LIVING SEXY IS... On The Road!!!

Friends and lovely people,

I'm beyond ecstatic to announce I've decided to take the Living Sexy Is series ON THE ROAD. Why? Well, why not?! There are so many women and people I'm dying to connect with to feature on the blog, and as cosmopolitan and diverse as New York City is, I just can't resist the urge to make this a national thing (international coming soon, too!).

Can you feel my excitement? Perhaps it's a mix of caffeine and overall buzz but WOOHOO!

Here are some details of what's to come:

  • Features of badass people from all across the United States, including some of my favorite yogis and influencers! (See below who's next!!!)

  • "Boudoir Days" hosted by featured guests

So why am I telling you all this? Well, because I'd love to come to YOUR city, of course!

If you're interested in hosting a special "boudoir day" for your tribe of women, here is some information about what it entails:

As a hostess, you'd receive:

  • Free photoshoot - lifestyle, boudoir, or a mix of both!

  • Full gallery of edited, professional images for your use across sites and social media (with proper photographer credit)

This is such a fun opportunity to bring your friends together and celebrate being beautiful, strong individuals. Whether you're in a relationship or not, whether you've embraced your body or not, whether you're reaching a life milestone or not, there is no better time than right now to be thankful for who you are and the life you have. There are so many elements in our life that we forget to celebrate, and the present moment is often one of them.

This opportunity is for you, your best friend, your sister and mother, your bridesmaids and fellow colleagues - it's truly for everyone you want to connect with on an intimate level and share an opportunity to feel loved. 

First stop: Los Angeles to feature Liz arch!

After years of following her journey and story, I reached out to a personal inspiration of mine: Liz Arch - a stunning woman who inspires thousands of people every day through yoga and honesty - and invited her to be featured on my blog. To my absolute surprise, she not only answered, but was thrilled to be a part of this!!! Liz is the pure definition of a badass. I can't even begin to explain how freaking excited I am to photograph, interview and feature her on my next trip to LA.

Tricks to Staying Sexy While Sweaty

While teaching yoga class this morning, I guided my students through a couple cycles of Sun Salutations to warm up their bodies in preparation for practice. As soon as I said "warm up," though, I realized I was already sweating, just from walking TWO BLOCKS from my place to the studio.

HELLO NEW YORK SUMMER, WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME?

If you're anything like me, you sweat just by saying the word "sweat," so I decided to kindly put a list together on how to cope with this summertime sweatiness - in a sexy way.

1. Water mist: I rather be wet from fresh water coming out of a delicate mister than from my pores continuously releasing beads of sweat. I carry Avene's with me at all times during the day - it's especially helpful when standing on the subway platform waiting for the next train. HOTTEST MINUTES OF MY DAY.

2. Hand-held fan: they're highly portable and highly chic. It's one of my favorite feminine elements during the hotter months. All mine are from different European cities, but here's an inexpensive option and another that's adorable but on the pricey side.

3.  Sweating on purpose: if you're going to sweat, might as well do it right and get a workout in! My friend Kat and I are masters of ignoring the world around us as we flow through yoga sequences at the park - or just about anywhere. Plus, it's a win-win for everyone - you get to be comfy in yoga pants AND everyone around you will appreciate that you're IN yoga pants.

4. Put that hair up, girl! Have you ever a little hot and then all of a sudden it feels like someone left a massive oven door open to the WORLD? In these instances, all I can do is avoid as much contact with ANYTHING and EVERYTHING as possible, including where my hair touches my upper back. Here are some hairdos (created by my friend Anna-Alexia Basile!) that do the trick while making it seem like you're not burning up and wishing a huge bucket of ice water magically fell from the sky.

5. Skirts (and baby powder): yet another win-win. Skirts and dresses are some of the most feminine outfit options you have in the summer. They allow you to stay fresh +cool up there  all while showing off your beautiful legs. I mention the baby powder because I happen to NOT have a #ThighGap, so the best remedy to avoid chaffing is a little baby powder. Works like a charm. Lastly, the other benefit of wearing skirts and dresses is you don't have to risk ripping your pants while doing yoga on the street - yes, I tend to strike a yoga pose just about anywhere. Below you'll see the very exact moment I ripped my pants in Argentina. You're welcome.

I have tons more summer secrets to keep me semi-sane, but I didn't want to make this THE LONGEST POST EVER. Please share some of YOUR summer secrets because I'm all ears! 

Stay sexy, my loves.
