3 Health Podcasts You Should Be Listening To

Did you know that I don’t even store music on my iPhone anymore? Nope, not a track. I had a bunch of playlists on there last year, but I decided they were taking up way too much room and that I really never listened to them. I love music, but the type of media that truly has my heart is PODCASTS. If you’ve been reading for a while, then you know I am a podcast connoisseur. Seriously, if you ever need recommendations, hit me up!

Pin It Party #3

[Enter my Thunderbird Energetica giveaway HERE! Two people will win!]

Popping in on a Thursday to join my second party of the week!

It’s been a while since the last Pin It Party, so I’ll refresh your memory about what it’s all about…

  • Round up 5 blog posts you’ve written that you would like to see on Pinterest.
  • Make sure there is a nice, pinable image or photo included in each post.
  • Write a short post featuring the posts you chose- ie, put 5 nice images & links to the posts all in one place, along with a short description of each post.
  • On Thursday, publish your post, then visit The Bean and add your post to the linkup!

The only rule is that if you link up, you should visit some of the other linkups and pin at least 3 images!

Top 5 Trader Joe’s Staples [+Quick Spelt Crumpets]

Ever since Trader Joe’s opened up a location in my city, I’ve become a total TJ’s convert. Sure, I loved their products before, but I was only ever able to get them a few times a year if I went to a city that had a store. I’d get things like dried mango, triple fruit spread, and peanut butter….basically only things that can’t spoil. Fun…but not as fun as being able to buy all the cool fresh, frozen, and perishable products!

Five Fitness and Health YouTube Channels

Back to the real world, friends! The holidays are almost through, can you believe it? It seems like they came and went so quickly and now we’re already moving on to 2015!


Recently I’ve really gotten into watching YouTube videos! I’ve never been that into YouTube aside from the occasional viral video viewing, but now that some of my favorite bloggers and social media celebs have started their own channels, I’ve really enjoyed getting to know the people behind the screens. I mostly watch health and fitness channels at this point but I am always looking to expand my subscriptions and see what else is out there. Today I thought I’d share some of my favorite channels as of late.
