CRYSTAL MYTHS

In one of my earlier posts about Palo Santo, I gave a shout out to my awesome yoga instructor/insanely addictive-ly amazing crystal jewelry-maker, and I’ve been thinking about doing a post on crystals ever since. I will preface this post by saying that I am SO not an authority on crystals, so in this post… Continue reading CRYSTAL MYTHS

BEAUTIFUL FACE, PART II: THE DEW FACTOR

I don’t claim to have perfect skin. There are some women I know who have skin that is literally flawless, like refined alabaster. And unfortunately, I think a lot of it comes down to genetics. Different races and different blood lines, all have different skin types, and some skin types age more beautifully than others.… Continue reading BEAUTIFUL FACE, PART II: THE DEW FACTOR

THE WOODS

I have an intimate relationship with nature that I have developed over the years, and that I believe began when I was very young.

ART ON YOUR WALLS, DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DOING?

Anyone who has been to my apartment knows that my dwelling is very humble in terms of space. I live in a “junior” studio, so this is basically like a studio but even smaller, in an apartment complex in the suburbs of Philadelphia. I love where I live. It suits me perfectly. I have nice… Continue reading ART ON YOUR WALLS, DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DOING?

DON’T DENY YOUR GRAYS

I started getting gray hair when I was in my mid-twenties. I was like a female Steve Martin, except I didn’t let my grays grow out naturally. I was always a fan of coloring my hair. And it wasn’t because I wanted to cover up my grays. I actually didn’t know I had any grays… Continue reading DON’T DENY YOUR GRAYS
