Thank you to Ashlee Hamon Photography for capturing the awesome photos of me and my Pluggz!


Three years ago on May 28, 2012 this yoga teacher decided to create a blog.


My first blog post was nothing extraordinary.

The topic? The Trials and Tribulations of Making an Omelet. (Still can’t do this BTW. I now cheat and use only an omelet pan! But shh! Let’s keep that our little secret.) There were no pictures. No one commented. I doubt anyone even *read* the post.

But I kept writing.

My next post should have been a sign of things to come! I wrote about the *first* time a bird pooped on me. Again, no photos. Short. Funny. If I had only known that this would be the first COUNTLESS times a bird has pooped on me. I mean, in the past three years, I have been pooped on so many times (especially on runs) that I have actually lost count of the number of times. Let me just say this, I sure hope it *is* good luck! And it’s gotta be, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰

And I kept writing. Posts on yoga. Posts on fashion. Recipes. Funny stories. In June of 2013, almost a year after starting my blog, I tackled my first 21 day Instagram/Twitter/Facebook #inversionaday challenge! (I think we should do another inversion one! Brittany Suell–what do you think?)


Looking back, I’m so amazed by this challenge! I had no idea what I was doing but remember being overwhelmed by the support! It’s cool when I go back to realize my challenge started this hashtag on Instagram! Wahoo! Also to realize that 169 people are marked as participating on Facebook!


And I kept going. I started #PassLove in 2014 as a way to better change the world through love and make my imprint in the world. A simple hashtag and philosophy that has transformed my confidence and self-love–even how I teach my yoga!

The blog has kept going, growing, and thriving! I’ve formed amazing relationships with brands, bloggers, fellow yogis, fashion lovers, cooks, runners, you name it! I am simply in awe by it all!

Today is my three year blogiversary!!! WOWZA! It’s hard to believe it’s been three years!!

This blog has changed my business, it has changed my life, and it has brought me greater joy than I ever imagined when I first sat down to write about that difficult omelet! I am so grateful to you all for your support, your readership, your enthusiasm, and your participation. It means more than you will ever know!

One of the amazing things this blog has introduced me to is Pluggz. (You may remember them on the blog here, here, and here!)


I am beyond impressed with everything Pluggz stands for. The grounding technology. The comfort. The style. The fabulous and inspiring group of women who run the company. Everything = truly amazin! I am so thrilled to be an ambassador for Pluggz!! If you aren’t already on their mailing list, sign up today! (You get super cool coupons, discounts, news, and more!)

The new Pluggz fold-ups have changed my life.

Let me show you why!

They come in this cute bag for easy portability (it fits nicely in my tote bag BTW!)


Take them out and voila! Instant adorableness:


They are also highly supportive, here’s an up close look at the shoes:


PLUS they contain the same earthing technology and signature trampoline heel found in all Pluggz! (Do you see the conductive plug in the center of the shoe?) Plus, they are the most comfortable ballet flat shoes I have ever worn. Perfect to slip on after teaching yoga class, after wearing heels out and about, or just to run errands all over town.

I’m in love!


See how cute they look on my feet?


And here’s a fuller view:


Don’t you just love them too?

Guys, don’t despair. Pluggz also has your back with their signature Drivers for men!


These suede moccasins contain the same grounding technology with man-friendly fashion and comfort!
