Ekaterina for Lithe Giveaway

TGIF, Lithers! This week we have a giveaway of the decadent Ekaterina Luxury Cream from Sabbatical Beauty. Did we mention 2 ounces retails for $175??

The cream is made of four types of caviar extract, three types of gold and white truffle extract. Caviar is well known for providing essential Omega three oils and has anti-aging properties. The gold in the Ekaterina cream comes in three different forms: colloidal gold (small, microscopic gold particles suspended in distilled water), fermented gold (yeast that has been enriched with gold and then harvested), and real 24 karat gold that both tops the cream and is dispersed throughout the jar. The Ekaterina Cream is part of Sabbatical Beauty's limited edition Fall collection, CRISP.

Sabbatical Beauty was founded by Lither Adeline Koh, Ph.D. Originally trained as a humanities professor, Adeline began researching skin care and making her own beauty products when she was frustrated with existing products on the market. The majority of brands loudly proclaim "active" ingredients on their packaging, but these actives make up only a tiny percentage of these ingredients. She decided to make her own products to really maximize these active ingredients. After seeing the results on her skin, which used to be red, dry and acne-prone, her friends demanded that she make products for them as well. They then overwhelmingly reported about how well the products worked and how quickly--diminishing redness and acne, filling in fine lines and wrinkles, and brightening complexions. Her friends then encouraged her to open up shop, resulting in SabbaticalBeauty.com.
To dive deep into the Sabbatical Beauty community sharing reviews and no-makeup selfies, join their Facebook Group and like them on Facebook! Everybody wins here, too, as Adeline has extended a 10% discount to all Lithers new to Sabbatical Beauty by emailing her at info@sabbaticalbeauty.com.

For a chance to win, please comment which product from the CRISP collection looks most enticing to you. One winner will be chosen at random on Monday, so you have three days to enter. One entry per person. Thanks and good luck!

8 WAYS TO FALL {REPOST} 18 Sep 2016



Fall is my favorite season and we as humans are just like the seasons. I look at fall as a time for personal harvest. September and October are similar to the new year. It’s also just like heading back to school. Like the ebb and flow of nature's seasonal changes, fall is a time to reflect on our lives and examine where we are with personal accomplishments (bucket list, anyone?). 

Come September, I often ask myself what I need, what’s missing, or what needs to change. With all this change and incentive to push the restart button, it’s a great time to get back on the horse with your Lithe/fitness routine, and create healthy seasonal habits for the holiday season and upcoming winter months. 

Here are eight ways to make the most of the season. And who knows? This year, you might be your Lithest before the holidays roll around.

1.  Earlier to bed, later to rise
There never seem to be enough hours in the day, but if you add 30 minutes to your usual wakeup time and crash 30 minutes earlier each evening, the extra hour of rest goes a long way in helping you adjust to shorter, darker days and the drastic decrease in temps here in the Northeast.

2. Nutrients in, garbage out
Break a sweat every day, cut out processed food, drink those Greenies, bust out the neti pot, use essential oils, brush your skin, and drink more water.

3. Fall back a bit (but not a ton)
We take care of matching Lithe schedules to the seasons, but it’s your job to slightly reduce the intensity and frequency of your schedule. If you’ve been Lithing two times a day AND running or if you’ve been in the studio seven days a week, give your muscles an extra day of rest this season.

4. Breathe, sweat, shake, and wrap it up.
The Lithe breath is the foundation of your practice. It not only works the core, but releases excess toxins. Looking for other ways to release toxins? Wrap yourself up and sweat it out by wearing our calorie trashers during sculpting classes.

5. Enjoy (and winterize) your diet
Eat foods that are local and in season. Enjoy your local farmers' market, cook more, and grab Lithe Foods. Go apple, pear or pumpkin-picking with friends and family. Put these fruits and veggies on your grocery list: arugula, artichoke, broccoli, endive, beets, cabbage, carrots, celery, chard, chicory, cranberries, eggplant, fennel, garlic, kale, leeks, okra, pears, peppers, grapes, pomegranates, pumpkins, radishes, spinach, sweet potatoes, turnips, squash, zucchini.

6. Build your practice
Fall is the ideal time to build (or re-build) the foundation of your Lithe practice. Did you fall off the wagon this summer? Are you feeling less than motivated? Try your own nine-day challenge to focus on healthy eating, get back into the Lithe habit, and see serious results. Can't manage a challenge? Sign up for three classes a week, three weeks in advance, and try not to cancel under any circumstances. 

8. Give thanks
We have to keep in mind that very little is accomplished by ourselves. Be grateful for all of the people who support, guide, and challenge us. Remember that the grass isn’t always greener and that there are people in the world that would give anything to be in your shoes right now.

Coming to Jake's? Grab your girls and get ready for the time of your life. If there's one thing we feel that we've truly nailed, it's the art of packing for Lithe Escape. We can squeeze in just under a week's worth of outfits into a carry-on (recycling is key) and have our Escape beauty routine down to a minimum. We're pretty confident when we say we've got this one. Here's what you'll need.

I’ve tried almost everything when it comes to health and beauty, and I’ve adopted a few habits over the years that have become absolutely essential to my everyday.  Many of you guys tell me that I glow, and I know that these little game-changers have made a massive impact on my health and beauty.

