Morning Yoga Sequence

I'm a pretty big morning person, so I usually wake up a few hours before I have to leave somewhere to make sure I have everything together and have enough time to get everthing done. Recently, I have been wearing my Garmin Vivofit sportsband to track my activity throughout the day, so I have been trying to fit in as many workouts as possible to see my progress.

Since I am a lot more productive in the morning, I figured it would probably be most realistic to plan to workout when I get in up the morning, as opposed to when I get home late at night. So I went on the search for the perfect morning workout.

As you know, I am a yoga fan so I naturally began to look for Yoga videos on YouTube (side note: if you don't have that much time or money to spend on a fitness routine, there are so many different levels and types of workout classes available for free on YouTube). I clicked on a few videos, but none of them sparked my interest until I came across this one:

I love Yoga with Adriene! She is so sweet and welcoming, and she has a lot of great workouts catered to so many types of styles/situations. This sequence was only about 20 mins, which is the perfect amount of time to slip in a workout if you have a busy schedule!
I really enjoyed this sequence and felt like I was more alive following my practice! It is so easy to fall into the slump of things, but when you push yourself to do something as simple as a 20 minute yoga class, you're forced to get more in tune with your body, which will positively affect your wellness. 
Let me know if you tried out this video or if you have any suggestions for videos to watch!

Favorite Summer Products | Cruelty Free

This summer, I have been loving all the fruity products that I can get my hands on! From all natural face masks, to cruelty free hair products, I have been so in love with all the new items I have been trying!
I have heard so much about Korean skincare, and how revolutionary that it can be for your skin, so I did some research and found Frudia! Frudia is a Korean skincare company whose products are filled with natural fruit juices and extracts, giving you the essential nutrients you need without all the chemicals!
I picked up the Green Grape Pore Control Mask, at my local Ulta, and it is super hydrating while also tightening pores!
I also met with the founder of MopTop Hair while at the Natural Food and Product Expo West this past year. She was so sweet and sent me home with a few samples and I was automatically obsessed with not only the delicious smell of the products, but the way it made my hair feel!
The Mongongo Oil smells amazing and hydrates your hair without making you feel greas…

SoulCycle

This morning, my friend and I woke up for the 8:30am spin class at the new SoulCycle studio in Walnut Creek!
I have always wanted to try SoulCycle, and had a few free passes given to me during the promotion for their grand opening, so I figured I might as well go soon!
So, my friend and I walk in and immediately we were in awe of how sleek, clean, and bright everything was! It was like walking into the studio of your dreams!  We filled out all of our paperwork, tried on some clip-in shoes (they cost $3 to rent), and headed to the lockers to get ready before class.
The studio was so welcoming and had everything from hairbands to deodorant to back you up in case you forgot anything!
Now, about the class.
At first, I was extremely intimidated. There are so many bikes and it seemed like everyone was a regular, so I felt a little anxious, but just wanted to see what all the hype was about!
The second the class starts, you're nonstop moving.  I felt like I was going to die the first 10…

Winter Essentials!

I love winter.
I love the rain, the candles, the hot cocoa, Christmas shopping & everything in between!
One thing I'm definitely obsessed with right now is plaid!



I found this adorable plaid craft paper at Michaels Stores, and this perfect plaid hair scrunchie from Goody Hair!

Some of my other favorite goodies are the Jolly Gloss by Kylie Cosmetics, and the winter eyeshadow kit from Chanel Makeup!

I've also included in the photo, a candle that smells like delicious ripes apples, and a gorgeously wrapped bar of soap that I've received as a gift :)

What are some of your winter favs?

Happy Holidays!
