It’s official: Cold weather is a’coming. (Snow flurries on Halloween in Atlanta? I was drunk but apparently it happened.) But I do love to run with a chill in the air, provided the wind isn’t 4,000 MPH and I have the right gear. Here are some of the best items to keep you warm while […]

LadyinWaiting - edit

Staying hydrated is always in style (seriously, it’s like the #1 FREE AND EASY beauty trick), but these days you can make even more of a statement with all the fashionable and functional water bottles on the market. Say sayonara to the days of funk-tasting H2O due to cheap plastic, not to mention the the […]

chuice cover phtoos

A while ago, I wrote about Chuice–a ridiculously healthy raw food/drink that completely changed my life and body way back in October 2011. I drank it nearly every day for two years and even froze that ish and brought it to Europe with me in 2012 because there was no way I could go 10 […]

After years of waiting, I’ve finally found THE ONE. Obviously I’m talking about a blender. The Blendtec Designer 725 (AKA WildSide) is literally the smartest and most advanced home blender in the world (not mention attractive), so falling in love was easy. It has a 1725 watt motor–the most powerful in residential blending, so it reduces […]

gisele under armour

I just watched Gisele’s Under Armour commercial and cried. Definitely never thought I would write that sentence. I’m not a celebrity by any stretch, but with this blog, I put myself, my opinions, and my actions out into the world for public scrutiny, and I have received more meant comments than I can count (“You’re […]

hungover-working cameron diaz

Every summer, I go to Dewey Beach (the happiest place on Earth) for a week, and by Day 5, I am a zombie version of myself from all the partying. I somehow make it through the week, but then I need another full week to recover and a full month to get my body back […]

I just turned #Forever31, and I look back on the past year as the best yet–growth, change, struggle, triumph, love, loss, travel, and lots of vodka (per usual). I decided to compile some things I learned this year (or kinda’ already knew, but really had experiences with). There are definitely more (for example, how to zoom […]

Sometimes you can’t help but judge. Like if you met someone and they (seriously) said, “Look me up on MySpace,” I hope you’d back away as quickly as possible. Luckily, no legitimate human being still uses MySpace so that would never actually happen, but there are PLENTY of other things people still do that blow my […]

peachtree road race bandit

Remember back when I BANDITED the Georgia Half-Marathon and the Internet exploded with hateful runners who felt my selfie stunt robbed them of their running experiences for the rest of eternity? Well because I’m a terrible person and total narcissist, love to steal, refuse to pay for anything that goes to a good cause, and […]

bananas

Bananas are the Ryan Gosling of fruit. For the past six months, I’ve been eating a banana every day (sometimes TWO) and it has been a life changer. Check out the reasons why nature’s yellow boomerang is truly the most glorious of all. 1. Beats bloat. If you’re swollen from a salty meal (read: 829374928374 […]

The Internet is a glorious place. Even if you know nothing about nothing, it can educate you to GED status. Sure, some of it will be fake and you’ll probably believe it, but so what? The World Wide Web is abuzz with World Cup madness so I compiled some of the best articles out there so […]

world cup commercial beats by dre

Best commercial ever? Probably. Starts out like a movie trailer, cameos by Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Serena Williams, LeBron, etc., and that BADASS SONG. It’s five minutes long, but I guarantee you’ll watch the whole thing then want to go out and do something awesome (like buy Beats by Dre headphones if you don’t have […]

USA - The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show - Backstage

Recently, I did a post about the five fattest foods girls love to eat, and I think it got a pageview or two (million). Turns out, we ladies love feeding our inner fat girl and talking about it. But we all have an inner Gisele, too, and she likes to eat different stuff. Like this… […]

kind bars

I worry that someday it’s going to come out that Kind bars’ nutritional labels are wrong and they really are packed with calories and sugar (Kalteen Bar-style), because I just can’t understand how they are THAT GOOD and still good for you. It’s safe to say I have a unhealthy healthy obsession with these gems. They’re […]

flywheel never coast

Hold onto your hamstrings; it’s the giveaway I know many of you have been waiting for. That’s right: Flywheel Sports 5-packs. If you know me, you know I’ve been in a committed relationship with the indoor cycling studio for the last two+ years. Sure, I go on dates with other workouts, but no matter what, this […]

yoga couples retreat

Last week, I went to the Lunch Crunch class at my yoga studio, which is a 60-minute power session in the torture chamber extra hot room. This class is a doozy, and it’s only an hour because if it were any longer, it would be considered human cruelty. I set up my mat, and since […]

stic healthy is the new gangsta

Plenty of celebs eat healthy and brag talk about it, but if the average person ate the way Gwyneth Paltrow does, he/she should would be broke and hangry. Which is why I absolutely love this article I just stumbled upon (originally published in October), “7 Ways to Eat Good on a Hood Budget” by Stic […]

yoga kiss

You guys, I hate being hot. Don’t get me wrong—I love the beach, patio drinking (duh), and frolicking in the sunshine, but I loathe being sweaty, swamp ass-y, shiny-faced, frizzy-haired, and swollen. Also, sometimes when I get too hot, I almost pass out. One time I was in the shower with my ex and things […]

city skyline selfie atlanta

When I read this article titled “Half-Marathon Runner Passes Time On Her Run by Taking Selfies With Hot Guys“, I was like, WAIT A MINUTE. Half-marathon? I do those! Selfies? I do those, too! Hot guys? Of course I do those! And with the Georgia Marathon/Half-Marathon just a few days away, I knew it was fate […]

loser L

This weekend, I did not have one drink. And no, I was not in jail, rehab, or a dry county. I did not go out, put makeup on, wear anything without an elastic waistband, and barely interacted with people. And I loved it. What…a loser. Mind you, I had my weekend on Wednesday with the […]

Real housewives ramona convulsing

By guest blogger Kelley Hagen I’ve had horrific periods since puberty hit. Like, fetal-position-nausea-cramping-migraines-for-three-days kind of periods that made me want to kill myself. I seriously would’ve lost less blood from a gun shot wound, and I suffered through this torture month after month for 17 years because I was unwilling to take pharmaceuticals to […]

sochi double toilets

When I first heard the Olympics were in Sochi, I was like, Oh, Switzerland! Nice. Then I realized it was Russia, and I was like, What? Aren’t they kinda’ corrupt? Well, whatever, I’m sure they’ve got it figured out. I didn’t think much else of Sochi except that it was a cute name (like, for […]

sleeping cat

Now, I don’t mean the best way to wake up as in a California king on a private island spooning with a hot dude and you remembered to take your makeup off the night before and you don’t even have morning breath and your hair is perfectly tousled from the silk pillowcases. Because, duh. I […]

megaformer

As I pen this riveting review, it’s Wednesday night. And I am still feeling the bodily effects from a Stellar Bodies class…….ON SATURDAY. I mean, I’m no bodybuilder, but that is just bananas. Stellar’s SPX fitness uses a Megaformer machine that kicks your ass like no other. Using the evolution of Pilates, “it is designed to […]
