Hello Hello! Happy Friday! What are you up to this weekend? It’s a frozen tundra here in Tucson – 30 degrees. My Arizona soul suffers – and I remember to live in my sauna blanket at least once a day. Aside from that, P has a soccer game, we have a dinner party with friends on Saturday (my favourite), and I’m looking forward to sleeping in on Sunday. I hope you have a fun and wonderful weekend ahead!
Something I wanted to include from last week: a class at DEFINE in San Diego! My friend Carina started DEFINE and is an incredible teacher – we taught barre together when I lived in San Diego and I’ve always loved taking her classes.
If you haven’t taken a Lagree class yet, you’ll be delighted 😉 It’s SO challenging and totally different from traditional Reformer Pilates. I used to take Lagree classes in San Diego but we don’t have a local studio…wish we did! It was so amazing to see her, check out the beautiful studio and take part in her classes. If you’re in the SD space, be sure to check it out!

It’s time for the weekly Friday Faves Party! Here I am sharing some of my favorite finds from the week and from around the web. I’m always happy to hear about your favorites too, so please write something you love in the comments below.
Read, see, hear:
LOVED this Sakara podcast episode with one of my favorite IG followers, Dr. Connealy.
I can’t wait to see A man named Otto (and read the book years ago). Has anyone seen it??
It was heartbreaking yet enjoyable to read.
Health, fitness and good food:
The EquiLife detox starts on Monday and I’m spending some time this weekend collecting recipes and preparing for days 3-7. You can still join in at your own pace if you want to try it out. My link and the code FITNESSISTA20 will give you a 20% discount on your first. I’m definitely looking forward to some amazing sleep and a nutritional reset. If you decide to join us, we will share our experiences on my Facebook wellness page! Join here if you want another place to connect. I plan to release many more videos and hot topics in 2023.
Love your booty workout
Ways to boost your metabolism after 40
Another reason to potentially add yoga to your routine!
Fashion + Beauty:
Beauty counter free shipping for the next few days! They rarely do so and it’s a great time to stock up on some of your favorites. I will be ordering another All Bright C serum and a color intense lipstick. Christmas sets are also available as a last chance!
Amazon fashion finds!
Here are the merchandise from this month’s Amazon Fashion Influencer Program:
This cute sweater for Valentine’s Day! I wanted something with hearts on it and this is perfect
Those sunglasses that look MUCH more expensive
A dress for Trevor’s wedding! I didn’t want to spend a lot of money – they required the family to wear black and I didn’t see any that I really loved – so I went with that option.
Those pajamas! I love the fabric and the color. I’m in between sizes and have reduced this one here.
New nail palette! I’ve been wearing dip or gel all the time for two years and wanted to give my nails a break. They’re quite damaged from all the drilling and getting my nails done is such a waste of time. If I get a pedicure and a bath, it’s about two hours. For now I will just paint them, let them heal and enjoy the extra hour of free time every two weeks. This is Sweater Weather’s liquid glass palette and I found a referral link in my account that will give you a $5 discount.
Happy Friday, friends! Have a wonderful weekend.
