My crazy crazy announcement…

My crazy crazy announcement…

Hey guys!

I’ve been holding something in for the past few days. However, this thing has been at least 5 ½ years in the making. In fact, it was being made even before I knew it was being made.

I asked you guys on facebook and Instagram what you thought this thing might be and you said:

TV show?


Another DVD?

Opening a store?

I love being able to share news with you guys because I feel like we are close friends and I just wanna tell you everything! So it was fun reading your comments. But guess what guys? Not a single one of you got this riddle right 😀

But I wouldn’t expect you to either…I didn’t even believe it when I first heard it.

So let me tell you a little story about how I came to love fitness.

When I was 16 years old, I started doing Pilates after I saw a Mari Winsor Pilates DVD infomercial. Then after I finished her series, I began doing some old school YouTube Pilates videos in my little bedroom late at night (kinda like you guys). I fell in love with how Pilates made me feel. I felt my body getting tighter, my posture getting better, and I just felt so graceful! I was HOOKED.

4 years later as a sophomore at Whittier College, I found that there was an opening for a Pilates Instructor position at a local gym up the street. I totally wasn’t certified or anything, but I thought maybe, just maybe they might hire me. So I practiced hard, killed it at the audition, and they gave me a job…and the opportunity to get certified! I’m forever thankful to Evelia who was the one who hired me because without her belief in me, I don’ t know if I would ever have started teaching Pilates.

When my parents checked in with me to see how my studies were going, they found that I was teaching Pilates on the side and got really upset. They told me to stop wasting my time and start studying more.

I never stopped because I knew I wasn’t wasting my time.

Teaching always made me a happier person. And anything that makes me smile is more than worth my time.

I think it was several months later that I applied to my first big box gym, 24 Hour Fitness. I was so nervous. I had been teaching to a class of only 4-5 people and had only DREAMED of motivating a crowd of people to get fit. I auditioned, got the job (woot!), and then started subbing classes until there was an opening for my own class.

That was about 7 years ago…and since then I’ve literally taught at almost every gym chain. Bally’s, Crunch, Equinox, Boston Sports Clubs. Since then, I’ve also worked at a job that I hated so much. So then I designed a yoga bag line that surprised me by giving me the chance to quit that job I hated. I also moved around a lot, made friends, lost friends, and followed dreams. But this whole time, I’ve been so lucky to have YOU GUYS right by my side as we’ve grown Blogilates together.

Guys, it’s been an intense journey. But it’s about to get even more intense…



2 years ago when I decided to move to LA to find a new place to follow my passion, I applied to some jobs out here to become a group fitness instructor. You wouldn’t believe how incredibly hard it was for me to find a job. Many of these group fitness directors wouldn’t even give me the chance to audition. I honestly don’t think they even looked at my resume! I was so heartbroken. Really.

Rejection is no fun.

But you know what is?

Proving them wrong…so so SO SO WRONG!!!


Guys…I am so happy to announce literally the craziest thing that has happened in my life so far. Are you ready for it? Are you!!??

POP Pilates is going to be an OFFICIAL class at 24 Hour Fitness gyms!!!!!




Umm. what!?

This means that you can actually go in to your local 24 Hour Fitness and take a POP Pilates class (yes like the one you see on YouTube ‘cept an hour long version)! It’s POP Pilates in real life!!!

As a group fitness instructor (haha and yes I eventually got a job teaching in LA after that heartbreaking incident), I couldn’t dream of anything bigger for my format that started as a video on YouTube back in 2009 when I graduated college! I can’t believe that there will actually be POP Pilates instructors teaching this class with me all over the states! Like it’s going to be on the Group Exercise schedule right alongside classics like Turbo Kickboxing, Bodypump, Insanity. Whoa…

And it’s all thanks to YOU. Without your love and enthusiasm for working out…no one would have ever given us the chance to share POP Pilates like this. I am grateful for you every. single. day.

And guys, it doesn’t have to stop at you taking the class. You could be leading the class. If you’ve been doing POP Pilates for a while now, and are teaching your friends randomly, or have a knack for leading others…I really think you should join the POP team. I want you to be a part of the initial group of instructors. We’re starting something very special together. Because there are over 400 24 Hour Fitness clubs in the US, we will be looking for instructors who are certified and qualified to teach at our gyms. (OMG I can’t believe I just said “our” gyms.) There are plenty of spots to fill, but before you can audition, you must go through POP training.

