Sweet Soul: A Balanced Life | Zoie Esposito

As a verb, balance is defined as: “to keep or put (something) in a steady position so that it does not fall”. As a noun, balance is defined as: “an even distribution of weight enabling someone or something to remain upright and steady.” When it comes to my new series “A Balanced Life” I have chosen a few lovely ladies to feature that I believe embody what it means to live a balanced and healthy lifestyle. These women inspire me to keep buying organically (even if it is more expensive and some people just don’t get it), to keep working out (even if it is the first time in my life I am getting fit in a healthy way) and to keep up the positive attitude and energy.

It’s a new year & a new day, and I bring to you my first Balanced Babe of 2017, Zoie Esposito! You might be trying to rack your brain of which red-carpet celeb she might be, but no, she’s not famous, although her name does have a Hollywood-esque ring to it. Although she’s not being chased down by TMZ on the streets of New York, I wouldn’t be surprised if Zoie became the next fitness sensation of our social media crazed generation. Zoie and I went to college together and were always rubbing shoulders in the Greek community….yes, I was in a sorority (fun fact!). Post-college, I am glad to see, but not surprised, that Zoie is leading a life of fitness (her and a friend curate an Instagram account full of all of the hotspots to run, sweat and have fun in NYC.), balance and wellness.

Sweet Soul: A Balanced Life | Ana Goes Fit

As a verb, balance is defined as: “to keep or put (something) in a steady position so that it does not fall”. As a noun, balance is defined as: “an even distribution of weight enabling someone or something to remain upright and steady.” When it comes to my new series “A Balanced Life” I have chosen a few lovely ladies to feature that I believe embody what it means to live a balanced and healthy lifestyle.

Ana, of @anagoesfit, is a fitness guru here in Boston. If you follow her on Instagram (if not, what are you waiting for?) I’m sure she has inspired you to get out there and run a few miles, to try a new workout class, or eat a bit healthier and not let anything stop you. She is truly inspiring (leaving her home in Mexico and starting a new and active life here in the states) and I’m so happy I got to learn a bit more about her during this Balanced Life interview.

Sweet Soul: A Balanced Life | Alexandra Machover

As a verb, balance is defined as: “to keep or put (something) in a steady position so that it does not fall”. As a noun, balance is defined as: “an even distribution of weight enabling someone or something to remain upright and steady.” When it comes to my new series “A Balanced Life” I have chosen a few lovely ladies to feature that I believe embody what it means to live a balanced and healthy lifestyle.

If the name Alexandra Machover doesn’t ring a bell, then perhaps her IG handle, Spur of the Moments will. Alexandra is one of my top favorite NYC bloggers/influencers/social media enthusiasts that I follow on the gram; I love to follow along on all of her gastronomic and sartorial adventures. Not only is she knowledgeable on where to eat and shop in NYC, but she also serves as PopSugar’s Associate producer (talk about #girlboss goals!), where she gets to hang with one of my all time favorites, Hannah Bronfman, producing their Hannahgram videos. Alexandra is a girl after my own heart (she sings in an acapella group too! Girl’s got pipes!) and definitely would be part of my squad, if I had one. Without further ado, sit back, relax and be prepared to be inspired!
