Life With Leah* In 2013

A fun, more fearless 2013 is a great (though very Cosmo way) of describing this past year. Entering the new decade, I feel more enlightened and proud of what I’ve both succeeded and failed at. One of the absolute biggest highlights of the year was finding out I’m going to be an Aunt! Khloe will…

Countdown to 30….Part 2

  Let’s also title this Some Lessons Learned In 30 Years. 1. Mom is basically always right. No, seriously. I can maybe think of one time she wasn’t completely right. (But sometimes you just have to follow your heart.) 2. SAVE moolah for emergencies. Maybe in my 30s I’ll finally get this one right. 3….

Countdown to 30…Part 1

  Yesterday marked exactly one month till I turn the big 3-0. It was like a fire was lit under my tail. I was motivated to get so much stuff done, stocked my fridge with healthy groceries, worked out…I’m ready for this!! But first, I need to slim down some more and I have exactly…

Back To Yoga!

Yesterday I went back to yoga for the first time in months. I didn’t realize how much I needed it till I finally went. Shakthi, my instructor, is amazing! He teaches yoga in a way that helps to make me focus. No offense to other instructors I have had, but I’m so in my head that I…

My 2012…So Far.

They say there’s light at the end of the tunnel. You may be going through hell, but keep going cause you’ll get out before the devil knows you’re there. It’s true. I went through a couple of rough years a few years back. It was a time where there was more bad than good and…

Time To Play!!

I love summer! It’s the time of the year I feel myself come totally alive. I feel happier and prettier with my naturally bronzed skin, flip-flops, sipping wine on the patio with friends…but one of my absolute favorite things about summer are all the different things to do outside! I’ve made a list of a few outdoor…

My First Aerial Ribbon Class Experience!

I took my first Aerial Ribbon class last night. I had been anticipating this experience for over a week. I built up in my head how I would magically get it immediately and would be floating around like the Cirque du Soleil performers. I made sure I took the yoga class before it so I can…

I Forgot How To Breathe.

I know, you think that’s absurd. “Um, wouldn’t you be dead then?” is what you’re probably thinking. But seriously, how often do you really breathe? I mean, inhale slowly and deeply through the nose, followed by exhaling completely through the mouth. I forgot how to do it! Life has been so crazy, stressful, challenging, etc…that I…
