Collab: 6 Back to School Fashion & Fitness Tips

Hey guys! I’ve been a little off the Internet grid for the past couple of days. The husband and I celebrated our anniversary with a getaway to Miami Beach. I had all intentions to blog & take you guys with us via Insta stories but somewhere along that first night I put away my phone & decided that what I really needed to do was unplug and reconnect with my number one. And that’s just what I did!

Now I’m back, and brainstorming my next month of content. September marks 6 months of blogging and the kick off to my favorite season, fall! I’m totally #basic with my love for pumpkin spice everything, mad for plaid and puffy vests!

Today though I’m really excited to share my first collaboration with ya’ll!

I had the opportunity to write a piece for Mom Entreprenuer Alliance International’s monthly newsletter. This organization aims to bring a purposeful collaboration of inspiration and resource for Mom’s who work while raising a family. I am all for groups of women supporting one another and was really excited when this opportunity presented itself! This Mom-tribe has chapters in California and plans to expand out East. In my opinion, something we need locally and look forward to being a part of this growing community!

Tired of applying makeup to cover up (which was only masking the problem) I set off on a mission to get my skin rebalanced.  After almost two years of testing different products I finally have a skincare product line up I honestly can not live without. Today […]

If You Give a Girl A Birthday…

If you give a girl a birthday, she is going to give you a wish list. I might be turning thirty-six today, but I still love presents as much as I did when I was a little girl! I mean who really doesn’t love giving or receiving gifts??? At the top of my wish list is a barbell set! A and I recently started doing Les Mills Grit and BodyPump which are designed to do with barbells. We’ve been using dumbbells which have been fine, but I can see how a barbell will effect certain muscle groups throughout these workouts […]
