ABOUT

Sometimes I feel like Alice in Wonderland...

Bonjour! 


My name is Casey. Welcome my blog about my ♥ of food and fitness...with a little sprinkle of my life. I'm a foodie in motion and strive to live a healthy lifestyle while enjoying indulgences along the way.

I moved to Atlanta, GA in 2011 and have been exploring the city ever since. Like to think of this place as a rich cultural mecca full of incredible things to do, see, eat and experience. I've been surprised at how much this city offers and proud to call Atlanta home.

My favorite things to eat range from organic produce, fresh veggie juice and green smoothies to macaroni & cheese, veggie burgers and brunch. I also adore sampling all of Atlanta's finest food trucks. Keeping this blog positive, my food-related posts are either recipes I created or restaurant meals I loved.


This blog started with my of fitness!



After working in the fitness industry (for 14 years) at a little place called T-Tapp I learned a thing or two from an impressive teacher. Teresa Tapp, creator of the T-Tapp Workout and author of Fit and Fabulous in 15 Minutes, created a unique exercise program. The T-Tapp program is cutting edge, exceptionally effective, rehabilitative and great for all ages and fitness levels.

T-Tapp has positively changed my way of life. I started using the T-Tapp workout shortly after getting hired, since for me it has always been important to believe in and stand behind what I do. Without much workout experience it was definitely a challenge but became fun and felt incredible. Really started loving fitness and soaked up every ounce of knowledge while working with such a strong network of support. My parents raised me to love healthy organic foods, and after T-Tapp I became a fitness lover too!

These days regular workouts include a T-Tapp fitness routine done at my apartment, yoga class with friends or solo in the park, hiking the Georgia mountains and walking Roxy pup around the neighborhood. Growing up, riding a bicycle was my absolute favorite thing to do. I'm excited about getting a bike this year so I can explore the city even more on trails like the Atlanta Beltline.

Enjoy the blog, stay in motion and bon appétit!

Benefits of Face Brushing

You've heard me talk about Body Brushing and all the wonderful health and beauty benefits that come along with it, but what about Face Brushing? You can brush your face and neck and get the same type of benefits as body brushing delivers!



Facial brushing removes dead skin and stimulates circulation, which firms and improves skin tone. Your skin will become softer and smoother! It's like a mini facial massage every time you brush, a fabulous way to spoil yourself during your daily facial cleaning routine.

In order to do the face brushing sequence you need a small natural-fiber bristle brush. The important thing to look for when selecting the appropriate face brush are natural plant fiber bristles. Do not use the type with plastic bristles because it will not have the same effect. I'm excited to announce that T-Tapp now sells face brushes!

In addition to the Body Brushing Sequence, Teresa Tapp created a special Face Brushing Sequence that has been proven to be effective. …

What is Body Brushing?
Body Brushing is also known as skin brushing and dry brushing. It's done using a natural bristle brush, like the T-Tapp Body Brush pictured above ($11.00, T-Tapp.com).

Teresa Tapp, creator of the T-Tapp Workout and author of Fit and Fabulous in 15 Minutes, has developed a specific body brushing pattern that's proven to be effective for all ages and a variety of health and beauty concerns. Teresa's pattern involves brushing the entire body from the feet all the way up to the neckline. Once finished go back and brush the areas that need a little extra attention, such as the butt, thighs and abdomen. 

It's best to body brush first thing in the morning, when the increased blood flow will help wake you up and the body is in a natural detox stag…

Amazing Eats at Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen

Last night I had the most fabulous meal with my sista at Pappadeaux in Atlanta. She's been keeping this place a secret from me! We get there around 8pm and find out that she knows the hostess from way back. (Our buzzer literally went off after about 5 minutes when there was over a 40 minute wait for a table. VIP!)

The first thing that we ordered was the most delicious dip I have EVER put in my mouth, hands down! Lump Crab & Spinach Dip with crispy garlic cheese bread...OMG. I could eat that by itself and call it a night.


I saw a woman with this drink and had to order one for myself. It's called a Swamp Thing made from a mix of raspberry and melon liqueurs blended with frozen Hurricane & Margarita. Fantastic! Brain freeze though.


I hate to admit that even though I'm a Florida girl, I've never had oysters before. She was shocked and insisted that we order some. Her favorites were the Oysters Baton Rouge - oysters on the half shell baked with a Parmesan Romano che…
