I’ve always had a kind of boyish side when it comes to household chores. You know, I’m the messiest, least organized person on the planet, and plus, I’m way too important of a person to pick up after myself.

And of course, I figured out pretty quickly that if I skipped buying a pair of shoes, I could pay for a house cleaner, and my life is forever changed. It’s such a luxury for me.

There’s nothing better.

Julia Sherman’s Salad for President

Salad gets a bad rap; not always taken seriously as a complete meal, instead associated with restrictions and diet fads. On the contrary, and I am a big believer in this, salads can be hearty, wholesome, and highly nourishing for many! Julia Sherman knows this, and not only is she interested in the nutritional appeal of a salad, but also the artistic.

A Holistic Approach: Dr. Shirley Madhere

I met Shirley Madhere a few years ago through a friend and loved her right away. She is a plastic surgeon and an authority in her field, but she’s also the most approachable and sweetest person ever.

Of course I always have so many questions to ask – with her holistic approach, she’s become one of my number one references in beauty. She was the one to tell me to strip down my beauty regimen for example. She’s a real pro at less is more, and she has so many lessons to teach, even if like me you’ve never gone under the knife, I thought this could be a great conversation.

And it was.
