Can you believe that Memorial Day and July 4th weekend are just around the corner?! Summer is almost here, which means lots of weekend getaways and quick overnight trips. I don’t know why it seems so much easier to pack up and go in the summer season, but I love it! After our recent weekend away in Vermont, I was looking through my duffles/totes and realized it was time for an upgrade. It’s so nice…

The other day, temps hit nearly 80 degrees here in Massachusetts and they’re projected to climb that high again today, so I’m super excited that summer is right around the corner. We have a beach sticker, and I know we’re going to spend a lot of time there in the coming months. Let’s just say there’s going to be a lot of long hours of fun in the sun! Speaking of which, restocking our sunblock…

Today is the day!!! You guys know that I 100% live in leggings. They are basically a wardrobe staple over here! 🙂 I prefer to wear leggings over “real people clothes” any day! As a blogger and mom with a crazy, busy, and active lifestyle, I often go straight from the gym to running errands and then on to work calls/meetings with no breaks, so it’s super important for me to have activewear that is…

Hi, guys! Happy FRIDAY to you! I can’t believe Mal’s spring vacation is over just like that. I feel like we were just celebrating the start of it. We really didn’t do all that much this week, so HOW does that happened? Oh, well. Summer vacation is coming soon, right? Honestly, I don’t know… spring even seems a zillion years away. Is it freezing where you are? As long as there’s not snow, I’m happy!…

Hi, friends! I have a special surprise that I have been keeping a secret, and I am so, so, so excited to finally be able to share it with you! Thanks to this blog, I’ve done some really cool things over the years and, guys, this opportunity is definitely at the top of the list. I designed to a pair of leggings with Four Athletics!!! Woohoo! Additional details coming soon, but I wanted to give you guys a…

Tuesday in a nutshell: Orangetheory, shrimp tacos, and conjunctivitis! Quinn slept until nearly 7:00 AM, which was awesome, but also meant that our usual morning was cut short a bit. Usually, we lounge around the house, drink iced coffee/milk, and take our time getting ready, but we had places to go and people to see! 🙂 On the agenda: Orangetheory! Mal and I love taking classes together, but we don’t get to go all that often…

Hi, guys! Happy Monday! How was your weekend? I shared a little recap of Friday night with Quinn and then Saturday was kind of a blur. We did our usual “gym day” followed by coffee and donuts and then spent the rest of the afternoon and evening hanging out at home – nothing too exciting to report. We woke up on Sunday without any plans, but the day ended up shaping up! Here’s a little…

Hi, friends! I’m publishing the next edition of What I’m Loving Lately a little early this week because I haven’t shared one in a few weeks now. This one is quite the round-up of favorite products and links. I hope you enjoy it! What the Heck Should I Eat –  I just recently started this book, and I’m loving it so much! Dr. Hyman explains each food group in detail – the research, why it’s confusing, and…

Hi, guys! Happy FRIDAY to you! I’m pumped that the weekend is just about here. We actually don’t have a ton of plans, but I’m looking forward to detaching from my laptop for a few days. I feel like I’ve had a lot of computer time this week. Although, I was able to escape for a facial yesterday afternoon, which was quite amazing. It was a nice way to break up the day, and I…

This post is sponsored by one of my favorite brands: Stitch Fix! As always, thank you for supporting CNC and awesome companies that I have the opportunity to partner with. Hi, guys! You know I’m a huge fan of Stitch Fix – basically, since it started nearly 7 years ago. I hate shopping and don’t know how to dress myself, and Stitch Fix solves both of those problems, so I love getting my ‘Fix’ delivered…

This post is sponsored by LOLA. Warning: Once you read this blog post, you cannot unread it. At a girls’ night not too long ago, the topic of tampons came up. I know, it was a little random, but both the wine and laughter were flowing, and I think it was related to doing Double-Unders at the gym and then who knows how the conversation ended up where it did. #girlsnight Anyway, one of my…

Back in August, I started using a few new products from Beautycounter. At that point, I was pretty frustrated with my skin. Between wacky hormones and summer sun exposure, it was not looking great. Now that I’m a consultant, I wanted to see what kind of results I would have using Beautycounter’s products, so I took a few “before” photos on my iPhone with very little intention of ever sharing them on the internet. I…

Thanksgiving is over, which means it is officially the holiday season! Time to start seriously considering what to gift your friends and family, and this can be a struggle for many. You want to give something unique, but useful; something exciting but practical. Something that really shows that you care (without breaking the bank). Be sure to read on for Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals! 🙂 This is why I’m so excited about Beautycounter’s…

At 37 years old, I’ve come to accept that I ain’t no spring chicken, and I’m not getting any younger. If anything, this past summer, I realized it was time to step it up with my skincare routine. Holy sun damage! Related: Have you read this blog post yet? I love trying new beauty products, but I hate wasting my money on ones that don’t work. Before I discovered how many chemical sensitivities I had…

Is there anything better in life than a pair of good black leggings? You know, the kind you say that are for working out, but they’re also for sitting on your couch in a hoodie and fuzzy socks. (You know you do it too!) Every time I go shopping for workout clothes, I tell myself not to buy another pair of black workout leggings. And just about every time I go shopping for workout clothes……
