Why you totally need to try a jump rope workout | The super easy, fun exercise that supports your heart health, helps with bone density, increases your balance, coordination and flexibility and so much more. Includes a free self care planner! Woohoo! Click through for the post.

Hello Lovelies: 

Looking for a fantastic way to exercise – look no further, because a jump rope workout is amazing!

If your childhood was anything like mine, you probably spent a lot of time running around with a jump rope! It was such a great way to play. And, my favourite part, it was a wonderful way to pass the time solo and with a group of friends. We’re talking double dutch baby!

But somehow that all fell to the way side when I grew up. And I imagine I’m not alone! But it turns out that skipping is more than just a fun game to play as a kid… it’s actually a really powerful (and still really freaking fun) way to exercise.

Here’s why you and I should totally start doing a jump rope workout:

Hello Lovelies:

Do you ever feel like you’re stuck in the middle of a never ending to-do list? There are always a million things that need to be done. Many of us work our booties off all day only to come home and work even more. But how often do you sit back and literally do nothing?

Even in our free time, we often fill the void with other activities… from checking e-mails, to returning texts and phone calls, to doing all of those chores that seriously seem to never end. Doing nothing can leave us feeling guilty. But if there’s one thing you add to your self-care routine it definitely needs to be time to do nothing. It’s anything but a waste of time.

Let’s talk about why doing nothing can be one of the best things that you can do for yourself.

DIY White Chocolate and Coconut Oil Bath Melts

DIY White Chocolate and Coconut Oil Bath Melts

Hello Lovelies:

A couple of weeks ago, we talked about some awesome additions you can add to your self-care routine. A hot bath with a good book is one of my personal favourite self care activities.

Definitely an unwanted hot bath side effect… Which is why I love to make my own oil bath melts.

You can totally enjoy a nice, hot bath on the regular and still keep your skin healthy, soft and nourished too! Let me show you how to make these marvelous White Chocolate and Coconut Oil Bath Melts that can help you do just that.
