Halloween HIIT

Halloween HITT | Style In Shape

No tricks about it- a little halloween HIIT is the workout you need to do before treating tonight! Happy Halloween babes! My kids are so excited for tonight- and I am too! We usually have a few other kiddos over to join us for Beggar’s night. We have chili and cornbread before hitting up our hood. I picked these pumpkin placemats for the dinner table tonight. How cute are they? The little’s and I made a banner to hang up too. Add some apple cider mules and we are all set! I knew my day was going to be packed […]

Easy Go-To Sweatshirt

After months of searching I found an easy go-to sweatshirt that you NEED in your closet! I realized one day that I did not own any black sweatshirts. I am not even sure how this is possible since 70% of my closet is black clothing. It was also sorta a challenge to find one that I liked. A few months ago I bought a top labeled as a sweatshirt but when it arrived it was just a thick jersey, not exactly sweatshirt material. Over the summer I spotted a few but they were cropped. Cropped sweatshirts are cute but I […]

Life is better when you are laughing

A quick reminder that life is better when you are laughing! As we start this week that officially kicks off Hallowthanksmass season, I want to remind you to laugh as often as possible.

Just for fun I added to the mix of crazy to have a booth for the  school’s holiday bazaar. It […]

Book Review: Yoga Girl

A quick book review on Yoga Girl and the one powerful quote that helped me overcome personal fear. My husband purchased Yoga Girl as a little anniversary gift to me since I had just landed my new job opening at the YMCA. Ended up reading the whole book on the plane ride home from our anniversary trip in Jamaica! The book is composed of yoga poses, healthy recipes and inspiring quotes all along the author’s personal stories. I have not tried any of the recipes (I want to!) and I like how she gives a break down on how to […]

Protein PSL

With all things fall comes the pumpkin spice latte craze. My Protein PSL recipe is easy and one you’ll want to make over and over again! The very first Pinterest recipe I ever made was my own pumpkin spice latte. I was so excited to make my own syrup infused with pumpkin puree, clove, and cinnamon. It became a staple I made every fall! I do not drink as many sugary coffee drinks anymore but I am still #TeamPSL. I wanted to create a version that was a little healthier and possibly a meal replacement. Just by adding a few […]

Yoga Flow: Core Power

A thirty minute yoga flow that focuses all on that core power! Read on to get the full sequence! I’ve casually dropped here or there that I am now teaching a yoga class at my local YMCA twice a week. I am having so much fun leading my small class through vinyasa style flows. I want to start designing and sharing some yoga for you all too since most of my readers are not local! Funny thing, I gave my first try at recording a flow. Babes, it was terrible! The angle was off and my voice did not carry. […]

LC Bell Sleeve Tee

Super soft cotton and dramatic sleeves- this LC bell sleeve tee is a must buy this season! Kohl’s Instagram got me after a few post of Lauren Conrad in this crew neck bell sleeve top for her cozy fall collection. Her posts were always so cozy and who isn’t a fan of cozy in the chillier months? I threw this dramatic sleeve crew tee on with a pair of AG Prima cigarette pant, oversized plaid affinity scarf and loafers for an afternoon at the outlet mall. Need to embrace the few days of the season that it is warm enough […]
