• Yoga Gear Refresh

    After four weeks of weight training and a full week in Nantucket my body needs a break! I dialed up a practice yesterday morning with one of my favorite apps, Yoga Glo (Beachbody has some awesome streaming practices too!), and it was glorious! It reminded me just how much I need balance in my workouts. I tend to get focused and concentrate on one program but really I need weights, cardio, AND yoga to feel my best. I also realized I REALLY need to get some new yoga duds. I am constantly in workout gear, so obviously I like it to be polished enough to wear out for errands… Which…

  • My July Uniform: What I am wearing on repeat…

    How is already midway through July? Time is flying! I have been quite quiet as we’ve been spending lots of time with family and to be honest I have been away from my computer, phone and social media; it has been fantastic! I love that aspect of summer! I truly unplug. I have noticed in this lazy days of summer that I have a bit of a uniform, pieces that I just continuously grab to wear. They are all cool, comfortable and easy to throw on and still looked put together. Perfect for these hot summer days! Click on the link in description to check them out!     Roberta…

  • Point Sur X J. Crew

    My apologies for being behind on blog posts. While I am working out this SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth… lovely. I will do a post on it in the future)  with Low FODMAPS diet situation, my meals have been boring, redundant and not always that colorful… I have not had any inspirations for new recipes as of late. That said, I am actually excited to have been diagnosed with SIBO (yesterday!) so I can move on with treatment and get back to cooking! The other thing that has been all consuming, although exciting and fun, is our house renovation. I  have spent so much time looking at tile, lighting, paint…

  • Secret Source: J. Crew Factory

    Summer clothes… they get so grungy by Labor Day am I right? I do not like to invest heavily in summer pieces unless it is a dress for an event. I would rather buy less expensive items that only last a season or two. Not to mention summer is the best time to try out new trends, new colors & new styles, so why break the bank. I have been getting my fun summer upgrades from J. Crew Factory for years (I probably do have a few shorts from the first trip there!). Everything is always on sale and you are guaranteed to get cute style for less. They are…

  • My Current Beauty Favorite
