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 […]

HEY Y’ALL. I don’t always do this (says every girl before she sleeps with a guy on the first date), but I’m throwing out some fun Atlanta-only stuffs happening this weekend, so get ready to let your hair down and have a hootenanny. If you are reading this and don’t live in Atlanta, I’m sorry […]

by Jennifer Lingvall, Founder of Wigwam Fest I am grateful for my body every day–that I have the ability to move and be alive. For a brief time, I wasn’t sure that would be the case. Three years ago I was diagnosed with an aggressive triple negative breast cancer. I was barely 31 (with no […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

It’s Labor Day weekend but it feels like St. Patrick’s Day was yesterday (WTF). It’s time to squeeze in all the things you planned on doing this summer but didn’t get around to like traveling the world and getting six-pack abs. What? Or just (attempt to) get a tan and eat seasonal foods. Which brings me to […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 can’t figure out why the kids run past my house on Halloween each year. I’m always dressed up in a cool costume (a carrot) and I hand out the good stuff (fresh kale) instead of cheap Sweet Tarts! And I’m very friendly, inviting them to stop and burn off some of that candy so […]

What? You don’t have a personal chef at home preparing healthy, delicious meals for you to sit down to when you come home from a long day starving and ready to attack your pantry? Well me neither. And until I do (a girl can dream), I have to make this happen on my own OR […]

There is ONE thing all naturally beautiful, youthful-looking women swear by and it’s not an expensive serum, diet, exercise regime, or plastic surgeon. This magical secret is…drumroll please…have you guessed it yet?…wait for it… WATER. I know what you’re thinking. #NoBrainer, right? But when I say water, I mean LOTS of it. I got an […]
