There’s a great farmer’s market in my neighborhood that I like to go to every Sunday. Last time there was such an abundance of beautiful, colorful produce — I simply ran wild! I ended up coming home with a tote full of fruits, vegetables, and some delicious prepared snacks (the garlic tomato hummus is my […]
One of my favorite things about summer are the al fresco dinners my friend Julie hosts in her backyard. She always goes above and beyond to set the mood: String lights hung above the table, Bossa Nova playing softly in the background, and an intoxicating smell of honeysuckle blossoms wafting through the air… It’s magical […]

A few weeks ago, I went to a Korean spa with a couple of girlfriends. It was a really fun experience, because it’s a little different from the usual European-style spa. Korean spas traditionally have different types of communal relaxing rooms, each with their own healing benefits. My favorite was the detoxing Himalayan salt room. […]
If you’re into fitness and technology, you know that the latest “thing” in the active world is “wearable tech” — a watch or other bracelet-type item that can keep track of anything from your steps and heart rate, to your sleep patterns and calories burned throughout the day.

I was having acai bowls at the neighborhood health foods cafe with my friend Monica the other day, and she told me the most peculiar thing. She started waking up at 6:45 AM every day without an alarm. At first, she didn’t take much notice of this since her alarm usually goes off at 7:30 […]

You might call me crazy, but I can honestly say that it wouldn’t be the end of the world if I could never eat ice cream again. Now…I know what you’re thinking — you are crazy! But hear me out…. The reason I don’t care for ice cream anymore is because I found something exponentially […]

I remember my first ever car, it was a baby blue Chevy Nova. I got it when I was 16 and I drove it until it started breaking down. One day I was driving down the highway and my engine started steaming. I didn’t know what to do, so I pulled into a gas station and […]

I absolutely love tea because it’s such a versatile drink — it can be caffeinated, decaf, fruity, sweet, or even herbal. But the thing I love most of all are the beauty benefits that come with drinking tea. Not only are teas hydrating, they’re also packed with skin-boosting antioxidants and vitamins that can help […]

I don’t know about you, but I was born with super thin hair, and it has always bothered me. I remember watching all the red carpet shows on TV, admiring the celebrities with thick, luscious hair, and I was so jealous! I always wanted to have hair like Eva Longoria or Meryl Streep.
