Charlotte Street on Etsy Review & 50% off code!

Are you a beret girl? Well, I can tell you I had never worn one till I reviewed one for Charlotte Street on Etsy . I must admit when I first got it I wasn't sure I could pull it off. But, as any good little reviewer does, I tried it out for several days in a row and...LOVE it! Even my husband who is funny about some of the stuff I wear on my head liked it; that's saying a lot! lol! ;) This beret is only one item of several cool items on Charlotte Street's shop on Etsy (also called ChaZarlotte's shop). AND, each item is one of a kind! Charlotte, the owner makes all of her items out of recycled sweaters called: upcycling . I guess that means up-ing the coolness factor because she does just that! (I know, super cheesy but so true! ha!) :) This was one of the reasons I was drawn to her shop. What a great way to reuse an old sweater and so economical! The result is looking fabulous! Her products include wristies (I love the button detail), her berets of course, Super

GIVEAWAY: Yoga By The Dozen DVD for kids! -CLOSED-

Winner My daughter and I were able to review Yoga By The Dozen , a great DVD for kids! Every morning my husband does yoga, and my girl always wants to do it with him.... or under him, or on top of him.  :)  She's a great 30 lb. weight to make any exercise more strenuous. :)  Anyway, I knew she would love a DVD of her people doing yoga.   I love putting in a DVD for her that won't make her zone out, instead it helps her stay active and it's fun!  I really like the instructor JoAnna and how she teaches the kids.  No cheesiness either. :)  She teaches them simply and in memorable ways.  I would recommend this DVD to anyone who has, or knows  kids from 2 to 6.   Yoga By The Dozen is $17.99   You can watch a preview of the DVD . You can win a Yoga By The Dozen DVD!

Review: 30 Day Challenge SLC Bikram Yoga: Week 2

I'm half-way through my Bikram Yoga 30 day challenge ! Woo hoo! Is it weird to say that it's going by fast? Well, Everyday doesn't feel like that. For the majority of my classes, I have felt pretty focused, with the 90 minutes going by effortlessly. Every once in awhile I've had some yoga classes where I've felt like it will never end. During these classes I feel off; poses seem harder to hold, and the instructor seems like they forgot to tell us to stop and switch sides. My frustration then leads to impatience and doubt. These obstacle classes have taught me some perseverance. I am learning to let that negativity go and just get on with it. Basically thinking, I'm here, this is my time, work your butt off, and do with what you've got today. Today was one of those days where I felt as if I could throw in the towel early. I wasn't planning on leaving, but I thought of sitting some poses out. I had some decent excuses in my head. But when it
