Fall Trending: A Shopping Guide

Image
Fall shopping can be intimidating sometimes.  Maybe you regularly go fall shopping like me to get a few new key items to have in your closet or maybe you stopped fall shopping when "back to school shopping" was no longer a thing for you to do. Either way, I think it's nice to refresh your closet every 6 months when the weather starts to dramatically transition.
Before swapping out my clothes for each season I try to go through the closet and what I had in storage to decide if I really want to wear it again for the season at hand.  When sorting through my clothes I usually do 1 of 3 things: Donate it, sell it or trash it.  I know you feel bad throwing away those bras or undies you've had for 10 years but trust me Goodwill does not want it either! 
In the last few months I've thrown away underwear, bras, jeans with giant holes and a shirt or two that is not ready or able to be worn be someone else.  Since joining Poshmark, I've made a few sales with the "…

Back to Basics - Renewing Your Practice

Hello all! It's been a minute! Life has been steering me in all sorts of directions and unfortunately has left me with less time to write and keep the blog moving right along.

In addition to life steering me away from my writing, I have also been struggling over the last couple of months (okay, year) keeping yoga in my weekly practice.  Since I started running consistently over the past year I've really neglected my yoga practice which has left me feeling a little lost when it comes to exercise.  Running is my cardio and I do cross train at the gym, but with all this stress I should really be focused on bringing the yin back into my schedule.



Last night I walked from my house to Riverfront Promenade to practice a little.  I'm still slowly recovering from a small injury in my knee so I was mindful to my body when doing poses I hadn't done since I went to the muscle therapist.

🎃 Fall Festivities 🌽

It's finally to starting to feel like fall here in New Jersey, so my friends and I decided to go out to the corn maze at Stony Hill Farms in Chester, NJ. 🌽



Several of them went the year before and took about 2 hours to escape the maze! I wasn't sure how long it was going to take us, but we definitely had fun along the way!

We first started out taking only right turns thru the maze and it seemed to get us pretty far...pretty far until we ended up at the entrance to the maze again! I wouldn't say we gave up, but we gave in and really used the map to get us out of there!




Our entry price also included a hay ride, so my friend and I took a ride down to the pumpkin patch in search for the perfect pumpkins! 🎃
