Sunset Yoga on the Charles

Sometimes, you just need something to break up the work week. This summer, the Esplanade Association offered free sunset yoga sessions along the Charles River. When I hear the words free, sunset, and yoga in one sentence, you can guarantee I'll sign up!

I went from work chic to work out clothes. Pictured above, my day began with a simple white dress from H&M, with a floral statement necklace from Forever 21 and white wedges from Wet Seal.

After work, I quickly changed into my favorite Bebe Sport yoga pants, grabbed my new Target yoga mat (obsessed) and hit the Charles for some sunset yoga! 

The view of the Charles was amazing and inspirational as the sun set behind the trees and sailboats. There were 50-100 people who showed up to the class, and the instructor was prepared with a microphone. The class was a perfect combination of rigor and relaxation - my kind of yoga. 

I'm so glad I live in a city like Boston that offers fun and healthy events to break up the week!

How to Style Gold and Red for the Office, & Lunch at Zo for Gyros!

Waiting for the T before work, I was distracted by my new ridiculously comfy Payless sandals and jewelry. Bracelets are from Forever 21, horseshoe ring is from Lace & Bobbles on Newbury Street (my favorite)!

Office selfie! The great thing about working in Boston is the amazing lunch selection. I'm still trying to go out and try all the wonderful restaurants in the area. I'm also trying to play with my work outfits, mixing and matching different themes. This outfit was red and gold themed! 

I was also really excited to wear my newest H&M statement necklace, comfy red office top, and black pencil skirt from Old Navy.

After hearing great things about it, we decided to try Zo for a workday lunch. Zo is only open Monday through Friday from 11-3. They're known for their gyros and affordable lunch menu, so naturally we had to give them a try.

I ordered the Chicken Gyro. It was so fresh and absolutely delicious!

Steak Gyro - Yum!

Dolma is rice wrapped in grape leaves, and coupled with a fresh lemon slice they are probably some of the most refreshing and energizing snacks you'll ever have! 

The fresh ingredients and affordable menu will definitely keep us going back to Zo.

Organic, Sustainable Nopalito Mexican Restaurant in San Francisco

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

When I came home to visit San Francisco, I knew I wanted to get some good Mexican food. Naturally we went to Nopalito, an organic and sustainable Mexican restaurant in the Inner Sunset.

These Seasonal Sangrias were deliciously dangerous: White Wine, Strawberry Liqueur, Vida Mezcal, and lemon. They tasted so good and hit you out of nowhere! All the more reason to chow down when your food arrives.

I ordered the Enchiladas de Mole con Pollo (chicken), which came complete with sauce of chiles, chocolate, nuts, chicken, tortillas, onions, queso fresco, and refried pinquito beans.

Quesadilla con Flor de Calabaza: Corn tortilla, squash blossoms, summer squash, onions, serranos, jack cheese, queso fresco, and salsa de tomatillo y chile piquin.

Carnitas: Braised pork, orange, bay leaf, milk, cinnamon, beer, cabbage salad, pickled jalapeƱos, and salsa de tomatillo. Served with three fresh tortillas.

Absolutely loved our colorful check and complimentary dessert bites!
