When 22-year-old Kayla Itsines got her personal training certification and began helping women transform their bodies at a training center in Australia, she was disappointed what she was taught wasn’t giving her clients the results they wanted to achieve.

Are You Taking More Medicine Than You Actually Need?

Are You Taking More Medicine Than You Actually Need?

There’s a prescription for everything. Whether you get bad migraines or are on medicine for anxiety, every problem seems to be fixed with something you can go to the pharmacy and get over the counter. But, with all of the billions of dollars spent on prescriptions each year, how many of those meds do people...
Just Relax: A Moment of Meditation

Just Relax: A Moment of Meditation

One of my greatest struggles has always been an inability to relax. I genuinely get angry when people say “Just Relax.” It’s never that simple. I bite my lips (in a very non-Fifty Shades kind of way), I pick at my nail beds, I get hives all over my body, I even get sick to...

5 Snacks to Curb Your Mid-Day Munchies

  We all know the feeling. You’re sitting at work and you’re dying for something to snack on, but instead of going down to the vending machine and getting something you’ll regret later (and wasting those valuable laundry quarters!), have something a little healthier on hand that will not only leave you feeling full and...
Banana Bread... With a Boost!

Banana Bread… With a Boost!

Do you ever find yourself on Pinterest, perusing “healthy” recipes and questioning the three cups of sugar included in the recipe?

Get Seriously Friendly: Say “Hello” and Pick-Up a Date!

Fall is officially here and no one wants to spend those chilly nights alone! Instead of bundling up in a blanket with some tea and a great movie (which we totally love), switch it up and take the new season as an opportunity to break back into the dating scene! If you think the cold...

NIVEA’s “Dare to Bare” Challenge (+ $150 Shopbop Gift Card Giveaway!) [CLOSED]

For the past two weeks, we were chosen to try out NIVEA’s Skin Firming Hydration Body Lotion with Q10 – and to say the least, we’re absolutely loving it. Summer means ditching those beloved, figure-flattering skinnies for short shorts and flirty dresses, and that also means we’re spending more time in front of the mirror examining every...

Put a Little Spring in Your Step

Hello spring, it’s so nice to see you! Warmer weather, longer days, blooming flowers — there are so many reasons to love this season. But above all this, the spring is a wonderful opportunity for a fresh start. After a long, cold, sometimes difficult winter we could often use a clean slate. Susan J. Bissonette...

How to Have a "Me" Day

How to Have a “Me” Day

I’m busy and know you are too — and I find it extremely uplifting and inspiring to spend a complete day (or even a couple hours) completely by myself. I’ve learned how valuable it is to give myself self-care – I feel much less stressed and much more happy when I carve out time to...
