Friday Love: 1
Some Fridays I will devote this space to music, podcasts, videos, books and beyond that are making me FEEL something. While the Internet can be a confusing and crazy place, there is also a wealth of incredible content creators that deserve to be celebrated...and that is my intention here.
Davida Kugelmass of The Healthy Maven started her podcast early this year, and it quickly became a staple in my weekly pod rotation. And this episode went above and beyond. This week's guest was Robyn Nohling, a dietitian who was INSTRUMENTAL in my own eating disorder recovery and journey. She talks everything from learning to accept your body's natural "set weight" point to the importance of finding a partner in life who embraces your body and it's beautiful changes as time goes on. There is so much incredible information here - it might be hard to listen just once.
Singing: Malibu by Miley Cyrus
Maybe it's the fact that I just got back from a trip to California. Maybe it's the fact that I've missed Miley making music. Maybe it's the fact that it's summertime. Maybe it's all these reasons and more...anywho, this song is magical.
Watching: Chinae Alexander's YouTube channel
Chinae is a POWERhouse if I have ever seen one. Originally known as GETFITBROOKLYN, she has made a name for herself in the scene of empowering fitness role models, through honest and candid discussions sharing her own health journey and how she has made exercise work for her busy lifestyle. And her new YouTube channel is FIRE - from vlogging her spicy nights on the town in NYC to answering any question you want to know about sex, Chinae covers it all and is insanely hilarious to boot.
Eating and Drinking:
The Purista margarita from Gracias Madre in West Hollywood last week. Margaritas are my drink of choice when on vacation, and this one blew all of the others out of the salt-trimmed pool.
This Instagram from Bandier. Because there is no life without carbs.
Two of my FAVORITE health and wellness bloggers are hosting a meet-up in Portland this weekend, and I absolutely cannot wait!
Happy Friday, my dears!