Trust me, it’s going to be one of the most rewarding experiences motivating people to change their lives. You won’t understand until you actually get up in front of a class and feel what I am trying to describe. I personally will never stop teaching because I love my students too much. I love YOU GUYS!!!

Invest in your education now…because it will reward you over and over again beyond, not just by getting you a job, but in what you cannot tangibly count.


1. Go to and pick the location nearest you. (There will be more trainings all over the US in the coming months!) I will be personally leading these POP Trainings along with a fellow POP Instructor named Sarah! It’s going to be a super fun and intimate bonding and learning experience.

2. If you’re Group X certified through another certifying body like AFAA or ACE, great. You can just pick the POP Pilates Powercert option. If you’re not Group X certified (like you’ve never taught before), you will need to get the whole package to get fully certified through NAFC. Make sure you click this link to get an extra 15% off your training.

3. Once you’re all set, you’ll be able to log in to your NAFC account, see your POP Instructor’s Manual, and watch the choreography videos.

4. Then we will go over everything in real life at the workshop and help you pass your test.

This will be my first time teaching a workshop like this and it’s going to be the first time anyone is getting certified in POP Pilates, so pretty much it’s gonna be a big historical milestone in my life that I will never forget. I hope you can be a part of this with me and we can build our POP army together! 😀

Thank you so much for helping me make my dreams come true. I hope I can help you turn your dreams into reality too. Please, if you ever need anything, I am here with you and for you.

By the way, next week, I want to tell you about a challenge I’ve been planning for you. I’m thinking about a meal plan and workout challenge to get us super hot and fit by New Year’s Eve. (So that we’re looking and feeling GOOOOOOOD even before 2015!) What do you think? Are you in? If you are, comment below and say IN!!!!

Okie dokie guys.

Love you so much and thank you forever and ever and ever.

    I wish this could happen in Norway as well

  2. jackie harrison says:

    Wow congrats Cassey!!! I am a single parent. I watch ur vids and do pilates in my room or living room after daughter goes to sleep. Doing your routine has whipped my body back into shape. I never thought I’d ever feel as confident about my body as I do now. Thank you!! I’m so excited for you. You are amazing and u deserve this!!! I work in Bellevue and live in Renton WA. So will deffo be doing this.

  3. Angie says:

    Hi Cassey im a huge fan, after you spread POP Pilates through the Northern hemisphere can you bring it to the Southern Hemisphere because that would mean soooooo much to me and my friends.

    Sincerely Angie

  4. Teryn says:

    Amazing go Casey!!! This is just so exciting 😀 All that hard work, belief and positivty really pays off.
    After conquering the USA…NEW ZEALAND pleeease!

  5. Tiana says:

    When does it come to 24??

  6. Emily says:

    Cassey sorry I spelled your name wrong but I also forgot to say, Congratulations!!! Great future success always you deserve it!

  7. Emily says:

    Sooo in!! How do I get started??? Casey, you are definitely a inspiration and I so needed something like this. I’ve worked since I was 16, like you, and for the first time my job description has changed to a stay at home mom of four. Three baby’s under 4yrs old. Aghhhh 😉 I was looking for a workout routine and came across yours. Needless to say, your videos stand out amongst the others. Your high energy and happy smile is infectious. I have always been small frame but now in my upper 30s, tipping 40 and four kids later all the toppings and handles have stuck. Please help me get started with your meal calender. I am also a breast cancer survivor and haven’t been eating well at all. Clean eating sounds right up my alley. Since I literally just found you and starting a routine today, pop pilates sounds like it would be awsome to teach as well and I’d hate to miss the opportunity to be trained by you personally, will you be training classes in future as well? I’m in Naperville Illinois and would like to sign up to see if it’s for me but if you’ll be out again I can wait.

  8. YANSHA says:

    ur story is srsly so so inspiring im in tears right now UR AMAZING CASSEY <3

  9. Steph C says:

  14. Josefin says:

    I’m so IN!!

