Travel Diary: Terranea Resort, by Destination Hotels ~ Day 2

Terranea Resort - Front Drive

 My second day at Terranea Resort, by Destination Hotels & Resorts started with a hazy view of the Pacific, but a restful Julia. I dragged my travel yoga mat to my balcony and worked on a few sun salutations to awaken my body after such a great sleep. As I looked out on the hazy view of [...]

2014 Summer To-Do List

Summer

Happy 4th of July. I live in an area that has amazing and fun things to do for the summer. It can be outrageously expensive or low key and cheap. Here are a few things that I am considering for my summer to-do list. Jazz in the Sculpture Garden. We haven’t been together in a [...]

Bumble & Bumble Invisible Oil Shampoo and Conditioner

Bumble

  Every time I get my hair cut I always peruse the shelves to see all the latest and greatest beauty products that have arrived since my last appointment. Although I wear my hair short, I like it to be healthy in case I ever decide to grow it back. Yeah, right in my “ain’t [...]

Wellness Wednesday: A Few of My Meditation Tools

Mindfulness

I started getting into meditation over two years ago. I knew I needed to quiet my mind, but I was very resistant on meditation. I can’t sit still and think of nothing. Seriously? How does Russell Simmons do this? I did one of those Oprah + Deepak Chopra 21-day Meditation challenges and after that I was hooked. They [...]

Reading Pretty: The Vacationers by Emma Straub

The Vacationers

I decided a few months back that I would stick to mainly fiction for the summer. There isn’t anything better than being able to dive so deep into a good book that sucks you in and doesn’t let go unto the last page. That’s how I felt reading Emma Straub’s The Vacationers. The Vacationers mainly [...]

I had never heard of Deep Creek until I met my husband. He and a bunch of his friends take a yearly trek to this 3 hour mountain and lake area every year. Basically it’s a relaxing weekend, a huge log cabin mini mansion where there is tons of laughter, good foods, old school board [...]

RoC® Skincare Wrinkling Ranking Study

RoC Blog Academy

I grew up in the South and I have a deep love affair with the sun. Yes, I may live below the Mason Dixon Line, but to me DC is still the east coast. East coast means two things – seasons and snow. In no particular order from the way the weather has been over [...]

Rituals Ayurveda Yogi Flow Body Wash

Rituals

  I’m a big believer in the art of the ritual. Some may call them routine, but I find the word ritual makes it a little more special. My routine normally consists of prayer, a daily 30 minute yoga practice, and morning readings. I like to do this early in the morning when the neighborhood [...]

6.20.14 Le Weekend

It has a been a busy few weeks over here in my world, but despite some ups and downs I’m still grateful. In the midst of madness I can always find a few pretty things to make me smile. I’m trying to reach my goal of 45 books this year and according to my Goodreads [...]

Perricone MD No Blush Blush

Perricone No Blush Blush

I’m a sucker for a good blush. I like them in all variations – powder, cream, stick, and liquid. I wear it almost every day. I was intrigued when I heard Dr. Nicholas Perricone was creating a makeup line. He’s known for his amazing skin care and I knew the products would be great. But, I [...]
