For those of you who don’t know – I moved back to Illinois from New York about 3 weeks ago. I lived in New York for half a year, and while it was a great experience, it turns out that the big city doesn’t mix too well with this Midwestern girl. The fast pace, fragrant streets, and general grime stressed me and my skin out. Growing up I was #blessed with pretty docile skin. Redness here and a hormonal pimple there, but never anything too severe. Well, that all changed when I moved to New York. Between clogged pores covering… View Post

Allow me to be a bit dramatic and feel free to roll your eyes, BUT twenty-one feels way different than twenty ever did. When you are 20 you were still a teenager just a few months ago, you’re only two years out of high school. Twenty-one is another story entirely. You go from being twenty, to being in your twenties.

I usually don’t feel myself getting overwhelmed until it’s too late so I’ve been sure to work self-care… View Post

I am going to be talking a lot about my move to New York in coming posts because, really, how could I not? My life has definitely taken an unexpected (and exciting!) turn, and every post idea I’ve brainstormed up as of late has something to do with the move. Today I’ve teamed up with Dove to talk about 6 things nobody warned me about before moving to the city. I was told all about spotting Craigslist scams and finding the best food (there are vegetarian restaurants as far as the eye can see, y’all!), but there were a lot of important things… View Post

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Les Mills. The opinions and text are all mine. I’m all about promoting healthy living for a happy life. I grew up very active – I ran varsity cross country and track through high school and have spent every summer of my life on the river swimming, skiing, and kneeboarding. After going away to college I fell out of my fitness routine for a few months, and while I didn’t gain the dreaded freshman fifteen, I did lose the muscle tone I had spent years developing. Fast forward to now,… View Post
