My (10 Minutes) With Miley

One of the best aspects of this job is getting to interview people in the spotlight about what their definition of "beauty" is. The topics of hair, makeup and skin care are, by definition, superficial. But I relish when I get to ask someone about the best beauty advice they ever received, what they'd tell their adolescent selves, and play some fun games, too. (Because, hey, why not get some tips or tricks out of it?)

Miley Cyrus is a pop culture phenom, and meeting her in person was a lovely experience. She was in great spirits, had a down-to-earth demeanor — talking to her was like talking to one of my friends from elementary school. She wasn't afraid to speak her mind, and I appreciate the genuine answers she gave me.

Here are two of the interviews! We broke them into four separate videos. (The other two will be up soon!)

Career Advice on Recycle Novelty





When Whitney emailed me and asked to contribute to her blog series, #IMaGIRLBOSS, I was totally flattered. 

Check out her post! I get frequent emails asking how I got my start and what I did to get my current job, and I think this will help give you some perspective.

Your Fitness Crisis is Resolved: Enter ClassPass

Upon my return to Austin, Texas for the holidays, my best friend let me in on her new fitness secret: ClassPass.

ClassPass

It's a booking app, and for $99 a month, you get to attend every class that offer at least three times. I know $99 is a hefty price to pay to get in shape, but if you're like me, I was thrilled at the thought of getting in on ClassPass because:

1. I love classes because I tend to slack without someone motivating me (and I end up plateauing)
2. $99 is nothing, considering most of the classes offered are at least $20 a pop for a single session -  it pays for itself in just four classes. 
3. I like to switch things up! I get bored.

I looked into ClassPass and duh, it was available in LA. So I signed up and was put on a wait list, which didn't last long — I was approved about two days later and was able to start booking classes. 

Right now, I'm signed up for five classes, each one different: reformer pilates, Crossfit, boot camp, Flywheel (cycling), and Pure Barre. There are even some classes I didn't know existed, like Training Mate, an Australian-inspired in WeHo that trains your like a rugby player, plus fan favorites like Pop Physique, Bar Method, Barry's Bootcamp. Other offerings include yoga, zumba, burlesque, boxing, surfing and more. 

You book based on location and the time you want to work out, and ClassPass creates a list of all the workouts available to you. 

And because they will charge you $20 for each missed class, you're really motivated to get moving and attend! I'm going to keep everyone posted on my progress. 



If you need to put your membership on hold, it's only $19 a month. Not too shabby.

Here's a complete list of cities ClassPass is available in. Just request an invite and wait for an opening!
