    Tea & Crumpets

    Tea Party? 

    Downton Abbey may be TV history now, but my obsession with all things Brit still lives on. While there are many reasons to be a fan of the BBC, I am not ashamed to admit that one of the reasons I listen is for the accents. (Well, okay, maybe a little ashamed.) Sometimes I add a “u” to favorite and color, just for fun. My fantasy bucket list includes a pub sing-along with Jude Law and a mug of Newscastle Beer sloshing to and fro.

    So with anglophilia like mine, it makes sense that my party plans for this year include tea and crumpets and dainty china cups. I am a huge fan of tea, but even so I don’t think my consumption comes close to what they down across the pond. While we in America are big on coffee, Brits drink over 60 billion cups of tea every year.  Tea is, in fact, the most consumed beverage worldwide, after water.

    The Future of Savvy Looks Like This...

    Mmm…I love the smell of coconut, says Robin as she hands off the jar to Erin.

    Nine women stood around a kitchen island laughing. Sharing. Venting frustrations.

    Sounds like a gals’ night out, for sure, only this one had a special twist.

    I'll Bring Popcorn. You Bring "Stink!"

    It’s been a long day.

    Starting with the first chirp of the robin, you slathered on your favorite baby-powder deodorant and headed for the gym. After kicking butt in boot camp, you hit the showers with your favorite apple scented shampoo and silky peach soap bar. Spritzing your favorite flirty body spray, you head out the door and to your car, feeling pumped and ready for the day. The tropical coconut emanating from the pine tree swinging from your rearview mirror as you drive reminds you of that beachfront condo you’ll be parked in front of soon. With the day dragging by 4pm, you attempt to boost your energy with the mountain fresh scent in your air freshener, the very scent you love in your laundry detergent.  Once home, you light your favorite seashore candles and shuffle through your emails.

    “You're Invited: Gals Night Out” reads the one from your best gal pal. 

    “We’re never gonna smell the same again.”

    It wasn’t until I sat in on a Savvy Board meeting that I truly understood the complex workings of this amazing organization and the scope of their efforts. I was immediately proud to be part of something so much larger than myself, and a company that I believed would truly change the world. I knew from that day forward that I would take any opportunity to be a part of Savvy again as it was established and grew.

    I wish I had had a network like this when I started my health and fitness journey. I want to help other women just starting out to cut through the endless pages of Google results, confusing articles, and conflicting information that have lead many to give up or never start. I want to empower women to take their health into their own hands and become aware of what they’re eating and how what they’re eating can change their mood, energy levels, and bodies. As I continue my own journey, I want to share what I’m learning with health, nutrition and other allies that are dedicated to making the world and our bodies a cleaner and healthier place.
