CAN I GET AN AMEN?! #thisis30

My sort of lemonade stand...also do they serve wine here? 🍋🍊
-
Truthfully, I’ve been pretty under the weather all week but I’m staying thankful for sweet opportunities with best friends in one of my favorite places #LA 🙏🏻

All-Star Weekend is in full swing here in LA 🏀✨🙌🏽 Best part has been reuniting with all my @adidaswomen babes 🙏🏻 Thankful to surround myself with the type of women that inspire me, elevate me, and create more ambition within me. ✨ What’s the one trait you value most in a friend?

👀If you’ve been watching my instastories you already know I’ve been testing the NEW @clinique FIT Workout Foundation + Mascara to add to my GYM-TESTED makeup and skincare video on YouTube...and good news, the verdict is in and the video is live NOW on my YouTube channel! 🙌🏽 #ad #skincare #gym #beauty

Of all the people you can love, make sure you love YOURSELF the most. 💕✨#valentinesday #alwaysbeyourownboo

Lands in LA...instantly becomes Beverly Hills Grandma or Clueless cast memeber 🤷🏼‍♀️✨ #TRAVEL #LOSANGELES

A man was standing next to me at Sephora when I was looking at this lipstick today when he asked...
-
“Think you can pull it off? That’s quite a look...”
-
This photo is dedicated to him, and to all those people in my life and yours who’ve made us ever doubt that we can do whatever the hell we want. 👊🏽
-
Also, we chopped my hair yet again today. Thank you @tousledbyjae for always making me feel like a queen, for never doubting my hair-brained ideas, and for making me laugh along the way. 💇🏼‍♀️ #girlpower #haircut #newhair

Take me back to Paris 📍🍷🔭
-
I’m heading to LA on Tuesday and then Mexico City right after that...where are y’all going on vacation this year? i need some recs of best places to go in 2018!
-
Turns out having a cold and being in bed translates to shopping, Black Mirror binging and some major WANDERLUST 🌙 #TRAVEL #LETSGO

💋Y’all were brave and asked some great questions about staying active during that time of the month—-> 🙌🏽 I love being able to talk about stigmatized issues like periods with you guys. It’s so important that we more openly share about reproductive health and with the help of @tampax Pearl Active I think we started a good dialogue in my newest YouTube video. 💫Check it out and let me know if you have other questions here in the comments (or feel free to DM me if you wish!) 💕LINK IN BIO #GetInMotion #ad

What’s the one thing in your fitness game that you would change if you could? 🤷🏼‍♀️
-
Mine was getting rid of my fear of sucking at something...A fear that kept me from trying new things in the training world for a long time. I was afraid to run, afraid to spin, afraid to go to a class, and most recently afraid of hot yoga. But then, you own it. Take a chance.
-
There’s power in a baby step my friends. 🙏🏻
-
Also so many of you have been asking about these bomb new shoes in my stories...let me formally introduce you to the Alphabounce BEYOND 😱 This is a great running shoe but I’m also loving it for HIIT + strength workouts due to the really supportive sole structure! Y’all are always looking for sneaker recs and these are a banger. ✨👟👟
-
{I linked these in my instastory today and saved them in the “FIT GEAR” section of my story highlights on my profile if you wanna take a peek!} 😘

#createdwithadidas #alphabouncebeyond

This is your reminder that you have no need to measure yourself to anything or anyone that exists on social media. ✨ Our camera rolls have more of this than perfection. How I wish we could learn to love that more....
-
My hope in posting these types of photos isn’t to be harsh with myself, but moreso to prevent you from being harsh with yourself. 💕
-
Fuck the highlight reel. Find people who will laugh at your outtakes with you.

Feeling all the retro vibes at the @drjart Shake It Up Art Studio event ✨ I was advised not to lay on the disco balls so this was the next best thing 😂Shop these super fun masks @sephora with the link in bio babes! 💕#shakeandshot #ad #drjart

