The Master Cleanse

If you follow me on Instagram, then you may recall that I spent the first half of my Spring Break last month doing something called The Master Cleanse. I spent the second half doing the exact opposite (eating and drinking adult bevs) around Austin. If you were wondering what the heck The Master Cleanse was, then today you’re in luck. I’m talking about what it is, why on earth I did it, and my thoughts about…

White Workout Gear

shop the look: When I bought this marble print workout set, one of my friends asked if I was crazy because white often makes you look bigger. This may be why you see SO many black workout outfits. I’m a fan of black, always, especially with workout gear, but I wanted to switch it up. One, I love marble anything. Plus, white for Spring is just fresh and happy. But, finally, when I’m in the…

Ten Tips to Keep you Motivated

Shop the look:   It’s mid-February.. how ya doing on those New Years Goals? I made it through a January Whole 30, celebrated for a night, went back to it for two days, then took a weekend off.

Eyelash Extensions FAQ

You’ve probably noticed on my Instagram that I’ve talked about eyelash extensions several times each month. Well, not just talked about them.. more like sang the praises of them. Holy time saver! Between eyelash extensions and microblading I seriously save 10-15 minutes each morning. I’ve also become a little more high maintenance. Or maybe, less depending on how you look at it. I’m going with less. I’ve been collaborating with Amazing Lash Studio in Dallas…

Essential Natural Products

A few years ago when I did my first Whole 30 I had signed up for a daily newsletter that was waiting for you in your inbox each morning. It provided different motivation or tips, along with some additional information to think through as you completed your 30 day challenge. One of those days, the topic was about household products. The Whole 30 made me feel like a pro when it came to reading my food labels,…

October Tricep Challenge

Let’s start your week off with a little #MotivationMonday. I love the start of a new month, week, or even day to change your mindset. It’s a great time to reset your intention and make better choices. That’s why my ‘Never Miss a Monday’ mentality works so well. If you start your week out on a positive note making good choices, you’ll be more likely to keep them up through the week. With a wedding…

No Equipment Arm Workout

Arms are definitely an area I neglected for far too long. I’m not really sure why though. Ever heard of the skinny arm? I mean c’mon, you’re taking a picture and stand with your arm on hip to angle it and make it appear smaller. It flatters your overall figure. That is why all the stars pose that way on the red carpet and is something I’ve done in pictures since high school. Arms are…

Having a work out that I can do quickly and efficiently with little to no equipment is important to help this not be an issue. To help you, I’m sharing a do anywhere leg workout. This outfit is from Bandier– which I posted about here. Just like…
