REAL TALK TUESDAY : Anxiety

REAL TALK TUESDAY :  Anxiety

I’m going to be starting #realtalktuesday on the blog. A place where we can talk about real issues and connect more. I love sharing beauty, health and wellness tips with you guys. You know this by now. The thing is, being healthy isn’t just about a healthy body and what you eat. It really all starts with your mental state. Mental health is something that more and more people are talking openly about and I think that is really important. So often we experience things and feel as though we are alone and that nobody else has to deal with these things but that couldn’t be further from the truth.

THERE'S JUST SOMETHING ABOUT NATURE...

That does it for me. The minute I step onto grass, surrounded by trees with preferably a lake nearby, I am instantly recharged. The smells in the air, the sun on my face (covered in sunscreen of course!) The sound of birds chirping (doves cooing) and the wind rustling through the leaves. Theres nothing like it for me. When I was a kid, I spent my summers in the country at a sleep away summer camp. Those were the best memories of my childhood. It was there that I discovered my love for acting by being in the plays and it was there where I discovered how important being outside in nature was for me. We played sports all summer long and spent the entire summer outdoors in nature. From volleyball to tennis to basketball, baseball and soccer. We did every water activity you can possibly do on a lake from waterskiing to sailing, wind surfing and canoeing. These were the happiest years of my childhood. They were when I was most at peace. Maybe that's why when I step out into a location like this one here, I am filled with so much gratitude, peace and just happy feelings.  What type of locations make you feel happy? Happy Friday loves!

HOW TO LOOK LIKE YOU SPENT A WEEK ON A BEACH!

HOW TO LOOK LIKE YOU SPENT A WEEK ON A BEACH!

Let's face it, sometimes we want to look like we just got back from St. Tropez (or maybe we actually did, but are being smart and protecting ourselves from too much exposure to those harmful uv rays!) The problems I have run into with self tanners are that they are either too streaky, too orange, they smell too strong or they stain your clothes.

CLIFF JUMPING! How my husband saved a life... (or I like to think so)

CLIFF JUMPING! How my husband saved a life... (or I like to think so)

With my husband having grown up in Hawaii, he's basically a fish. He loves the water and when we come here we get to hit all the local spots tourists don't really know about. One of these locations is this one right here (I can't tell you because then it won't be a secret spot! You will just have to come to Hawaii with us sometime)

BEACH ESSENTIALS!

BEACH ESSENTIALS!

As most of you know, we are currently vacationing in Hawaii! It is so nice to be back here. The last time we were here was for our wedding two years ago so it's almost like a second honeymoon! Obviously we are spending a lot of time at the beach which means tons and tons of sunscreen. If you missed my video on why I am so obsessed with sunscreen I will post it below.
