We've already had a post on how to make stock, the kitchen staple I refuse to substitute with a store-bought product. Yes, I'm fussy like that, but once you read the labels and taste the stuff that comes in the box and compare it with the homemade version, it's just a no-brainer.
This has become my go-to hairdo for all occasions- I absolutely love it. I also noticed that it was all over the red carpet during this entire award season. It’s elegant, feminine and surprisingly easy to create...
For today, I wanted to show you some pictures of one of the major trends for this year: botanical prints. As I shared in one of my posts last year, one of the great inspirers of this world is, without a doubt, nature itself...
Tart and sweet, these tiny and tasty little berries, which I have just recently discovered thanks to NaturaFoodsMarket, have now become a must-have snack to have around the house...

“You are one bad client”, my hairstylist once told me (in a brutally honest and friendly way, of course). You see, he knows that as much as I enjoy getting pampered in a salon, I am not one of those girls who’ll make regular visits. My overgrown roots are clear proof of that.
This past Saturday my husband and I went on a little road trip to La Antigua (Guatemala) to visit an organic farm, Caoba Farms, we had heard about during one of our routine visits to Organica (an organic food store here in the city where we purchase most of our imported organic goods).
Super Bowl XLVIII is already this weekend! Although we’re not huge football fans (and my husband’s team, the 49ers, didn’t make it this year), we’ve always liked to watch this game with friends. I love to make food for a crowd, the game itself really entertains me (although my husband has to explain its nuisances to me every year—it’s so complex!), and of course, we love the commercials and the half-time show.
Today I am really excited because after a nearly 3-year wait, I have finally received my Guatemalan residency papers! There will be no more overstay fees to pay, visits to the immigration offices to apply for extensions, or the need to leave the country every few months. The whole process has been such a pain, I am so relieved it’s over.
My first day on the Elimination Diet was horrible. Avoiding dairy, gluten and other foods wasn’t so difficult, but not being able to have caffeine or sugar resulted in mood swings, exhaustion, strong headaches and hot flashes. I felt so tired, so low and so unmotivated that I was forced to take a short nap in the afternoon…only to wake up moments later sweating, irritated and with an awful migraine.
