I am loving my prAna pieces from their new Spring line. It is super comfortable, and stylish enough to wear while running errands. I am sure I am not the only one that love athleisure wear. I wore this the other day, was in it most of the day, and didn’t want to take them off – I grabbed coffee with a friend, dropped off children, and wore it to my doctor’s appointment. Most of the time, I can’t wear my yoga clothes out, because they’re either not stylish or I don’t want to smell all day. The Ostara Top that I’m wearing in Coal is made with organic cotton, … READ MORE
It’s that time of year again where we can all say, “Yay!” to All Things Boysenberry! Lucky for us, we don’t have to go far, because it’s celebrated right here in Orange County where it became famous. The boysenberry is a cross between a loganberry, red raspberry and blackberry and is named after its originator Rudolf Boysen. Back then Knott’s Berry Farm was a working farm, and the Knott family were the first to successfully harvest and sell the berry. It has changed so much, but the berry is the still the same berry, and every year they throw a party for several days in honor of it. This year’s Boysenberry … READ MORE

My friends and I recently tried this Onyx Youth Magnet Mask from Korea. The product uses the power of magnets to lift away impurities, refine pores, and brighten the look of skin. We really had no idea, and everyone’s first reaction was the same – super surprised! We left it on for about 10 minutes then when it was time to use the wand, it was like magic lifting it all away. It left our faces moisturized. This cutting-edge technology relies on a process known as microcirculation which uses magnetic fillings to stimulate the blood flow through the thousands of microscopic blood vessels in our face. It uses a unique … READ MORE

It’s Back-To-School and back to meal planning! Planning weekly meals for the family is often challenging for me, because I only want to make one grocery run for the week. I can’t spend too much time putting it together so if I am missing an ingredient for the recipe, I will have to find a new one or improvise. Yesterday, I was running around town with my sister all day and had to rush home to prepare dinner. Luckily, I had items on hand to make two quick and easy dinners from freezer to table in less than 30 minutes. My sister helped, and they turned out great!
This month, we’re all gearing up for Back-To-School, and I’m working on a game plan so I don’t get anxieties this year. For example, I will try to avoid crowds by shopping early in the season and in the mornings. I’m already finding some good deals at the mall. This year I am “Pairing Up” with JCPenney! I like collaborating with JCPenney, because not only do I find affordable pieces and they have a great selection of licensed tees that we love, every year they roll out a program to help children in need. This year for two weeks (8/1 through 8/15), for every pack of socks or underwear sold, JCPenney will “Pair Up” and donate a pack to the Y to give to kids in need up to 750,000. What a great cause!
