Little Things. Big difference.


I’ll admit it, when it comes to certain little healthy living essentials, I am, to put it quite delicately, cheap. I am known to drink out of the same old plastic Crystal Geyser bottle for a month straight (or until my dog chews it up). I will contemplate spending $200 on a pair of torn up jeans, but have a hard time forking over $5 for a 3-for-1 deal on socks. And, I kid you not, I still have a grey sports bra from…my sophomore year of high school. As disgusting as that might sound, it is confirmation that Champion bras are built to last. And no it does not have permastink.

DIY Beach Souvenir Necklace


Whenever I travel to a beach, I like to keep a little bit of sand and some shells as a souvenir. I am actually looking at a bottle of sand from the Maldives and little tray full of shells on a shelf behind my computer as I type this. Anywho, I thought it would be fun to try and make these souvenirs a little more wearable.

So, I made a necklace.

Of course I made it using things I found around the house, because if I actually had to go buy something, the probability of me actually doing this DIY would be quite slim.

Every Thursday, for over a year now, I’ve been writing a column over at titled SWELLivin. (I’ve shared a few posts over here too.) It’s kind of a healthy living column, without being a healthy living column. If that makes sense.  Well, looking over it, and reading the posts, I am really pretty darn proud of it. High five.

So, here are a few of the images from some posts. But I suggest going over and reading a bunch too. I tend to be pretty blunt when it comes to talking about this stuff. And if one day, you happen to be craving a fitness tip by yours truly, think of this column as your library. 

Fun times. I love being able to spread the positivity, honest approach to healthy living, and love for queso dip.
