I tested laser hair removal

Laser hair removal is one of the first treatments I tried at Forever Institut. I started feeling self-conscious about my body hair around the age of 12. By then I had already set my mind on shaving, since I had had a traumatic experience with waxing. When I was 8 years old, my older sister…

Polar Vortex

This week, I experienced the coldest temperatures I can remember while not happily skiing down a mountain (wearing ski clothes). Zero degrees Fahrenheit, felt like -5 with the wind. Fahrenheit. Not Celsius. I experienced the polar vortex that is embracing the Midwest of the United States this week.

Mon amour pour l’art potentialise cette fascination de la chaire. Je l’ai ressenti de manière particulièrement forte ces deux…

Strong and Healthy is The New Sexy

While I work to be healthy and active year-round, I can’t help but pay more attention to my diet and exercise routine during the warmer months, in particular as   my annual trip to Greece approaches. So for the past six weeks, I have been particularly diligent. It’s not easy… while in my 20s I could diet for 3 days and lose 2 pounds, the reality of being 40 is quite different. I have had to develop some new strategies along the way. Here they are – may they be useful to you as well.

Pleine Lune

Elles nous suivent partout et pourtant impossible de les regarder en face ; elles prennent de la place, grandissent parfois sans prévenir et nous embarrassent lorsqu’elles manquent de tenue. Mais malgré tout ce qu’on leur reproche, elles sont douées pour attirer les regards et attiser le désir. Les fesses d’une femme, c’est tout un poème… Il…
