Sasha Finds: The EMPWR Coat

I wish it didn’t take the holidays to motivate us all to be better human beings, but it’s better than nothing. So while we are all snuggled up in our cozy PJs, eating an endless supply of food from our fridge, and doing something as inane as mulling over which snapchat filter you should use, let’s think about all the people that will be sleeping in the streets during the coldest time of the year. Full Article

This is a festive dress. I understand why someone would want to wear it this time of year. And I think the hairstyle choice for it is perfect. The dress itself, however, is kind of a disappointment, mostly because of the material. I like the billowy design, I like the collar wrapped around the neck. Full Article

Smutty Fitness: Pilates moves

Hayley Posted by Hayley at December 9, 2016 16:19:23 December 9, 2016 16:19:23

If you didn’t know this about me already, I am IN LOVE with my Pilates practice. Although I will never look like a graceful dancer, the movements of Pilates have been so great for all of my sports and it keeps my body pretty pain free. I understand that Pilates is not only expensive but can be intimidating for us “less flexible” types. Full Article

Duana Names: One Plus One Equals Three?

Duana Posted by Duana at December 8, 2016 21:48:17 December 8, 2016 21:48:17

Hello Duana, When we were first talking about having kids I was so excited to pick names! I thought it would be the best part about being pregnant, but it’s turned out to be hard and exhausting in reality. My husband and I are expecting our second baby [in mid-December]. We don't know the sex. Full Article

Hi Duana, I swear at one point I had a mental list of beloved names but now that we’re expecting (after over 7 years of trying!) I can’t seem to remember any of them! She’s expected to arrive in January and we’re stuck for names. My last name and to-be-baby’s middle name is three syllables, Portuguese and ending in a hard “o”. Full Article

Sasha Finds: Rains

One of my first posts for this site was about the NUBRELLA.  Remember? Basically it was a hands-free spherical shield thingy that protects you from the rain.  Okay fine, in retrospect maybe it was a tad aggressive in its design; and while I wish it caught on, no one bit. Full Article

It would bother me if someone called it a pregnancy outfit. Like as if to say that she wouldn’t wear it if she wasn’t pregnant. I’m not pregnant and I would wear it, no problem. I love the jacket. I love the rips at the shoulder. And the loose fit of this dress, and even the mulleting in the skirt. Full Article

Smutty Fitness: Holiday Dos and Don’ts

Hayley Posted by Hayley at December 1, 2016 19:21:42 December 1, 2016 19:21:42

It’s that time again. The holiday season. The time when we eat and drink WAY too much. The time where tumbleweeds blow through gyms. And every year, one month following today, we are either in a panic trying to undo all that we did over the last 30 days or we have decided that this is the year we finally get ourselves fit. Full Article
