What I'm Loving Wednesday!

Time for another edition of What I'm Loving Wednesday with !

First off...I'm loving that next week Mr. Allan and I are going on a spur of the moment getaway. A few weeks ago we were complaining about how we never got around to planning a vacation, how it was too late to plan some type of big vacation and how it's miserable and cold in New England. So, we decided to jet to Sedona, Arizona for a quick 4 days. It's winter there as well, but I'll take there 60 degree temps over our 20 degree temps. I'm excited for some hiking and relaxing and checking out a new area! come the Allans!

I'm also loving/borderline obsessed with the new Urban Decay Palette...Naked 2! I loved the original palette..loved loved loved it..and maybe I didn't really need a whole second palette of eyeshadow, but I got it in the mail last week and have yet to go a day without using it!
One of my New Year's resolutions was to practice more yoga. I love to run, take kickboxing and step classes and I'm starting to feel some wear and tear on my knees and ankles from these high impact exercises that I pound my body with. So, I decided to take a step back from these types of workouts and replace them with just as challenging, yet gentler, exercises. I've fallen in love with Heated Prana Flow Yoga. The heat gets me sweating and the Prana Flow classes keep me moving and I definitely feel the burn! One problem with taking lots of heated yoga yoga mat needs a little refreshing! I grabbed this mat spray and it's working wonders for my poor yoga mat that's used multiple times a week...I have Manduka's Energizing Wheat Grass has great prices for it!
After a hearty workout...I like to reward myself..I can afford to eat a little something I normally wouldn't since I took the time to workout and burn some calories. One snack I've been loving...Trader Joe's 100 calorie dark chocolate bars...

I'm also loving that the New England Patriots are in the Superbowl! Can't wait for Superbowl Sunday! I love the parties, getting together with friends and it's all so much more fun when your team is in it!

Hope you have a great rest of your week!


  1. Woohoo! Can't wait to watch the Patriots beat the Giants. ;)

  2. 100 calorie chocolate bars from TJ?!?! I am definitely putting that on my list for next time I go there. haha

    I also believe in treating yourself after a good workout. Got to reward yourself somehow, right? Mine treat has been Girl Scout cookies though...haha

  3. Um, that place looks like a little bit of heaven!!!

  4. Watch those knees...getting a new one is no picnic!!

  5. I am SO excited about the Pats being the Superbowl! That is probably my favorite Sunday of the year haha!
