My 2014: Meditation, dry-brushing and NUTs

We’re only into Day Five of 2014, but I’m feeling super-duper optimistic about the year ahead. Pourquoi, you ask? Parce que I’ve been keeping up with my not-Earth-shaking-and-totally-doable-so-there’s-no-excuse-not-to-just-go-ahead-and-freaking-do-them-already New Year’s Resolutions.

Relaxed and happy is the new miracle crème

Joy joy joy. Our holiday party was a success, complete with shrieking kids clattering up and down the staircases at midnight. Our guests trekked in from Gotham, Brooklyn and considerably further away in Jersey, which was so sweet. And the catering – which Hubby fully orchestrated – rocked. You gotta love outsourcing. And a tag…

Très excellent tips from a meditation master

I went to a fun, super-informative event on Tuesday night, and before I dive into the vegan substitute meat of it, I want to give a shout-out to all the parties who made it happen. 1. Well+GoodNYC, the extraordinarily kick-ass wellness website, which organized it. Lordy I love that site, and not merely because I…
