Spring Smoothies!

The onset of spring seems to have everyone thinking about getting beach ready. That means more exercise and less sugar! In truth I’m not sure why we go through this every year. It’s not as though we all walk around in bikinis all summer long. But I guess it’s a good excuse to make some healthy changes. And lately I’ve been obsessed with my morning smoothies.

When a Yawn is Not a Yawn

The other day I was standing on a busy downtown street with my 3 year old pooch Lola while talking to some friends. I love the opportunity to show her off to other dog lovers – to me she is the super model of dogs. But as I went on about her greatness I looked down and what was she doing?

Sometimes it means a night in, complete with robe, slippers, room service and a sappy rom-com or it might be a seat for one at the end of the bar at some local hot spot. Either way, I enjoy the solitude after a day of being “on”. So it really sucks when someone ruins my fun.

The Travelers’ Code

Air travel for the masses has become nothing other than undignified. Given the close proximity we’re thrust into with the security line ups, pat downs and on the plane itself, it is an oddly intimate experience that too few people realize is happening with a bunch of complete strangers. It’s like everyone has forgotten we’re in a public place. Hellooo…..we all see, hear and smell everything you’re doing!

Bullies Be Gone

Today I’m attending a fundraiser in Vancouver in support of Pink Shirt Day (coming up on February 26th) to raise funds and awareness for anti-bullying campaigns across the country. I am more than happy to lend a hand because bullying can happen to anyone, at any age, including myself.
