Okay, so we all want to be healthy, we all want to be toned and fit and look good enough to be on the cover of Swimsuit Illustrated, and yes we’re dedicated enough to eat healthy and workout consistently to achieve that goal, because there’s no better feeling in life than feeling amazing in our own bodies! But eating healthy, working out, and staying away from...

On a frosty Saturday morning in early January there’s really only one thing I want for breakfast. The same thing my 2 and a half-year old nephew also wants… Pancakes! While the commonly held belief is that Pancakes are a rather indulgent breakfast and not for those who are watching their figures, you’ll be happy to know that this is luckily, untrue. Pancakes...

I took a walk this morning on the country road near our house, and although the wind still whipped around with Winter’s bite, in those few quiet minutes where it died down I could hear the sounds of a waking Spring. That beautiful feeling of everything coming alive, of life and renewal, the little stream gushing with new found enthusiasm, the bird song elevated...

So now that we are all pretty much at that stage where even the thought of downing another slice of turkey with stuffing and gravy, or trifle and cream, or glass of whiskey has us feeling pretty disgusted with ourselves, we can almost hear that New Years mantra “My body is my temple” ringing ever nearer in our ears, and we’re just waiting for the big countdown...

So after a weekend of hauling boxes out of the attic and turning the inside of our house into our own mini winter wonderland with Christmas trees, candles, holly wreaths, and a holiday express train that chugs in circles around our tree, carting trailers of miniature presents while shooting out little puffs of smoke… I realized there was only one thing left to do....

Since the days of watching her on “7th Heaven” on a Sunday evening, I’ve always admired Jessica’s beauty, and as her star has grown, and she has become more known...

As I sit down to write I’m looking out on a perfect mid-winter’s day, with a silvery blue sky, crisp wind and a tingling air that’s alive with the anticipation of the coming festive season. I’ve been thinking of family and friends back in the U.S over this past weekend as they celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday. It started me thinking back to all of the amazing...

When people think about eating healthy and living a healthy lifestyle one does not imagine the making and devouring of chocolate cupcakes smothered in a buttercream would play much of a role. But the fact is they are almost crucial to living a healthy life… How? You ask! Well, here’s my reasoning. Someone once told me that we are here on this earth for the simple...

One of the nicest things about my recent trip to Paris was the chance to taste some French …Spanish? cuisine. Yes, Spanish. You see, my friend’s boyfriend Alvaro hails from the south central Spanish city of Jaen and while my friend Jillian and I explored the French churches and Parisian bistros during the day, we returned to the smells and tastes of mulled wine,...

Fresh back home from a trip to Paris, I’m pretty sure that right now a good percent of my blood stream is made up of red wine. When in France do as the French do though right? And boy do they love la vin rouge! And as my friends and I sat outside a busy little French bistro, wrapped up in warm clothes and jackets, enjoying the cool winter beauty of one of the world’s...
