Flax – I’m Obsessed!

Now that Thanksgiving weekend is coming to an end, I figured I’d do a little blogging on flax because I use it all the time & think you should consider doing the same.

Because I’m sure everyone is taking off early today to get a jump-start on Thanksgiving festivities, I’ll keep today’s Karma Wednesday short & sweet.

I seriously love looking up recipes online.  It’s quite fun and I get so many great ideas.  I love it so much that my Pinterest “Recipes” and “Guilty Pleasures, etc” Boards are getting out of hand.  (Click here to … Continue reading

November – Karma Wednesdays, Week One

What the heck is a Karma Wednesday? A little background: I’m currently in a 200-hour yoga teacher training program, and one of my required assignments is a little something called the Karma Yoga Project (KYP).  Most of you are  probably familiar with the concept of karma, or an action that leads to a cause & effect.  … Continue reading

NYC in the Dark

Today’s blog post is a bit different than usual. On the upside, it is Thursday.  And the markets were closed Monday & Tuesday.  That means I had two days off, a rarity in the world of finance. Monday was glorious.  I got so much work done (for school, not work work) and even did some laundry … Continue reading
