Why You and Your Beau Should Workout Together

Why You and Your Beau Should Workout Together

I’ve always been a big fan of finding a workout buddy, but between work, blogging (my second job) and taking care of a home there isn’t much time for the gym, let alone have date night. But why not combine them? About a year ago I convinced Sahir to leave Orange Theory and join ClassPass with me. He was always doing group fitness and frankly…

What We Need To Teach Our Moms About Beauty

What We Need To Teach Our Moms About Beauty

There are literally a million things that we can learn from our moms, (no really but how do you fold a fitted sheet?), but the new-age of makeup is what our moms can learn from us.

The $100 Clothing Item You Need In Your Closet

The $100 Clothing Item You Need In Your Closet

The first time I wore leggings I’m pretty sure they were from Forever 21, cotton, and $8.95. The idea of hearing that leggings are $100 was utterly mind-blowing and almost laughable. As a college student I could maybe justify a $100 purse or perhaps even a pair of designer shoes in the triple digits, but a pair of leggings? Get outta here.

The Best Recipe for Thai Beef Salad “Nam Tok”

 Growing up, my family engrained in me an affinity for Thai food. It’s hands down my favorite cuisine, there can never be enough coconut milk, chili, or basil in any of my dishes. Of my many favorite dishes (Pad-See-Ew, Spicy Basil Leaves, Panang Curry) is the healthiest of the options, the Thai Beef Salad. This “salad” is the best kind because it is more than just lettuce.

The Sleep-Ruining Mistakes That You Are Likely Making

At the end of a crazy day, all we want to do is climb into our beds and fall asleep while dreaming of Nutella waffles, but sometimes that’s easier said than done.
