I did a little poll on my Instagram this week about what kind of posts yall want to see and several people wanted to know more about pregnancy and postpartum. I’ve had this idea in the back of my mind for a little while now, because I have LOTS of pregnant friends right now who have asked advice on various things.Read More
Anyone else do some shopping this weekend besides me?! Haha but really, I did have some fun picking things out for both me and baby girl that I'll share soon! For now though I wanted to tell yall about some adorable activewear that is still available in most colors and sizes. Things from the NSale are selling out FAST and Nordstrom has come out saying that not everything will continue to be restocked, so time is ticking to grab anything you see and love. I know I'm not wasting any time when I see something in my size…Read More
It's Monday! You know what that means... a new gift guide is ready for you! There are just TWO more gift guide Mondays after today and I'm particularly excited about this one. As a fitness instructor (and tbh because I'm a millennial) I am all to familiar with living in athleisure... I love a good fitness themed gift, whether it be leggings, a great sweater or new gym bag!Read More
Happy Friday, friends! I'm super excited to share with y'all a new skincare line I've been using, FRÉ Skincare! For anyone new around here, in addition to blogging I'm also a Pure Barre instructor, meaning I spend many days working out and/or teaching fitness classes... AKA I sweat a lot! While sweating is great to flush the body of impurities, not properly cleansing can be detrimental to your skin by clogging your pores and causing premature aging (GASP!) I'm no expert but I do care about taking care of my skin, my face especially, so the FRÉ Skincare line was immediately very enticing to me...Read More
Hey friends! We're officially home from our amazing trip to Hawaii and still feeling a little sad about it haha! But good news, it's Friday! I'll be sharing more about our trip soon but until then, I thought a little Fitness Friday post might be fun!
Music is super important to me and I seriously cannot workout without good tunes! Anyone else with me? Spotify seems like the easiest way to share music with yall, so all you need to do is search for my Spotify username, which is alexmariejordan (creative, huh?) ;) To search for a user, find the magnifying glass at the top, click and type in the username! Easy peasy! I have a few playlists there, which you're of course to check out, but the one I'm talking about today is called "workout".Read More
The trendiness of activewear isn't novel these days, as many of us (myself included) often find ourselves living in our beloved yoga pants and wearing athletic clothing out in public (gasp!) The fashion world even came up with a new term for wearing such items in places OUTSIDE the gym... athleisure.
We Millennials are far too familiar with this term and way of dressing! While I do actually workout 5-6 days a week, I still find myself lounging around the house or running errands in yoga pants and sports bras on a regular basis.Read More
It's crazy to think that summer is basically over and most kids are already back in school! Where did the time go!? I am one of those girls who is always somewhat eager for summer to end so we can get right to fall (my favorite season!) I don't know what the weather is like where y'all live but here in St. Louis it is usually SO hot and humid during July/August that by the time September rolls around, we are all praising temperatures below 80 degrees!
Another thing I love about fall is the fashion! I am a boots with dresses and oversized sweaters kind of girl and get SO excited when the weather is cool enough to switch out my wardrobe. Until then, I've been browsing some last minute summer picks that are all on sale (!!!) but would be perfect transitional pieces for moving into fall.Read More
For those of you who don't know, I'm a Pure Barre instructor and therefore, I love trying all sorts of new fitness classes and techniques! I was recently contacted by CycleBar to come try out a class and immediately jumped at the opportunity!
CycleBar is a premium indoor cycling experience that uses a mix of lights and music to drive you through a super intense class led by your CycleStar instructor. The facilities are super clean and bright and offer some really nice amenities like free water bottles and snacks, lockers, showers, and complimentary shoes. I was SO impressed by how nice the entire studio was and all the goodies that were available to riders.Read More
Maybe it's just me, but I'm always super curious to hear about anything related to health and fitness. I love reading what others have to say about their nutrition and workout routines, so I thought it'd be fun to share what I keep in my gym bag on a regular basis.Read More
