Happy Friday, loves — how’d you guys hold up this week? The week after Thanksgiving can sometimes feel extra long, but this year it didn’t seem too bad. This year we’re trying to be a little more conscious of our holiday habits — actively trying to keep our nutrition and exercise in check, and budgeting ourselves so we don’t overspend. It can be a challenge at times, but it seems to be helping, because we’re feeling good! Are you guys doing anything differently this year to feel a little more balanced? Hope you guys have a great weekend — see you on Monday!

Festival Fashion

Happy Monday y’all! Hope all of your weekends were relaxing and fun all at the same time. In case you haven’t noticed, festival fever is in full throttle right now, and everywhere we look we’re seeing some fresh festi fashions.

Now before we jump into this, have you guys heard of the Coachella Diet? The diet focuses on amping up your workout to the max before a festival weekend begins. In recent years, the media has made these festivals very image-driven, with a particular focus on crop tops and booty cut-offs. While we love ourselves some bohemian looks, we can’t emphasize enough our passion for a healthy body image. Let’s try to remember that these festivals are about music, fun with friends, and being carefree. You can still be gorgeous and trendy without crash dieting and worrying about your pant size beforehand.

On another (and more upbeat) note… Have you guys ever seen Jimmy Kimmel’s Lie Witness News, which pranks “music loving” hipsters at festivals? It’s worth a watch for a quick laugh!
