fall tv 2017

There’s so much excitement when we realize that autumn is approaching, and with that comes the new Fall 2017 TV lineup. Our favorite shows make their return, and we get to see the new anticipated premieres that we’ve been waiting for. With the cool September nights right around the corner get ready to watch some great TV. My TV watching ritual is to make some tea, get in my cozy robe, and put on a face mask before I get comfy on the couch. Usually I’ll have a glass of wine or open a bag of banana chips (Trader Joe’s has the best), or maybe even both.Read More →

The Deuce

I had been waiting for The Deuce to premiere for what seemed like eternity. Having a love for New York City and being obsessed with the 1970s, as soon as I saw the trailer this past winter, I couldn’t wait.

yoga on the beach

Discovering Yoga My first time trying yoga was a couple years ago. I was in search for a new workout and had heard great reviews from friends. I learned quickly why so many people love this exercise. Leaving my first class I felt amazing physically and mentally. It was easy to see why so many swear by doing yoga to better themselves. Since then I try my best to fit in a yoga class every so often. I’ve never gotten to a point of doing anything too advanced, though there has been some improvement in my flexibility. My main reason for continuing a yoga practiceRead More →

Summer Mornings

There truly is no place like Southern California in the summer time. The weather isn’t too different from the rest of the year but the feeling of summer brings upon a whole new attitude. Which comes with new routines for getting yourself set for the day ahead. Unfortunately for some, summer doesn’t always mean a break from getting up early and working. With work and other obligations I still find myself hitting snooze on my alarm rather than taking an extra hour or two to sleep in. But with the sun out in the summer I find myself wanting to get up and get onRead More →
