Simple Beach Waves Hair Tutorial

Simple Beach Waves Hair Tutorial

Alright folks here's my first ever hair tutorial so bear with me. Funny enough I was a hairstylist for 10 years so I should be used to doing these right?! :) Every where I turn I'm seeing all these soft tousled beach waves everywhere I go or maybe its just me. I'm madly missing the warm beaches of Hawaii, especially now that fall is just around the corner.

What to do when motivation is low

What to do when motivation is low

Even after 3 years of committing to an active lifestyle of daily exercise I still wake up with those days where I just don't wanna...I'm human, I stumble, I have setbacks, and I also have the strength to pick myself up and GO! We all have these thresholds where we go through these funky moments. It's important to recognize when you're getting close to those thresholds are and assess them. Ask yourself: am I getting enough sleep, has something changed in my eating patterns, is it almost that time of the month (totally relevant)? The body is an amazing thing it's incredibly adaptable to change and can adjust itself when necessary. So if something is draining your normal energy source, take a quick moment to do some introspection.

Nine Retreat 2016 Recap

Nine Retreat 2016 Recap

My absolute favorite gem of all is the realization that we’ve started to dismiss one of our greatest power as women, which is our intuition and learning to listen to our own truths. Often times we’ve dismissed what we deeply know about ourselves or others because of what society is telling us to be. We’ve come to a time in our society where we’ve started to seek outside validation rather than listening to the voice within that’s already saying, “You are beautiful. You are strong. You are enough.” How many times do we sell ourselves short to live just below our potential? How many times do we dismiss our truths in order to please other people and make them happy? I mean seriously, talk about mind blown!

Come Ride With Me at SoulCycle Walnut Creek

Each person recharges from different forms of exercise.  Some crave long runs on a trail, others love the high energy aerobics based classes, or being a badass ballerina on the barre. At some point of my fitness journey I've tried it all! Because of my crazy schedule I relish the chance to get sweat with others. Which is why I'm so excited to be hosting a SoulCycle class at the brand new Walnut Creek location!

Everyone remembers their first SoulCycle ride. I know I do, March 23, 2014 with one of my good friends in Palo Alto. There was something about the music, the vibes, the dark room, and riding to the rhythm rather than riding for speed. It set my soul on fire! Most people you talk to will say things like SoulCycle was cleansing for the soul. Others will describe the class as inspiring as an incredible yoga class that truly centers you in the present moment of your movement. If you're new to SoulCycle or a SoulCycle addict consider this your open invitation to tap it back and ride to the rhythm. Whatever your motivation is, I can't wait to share this experience with you.

Details on the ride are in the information graphic above and to RSVP for your ride click here or click on the photo above!

I’m a mother of two beautiful daughters and married to a man who completes me. I started my fitness journey as a way to heal my soul and launched my blog in hopes to continue to inspire and empower women to use fitness as a tool to heal depression and find their self worth. I strongly believe that each woman deserves to be in love with herself just as much as her man does. I have an obsession with reusable water bottles, I enjoy action movies, and I’m in love with burpees.

A few months back Muscle Milk reached out to me, they wanted to share my story. They wanted to share all the bits and pieces of what makes my journey so special to me. I always tell people this:

Fitness is not about the perfect body. It's about getting your life together. 

At the end of the day you have to go to bed feeling satisfied and fulfilled with the live you have and wake up with clarity in order to face the world ahead.
