Summer Thighs/All Out Abs

Link to Summer Thighs/All Out Abs

  I vow to get in shape before being seen in a swimsuit each summer, and I neglect this vow after only a few days of effort nearly every time. Fortunately, I think I've finally pinpointed the source of my past failures:  I hate working out alone. Who doesn't, though? Where's the motivation in that? Realizing my weakness, I set out to find a workout partner (be it an actual friend or a stranger in a video reassuring me of my abilities). I happened upon both when I saw the...

Link to Dry skin brushing, anyone?

  Leave it to me to be the last person on earth to try something useful, but are you guys familiar with dry skin brushing? Danielle mentioned incorporating it into her daily routine a couple of months or so ago, and (as with most awesome things she tries) I simply told her to let me know how she liked it. I had all but forgotten about dry skin brushing until I saw a recent morning routine on No More Dirty Looks that mentioned it, and soon...

I'm currently reading Bossypants (and loving it), but I plan on reading the above gem when I finish. Danielle is letting me borrow both. Have I mentioned that she's the best?

  Danielle has been experimenting with a lot of homemade personal care products lately, and I wish I could say that I had the spare time available to join her. Since I don't, and since she's an angel, she has been concocting a few products for me to try as well. I've been particularly impressed with a witch hazel and lemon toner that she made, and it has even become a temporary replacement for the apple cider vinegar and green tea toner...

    Danielle made sushi roll edamame salad a few nights ago, and it kind of rocked my world. In case you can't tell what everything is in the tiny picture above, I'll list the components: organic romaine lettuce, edamame, brown rice, cucumber, carrot, green onion, nori, and avocado. The homemade dressing, Green Onion-Miso Vinaigrette, was probably my favorite part, and I plan to put it on so many future salads.   And here are a couple of links worth sharing: Chocolate Good for Heart?- This short article seems a...

Yesterday was Danielle's birthday, and I celebrated by making the tastiest strawberry cupcakes with buttercream. I won't lie: Kirby helped a good bit. Converting grams isn't something I'm awesome at doing.  I will pat myself (ourselves?) on the back, though, because they were way delicious. You'll try them if you know what's good for you.     That wasn't a threat.  I promise. :...

My actual birthday isn't until this Friday,  and I have a feeling more great gifts are on their way. Birthdays are the best! 1. As mentioned in her fantastic guest review,  Danielle bought me a Diva Cup for my birthday. She always gives the most useful and thoughtful gifts. I can't wait for my next period, which isn't...

Even the occasional reader of my blog has probably seen mention of my lovely sister, Danielle. She's basically my role model, and her countless healthy decisions have undoubtedly influenced the majority of mine. Today she'll be reviewing the Diva Cup, a product that I've heard only positive things about and cannot wait to try. Take it away, Sister! I’ve been experimenting with alternative menstrual products since around the time I left home for college. All the waste associated with conventional tampons and...
