I'm Alison, a yoga instructor and lifestyle blogger living in San Francisco. I grew up in Southern California (Long Beach, to be exact), went to college on the Central Coast, and now live up north in the Bay Area with my husband Chris and our fur baby, Zeus. I love sharing my adventures in fitness, food, travel -- I hope they inspire you to live your happiest and healthiest life!

Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to say hi over on my Contact page :)

Adventure in Rancho Palos Verdes


Wayfarers Chapel

Decided to stop by here simply because it is the most breathtaking church I have ever seen. I fall in love with it more and more every time I go visit. (Major props to Lloyd Wright!)

I know you can't really see it in the photo above, but that spot in the middle of the ocean is a Gray Whale! Bummed I missed it with my camera but it was so awesome to watch it surface and take a breath of fresh air (fun fact: whales don't actually blow water out of their blowholes, they expire air).

Terranea Cove

And of course... stretching out after our hiking adventure :)

Exciting things are coming soon to TakeOffYourPartyDress so keep your eyes open... 

Happy New Year to all! Here we come, 2015!!
