Today Mario and I got together for a long overdue blog meeting and catch up sesh. We decided to meet halfway between our places in Rye, NY. Mario is constantly sitting in traffic to commute to Westchester for yoga classes, group runs, and fun nights out, so when I suggested we eat at Le Pain Quotidien in […]

Are you celebrating Cinco de Mayo this year? Whether it’s a girls night in with margaritas a casa, your local taco joint or a full on Mexican fiesta complete with Mariachi, we have you covered! Coming off of my trip to Tulum, Mexico, I still have all the feels for this beautiful culture and I’m […]
About a year ago, I started seeing images of Tulum, Mexico popping up all over my Instagram feed, travel blogs and I was even alerted of travel packages to yoga and wine retreats there (Thanks Mario!). So when I started to really look into this lesser known Mexican village, I could just picture myself there […]
It’s Spring Break season and time for another getaway! I’ll be jetting off somewhere warm and tropical next week and I just can’t wait! If you haven’t planned anything yet and are looking for some last minute ideas without crossing any oceans, read on for one of my suggestions. Santa Monica, California. This was my […]
Another weekend has come and gone. Did you get some time to enjoy with friends or treat yourself to something nice? Are you antsy for spring weather to get here already? One of my favorite things about spring is spontaneously wandering around my city to enjoy all it has to offer. Here are a few […]
Everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day! Being an Irish gal myself, I’m not only obligated to wear green today, but I look forward to it! There are so many shades to play with, kelly green, hunter green, mint green, and the list goes on. As those of us in the tri-state area dig ourselves […]
It’s my favorite time of year…Daylight Savings Time! Yes, we lose an hour of sleep tonight, but boy does it feel good to have that extra hour of sunlight. What is the one the thing I look forward to the most about that extra hour of daylight? The fact that I can go for a […]
One sip of Oreana Winery’s Sauvignon Blanc and you’ll be transported to summer. This is just what I needed on this cold, gloomy March day. New York is really good for a tease. Just when you think spring is on the way (70 degree temps in February!) winter has a way of creeping back in. […]
With the Lenten season upon us it provides a great excuse to eat more pizza (as if we needed one!) I give up meat for 40 days and my meal of choice comes as no surprise if you’ve been reading this blog. I talk about healthy living a lot, but when it comes down to it, […]
Happy Mardi Gras!! This is the last day before the Lenten season begins. I’m excited to have my last “bad” meal before I start a 40-day fasting of sorts. “Giving up” or sacrificing for Lent has always been a practice of mine. When I was young I would give up candy or soda, but as I […]
