Can we talk about the stiletto nail trend for a moment? Is there anyone out there who was just as baffled and confused about this trend as I was? I mean, I can’t be the only person who thinks these nails are incredibly unattractive and flat out scary. (They look like claws to me.)


Call me a dork, but I had no idea what Soba noodles were until not too long ago when I was looking around for gluten-free pasta options. Since then, Soba noodles, which are made from buckwheat, have been a staple in my pantry. Personally, I like to look at the ingredients and make sure the noodles are made from 100% buckwheat, with no wheat or any other kind of flour added. (It also tastes better!)


Last year, in the course of one week, Big Apple hosted a series of unprecedented workshops here in Guatemala—one of which I had the honor of hosting—that was such a huge success, they’ve decided to do it again! That’s right, ladies! Starting tomorrow, Party With The Queen is back! And this year’s workshops look very, very interesting and intriguing (setting the table using traditional Guatemalan fabrics? Sign me up!).


Two questions I keep getting a lot lately are, “how do you find the motivation to train when you’re tired and achy?” and “how do you stay motivated?” Truth is, for me, motivation was never really an issue. I love being active, and exercise is an important and crucial part of my life—it changes my mood entirely and makes my day that much better.


I was dying for some outdoor space. Now that I have a decent-sized patio, I’m overwhelmed with the possibilities. The two chairs and tiny side table we currently have are simply way too small for the space and, since they were originally a part of an outdoor dining set, they are extremely uncomfortable for lounging and reading a book—which is what I want to do.
