Yoga Poses to Beat the Winter Blues & Kharma Khare Yoga Mat Review

Hello Darlings!

My yoga practice is a bit unorthodox. And because of that my mats take a beating. From puppy paws to Red Rocks’ dirt to mountain snow, they have to bear a little bit of everything. So when Kharma Khare reached out to see if I might want to take their Hybrid Bliss Non Slip Eco-Friendly Yoga Mat for a test drive I knew I had to put it through the ringer before sharing it with you lovelies. And, boy, did it pass with flying colors!

Meatless Monday: Sautéed Mushrooms and Shallots with Brussels Sprouts

Hello Darlings!

I feel like I have been ridiculously busy for months on end. And with that I know that my healthy eating has been slipping. So I decided that this weekend I was going to take a bit of time to ready myself for another packed-to-the-gills week and meal prep just a bit.

What I Ate Wednesday: Getting Back on Track

Hello Darlings!

This past holiday season I was on the See-Food diet. If I saw it, I ate it- which led to a body that didn’t feel so great. I am all about the occasional splurge; I’ve been known to pack a beautiful salad for lunch, followed by baked chicken and veggies for dinner and then the next night house half a pizza, and for me that’s okay. However after all of my holiday splurging my body felt run down and heavy. Not in the ‘I gained weight’ way but the ‘I constantly put crap into my body and can feel it way’. So, this WIAW is all about getting back on track, and feeling healthy and whole in my body once again.

Four Weeks to Body Freedom

Hello Darlings!

When it comes to body image I am all about empowerment. Be you, love you, embrace your flaws- we are all incredible creatures. However, for lots of us we can tell ourselves that all we want but often we don’t believe it. That’s where my good friend Madelyn Moon comes in.

Meatless Monday: Dutch Apple Pie Pancakes

Hello Darlings!

A while back I shared a snap of a delicious breakfast I had up at my mom’s house on Instagram (not following me? Get on that!) and got quite a few requests for the recipe and I aim to please! These Dutch Apple Pie Pancakes are super simple and tasty; the recipe originally came from a friend of my mother’s but because I am incapable of leaving any recipe as is I added my own spin!
