Sweat It Out 2018. How I Found My Soul at SoulCycle San Francisco

2018 is here! We are 8 days in and today I decided to really kick off my New Year (a little late). What does that mean for me? Step number one: NO food delivery. No caviar, no GrubHub, no NOTHING. Everything that enters my mouth will be made by me at home or I will WALK to get takeout. I know, very 2008 but the delivery chaos of 2017 in my life HAS TO STOP.


Next up is my workout routine. Did I work out in 2017?

Yep.

Did I work out consistently in 2017? Hell no! 


In 2017 I started attending SoulCycle classes around the Bay Area (insert an eye roll). I know every white girl in the marina swears by SoulCycle San Francisco and honestly at first I HATED IT. I felt so silly dancing on a bicycle to the beat and was honestly VERY intimidated by the front row ladies with their rock hard abs and coordinating workout sets.


Flash forward to today – after almost six months of classes, I have to say that I found my Soul at Soul Cycle San Francisco. It is my favorite way to start my day and I honestly feel 100% better both physically and mentally after class. SoulCycle has also become very personal for me. While I normally enjoy group fitness classes with my friends, this is the one point in my day where I enjoy being alone and zoning out. I leave all of my stress (and electronic devices) in my locker and spend 45 mins focusing on me…not a bad way to kick off 2018, right?


6 Month Update: We are six months into 2018 and boy have things changed over here. At the beginning of April, I tore my MCL skiing in Lake Tahoe and pretty much all physical activity for me came to a hard stop. Knee injuries are no joke and my failure to follow doctor’s orders led me to two weeks of bedrest and flat shoes for spring. Apparently prancing around San Francisco in heels with a torn MCL is a no-no! Now we are halfway through June and I am finally back on the bike and ready to get my mind and booty back into shape!

Now that I’m back on the bike and ready to scream cry to Madonna SoulCycle has launched SoulActivate. SoulActivate is a 45-minute high-intensity interval and strength training class on the bike. Think heart rate variation, timed interval pushes and an extra weight series with heavier weights. I’ve done it once – and it literally destroyed me…in a good way!

Where exactly did I find my soul?


Favorite SoulCycle Studios and Instructors:

Northern California

Union St. – Luigi – Take his 60-minute SoulSurvivor class and I guarantee that you will leave with a smile on your face (mixed with sweat) and NO idea how 60-minutes of hardcore spin flew by. Luigi is by far my favorite SoulCycle San Francisco instructor and I’m not the only one! If you are interested in booking his class make sure you book it in advance as his classes tend to sell out.

San Mateo – Devin S – I met Devin at the new Outdoor Voices store in San Francisco. She was a gem at the store and the most passionate and motivating instructor in the studio. She is a true badass and worth the drive from San Francisco to San Mateo. Not into the drive down south? You can catch her a couple of times a week at SoulCycle San Francisco too!


Southern California

Santa Monica – Lindsey S – Did I cry during her 90-minute Turkey Burn class on Thanksgiving? Hard YES. Why? Because she is a fu*king rock star. I have never had an instructor in any fitness class push me spiritually and physically the way Lindsey does. If you are down in LA a visit to Lindsey at the Santa Monica studio is a MUST. Can’t make it down to LA? Check out her podcast here.

And if you are in San Francisco this weekend the ladies of the top health podcast on iTunes are bringing their show to San Francisco for a special two-day event June 23-24. Sign up for Lindsey’s Saturday 2pm ride on Union here and  a conversation with the girls and Millana Snow  takes place on Sunday. The event will begin with a grounding meditation and a healing session from Snow. Tickets for the event are $30.

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale San Francisco Style

It’s here! It’s here! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here!

And unless you’ve been living under a rock and far far away from social media…

You are well aware of the fact that every fashion blogger will be letting you know that you have until August 5th to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. Yes, this sale happens every year and in my opinion, the sale just keeps on getting better. So with that in mind, I decided to break down the best pieces and styling suggestions from the sale for all my San Franciscans.


When can you shop?

Early Access (with a Nordstrom card): July 12-July 18

Public Event: July 20-August 5

Where to shop in San Francisco?

