Coachella for Basics.

Countdown to Coachella is ON and so I had to bring on a podcast guest who is an expert in all things #Chella.

Beyond her gorgeous Mila Kunis looks, she has one of the sweetest personalities and little did I know before I interview, she is wise…

How I Prep for Travel

OK I am kind of panicking as I write this. I have three glorious weeks of travel coming but with that comes the anxiety and stress of getting everything set up to go, go, go. Because I’m a Type-A crazy (let’s get serious – I believe these are all excellent qualities) I of course have a system that I’ve put in place to help manage the many things that need to get done and help me take off with ease.…

Why Aren’t You Binging These Shows?

That is a misleading title, since you might very well be binging these shows as we speak. If you are, THE TITLE DOESN’T APPLY TO YOU OK?! Great. I’m glad we cleared that up. Now the reason we’re really here: I had a great weekend. Like, got sh*t done but also lazed around and caught up on all my stories, aka my TV SHOWS. And I realized, we’ve never discussed what I’m binging and what I feel it’s my public…

That being said, I do my best to stick to a workout routine that fits my lifestyle and incorporates exercises/classes that I truly enjoy, thus increasing the likelihood that I’ll attend. Below I’m sharing my typical workout routine for the week and…
