Featured: Modern Luxury North Shore

I just have to say, WOW, and thank you to the team at Modern Luxury North Shore for featuring me on the cover of their Spring 2019 issue.  I thought I would have a little blurb alongside a small picture in the magazine; I had no idea I’d have such a large feature AND be […]

I Tried Beautycounter Skincare (+ Incorporated Them Into My Nighttime Routine!)

For me, the clean beauty movement started with deodorant.  My mom always avoided antiperspirants and as I did my own research, I realized how harmful it was to let your skin absorb these toxic ingredients.  As I became more and more interested in skincare (that wasn’t until my late 20s), I was drawn towards effective […]

Rueda Verdejo Wine – A Sip of Summer

Nothing is better than a chilled glass of white wine in the summer.  An ideal summer dinner for me is a light salad (an awesome Greek salad with extra olives is pictured below), some crusty bread and a glass of crisp white wine that’s refreshing and fruity (I can’t do an oaky white–I’m all about […]
