Explore Your Own Backyard: Fancy Fitness & Exotic Eats

Happy Weekend everyone! Even though it’s a working weekend for me (they all are!) I am trying to enjoy it as much as I can since it’s my second last before school starts! Nothing to big planned. Just enjoying the nice weather and the semi-freedom I have before school and my internship get into full swing! But that doesn’t mean I don’t have some adventures to share! It’s time for another round of Explore Your Own Backyard!

Jade Yoga Mat Review

[Have you entered my Thunderbird Energetica/Gather bar giveaway!? It runs until Saturday so enter for your chance to win!]

You all know, I LOVE MARSHAL’S. So many good deals on stuff that would otherwise be way overpriced. But despite my love for their deep discounts, there are some things that just shouldn’t be purchased there. Case in point….YOGA MATS.
