My Newest Obsession

I’ve been zipping all over the globe lately, loving and living life.

I just got back from a week and a half stint in Southern Europe.  It was simply incredible.

Traveling definitely has its perks.  Airport food does not.

I’ve seen some of the most amazing sunsets from places I’ve only read about in books.

I’ve met some of the most incredible people.

I’ve done new exciting things I could have never dreamed of.

I’ve also eaten more awful airport food than I ever care to remember.  What is it about airports that attracts such incredibly bad food choices?

It’s been getting a little more difficult to button my pants these days.  A few too many fast food burgers on the run were catching up to me.  My Air Yeezys are still rockin’ it, of course, but I’ve got to keep all of me looking good.

Just this past weekend, my friend recommended a meal replacement shake to me called IdealShape.  I’ve never been a huge fan of any skinny shake myself, so I was hesitant to give it a try.  They’re just not my style.

He finally mixed one up for me, and I hesitantly took a sip.

I was blown away.  Seriously.

Every preconceived notion and ill thought about skinny shakes in my head was banished.

The chocolate flavor is to die for.  And it satisfied my hunger.  Never would have guessed it.

So now while I’m jet-setting all over the globe, I will be taking my skinny shake with me.

So long, gross airport food.  IdealShape is a great travel companion.

And my pants are fitting better than ever now too.

Don’t get me wrong, my Air Yeezy’s are still precious to me and will always be number one in my book.

IdealShape is just becoming my number two.

It starts with the shoes, people – but it’s all about who’s filling them.  And I fully intend to be the best me I can possibly be.




The Three Things I Never Travel Without

I’ve found that really living and loving life comes with a lot of suitcase packing. There’s so much of the world to see and experience. To keep things simple, I keep a set of my must-haves already packed and ready to hit the road. Here’s a sneak peek inside my travel bag:


1. My Air Yeezy 2’s

Did you really think I could leave these behind? The catalyst for the change in my life perspective? No way! And yes, I have a travel pair. It’s so cool to me to know that there’s part of the earth from all over the world on the soles of these shoes. It makes them even more inspiring to me.

2. My Sleep Aids

I don’t go anywhere without a bottle of Melatonin and my earplugs. It’s also kind of embarrassing, but I would never leave my anti snoring device called Good Morning Snore Solution behind. No snoring equals a much better night’s sleep, which means I have a much better time exploring the world come sunrise.

3. Zip top baggies

You can use these for everything imaginable. From collecting sand and shells for souvenirs to protecting my electronics and valuables, I’ve used these for more than you can imagine. They don’t take up much space, but it’s certainly something I’d never leave home without!


Hopefully this short list will help you be a world adventurer as well, and live life to the fullest with less stress!
