Motivation Monday: Fashionably Sustainable

Happy Monday! I can’t believe it’s already the last week of August, this summer really has flown by. This past weekend was comprised of a lot of catch up consisting of errands, doing things around the house and an 8-hour training for Pilates (which I absolutely LOVED). My Friday post didn’t quite make it out on time so I am saving it for another week. Sometimes that’s just how it goes, right? One of the items on my to-do list this weekend was to get a pedicure…I know it’s pretty terrible but someone’s gotta do it 😉 While I was […]

Fit Friday: MSF Summertime Trail Mix

Friday is here! I am so ready for grilled pizza night and maybe even a movie? It has been incredible weather this week and I’m hoping to take advantage of it this weekend with some time at the beach and a pool party for a special little mermaid who turns one 🙂 I was thinking of healthy snacks that I could just grab and go since I will be teaching Pilates in the morning and going straight to an event afterwards. It’s hard to think of things that you don’t need to refrigerate or won’t melt to a gooey mess […]

Wellness Wednesday: Stretching Your Way to Healthy

Here we are mid week already and I don’t know about you but I wish I could hit pause for a quick sec and get ahead of my to-do list. When I have a couple of busy weeks back to back there is always a day where it hits me and I need a reset. Yesterday was one of those for me and I found myself just needing to slow down, incorporate some stretching and self-care. I felt so much better after just a five minute break on my mat stretching. It gave me the idea to share with you […]

MSF Travel: Island Hopping Greece, Part III

Happy Monday friends, I hope you had a restful/productive weekend and are ready to take on another week. I’m ready to take you on a little adventure and continue with my island hopping series in Greece. After the hustle and bustle of the city on mainland Greece, it was nice to jet off to Mykonos where we had some serious rest and relaxation. It was refreshing to get a mini break from the “go go go” we experienced, because unlike Athens where there is an endless amount of historical sites to see, the islands get a little less hectic and […]

Wellness Wednesday: The Skinny on Protein

Happy hump day! I hope you’re having a great week. Mine has been full of, you guessed it, Pilates. I am so close to concluding my teaching hours and loving every second of it. I had a few questions about protein and I thought doing a post would be beneficial to most of us. Protein has been a buzzword in the health and wellness industry and while it’s something we are all told to get more of, especially when working out and building muscle, the why and how is not always addressed. Well first things first, what is it? Protein […]

Fit Friday: Ch Ch Ch Cherry Milk

Woohoo we made it to Friday! Summers are always packed for me so the weeks just seem to fly by. I haven’t forgotten about a Greece recap post, it’s honestly just a matter of compiling the photos from 5 adults and sifting through to make some sort of cohesive summary-taking a little long, but I will get there! In the meantime, I wanted to explore a recent thing that I’ve found myself doing post-dinner that is not only a fit tip but also a wellness tip and I thought it may be useful for you guys too. I’m sure I’m […]

Wellness Wednesday: Dandelion Root Tea

How is it already halfway through the week? Summer days seem to go by so quickly, no? I’m excited about today’s post because I feel like it’s not only in reference to wellness but is also a fit tip. Who doesn’t want a skinny hack every now and then? I found dandelion root tea first out of curiosity and then again in a recipe for a detox tea. When I was in college a friend of mine who was French was always referring to how they grew up on dandelion greens and how they were full of nutrition. I thought […]

Motivation Monday: Manifest Your Dream Life

It’s the start to a fresh week and if you’re interested in this kind of thing, the last week for our current moon before we get a new moon on Sunday. Sometimes I do make connections with behaviors or patterns in accordance to the cycle of the moon, and fun fact the tides are also affected by the moon (also the sun, but not as much). The moon can be a powerful thing if you want to believe in its energy. That brings me to back to what I wanted to talk about for today’s Motivation Monday. I base most […]

Fit Friday: 4 Simple Rules for a Successful Detox

Happy Friday friends! I took a day off (you may have noticed the absence of a Wellness Wednesday this week) and I feel like I’ve been gone forever. I’ve missed you all! I hope you had a fantastic Fourth of July full of fun and festivities. If you’ve been following along on Instagram or picking up on my subtle sign-off’s on here you know I’ve been doing a bit of traveling. I was fortunate enough to go back East to see my family and then take a family trip to Greece. I plan on doing a full recap here so […]

Motivation Monday: The Importance of Independence

With a day to celebrate independence on the horizon I wanted to take a moment to reflect. While I could go on a tangent about the state of the world right now and how unity is SO important, I’m not going to. Instead I wanted to talk about something motivating to us as individuals. Something worth discussing because now more than ever, I feel like the world is becoming more unsure and even a little scary, especially with social media and how quick news seems to travel these days. I don’t remember being so uncertain about the future. This can […]