Nordstrom San Francisco Centre

865 Market Street, San Francisco, CA 94103

Mon-Sat: 10am-8:30pm
Sun: 11am-7pm

Nordstrom Stonestown Galleria

285 Winston Drive, San Francisco, CA 94132

Mon-Sat: 10am-9pm
Sun: 11am-7pm


The best way to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale San Francisco style:

  • Take advantage of the buy now and pick up in store feature. It is a major lifesaver and honestly the only way I ever shop at Nordstrom. Find it, Love it, Get it – FAST!
  • Stock up on what we really need in San Francisco. The Anniversary sale is the best time of the year to stock up on cardigan sweaters, jeans, basic layering tanks, tees, and boots – AKA the basic San Francisco wardrobe.
  • Shopping for you man? If he lives in the Marina – hook him up with all The North Face and Patagonia!
  • Looking to drive and park? Stonestown is your only option in the city. Looking to really go for a drive? My two favorite spots to shop outside of the city are Corte Madera and Palo Alto.

Beauty: The BKR Paris Water Balm Joins The BKR Family

San Francisco lifestyle blogger KatWalkSF shares her BKR spiked glass water bottle and BKR Paris water balm.

“Drinking water is the most important part of your beauty regimen,” BKR founders Tal Winter and Kate Cutler.

I had a chance to sit down with the duo (best friends since law school) at their San Francisco headquarters last week to learn all about BKR and their entry into the beauty industry with the BKR Paris Water Balm. The BKR founders set out to create a beautiful alternative to plastic bottles that would make staying hydrated more enjoyable. The result: sleek, celeb-favorite glass bottles wrapped in soft silicone in a rainbow of runway-inspired hues – I went with the Spiked Tutu 16 oz style.

I’ve always known it was important to drink water throughout the day, but there was one soundbite from my conversation with the founders of BKR that really stood out for me. Tal shared that she used to always keep a case of plastic bottled water in the trunk of her car. This sounded normal to me, in fact, I had a case of Trader Joe’s water in my trunk at that very moment. But once she started breaking down just how disgusting it was to have a case of water in plastic in your hot trunk all day I was sold on actually using the case of reusable water bottles I have collecting dust underneath my kitchen sink. We all have reusable water bottles and bags scattered around our homes and cars, right? But do you actually use them? My mother is the only person I know who uses her reusable bags EVERY time she goes to the store!

Ok! So now we’ve established that these water bottles are stunning and that the case of plastic water bottles in my drunk HAD to go. But what about the beauty element? Where are we going with this?

Well, just when you thought you’ve seen it all the ladies of BKR blew my mind when they introduced me BKRto the BKR Paris Water Balm. What is it? It is an ultra-hydrating glossy lip treatment made from a proprietary complex of rose, algae, and essential biolipids with a natural French rose scent – AKA a bomb ass lip gloss that attaches to your BKR bottle. It is vegan, cruelty-free, hypoallergenic, noncomedogenic, and formulated without gluten. BKR also created an innovative cap designed to connect the Water Balm to the BKR bottle. The balm itself is easily removable, so you can slip it into a bag whenever your BKR isn’t with you – which is never, but a nice option.

KatWalkSF and Two Peas in a Prada in the Outdoor Voices Flamingo 7/8 Springs Legging with their BKR water bottle and BKR Paris Water Balm.

Yes, I’ve managed to tote my BKR Paris Water Balm + Bottle all around town. From SoulCylce to running errands in my hood to lounging around the Marin Country Mart with Ashley (in matching Outdoor Voices looks) – the BKR bottle has proven to be a worthy investment for my lifestyle and it seriously upped my beauty regime.

The Nordstrom Lace Cover-Up You Need Until You Find Your Summer Body

KatWalkSF poolside at the Meritage Resort and Spa Napa in a Nordstrom Lace Cover-up

Guys, I’m just gonna be REAL honest here. My summer body is NOT here. I’m looking for it this week and I am hell-bent on finding it before I go to LA at the beginning of June – insert my crash diet. But let’s just be real here, I will most likely not find my summer body before June and it is highly likely that this Nordstrom lace cover-up will be in my suitcase for LA.

My lack of summer body hit me just as we crossed the Golden Gate bridge on the way Napa a couple of weeks ago. I made Ashely pull off the freeway and make an emergency pit stop at the oh-so-fabulous Nordstrom Corte Madera because nobody wants to see my winter body at the pool. We ran upstairs to the swim department and this pretty lace cover-up was calling my name. The plunging necklines in the front and back give this boho dress the perfect amount of conceal and reveal until you find your summer body like me. The sleeves hid my arms and the side slits show just the right amount of leg. I felt fabulous at the pool in this bad boy and EVERYONE needs these Hermes dupe sandals (I stole them from Ash).
