Review: August 2016 Yogi Surprise Box


I was actually surprised when my Yogi Surprise box arrived this time around. I got the email that it was on its way but I completely forgot about it until I came home from work and there it was on my doorstep. It really was a nice surprise since I’m usually anxiously awaiting any packages I’m receiving. It was also a shock thought at how far into August we are getting. Really, where does the time go?? I’m pretty sure t’ll be New Years before I blink. The theme of the August 2016 Yogi Surprise box was, “Back to Balance.” I […]

5 Tips to Start Your Journey Towards Being Present


Being Present I’ve only been practicing yoga regularly for a few months now, but I think one of the best aspects of practicing yoga (and there are many) is the focus on being present. It’s one of the main reasons I love practicing and have been keeping at it consistently these past few months. Once I get on the mat, I forget about what happened earlier in the day or the list of things I need to do later on. Now don’t get me wrong, this takes a lot, like a lot, a lot of practice for me. And guess what? I […]

My Top 5 “Me” Time Activities


When I was younger, I never really needed “me” time. I felt like I was always trying to be out and about, learning, exploring, and hanging out with friends, literally doing anything but being alone. I think when you’re younger, FOMO is way more of a thing. If there was ever a time I was just hanging out with myself, I felt like I was missing out on something better, whether it be going to see a movie, going to dinner with friends, or even just hanging out on the couch in a friend’s basement. As I’ve gotten older though, […]

Essential Oils: What are they?


As you know from this post, I recently bought a pack of essential oils and an oil diffuser. For some strange reason, this wasn’t a purchase I took very lightly. Why? Well, good question. I really don’t have a good answer to that. I guess it’s because I wanted to learn more first. I wanted to learn about what essential oils are and their benefits. I wanted to know if they were going to benefit my life and if buying the diffuser was worth it. It’s always good to do a little bit of research before you purchase a product, especially one that you’re going […]

Yogi Surprise Summer 2016 Box – Review


Along with their monthly subscription, you can opt to purchase Yogi Surprise bonus boxes throughout the year. The most recent ones have been the Earth Day Bonus box and the Summer bonus box. I opted to get the Yogi Surprise Summer 2016 bonus box this year based on the reveals that were emailed to my inbox. On a side note, Yogi Surprise is having a past boxes sale right now where you can order some of the past boxes at discounted prices. It looks like they do this every once in a while. It’s a single box sale and quantities are limited. […]

My First HelloFresh Experience


Hello & happy Monday! I can’t believe it’s already Monday. How was everyone’s weekend? Last week, I received my first HelloFresh box. Truthfully, I wasn’t going to give this box a chance (or any other meal subscription boxes for that matter) but I had a coupon code for it, it didn’t require any commitment, and I was too lazy to go grocery shopping so I figured why not. The amount of flexibility of this box is unbelievable. In a good way. First, there are three different box options: the Classic Box, the Veggie Box, and the Family Box. You can select the box […]

Yogi Surprise July 2016 Box — Review


My Yogi Surprise July 2016 Box finally came today and if you don’t feel like reading my whole post my overall opinion is, it’s amazing. The Yogi Surprise lifestyle box (they also have a jewelry box) comes with 6-8 full sized yoga lifestyle items and are vegetation and GMO free. The Yogi Surprise July 2016 is my first Yogi Surprise box, but definitely will not be my last. Subscribing to the box was a spur of the moment decision, and to be totally transparent, I was worried I wasn’t going to like my box / find it worth the price. I hadn’t […]

Weekend Moments: July 4th, 2016


HAPPY JULY 4th! Hello! How was everyone’s July 4th weekend? Did you make it to the beach? To a BBQ? To the pool? This post is a few days late, but better late than never, right? 🙂 This weekend was rather low key for me, but it was kind of nice since the past few weekends I’ve been taking advantage of the nicer weather and going to the pool, going hiking, going to the zoo, going to brunch, etc. We recently became zoo members and it’s been so nice (& strangely relaxing) to go and see all of the animals […]

Free Summer 2016 Activities - Baltimore, MD

Why, hello! I am beyond excited about this post because today I’m sharing with you a bunch of… FREE Summer 2016 activities right here in Baltimore!! Last Sunday, I went to one of my first free activities: a pure barre class for the Pure Barre facility coming to Canton.
