Can we be real today? My life is hectic on a good day…and it’s about to get even busier as the holiday season kicks into high gear this month! Between a busy day job, a bustling food blog, and a husband and two cats who need my attention? It can sometimes feel like there’s simply not enough hours in the day to get it all done. That’s when it’s time for me to unplug and re-center, even if it’s just for 30 blissful minutes. For me, that means putting on comfy clothes, listening to some soothing music, and enjoying an energizing snack like Stonyfield Oh My Yog! yogurt. For me, a short respite to do something just for me means I feel less stressed and can tend to the other priorities in my life much easier!
As part of the Stonyfield Clean Plate Club, I recently had the opportunity to try an item of clothing from prAna. Their clothes are comfy and cozy, and the cotton is so soft! If you’re an active person, prAna definitely has something that you will love to wear – including yoga tops and bottoms and other workout gear, casual tops and sweaters, and pants for both women and men. I recently received a cute black Candi top from prAna's organic cotton line. This comfy top features gorgeous burnout jersey knit on the arms and back, a slightly longer back hem, and a comfy relaxed fit. The other day, I slipped into this comfy top and a pair of black knit stretchy pants, put on Miles Davis' Kind of Blue, and treated myself to some Oh My Yog! yogurt.
Then, I enjoyed 30 minutes of time just for me between items on my to-do list. The yogurt is creamy and decadent, with three distinct layers: the top is rich cream, then you hit lightly sweet yogurt, and then the bottom layer is sweetly tart strawberries. I love to sprinkle a bit of granola on top of the container for some added crunch...and fun! A bit more about my gorgeous prAna shirt: I just love that it's casual enough to run errands on a busy weekend -- but it's still dressy enough to pair with dressy jeans, heels, and jewelry for an evening out. The cotton is SO soft...and because it doesn't wrinkle, it's also ideal for packing for a trip. As the picture below shows, Brandi comes in a range of fun colors. That's what you call a win-win, my friends!
