De-stress with Yoga

We know wedding planning is stressful. If soaking in the tub and wine aren’t doing the trick, try some yoga.

Yoga is a one of the oldest and best stress relievers for your body.

It’s not only good for stress relief, it’s also a low impact form of exercise that is good for your mind too.

Below our some of our favorite poses:

Child’s Pose

Like a child, this pose puts you in a fetal position. It relaxes every part of your body – releasing tension especially in the lower back.

Mountain Pose

This balance pose helps to work on concentration. It brings your attention to the present. Thinking of the past can be depressing, thinking of the future can make you anxious. Being and living in the present is the way to go.

Tree pose

Downward Dog

Similar to child’s pose, downward dog releases tension over your entire body.

Down Dog

Corpse Pose

Just like the name sounds, you simply lay on your back with arms at your sides. Focus on deep breathing as you release stress through your fingertips.

Healthy YOU: Navigating Pumpkin Season

The leaves are turning and pumpkin flavor everything is all over the place. Oh how we love Fall.

Pretty

It’s so easy on these brisk mornings and dark evenings to cozy up on the couch and snuggle in.

Way too easy. Trust us.

The only more comforting than a soft blanket and your significant other is chocolate. And snacks. Maybe some Halloween candy too. (Fun size means more, right?)

Wrong.

Summer is not that far gone and Spring is right around the corner. The way far corner, but it’s still coming. So is wedding season. Remember that when you get the whip on your pumpkin spice latte.

Here are a few tips we like that help ease into the chilly weather without losing our calorie count completely.

  1. Drink Water. Warm or hot water specifically. Water helps to curb hunger and warmer water keeps you satisfied and cozy.
  2. Search sites like Pinterest and Spark People for healthier pumpkin flavored goodies that are easier on the scale.
  3. Bundle up and tough it out. You can still enjoy the outdoors, just break out those cute boots and scarf.
  4. Move your workout indoors. Take the hold off your gym membership or pop in a workout DVD.
  5. Soup it up! Soup is so entirely delicious, especially in the Fall. It’s also very filling and can be one of the healthiest options for comfort food.
  6. Make your own hot chocolate. So easy. Mix 1-2 TBSP of coccoa powder + 8oz of your favorite milk + 1 tsp of sugar. Thin out with water or add more powder for more thickness. Clean, healthy, and warm.

It’s so easy to cozy up into Fall! It’s one of the prettiest times of the year and also a kind of pre-test for the impending cookie season. Follow our favorite ways to keep in check this year.

Cheers!

Alternative Bachelorette Party Ideas

Jumping on the old party bus and bar hopping not your idea of a good time? You are not alone.  We have come up with some alternative bachelorette party ideas for you to celebrate with your girls before “I do”

How about a lake day? 

Day drinking or sober, who doesn’t love a day at the lake! Relax and get some sun with your favorite ladies. End the day with an all out buffet of your favorite summer food and Smores’s.

Go to the Races!

Horses or cars: who doesn’t love the thrill of a good race? It’s an event that everyone can attend and dress up for. You’ll surely attract (the good kind) attention.

What about a girly spa day? 

Manicures, pedicures and even a blowout are all affordable fun ways to glam up with the girls pre-wedding. Relaxation is key for wedding planning.

A grown up tea party

Gather the girls for finger sandwiches, scones and muffins. Most coffee shops have an area for informal parties and gatherings. Who doesn’t want to drink tea out of a fancy cup? Pinkie’s up!

Embarrassing Prom Trends from the Past

Prom is upon us. Every year the dresses get prettier and the stakes are higher to have ‘THE DRESS’ the whole school is talking about. But at what cost? Cool today, embarrassing years after high school.

Like all other fashion trends, there are certain ones we are happy to see go. Below we have listed some prom trends that we are embarrassed to ever have thought were cool.

Did someone tell them the bigger their sleeves were the smaller their waists look? Seriously though, were these even comfortable?

Bows. In un-flattering places. All presents should come wrapped with a bow, but if these dresses were gifts- we would return them.

Too much. Way to much. Where were these girls parents? Those who attended these grand march’s must have felt uncomfortable.

No words but had to share.

Happy Friday!
