Are you as fed up as I am?
As we start the New Year, my hope is as shiny as the tinsel on the tree. I practically vibrate with the aspiration of a healthy year.
And then I read the news or turn on the TV and watch ads for junk food and I realize that nothing has changed. Nothing will change…unless we change it.

I am not a big fan of clutter or accumulating what we don’t need so the rule in our house goes like this: “Have you use this in six months?” If the answer is no, then we let whatever ‘this’ is go—to a charity, a shelter or a relative. We let go and do good.

The healthiest food you can get will always be from the produce section at your local grocery store or farmer’s market. However, in the era of high-stress jobs and familial responsibilities that don’t always leave time to make everything yourself from scratch, learning how to properly read food labels to make sure that you are making the best choices out of what is available to you is a must.

Okay, I admit that Halloween was always my favorite holiday. It involved dressing up in costume, lots and lots of sweets and…it kicked off the holiday season with glitter and glamour that is unrivaled.
Then I adopted a healthy lifestyle and it all fell apart. Truthfully. As I work in the mission I love…and I do love my work, I discovered that giant bowls of mini-Kit Kats just didn’t cut it anymore. I simply couldn’t hand out “poison” to all those adorable kids.

It’s Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and Childhood Obesity Awareness Month so let’s talk about our kids and their wellness, shall we?
I’ll start this article by saying that I don’t have kids. I always say when other young women were getting married and having babies, I was getting married and healing from cancer.

With summer in full swing, it's prime play time. I don’t know about you, but I drain every drop of fun in the sun out of this all-too-short season.
I usually spend my June and July running around Italy at work and play, exploring various sights and treasures of this gorgeous country, hosting groups of happy guests all enjoying our own little la dolce vita. The pandemic has destroyed all of those summer plans for so many people, but I will be damned if it will rob me of this glorious season completely.

It’s Don’t Fry Day, but it’s not what you think. This is “take care of your skin” day. As Memorial Day weekend is on us and we unofficially kick off the lazy days of summer, think of your precious skin as you head outside to play…and use these tricks to keep glowing from now til Labor Day:
If you drink a lot of coffee, try green tea now and then. Coffee is great (I adore espresso, truly…) but it can dehydrate us leaving our skin looking…dry and sallow.

It’s May and the height of spring. We’ve done the cleaning, decluttered our lives and now it’s time to refresh our fitness routines.
Get outside and play!
