During the early days of YouTube (think 2007), beauty haul videos were very popular. Girls would show off the makeup that they purchased or accessories purchased from Forever 21. Five years later, they still finish on top. Occasionally I do food hauls to show you new finds at the grocery store or just what my [...]

Friday morning, the agenda called for CrossFit with Reebok. From my previous experience, CrossFit demo workouts tend to last 15 minutes, an intense 15 minutes but less than what my body is used to. The workout was harder than I expected in a good way, especially the pushup burpees! However as anticipated, the actual fitness portion only [...]

At Expo East, I only took pictures of my favorite products. Here are a few that I tried and was obsessed with. You probably haven’t heard of most brands, which is because they are small and new!

Besides certain baked goods, popchips, tempeh, and Shirtaki noodles, among my favorite vegan alternatives is protein powder. My two [...]

After working hard the past few days, I rewarded myself with not cupcakes but a manicure! I went to MiniLuxe on Newbury street which charges a hefty $19 for a simple manicure but enjoyed my experience with Sunny. I’m not big on rewarding myself with food because whenever I do, it ends up turning into [...]

On the weekends, my diet seems to take a huge u-turn most of the time. All week, I’m dead set on my routine and then the weekend comes and screws it all up making it that much harder on Monday to get back into the groove of things. During the summer, it’s challenging to make [...]

Summer weather can be “muggy,” so getting up early to get in a workout is sometimes the only way to guarantee a workout. If you don’t exercise in the morning, you need to stay hydrated and eat properly to keep energy levels up. People get out of work at 5 or 6 but have a [...]
