A Match(a) Made In Heaven

Have you ever had a cup of coffee that gives you the perfect amount of even keel energy that’s free of erratic foot shaking, finger drumming and mindless rambling about your reason for liking Cocoa Puffs over Cocoa Pebbles (hello, they don’t get soggy 5 seconds after adding milk)? Coffee that just seems to effortlessly lift you up for a pleasant, perspiration-less extended period of time  and then gently places you down like a slow drifting cloud once it’s wondrous effects leave your system? No? That’s because that cup of coffee is a unicorn.

Believe me when I say that I love coffee and the time we spend together. It’s rich, nutty flavor and the crazy energy that comes with it are near and dear to my heart. That was before I met Matcha.

I love trying new, healthy alternatives and sharing results so when I started hearing/reading more and more positive feedback on Matcha and it’s side effects (or lack thereof), I had to order a Matcha Green Tea (ceremonial grade) set so I could try it!

Athleisure: Promoting Laziness or Promoting Wellness?

So, there’s been an ever growing trend and it’s really about to go mainstream in 2k15, it’s called Athleisure (ath-leesure). Most of you already know what this is, and if you think you don’t, you will realize that a large majority of people (men and women) alike have been following the “new” trend for quite some time already. Athleisure is simply wearing athletic clothes in and outside of the gym. I, for one, love this. As a girl who feels super comfortable in flattering, tight black yoga pants and top long enough to cover the parts that matter, I obviously vote yes for the Athleisure movement. Not to mention, the simple act of just wearing “gym clothes” is a great motivator (I think) to be active and get a workout in. The trick to Athleisure, however, is to keep it fashionable, aka no butt cheeks peeking through those Lulu’s. What I’m saying is, you can’t just throw on your old (somewhat high water) circa 2005 Express yoga pants and call it a day. Continue reading
