prAna

I have always been a fan of prAna and usually browse their products at my local REI store and I am pretty sure I own the Ashley Capri Legging in every color. I am currently participating in the 30 days of yoga challenge (#TakeTheLeap) and was given the opportunity by SweatPink and prAna to try out a top and pants. Since Michigan weather has been less than stellar I went with cheery peachy outfit. The Tori Capri and Vinyasa Hoodie, both are equally comfortable and amazing for yoga. Plus you would not believe how many comments I receive on how cute my outfit is!

Remember your summer bodies are made in the winter so head on over to prAna's website and get some fantastic spring gear. The leggings come in some fabulous colors, not to mention they are beyond comfortable.

prAna offers clothing for people who live life fully, play long and travel well. prAna is focused on sustainability and their products are made from organic fabrics and natural fibers. They even ship in recycled packaging and they come tied in a bow! It doesn't get any cuter than that.

I have always browsed Prana’s products in my local REI store and have purchased a few of their dresses. I hadn’t had a chance to test their workout pants and gear until given the opportunity through SweatPink. I was given the chance to try their Gabi Leggings and Gemma Sweater and I am in love with both. I gave them a test during a yoga routine.

Ice Ice Baby

This weekend I checked out the ice sculptures in my hometown. They were too cool not to share with you!








Valentine's Day


I was dreading Valentine's Day, being single and the sweetest day of the year just don't seem to go hand and hand. However it was probably one of my favorite Valentine's ever. Sure I didn't get flowers, but I spent the day with girlfriends, ate my body weight in cupcakes and enjoyed some movies.

10 Ways To Be Sexier Right Now


How to be sexy is a precarious question. There’s no real formula and it’s more in the eye of the beholder.  However there are things you can do to increase your appeal

1. Always make eye contact.
Not only will this boost your own confidence, but it will have others see you as confident and in control, which I most cases is a sexy trait.

2. A good blow out.
When our hair looks bad, we often feel bad. Getting a blow out at your local salon or Dry Bar can immediately give you an extra hint of sex appeal.

3. Unfollow people who make you insecure.
Stop following people whose social media photos make you feel less than.

4. Borrow his shirt.
Time and time again guys say one of the sexiest things women can wear is one of their shirts.

5. Wear heels.
One of the quickest ways to feel sexier is by slipping on a pair of your highest heels for an empowering boost.

6.  You are what you sleep in.
Are you frumpy in flannel or sexy in satin?

7. Nix panty lines.
Panty lines are never sexy, ever. Invest in nude, seamless panties.

8. Play up your best features.
Love your eyes? Make them pop. Have fabulous lips? Gloss them up.

9.  Take up yoga.
Yoga brings stronger mind-body connections, which can result in you feeling a whole lot sexier.

10. Be comfortable in your own skin.
Complete confidence is the key component of sex appeal.

Fruit Skewers

Chocolate covered strawberries are my favorite, but who needs all those extra calories. This weekend I made a healthier version of my favorite treat. All you need is strawberries, bananas, skewers and dark chocolate chips. Enjoy.
 {To keep the bananas from browning I soaked them in 7UP}

All's Fair in Love and Wardrobe

All's Fair in Love & Wardrobe is a total game changer. Stephanie Simons is absolutely brilliant.The book is a crash course of how to date like a fashion editrix and contains 121 rules for navigating the dating world. It's the book every single girl MUST have! Not to mention the illustrations are the cutest! Here's a peek into the book:







Review: Louisiana Alligator Jerky Dog Treats

Recently I was out for a walk with Jack and the neighbor stopped me to ask if Jack could have an Alligator treat. My first reaction was "no", i'm really picky about the treats that I give Jack. Then she informed me that they're made in the USA (bonus!) and started to read off the ingredients - the first one being alligator and each one following it I actually knew what it was. 

I allowed Jack to have one and he was absolutely hooked. If you haven't tried these with your pups yet I highly recommend them because we give them FOUR PAWS UP! All the neighbor dogs would agree too.

Kissable Lips


We all have our little beauty secrets, and today I’m spilling the beans on getting perfectly kissable lips:

Fresh Sugar Lip Polish
Massage a small amount onto your lips. Rinse with a damp washcloth. During the colder months I use it every morning or evening. Otherwise I only use it 2-3 times a week.

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment
I use this immediately after I have rinsed off the lip polish. It’ll leave your lips feeling incredibly soft and smooth. Throughout the day I use Burt’s Bees chapstick.

Must Try Beauty Buys: January

{Zoya Naturel Satins}
Zoya Naturel Satins: This is the quintessential collection to transition from winter to spring. Every color in the collection is gorgeous and I love that the polish finish is a hybrid between a matte and glossy finish. Since I love learning about products from other’s I decided that every month I am going to share my favorite products with you that you might not hear about otherwise.  For January it was all about saving my skin from the sub-zero temperatures. So without further ado here are my favorites:

True Blue Spa – Cracked Heel Treatment: I don’t know about you, but the winter wrecks havoc on my poor feet. Since getting a pedicure every week is an unreal option I use this treatment and then immediately put socks on to lock in the moisture. It’s a miracle worker.

Violife Personal Misting Humidifier: This product is a game changer. If you live in a cold climate – like I do, you need this bad boy in your life! It’s small enough to take with you everywhere and only requires a standard size water bottle. Trust me your skin is going to thank you.



Le Mieux Hyaluronic Serum: This is a winter must-have for me. It replenishes the moisture in my skin and essential leaves it feeling super hydrated. I use it in the morning and evening.
Geluxury Slippers: A spa-like treatment from the comfort of your home? Sign me up! With regular use (I wear mine nightly) the slippers will soften and smooth dry, rough skin and calluses, as well as repair damaged cuticles and nail beds. My feet have never been so soft in the winter.
