Everything is Awesome Friday
Happy Awesome Friday, everyone! I hope you all had a fantastic week. This past weekend I went to a Wine Tasting Fundraiser for my friend Heather who is running her first 50K this April with Team in Training – Iron Team. At her fundraiser I was introduced to the “Everything is Awesome” song from the Lego Movie. I don’t have kids so it’s probably why I don’t know about this song. But it really is awesome and fun. And the video is super cute, too. Take 3 minutes and watch it. I guarantee you’ll smile:
Earlier this week I had the awesome opportunity to attend a special event with Murad and Fitness Magazine here in LA. They hosted a yoga class followed by panels on health and nutrition by Dr. Howard Murad himself. It was such an honor to hear him speak about the importance of health and nutrition and how it impacts your skin. Everything is related and connected in your body, and there are so few doctors out there that connect the dots – especially when it comes to nutrition. Dr. Murad talked about what types of foods are best for your skin and the importance of not only drinking water, but eating foods with natural water content like watermelon, cucumber, and other fruits and vegetables. This keeps your cells hydrated and prevents damage. Good stuff to know – especially since I am a 30-something and aging 🙂 I got the chance to catch up with Chris from What I Run Into and Tiffany from Running Hutch. And I finally got to meet Melissa from The ValentineRD which was really great. It’s so crazy how I connect with a lot of people online through this site and then when I meet them I feel like I already know them. LOVE that!
I would like to congratulate Frank Menezes for winning the HumanX Gear giveaway. I’ve got another really exciting giveaway coming up in the next couple days here so stay tuned.
Is anyone heading out to Natural Products Expo West next weekend? I am part of a team of 12 bloggers on the Editorial board and I’m really looking forward to it. If you’ll be there, let’s meet up!
