Self Care Sunday: Alpaca Slippers

One time I went to an Alpaca marketplace in Denver and it turned out they not only had alpaca wares it was a full on ALPACA CONVENTION! Ever since I have been moderately-severely OBSESSED with alpacas. LIIIKe they are the fluffiest things on the planet. They are so adorable and the best part is they are SUSTAINABLE.

I was listening to the Skinny Confidential podcast this past week with guest Dr. Mona V and one of the first questions Lauren asked Mona was, “what are some of her most essential tips for Self Care?”

Self Care Sunday: Facial Gua Sha

Glowing Skin is always in. I definitely am not blessed with the best skin and have struggled with hormonal breakouts forever. AND now on top of balancing that out I also have to combat signs of aging and damage that was done to my skin in my teenage years. GUILTY of tanning beds. (WHY!? )

DIY Cucumber Rose Eye Masks



There are so many reasons why I love these Cucumber Rose Eye Masks but the number one reason is that I know exactly what is in them! Have you ever looked at what is in your masks before? Don't bother because you won't even be able to read it = chemicals! Something that is nourishing for your skin should not be filled with chemicals.

Hangover RX

After a week long holiday hiatus we are back and kicking of this New Year’s with what I feel is a pretty appropriate post given the day. As most of us are this time of the year, I am coming off a week long spree of festivities. This holiday season was particularly amped up for me as I had my cousin’s wedding this past Friday. With all of the celebration going on around me I can not exactly claim that I was at my healthiest.

Magic Potion: Monk Oil

I found this oil at the Moon Juice shop in Venice beach and decided to give it a go. As you know I am constantly converting everyday products to more natural, organic and closer to the earth alternatives. I love organic oils that replace beauty products and these ingredients were top notch (most products contain toxic, cancer causing ingredients). This oil can be used as a perfume, under your makeup as a moisturizer, blended with your foundation, or anywhere you use oils, I just slather it on!

Self Care Sunday: Silk Pillowcase

Beauty sleep is real. I recently decided to level UP my beauty sleep game with a silk pillowcase. I had been hearing lots of buzz about silk pillowcases and decided to see what they were all about.

Say No To Silicone In Your Bodycare

In case you haven’t heard we partnered with WholeFoods to do a bit of product testing this past month. Rather then just write a product review I thought this would be a great opportunity to also do a little educating about the different ingredients used in conventional body care.

A Sunday Girl Date

I am a product of an all girl, private, catholic school. I was always surrounded by girls but I never actually had like my own little girl gang until I reached my mid 20's. I have had plenty of great friends both male and female throughout the years, but I always felt a bit more like one of the guys.

Self Care Sunday: Why you should try a Coffee Enema

If you’re into health and wellness you probably have heard the word enema thrown around or colon cleanse. There are a few different things you can do to really clean out the large intestine. And let me just say don’t knock it until you try it. Gigi has done full on colonics and raves about it. I am looking forward to trying her recommendation now that I’m back east.

Smudge Stick DIY

I have been all over our Instagram story as of late smudging away. I feel like at this point in time most of you know what smudging is but in case you don't I will give you a brief rundown.......The burning of sage is one of the oldest methods of energy cleansing. Today we mostly associate this act with the Native American culture however, the burning of herbs and resin for cleansing is common practice shared amongst many cultures.

Self Care Sundays: Kundalini

Keeping up with a regular yoga practice, kundalini practice and meditation practice seems like a lot in this fast paced tech heavy world we live in now. But think about how many TV shows you have seen every episode of or have binge watched. During one episode of game of thrones you could have done yoga, kundalini and meditated. It's just about priorities and for a lot of people spirituality isn't at the top of the list. Which is fine, YOU DO YOU, but just imagine a world where people did slow down and take time to look inward. It makes reflecting your love for yourself onto others a lot easier.

Anna's Yoga Challenge Recap

After reading Gigi's Art of Attention yoga Challenge blog post I was immediately inspired and motivated to connect back to my yoga routine as well. We both are certified yoga instructors and have been completely immersed in yoga at some points in our lives day dreaming of a place where we could do yoga, share yoga and live yoga every day.

Gratitude Journal

Being in gratitude for the not-yet manifested informs The Universe that you know that what you desire already exists, and puts you at the right frequency to receive it.

We all fall victim to it from time to time those days when we just fall into a downward spiral of pity. The end of the weekend can totally churn up some weird negative shit for us.

Self Care Sundays: At Home Facial

I am 27 and just this year started understanding how to take care of my skin. I never really was taught how to properly take care of my skin. Kids these days are so fortunate to have the unlimited resources of the internet as a reference point when they don’t have that older sibling to ask questions to…. and not look like a scrub with blue eyeshadow and black eyeliner...while they are going to the tanning salon every day.....

Self Care Sundays: Give Yourself The Gift Of Yoga

It is easy for us to make excuses and come up with reasons why we can’t make time for ourselves. I’ve talked about how I've let life get away from me at times and as a result let my hectic schedule interfere with necessary practices of self love. I know this to be a problem that most of us struggle with due to our hectic lives and overflowing schedules. Recently, I posted about a challenge I proposed to myself as well as all of you to cultivate a more regular yoga practice.

Self Care Sundays: Write

Happy Sunday! Welcome to our new feature #SelfCareSundays where we will spotlight a ritual, product or tip to add to your self care routine. In my personal experience the older I get the more in tune with myself I've become. Recognizing who I truly am and nurturing that soul has become something to prioritize, making sure I "water" and nourish myself for my own personal growth. In this particular new year I have been more aware of taking care of myself and making sure I set aside time or do things throughout the day that bring me joy and are good for my soul.

Crystal Energy

I have been fortunate enough to grow up being exposed to these mystical elements from the earth and have always been fascinated by them. The more I incorporate them into my yoga and meditation practices the more I believe in the energy they produce. One of my favorite videos is of the crystal kid who creates a crystal GRID based off of "where the crystals tell him to place them" and to charge up the crystals. It's #GOALS.
