Blogilates // Stella: Staying on this fitness kick, I want to recommend Blogilates. Maybe someday I will return to a gym membership, but in the meantime, I will be working out with Cassey. I love these videos because all you need is yourself, no crazy equipment required. Cassey is so energetic and vivacious that she gives you the motivation to work through these videos, and you will need it because her workouts are HARD. It leaves you sweating and out of breath followed with muscles that are satisfyingly sore the next day.
Pendant Planning // Kendall: I move into a new house next Thursday. I leave for three weeks in Costa Rica next Friday. I have loads of work and packing to get done prior to departure, AND I cannot stop looking for design inspiration for our new home. The home that I won’t actually spend time in until my return from Costa Rica. I am currently obsessing over how much lighting can change the look of a space. We are moving into an all wood interior cabin and it needs something to bring it into this decade. Pendants lights have me all giddy due to what you can get without spending a fortune. Next I just need to learn how to install on my own. Challenge accepted!
NPR Politics Podcast // Allie: It’s been a very long, mentally and emotionally exhausting election season and we’ve still got a long way to go. If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably been searching desperately for a way to stay informed on the presidential election without being infuriated by it. I reached a point a few weeks back where I was ready to tune out completely – delete my Facebook account, turn off the 24-hour sensationalized news and give up on trying to comprehend the terrifying state of modern american politics all together. But it’s that kind of behavior that perpetuates the unfortunate position we’re in. So instead of tuning out, I looked at the smart, well informed and well balanced people around me and looked at how they digested their information. NPR’s Politics podcast came up time and time again and it hasn’t disappointed, yet.
