So, starting in late August, I noticed I wasn't as 'trim' as I like to be. Was I fat? No. Was I unhappy with my body? Not at all. Were my clothes not fitting? Not really. But was I getting to the point where I felt like I wasn't wearing certain things in my closet because of the way they were fitting or how they looked on me (ex: I was reaching for dresses instead of shorts because I felt like it was more flattering at the tim...

I love protein shakes for breakfast. Of course, eggs and stuff are great but for whatever reason I love something cold in the morning (maybe it helps to wake my ass up?) 

We all have our favorite flavors around the holidays. Pumpkin, peppermint, cinnamon, etc. For me, I happen to love cherry (which is probably why I love Mad Elf from Troegs and Shiner Cheer). Because I can't indulge everyday on 11% craft beers, I stick to my fa...

MY LORD, IT'S BEEN A WHILE! I have had the busiest summer of my entire life. BMSHL Beauty had it's first "official" wedding season, I filmed the pilot for a TV series, and traveled literally everywhere. Needless to say, blogging took a backseat for a few months. But, we are back in business, y'all!

I figured the best way to start back up is to get y'all familiar with what I have been loving lately! I try to talk about most of m...

Welcome to my latest obsession: Matcha. 

Every blogger out there on the gram is taking super cute pics with their Matcha Lattes and I am too much of a basic bitch not to get my hands on one! 

Some of you may not even know what Matcha is. Matcha IS green tea. But instead of steeping the tea leaves in hot water, they grind the dried leaves into a fine powder. Matcha has a slightly sweeter taste that green tea, and can be blended i...

Some of the many things I have been loving in the month of March!


1. Fitbit Alta Gold | $149

I finally joined the Fitbit fam after much hesitation. I wasn't sure if I actually needed one or if I would even use it. Well, folks, I use it. A lot. I LOVE it. It's a nice reminder for me to get moving. I have noticed that since getting it, I have definitely been more active in my daily life than normal. I also love that I can track m...

I love blueberry everything. Muffins. Pancakes. Donuts. I don't discriminate. 

Normally, I opt for a bulletproof coffee & a protein shake in the mornings, but sometimes you just need something warm & hearty. That's where oatmeal comes in. 

I used to eat my version of 'Proatmeal' years ago when I had a six pack (seriously). I would mix a scoop of Cinnamon Swirl flavored protein powder from Cellucor with a half cup of oats and...

Living in Austin, TX, juicing & yoga was pretty much life (oh, and tacos). I, of course, had my fair share of green juices and had dabbled in one day cleanses here & there but never thought to do more than that. 

When I moved home to State College, I knew the days of adorable juice places all over town were a thing of the past, until a friend let me know that there was a brand new place in town-- K2 Roots. PERFECT. 

I decide...

Literally, I could eat breakfast for every meal of the day! For me, I feel like breakfast is one meal where it is super easy to swap out bad ingredients for good without losing anything in taste. 

This is easily one of my favorite recipes for healthy breakfast! You can make this recipe as Pancakes, or as Waffles! Sometimes, I will make a big batch of Waffles & freeze them for an easy breakfast when you're on a...

For years I absolutely hated 'working out.' Years ago, when I first really decided to take a step in bettering my health and managing my weight, I thought that you absolutely had to do absurd amounts of cardio in order to burn fat. I thought the only real way to lose or maintain weight was to run. At one point in time I was running up to 10 miles a day. And guess what? I HATE RUNNING. I never looked forward to it. I would alwa...

I get so so many questions on dieting and overall health. Weight has been a struggle for me in the past but I have found that I feel my best when I focus on consistency and balance, rather than restriction. I figure that sharing how and what I am eating each day and why may be helpful to some of you. No, this wont always be perfect, and I'm ok with that.

So a few things you should know before I start this series on what I am ea...
