2 Yogis You Need to Follow on Instagram

2 Yogis You NEED to Follow on Instagram

I made a promise to myself at the beginning of this year that I would do yoga, no matter what, every single day. I’m proud to report that 11 months later, I’ve actually stayed true to that promise. I can’t say that it hasn’t been difficult. I had to overcome some stumbling blocks along the way. I had a pretty bad cold earlier in the year, I traveled quite a bit, and other times I was just plain exhausted. Even still, I managed to squeeze in at least 15 minutes to an hour of yoga everyday and I’m so glad that I did!

From time to time I need a little motivation. It just takes a little bit of inspiration to spark a fire in you that burns bright and makes you not ever want to quit. I turn to Instagram in my moments of weakness (don’t judge me) and I swoon over the incredible yogis that decorate my feed. Yeah. Sometimes it’s like that for sure. I don’t know which one I love more, but Christine Hewitt and Soren Buchanan are probably my top 2/number 1 favorites.

These ladies definitely find the right balance (no pun intended) between physical fitness and showcasing the human body as an organic piece of art. I’m way into the colors and movement captured by these photos and their feeds never cease to motivate me. So if you need a little bit of inspo, just check out some of these incredible photos and join the movement. #yogaeverydamnday

Washington, DC Inspiration

This is going to be a quick post. I’m totally exhausted from traveling! I just got back from a weekend trip to DC. When I travel I always look for design inspiration for my fixer upper projects back home. It’s always cool to see how different places use their surroundings to inform the way spaces are designed.

I was down in DC for a close friend’s wedding. It’s certainly not the first time I’ve been to DC, but it was the first time that I paid more attention to architecture and design. There are tons of similarities between Northeast cities. I feel like if you’ve seen one brownstone, you’ve seen them all. Sometimes you gotta do a double take. In fact, I was staying in the Penn Quarter section of DC, and happened upon a Carmine’s location! It looks like a smaller version of the Upper West Side location.

The one glaring difference between DC and other Northeast cities was the bold color choices I saw on the exteriors of a lot of brownstones.

Even the interiors of the buildings had bold colors and crazy designs.

There was certainly a ton of eclectic mid century modern design where I was in DC. I’m not a big fan of that so much, but it did fit the city really well. it almost made me love that style of design.
