Beginning my weight loss journey

#fitpowerclub collage500

I know I've been missing from the blogosphere for almost 4 mo now, but I have good reason. I went into what is called a depressive episode from my Bipolar II due to lack of medication which was a result of lack of funds/insurance to buy my meds. However, the good news is I'm back on meds crawling back to life and making myself accountable for myself not just mentally but physically too. Today I … [Read more...]

Social Media For Social Good #JerseyLove Style

JerseyLove_2013_06_06_08_web-IMG_3849

Sometimes in life you're given an opportunity to use what little (or big) power you have to do something good. I was lucky enough to be a part of sending an important message about New Jersey after super storm Sandy hit them and devastated parts of the shore. The whole point of our trip was to share how much fun we had in New Jersey and let the world know that they are open for tourism. New Jersey … [Read more...]

Summer Lesson From My Mom

hydration-movement-logo-with-family

During the summer I'm constantly reminded of the most important thing my mother ever taught me. While there are so many words of wisdom her diligence in protecting my uber white skin when out in the sun was unmatched. My friends made fun of me because my mom wouldn't let me go out without SPF 15 (the highest then) on my skin. I wasn't allowed to sunbathe or "tan" because my mom was worried I'd … [Read more...]

This story is not an easy one to tell, but there is a happy ending because Fresh & Easy saved the day with their affordable shopping. The story begins on a weekend where we started out with little food in the house, but unfortunately my husband ("R") and I were broke. Yes, broke!

Black Box Wines Has My Vote

black box Sauvignon Blanc

I remember when I was younger my parents buying boxed wine, and it was not good. They bought it to make wine spritzers and I wondered what they were buying it for if it wasn't "good". If only they had Black Box Wines then. When my Black Box Wines showed up my husband gave me the "are you kidding look?" Then he tried it and it was all over. Those boxed wine stereotypes have been broken with their … [Read more...]

Celebrate Cinco de Mayo With Sauza

Sauza Collage1

Next week is Cinco de Mayo. I love Cinco de Mayo because the decorations are so festive, and the food is so delicious. The best part is that I have an excuse to drink Margaritas all day long. This year I had the opportunity to try the Sauza-rita featuring Sauza Tequila. As someone who grew up in Southern California [and yes I speak Spanish fluently], Cinco de Mayo is something that we … [Read more...]

The Fresh20 Makes Meal Planning Easy + #Giveaway

TheFresh20Cookbook-Summer-2-Menu

I may be organized in many many ways, but meal planning I cannot seem to get my head wrapped around. I've tried method after method after method. I think my hatred of cooking may have something to do with it. I can cook, and I'm good at it, but don't like doing it. It doesn't take me to the zen place that so many claim to go, so of course meal planning just seemed like a chore. All of this stopped … [Read more...]

My Week With The Acura ILX

ILX Cockpit

You may recall that I posted about getting to test out an Acura ILX for a week. I had such a blast with the car, and I have to tell you that I didn't even go through a whole tank of gas in that week. Yes, you read correctly less than 1 tank of gas, and I even took a little road trip with my husband. That's the great part about having the Acura ILX Hybrid. In Los Angeles NOTHING is 5 … [Read more...]
