Spring Beauty Trends- Orange Story

I loved orange long before Pantone named Tangerine Tango the Color of the Year. It’s fun, vibrant, happy and poppy. I love it so much that my entire office is orange (with hints of cream, brown, purple and pink), and one of the main decor colors for my wedding was orange. Like I said, I love orange.

Coconut Lime Mousse

Over the weekend I was inundated by thoughts of citrus-y desserts. First, a girlfriend of mine texted asking if I had ever attempted “my version” of a lemon bar. I replied “not yet”  and then spent a great deal of saturday and sunday formulating a plan of attack for said bars. Notes were taken, lists were made, wheels were set in motion. Stay tuned.

Miso Roasted Asparagus

While today’s chilly weather is deceiving, spring is definitely here. Local, organic apples and pears are nowhere to be found and are starting to be replaced (slowly) with asparagus, fiddleheads, rhubarb, and the coveted ramps. While I adore my kale salads and roasted root veggies, I am excited to start adding some lighter, springy produce into my menu rotation. Before you know it will be blueberry season. Yes! Note: I have been known to eat a pint of blueberries a day in July and August.

Bachelorette by the Beach

April 24, 2012

My love for Mexico is nothing new. The food, the beach, the tequila, it truly is my favorite vacation spot. This past weekend, for a girlfriends bachelorette, I experienced the west coast of Mexico (namely Cabo) for the first time. Being in NYC it is much easier and faster to get to the Riviera Maya than Baja. While the trip west was long I was so glad I went! The desert meets ocean topography is stunning, so different from the caves and mangrove lagoons I am used to. Also, the air is much drier making for better hair weather!

I consider myself a very good traveler. I am an organized packer. I always make sure I have healthy snacks for the journey. Most importantly, wherever my destination I find a way to maintain my clean, healthy lifestyle whilst away from home. After all, you are meant to come back from vacation feeling better than when you left, not worse!

Me and My Deodorant

Me and My Deodorant

With the recent increase in temperature here in NYC (hello mid 80’s) it feels as if we may skip over spring and head right into summer. I am not sure I am mentally prepared for this. Yesterday I left my house in a very “springy” outfit that I had been excited to break out. This outfit was completed  by a thin, pale pink jacket that I just adore and couldn’t wait to wear. The hot NYC weather clearly had other plans. Within two blocks I had taken my jacket off and was wearing just a sleeveless top! In April!

Spheres of Stress Relief

April 16, 2012

 

I spent the majority of my freshman year of college rolling around on the floor in my sweats and trying to release the tension in my jaw. Allow me to explain. I went to theater school and this type of activity was the basis for first year Voice and Speech. All kidding aside, that class was probably one of the most eye opening for me as an artist and really truly helped me get in touch with myself and my voice.
