Things I’m Loving: December

December 21, 2015

Happy Christmas Week everybody!! Yep. I’m making that the thing.

I am seriously counting down the days/hours/minutes until Christmas. I can’t wait to spend some time with my family and enjoy a little winter vacation time. This is the first year in a while that I have really gotten in the Christmas spirit, and it feels wonderful.

My family and I are heading out of town on Christmas Day, so we will be celebrating at home on Christmas Eve. I can’t wait to eat some good food, give everyone their gifts, and (hopefully) watch the Grinch or Elf. Or both.

In the meantime, I wanted to continue my “Things I’m Loving” series and share with you a few things that have been bringing me joy this month. Please let me know what you’ve been loving this month in the comments section!

Pure Barre Platform

If you don’t know much about Pure Barre, then you might not be familiar with their new class offering. Pure Barre has launched a new class offering called Pure Barre Platform. Platform is a fast-paced cardio class that focuses on high intensity intervals to get your heart rate high. My studio started offering these classes earlier in December and I’ve been able to make it into two (they’re all waitlisted!). It’s fun, upbeat, sweaty, and intense in the best kind of way. I can’t wait until more start popping up on the schedule so I can incorporate them into my weekly workout routine.

Beyond Yoga Leggings

I’m obsessed with Beyond Yoga leggings. They’re the softest leggings on the market (in my opinion) and are perfect for barre, yoga, running errands, or lounging around. I ordered these salt and pepper leggings on Black Friday and have been wearing them all month long. They’re definitely my new favorite pair.

Gift Giving

Tis the season for gifting and I love it! Giving gifts brings me so much joy, and I absolutely can’t wait for my loved ones to open their presents later this week. 🙂

Serial Season Two

Serial was the first podcast I ever listened to, and I quickly fell in love with Sarah Koenig’s style of storytelling. Ever since I finished the first season, I have been anxiously awaiting the start of season two. The new season takes a look at the case of Bowe Bergdahl – a soldier who walked off his post in Afghanistan and was held hostage for five years. Season two surprise dropped two weeks ago and has been just as good as the first.

iPhone 6S

YA’LL. I finally upgraded my iPhone from a 5 to a 6S and holy moly – I’m in love. The screen and camera quality are so much better than my 5.

Introducing My Mom to Pure Barre

Another Pure Barre-related thing I’m loving. A new studio just opened up near my parents’ house, so I was more than thrilled when my mom texted me saying she signed up. I had the opportunity to take her first class with her over the weekend and it was so much fun. I can only hope she enjoys it as much as I have over the last 15 months.
