A Barnes & Noble Love Affair: Discovery Weekend

Hello Darlings!

It is no secret that I am a huge nerd at heart. I am that girl, the girl who takes the time to sent text messages using correct grammar, who cringes when I get flirty messages with the incorrect use of you’re/your, and the one who will secretly snoop through your bookshelf when invited to dinner. Barnes & Noble is one of my happy places, not particularly great for my wallet, but one of my happy places nonetheless.

 So when I was invited to pop over to a Barnes and Noble store with a gaggle of Colorado bloggers to learn more about B&N’s Discovery Weekend event I jumped at the chance. We were given cookies and coffee (not a wonderful combination for miss sugar high who was raring to go until about four in the morning) both of which were delicious. These cookies, mind you, we’re s’mores cookies that were about the size of your face and will be available for purchase for $1 during select times over the weekend (11/21 7:30pm; 11/22 10:30am – 1:30pm – 7:30pm; and 11/23 at 2:30pm).

Yoga Poses for Tight Hip Flexors

Hello Darlings!

One of the most requested anatomical yoga posts here on Chickadee Says is all about hip flexors! From runners to climbers and every athlete in between, hip flexors help athletes move in many ways- picking up your knees to bending at the waist. Opening the hip creases allows for more fluid movement as well as greater hip mobility.

Some of the poses below are advanced, so make sure you warm up before adding them into your practice. And, there's no better way to warm up than practicing in some awesome Fabletics gear! I am loving these pants and EVERYTHING (not joking) from the November collection!

5 Favorite Olive Oil Alternatives

For a long time my go-to oil was olive oil. I used it for cooking, moisturizing, for my hair- pretty much everything. However, long gone are those days! 5 amazing olive oil alternatives are constantly stocked in my pantry (and bathroom cabinet!) and, no offense to olive oil, but they rock its socks off!

What I Ate Wednesday: Healthy While Eating Out

Hello Darlings!

I’ve been a bit bad (good?) lately about eating out. Spending time with friends while enjoying Colorado’s gorgeous autumn weather has been wonderful. I’ve been up to Boulder and out in my own neighborhood, but I noticed while going though my over-full phone (#bloggerproblems) that while I’ve been eating out I’ve been keeping it healthy- yay!

Forever Faster: PUMA Gear Review

The following post is sponsored by Fitfluential LLC on behalf of PUMA.

Hello Darlings!

As a yoga instructor I am incredibly picky about my workout clothes. They need to fit well (no slippage in asana, thank you), be versatile, and be super comfortable. I was asked to try out two outfits from PUMA, one from their performance line, and one from their fashion comfort line and sneakers to complement both. I took both outfits for test runs- it turns out I need more PUMA in my life!
