Happy Thanksgiving to you all! May you have a day filled with fun, gratitude, relaxation, and…food. Great food. Enjoy every single bite. I tend to have Thanksgiving be a splurge day, and I eat pretty much anything and everything that’s up for grabs, figure out a way to have stuffing in each bite, and wake up wishing I could just eat the pecan pie for breakfast. I must confess that I also totally kick my butt in the gym the day before, and go on a run the morning of my beloved feast. It makes smothering every single bite that I can in gravy, just that more enjoyable.

Life and fitness is all about balance, and finding yours. So give thanks for good health, family, friends, holidays…and pecan pie.

Unfortunately some people grow out of some of these magical moments when they become an adult. Don’t let this happen to you, staying in your pajamas all day long is not only a possibility it’s super stylish … yes stylish. On my recent trip to the mountains I made wearing pajamas out of the house the coolest winter outfit yet.
This Tallow onsie has so many uses: wear it to bed, wear it while out holiday shopping, and, yes, wear it as you open your Christmas presents. There is no reason that us big kids can’t stay in PJ’s all day and show all our friends the new goodies! But this year I plan to sleep in! And speaking of presents, here is my holiday gift guide and wish list! (more…)

A Slice Of Life | The Ladies of the UCSB Surf Team

As I have mentioned before, I am in my second year at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Here at UCSB, we take our surfing pretty seriously. Our surf team competes in the National Scholastic Surfing Association, and over the years we have accumulated 14 national titles! Our team is filled with some amazingly talented and intellectual individuals, and together we have some really fun times, be it surfing, hanging out, or studying in the library (well, as fun as studying can be). While both the boys and the girls on the team are totally rad, we couldn’t convince the dudes to pose in little bikinis… so today, I wanted to introduce you to some of my best friends: the sunkissed ladies of the UCSB Surf Team.

Saturday Salute: Healthy Date Shakes

Healthy Date Shake Recipe
Our favorite Palm Spring attraction? Nope, not music festivals. Date shakes. Then music festivals. In that order preferably. Followed by another late night date shake fix. But it has come to our attention that music festivals are half a year away and dates shakes aren’t #1 on the doctor recommended list. So in the meantime, we’re getting a healthy fix of faux, but equally indulgent tasting, date shakes. Read on for the recipe… (more…)