  15. rachel says:

    I’m so happy for you! You have been such an inspiration to me and countless others. Your motivation and instruction has been the only thing that has ever worked for me. I’m 30 lbs down and counting thanks to you. I cannot thank you enough for all the work that you put into everything you do for your fans. I really hate to ask this, but I’m a student on a tight budget and one of the many great things about your videos is that they are free. Will your videos still be available? I know you will be busy and I’m so happy for you, but I just had to ask. Again, I cannot thank you enough. Your inspiring words have set me on a life changing path. It will be a dream come true to take your class one day!

  16. Joy Gullings says:

    I am so IN! Thank you for everything you do Cassey! I love you!

  17. Lydia says:

    I love your workouts ! I’ve been doing the calendars for almost two yrs now . The first yr I saw great results but I’ve recently been gaining a lot of weight despite intense training and clean eating. It would be awesome for an advanced calendar maybe with more gym/weights type workouts for people who have been doing the calendar for a long time ? Thanks for everything , and congrats on all the success ! 🙂

  18. rita says:

    Totally in!!!! Cant wait!!^/

  19. Heather says:

    IN!!!! 🙂

  20. audrey says:

    I am totally IN!
    And congratulations, you really deserve it 🙂

  21. Vivian says:

    Big question, Cassey! I’m planning to have my ACE certification by early January (currently studying for the exam). I won’t have it by the time I take the POP Pilates workshop (Austin, Dec 20-21), but should have it about 2 weeks afterwards. Is that going to be a problem? Do I have to present evidence of a group exercise certification before they’ll me in the door at the POP Pilates workshop? 🙁

    1. Vivian says:

      Oh, and forgot, I’m SO IN for the meal plan and workout challenge! Medical problems prevented me from finishing your meal plan last year, but this year it’s gonna be different 😀

    2. Veronica says:

      This is my question as well! 🙂

      1. Vivian says:

        Cassey, could you please respond to our question? It’s a major factor in whether I want to register for the training session or have to wait until I get my ACE certification 🙁

      2. blogilates says:

        Hi Veronica! I just answered Vivian but you can do the POP Pilates certification without Group Ex cert! You will just need to show the Group Ex cert before you can get certified to teach POP Pilates! You are fine to do POP Pilates first!

    3. blogilates says:

      You can do the POP Pilates certification without Group Ex cert! You will just need to show the Group Ex cert before you can get certified to teach POP Pilates! You are ok! Can’t wait to see you in Austin! <3

  22. Sophie says:

    I am IN 😀
    I can’t wait to start a new challenge, and i’m so happy for you 🙂 CONGRATS !!

  23. Vanessa says:

    First of all, I want to say Congratulation! and second, I am so in for the mealplan & workout challenge! 😀

  24. Yes says:

    Wow, this is great!! Can’t wait for more locations!! Congrats!

  25. Julie says:

    Wow!!! Congratulations!!!!!! That’s so exciting!
    I am DEFINITELY in for the challenge!!

  26. Star says:

    Congratulations Cassey!

    I have a question/suggestion as well –
    I feel like I’m super toned pretty much everywhere from doing your videos except for my mid-back (kind of where the band of a bra sits/bottom of the shoulder blades) Could you do a video targeting this area?

    Thanks for everything you do!

  27. Heather says:

    Dear Cassey,
    Oh My God, I am really happy you achieve your dreams, it is really inspiring to see a person who work so hard finally achieve their dreams. I don’t understand what is like the feeling of it because I never experienced it before but I know that it is a really hard and struggling journey to hold on to something and finally achieving it. Congratulations to you Cassey.

    If you happen to come to Malaysia please please please tell me, I really like it if I could meet you for you are so inspiring and a strong person. You are always positive everytime and when I saw this post I was feeling that it must be very hard for you because you faced lots of hardship to reach what you are today, but still remains positive and happy all the time although you are struggling and having hard times during the process of achieving you dreams.

    And I am SUPER EXCITED for the meal plan and workout you mention in this post to get us slim and fit by New Year’s Eve. I am dying to achieve my dream body but always finding excuses to slack off so I still did not achieve anything now (embarrassing)…..But I want to achieve my dream body or at least slim down and look fit by New Year Eve. I so excited!!!!! Can’t wait for a second for it.

    If I accidentally wrote something that offense you I am sorry. Hope I did not wrote something that offense you. Thank you Cassey so much, you teach me that although one went through hard ship but we must not lose the hope and positive and kindness in ourselves, no matter what. Because you have shown us an example. Thank you very very very very much. Sorry for the long post, if you read my message I will be super happy. But I know you are busy so I just want to express my view whether or not you see my no good comment. Thank you so much.

