Friday Favorites – 06.01.18

Welcome to the first edition of Friday Favorites! I’ve decided to start sharing a weekly post that features 3 things, products or activities that I’m currently loving. I’ll give a brief run down of what they are and why I love them. Easy enough right? These posts are going to be meant for quick reading and to be a simple way to share some of the products or activities that I use. Alas I will…

Skillet Baked Apples + a Lovely Weekend

This weekend was beautiful. Though originally forecasted for clouds and rain, there was nothing but clear skies from Saturday Morning to Sunday Night. We spent hours working on our yard on Saturday, but it honestly didn’t even feel like work. I’m not sure when it became enjoyable to me, but right now I am so into being outside and learning how to garden. I think this falls into line with a recent break through in…

10 Ways to Deal w/ Stress + Why That’s Important

Stress. We know all to well what that looks, sounds and feels like: some more than others, and at different periods of our lives more than others. While there are people who do a great job at not letting stress get the best of them, there are also many who are not as good at dealing. We have never ending to-do lists, deadlines at work, a house to clean, errands to run, kids to wrangle,…

#CleanEats and Health Food FOMO: Two Ways Social Media Can Mess With Your Mind

Let me paint a scene. You wake up feeling great. You eat breakfast, have a good work out, get ready for work, and then while  sipping on coffee you browse through instagram. You start seeing pictures of dreamy colorful foods, things you don’t have, places you’ve never been and people with your #fitnessgoals. You may start to feel a bit envious. Before you know it, your mood starts to drift southward. “Should I be eating…

Four Home Fitness Subscriptions to Consider; Because We Don’t All Love the Gym

Ive mentioned it before and I’ll say it again: The gym just isn’t for everyone. Whether you are too busy to make it to yet another place during your day or you just truly don’t like it, its okay to not use the gym for your exercise. I once lived by daily attendance to the gym, but now I truly prefer to do without. Over the past year and half, I’ve realized my favorite modes…

Girl, It’s just a Dress.

I debated for a couple of days on whether or not I would share this; but I think it’s something worth writing and my hope is that it resonates with someone else out there. About a month ago, I received a phone call informing me that my wedding dress had arrived. I couldn’t believe it had nearly been a year since I had ordered it. So this past weekend I went down to visit my…

Adaptogenic Matcha Latte

Have you tried Matcha? What about Adaptogens? Have you heard of adaptogens? While 80 percent of the time I believe in wellness by means of simplicity, sometimes I do like to enjoy some of the extra bits. While there isn’t any thing fancy about normal green tea, Matcha green tea has become increasingly popular and trendy in recent years. Matcha has many reported benefits, the main one being its super concentrated dose of antioxidants in…

3 Simple Ways to Improve your Wellness

Often times when people look to become “healthier,” whether because they want to, feel they should or were told to, they aren’t sure where to begin. Improving your wellness can seem like such a grandiose task when you start to think about dietary changes, exercise, giving up your vices, stress reduction etc. Dietary changes alone can seem like an impossible feat, mostly because you instantly think it means “eat better and eat less,” synonymous with…

Finding Movement that Moves You

Exercise. That thing we’ve all been told we should do. The thing we say we’ll start doing after the new year. The thing we say we’ll do more of so we can “look good for ________.” The thing we say we’ll start being better about doing next week. Many people have a very complicated, on again/ off again relationship with exercise. We know its “good for us,” that its important to our health, but thats…

Enjoying the Beauty of Autumn

Ive decided I want to start quarterly posts featuring what I love most about the current season and ways I’ve taken advantage of what the season offers. Its easy to let seasons come and go and feel like you were too busy to really enjoy it. Taking time to enjoy the simple pleasures of a season is a great thing to do for you mental health and happiness. I love the changing air, baking fall…
