Street Style: Move Your Body

By Kestrel Jenkins

Inspiration: Your Body, Your Environment

"Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live." -Jim Rohn

As the new year is off to a roaring start, staying or getting fit and healthy seems to be at the top of everyone's mind. As our style icon Bianca tells us, to her, it's one of the most important measures to building her abundant life.

Apparently, Bianca is learning to love winter workouts :: "Though the cold air bites at first, running, walking (or even practicing yoga) outdoors can be so invigorating and refreshing. Each season is a gift, and for me, the coolness and stillness of winter offers the chance to introspect, build character, release whatever is no longer working and plant beautiful dream-seeds for the next season."

Based on the East Cost, Bianca knows first hand that having the proper gear to stay warm is essential!
