It is never just about food. Let me back up. I cannot lose weight. It’s not that I don’t want to but I am unable to. I feel like I am holding onto it as a safety net. Eating seems completely meaningless yet meaningful at the same time. I am slowly killing myself. Why? Is it because my husband cheated on me for years (emotionally, physically, and financially)? Is it because I cannot go of all the emotional baggage? What is it?
Why are there some people in your life whose main purpose, it seems, it to push your last button. I have to remain positive. This too shall pass. This too shall pass. THIS TOO SHALL PASS.
I love to read. A while back I came across a phrase that has stuck with me all thru life. “The opposite of love is not hate. It is indifference.” I seem to have arrived at a point in my life where I am indifferent to how I treat myself. I went into severe depression about 3 years ago and since then I have not taken care of myself. I don’t care what I eat; I don’t exercise. I am only 36 years old but I feel like I am about 50. I have to get out of this funk. And I am going to take control of the one thing in my life that I can control. My food. It’s time. It. Is. Time.
I love Southern California living. The weather is absolutely perfect for indoor-outdoor living throughout the year and that helps maximize your living space. I stumbled upon these fabulous photos as I was browsing thru Architectural Digest this morning. I instantly fell in love with the meditation room. The house has a calm and neutral palette that adds to the peacefulness its surroundings.

A house is not a home without personal touches. I love beautiful homes and I especially love to look at photos of celebrity homes online. It is so interesting because it always amazes me to see how they live. Sometimes you can find a celeb home and just say meh. It does not “feel” like the celeb at all. It seems like the interior designer ran with it. And then you look at some photos and you can just feel that the home is loved and lived in. And this is how this person lives.
I came across Molly Sims beautiful, gorgeous, livable (can you tell I am in love with this house) home. She and I can be friends in real life :). You can read the entire article at Lonny.
I have always felt that the kitchen is the heart of the home. Things happen there – people gather there for parties, it is the witness to numerous conversations and it is the room where you create. Here are some rooms where I would love to cook to my hearts content. Or just cuddle cup with a cup of coffee and a book.
With snow all around us and more storms on the way I have to dream of warmer temps to brighten the mood. I went online to “dream shop” and came up with a few essentials I could use right now.
- You can never go wrong with a good moisturizer. Philosophy is one of the best.
- Madewell dress. Perfect for Spring to summer transition.
- Ray bans.
- Florals are in this Spring. And these shoes are super comfy.
- Kiehl’s Argan Oil. The best dry oil out there. (<– currently using!)
- The perfect bag. I die.
