I’ve recently starting going to yoga on a regular basis (I’ve been before, but it was always randomly and not consistently) and I must say, I really love it. There are definite physical benefits (almost able to do a split, something I haven’t been able to do since i was 17!), but I love the other benefits as well. I always leave the class feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. The message at the end of yesterdays class was “happiness is a choice,” which I happen to be a big believer of. It’s so easy to forget in the midst of our daily lives, stresses, work, school, family..etc, but the the little reminders that it really is up to us, always help put things into perspective. Just wanted to share my ramblings of the day.



  • KaNini's

    This is so so soooo freakin' amazing! Love that blazer, love everything that's pink! 🙂

  • Andi

    Love everything, as usual! That hot pink is just gorgeous on you.
    I just got back into yoga too and I feel the same way, it's addicting. So glad I can go regularly now that the kids are old enough to leave for a while.

  • EllysMakeupbag

    I love yoga too, at first i hated it but somehow i ended up liking it way more than pilates! Love the outfit.

  • Anna Jane

    i definitely need to get back into yoga…i feel like it centers me.

    and about that jacket…it's so great! might need to pick one up after mexico 🙂

  • Queen.OnSet

    I am doing Pilates now but I def still want to try yoga out to see what the difference is.

    love the colour of your blazer 🙂

  • Collections

    Love this outfit. You look fabulous! Honestly I'm horrible at yoga (if that's even possible). I used to take it in college for my gym requirement and my teacher always used to call me up to the front to show people what not to do. It was actually quite funny. I wish I were better at it because I do enjoy it/ it is calming!

    Fashionable Collections

  • The Fancy Teacup

    You look so perfect and demure in the bubble gum pink! And love how you paired your lip color as well. Glad you found an activity to bring more contentment into your life. Looking beautiful, hun!
