I Need Your Help! Plus, Before and After Friday Favorites.

Happy Friday!

I hope you all have had a great week and have some fun, spring- like plans for the weekend. It’s been pretty hectic around these parts, so I welcome the next couple of days off with open arms.

I am going to a detox workshop at a local hot yoga studio on Saturday and I’m pumped! I haven’t taken a class, in what feels like forever, so I am a little nervous! I’ll tell you all about it next week.

I am not one to ask for favors, but I’m feeling pretty shameless this week. I found out about the MPG Messenger Search a few days ago, and while I am not one to enter online contests, I couldn’t resist this one. Here is why:


I feel like this would be a great platform for sharing my fitness journey, knowledge and hopefully inspire others.

Trail running

To say I am excited about getting in more trail runs, is an understatement.

I like trail running in the winter, but I prefer the warmer weather because, well I prefer warmer weather for almost anything.



Gold accents and DIY inspiration board

I spray painted some knickknacks when I was redecorating my office and it looks adorable. The idea is from Pinterest, of course.

New Skincare Regimen 

I told you guys I bought a Clarisonic right before Christmas and was anxious to see how it was going to work. Well, I do love it, but it didn’t completely clear my face up like I thought it would.

I went to the dermatologist and when I told her what birth control I was on she said all of her patients on the Mirena breakout. She gave me a prescription, but I just really didn’t want to be on more medicine.

My face wash ran out so I started using coconut oil with my Clarisonic and my face hasn’t been this clear in a long time. It has lightened up the dark spots and smoothed out imperfections.
