Tips for effortless summer beauty


I am honestly and truly a fall season kind of gal. The colors, the crunchy leaves, the chilly weather and a reason to bust out the boots and scarves. Yes please!

And my girl Chella is just that person for me. Goth rocker meets Mormon mama fitness blogger and quickly become fast friends. Her smile, love for life and nerdy introvert side really speak to me.

Coaching is a forever journey to me, just like with religion and higher education, you never really stop. You never stop learning, growing, deciding to do and be just a little bit better each and every day. And today I am just so humbled.