Bone Broth is a miracle food. If you’re looking for a natural tonic for total-body health and beauty, bone broth is it. When I started including bone broth as a regular part of my diet, everything improved – my digestion, my immunity, energy levels, my skin, and my joints. I've even passed the ritual on to my mom who has had 7-level spinal fusion three years ago and she's never felt or looked better. 

I use this mineral-rich liquid gold as a base for soups, sauces, and veggies, and I love sipping it straight every morning – usually with a pinch of Jacobson's sea salt, fresh pepper and a pinch of turmeric or Lithe Spice. 

Alphaeon & Val Daily skin care systems have been total game changers for me. In just three weeks my fine lines disappeared. Alphaeon smoothes, plumps, and hydrates without a needle or a laser. It's the only product proven to enter the dermis without an injection. It's fragrance-free and not tested on animals. Sold exclusively at Dr. Bucky's

Cardio-Cheer-Sculpting has transformed my body. I’m stronger, lean, muscularly balanced, more flexible, and less stressed. Movement is my happy place and I love the intense slow sculpting and the empowering high-energy cardio workouts. There's nothing else like it. 

Mindfulness is so powerful. I make sure to take a time out every day, and I always feel a million times better because of it. I use the Buddhify app. It's so easy. Just grab your phone; you’ll be a better partner/mom/employee/boss or friend because of it. 

Eating Lithe goes far beyond weight loss.  Many issues like bloating, fatigue, stress and depression originate in the gut. Eating whole, healthy foods is a game-changer when it comes to boosting your health. Adding superfoods, smoothies, cold-pressed juice, probiotics, and fermented foods (like kimchi and kombucha) keeps me energized and healthy. 

Foam Rolling is a part of my everyday because stretching is never enough. I want to feel fluid, and rolling improves circulation, which preps my body for my workout and helps it recover afterward. Foam rolling also assists in breaking up trigger points (knots that limit range of motion), resuming normal blood flow and function to the muscle.  Releasing trigger points (knots) helps to reestablish proper movement patterns and pain free movement, and ultimately, enhances performance. By applying pressure to specific points on your body you are able to aid in the recovery of muscles and assist in returning them to normal function. Normal function means your muscles are elastic, healthy, and ready to perform at a moment’s notice.  

All Girl Getaways are immensely therapeutic. It's the ultimate re-charge. For me, getting away with girlfriends and hitting the reset button is hands down the best way of getting out of a rut. I return with a renewed sense of energy, purpose and independence. The empowering benefits of a girls getaway is what inspired me to create Lithe Escape. The effects and results are deep-rooted and long-lasting.

RUN THE BEACH! {2015 REPOST} 13 Apr 2016

Triangl1 Triangl

Happy April! Summer starts in 6 weeks, and we're ready to run the beach! Spring has sprung, so it’s time to soak up the sunshine, get prepped to rock that Earned In Winter body, and spend time with friends and family. I miss the concept of having a true spring break in my life — taking a week long break from work to reset and refresh (and lay on the beach with margarita in hand).

In honor of my much-anticipated break (and our upcoming Lithe Escape), I'm sharing some bikini tips with you.  A fantastic bikini is always the first item I pack when I’m traveling somewhere warm. These Triangl bikinis are my swimwear picks for the season. I love the supportive neoprene fabric, bright neon colors, and fantastic fit. 

If you choose to wear a bikini, you should show off your Lithe-earned body in a suit that you feel comfortable and confident in. Any Jane can wear a bikini, but to feel confident in a bikini is another story. Here are some tips so that you can run the beach: 

Try EVERYTHING on. Suits look completely different on your body than on the hanger. Untie first – you need to adjust the straps to your body (not the girl’s who tried it on before you) or you won’t get the right look or fit. 

Stringin' it? If you have a top with strings, tie it in the back first, and then stretch the cups over your breasts before tying behind your neck. Got a bottom with strings? Tie it so it sits on your hip bone. Don't go too low or even worse, too high. (Hello, David Lee Roth circa "California Girls.")

When a suit fits, you don’t get any “overspill.” Remember that everything has a place — inside your suit.  Watch out for super-skinny straps ... Narrow straps are rarely flattering and create back bulge if you have even a little meat on your bones.

Lithe it up! I highly recommend our Essential Workouts. Skinny Jeans and High Mini classes are our blueprint. Both tone your body and build your Lithe muscular structure with a quickness. 

Eat Lithe whenever possible. Eating Lithe (eating clean) will not only get you into your bikini, but it also makes you feel Lithe inside. Keep whole food (preferably raw) snacks on-hand at all times to keep energy levels up and hunger at bay. 

Lastly, check yourself before you wreck yourself – in a three-way mirror, that is. You want to be sure you look great from all angles. Once you find a perfect fit, take note of the brand. Companies rarely change their fit from year to year. It’ll make next year’s shopping that much easier!

We asked which pieces from Lauren's LB Active videos you loved and many of you mentioned this Strut This crop top and leggings. The custom print was designed by New York-based artist Christopher Lee Sauvé and Lauren loved this set so much that she got it in black and white. It feels fashion-forward and luxurious, but also supportive enough for everything from foldover work to herkies. And the crop top looks amazing outside the studio with a high waisted skirt and fitted jacket. Bandier always finds designers who strike a perfect balance between form and function.
