Happy Thursday my loves! I hope everyone has had a great week!  In 2011 when I did my 200 hour Prada Vayu (from David Magone) Yoga Teacher Training with Kevan Gale of Stil Studio in Dedham, MA, I was given what the Buddhists call, an “Auspicious Opportunity”. My classmates and I were given the chance to study with a living, breathing guru. His name is Khenpo Lama Migmar Tseten Rinpoche, and he is a Tibetan Lama, and Buddhist Chaplain of Harvard University. I wanted to share some of the jewels of what I learned from him, with you. You can be of any faith or religious affiliationRead More →

Happy Thursday y’all! I hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th! In today’s post I am going to share my favorite sunhat with you!

Summer is upon us, with longer days , more time spent outdoors (if you live in the Northeast!), which includes time in the sun and at the beach. Should you switch up your skincare routine? I’ve got all the details! Here’s the post on Silk Therapeutics’ website!    Switch to a Serum As the air gets warmer and more humid, the moisturizer that sustained you during the dry winter months may be too heavy for summertime.

And all the things that the world expects from women – to be beautiful, to sootheRead More →

I used to use just the Pumpkin cleanser and now that I am in my late 60’s I’ve added the Foaming Peptide. I’m almost 70 now… and your skin changes with every decade.
