FindingFaith: Mecosta Book Gallery

Hello friends!

 I have finally returned from my travels! Good to be back...I wanted to share with you a place my parents took me to the day before I left. A magical little bookstore in Mecosta Michigan. It was like stepping into a movie. I almost expected to discover a secret hidden treasure amongst all those books (maybe I did!) I imagined opening the cover of one of those books and fairies flying out! Even the store owner reminded me of a kind and wise wizard.

I love to find interesting and beautiful books to alter, so I did pick up a few that I can't wait to turn into my own creation. Some were probably too valuable (and expensive) to change, but I managed to find some deals. 

Another magical book I found earlier on my trip to Florida that I want to mention that was fun was this book...check it out if you get a chance. Very cute and clever with beautiful artwork.
Until next time, I leave you with this...

Creatively yours,

Vegas to St. Louis: 1stPhorm Summer Smash Day 1

Hi friends! I am back trying to re vamp this here website yet again but until then I wanted to share my #SummerSmash Experience now that I have more vlogs up on my Youtube Channel! Day 1 to St Louis was awesome! We ended up staying at the HOST hotel which was great and rented a car for pretty cheap! We got into town around 3am so it made it hard to wake up and go to this workout but I was up and ready to go in my PIBA Hulk Leggings! haha PS. I have a discount code if you guys wanna get these and many more! SHANA10%OFF 

FitCity was the host gym for the #phamily workout and I was so nervous for some reason...I hadn't yet met a lot of the 1stphorm team actually let me rephrase that I had never met ANY of the 1stphorm team so I was like a small child who was asked to perform and well basically giggled...haha it was slightly my vlog to witness the shenanigans!

I feel as though we are always learning and it is so important to continue to do so! Thank you Aaron! You kicked some butt at that workout and always!! xoxo

After the workout we went to a small coffee house and had an incredible breakfast it felt good to order whatever I wanted and just enjoy the hubby's company!  NO MACRO COUNTING here! haha

FindingFaith: At home by the ocean

Greetings from Florida! I'm going to keep it short and simple and just share a few pics from my trip so far. More to come next week! May I just say, I really am most at home by the ocean. It's so healing! Here's Fort Myers beach with a rainbow, sunset and moon all in the same day!

 I also got to visit Matlacha, a cute little artsy town, love the colorful buildings! And what would tropical paradise be without a tropical cocktail?!

Until next time!

Creatively yours,
