A new day brings a new beginning
How was your first week on the 30 Day's to Healthy Living & Beyond? I know by now you are finding your favourite Arbonne products and a routine where to fit them in. I've featured a workout list in every weekly plan to help encourage movement along with this program. I love the Ballet Beautiful workouts I featured last week, they are always my go to, but recently I have been doing this new yoga workout with Adriene when I can't make it to my local classes, and really like her energy and flow. I hope you'll check it out and let me know what you think!

Have you heard of Erin Ireland? I'd like to think we are BFF's, she just doesn't know it yet. Sure we've tweeted and she's a gal after my own heart here on the WestCoast, but it's her TO DIE FOR Vegan recipes that really have my heart. These cookie balls are better than anything you've ever tasted. I PROMISE. You will think these are the real deal.
