Keep Moving

It’s as if a plague took over my otherwise consistently healthy + immune strong body + told me to hit snooze. After an entire week solid of feeling sick + run-down, i’m finding it difficult to continue my regular workout routine of 5x week boxing + kickboxing training. Because I have been feeling so weak, I made the un-wanted decision to take the week to let my body heal with rest.

What’s most frustrating is feeling like my week off of training has lost with it all the work I’d been putting in to help tone my muscles. So, in much need of motivation to get back into my routine, I decided to put together some workout inspiration to help get me motivated + excited about making the trek into the boxing studio after putting in a full-days work (+ commute). Maybe it just might spark something in you to keep moving too!

Summer Bright

Summer is in full swing + in Vancouver we’ve been receiving gifts of Vitamin D on the regular. I love exploring new products that will get me that ‘healthy glow’ + experimenting with some more daring (if you will) trends that might not make the cut during the darker more dreary months. Bright nails, fresh dewy makeup + big wavy, beachy hair are just a few of my favorites for beach season. As for my current summer loves, I’ve got you covered on all your beauty essentials & trends for this season.
