Being Bootylicious without being Broke – Natural Organic Beauty

I’ve been making my hottie hellenic hubby a bit wonky with all the natural beauty treatments I have been dabbling with lately.  He’s actually limited me to no more than one beauty experiment a day (what century are we in that our men can try to impose rules on us anyway?)  As I write this I am making my own rosewater from roses I plucked from our garden.  Here are some wallet-friendly beauty treatments that I have been experimenting with lately.  Most of these things you will probably have in your house anyway so no need to go out...

Breathing and Conceiving? Yoga and Fertility

Breath is Life. The first thing we do when we are born is inhale, the last thing we do when we die, is exhale. Our lives are made up of all the breaths in between.

How Yoga Helps Me Battle My Cell Phone Company

Instead of blogging about yoga poses or alternative health or wellness, I wanted to share a victory I had against Verizon today so I can inspire you to see how yoga can help you when you are dealing with unfair and difficult people and situations. We signed up with Verizon Fios with their cell phone, internet, cable and land-line package earlier this year.  I’ve had a lot of problems understanding their confusing billing practices and they messed up our install as well.  They actually had our calls going to our neighbor’s phone...

Tropical Spa Treatments You Can Make and Prepare at Home this Valentine’s Day

Posted by on Jan 18, 2015 in Partner Yoga | 0 comments

Very rarely do we take time out of our busy schedule to sit back and indulge ourselves for a few minutes.  Usually, a soothing cucumber mask or an oatmeal, almond and avocado body scrub are fleeting fantasies during the day. As soon as the stoplight turns green or a telephone shrills ten we must snap out of the calming thoughts of spa indulgences and return to our daily grind or screaming, whiny kids (or husbands) and demanding bosses sending emails  on your blackberry after 6 pm every five minutes asking about the status of an overdue...

10 Wallet-Friendly Romantic Things to Do For Valentines Day

  I remember a Valentines Day about 10 years ago.  My boyfriend didn’t think to make any plans in advance so we called a bunch of restaurants and they were all booked.  So we went to a mediocre restaurant and they only had a 5:30 seating available and that was it.  We sat down at 5:30 and we were given a prix fixe menu instead of their normal menu and had only a few options of things to order. We were rushed through our dinner so that they could accommodate the next wave of seating at 7 pm.  Instead of a memorable, leisurely...

Ideas for Valentine’s Day in Philadelphia

If you are just thinking expensive dinner and a movie this year, then you will be doing what most couples do and it will be over-priced, over-crowded and rushed…. not exactly a romantic recipe.
