6 Things I'm Loving Right Now, November 2016

Is it just me, or did November fly right past us? It's a true testament to the general busy-ness of life, which I'm sure you know all about. To keep it chill, I thought I'd reflect on a few of my favorite things. It's always so hard to narrow it down to six, but nonetheless, I enjoy it when people say "hey, you should check this out" or "man, this is great." I find it informative and inspiring in various ways, and maybe you will, too.

1) Hourglass Makeup and Marc Jacobs Lipgloss
I love makeup. It's too much fun. A few months ago, Influenster sent me an Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish foundation stick. I had to guess at the color, and it ended up working out because I had a tan. I've since switched to something a little lighter. At $46, it's not the cheapest foundation you'll ever buy,'s pretty good. I love the coverage, and it couldn't go on any easier. You don't need much, which means the tube'll last a long time. I wish I could show you a decent picture of it on me, but for now, here's the stick itself...

...and my new Marc Jacobs Enamored High Shine Gloss Lip Lacquer in Allow Me. I don't know where I got it, but I've had a teeny tiny little tube of this stuff for the longest time. Finally bit the bullet and bought the full-size tube. It's my favorite gloss. The right amount of color and shine. Perfect for every day, perfect over my favorite MAC lipstick in Brave.

2) Young Living Stress Away Essential Oil

You guys. Please get yourself some of this stuff if you have access to Young Living oils. It's so good in so many ways. We did a yin yoga workshop at the gym a few weeks ago and my instructor piped this stuff through the studio. Hooked. Instantly. She handed out the little roller ball to all the students. I had her buy me the bottle, and then I made my own roller ball. Seriously, it's now my daily perfume.

3) The November POPSUGAR Must Have Box

Have I told you lately how much I love the POPSUGAR Must Have subscription box? Stop right now and think about all the people you have to buy presents for. Who can you send this to because, seriously, they'll love it. This month's box was filled with goodies, and I'm so grateful to them for sending it my way. It came with a rose gold Kendra Scott bracelet and some popcorn you'll never see because I ate it right up. If you want your own box, you'll save $5 if you use SHOP5 at checkout.

4) TRX
I've been on a huge TRX kick lately. I'm teaching a TRX class again, and have been able to take a few TRX Bootcamps as well. I've also been training (torturing?) my clients with them, too. I've said it before and I'll say it again: Get yourself into a TRX class pronto! Man, it has this ability to work your muscle groups simultaneously for the most effective, time-saving workout ever.

5) New Balance Shoes

So pretty. So comfy. I bought these at the start of Fall and have basically been wearing them whenever I am outside of the gym. Because, you know, you can take a girl out of the gym but you can't take the gym out of the girl. So these shoes are a bit of a fashion compromise: Extremely cute and on-trend, yet totally comfortable and much like the running shoes I basically live in all day at work. I got them from Athleta using the discount offered to all fitness professionals. Sa-weet score!

6) Running Outside in Colder Weather
This is my absolute favorite time of year to run outside. I would much rather run in the cold than in the sweltering heat of summer. Yuck! That Thanksgiving Day Turkey Run I've been talking about? I snagged a birthday PR of 22:05 and I couldn't be happier with that time. I followed it up with a nice 6-miler on Sunday:

Question: What is one thing you are absolutely loving right now? A product, book, class? I know there's something you're obsessed with, so tell me about it!
