I’ve partnered with Kohl’s for the #MakeYourMove campaign.  There’s just something about doing yoga in the mornings for me.

Making My Move with Kohl’s This Summer #MakeYourMove

I’ve partnered with Kohl’s for the #MakeYourMove campaign.  2015 has been a doozy of a year, and I’m sad and ashamed to say that I lost my way a little, friends. All the hard work that I’ve done over the years to get my body (and me) back, I feel as though I completely undid […]

I’ve partnered with JOHNSON’S® Baby as an ambassador. My husband readily admits that he’s not the best at “doing hair.” I’m the hair-doer in this household, whether it’s a lattice braid, heart-shaped braid, or other “Hair Experiment.” My husband celebrates when he does a ponytail (it’s kind-of adorable).

Cinnamon Roll Pancake Bake

(I am a compensated Great Day Farms and Goodrich Farms ambassador.) My family is a bit cinnamon obsessed.

This […]
