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.

Afternoon Energy Boost that's Healthier than Coffee

Gigi and I love whipping up Dandy Blend Lattes. I personally don't drink coffee although I love the taste I am way too sensitive to the caffeine. A perfect alternative is Dandy Blend tea it gives an energy boost like caffeine, without the crash and anxiety. Plus it tastes reminiscent of coffee from the roasted herbs and roots that make up the blend.

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.

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.....

Vitamin D deficiency and Breast Cancer Risk

As we transition from the fiery season of Summer to the Harvest and abundance of Airy Fall the days grow shorter and the sunlight (for most of us in the Northern Hemisphere) is limited. Limiting our exposure to sunlight also limits our exposure to Vitamin D. It only takes 15 minutes of unprotected sunlight to build up your stores of Vitamin D.

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.

Consider This Amino Acid Before Using Probiotics

Ugh I’ve done it again! Over the last two months my stomach has become increasingly hostile. It all started with severe bloating after meals, which I’m pretty sure came from gluten contamination dinning out one evening. I knew something was totally out of wack with my system, but I decided to ride it out and see how my system would recover on its own. Hmm ….well I should know better then that by now, but I’m kind of hard headed at times.

Road Trippin' Part I

Road Trippin! It can be fun, it can be boring, it can be breathtaking, it can be LOOOONNGG. I have made my way back and forth across the country and experienced all of the above. Yet I still jump into the car at any opportunity for some cross country adventures. The first time I drove across country from California to PA and took a slow southern route visiting friends and family along the way. It gave me a taste for the west coast and shortly after I ended up moving there! Meaning I had to get in the car again this time from PA to CA and we took the most direct route straight across the county... not so fun that time around.

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.
