One look on Instagram and you'll see hundreds of pretty photos of insanely fit people in impossible positions and think to yourself "Yoga? I can't do that." Don't let Instagram fool you. On a daily basis, yoga isn't this serene, perfect routine. It's a lot of hard work and a lot of sweat, and but it's incredibly rewarding and it's not just for the impossibly fit, beautiful people. Yoga is for everyone, and it's about finding the practice that works best for you.
Even though the Bay Area has pretty mild weather compared to the blizzard of a winter on the East Coast, the colder air can still dry out my skin.

For those of you who feel my pain (or just want to check out some awesome products), here are my current skincare favorites!

Now that Thanksgiving is over, full focus is on the holiday season ahead. Christmas music is played on the radios, neighborhoods are being lit up, and shops are starting to bustle with the holiday rush.

Thanksgiving is only one week away, and instead of scrambling last-minute to grab a bottle of wine on your way to the in-law's house, pick up one of these bottles of delicious local wine to impress the wine lovers in your family.
