Wellness Wednesday: Onzie Yoga Apparel

Onzie Yoga Apparel

I am excited over all the fun new yoga clothing that is currently out now. Over the years I’ve worn lots of Lululemon, Athleta, and Lucy. They are great, but I wanted something a little more funky and hip. A little more California love (like the song) than basic neutrals. I give you Onzie. Onzie’s leggings are […]

Wellness Wednesday: Step Up Revolution Workout DVD

Step Up Revolution

I normally spend my weekend nights relaxing and catching up on silly movies if the husband is not around. As I was flipping through channels a few weekends back I came along another version of the Step Up dance movies. I totally forgot about how much I love them. They are cheesy, crazy, and fun […]

Wellness Wednesday: Getting My Yoga on With Gaiam

Gaiam Yoga Tools

When the lovely folks at Gaiam asked to assist me in my 2014 health and wellness journey I was thrilled. As part of my yoga journey I am trying to do some form of yoga at home every day, even if I make it to class at the studio. A few mornings a week I […]

This Yoga Body is a Wonderland!


{After completing my 200 hour level 2 yoga training at Tranquil Space} {Notice I’m the ONLY Black girl and I’m okay} I’m sure by now my lovely readers have read the story about a white yoga student being uncomfortable watching a “young, fairly heavy black woman” in her yoga class. Really? The interwebs went crazy. Twitter […]

Wellness Wednesday: Pick Your Yoga Practice by Meagan McCray

Pick Your Yoga Practice

I always say there are so many books and not enough time to read them all. Between my current Daniel Silva, self-help, and yoga books I need to go away for two weeks and do nothing but read. Yoga is such a huge part of my life and I can’t imagine my life without my […]

Sleep, It’s a Beautiful Thing

Sleep Cycle 2

I have stated before that I’m not the best sleeper in the world. There are places I can sleep wonderfully (any place near water) and places I have issues (home) because my my does not shut off. In yoga we call it the monkey mind. My mind races more than it should. Also, sometimes that […]

Big Girl Bath Time: Aura Cacia Comforting Geranium Bubble Bath

Aura Cacia Geranium

It seems summer is flying by. This weekend I plan to do nothing. I plan on finishing August magazines before those super thick September magazines start overpowering my mailbox. As busy as I’ve been I have made it a point to spend more time luxuriating in the bath most evenings. Showers are so rushed. They […]

Om Pretty: Yoga Everywhere With My New Mat

New Yoga Mat

A few weeks ago I realized that I hated my travel yoga mat. Hate is a strong word I know, but I was just tired of how heavy it felt at the bottom of my suitcase. My carry-on goes with me on my trips and adding an addition two pounds can add up. When I […]

Wellness Wednesday: My Yoga Home Practice

Yoga Mat

{My yoga mat on retreat in Provence, France – May 2012} It’s no secret how much I love yoga. But lately my yoga practice has been placed on the back burner in terms of workouts. It’s been swimming  running, boot camp and doing as much cardio I could get in. I was working out every […]

Wellness Wednesday: Drink More Water with Zing Anything Bottle

PicMonkey Collage

I learned about the Zing Anything Water Bottle at a natural products expo. It’s a water bottle where you put fruit or citrus in the bottom compartment, turn the container, and it releases the good stuff into your water. This actually infuses the water better than just dropping it into a bottle. The weather is […]
