I have had what could only be described as a sensational year. Which is not to say it didn’t have it’s challenges, but if you told me that by the end of 2015 I would be here I may not believed you EXCEPT that I was clear that here is where I wanted to be, … Read the rest
I feel like it could only happen to me. To get my first Brazilian wax totally accidently in Bali. When I did not, nor haven’t ever really, wanted a Brazilian. But anyway, for anyone else out there who wants to know how (or how not) to have thIs happen to you, here’s the low-down on … Read the rest
I have never been addicted to anything. Like really, truly unable to stop. Except maybe people. I have been addicted to some people who were really not good for me.

I was a complete yoga slut last week. Just sharing it all around, no loyalty, no particular focus on one practice and discipline, just having a fancy old time of it with all the teachers and all the styles.

Last night we hosted Thanksgiving Dinner for the first time, inspired by our truly amazing au pair. She baked for two WHOLE days in preparation, whilst also single-handedly managing the rest of the week’s menu planning and shopping, entertaining … Read the rest

I have this habit of saying stuff like “oh, I don’t really drink” usually while I’m drinking something alcoholic. I’ve been doing a bit lately, and have also caught myself saying “I don’t really eat much sugar” while I’m scoffing some amazing diabetic-inducing dessert, and “I don’t really drink coffee” when I’m behaving like a … Read the rest
