Review Wednesday: Skechers Go Walk shoes

For our recent trip to Amsterdam I wanted comfy walking shoes. I have tennis shoes but I wanted something else. I bought the Skechers Go Walk shoes. I have a couple of other pairs of Skechers and like them. The first time I put them on I couldn’t believe how good they felt. They are […]


Let the cleanse begin

I recently signed up for a 7-day super cleanse with Lory Benson Pilates.  The cleanse actually started on January 14. But the timing wasn’t right for me. I needed a time where I knew I could dedicate seven days to this green smoothie cleanse. So I start the cleanse today. Today and tomorrow I will […]

Having fun with shoes

I love shoes. I love fun shoes, cute shoes, pretty shoes, comfy shoes, sassy shoes. Most of the time when it comes to shoes I believe in fashion over comfort. But not always. If I know I am going to walking around in the city (San Francisco) a lot I have to have comfy shoes […]


It’s feet week

The theme for this week … is feet! I personally think feet are one of the ugliest parts of our bodies. I would say I have a foot unfettish. My feet are super ticklish. So I hate having them touched. Probably about six years ago I decided to treat myself to a mani/pedi. I had […]
