The Blue Lagoon. The MUST stop in Iceland.

When planning our trip to Iceland I KNEW that somehow we would need to fit in a stop to this geothermal spa. We considered making the stop at the Blue Lagoon as soon as we got off our flights to Iceland, as the airport is near, and it would be a nice way to begin a trip— but a friend that had been before had suggested maybe finishing our time in Iceland with our stop at this famous spa and Icelandic Landmark. So that’s exactly what we did, it was perfect!

After several days of driving and seeing the breathtaking sites of this magical country, Taylor and I enjoyed a relaxing night at The Blue Lagoon before our next flights and adventures. We soaked in the hot spa water, floated around sipping on wine, enjoyed an unbelievable dinner (completely gluten free for me), covered …

I had always dreamt of exploring the posh and historic streets of London. And when I say Always, I mean that this was something that I had wanted to do since the day I learned about Princess Diana and the two young princes that I was sure were awaiting my arrival to London just as much as I was excited to get there! 😉 (I had a vivid imagination growing up… let’s be honest, it’s still pretty active.)

When my sweet boyfriend and I began planning our trip to Iceland we realized London would be our gateway stop to our travels that would follow our Iceland trip. This brought a huge smile to my face, realizing I was finally going to get to explore a city that I had forever been fascinated by. And what made this even better is when we …

My Day to Night Pamper Tricks

My lifestyle is all about living clean. My Sweet & Free Lifestyle isn’t just about feeling your best on the inside, but feeling clean on the outside is just as important to me. I’m much happier if I can feel my best on the daily.

My days are very full, but not with just one thing. On any given day you’ll find me running, then off to the store, and then off to see clients, then to barre class, and often a night out with my girls or a special date night with my “mega babe” boyfriend. Which naturally can leave me feeling… well, less than fresh. (I’m talking sticky, hair frizzy, and stinky too!)

I thought it would be fun to share with you my Day To Night Pamper Tricks! I’ve made it super easy for you with my Top 3 tried and true go-to’s when it comes to feeling my best! I carry all of these …

Iceland: Horseback Riding & Gluten Free Picnics on Black Sand Beaches

  The Black Sand Beaches of Vik, Iceland

Our first day in Iceland was full (read about our first day HERE), but we weren’t about to miss a beat for our second day exploring this beautiful and mystical country. I could say that this day was my favorite, but really, I’ll say that about each day. Iceland is just magical, full of adventure, romantic, and absolutely picturesque.

Day 2 we woke up and hit the road to the black sand beaches of Vik. Day 2 will take a couple posts to share, because yet again, we packed the day full, and kept going into the middle of the night. The first highlight of the day was horseback riding on these black sand beaches, this was something that both Taylor and I had said was something that we wanted to make sure we would do while visiting Vik.

Must Have Travel Snacks

One of the most frequent questions that I’m asked is about how to eat healthy (or even for me, gluten free) while traveling! It’s a great question as it seems daunting for many to be able to stick to eating for their personal dietary needs or even attempting to stick to their healthy eating practices while traveling, but after several trips full of trial and error (hunger pains to “gluten poisoning” tummy aches), I think I have found some must have travel snacks for domestic and international travel.

My Secret Love Affair

Favorites / Healthy Living / Miscellaneous / Personal

This secret love affair of mine turned my world upside down in the best way…

I was lost, I had no clue who I was, and I was searching for my true identity. Now… I do have a few love affairs going on, so I should probably square away which one I’m talking about today. Yes, I do have an incredibly good thing going with my super dreamy husband, but I’m re-winding back to a few years ago when I finally found my greatest passion and calling in my life.

From the day I left my little town of Newberg, Oregon all I knew of myself was that I was a dancer. I set out for college in California to chase my dreams of dancing professionally, and that was my identity. I had poured my high school years into dance, followed by my college years as I continued to chase my professional dance dreams, which they did come …

So it’s getting close to my birthday!! I love celebrating and I will never deny that I’m turning one year older… but then again, I will be one year older! Haha. But age is really just a number, right? (you should all be nodding your heads yes, thank you.) Truth is, as the number of my age has been going up, I am honestly feeling younger. Healthier, more energetic, balanced, and a lot more confident in my own skin, which allows me to love life so much more!  This all has to do with lifestyle. So here’s a little lifestyle upgrade for all of you…

Naturally with age comes the question… what will change? What will go south? And sure, things may change as time goes on, but for right now I feel like I’m thriving!

One thing that I especially want to be …

My Ode to The Bachelor

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord,

“Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Six years ago a very broken girl showed up in Los Angeles for a very unknown adventure ahead. Broken, but hopeful. She had no clue what was in store, and would have never imagined what would actually take place and how it would change her heart, soul, and her life all together. The thought that this adventure could possibly help her put the broken pieces back together, would have never crossed her mind, but that’s exactly what happened.

Six years ago that broken girl was me. My world as I had known it had crumbled all around me. My heart was broken into fragile little pieces, and I had no clue what could possibly be ahead. There was fear in not knowing how the healing process would go, and a fear …

“Give Thanks with a Grateful Heart”

There are so many blessings in my life to be grateful for, and I decided to write down to share a few of mine with all of you. Maybe take a minute for yourself to make your own list. Sitting down to do this was such a refreshing game changer in the midst of a crazy day. I was also surprised by a few of the things that popped into my mind as I was writing… you’ll see. 😉 It’s become a practice of mine to count my blessings, thanks to my mom, especially when certain moments in life are feeling so out of my hands, it’s a good time to remember what is in place to be thankful for. Here I go…
