Whether it be changes within work, relationships, lifestyle, friendships – absolutely anything – you will never see the changes you want manifest if you are not willing to make one yourself. Progress is impossible without change.

Dipping my toes into photgraphy is one of the most fulfilling things I have done in my spare time. I am learning on my own by reading, observing and listening to advice.
I am figuring out the preset game and the best editing tools out there. Right now I am using Light Room by Adobe Photoshop. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I am using our old faithful Canon EOS 20D. It takes amazing photographs and is quite easy to use. Someday I hopefully will be able to upgrade to a more recent model.
Looking forward to documenting all the beauty around by slowing down life a bit. Photographs or it never happened!

It has been roughly a year since I have been on my mat and let me just say it is good to be back. The past year I have been dealing with an annoying cyst in my foot that has made it difficult to practice, but now with a second dose of cortisone in my foot, I am able to practice again without pain or discomfort.
This past Saturday was my first morning back and I totally slayed my practice. I was stronger than I thought I was going to be, my mind was calmer than it has been and felt all around peaceful. I felt so amazing when I left my mat I decided to take a Pilates/Barre class on Sunday and slayed it again. There is a saying “When you own your breath, nobody can steal your peace.” This is completely how I felt during and after my practice’s this past weekend.
The Center for Vital Living
My favorite yoga to practice is Heated Vinyasa. It is a studio room heated around 78-95 degrees. You typically expect a specific sequence of poses that smoothly flow together. You may also hear the terms Ashtanga, Baptiste Yoga, Jivamukti, Power Yoga and Prana Flow that are also considered vinyasa yoga.
I encourage anyone that has not practiced yoga or has been off their mat for a period of time to find the time to experience or reconnect with their mat. I am most thankful I did.
Until next time -Namaste

I thought I would share a few of my favorite beauty products that I am addicted to. These products give me the Fresh-Dewy look this girl loves.
I always begin with a clean slate which is my First Aid Beauty Cleanser, First Aid Beauty Moisturizer and Must Dew by Limelight. Once I have step one complete I am ready for my day-look application.
Step 1: Tarte Shape Tape, 2 in 1 full covereage concealer. Sculpt and highlight as you mask any imperfections. It is hydrating, long wearing and delivers a radiant coverage.
(I apply with a concealer sponge)
Step 2: Tarte BB Cream, Oil -free, vegan tinited moisturizer that offers light-medium coverage. I love that it diffuses the look of fine lines and wrinkles. It has an Amazonian clay-powered formula with chamomile and vitamins A, C, and E to nourish your complexion. (I apply with a blender sponge)
Step 3: MAC Studio Fix Powder, A one-step powder/foudation that gives skin a smooth, flawless finish. It is long-wearing and adds a velvety texture that allows your skin to breathe. (I lightly dust over my face with my Limelight Professional Vegan All Over Powder Brush)
Step 4: Limelight Perfect Bronzer, This bronzer I use below my cheek bones to give a light sun-kissed illusion. It is ideal for all skin tones to enhance your natural glow.
(I apply my bronzer with my tapered powder brush by Limelight)
Step 5: Urban Decay Perversion Mascara, This ultra creamy, lengthening and volumizing mascara is amazing. It glides on easily and creates sexy lashes instantly.
(I apply as directed for stand-out lashes)
Step 6: MAC Prep+Prime fix +, Finish your look with this lightweight mist of water packed with vitamins and minerals. It is hydrating, sets and prolongs the wear of makeup. (Spray and get on with your bad self!)
As always, thank you all for following my blog!
