Fit Chic: Turquoise Workout Pants

April 16, 2014 in Fashion by Heather

Bright Pants Black TopThe weather in Alabama canNOT decide what it wants to do. Last week we had flooding and torrential downpours. Roads were closed. Homes were flooded, cars floated away. And then, it was clear and 80 degrees on Saturday. In fact, I got burned out by the pool. But today? I walk outside in my flip flops and was met with 50 degree temps, and a chilly breeze. CRAZY.

One constant in this crazy weather? My turquoise workout pants and this black Karma top. I’m living in these pieces right now. The turquoise workout pants are taking me right into summer with the bright cheery color and this black top cinches in in all the right places…

The Biggest Loser Interview with Gina McDonald

April 14, 2014 in Healthy Living by Heather

St. Vincent's East Presents The Biggest Loser Audition TipsAs I mentioned last week, I was honored to be asked by B Metro to cover The Biggest Loser pre-audition tips session with season 14 winner, Gina McDonald, at St. Vincent’s East here in the Birmingham area. I took that opportunity to ask her about healthy meals she likes and got to interview St. Vincent’s East President and COO Michael Korpiel, as well as bariatric surgeon, Dr. Miles.

I was excited to learn about Gina’s healthy quick go-to meals, Dr. Robert Miles’ tips on healthy eating for weight loss (hint: he loves Clean Eating like I do), & Michael’s take on getting healthier in Birmingham and how St. Vincent’s East is trying to aid in doing just that.

Daily Greens Juice

April 8, 2014 in Clean Eating, Healthy Living by Heather

Delicious Juicing from Daily Greens

Those of you who have stuck around here for a while know that I have a major affinity for juicing. It’s a great way to get in your veggies on the go, it helps keep you fuller for longer, and juices taste delicious once you get used to them. If you don’t believe me, listen to the founder of Daily Greens who used juicing as a means to help her recover from a battle with breast cancer.

My Favorite Self Tanners

April 5, 2014 in Lifestyle by Heather

No Fuss Self Tanners

I have been on an endless hunt for the best self tanners for face and body since high school. For years, I’ve been hopping around from self tanner to self tanner just buying whatever I could find on sale or whatever I saw in a magazine was the newest and best one to try. But now, I have found my holy grail! These two are the best self tanners I have found hands down. I’m not kidding you when I say that people literally comment on how tan I look when I put these on…wait for it…after 1-2 applications!

Veggie Noodles

Awesome vegetable peeling tool for low carb, clean eating and paleo meals

*This is a sponsored post and includes an affiliate link through Amazon. I’m so very grateful for my sponsors!

I can hardly contain my excitement that these two items came in the mail last week! Ever since I had a raw spaghetti dish at The Pantry (a local farm to table restaurant in Birmingham), I have been wanting to try my own recipes for veggie noodles. However, it seemed too complicated and overwhelming. But THEN I found out about Briefton’s tools  and recipes that allow you to make these healthier dishes without all the hassle and mess. And in my case, probably bloody fingers. :-( I’m a little bit of a klutz so anything that helps me simplify, I’m all about it! Read the rest of this entry →

April 1, 2014 in Healthy Living by Heather

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Dr. Pepper Snapple Group but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #TENways  http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

Swimsuit Ready TipsSpring break has come and gone….and summer starts June 21! That means lots of beach time, denim cutoffs, and bathing suits are coming right up. I don’t know about you but I’m excited! Summer is such a fun and carefree time of year that has me staring out the window half the day wishing I could be soaking up the sun on the quad at Samford University again. If you’re feeling less than enthused about running around in short shorts, dresses, and bathing suits, it’s time to ship shape ladies. ;)

Birmingham’s Best: FoodBar

March 31, 2014 in Date Nights, Lifestyle by Heather

FoodBar Steak

Holy yum. Food Bar was a true delight for me because it is centered around farm to table cooking! I had the pleasure of checking out FoodBar with the hubs 2 weeks ago for a fun date night and we were definitely impressed. One of my first impressions from the website that gave me a ding, ding, ding, “You’re going to like this!” feeling was the motto, Not pretentious. Just delicious.
