The BEST Place EVER!

Happy Hump Day Everyone!

This morning I woke up bright and headed to the gym, only to find out that I had forgotten my headphones at home! I don’t know about you guys, but it is absolutely imperative that I listen to music while I run on the treadmill, otherwise the treadmill quickly becomes the DREADMILL. I thought about just turning around and calling it a day, but I stuck it out and made it a whole 15 minutes on the treadmill without music! I now that it’s all in my head, but for some reason I need the music to motivate me, especially in the morning! After my 15 minutes was up, I did a quick ab workout on the mat and called it a day. Not the best workout I’ve ever done, but hey something is better than nothing right?!

What do you do when you forget your headphones at home?


Orange Leaf

I’ve been forgetting to tell you guys about this super, amazing, unbelievable, incredibly good and probably the best frozen yogurt place I’ve ever been to! Yes my friends, Orange Leaf in Andover, MA is THAT place!

My brother has been raving about it for weeks, but lately I haven’t had any time to check it out for myself. Luckily, last weekend my brother was craving frozen yogurt, and asked us if we wanted to go with him. Although I was a little wiped from the weekend, I am not one to deny frozen yogurt!

Orange Leaf is like no other frozen yogurt place I have EVER been to! The concept is great, they offer 15 different flavors of yogurt, a lot of toppings and the best part is that YOU get to dispense the yogurt YOURSELF! That means you get to try as many flavors and toppings as you want, and can decide exactly how much of each you would like! Genius I tell ya!!!

They offer a lot of different flavors such as brownie batter, cheesecake and wedding cake, as well as several classic flavors such as the plain tart, strawberry and chocolate! My favorite flavor of them all was definitely coffee. It tasted way better than coffee ice cream, and also created a party in my mouth once it was mixed in with several other flavors and toppings!  MMM I kind of want some right now!

As if that isn’t already something to scream about, Orange Leaf also posts the nutrition facts of all their yogurts on the wall for their customers to see. Although it didn’t make that much of a difference to me, since I wanted a little taste of every flavor, I will probably pay more attention in the future, and try to pick the healthiest options.

Once you have reached the end of the line, the cashier weighs your yogurt cup, and you can finally indulge in one of the best things ever created! It is so good that you will want to make sure to slurp down every little last sip! YUM;-)


Have you ever been to an Orange Leaf location?

What is your favorite frozen yogurt combination?



  1. I hate when I forget my headphones! It used to be an excuse to skip an entire workout, but now I just suck it up and power through (and make sure never to forget my headphones again!).

    Orange Leaf looks amazing! I live in Providence and highly recommend FroYo World. It’s very similar (you dispense the frozen yogurt yourself), but on a smaller scale, with only 8 or so rotating flavors. My favorite is peanut butter cup! So yummy!

  2. We have a place called Yogurtland in Southern California that’s similar. Completely and totally obsessed with the idea of self-serve fro-yo.
    (P.S. I hear you on the headphones thing. I’m the same way. I’ve considering buying multiple pairs – to leave one in my car as an emergency stash, just in CASE I leave mine at home!)

  3. We have something similar in New Canaan, CT..called Red Mango. I went in there the first time last weekend and was blown away! I could dispense any yogurt I wanted, add any topping as much as I wanted, and price was based on weight. I AM IN LOVE!! I cannot wait to go back! I am now obsessed with yogurt places like this.. I really love when you can add as much or as little as you want. for me this means, loading up on FRUIT!!! happy girl over here. Glad you liked Orange Leaf!!

  4. My husband and I just drove past an Orange Leaf the other day and were wondering if it was any good! Now we will have to stop! :)

  5. OMG that place sounds great! When I was in Nashville a few summers ago I went to a place that served yogurt the same way. I was amazed we didn’t have a place like that up here. Andover is only about 40 minutes away from me. I will have to make the trip soon!


  1. [...] people at Orange Leaf are so sweet and sent me a giftcard for some free fro-yo at my favorite place! Thank you notes are [...]
