Get Downward Reebok Tank

Getting Downward And Onward With Yoga

Have you ever thought “if only I had better _____, I would totally _____ everyday”? That was my typical excuse for putting off my yoga practice. I had an old crummy mat, classes that never worked with my schedule, and beyond old t-shirts and leggings as yoga clothes. Obviously,  yoga focuses much more on the spiritual than the material, but I hadn’t quite reached that level yet. I needed to feel comfortable and the tattered mat and clothes had to go. I searched long and hard for the best yoga mat, and ended up with the Manduka PROlite in Thyme. To solve class conflicts, I decided to try different classes of yoga and invested in The Ultimate Yogi, a 108 day program by Travis Eliot. I’m really excited to start the journey since I’ve heard great things about it! The program is said to be the “yoga version” of PX90.

Isabel Marant Sumac Jacket

Friday Five

1. Isabel Marant Sumac I’ve found my perfect spring jacket! Initially I was a little bit hesitant about the style, but the fit is beautiful. I ordered a size up as recommended by others and it’s perfect – still fitted but loose enough to layer over a light sweater. The jacket is also available in red and blue, but I went with the “safer” option of black to match more of my wardrobe. If you’re interested in the black, I recommend calling the SOHO boutique (212-219-2284) as that’s the only place I found it still available. I think I’m a little in love with this print? Paired here with the Salome skirt in red. 2. Tibetan Shawl So warm, so soft, so cozy…ahhh. There’s a shop in Laguna Beach called Tibet Handicrafts that sells very unique merchandise from Tibet, Nepal, India, and Himilaya. My mom and I were there visiting the owner, and I snatched up this incredibly soft shawl made of yak wool. I have to say it’s the softest and warmest shawl/scarf I own. 3. …

Sonny Angel Kewpie Figures

The Friday Five

Happy Friday everyone! Starting today, I’ll be posting five things or events that I appreciate during the week, every Friday. It’s always nice to end the week on a positive note, don’t you think? :) So here we go… #1. Sonny Angel Kewpie Figures I’ve been eyeing these cuties for a long time! They’re mostly sold in blindboxes or sets (which can get super pricey), but I managed to find a site that opens and sells them separately. Score! If any of you are interested, you can find them at Sausalito Ferry, they’ve got some amazing Japanese imports. #2. Rilakkuma  My newest obsession as of late: Rilakkuma. Need I say more? ;) I went a little crazy on the stationary this time. Happy stationary = happy work time…maybe? #3. iPhone 5 I finally got my hands on it, and I couldn’t be happier.  It’s light, fast, and best of all, I can take panoramic pictures! Watch out for those soon. ^^ #4. Free People 2012 Holiday Stockings How amazing are these stockings?! The details are absolutely …
