Hey guys. Not sure if you knew but water intake is pretty much THE MOST IMPORTANT THING EVER. It affects how you feel, how you look, and your overall health, weight, and energy levels. And of course we know (and despise the fact) that hangovers come from dehydration (FML). We’ve all heard the “eight glasses a […]

It’s finally (almost, maybe, hopefully?) spring, or at least the snow and ice conditions are behind us (at least THEY BETTER F*CKING BE). Minus the debilitating pollen that comes in like Liam Neeson ready to find you and kill you from now until mid-May in Atlanta, it’s a great time of year to pound the […]

It has been a minute (and a half) since I’ve done an A-List, but I have some fun things to share so I figured it was high time to bring back the whole “girl about town” reputation (wait, that sounded slutty…) and show Atlanta some love. But first…HOW ABOUT THIS WEATHER, HUH? Newsflash: It’s winter. Moving […]

I don’t really know how else to say this without sounding braggy, so I’ll just blurt it out: I hardly ever get blemishes. BUT WAIT, don’t hate me yet—my skin is dry AF, so while you ladies with more oily complexions may be pimple-prone, I’m aging more rapidly than you as we speak. Crows feet […]

As much as I loved Gisele boxing out her Internet haters with her unnaturally perfect post-baby body (FML), this video/PSA from the UK gives me a whole new level of #ChillBumps. Because we work hard, sweat profusely, kick ass, and don’t all look like Gisele doing it (because no one does…except Gisele). Enjoy, you bad […]

GIRLS. LOVE. INSTAGRAM. The only thing girls love more than cupcakes, coffee, Emojis, new outfits, and skinny pictures of themselves are putting cupcakes, coffee, Emojis, new outfits, and skinny pictures of themselves on Instagram, so according to my genius deductive reasoning skills, that means they literally love Instagram more than anything else in the entire universe. As for […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 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 […]

It’s almost the freakin’ weekend, which in Atlanta means time to eat, drink, patio hop, go to a strip club (probably), and pray it doesn’t monsoon. Put this stuff in your Palm Pilot. EAT YOUR FACE OFF Smokebelly BBQ This is the new down-home Southern joint in Buckhead from our dude-bestie Trey and the guys […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Whew. I have finally recovered from Stellar Bodies two weeks ago and am here with another workout review (sans sexy video this time, SORRY). I am loving this workout that is sweeping/toning the nation and just touched down in Atlanta (hallelujah). Orangetheory is based around the science of heart rate-based interval training, so you know […]

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 […]

Guess what, guys?! I’m back on the workout train and feeling motivated (just like the rest of the assholes who are filling up your fitness classes and hogging your ellipticals for the next month). Since all I did from Thanksgiving to New Year’s was drink, go out to eat, and crush Christmas cookies, it’s time […]

I. Love. This. Playlist. As usual, it was mostly curated by our fitness expert/thinspiration Cara Weaver with a few doozies added by moi (ie. “Money Ain’t a Thang–forgot how dope that jam was) and it’s made for running, kickboxing, CrossFitting, Jazzercising, or just seeing how fast you can crush Christmas cookies at a holiday party. […]

First of all, to anyone who says “leggings aren’t pants,” you can stop reading right now and go F yourself. Sorry that was harsh, but those a-holes deserve it. We all know TIGHTS are not pants (which your mama should have learned ya’ by age 6), but leggings are a beautiful thing–they’re comfortable, versatile, HAVE […]

Uh oh, you guys. Holiday weight gain season is quickly approaching. Better work out extra hard now so you can break even when you pack on 12 pounds during Thanksgiving dinner and the two days following when you sit on your parents’ couch and pile-drive leftovers, pumpkin pie, and red wine (or is that just […]
