Book Reviews January 2018

I offer three(ish) book reviews this January. All are fiction  – two are book club picks and the other is one that grabbed me due to its subject matter. While many people veer toward non-fiction books, I tend to indulge in fiction. I spend so much time thinking and analyzing during the days that when… Read more »

Sharmani Happy New Year

Short trips – in fact,… Read more »

Many people are ecstatic as they complain about hot, sticky and humid weather, but I say bring it… Read more »

Handcrafted Skin Care

Whether it’s cosmetics, food or beverages, the implication is that these products are somehow superior or safer for you to consume.

The House Girl

Last time I checked, school was out and I was looking forward to a long summer filled with dinners outside, hikes through local trails, days on the beach and me reading a few novels. Here it is mid-August and while I’ve had a wonderful summer so far, it is flying by way too fast! I… Read more »

Though I tend to veer towards red wine most of the year, when the sun comes out, all bets are off! Summer’s lighter food is best paired with lighter beverages – white wine and rosé fit the bill. While I’m certainly no wine expert, I do know what I like. For me, the perfect summer… Read more »
