  • I have always loved Indian food. The rich combination of spices and herbs used in their cuisine is nothing short of mouthwatering and amazing—it awakens all my senses.

  • This past weekend was a lot of fun. Since a good friend is in town for a few days, we joined him and his girlfriend for a day well spent in Antigua...

  • This week I really struggled to get back to my normal routine. Suffering from an excruciating neck injury—which resulted in a bad inflammation, making me unable to even move my arms—all I really wanted to do was lie in bed and read all day, everyday.

  • I know that shorts aren’t very popular here in Guatemala, being a very conservative country and all, but even though I’ve been living here for four years- okay, almost five- this still baffles me.

A rainstorm did not stop Joy Cho, from Oh Joy, from throwing a garden party to celebrate the launch of her Oh Joy for Target collection a few weeks ago. Leave it up to Joy to bring the casual, fun and sunny feeling of an outdoor garden party indoors, while still having fun and not letting the rainfall ruin her day.

As a kid I never used to eat my vegetables. Actually, well into my adult years the only vegetables I ‘kind of liked’ were carrots, broccoli and zucchini (forget about leafy greens). It was horrible, I know, but I was a fussy child when it came to food.

I love Stella McCartney. The daughter of former Beatle member, Sir Paul McCartney, Stella has proven to be one extremely gifted designer who, as a lifelong vegetarian, is committed to creating stylish, trendy and beautifully made fashion that is 100% cruelty free. She does not use fur, leather nor certain animal-derived fabrics in any of her designs. It’s kind of hard to believe that such a designer could make it into the high-end fashion market and still be highly respected, don’t you think?

This week, as I talked to my husband, friends and family about our latest lifestyle change (we’ve had to answer to a lot of questions, as expected), the one word I noticed kept coming up in our various conversations was, discipline. People always claim that they are not “disciplined enough” to follow through with their plans to better their eating habits or meet their fitness goals.

You may have noticed that I was never a maxi-dress kind of girl. After reading (over and over) in fashion magazines and hearing on several fashion TV-shows that “petite girls should stay away from maxi-dresses”, I immediately discarded the idea of ever owning one. However, I won’t lie, I’ve always secretly admired them. How could I not? You know what they say, “you always want what you can’t have”.