  28. Melisa says:

    Hi Cassey,

    *Sings CONGRATULATIONS* !! How I wish you and POP Pilates can come to Singapore though. Anyway, you’ve done a fantastic job! And, I’m DEFINITELY gonna be in for this project.
    Anyway, I just wanted to ask you if it’s possible to design a fitness journal cum daily diary for us POPsters? I think it would be really cool to carry blogilates journal anywhere and everywhere and all can just be logged into 1 journal?!! I know it’s pretty late.. but can you do it? Please? Or have you get it done already? *sheepish smile* Hope to hear good news from you!(:

    loads of love(from Singapore),

  29. Aram says:

    CONGRATULATIONS, Cassey!! I am really happy for you! You deserve this ^^ If you ever come to Portugal let me know. Keep being kind and happy <3

    1. Aram says:

      Im In, But im not sure about the meal plan, the thing is, I lose weight easily. so Im a little uneasy about it. Im surely IN for the workout. Congratulations again.

  30. Maria Carolina says:

    CONGRATULATIONS, Cassey! I am SO HAPPY for u! U surely deserve this! If I lived in the US, I’d definitely want to be an instructor! Congrats, once more!

    1. Maria Carolina says:

      Oh… and I’m IN!!! 😉

  31. Jennifer says:

  32. Theresa says:

    Congrats!! I’m IN!!!

  33. Francesca says:

    Congrats!! I’m in

  34. Veronica says:

    AH!!! Cassey… this is so exciting!!! I AM BEYOND THRILLED!!!

    I quit my part time job a month ago after a year of trying to land an entry level job in law to further my dream career… and still nothing. I don’t consider myself “above” any kind of work, but the job I was doing had reached an unbearable point that was threatening my mental health! I’m struggling now (again, back to where I was a year ago when I had to move back to Seattle and find that other job) but thankfully I have an amazing support system!

    And now this… ahh!!! I am so, so SO tempted to jump in and do your Seattle workshop… But I’m so scared! I was never an athletic person until I found Blogilates and Tone It Up two and a half years ago – but now fitness is such an immensely significant part of my life! My body and mind have changed dramatically. I think this is something I could do, if I could come up with the funds… and I’d love it more than anything else I could do outside of my “professional career.” DECISIONS!!!

    Thank you for EVERYTHING you do, Cassey. You are an inspiration to us all!!!!!!! <3 <3 <3 <3

  35. Christina says:

    So excited for you Cassey! You’re so inspirational and I hope somebody takes that class and teaches PoP Pilate’s in Hawaii! When that happens I’ll rejoined 24 hour fitness!

  36. Juliana says:

    You could open a workout place here in Brasil hahah.
    It would be awesome. Love u <3

  37. Cory says:

    Hi Cassey!! I am signed up to take the workshop in NY!! Soooo excited to meet you and be able to teach!! I have been doing your videos for like 4 years now and they are so fun and effective and I just absolutely can’t wait to be able to teach others your awesome classes! I was a serious student of ballet for a long time and now I am studying for my GFI certification now and have already been a Body Flow instructor for a year. Being a GFI really is the BEST!! Quick question too…. Will instructors be able to teach POP Pilates at any gym or just 24 Hour Fitness? The gyms I currently teach at (Golds) seem to be interested in having the class once I am certified! Hopefully that comes through!!!!

    Love you Cassey and thanks so much for all of your hard work!!!

  38. Mindy Fike says:

    I was grinning my way through this whole video update 🙂 How exciting! I love hearing you talk about the business side of blogilates. Your chart of what success looks like is EXCELLENT. It’s true- a lot of us need to redefine our definition of success. Just like in nature, our lives progress in seasons, some of which are about new growth, and some of which are about rest and the dying off of things to make room for the new.

    I am *this close* to hitting Buy for the certification in Chicago. I have a question, though. Can we teach Popilates classes at different venues? We live in beautiful, boondocks KY and sadly there is no 24 Hour Fitness within an even long hour’s drive. However, we do have some local fitness studios that allow certified trainers to do classes like Zumba, etc. Thanks!

    1. blogilates says:

      Yes, you will be able to teach in other places! You can email with any specific questions!

