LISTENING TO YOUR BODY, FOR REAL

I was born with the ability to astutely feel and recognize most physical sensations in my body, as they are happening. Perhaps I have just always paid closer attention to my bodily tremors compared to most others. Or maybe I’m not special in this respect, and I’m just a borderline hypochondriac (isn’t everyone?). But as … Continue reading LISTENING TO YOUR BODY, FOR REAL

DETROIT INSPIRED, PART II: THE HOUSE

I returned home from Detroit last week, after sharing a beautiful visit with my friend, shimmering with inspiration from two very basic-sounding, but nonetheless, deeply profound entities—FOOD and THE HOUSE. I understand that when most people travel to visit a new place for the first time, the place itself, the geographic location, the town, is … Continue reading DETROIT INSPIRED, PART II: THE HOUSE

DETROIT INSPIRED, PART I: THE FOOD

I just returned from Detroit. I don’t travel very often (this goddess’s budget doesn’t always allow for it), but I try to take one meaningful trip per year. This year, the meaning behind this voyage was to visit my friend who has recently relocated there. We met and became friends in PA, and have been … Continue reading DETROIT INSPIRED, PART I: THE FOOD

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

I actually grew up in a city, and as a little girl, my memories are of hop scotch, and car horns, and alley ways. There was concrete all around and very little access to nature. Unfortunately, the blades of grass that sprouted up through the cracks in the sidewalk were not really substantial enough to acquaint me with nature’s true wonder. So, I really had no idea.

THE LOST (OR NEWLY FOUND) ART OF GROCERY SHOPPING

I know this sounds like kind of a silly topic. Like, how hard can it be to go grocery shopping? We’ve been doing it for most of our adult lives and should have it figured out by now. But, I actually believe many of us are rather tortured by grocery shopping and don’t even know … Continue reading THE LOST (OR NEWLY FOUND) ART OF GROCERY SHOPPING

BEAUTIFUL FACE, PART I: THE NATURALS

Facial care is such a broad topic in my opinion, so I decided that I need to break this down into parts. Keep a look out for additional forthcoming parts. I also want to give a disclaimer about this entire “Beautiful Face” series because people’s faces are all so different, with varying needs and conditions, … Continue reading BEAUTIFUL FACE, PART I: THE NATURALS
