Free Yourself Fall

Good Morning Pound Posse!   Welcome to September and the beginning of our favorite season; FALL. It’s interesting that Fall has that name, because we do find ourselves “falling” into old habits and sinking into the “get us to the finish line”, aka end of the holiday season, state of mind. So in an attempt to stay mindful this Fall, we’ve created a new concept: Free Yourself FALL. This month we’re asking you (and ourselves) to adjust your “freakout its already Fall?!” mindset to “free yourself fall”. We’ll focus on bad habits that are often created in the back to school, back to work rush and help you create solutions – because that’s what we’reread more READ MORE

3-Ingredient Banana Ice Cream

We all remember it: that feeling you got when you heard the ice cream truck’s jingle as it turned the corner onto your street when you were young. You felt the immediate ping of excitement (and panic) as you’d JET inside your house to grab 2 quarters out of your piggy bank so you could get a popsicle with the rest of the neighborhood. Ahhh, those were the days….   Although you might be playing a different role in the scenario now, that ice cream jingle still holds the same temptation and nostalgia that is does every summer — but we know, now, that those tasty treats pack a mean punch! Those store bought iceread more READ MORE

Office OOTD

Howdy POUND Posse!   Whether you work in a big, corporate office or in a small casual office (like ours!), it’s important to feel comfortable and confident in your clothes! As we approach the end of the summer, we’re LOVING wearing long, flowy skirts. They are so comfy, feminine and can be dressed up to look pretty snazzy! Best of all, long skirts can be paired with pretty much ANY top.   For a trendier look, pair your long black skirt with a collared crop top, a hat, and some heeled boots! Working from your home office? Throw on a v-neck and a long necklace with your skirt! We LOVE accessorizing and all things jewelry.read more READ MORE

Benefits of Coconut Oil

What up POUND POSSE!?   We try to stay away from food trends but this is one we can get behind: Coconut Oil! We’ve been using this stuff for YEARS — and it’s safe to say that we’re pretty obsessed with the REAL benefits that this simple oil provides. We get our dose (or TWO) of this “super-oil” (yes, they call it that) EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.   You’ve gotta hop on board the nutty – ahem – COCO-nutty bandwagon with us right now, Posse!   Including a spoonful of extra virgin coconut oil in your daily diet increases your energy expenditure. Rather than being immediately STORED, it remains readily available for your body to BURN.read more READ MORE

Gluten-Free Sweet Potato + Rosemary Waffles

Good Morning, POUND Posse!   Nothing – we repeat – NOTHING is better than brunch. It’s a magical time in the mid-morning when you meet up with your close friends and partake in this trendy hybrid meal at some super cool hotspot that not only offers an entire plethora of breakfast items to choose from, but also lunch items as well. Win-win? Yes.   Glancing at the menu, however, reveals that quintessential brunch goodies like pancakes, waffles, sandwiches, and breakfast potatoes do not quite meet the healthy balance we try to live by when making daily food choices. While they satisfy your sweet-lovin’ taste buds, they are packed with refined flours, starches, and cooked inread more READ MORE

Featured Kabobs!

The POUND Girls’ Rules of Summer: 1) You’ve gotta take care of your skin. 2) You’ve gotta grill somethin’.   Yes, we’ve narrowed it down to two rules — we’re simple like that — and today, we’re zooming in on the latter. Prepare to get hot n’ heavy on the GRILL.   Let’s get Kebabby with it, yo!     Not everyone is a natural-born BBQ-er, which is why we are avid supporters of the skewer AKA “the kebab”. Skewers give BBQ novices the confidence to give grilling a go — not to mention they’re just a lot more fun! Cutting your meat and vegetables into manageable, marinatable chunks will help them soak and cookread more READ MORE

TPG Beach Buff Body Scrub2

If you joined us earlier in the week, you’ve already got the secret to beachy hair for DAYS thanks to our Poundin’ Waves Ocean Potion DIY hair mist. Now, it’s time to re-capture soft, smooth, ocean-kissed skin!   Exfoliation, beach-style, happens like this: You wade into the ocean and the power of the water sand-blasts your legs, massaging your calves while you dig your feet into the porous, warm sand. You see dolphins jumping, seagulls squawking, and STOP THE MUSIC! There’s a cute surfer boy, too! We must say, hittin’ the beach is quite an easy (and enjoyable) way to get silky skin. And, sand + salt water inspired exfoliation 2-3 times a week isread more READ MORE

Nectarine Cobbler Tweak

My, oh, my… do we love pie!   Growing up in Arizona and Upstate New York, we both ate our share of all kinds of homemade pies crafted from the most delicious, local, flavorful ingredients. Apple, rhubarb, cherry, key lime, and even cactus fruit – we tried them all!! It’s safe to say that when we were that age, about half the pie would end up in our bellies… and the other half, on our faces and clothes. (Ooopsie!) We may or may not have grown out of that   As we finally grew into adults, our love of pies, cobblers and crisps remained, but our awareness of the nasty junk that’s in most piesread more READ MORE
