Which Flavors Trigger Your Memories?

My default vanilla was established in a subterranean ice cream shop in the former Soviet Union, where my parents took me after I had my ears pierced. I was three years old, and while I don't recall the actual needle stabbing in my ear, the intense sweet vanilla lodged itself as the standard by which all future vanillas will have to measure against. Maybe in the wake of a traumatic event, your tastebuds become hyper-sensitive and tastes become saturated. Or else maybe your brain just remembers them that way. ...more

Making Me Stylish: From Housewife to Modern Chic Mom

After having my third child, I realized I was swimming in the deep murky waters of being a haggard overweight housewife with little to zero confidence around my body image. My post-pregnancy body and the way I dressed in the house very much impacted how I felt about myself, and I pushed myself into negative thoughts and feelings, with the lack of sleep and baby blues on top of it. I had to do something if I wanted my family to have a normal mother and wife, and so I made a plan for a complete makeover. Here are some things that I changed that made all the difference....more

Why I Stopped Coloring My Grey Hair

I started coloring my hair almost 15 years ago, in my 20's, because grey hair began popping up.
