Hey Lovely! I am SO happy that there is a ton of awareness around breast cancer in October and prostate cancer in November, but one cancer that doesn’t get enough attention? Gynecological Cancer. September is gynecological cancer awareness month and my mission is to help spread awareness about a type of cancer that is to often overlooked in the media. I’m also hosting a fundraiser to donate money to the Foundation For Women’s Cancer (details at the end of of this post). Gynecological cancer is what took my Mom’s life 14 short years ago at the young age of 45. Recently, my…

Hey Lovely! As many of you know, I am an avid Suja juice drinker. I love Suja juice because it is made using cold pressure and HPP (high pressure processing), is always organic, non-GMO, chemical-free, filler-free, gluten-free, preservative-free and just PURE goodness for your body. Their new Suja line, sold at grocery stores and Target, was designed to be an affordable luxury at just $3.99 a bottle. No other juice company can touch what they are doing, which is pretty badass if you ask me. I’ve done numerous juice cleanses with Suja, I subscribe to their monthly delivery service (get 6…

Hey Lovely! I am a strong believer that every single day is a new opportunity to be better than the day before.

As you know, I’ve been training…

In a world filled where rushing around, shoveling down food to make it through the day and snapchatting the entire experience is expected, our nerves, cortisol (stress hormone) and chakras all get whacked out. It took a rude awakening for me to see that this type of lifestyle not only disturbs your flow, but it can cause all kinds of medical problems down the line. I never thought I was a stress case until I went in for acupuncture and my practitioner looked me dead in the eye and said I needed yoga STAT! She told me my breath was all…
