I’m planning a Gwyneth Paltrow-themed potluck dinner party – themed dinner parties are kind of my thing…I don’t like to cook, but I love getting people together and I find that if it’s around a theme like Momofuku, raw vegan, or Gwyneth, it makes everyone else get more excited about partaking.
I just got back from an amazing week in Europe that took me from Milan to Parma to Dublin to the Irish countryside to the British countryside and finally to London…
I’m a snacker – I’m not one to sit and eat breakfast or lunch so aside from dinner I rarely sit down for a proper meal. The problem is that most “healthy” snacks really aren’t that healthy, especially because most of them are hugely addictive so you can easily end up consuming 600-plus calories between meals without even noticing.
Who needs bread? Well, me…I’m a bread addict. The hardest part about spending two weeks in Japan was that most meals did not come with bread (old habits die hard!).
After body wash, body moisturizer is about as low maintenance as any product you apply to your skin gets. The most important factors are that it smells good, absorbs quickly, moisturizes effectively, and doesn’t break the bank (at least I don’t want to spend the bulk of my beauty budget on either body cream or body moisturizer).
It’s no secret that big companies more often than not try to cut costs with no regard to the effects on the planet or even the consumer as long as it helps their bottom lines. That’s exactly why a few years ago a number of them started using plastic exfoliating beads in their facial and body scrubs – versus natural products like coffee grounds or nuts.
