I had an appointment to get my nails done yesterday.  I have been going to the same salon for years and my nail girl, Julie, is the best.  She makes my nails look beautiful and I won’t... read on

  • What do tattoos say about you?

    I spent Sunday in Malibu, which is one of my favorite places on earth.  It was sunny and warm with just the right mix of locals and tourists.  It was busy but not overly crowded.  We scoped out our spot and settled in.  It was about 11 am and our fellow beach bums were families with... read on

    My son has gone back east with his best friend for three weeks.  It is the third year he has made the trip and he truly loves it.  They hang out at the lake, play tennis, go hiking, see movies, and have a classic all American summer experience.  Today marks 18 days until I see him.

    I have been divorced for 16 years.  I left my husband when my son was only a few months old and while it was very difficult, staying would have been harder.  I knew I needed to leave and if I hung on for my son he would not have been in a happy place.  In the end the marriage would... read on

    Last night my son went to a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises.  As he sat in the theater enjoying the movie, a night of terror erupted in Colorado.  I sat up all night watching the news and praying for the victims and their families.  It is unfathomable that this has... read on

    I have been dating a man for a little over four months.  By dating of course I mean I have been in a relationship.  From our first date there was a connection and we simply fell into a relationship without really dating.  It has been fun, effortless, complicated, and exhausting.  I... read on

    I like grocery shopping.  I cook most everyday and I especially love the produce section of my local market.  I am big on fresh ingredients and tend to buy a lot of organic.  I don’t use recipes or cookbooks unless I’m making something I’ve not made before.  I cook a lot of my... read on

  • Showing Kindness is Not Hard, it is Required

    By Ilana Angel

    July 15, 2012 | 2:53 pm

    Sadly I am often surprised by how, when given the opportunity, people are not kind to a stranger.  We live in a harsh and cynical world where there is not a lot of kindness.  I understand people are jaded, but when you make a conscious decision to not lend a hand to someone in need,... read on
