Yoga pose of the day

  Handstand is the yoga pose of the day! This pose is great for stretching out your abdominal muscles and gaining strength in your shoulders, arms, and core. Not to mention this inverted position increases dopamine receptors in your brain, which helps to relieve stress, tension, and increase your mood. So whether you practice this pose against a wall or out in the open, the important part is that you try!

Dirty Hoe…. No pun intended!

 I’m not shy to admit that I enjoy a great beer. This one was new to me, and at some point you must try it! While I was at one of my local pubs I asked for half of a Hoegaarden and half of Framboise. With one sip my taste buds went crazy! It’s light and airy from the Hoegaarden with sweet cherry flavors from the Framboise. I was hooked! Ask your local pub about this great beer choice!

Men’s fashion

 Spring is here and do you know what that means? It’s wedding season! With that said I’m here to give some great fashion tips for men when it comes to either dressing for a wedding, date night, or special event. In these photos pieced very well is an all black blazer with white detailing from Topman. Underneath is a black top from All-Saints. Whether it’s an all black outfit you are sporting or just a button down top, place it with some great black pants and you are good to go!      If you want more fashion looks or ideas follow my dearest friend on instagram @tramaynetirrell

Low calorie option at Starbucks

 If you love coffee but don’t want all the calories or fat that comes with a latte, then you’ll love what I’ve discovered. Not only is it 35 calories (depending on the size, may be less) it tastes great! In this picture I ordered a Venti Iced Caffe Americano with 3 pumps of sugar free vanilla and 3 packets of Stevia. Not only does the stevia have absolutely no calories, it makes it sweet. And with the sugar free vanilla flavoring you’re getting some more flavor to it without calories. This coffee is very strong so it’s not for the light hearted. Go ahead and give it a shot!

Spring fashion

 On this occasion I had a date night with some of my girlfriends for dinner and cocktails. I wanted to pair these destroyed white denim from Express with this black floral top. This top is so flattering, it tapers in at the waist and is held by elastics. I’ve gotten tons of compliments on this top. I paired it off with these black cork wedges from Target.

Universal week #5

 Finally I’ve saved the best for last. To wrap up this week up I’d like to end it with The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Hogsmeade. This area of the park amazes me every time I visit. From the castle to the little details in each of the stores is amazing. Inside the castle there’s a ride called, Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey. While you wait for this ride you get to walk through the castle. You’ll see almost every character that was in the movie. If you choose not to ride this ride, you still can walk through the castle. Just ask for a castle tour and the attendants will show you where to go.

Universal week #4

 If you come during the summer months, I suggest you visit the Toon Lagoon part of the park. This part has plenty of rides to get wet and cool off. One ride in particular is the Dudley Do-Right’s Ripsaw Falls. This ride is pack with tons of drops, turns, and splashes. Not only are the characters animated for your entertainment, but the last drop is at 75 ft and speeding in at 45 mph. After you have recovered from the drop beware, there are people readying with water guns waiting to aim at you!         Enjoy yourself and your lifestyle!

Universal week #3

 After you have rode a couple of rides, if you want somewhere to relax and have a cocktail, look no further. Backwater Bar is here to your rescue. This bar has handcrafted cocktails of your liking, an open bar, and many beers by the bottle or draft. You can enjoy your cocktail at the bar or ask for your drinks to go and you’ll be able to enjoy your refreshments while you walk around the park. Don’t forget happy hour is from 4-7pm daily!

Universal week #2

  If you are not into rides that go upside down, look no further because Doctor Doom’s Fear Fall is right up your alley. This is personally my favorite ride at IOA. Not only is the line inside to where you can escape the intense rays of Florida, but the ride itself is awesome. You begin by being strapped in with 3 other people, while you hover and listen to Doctor Doom talking, before you know it  you’re in the air at 185 ft high. At this focal point you are able to see the entire park. Once you get over the initial adrenaline rush, the view is breath taking.
