Wealth has been coming your way in all forms, in fact. Your quest for truth… Continue reading

My Anti-Aging Secrets – Revealed!

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xfq_A8nXMsQ] I’m not anti-aging, as in “against” aging. To me, there’s something beautiful about wearing my experiential wisdom on my physical body. That said, I definitely aim to age gracefully. And a gloriously skin-tightening, brightening, illuminating facial serum never hurt anyone, either! Truth be told, I am a sucker for anything life-extending related. Let me elaborate: I am a self-professed eco-luxury skin care whore. There, I said it. Internally and externally, I will climb the walls with my well-manicured nails… Continue reading

C-ieze The Day!

Who doesn’t love feeling healthy and happy? How about having the appearance of glowing, firm skin, strong nails and teeth, and shiny hair? Everybody, right? Vitamin C is an essential nutrient made internally by almost all organisms except humans and apes, hamsters (weird, I know) and some birds and fish. Somehow, we have lost the ability to synthesize it (don’t ask me how), which means we must find an outside source. Translation: a diet rich in vitamins and minerals is… Continue reading

Allergies, Intolerances And Us – Oh My!

I have had an allergy to peanuts ever since I was tiny. Sadly, I can’t eat anything that has even had a peanut breathe on it, so intense is my reaction. Because of this, when I introduced solids to my little kiddo Jake I was so careful to avoid any potential food allergens. Luckily, he never inherited my hives – although he has a major intolerance to cow dairy. While I don’t have to worry about exposing him to milk,… Continue reading

Hey Obama: I’m Reforming My Own Health Care Bill, Naturally!

Dear President Obama, I’m reforming my own healthcare bill. After careful review, I have decided that paying into private insurance companies and potentially spending a fortune on medical bills as I age, makes me feel scarily out of control. I am convinced that the best insurance policy I can invest in is my own body: keeping it healthy, strong and beautiful will keep me out of the doctor’s office better than anything else. I will save money, and have the… Continue reading

Yammy! Food of the Month – The Yam

I am a total foodie. I love food, I love to read about it, I love to look at it. I especially love to eat it. Thanksgiving is one of my absolute favorite holidays, pretty much due to the incredible menu. Most of all, the amazing yam. I love yams so much that on a near weekly basis to date I have fried, baked, mashed, pied, and even juiced (yes, raw!) them. In keeping with this month’s rather fallish theme,… Continue reading

The Winter Of My Skin’s Discontent

I was painting my nails with my eco-fabulous Zoya polish this morning, when I noticed that my hands were very dry. My gaze drifted up my arm, where I was mildly annoyed to find a slightly scaly elbow; a trip to the bathroom to fetch my lotion meant visiting the mirror: grrr, yes, my cheeks and lips had become wintered! What does that mean? With our colder, darker weather comes dryer skin. I call this period winter of my skin’s… Continue reading

Solving The World, One Z At A Time

Zzz… Oh! Hi, sorry, geezzz… I must have dozed off. I shouldn’t be surprised, since today I’m writing to you from my very newly decorated bedroom. I’m underneath my new 300-thread count organic cotton sheets, with my vegan-friendly pillows and duvet tucked in all around me. I’ve painted my walls a calm, robins-egg blue, and I have anointed my pillow cases with lavender oil. Soft music is playing in the background. I am peaceful… serene… zzz… Hell-ooo! Sorry about that,… Continue reading

It Burns! It Burns! – Treating UTI’s

As I have stated before, I am one uber-healthy lady. It is so rare for me to find myself sniffling or sneezing, rashing or otherwise. The one burning exception that rocks my status, however, is my propensity for UTI’s – the dreaded urinary tract infection. For me, there is nothing worse. And in my case, it is both excruciating and debilitating – it feels like I’m under-garmented with a lit match. Yes, down there! A UTI is a bacterial infection… Continue reading

Today, lest we forget…

In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place: and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved, and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders Fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If… Continue reading
