Love List

1. When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up? Are you doing that? If not, you’d probably enjoy this little Buzzfeed quiz as much as I did. I was apparently supposed to be an astronaut…not sure about that one but I still enjoyed it.  

2. I mentioned Neila Rey in this week’s Weekly Weigh In. I’ve been doing two of the HIIT workouts this week and boy…let’s just say I’ve been red faced and sweating a lot. Nice visual, huh? Sorry. Anyway, I’m a little obsessed with the site and am thinking of doing the 30 day HIIT challenge. You can check it out here

3. I was reading a little about the controversy over Subway’s bread. If you haven’t heard, it contains azodicarbonamide (that’s a mouthful). It is the same chemical used in yoga mats, shoe soles and other rubbery objects. (Ewww, right?) Yeah. Something tells me most of us would be hugely surprised if we knew more about all of the chemicals in our food. Here’s to eating chemical free foods as much as possible. This site can help you learn more. 

4. I’m not a girly girl…at least in most areas of my life. That said, I can appreciate the pretty in delicate, girly clothing. When I saw this top, it immediately jumped onto my wish list. It’s different enough to have an edge despite being suuuuuper feminine.  

5. Do you pass time when bored or while thinking by doodling? Check out what your doodles say about you

6.  This photo made me want to book a trip. Can you imagine having breakfast in the clouds? Check out UnakiTerrace here. 

7. Skin Deep is a cosmetic database that rates products for how harmful they are. It doesn’t mean you should throw out everything you own and run for the Tom’s of Maine and Burt’s Bees (although both are great product lines). Just arm yourself with knowledge about what you’re putting on your body. 

8. When I tore my Achilles tendon a few years back, I had to stop wearing heels until I was out of physical therapy. After months in flats, heels never felt the same. To this day I still feel a little wobbly in anything over 3 inches unless it has a thicker heel or wedge. Imagine my delight when checking out Spring 2014 shoe trendsMid sized heels are back! Yippie! 

9. I’ve been doing a lot of yoga lately. My yogi focuses on vinyasa flow yoga. Get into it. Here are the basic poses
