What’s In My Bag: Yoga Edition

I have been doing a lot of yoga lately! Over the past few months, I have found a new love for flow and hot yoga that I never thought I would have! I go to a great studio that is super welcoming, with great instructors – and I think that is half the battle! Thanks, Sol Yoga! 🙂 Also, yoga is a great compliment to the runs I have been training for. I am forced to stretch things out whether I want to or not!

You don’t need a lot of things to start a yoga practice – the bare minimum is a mat. But, over the past few months, I have found a few things that really help me when I go to the studio. So, come along as we explore What’s In My (Yoga) Bag!

Review: Imperfect Produce

As someone that eats all the veggies, I am always looking for quality produce at reasonable prices. When half your weekly grocery bill goes toward vegetables every little bit helps.

Recently, I was introduced to the company Imperfect Produce. They provide mail order service of produce that doesn’t meet the cosmetic standards of grocery stores. The produce might not be the prettiest around, but there’s no reason not to eat it!

If you are interested in trying this service out and would like $10 OFF keep on reading!

Winter Beauty Essentials

This winter seems to be neverending. As this post is going live, Western Maryland is getting a lovely 5-8 inches of snow.

In the meantime, I thought I would share some of my favorite winter beauty essentials. The cold, dry air can certainly do a number on anyone’s skin – this is how I deal with it.

Also, if you follow my Instagram you would have seen that I applied to be a part of the #SephoraSquad.

They are looking for someone to be a “unique, unfiltered, sorry-not-sorry storyteller.” I have never shied away from telling you guys how it is! So, I would really appreciate it if you could support me in joining the #SephoraSquad. If you want to help out, please go leave a testimonial for me HERE.

Review: Goodr Sunglasses

Of all the workout accessories I have purchased Goodr Sunglasses have been my favorite. I found out about them when I was at my local running shop – Charm City Run. I am a sucker for a good pair of sunglasses and I saw these on the counter while I was buying my running shoes. I convinced myself at the time that I didn’t need another pair of sunglasses…but, then I went home and did a little research.

Review: Athleta Thrive Fit Fest (Harrisburg)

This past weekend I attended the Athleta Thrive Fit Fest in Harrisburg, PA. It was the first time I had ever been to a “fitness festival” but I have seen them popping up everywhere, so I decided to give one a try!

I had a great experience and got to try a lot of different workouts, products, and food that I normally wouldn’t have. The whole thing was a bit intense with back-to-back workouts scheduled, but you can pick and choose what you want to try. I, of course, wanted to try almost everything…and now I am super sore because of it! But damn if it wasn’t a great way to spend a day!
