Why I Wrote My Own Obituary

This CRAZY Thing that is Taking my Workouts and BODY to the NEXT Level

As you may likely know if you’ve ever watched any of my workout videos or subscribed to my fitness plans – I’m not big on fancy, expensive or hard to use equipment. In fact, I RARELY use it and have been resistant to incorporate much of it in fear of enlisting ANY obstacles to YOU at home in getting FIT. However, like anything you do often, your body becomes efficient at the same exercises and you ...[Read More]

The NEW Manolo Blahnik – AKA How to Rock the ‘Sporty Chic’ Look

Apologies for my tardiness in getting a recent blog post up, I actually came to visit my parents in my hometown this past week in the small town of North Bay, Canada – and no sooner did I get home did I fall victim of the FLU! Never fails, I finally go home besides my annual 3 day visit a Christmas and am bed-ridden. BUT I guess if you’re going to be sick, it sure is nice to have good ...[Read More]

My Girls Night Out with NO Guilt and GiveAway

There is something about a night out with great girls that is equal parts fun and better than therapy and even other raving pleasures (girls night or sex, what your choice?)

Treating Myself at the Hotel Jerome

Treating Myself at the Hotel Jerome

As you may (or may not know), I’ve been spending a lot of my summer (in between trips back and forth to LA and NYC) in Aspen, Colorado, and loving working with the Aspen Morning show and my All-Americana and oh so charismatic co-host Oliver Sharpe.   It has been epically beautifully here.

Too Busy? What does that REALLY Mean? My thoughts May Surprise You…

Too Busy? What does that REALLY Mean? My thoughts May Surprise You…

We are ALL BUSY – I get it… too many things on our plate, not enough time in the day, ‘swamped’, ‘crazed’, blah blah blah….

But I wanted to share our con ...[Read More]
