Fashion & Lifestyle, Health & Fitness

Sometimes, I need to remind myself that I am a mommy, to a toddler, in my forties. Most of the time, I don’t have time to think about it. But, what I do think about, is my health. And, how important it is for me to feel healthy and strong, every day! I don’t care about the number of birthdays I celebrate. I care about feeling my best, and living as long as I can, for my son, Chase! Recently, I started adding collagen powder to my health regime. I read a lot about it, and I figured it was time to give it a try.

Father’s Day is very special to me. I’m fortunate to have a dad that is (and always was) extraordinary, in every way! BUT…like most men, he’s not easy to shop for. So, I scoured the internet and found a bunch of ideas for this Father’s Day Gift Guide! One thing I believe most dads have in common is this: They don’t expect an expensive gift. So, most of these items are under $50 OR on sale!

My Diet & Fitness Routine

Fashion & Lifestyle, Health & Fitness

I’m sometimes asked about my diet and fitness routine. Most likely because I’m in my forties, I look fairly fit, and yet I love food! I spend a lot of time, in my kitchen, creating home cooked meals. I’ve been a foodie from a young age, because I grew up in an Italian family that…You guessed it, LOVES FOOD! Fortunately, I also love fitness. So, just like everyone else, I do my best to stay fit. Everyone struggles in some shape or form, when it comes to balancing their diets and fitness.

We are living in a culture that worships “thin”. Most of us have grown up with the mentality that it’s better to LOOK GOOD than FEEL GOOD. But, I’m here to tell you that it’s AWESOME to FEEL GOOD! And, to actually be healthy. I’ve learned so many lessons about dieting and fitness over the past several decades. And, that’s what it’s all about! Finding that balance so we can reach our wellness potential. 

So, if you’re looking for some friend-to-friend advice. Or, just some tips on what I’ve learned throughout my years regarding diet and fitness, read on…

Home Remedies for Depression

Fashion & Lifestyle, Health & Fitness

I’ve been meaning to write about this topic for a long time. For years, I struggled with debilitating health symptoms, such as anxiety and depression.

My hopes in writing this blog post is to encourage you (or someone you know) to get medical help if you feel that you are struggling with depression. I also want to share some home remedies that can help, as well.
