7 ways to make fitness a priority when you just can’t commit

I, along with more than half the population (I’m not a statistician, don’t quote me on this) do not naturally LOVE working out. I spent many a year wishing and praying that one day it would all magically click for me, and I’d be one of those people who has to spend every day in the […]

embracing my inner child

To be honest, I’ve been feeling a bit all over the place lately. Excited about opportunity one moment…completely overwhelmed and defeated the next. For as much as I try to live in the present, I’m a worry-wart at heart: an endless planner, a list checker, a goal seeker. In the midst of all of that, I […]

find what makes you happy and do more of that

It’s funny – I think life has a way of making us forget what makes us happy and remember all too well what doesn’t. It’s easy to feel discouraged and down in the dumps and convince ourselves we’ve got to accept our current set of circumstances. But…what if we didn’t? I shared how I’ve been feeling […]

the solution is simple

We live in a digital world, that’s for sure. And though I love the speed and convenience of technology, I often find myself grasping for those mediums of the past – handwritten letters, dropping off a roll of film to be developed, picking up physical books from the library. There’s a slowness in these efforts […]

explore la : westridge-canyonback wilderness

The past month all I have quite literally wanted to do is go on a hike. But with the onslaught of rain we got in the first few weeks of the year, it just wasn’t happening. So last weekend I told myself we were going on a hike if it was the last thing we did, […]

winter nighttime routine

To my summer loving dismay, winter seems to be sticking around. I say there is “winter” in Los Angeles, but the real heroes in the Northeast would severely beg to differ. Nonetheless, this time of year I have to wear close-toed shoes and turn our heater on at night, so…it’s basically Antarctica over here. Either way, I have decided to […]

new year intentions

I’m a big “to-do” list maker, and the start of the new year is no exception. My biggest challenge is reining in my long lists, so I’m left with a few realistic goals I can conceivably accomplish.  Often my intentions follow some sort of pattern or fit into the same general realm – whether it be […]

yoga at home or on the road

I was a yoga skeptic for years – is it really a workout? Does it help with anything? Is it all a bunch of mumbo jumbo? But through my fitness journey, I’ve found that not only does yoga actually work and stretch my muscles (while building up a sweat!), but it helps ease my anxiety in ways I didn’t […]

ladies adventure club

The Sunday before last I attended a Super Moon gathering in Griffith Park with the Ladies Adventure Club, a gathering of women, curated by women, for the purpose of education, creativity, and exploration. This group of women came together to listen and connect and support one another, and it was the absolute loveliest thing. How often […]

seasons change : restyle

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I’ve been participating in the #thankfullist2016 challenge – posting each day in November about something for which I’m thankful. It’s a simple task to slow down and practice gratitude during this holiday season, which can sometimes feel overwhelming with activity. Yesterday I shared how I am […]
