I probably should have titled this post “a look at our home DECORATING” since it took us almost four years to find a style that we actually liked, but I guess technically we did redecorate from our shoddy previous attempts, so here’s a look at what we’re working with now! *Heads up — a few affiliate links below First stop is our bedroom, which is now painted a cool whitish blue color. We added these white shelves in the corner which actually make way more of a difference than I thought they would. All the plants you’ll see in this… View Post

I’ve lived in Chicago almost four years now and I’ve certainly been to my fair share of fitness classes. I’ve met tons of people in the fitness community through teaching both boutique and corporate fitness, yet I can’t believe that I haven’t written this post yet!

So if you don’t see a genre on… View Post

Ok, this post is long overdue and apologies for that. It felt like whenever I sat down to write it, it was a daunting monstrosity that was easier to postpone than bang out.

Since I’ve been getting more emails asking for food recommendations, I figured it would be better to have one (or two) posts to direct people to than typing the same things out over and over. SO HERE WE ARE. This is by no means an exhaustive list and I’m sure that… View Post

I have a running list of goals that I want to achieve. I’m not great about the when particularly, but they’re there and I make sure to check that list pretty frequently to see how I’m coming along. One of those goals was that I wanted to have events of some kind. I believe the exact wording was “have get togethers about wellness and shit.” I’m quite eloquent with my goals. In May of this year I decided that it was time to check that goal off my list. I decided that I wanted to host workshops that aligned with the content… View Post