  39. Eleos12 says:

    IN!!!! (AND BIG “CLAP CLAP”;)

  40. Bel says:

    I ‘m in Cassey ! 😀 thank u so much <3

  41. Iulia says:

    I know people tell you this often, but you are an inspiration!! Thank you for being there for us and thank you for following your dreams! Loads of love, Iulia ^^

  42. Lily says:

    Congratulations! Thank you so much for showing us that it’s always possible to keep growing and achieve our dreams + some! I’m definitely in for the challenge!!

  43. Tara says:

    Hey Cassey!

    Congratulations!!! I only recently saw your videos on you tube and started to follow you there (in not a creepy way at all) .. and I love your enthusiasm for fitness and spirit.

    In the same token however, I am sending this as an SOS message to you. I work terrible hours, a different shift every day and hardly any holidays. Love my job but, its taking its toll on my fitness. Never been much of a gym junkie, maybe some aerobics once in a while, but its mainly clean eating and walking for me. But its not cutting it. I have piled on about 5 kgs during my last 8 weeks of night shifts and have been struggling to get that off. I joined a gym this month, but never go there. last 10 days I hv been working like a crazy woman and coming back home tired and dumping gym for some sleep n chill out time. And the next day, I see myself in the mirror having the worst guilt trip possible.

    Any advice is more than welcome. Thanks for taking the time to read my message. Appreciate it. Cheers. Wishing you all the very best with everything!

  44. Sopho says:

    I am so happy for you! And Im IN!

  45. Emily says:

    I NEED a challenge in my life. I started this new birth control on the 5th of this month and guess what… I have not worked out since the 5th of this month. It makes me soooo tired and I can see the effects of not working out… I’ve lost the tone that I’ve been working so hard for with you for the past 6 months. I completely transformed my body after having a baby last year and I’m forever grateful of you for that because I know I wouldn’t have if I hadn’t found your YouTube channel. I would have never found a passion for or enjoyed working out as much as I do with you, so thank you so much for that!! I hate that this BC takes that away from me and I’m trying so hard to fight through it. Maybe a challenge would help me get back on track!! And congrats on the news.. so happy for you 🙂

  46. Lauren says:

    SO SO SO SO PROUD OF YOU! You are such an inspiration!
    and I am definitely in!!!!

  47. Bri says:

    SO PROUD/EXCITED FOR YOU AND FOR POP PILATES! What an exciting announcement! I live in Philly and I SO wish there was a 24 Hour Fitness near me. Very interested in certification!

    I am SO in for the NYE challenge. Let’s do this! Congratulations again, gorgeous! You are such an inspiration. Can’t wait to see what’s in store for you. Xo!

  48. Aniqa says:

    Congratulations! I am so, so happy for you! Sadly, I am not from the USa, but I wish you a lot of success! 🙂

  50. This is so awesome! Congrats! I can only imagine how exciting this is for you! If you end up making it to the Nashville area I would LOVE to get certified!

  51. Hi Cassey! You must be so excited. What an amazing thing to have your own group fitness brand about to be shared by others through certification and licensing and training! Congratulations:) And I’m an instructor at 24 Hour Fitness gyms in San Francisco, so I just may consider this:)

    And I am thrilled to start the new meal plan and work-out project for New Year’s Eve. I really needed it!
    I AM SO IN!

  58. Hannah says:

    Congratulations, Cassey! That’s so cool how I can go to a local gym and actually take a class. What a huge accomplishment! I’m glad that you’ve finally achieved your goals. Go create some more. You’re a good role model about how one can create huge dreams that are out of this world and then you make them happen.

  60. Lena says:

    Congratulations, I’m soo happy for you! 🙂 I live in Europe so I won’t be able to attend those classes, but I’ll just keep exercising poppilates via youtube. 😉 Also wanted to let you know how much you have inspired me. My condition was super bad, but YOU got me interested in doing sports (well, pilates mostly… :D). So, thank you for that! 🙂 Lots of love from Europe! xoxo

  61. Diana says:

  62. Marta says:

    Congratulation Cassey!
    It’s well deserved

  63. Katie says:

    Wow, that’s absolutely amazing, I’m so happy for you, Cassey. You really deserve it. You’re the best.

    And thanks for coming up with the new challenge, it is soooo great, I would absolutely join the challenge to be fit and prepared for the new year. I’M IN!!!! Can’t wait. When will the challenge be on?


