Word of the Month: LOVE

I know….. LOVE for February, maybe not so original?

Yes, we think of this month about Valentines day – the love we have for one another or for a significant other. It’s hugely important to have others in our lives that we love and what a beautiful thing to have a special day each year designated to celebrate that love. With that said, EVERYDAY should be a day we celebrate love for others and for ourselves! This is why we chose to focus on “Love” with our Dailey Method communities all month long. After all, it’s a proven fact that when you show yourself the love and kindness you deserve, it radiates outwards to your families, friends and out into the world.

How do you show yourself love? Do you take a few minutes each day to meditate and practice gratitude? Do you schedule your workouts and make time to strengthen your body? Do you nourish your body with food that makes you feel good? Find out what fuels you, inspires you and refreshes you. Do that, every day, because your body, mind and soul will thank you!

With the February Word of the Month “Love” I want to share with you some of the things that I, and we, at the Dailey Method love the most! These are things you can incorporate into your life to give yourself the love and self care you deserve. These companies love us too and have all shared a discount code with you to share their LOVE!

Dino apparel is one of my all time favorites – the designer, her story, her friendship and her products are crazy amazing! I honestly own the Dino everywhere pullover in 6 colors and their jumpsuit in 3. Suzanne’s tag line is “live softly” and believe me, in Dino – you do! Another bonus is that her garments are made from fabric to finished product in Downtown Los Angeles using family owned-and-operated makers. I love supporting family owned businesses, especially when women are at the helm.

Tula is my favorite new skincare company. They use probiotics (like vitamin A, C and E, blueberries and tumeric, to name a few) as the foundation of each of their products. Applying probiotics to your skin has been clinically proven to help promote hydration and clarity and to improve the appearance of inflammation. My teenage daughter and I both have used the products and both love and appreciate the visible results.

Riddle Oil – I am a huge fan of this Botanical line that was created with all skin types in mind. All of their ingredients are completely 100% USDA Certified Organic, Artisan Crafted and Fair Trade. This means they are good for us, for others and a BIG plus – for the environment! What’s not to love about that? Truthfully, I wear their scents every day. They smell amazing, but also are light enough that I can workout or be at the Studio and not be overwhelmed or offend others with scent. Muse and Santal are my two favorites. Riddle oil was also my gift of choice this year for Holiday gift giving!

Project you This is an amazing book and website created by Neely Mack, a long time Dailey Method Student. She wrote this based on her own experience and experimentation on healing herself. Her goal is to help you achieve true health and longevity by engaging the three pillars of wellness – internal (nutrition and gut health), physical (exercise and sleep) and emotional and spiritual self-care – and that all 3 together will help your body act and feel younger. I find her so inspiring – and to look and talk to her – she truly epitomizes the image of health!

TDM Circular band

Of course I couldn’t talk about self love without the importance of taking care of your body. Your strength, alignment and flexibility are all integral components to true self care. We’ve added circular resistance bands to our repertoire recently that are only $8 and an amazing way to work on strength and tone of your hips, outer thighs and side seat. It’s also an amazing tool for gaining strength and stability for your knees. You can use them for a quick workout at home or if you’re an online subscriber we have a class on the site that incorporates the bands and we will be adding more soon! Additionally, here is a discount on a package bundle for all the equipment you need for your at home practice.

Go ahead and show yourself some love this month and every month. You’re worth it!

My Post Workout Must-Haves

Do you rush from class into life? Me too. Here are my recommendations for moving from class straight into your day…. Effortlessly.

Lush “No Drought” Dry Shampoo:

I promise I will- but I may never have to wash my hair again. Kind of magic. I thought I wouldn’t like the powder vs. a spray but it’s that good. And smells fantastic!

 

ColorScience Sunforgettable Broad Spectrum 50:

I’m a big proponent of sunscreen and this one is the perfect one for the middle of the day. Acts like a tinted powder and then has the added protection of sunscreen. Lives in my purse.

Revitalash High Def Eye Brow Gel:

I don’t wear a lot of makeup- I prefer the “non makeup” made up look. This is a life saver for me. Enough tint to make me look “together” and lasts all day long. Even when I take an interval!

Terry Hyaluronic blush:

This is a new fave. So easy to apply, gives you the perfect glow and stays on. I use blushberry and think almost any coloring could use the same.

Escentric Molecules Scents.

Scents are really difficult for a lot of people to tolerate in a gym setting. This line is very fresh and light and would never offend. It’s right in the middle of male/ female spectrum so appeals to all.

Pacifica Aquarian Gaze Water Resistant Mascara:

screen-shot-2016-10-24-at-1-06-45-pm
This is the perfect mascara that you can apply pre class and still have on afterwards. Even if you take Dailey Interval or Dailey Cycle!

Subtle Luxury Cocoon Sweater:

I have this in 4 different colors. It’s my favorite cozy light layer in almost any weather. And makes your leggings respectable for the grocery store.

Mother Denim:
I understand this requires a change and we want to go from one to the other. But sometimes we just can’t. These jeans feel like my leggings. They have the same high waist that I love and the perfect amount of stretch.

Come on – it’s my blog! How could I not throw a little fashion into it???

Happy Beautiful Transitions!

Spring Fashion Round-Up

Even though this has been a particularly warm winter in California, there’s been a change the past couple weeks that definitely makes it feel like spring. Winter is about being warm and cozy so when spring rolls around it motivates me to shift my wardrobe towards more color and fun. Here are some of my current favorites right now!

Florals are really in this Spring and I love the color palette of these Onzie ones. I’m a fan of flowy tops and this one from Alo is great- fitted underneath but loose on top so it still shows your shape. It also has a great mesh back.

I personally love high waisted pants and these ones by Onzie are great!  Open back tanks and T’s are still as strong as ever. This Joah Brown line has incredibly soft fabrics and good price points. It gives you a back view of your strappy sports bra and highlights all the seat work you’ve been doing!

Muscle tanks are everywhere and I love this one from Harvest with the peacock. My daughter Nico and I both have it – but she won’t wear it on the same day as me. I guess it’s not cool when you’re 13 to be twins with your Mom… Although the pants are long and black I’ll still wear them all Spring because I love the fit. I’ll just wear my Birkenstocks instead of my boots.

And of course no outfit is complete without my Burn Bright socks. Who doesn’t want an empowering message to highlight your feet?!

Happy (fashionable) spring!