One of the most common questions is, “How do you stay motivated to workout consistently?”
-
People might suggest putting your phone across the room with an alarm, booking classes in advance, buddy workouts, setting your clothes out the night before and a whole lot of other surface-level suggestions but how do we actually get to a place of *feeling* motivated, rather than putting it on like a costume?
-
For me, I had to go deep. All the way down into my soul to dark corner where forgiveness exists. Learning to increase my forgiveness quotient in LIFE, has freed so many things that bound me before...motivation being one of many.
-
You’re probably thinking I’ve officially lost the thread here, right?
-
It’s not just about forgiving others, it’s about forgiving ourselves for not always being our best. In fact, you can only be your best, once, so why torment yourself over not reaching it every time you attempt something? YOU LITERALLY CAN BE YOUR BEST ONCE ...SO LET THAT SHIT GO.
-
Breathe.
-
REMEMBER...Motivation and change are much more lasting if they come from a place of forgiveness and love, rather than punishment or self-loathing.
-
I promise if you learn to swiftly forgive yourself for having an off day in class, or for not waking up in time to get a workout in, or for having one too many bourbons on a Wednesday...feeling motivated will come much more easily over time.
-
My friend @thekatharris shared an anecdote that stuck with me yesterday...when a baby is learning to walk, takes three steps and falls, we don’t punish them for falling, we celebrate the steps.
-
Today I sucked at @soulcycle. I was tired and felt sorta slow. I stayed out and up really late last night (was totally worth it btw). I feel like I’m getting sick. But I was able to walk out of the studio this morning, proud of being present, rather than being my BEST. God bless having 45 minutes of imperfection.
-
Forgive yourself for the falling, get fucking excited about the steps instead.

99 Problems but having badass girlfriends ain’t one. 🍒
-
A shit snowday was somehow brightened by way of breakfast with this piece of magic. 🔮 Love your creativity, easy way of existing, and hatred of American tea @esteelalonde 💕
-
It’s important to tell our friends why we love them, so let’s do that. Tag one friend in the comments and tell them one specific thing you adore about them 💕 Spread light ✨ #friendship #girlgang #girlpower #ladies

I became much better at loving myself when I started growing my greatness, rather than fixing my “flaws”.
-
Turns out they weren’t flaws at all, they were the twists and turns that made my story, mine. Truly, truly they come into focus when we find the good within...that existed from the start.
-
You are worthy.

My @adidas fam never ceases to impress me with the new new 🙏🏻 Pretty much anything that makes me gain style points before, during, and post workout.... I’m sold on.
-
Enter....the Z.N.E. REVERSIBLE bomber jacket, the only issue is I can’t decide which side I like it best, good thing I can wear both, if only I could have all my clothes be reversible... would solve a lot of my tiny apt issues 🤔🤷🏼‍♀️⚡️ swipe through and tell me which is your fave! #zne #createdwithadidas #adidasambassador

⚡️INTRODUCING MYSELF ⚡️
-
I haven’t done this in forever and there are so so many new friends here that I thought it might be good to properly say hello.
-
I started this account about 2.5 years ago...I was interviewing for a social media job in the fitness industry. I didn’t get past the phone interview with my 300 followers but I continued to post because I loved connecting with new people around the world.
-
2 weeks later I was let go from my job in the architecture/design industry...my boss paid me for 2 months so I could go start my own company. I was scared shitless.
-
So, I started an event planning company which was awesome...I loved celebrating things with people. I’m taking a break from my event planning company but turns out, this job being a weirdo on the internet let’s me still celebrate people in a new magical way.
-
I cry at least once a day...usually from your kind messages or stories. 99% happy cries.
-
I started here as a fitness account after losing 70lbs through healthy life choices, but now I try to just talk about LIFE. One day it could be my favorite skincare, travel tips, feminism, fitness, or relationships...as long as it’s something I believe in, im gonna be chit chatting about it.
-
Deathly allergic to cats. ☠️
-
Being attacked by pigeons or crickets...equally my nightmare.
-
I’m 32 and 5’8 and my parents are still alive. These are the most googled things about me.
-
I’m a feminist, believer in the good of the human spirit, fighter for the under-represented...will talk politics and lipstick in the same sentence. We can disagree on either or both and still be friends.
-
I curse a lot. Sorry Mom!
-
I’m an only child and hate sharing food, but will gladly buy you a second of whatever I’m having. I also don’t like leftovers...both of these things I’m working on.
-
The Thong Song means a lot to me and thank you @sisqo for following me on Instagram.
-
I gonna write a book, make you a podcast, and hopefully white-knuckle through 5 min of open mic stand up this year. (Already sweating).
-
I guess the most important thing is that I wake up everyday deeply joyful that I have the honor of knowing you all. Welcome. Hi. Glad you’re here. 👋🏼

