Anna's Morning Routine

A solid AM routine can really set the tone for your day and set you up for success. We have been dialing in our mornings to maximize time and promote health. Here’s exactly how it goes down for each of us every day and WHY you should pick up some of these hacks for your AM. 

Reality is I may click snooze a few times before getting up (“bad” habit) working on it, but in all honestly not always as bright eyed and busy-tailed jumping out of bed in the AM.

DIY Spray Tan

Who doesn't love a good Tan? I was all about fake baking as a teenager. It was a bad, bad habit, but despite how bad I knew it was I wouldn’t stop. It took a friend with a melanoma scare from a tanning bed that made me promise to stop I finally got out of the tanning bed routine. I love worshipping the sun and still enjoy being in the sun and getting some Vitamin D. Now I am aware of the damage to my skin that I was doing basking away in the sun while simultaneously aging my skin. One thing you can’t deny is the accelerated aging of your skin from exposure to sunlight. Elders would always tell me about the dangers of  tanning and the sun and now I wish I would have listened. Now I lather up ORGANIC SPF and layer clothing for protection + hat and enjoy the summer heat. 

What's a girl who wants to protect her skin, but loves a great tan to do? Add a new weekly ritual of self spray to get me through! A great form of self care is boosting your confidence with a fabulous organic spray tan!

Moving On With The Full Moon

This is a short and sweet little post about letting shit go that no longer serves you. Also, I kind of really see this as a part two to my New Year’s Intention post. At the start of this month, actually 14 days ago to be exact, I talked about setting your intentions for the New Year.

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!

The Easiest To Peel Hard Boiled Eggs Ever!!!!!!

So if I had to pick my one go to power house snack hard boiled eggs would be it. It is a grab and go protein that is super healthy and low calorie. Every Sunday I make about a dozen eggs so that I have a convenient protein snack on hand throughout the week. Often I’m really basic with how I eat them and I just sprinkle them with a little truffle salt and pepper and just bite right into them. When I want to change it up I whip up a batch of egg salad with the eggs.

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.

DIY Custom Denim

Denim is back and RAGING all this summer and continuing through Fall. I am not the biggest jeans girl, but love mixing up my printed bell bottoms with a denim top. Lots of brands are capitalizing on this denim trend and of course charging way too much for a denim shirt or jacket.

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.

Live Intrepid: A year in Review

A little over a year ago in the Fall of 2015 Gigi and I first had the idea to collaborate on a blog together  and last July we launched IntrepidHearts.com. We did a lot of brainstorming to come up with the name of our brand and finally landed on Intrepid Hearts. While we have a lot of differences (mainly our height) we share a lot of similar traits, interests and sense of style (we keep buying the same items from our favorite brands with or without knowing the other purchased it as well) Where we really align is our fearlessness and adventurous spirits that keep us exploring deeper within ourselves.

Stock Tank Pool

AKA hillbilly hot tub. Yes I went for it. I was sitting in my backyard, sweating in the sweltering Denver DRY summer heat taking a little scroll through instagram and a sponsored post for the Hey Wanderer blog popped up on my feed. They had a video "how to" of setting up a stock tank pool. What was this and why had I not heard of it?

Make your cleanse a cake walk...minus the cake

Gigi inspired me to start a thorough Spring cleaning from within. I attend the monthly Green Lodge Goddess gatherings organized by The Stoned Housewife and Luminous Collections and it brings together total babes mainly in the cannabis industry. I will have to post more about the power and connection these meet ups bring, but in April one of the women who spoke there was talking about how connected we are with the earth and it really resonated with me because I had been ferociously cleaning under the Taurus new moon and noticing that I feel best when I am following along with the stars and eating what is fresh and local that comes from the earth’s natural, seasonal cycles. So naturally spring is a time for detoxifying plants and cleaning all around and within.
