This past Wednesday I was invited to a twilight yoga session at The Chase Park Plaza. The event was for local St. Louis influencers (which means I got to see Katie and Lindsay!) as away to promote the fitness and wellness offerings at The Chase. The Chase Park Plaza is a historic hotel and residence in the Central West End that includes restaurants, a movie theatre, special event space, bars, a pool deck and more! It is an incredible space with a cool history featuring tons of . . .
Heyyyy, friends! Happy Saturday! My day started perfectly with the sweetest puppy cuddles. In case you don't follow me on social media, I am obsessed with my roommate's dog, Gus. He is the cutest -- barely ever barks, is a great fetch player, and and gives nearly human-like hugs. I was up a little earlier than I expected to be, so I decided to join a yoga teacher training friend for yoga at the park! My knee is feeling a little bit better, and stretching helps a ton, so I figured I'd . . .
Hey everyone! Today was all about getting 'ish done. Phone calls, errands, last minute house cleaning stuff, and of course some research work. Days like that feel SO good - so many things checked off the list. I took some pictures now that the new house is a little more put together. It's not perfect -- things still need to be hung, a few changes hopefully to be made when some income allows -- but I am so in love with it. I still can't believe we found a place that had everything on our . . .
Under the crushing amount of debt that we are, my classmates and I are always looking for discounts and freebies. This is where social media comes in -- FOLLOW LOCAL BUSINESSES! This is how you find out about cool events and specials!! I saw an post on Facebook for a FREE WEEK of classes at a local fitness studio, Dragonfly Fitness. I immediately shared it with my girlfriends, and next thing I know we've all got workout classes planned together! LOVE the studio motto:) I had no idea . . .
This first week back at school has been so fun! Breaks are almost sad because everyone is gone -- I love my friends and classmates and have so much fun with them, even if means being in classes and studying a lot too:) I'm glad everyone is back! Wednesday night I tried a new restaurant - Lulu's Local Eatery. It's all vegan which brings me back to my vegetarian days when I would have been all over this place. Even though I eat everything now, I still love trying creative foods and think vegan . . .
I have been so pleasantly surprised by the St. Louis yoga scene since moving back. A few years ago there were just a few studios to check out, but now there are a ton more (including my beloved Baptiste style Metro!) -- plus now we have YogaBuzz! Yoga Buzz is a one-year-old St. Louis nonprofit created by an adorable lady named Elle. They put on events all over the city (Anheuser-Busch Brewery, Fox Theater, the Planetarium, a taco restaurant...!) and the idea is to make yoga a fun event . . .
This Thursday is the 5th Annual Missouri Eating Disorder Advocacy Day. This event was rescheduled because of snow last month (ironic), but it's s upposed to be clear by Thursday. I have been in contact with the organizer, and here's what she said we'd be doing: Meet at 10am in the First Floor Rotunda to begin Lobby training. Pick up a training packet,learn the details, what we'll be doing, talking points etc. Go in GROUPS to your respective legislator's office to discuss the . . .
