22

Today, on my 23rd birthday (cue Blink-182), I am so grateful for everything that I have and for everything I have been able to accomplish and experience in 23 years. So, I wanted to reflect on my 22nd year and share some of my favorite moments from this past year as I prepare for the…

January Favorites

It seems like 2018 just began, and yet here we are at the end of January! For me, January can be rough. As someone who loves the sun and loves to warm weather (why else would I routinely go to yoga classes in 95 degree rooms?), the lack of sunshine and warmth in January can…

My Hangover Heroes

If you’re of legal drinking age, you’ve probably had a hangover. It’s that nasty feeling that you get the day after drinking where you may experience any (or all) of the following: – Headache – Dehydration – Nausea – Soreness – Increased or decreased appetite – General fogginess For some people, these symptoms last a…

Ride or Dies: Face Masks

The middle of winter is upon us. Here in Baltimore, it’s currently 16 degrees and VERY dry. As someone who has sensitive, dry skin– I’m not loving it. As soon as the cold, dry weather rolls around my face turns crocodile-esque. It’s dull, it’s scaly, it’s just not cute. Something that I truly believe helps…

Yoga Essentials For Beginners

At the beginning of each year, thousands of people (probably more) embark on their New Years resolutions. One of the top New Years resolutions is to lose weight. Another is to become more fit. And with the growing popularity of yoga for fitness, yoga studios have grown to expect a flooded studio for the first…

New Year; Better Me

When I was thinking about this year, it definitely sparked a lot of different emotions for me. Mostly good ones, with a sprinkle of the not-so-good ones. When looking back on a year, it can be easy to only notice the glaring mistakes we made, or things that we wanted to accomplish… but didn’t. This…

5 Things About Moving Out

Alright, so let’s talk about growth. Recently I graduated from college with a B.A. in International Relations and French, which meant I needed to become a real adult. For many, those words are terrifying. And trust me, it was the same for me. I spent the summer in a constant state of panic and stress (and…

Current Snack Crushes

We need to talk about something important: snacks. I am an avid snacker, and almost religiously have a morning and afternoon snack. Sam and I have a designated snack cabinet that practically avalanches onto you when you open it, but somehow also always need replenishing (he’s also an avid snacker). Sometimes I want a sweet…

How to Start Yoga

As a yoga teacher, I have had so many people (including close friends and family!!) say the following sentences to me: I can’t do yoga, I’m not flexible! How do I get into yoga?   The first statement is probably one of the most frequent sentences in my everyday life (and it kind of drives me…

Current Beauty Faves

I know most people share their favorite products at the end of the month/the beginning of the following month, but since I don’t routinely share my favorites I figured I would do it right in the middle of the month! Plus, I have a couple of things that I have been absolutely obsessing over– whether…

Adulthood and Exercise

As many of you may know, I recently (over a month ago now, so maybe not so recently) got a full-time job. I work Monday through Friday, 8:00am to 5:00pm. And on top of these long days, my commute usually takes a little over an hour. When I get home, there are things I need…

A New Chapter: My Move to Baltimore

I’ve been largely inactive on this blog for a little over two years now, but now that I’ve graduated and have gained some clarity through some of my experiences, I think I’m ready to revamp my blog a little. I’m still not sure what the purpose or theme of this blog will be, other than…
