How we made our Land Cruiser a road trip vehicle.

Have you seen #vanlife trending on social media lately? Well, we took that idea and dreamed up #cruiserlife. Yup, we converted our 2001 Land Cruiser into one epic road trip vehicle. Since November, this bad boy has helped us cruise comfortably across America to explore destinations like the Oregon coast, Crater Lake, Escalante, Mammoth Lakes, Alabama Hills, Death Valley, Moab, Arches National Park, Joshua Tree, Zion and more! I’ve recently gotten loads of questions on Instagram about our setup so I thought it might be helpful to do a little blog post on the topic.

Adrenal Fatigue. My journey involved multiple opinions, several doctors and lots of testing. For the purpose of this post, I wanted to dive deep and explain what exactly Adrenal Fatigue is in my own words as best I can and share some resources I’ve found to be super helpful.

My Morning: Barre3 + Matcha Smoothie Recipe

Hey y’all. For today’s post, I thought it would be fun to walk you through my average morning. I’ve been utilizing Class Pass for about two years now and I honestly can’t shake it because I love the flexibility it gives me with my workouts. Almost more so now than ever because I’m taking a break from running to focusing on low-key mindful movement and overall a more balanced workout regime. Two usual suspects in my weekly routine consist of Barre3 and a green smoothie, so I thought I’d share more about my two favorite things!

Joshua Tree and Pioneertown Motel

Our winter road trip is complete. Starting end of November we journeyed from Portland down the coast to Los Angeles and then to Joshua Tree before heading east to Vegas, Zion, Grand Canyon, Antelope Canyon, Monument Valley, + more. Joshua Tree has been on my list since we got married last year in Palm Springs. Let me tell you, I was not disappointed. It’s one magical place — especially if you appreciate the landscape and the great outdoors. It really is an inspiring place.

Essential oils I use weekly

I’ve received a few questions lately about what supplements I take and why, which I fully plan to report on next week but before going there, I wanted to chat essential oils. When I shared my daily “ish” rituals recently on Instagram, I totally forgot to include oils, which is crazy because they are totally something I use on the daily — just in different various ways. So, I thought before getting to supplements, it would be beneficial to share my top essential oils and how I personally use them.

Stand up for your health

I’ve seen a few posts over the last several months from bloggers I admire sharing their personal health stories to help spread awareness. And for that reason, I am feeling inspired to share mine. Mostly because I had to stand up for my health. I knew something was off and I went to several different doctors before finding one who was willing to listen and run additional testing. I’ll explain below.