  64. Future Pregnant popster says:

    Hello Cassey,

    In your youtube channel, i don’t see any exercices video for pregnant women at their first, second and tird trimester.

    Do you think, you are going to do some videos for pregnant women?

    Thanks in advance for your feedback


  65. Congrats! I’ll have to start looking for Pop Classes and as a result 24 hour fitness classes near me.

    It’s amazing what you’ve done with this, congratulations again.

  66. Cara Reynolds says:

    Congratulations! You are an awesome example of how working hard and following your heart can change your life. You are an inspiration to so many people. Your positive attitude is contagious and you make working out so fun (even when I’m dying haha). I’m so super happy for you! I’m in for the challenge leading up to New Years! Thanks for being so darn awesome and I wish you continued success and happiness in life. You rock!!

  67. Carolyn says:

    For international NAFC POP PIlates certification, will there be live training workshops like those in the US? And where will there be, if any? I’m just SUPER DUPER excited and can’t wait to sign up.

    Thxx! LOVE YOU TONS!
    Keep up the good work Cassy and continue to inspire millions everyday!!

    Congrats! You’re so motivational and I love it! Also, I’m IN for the challenge!

  72. CONGRATS!! so so happy for you and what you have done to build your brand!

  73. Hey Cassey,

    First of all, wow! Congratulations! That is so awesome.

    Second of all, your links don’t work! I think something has gone missing in the HTML.

    Third of all, augh! I was thinking it might be fun to get POP Pilates certified before, but now I really really want to! Unfortunately, there aren’t any classes anywhere close to me. (I live in Maryland, so either Baltimore or Washington, D. C. would be accessible!) Is there somewhere I can sign up to register my interest or get notified when there are other classes scheduled closer to me?

    Fourth of all… I’ve never done one of your meal plan challenges before, but I would like to try it! Just make sure there’s a vegan (or at least dairy- and meat-free) option… not that I think you would forget that!

    <3 Clare

  74. That is so awesome…I hope it makes its way to Charleston, SC. What an achievement! You go, girl!

  75. I think it a ao cool you lead mini Pilates classses in college dorms…I think I might try that next year when I move in. 🙂 all dedicated to you!

    I am sooo happy for you!!! This is super exciting and I would LOVE to take POP Pilates classes in real life. It’s incredible how something you just imagined in your head, and put out there on your personal YouTube channel, is now something that’s materialized on such a HUGE scale! It makes me happy that, especially as a young minority woman (like myself), you chose to follow your heart no matter what your parents said, and show the fitness world who’s boss 😉 I’ve been a POPster for 3+ years and I’m grateful for all that you’ve done. I’m not quite fit enough to be an instructor but I hope one day I can be. But I’m flipping out because your NY location is in the shopping center where I work!!! I really hope I can get to say hi to you! Anyways, keep being amazing and we’ll be here cheering you on 🙂

    Cassey, I’m so happy for you and so thankful that you shared your story. I think most of us can relate to what you’ve been through and it’s such a great feeling knowing that you’ve had this MAJOR success. 🙂 Thank you for being such an inspiration and encouragement to all of us. I think we all think of you as our own personal trainer and BFF and I know that we all share in your success!! Congrats and may this be just one of many successful chapters in your story.

    YAY!!! I am super super happy for you Cassey!!! You are an absolute inspiration to me and thousands of other fellow popsters!!! You completely deserve this and I hope even more amazing things come your way in the future! So excited!

    Fay xxooxx

    So excited for you, Cassey!! Also, I can’t wait to see where the other POP Pilates trainings are going to be held. I already teach Pilates, but I would absolutely love to be certified in POP Pilates!!! And in regards to the new upcoming challenge, I AM SO IN!! I’m ready to change my body so I can pick out the cutest dress for New Year’s Eve. We are all going to look so fab <33

    Aw Cassey,
    I’m so so proud of you and the whole Blogilates community! This is SO amazing, and I’m so excited to see the whole world really get into POP Pilates because it changed my life! I will definitely be getting certified when training comes to the Bay Area. I just did a mini Pilates demo in one of my speech classes and ended up acing it! I am SO glad that I have the opportunity to share my passion with others!

    Thanks for everything Cassey 🙂 thanks for being my inspiration day in and day out

    xoxo Kayla
