My Heart Belongs to Prince Edward Island

Get the 411 on 3-1-1 Kits

Are you looking for the 411 on 3-1-1 kits? Airport security regulations are the stuff of quirky and peculiar legend and it pays to be prepared and organized – and never have your liquids confiscated again. What’s a 3-1-1 Kit?

Eating Your Greens and a Meatless Recipe

Eating Your Greens and a Meatless Recipe

I’m always stressing the importance of eating more veggies to my clients. Instead of thinking of dieting or taking foods out, why not focus on adding good foods in?

Choosing French School

Choosing French School

My daughter started Senior Kindergarten this Fall. Or, more specifically, because she goes to a French school: jardin. I remember the nerves when she started in French school. My nerves – as the English-speaking parent. My husband is French, and we’d made the decision from birth to raise bilingual children and send both our girls […]

Lara Beauty Anti-Aging Skincare Solutions #Review and #Giveaway ~ CAN/US 09/19

There’s a Crest commercial that says “If you’re not whitening, you’re yellowing”. This is basically the stance I have on my skin – if I’m not working against the UV damage and natural aging of my skin, I’m helping it along. For that reason, I’ve been using “anti-aging” and “wrinkle” creams for quite some time. […]
