I grew up with a few saying that my mom drilled into my head. "It doesn't hurt to ask." "They can only say 'Yes' or 'No'" So as I continue on this environment-friendly journey by taking my own glass containers to food and drink places, I'm reminded of this. Do... Continue reading

I would say that my first encounter with Anxiety was immediately after High School when I found out that my then-boyfriend was cheating on me. But no, don’t feel sorry for me. Even now, I refuse to let people pity me. But I didn’t know what it was or that... Continue reading

I know as a coach that sometimes I get stuck in a rut posting the same kind of images about Beachbody on Instagram, so I whipped up this quick 31 day guide to help give others an idea of what else to post. Personally, I know that it never occurs... Continue reading

As a Beachbody coach, part of my job is to make sure that I'm getting my daily dose of dense nutrition by drinking Shakeology. Except, I had a problem. I hated washing the blender after every smoothie that I made. I would inevitably knick or poke myself on some part... Continue reading

I've been away from Beachbody for a while now but lately I've decided that maybe this is something that I can get back into and do, so I've come back. It's always been something that I find myself coming back to time and again, especially Tony Horton. But every now... Continue reading

Summer's finally here and even though I try to get out to the beach as much as possible, I still haven't fully gotten out there. While I do have my beach bag packed and ready in my trunk for an impromptu stop, I know there are still quite a few... Continue reading

Every year I compose my Summer. Do. list. This is basically all the things that I want to do this summer. It can range from 'go to a drag show' to 'get a darker tan'. I don't think I made one last year but since I'm getting back into the... Continue reading

This video is a couple of months old but I thought I'd share it here. I hear so many people complaining about trash at the beach, yet don't do anything to help alleviate the problem. Continue reading

I realized lately that I hadn't been reading as much as I used to, so a week or so ago Bub and I spent an afternoon at Barnes & Noble. Now, I wasn't able to buy every book that interested me *Insert super sad face here* , but I was... Continue reading

A few days ago Bub and I decided that we wanted to go hiking. We were set on Point Mugu again when we realized we weren't quite in shape to scale that beast of a mountain, so we chose another trail closer to home. We ended up at Ocean Trails... Continue reading

As somebody who practically lives at the beach, especially during the summer, there are a few things that I like to keep in my beach bag that aren't beauty related, so I thought I'd share them with you. 1/ You Had Me At Aloha bag I actually picked this up... Continue reading

So tomorrow is Earth Day and if you've been wondering how you could live a more ocean-friendly life, I can tell you that it's not so hard. I know it may seem like a huge undertaking. I mean, what difference can one person make? The answer honestly is, a lot!... Continue reading

This is the Vaquita. They are the smallest porpoise in the world. They never stop smiling, and there are less than 30 of them left making them the world's most endangered marine mammal. They are critically endangered and their extinction is only imminent. Save the Vaquita Day is July 11th... Continue reading

I'm a firm believer in showing gratitude for the things that we receive. I like to take a few minutes at the end of the day to write them down and so here are all of the things that I was grateful for in February. Spending time at the park... Continue reading

With the word 'Feminist' being tossed around so aggressively these days like it's the worst thing a woman can be, I like so many other women in the world will proudly admit to being one. Does that make me bad? No. Do I hate men? Quite the contrary. What I... Continue reading

Hey Babes! So every Monday, I plan to show you my week in photos. I don't intend to post the stories behind them or any other notes, just photos for the sake of photos. Here's Week 3! Continue reading

Earlier this week I decided that I needed to start using my dSLR more often so I've been lugging it around with me for the past week. And I'll be honest, it's been so long that I've actually taken photos with it that I've almost forgot to take photos on... Continue reading

I know we've all seen those articles about why Starbucks baristas get your name wrong. Revenge and them being bored are usually what that whole thing gets chalked up to, but as a Starbucks barista myself, I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Promise not to tell,... Continue reading

The new year has just started and maybe you're starting to organize your new bullet journal. OR you're like me and have been getting your bullet journal ready for a few weeks now. Either way. I like to have quotes in my BuJo to look at every week and so... Continue reading

Hey guys! For December I have a goal of working out at least twice a week. It doesn't matter the workout, just as long as I'm getting in some physical activity. So far, I'm still on track. I'm still doing my Beachbody workouts, but admittedly, I don't really drink the... Continue reading

If you follow me on Instagram, which you totally SHOULD be doing, you'd know that I'm just a teensy-tiny bit obsessed, and in love with my cat Max. So I wanted to share the story of how he came about. But first, you need to know the story of Gin.... Continue reading

Dealing with mental illness is no easy feat. Not for the person who it afflicts nor for the people who love and care for said person. It is stressful, isolating, confusing, intense. The depths of one's depression can become impenetrable. Their Anxiety; uncomfortable and labyrinthine. But it is not yours... Continue reading

So if you didn't know. I've gotten back onto the fitness horse, which is a good thing, I suppose. Back in 2014, I used to be a Beachbody "coach". I put it in parenthesis because I really only did it for the discounts. For the last year or so there... Continue reading

Drinking protein shakes are hard for me especially because I'm just not used to drinking them, but since starting my Beachbody challenge yesterday, I've made it a goal to get used to having them every day. It's going to be difficult, honestly. But I've been thinking about recipes and how... Continue reading
