What I’m Loving: January

You guys there is so much I’m loving right now. January is one of my favorite months because it just feels so fresh. Not to mention that healthy stuff is suddenly all the rage. I love it. And this January is no exception! So here are a few of the things that I’m obsessed with right now:

Jordan, Me, and Samantha at PlankRVA

New workout classes.

I had a chance to check out PlankRVA and take a megaformer class. I had no idea what I was getting into but it turned out to be super fun. If you haven’t heard of megaformer classes, they’re sort of like pilates style classes but there’s a machine that you use the do the moves. It makes the moves much harder so it’s super effective. I was a little nervous because it seemed kind of complicated but the instructor was so helpful and the class was really fun. Honestly, it went by so fast. I was sore the next day, so that’s a good sign. If you’re in Richmond, PlankRVA is in the Innsbrook area, so it’s easy to get to no matter where you are!


Local juice bars.

You know I love my juicer but sometimes I just don’t want to go to the store to buy a bunch of produce and make a huge mess in my kitchen. That’s why I’m pretty pumped that Richmond has been upping their juice game. I had a chance to check out Ginger Juice this week and we got to try a bunch of different things on their menu. Their chef is amazing and all of the good was exceptional. I highly recommend the kale salad or the avocado toast. (The avocado toast has this delicious vegan mayo that’s cashew based. It’s so good!) All of their juice is cold-pressed, so you’re not missing out on any nutrients.



While we’re on the subject of drinks…Alex has been getting into cocktail making and I’ve had the pleasure of being the taste-tester. It’s been fun to dive into a totally new thing and he’s made some really yummy ones, which got us thinking about healthier cocktails. I’ll have a few recipes coming your way!

Grace Not Perfection.

My friend Jordan (pictured on the left in that top photo) told me about this book and I’m glad I ordered it. (I literally went straight home and ordered it from Amazon.) It’s SO GOOD. I love Emily’s message and I think it’s a good reminder for bloggers, mom, and basically any woman with a smartphone. Seriously, I want to buy it for every woman in my life. P.S. it’s still on sale on Amazon so hurry up.

What are you loving lately?


  1. OK, heading to Amazon now for a little Grace! Boy, I am also checking to see if there is a Ginger Juice near me!

  2. I’m loving all the new healthy snacks appearing on the shelves. I’m also loving citrus cocktails and fresh pressed juices too! And recently I’ve been loving TRX workouts !

  3. I’ve actually been writing a bit more myself and I have been enjoying it. I’ll have to take a look at that book in Amazon…it does look like something I would enjoy.

  4. I absolutely loved that book- I read it twice!

  5. I was in Richmond last year. Wish I had known about this place. I would have totally checked it out. Love fresh juices and that Tumeric shot sounds really interesting.

  6. im loving different kombucha right now..hopefully dive into more research and have a post sometime soon 🙂

  7. I’ve heard that that class is really tough from Susie at SuzLyfe. I would love to take something like that; Pilates moves are some of my favorite.

    • Yeah! It was super fun because it was so different from what I’m used to! And I was definitely sore for awhile 🙂

  8. Yes! I keep seeing that book on Emily’s insta page and always forget to buy it!
    Ginger has been my theme lately! Just made ginger salmon last night 🙂

  9. A little teaser and you’ve convinced me I need to check out that book. I started a new workout this week too, Pure Barre. Loving it!

  10. I have been loving these protein nut bars that I made for breakfast… Literally have eaten one every day for the past two weeks! I’ve also been loving cheese and just bought about 7 blocks of it to keep in the fridge (such a Wisconsinite!).

  11. That book looks super cute! Thanks for the suggestion. Trying to read more…
