Good Clean Energy!

SweatTheStyle_runa_teaKeeping your energy up during the day can sometimes be a challenge. While studies show exercise is a great way to fight fatigue and gain energy sometimes we need a quick fix. Runa tea to the rescue! Runa was created using a leaf called Guayusa, which is an Amazonian super-leaf naturally packed with caffeine, polyphenols, and 15 essential amino acids which provides clean, focused energy. With the same caffeine content as coffee, and double the antioxidants as green tea, Runa tea contains no tannins and therefore lacks the bitter taste sometimes associated with green and black teas. Instead, it tastes smooth and naturally sweet.

Runa Tea is a great way to start your morning or to use as an afternoon pick me up! Compounds in Guayusa give you sustained and focused energy without using harsh chemicals that cause you to burn out later. Runa Tea is a great clean and organic way to add some pep to your step.

SweatTheStyle_JessicaWebb

I think I speak for all of us when I say there is nothing worse than wearing foundation that is too heavy, especially in the summer. Durable, breathable, and smooth are key words when it comes to choosing the best foundation.

Milk Studios Sunshine Skin Tint is a fresh take on liquid foundation. This featherweight foundation makes it easy to achieve a flawless complexion while protecting your skin with SPF30. Packed with ingredients ranging from avocado to grapeseed oil, this Skin Tint is perfect for target coverage and overall skin tone. Not only is this product vegan but it’s also preservative-free; something you could previously only get in powder foundations.

This makes it super easy to throw in your gym bag without having to worry about compacts and brushes. The less make-up to carry the better!

Queen Of The Court

AdrianneHo_TennisTraining_IG-3 AdrianneHo_TennisTraining_IG-7AdrianneHo_TennisTraining_IG-8With the U.S. Open starting next week in NYC, more and more people are hitting the courts to play tennis. Whether you’re a novice or have been playing for years the benefits of the sport are endless. As someone who has started playing only in the past few years I can personally say that the sport has improved my level of fitness. The quick aerobic movements I do while playing  burns calories and keeps my heart rate up. In addition to cardiovascular health, the game also provides strength training for your legs, arms and upper body while swinging the racket tones the core… talk about a full body workout!

I like to start a session by warming up with a stretch and light jog. Once my body is warmed up I get a feel for the ball by playing half court and then move back to the baseline to work my forehand and backhand. It’s a good idea to have a focused strategy to your workout. Repetition of good form is key to the sport. No matter your level, keep at it and most of all have fun!

Italian Summer Bucatini Pasta

SweatTheStyle_CattyBoomBattyItalian Summer Bucatini Pasta-2A light vegetarian pasta is the perfect way to end a long summer day. We turned to Chef Catty Boom Batty to create a seasonal summer dish that is as nutrient rich as it is tasty. After visiting the local farmers market and picking up fresh bucatini pasta from McCall’s she created this Italian Summer Bucatini Pasta. Zucchini adds a soft crunch to the pasta while the combination of onions, tomatoes, capers, garlic, and basil naturally creates a light, classic Italian flavored juicy sauce. With plenty of healthy veggies that offset the fresh pasta, you will feel happy and satisfied from just one plate.

When using fresh organic ingredients with simple cooking methods you’ll see that the foods we often consider “fattening” or “unhealthy” are actually the opposite. You just need to get back to the basics of clean, organic, natural, food.

Korres Greek Yoghurt Nourishing Primer

AdrianneHo_SuzieSupreme_-7 It’s what you apply under your makeup that will keep you looking fresh faced all day long…
SweatTheStyle_Korres_GreekYogurtPrimerSkin priming is becoming more recognized as a major step to take before makeup application. Although the cleaning and toning process is important, it is just as important to prep your skin before putting on makeup. A few benefits of using a primer is that it seals your pores and acts as a natural shield for dust, water, and debris that might make your makeup wear off. It also reduces redness and won’t irritate your skin.

The Korres Greek Yoghurt Nourishing Primer is a perfect addition to your makeup routine! Protein from Greek yogurt, which contains two and a half times the protein of regular yogurt, helps to strength and hydrate the skin while creating a smooth canvas for makeup. The moisturizing nature of this primer also allows your foundation to be less likely to fade. This is a great way to ensure your makeup stays fresh whether you’re spending a day at the beach or at work.
