LITHE THANDAI LASSI (REPOST) 22 Jun 2016

3

I'm on a nine-day challenge, which means my diet is ultra clean and I'm kicking up the intensity in-studio and taking my workout outside for an extra hour a day. I've been testing our Lithe Spice and came up with a fantastic breakfast lassi that also moonlights as a dessert. 

Indian thandai, literally translated as "something that cools," is a sweet, creamy milk drink flavored with nuts and mixed with rose petals, poppy seeds, and spices such as cardamom and fennel. On Holi, the Indian festival of colors, the refreshment is served with bhang (a derivative of marijuana). Here we've gone dairy, bhang, AND alcohol-free and used our Lithe Spice, which accentuates the nutty, floral flavors of the lassi.  

Ingredients: 1 cup coconut water, 1/2 can coconut milk, 1 large handful of cashews and 2-3 tablespoons Lithe Spice (sub in a pinch of cardamom, pinch of sea salt, fennel, poppy seeds, and edible rose petals or rose water).

To Do: Mix everything in high-speed blender until smooth.

LAUREN'S 7 GAME-CHANGERS FOR RADIANT HEALTH & BEAUTY 20 Apr 2016

Lauren Boggi & TSH 3

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.

LB ACTIVE: ATHLEISURE 3 Mar 2016

Lauren Boggi

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.

Lauren Boggi

We have always been big fans of studio-to-street activewear that stands up to the toughest CCS sequence, and then transition to brunch with the girls or on a date after class. The general public is finally getting on board, too. The word athleisure is even being added to the next edition of the Merriam-Webster dictionary.

If you've been following @laurenboggi's LB Active challenges over the past few months, you already know that her workout gear game has been on-point. Many have asked where they can find the looks she's been rocking, so we're making it easy for you. Tell us in the comments if there are certain looks you've been lusting after, and we'll do our best to help you get your Tight End looking stylish in and out of the studio.

It's fall and we're excited to continue our collaboration with Lauren's favorite Philly boutique Third Street Habit. Our We Wear series is a style diary that maps Lithers's studio-to-street wardrobes throughout the seasons. Over the next few days, weeks, and months we'll feature our go-to looks. To kick off fall, Third Street Habit is offering a 15% discount to all Lithers and FitHipHealthy readers thru 10.21 (today is the last day!). Mention code hiphabit15 in-store or enter it at checkout.  

For my second look, I chose a flannel, plaid dress that I fell for at first sight. You know when you find a piece that seems like it was made for you? I feel comfortable, confident, sexy whenever I wear this Current/Elliott flannel dress. One style rule that I always stick to? Wear what you love. Plaid is one of those classics that I love to wear. It comes from Scottish culture and dates back to around the 1700s. I love a great basic and plaid definitely ranks up there in my ultimate basic style staples. 

Current/Elliott Twist Shirt Dress: I can't get enough of this new twist on the classic shirt dress. It's casual and cool (and sorta 90's grunge) and I love the sexy, fit and slouchy boyfriend-style sleeves that tie around the waist. I bought this one and have worn it with heels and ankle boots and as a tunic with leggings.

BB Dakota Harper Leather Jacket: I would never have picked this jacket for myself, so I'm glad Liz had me try it on. It's simple, versatile, flattering, and so chic. It adds polish to the plaid dress, shows off my waist, and doesn't overwhelm my petite frame. 

Chan Luu Thread-Through Drop Earrings: These are unique, easy to wear, light, and pretty.  Thread through earrings are this season's must-have accessory, so I was excited to see how the swingy length looked on me. This design has a delicate sterling silver chain that anchors a 20 gauge curved post on one end and a luminous blue-ish gem on the other. 

Fortress of Inca Adriana Coco Bootie: Handmade and sustainable with a 3" heel.  I tend to purchase every pair of Inca shoes that I slip on. I love how they dip down in the front which totally elongates the leg.  Classic, comfortable, and totally walkable!  Perfect for fall.

WE WEAR: FALL 14 Oct 2015

LaurFallHudson Shoes Hat Attack LaurenBoggi

It's fall and we're excited to continue our collaboration with Lauren's favorite Philly boutique Third Street Habit. Our We Wear series is a style diary that maps Lithers's studio-to-street wardrobes throughout the seasons. Over the next few days, weeks, and months we'll feature our go-to looks. To kick off fall, Third Street Habit is offering a 15% discount to all Lithers and FitHipHealthy readers thru October 21. Mention code hiphabit15 in-store or enter it at checkout.  

I’m a big believer in wearing things that are comfortable and also make me feel good. I love how a timeless vest and a killer hat can upgrade a top and simple pair of jeans.  

For this first look, I opted for a slightly dressier outfit. I’d wear this on a date with my husband, out with girlfriends, or to a holiday gathering. Wearing booties in the same color as my pants lengthens my not-so-long legs and sticking to neutrals (as I always do) keeps everything modern and chic. But I love these grey booties so much that I broke my rule. A long statement necklace dresses up the outfit and this incredible fedora balances everything out. As you guys know, I am a huge fan of Rory Beca and Mother. I've collected pieces from those lines for years and Third Street Habit always carries their latest and greatest. Liz at Third Street has the talent of a stylist and knows what looks best on my body. She also coordinates the perfect accessories to match. Check out our first fall look. 

Rory Beca Front Keyhole Blouse: I can't get enough of this blouse. It’s just the right amount of slouchy and fitted, has a feminine neckline and sweet fringe. Made from ultra-soft poly faille, it has a luxurious feel. I bought this one and I often pair it with heels or ankle boots. I often wear it as a tunic with boyfriend jeans and simple flats. It'll never go out of style. 

Burning Torch Below Zero Vest: This rich, fall vest is an investment piece for sure. It's soft, unique, wearable, and beautiful for the season. I love the color and how the side ties cinch at the waist and emphasizes my curves. 

Mother Denim The Vamp: Dark, fitted, and distressed with the perfect rise. These are cropped, but I folded mine under for the shoot.   

Hudson Shoes Kiver BootThese slate booties are so hot. Brushed gray suede boots have a 2" stacked heel and leather sole. Perfect for everyday.

Hat Attack Wool Fedora: Tailored with a bit of boho, this hat tops off any outfit. Get ready for a lot of attention.

Chan Luu Smokey Quartz Necklace: I love Chan Luu's boho-luxe signature wrap bracelets and this necklace is just as stunning and eclectic. Wish I could layer a few of these, too!
