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.
You might think that living in downtown Manhattan, I already see it all when it comes to high style. If you haven't been to any of Serene Social's wellness events yet, you're missing out and should definitely go to the one happening tomorrow in NYC at the launch of New York's Fashion Week. I will be there and looking forward to some heart opening rooftop yoga atop the James Hotel in Soho. One of the best parts of going on a road trip adventure is everything that you see along your drive. Barre fitness is all about using small movements to work trouble spots and tone every inch of your body by working multiple muscles in unison. It beats being ohm-ing indoors, especially with the cool breeze off the harbor blowing through your hair. 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". Short girls are always getting brainwashed into thinking we can't pull off more eccentric looks or fashion trends that taller girls can get away with. Leave a comment below telling me which fitness myth gets under your skin and why it's soooo untrue.
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.
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! One of my recipes is an appetizer and the other is a side dish to accompany your turkey dinner.
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. 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. 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. During my little photoshoot in NYC's Meatpacking District, locals and tourists alike kept pointing out my gear to their group. 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. Personally, I just think it's a matter of choosing a pattern, color or length that best suit your legs. I like to uncover the healthiest and most active things going on in the places I travel to, and I always prefer to go off the beaten path. I'm feeling really grateful for 2.5 years of working with them to report on the hottest fitness trends happening nation-wide.
Check out my favorite winter workout that lets you skip the cold and will instantly heat up your muscles.
A stylist-blogger friend of mine by the name of NYCPretty (who knows more about fashion than any person I know) mentioned Rent The Runway to me. His blender and latest book came out of his own need to slim down for TV and press appearances.
Again, not complaining as worse things have happened in my life, but as all wavy and curly-haired girls know, learning how to style curls is freakin' hard! You will most likely discover parts of your body that you never knew were possible to work out or even move. 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.
Check it out because I go into detail about why these skincare products should be in your summer gym bag STAT!
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.
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.


Yoga's the one activity where even though you're not talking, you're still connecting with each other while on your mats.
The blender and book duo make a nice gift for someone on a mission to lose weight in the healthiest way in 2015. Not only do they keep you from squinting but they'll save those precious eye corners of yours from sun damage. So, I did for a little bit but then over time I became empowered by how great my mid-30's felt. In this case, it's imperative that your mats are side by side so you can visually bond with your friend. Or, I could be happy with the skin on my back and the beautiful things I have in my life at this very moment. 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.
They're grippy on the bottom so if you don't do barre, you can also just wear them at home instead of scratching up your nice wood floors with heels. The lotus flower is now bold, proud and sharp looking, which I personally think translates better to fitness and sport.
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! But when it comes to fitness--my area of expertise--there's no fooling me or anyone else for that matter. If you love fashion, I think it's crucial to inject it into everything you do, especially if it helps you complete a task with more OOMPH. They either burnt out or broke after 1 drop and then it was back to the Apple store for a new one.

Even if it doesn't (and if so, I'm jealous that you've mastered being a sane packer), I think this tip might come in handy. Many thanks to Altchek MD for all the attention and for making my skin look so great at 36 years old.
You'll eventually find yourself clicking on every square on his instagram profile much like I did. 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.
