My Hott Addiction – Yoga to Relieve Headaches

Prior to last summer, I had struggled with chronic headaches every hour of every day for almost six years. After endless attempts with various medications, doctor and specialist appointments, lots of blood-work, alternative medicine adventures, and ER visits accompanied by pain, tears and frustration, I had finally come to the conclusion that I would be facing daily headaches around the clock for the rest of my life.  Then, one day last summer, a friend asked me to tag along with her to a hot yoga class (yoga in a room typically somewhere between 95-105 degrees Fahrenheit-sounds like a blast right?). I had taken yoga classes in the past, so I figured I’m sure hot yoga will be just as easy.

Fashion, Fire Dancers & Fast Cars, Oh My!

On Saturday, June 29th, Maniac Magazine hosted their 8th annual White Party at The Smart House on Mt. Washington.

Model Life: Tidal Cool Creations Swimwear Safari Shoot

Throughout the entire photo shoot process – before, during, and after, there’s never a dull moment. Take a peek…   Weeks before the shoot – Being bikini body ready With the launch of Pretty Living PR in January of 2013, and finishing up my senior year in college, I definitely didn’t get to spend as much time working out as I would have liked to last semester. But with some more flexibility in my schedule now, I’m working my butt off (literally) with exercising six days a week. I get bored super easily, so I like to mix things up between personal training sessions at the gym, hot yoga, ballet classes, and lots of outdoor runs!
