WIA[and tried]W

Today is a 2 for 1 special on the blog! Not only is it WIAW, but I also have a another fun installment of Explore Your Own Backyard! This summer has been the summer of trying new things in my city and last week was no different!


On Friday I set out for a short drive to visit my area’s only Pure Barre location! I have never taken any sort of barre class before so I as pretty excited to try out this new type of workout.

No matter how alluring their pretty colors, cool designs, and 15 dollar price tags are. When it comes to getting good quality equipment for a sweaty yoga practice, Marshal’s simply doesn’t cut it. Now that I’ve been practicing yoga daily, I learned that lesson the hard way. My Marshal’s mat pretty much turned into a slip and slide during my practice. IMG_6281
