Live Well / 25.04.2017

It's Week two of the Fit Body Reboot, my fitness and health collaboration with Fitness blogger Sydney Torabi. Last week I shared some secrets to preparing my body for an intense workout or stressful week. It included some of my favorite foods and ways to get moving. This week, I'm sharing 6 Tone Up Moves that Sydney & I swear by. On a normal week, I aim to get in three 45 minute workouts minimum. On top of the three workouts, I usually spend at least 30 minutes dancing (specifically samba and twerkin') two days out of the week. I admit...

  So it's Week One of our Fit Body Reboot and I can't tell you how much fun it has been preparing and planning the content for this month. Sydney and I got together at a coffee shop one day and kind of laid out some ideas for this collaboration, and now it's finally happening! Last weekend, I visited her at Crush Fitness to try one of her KILLER interval training workouts (if you live in Austin, Texas, I highly recommend it) and let's just say there's a reason why you need to prepare for jumping in to a new workout...

Clothing / 19.04.2017

When it comes to going bare, let me just say I am very picky about what I put on my body. In fact, I have undergarments that I wear depending on my mood. I have those sexy pieces for when I'm 'feelin' myself' and some cute comfortable pieces for when I just want to chill as well. I also have some things that I wear when I'm feeling slovenly. So when I discovered these absolutely adorable underwear and lounge pieces from Tizz, I knew I had to reach out! What Makes Tizz So Special? All of Tizz's solid (un-printed) under garments are...

  I'm super excited to announce to you guys a super fun collaboration with fellow Austin, Texas blogger Sydney Torabi. She's an ultra fit group fitness instructor (take one of her fitness classes at Crush fitness). I wanted to team up with someone who could help motivate me to get back into my own fitness regime. So, we are doing a month long Fit Body Reboot across both of our blogs and social channels. And I am super excited about it! My goal during this month long restorative journey is to 1. Increase my motivation to stay fit, 2. Learn to love...

skin / 10.04.2017

    As the temperature warms up, so does our need for sun protection. Being of a darker complexion, I have never felt the need to protect my skin from the sun. I figure my skin was designed to withstand the intense heat of the sun. In my 28 years of living, I've only known to burn once or twice from over exposure to the sun. I recently discovered Unsun Tinted Mineral Sunscreen in Ebony magazine and I knew I wanted to try it out. I reached out to Katonya Breaux, the founder of the cosmetics line and scored a sample to...
