Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder.
Today’s topic is a little touchy and a little too personal for most. But, it is one that has been plaguing my mind and heart my whole life and I am assuming it has been plaguing yours as well. When you look in the mirror, what do you see? When you evaluate who you are […]
Stop Pretending and Start Living
I write this to you as I am flying high to San Francisco. Soon I will be in Napa, hosting a yoga retreat emphasizing a life filled with balance: yoga, wine and clean eating. As many of you know, I believe life should be filled with work and play and your play should be your […]
Cure Your Winter Blues
I won’t pretend. I won’t lie. I won’t behave as though it is not bothering me. This weather is AWFUL! I am ready for spring, with all it has to offer: warm walks outside, morning yoga sessions on my deck, evenings in the backyard sitting by the fire…I am ready! But…unfortunately, I am not sure […]

What is creating […]
I share this with you not because I want to change you, not because I want to change me, but rather I want to change some of my habits and live a happier and healthier life. There is always room for growth and improvement! And…sorry for the delay, but I have been attempting to implement […]
Healthy, Happy and Hip X-Mas List!
It’s that time of year where I share my favorite products and places in one blog and hope that it guides your shopping habits and makes the ones you love happier than ever. All my products and places are small businesses and have a special place in my heart. The owners of these businesses […]
Thanks for Giving…
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to learn, love and live. My life is not perfect, but I will never deny its greatness. My days are filled with love and joy, but only because you helped me get here. Every one of you reading this has played a special part in my life progression and […]
BE YOU, because YOU are awesome! Seriously, you are awesome. Look in the mirror and tell yourself, “You are awesome!!!!” I spent the last few days surrounded by amazing yogis at the Florida Yoga Journal Conference and as I got to know many of these women I realized many of our conversations focused on their […]
