A Water Bottle…AND Foam Roller?!?

My friends over at Mobot Nation just launched their Indie Go Go campaign for the world’s first foam roller + water bottle combination. “Genius” would be an understatement. These easy-to-carry bottles are perfect for taking on hikes, to the gym, to rugby games, or even stashing in your purse for a lunch break roll out. Plus, they come in fun colors; who says rolling has to be boring? Help them reach their goal at their campaign below!

Weekend Recap!

I can’t believe it’s basically mid-August already! Where has the time gone?

J and I went to the gym on Friday and enjoyed a killer legs workout. We had a Mother’s Market shake afterwards and split a sandwich from Sprouts. Both hit the spot!


I spent Friday night performing with my improv team. Afterwards, J and I went out with our friends Tiffany and Taylor for night time appetizers at TGI Friday’s. Unlimited appetizers for $10? Count me in! The only catch is you get an unlimited amount of one appetizer. However, we all ordered a different appetizer and were able to share! However, we didn’t make it nearly as long as we thought. Oops!

Saturday was spent running errands and doing some shopping. I love buying new clothes as we transition into fall. I grabbed a garden salad from Wendy’s for a quick snack.


I continued the shopping trend at night and did some shopping with my mom, which is always a fun time.

Sunday was a more relaxed day; I baked up some healthy banana and chia bars in the morning. (Stay tuned for the recipe!).




I also made a run to Trader Joe’s and stocked up on some goodies. My favorite purchases? Vegetable fried rice, pita crackers, and of course,  the harvest salad!

 I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! :)

The Best Headbands EVER



As you can probably tell from pictures, I have long hair. And a lot of it, at that. To add to the chaos of it, I have tons of baby hairs that like to make little bird nests on the sides of my heads. I’ve always had issues finding headbands that fit my (slightly larger than normal) head and would stay on for rugby games. I also enjoy showing my personality on the field with bright colored and patterned headbands.

The lovely folks at Owl Be Sweatin’ reached out to me and sent me some absolutely gorgeous headbands. I received a  Robin’s Egg blue Chevron headband, a silver sequin headband, and Indian Summer. I fell in love with all the prints right away and had a very hard time choosing my favorites. (Honorable mentions: Aztec Warrior, Candy Cane, Land of The Free [Limited Edition, so act quick!!!], Wild Side, and See Ya Later Alligator).

I love wearing headbands during the gym and even on nights out. Here’s a picture of me at the gym, followed by one before I went out for a fun summer night. I loved how versatile the headbands were and how they were able to stay put on my head, no matter the activity.




I love that Owl Be Sweatin’ Headbands are….

Adjustable. I have a large head, but because of the adjustable band, it fit me perfectly. Sometimes headbands feel like rubber bands on my head, but these were perfect. They could also fit young girls, which is awesome. 

Machine Washable. I used to have headbands that would get so dirty from rugby games, but I couldn’t wash them. Owl Be Sweatin headbands are machine washable, which is great, because I like being clean! ;) Be sure to hang them to dry to preserve their greatness, though!

Affordable. I’ve spent upwards of $15 on headbands, even ones that didn’t stay on too well. These run around $12.

Stylish. I was able to style these headbands into my normal day-to-day outfits, not just the gym or rugby practice! I love using the silver sequin headband to spice up my outfits when I go out at night.

Non-Slip. I’ve had headbands that claimed to be non-slip fall off within one tackle or a quick run. These are truly non-slip. I went through an entire rugby practice, two mile run, and weights at the gym and I didn’t have to adjust the band once.

And it gets better….use the code “UNDERTHESTICKS” for a 15% discount at Owl Be Sweatin’! But, hurry, it’s only valid until July 31, 2014!
