In fact, I have more than a few waist trainers that I've been using for over a year since becoming curious about the waist training trend. I will be there and looking forward to some heart opening rooftop yoga atop the James Hotel in Soho. So here's my Flat Stanley Skincare Secret: I seek out skincare that's packaged flat and in single servings.
Geneva bravely decided to act on the lessons she learned through these books and noticed her life change drastically for the better.
And just in case you stop dancing to see where the hell you're going, the cruise will be sailing to Falmouth, Jamaica with a stop in Labadee, Haiti for a private live concert featuring the hottest Caribbean artists.
Their sail, while impressive in it's own right, represents something far greater for women.
From your clothes to accessories and gadgets, don't take a risk by wearing it for the first time on race day! I picked out some rather loud styles for our shoot but once I got comfortable in them, I had no qualms wearing them "off-set".
For the sake of being accurate, let's call these dangerous deodorants what they really are, which is antiperspirants.
I was there to buy an assortment of chocolates for my Aunt as a combined birthday and Valentine's Day gift.
This is Nicola Yvette, my longtime friend who teaches yoga & pilates (check her out here).
Last night we went on yoga date to Laughing Lotus Yoga NYC and it was pretty awesome to experience her energy and soulfulness right beside me. If you're looking to visit NYC or take a staycation yourself, keep reading for details about the GIVEAWAY I'm offering with Dream Hotels.
When I entered my room at the Dream Hotel Midtown, this was the first thing I saw: a framed picture of my 2 puggles, a bottle of champagne and a gluten-free birthday cake!
Look for them in the canned and jar food aisle where you'd find things like stewed tomatoes, pasta sauces, etc. In addition to raising awareness for this extraordinary event, I raised money to support it. To some extent that's true because of the amazing and innovative fashion sense people have here. Serene Social has teamed up with Lululemon and Suja for this gathering to kick off the calamity of fashion energy that's about to overtake the city. Her prodigees went on to turn barre fitness into a successful business of popular, packed classes.
Quite honestly, I felt like I was hiding out, as if I had taken off for an exotic and faraway retreat. But the real highlight was scoring my room at the Four Seasons for their celebration of Global Wellness Day, which was served up as a full week of fit & healthy activities.


Men don't like to be kept in the dark, because they know whatever you give them they'll have to top when it's time to shop for you. I knew this year for Father's Day I was going to give my dad a travel bag that would help him do this.
Here's the link again on Lucy's Blog :)]]>On June 21st, Athleta was the headlining sponsor of Solstice in Times Square put on by Times Square Alliance for it's 13th year. When Katya first reached out to me and shared a bit of her life with me, I was really impressed with her background and how she left a traditional career path to pursue an endeavor her heart was stuck on (racing). She works out with me, attends my events and has modeled for print ads (like the one above which actually never ran) and in magazines with me.
Just to clarify, the Volvo Ocean Race is ongoing and was in full effect while I was on this press trip, but a few crew members at a time are allowed to come off the boat for a leg of the race and rest up. Test everything you plan on wearing for the official half marathon race day during your last few training runs. I'm feeling really grateful for 2.5 years of working with them to report on the hottest fitness trends happening nation-wide.
His blender and latest book came out of his own need to slim down for TV and press appearances. I convinced her to meet with me and give me career advice so I will keep you filled in on how that goes. She inspires women through her business Mama Glow, her "hip guide" on prenatal wellness, her beautiful affirmationsThis is my new TomTom Spark Cardio + Music and GPS fitness watch. She presented her "Search Don't Rescue" collection, which really appealed to me because I'm a huge fan of monochromatic, flowy dresses and pairings.
Michelle Austin, founder of the Fluidity Barre, was one of her students among others like Exhale founder Fred Devito, who I interviewed HERE.
If you set a level of expectation, they will ALWAYS look forward to your gifts and rave about them in conversation.
Let me guess, you know how to break a sweat but you also look forward to showing off how well you clean up and glow like a pro.
This is the yearly event where yogis come together right smack in the middle of Times Square to celebrate the day the sun is at its highest position in the sky for the longest period of time. But what you're paying for is great technology, an app that doesn't baffle you but inspires you and a piece of jewelry that looks good with anything you wear.
A really astounding young lady and go-getter herself, Katya Meyers, created the interview series to share what happens behind the scenes in the lives of successful health & wellness oriented professionals. Spirit Junkie and the book A Return To Love by Marianne Williamson really helped open her mind and heart to all the amazing possibilities that can happen when someone chooses love over fear. I used to think of her as just my mom without fully worshipping everything she's accomplished.
It's a long trip (9 months at sea!) and it's a tremendous challenge for these women, requiring massive teamwork and goal-setting.


I also wanted to take a moment to tell all of you that I'm always here to answer your questions about health & wellness so feel free to contact me. The blender and book duo make a nice gift for someone on a mission to lose weight in the healthiest way in 2015. I'm honored to be a part of her series and my interview is LIVE and ready to be heard by clicking RIGHT HERE. So, I did for a little bit but then over time I became empowered by how great my mid-30's felt. Then again, the idea of spending hours--maybe even days--shopping for the perfect dress was something I just couldn't do ESPECIALLY during the height of Christmas-time shopping.
The first 6 are larger presents that require wrapping, the last 6 are stocking stuffers that pack a big bite for being so small. I've been running long distances since highschool and to this day I'm still discovering new tricks for a smoother run. I love clothes, shoes, accessories, and the feeling of being well put together--yes, even for the gym! It's simply amazing, so I was thrilled to see her join what has become a yogi cult favorite summer event. But when it comes to fitness--my area of expertise--there's no fooling me or anyone else for that matter.
They either burnt out or broke after 1 drop and then it was back to the Apple store for a new one. Find out what's in store for you and please check out this Facebook Invitation (where I'd love for you to RSVP). My aunt is no stranger to disease as a survivor of Melanoma tumors and having recently lost her beloved husband to Esophageal cancer, so I decided to take heed and do a little research of my own. Many thanks to Altchek MD for all the attention and for making my skin look so great at 36 years old.
I've always loved Nelly's music but I was truly thrilled at the idea of going to a glam event that would surely bring good vibes to a recently damaged city and it's people following the events of Ferguson. Around the time I turned 12, my dad took me to get a "Mariah Carey" perm because I wanted Mariah's exact hair from her music video Someday. I can only imagine how much these super stars have to workout to look so incredible, and a true diva likes to do things her own way.
