Several months ago, Carrie Bohnert watched a few YouTube videos and taught herself how to crochet. “Crochet is easy to pick up and put down, and I can do it safely around a rambunctious 3-year-old,” she says.

In January, you might expect to see women sporting workout wear more than usual due to New Year’s resolutions. But even now, months later, more women are stepping out in Lululemon, Gap Fit, and Athletica attire even if they haven’t actually hit the gym. Whether they’re on the way to the office, waiting in line for a morning coffee, or school drop-off line, attending casual meetings, or going out for drinks, women are mixing it up with sportswear.

Here are some of the rules of achieving this look like a pro.

Eat Dessert Without Guilt

Before you eat a piece of cake, think about this...

While gazing into a bakery window on a street in Amsterdam, Christen Malone realized she wanted to be a baker. She was 17 then, a time when most adolescents are thinking about what to study in college. Back in the States some time later, her dream hadn’t wavered. “My parents said I could go to pastry school, but I also had to get a business degree,” she says.

Midway through her studies in baking and pastry arts and in hotel and restaurant management at Western Kentucky University, U of L, and finally Sullivan University, Christen was introduced to the spiritual principle of a universal balance in which everything contains energy. Arising from this newfound awareness were questions nearly every 20-something eventually asks: How do I want to make my time on earth mean something? What is my purpose?
