Hi everyone! I’m super excited (and nervous!) to announce my new website, Shop Your Element.
When I first started my fitness journey, I became obsessed with so many different types of movement. At first it was cycling, then it was boxing, and then yoga, and running, and literally everything else! I started to notice a couple things really quickly: first of all, it was nice having cute workout clothes 🙂 and second of all, not all activewear is equal. I don’t mean the price point. I mean how the activewear felt for each form of movement. Certain leggings had no compression and were a …
I absolutely love meal prepping. If you’re new to it, it may seem a bit overwhelming and like a lot of cooking but with just a little bit of planning at the beginning of the week, you will be able to set yourself up for success.

Oatmeal is always such an easy go-to for me. It takes around 5 minutes and there’s very little clean-up. I’m all about simplicity in the mornings 🙂 And even though it’s the summer time now and LA is currently going through a heatwave, there is something about a warm, creamy bowl of oatmeal that really excites me in the morning 😀 When it’s just plain oatmeal, it can be a bit bland for me but that’s why I love experimenting with different add-ons.
