hi friends! Hope you’ve had a wonderful Monday so far <3 I’m sky blogging again- it’s been a long day of traveling, rude cab drivers, and on-the-go food so it will be nice to get home and back in the swing of life. We had a great last morning in Philly, though 🙂 After sleeping […]

The Great Diaper Debacle

When I first heard about the option of cloth diapering, I was an immediate fan. It’s better for the environment, it’s less expensive (disposables are no joke), and it feels better for the baby. From all around, it sounded like a win-win-win situation. I mentioned it to my mom and she was all about it […]