As I instastoried some new skincare products I was trying tonight, it occurred to me; I would never have been doing this 5 years ago.
-
I mean not the skincare stuff but moreso, the documenting a night at home. A Saturday night in particular.
-
5 years ago I would’ve worried that I was missing out on a crazy night out with friends. And if I WAS home on a Saturday night, I dare not tell anyone...god forbid anyone know that I didn’t have major plans or that I was GASP...by myself when everyone else was out having the BEST night ever.
-
How age and time and maturity heal those parts of us that are scared to admit we aren’t always the center of the social sphere.
-
How they repair the notion that tiredness is weakness.
-
How they reinforce that CHOOSING to be alone does not equate to loneliness.
-
And if it does at times...that you’ll survive. It means you’re human.
-
Those things...age, time, maturity take FOMO and transform it into security and the knowledge of when we need REST.
-
It was a revelation to me, gladly broadcasting tonight that I was at home. <covered in the above mud mask> Without worrying what anyone would think of that. It felt good to feel good ABOUT MYSELF...doing exactly what I needed FOR MYSELF.
-
Other people’s opinion of the quality of your life and the way you live it pales in comparison to being in tune to what you *actually* need.
-
SEEMING COOL< THRIVING

⚡️🤑Okay I’m officially a weirdo but I love stop motion videos and made one yesterday as I was unboxing my @casper mattress and setting up my new bed ...I don’t know why these are so satisfying to watch LOL.
-
I tried to do one of them building by bed but the delivery men thought I was being weird by filming them...and I kinda can’t blame them because they’re right about me,strange bird over here 🤷🏼‍♀️😂.
-
P.S. I slept on this new mattress for the first time last night and got my first truly restful sleep in weeks. Praise. 🙏🏻

#sponsored. 👀👀Find someone that looks at you like I’m looking at this breakfast sandwich 😂😍 Perfect breakfast pre-soulcycle on the go was this bacon, egg, and cheese with extra avo from @panerabread 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽 What’s your favorite pre-workout fuel? #yolkporn #respecttheegg

EXTROVERT VS. INTROVERT⚡️ What do you consider yourself? I used to think I was 100% extrovert through and through but as I get older, I need more alone time.
-
I’m not sure if it’s possible to switch mid-life but I’m wondering if I’m now an extroverted-introvert or perhaps an introverted-extrovert? 🤔
-
Have you thought about how you identify? To my understanding, extroversion and introversion are decided based on where you gain energy. Extroverts through being with others and introverts through being alone 🙌🏽 But my question is, I feel like I fall into both categories. For example, I’m super low energy today because I’ve had zero alone times this week, but when I’m alone too long...I need people as much as I need food and water.🙏🏻 I’m like...can someone play with me please?!
-
👉🏼What would you define yourself as? Have any of you done any personality tests or anything similar? I would love to do a few , if so share in the comments so we can all do it! 🙌🏽 If you end up taking one let me know your results and which one you did!!
-
P.s. I’m a quiz nerd. 😂

Surrounded by plants 🌱, friends 👯‍♀️, and new insider knowledge (guys I finally found out what an adaptogen is! 😂) ...such a fabulous morning with @avoninsider learning about their brand spankin’ new ESPIRA supplement line. 👊🏽 These help with calming ya down😌, better sleep 😴, more energy😜, and getting my missed nutrients in so basically...I cannot wait to try and report back!

✨WHEN INSPIRATION DRIES UP✨ A lot of people pre write posts or captions... I’ve never really been good at that. I always crave talking about what’s on my mind at the very moment.
-
So everyday I consider what’s taking up my mental space, and I write about it here in hope that you might meet me somewhere in the middle. Connection. ⚡️
-
But what happens when there’s nothing particularly interesting, funny, or inspirational to share?
-
I’ve been having a few days of that, if I’m being honest. Sometimes I worry that I’ll run out of things to talk to you guys about. That I’ll encounter a writer’s block that might never thaw out.
-
But somewhere inside this void of inspiration, I found a little something. That something is an acknowledgment that we all have moments of being lackluster. We all have moments when we don’t feel happy, sad, passionate, fierce...or any emotion really, at all. A temporary emptiness.
-
I think the lesson I’m supposed to learn and share today is that sometimes we just have to exist. No forcing being anything we aren’t. Admitting that we aren’t always at 100.
-
You are just as worthy when you’re at your best and worst... and everything in between. So am I. The good news is when we have nothing to say, we can still be here together and that my friends is inspiration enough for today. #bebetter
