New Year of Adventures Style Post by Guest Blogger, Leah.

This New Year I decided to get out and do the things I love ALL the time. Traveling is my love and so within the first week of the New Year I already planned a way to get up and get out each month of 2014. Most of these adventures will require a plane, but what I always forget is that there are adventures waiting for me here and I can always explore right where I am. This weekend I went for a hike in the back bay during sunset and loved walking through nature on my own little adventure in my “backyard”. Wild adventures and crazy travels are no excuse to look sloppy, brands like Billabong make it easy for us adventuring type to dress the part. Vintage denim shorts, moccasins, and flower crowns are always a good idea. And with this fringe cardigan and dreamy tank, it got me wishing for some summer festivals. If you can’t travel far, try stepping out right where you are… and dress cool while you are at it.

Well whatever you did or didn’t consume/do, there’s never a better time for a swift kick in the butt than the beginning of the year. Whether you’re trying to trim down or tone up, stair workouts will give you long lean muscles and torch fat pockets.

I do this workout on a set of beach stairs with about 50 steps. If your local steps are shorter then just add more reps. Walk or slow jog in between each set on your way down to get a breather… (more…)
