My Kitchen Needs Nate

We had some water damage to our walls from a leaking water heater which lead to ripping out the floors, which lead to shopping for all new flooring. While that is getting put in (our house is all torn up at the moment) I keep looking at the kitchen every time we pass by thinking "you're next". ...more

"Designing Your Signature Kitchen" w/ LG Studio & Nate Berkus

The cool thing about this new venture is that Nate and LG Studio have teamed up in a really fun way to help homeowners create their signature kitchen.

Bright and airy kitchen updates

When we first moved into our house I was most excited about our kitchen. It's a lot bigger than our previous one, has oodles of natural light, a lovely window over the sink, and a walk-in pantry. Those were pretty much the only things I wanted to keep. ...more

The death of a healthy habit and how to prevent it

We’ve all been there… a really solid string of days where we’ve been working out and enjoying bountiful meals of whole foods, shunning sugar and basically feeling a little smug because we’re so awesome. Then someone has a birthday or a happy hour or a wedding or a…well you get the picture. We over indulge one night, skip just one workout. And then it’s months later and we’re starting our goal all over again....more

Creating a Healthy & Relaxing Evening Routine - vitafusion Review & Giveaway

Before I started my full-time fitness, yoga and writing career, I spent six years working a traditional 9-5 in marketing and advertising. When I had a desk job, my routine was pretty set Monday-Friday. Get up, workout, work, lunch break, work, evening activities, dinner, relax, repeat. My schedule rarely varied and things kind of ran like clockwork. I always knew exactly where I could fit in taking favorite classes, hanging out with friends, cooking, etc. ...more

Vitafusion Love (and enter to win $100 Visa giftcard!)

I have a major sweet tooth. I'm also incredibly horrible at remembering to take pills or any supplements. This isn't the best combination. I've never struggled too much with exercise, and I manage to eat a few healthy meals every so often. But all those gross tasting gel capsules? And extra fruits and vegetables? Usually not happening....more

Vitafusion Plus: New Line of Gummy Vitamins

BlogHer recently offered bloggers the opportunity to try the new vitafusion™ new line of multivitamins called MultiVites Plus. I jumped on it because I've been taking their prenatal gummy vitamin for years -- it was the only vitamin I could keep down during my pregnancy, especially during the first trimester. Plus, because they're gummy and taste good, I often remember to actually incorporate them into my daily routine....more

Creating a Healthy Routine with L'il Critters

I like to think that I'm raising pretty balanced, healthy kids. Even though there are a few things we buy from Whole Foods and Sprouts, I don't think we're super "crunchy" folk. Not that I have anything against people who raise their kids on prime produce and only the optimal products of our earth. If anything, I'm a tad jealous. However, our grad-student lifestyle and my general love for a 2am Big Mac stop me from getting too riled up over whatever my crunchy neighbors are eating for second breakfast or dinner. ...more

Keeping My Kids Healthy

If you've been following along here you know the importance I place on being healthy. I'm the maid, I mean the mother of this household, which means I'm the one who is in charge of feeding my family of four. It's important to me to make sure my family is getting all the health benefits food has to offer and to teach my kids good eating habits. ...more
