Prescription: Sleep

Please excuse my brief hiatus, but after three weeks in Melbourne I am now back in Singapore and ready to pick up where I left off. I had such an amazing time away and found myself falling in love with Melbourne all over again. Needless to say, the vacation was packed with activities and now […]

The only soda you need

No I am not talking about the sugary bubbly soda. I am talking about baking soda, also known as sodium bicarbonate. This powdery stuff can be used in baking, but I use it in so much more! As mentioned in previous posts, I don’t use chemicals of any kind in my home. Baking soda has […]

Tall glass of water

Growing up if I ever had an ailment I would go to my mom and her response would be, without fail, “drink some water.” Whether it be a headache, stomach ache, or even boredom, water was always the saving grace. Still to this day, my body tells me immediately when I haven’t had enough water. […]

Yoga is hot stuff

While in Melbourne I found a Bikram Yoga studio offering new members unlimited classes for $30 for one month. I simply couldn’t wait to get started. I took my very first Bikram class when I first moved to Melbourne and I have been hooked since. If you are not aware Bikram is yoga completed in […]

V is for Vinegar

This weeks favorite is probably sitting in your cabinet forgotten and only used every once in a while in your baking. I am talking about vinegar! I use both apple cider vinegar and white distilled vinegar equally as much.  I started using vinegar because it is an environmentally friendly option as opposed to cleaners. I […]

Laughter is the best medicine

This year the Melbourne International Comedy Festival runs from March 26 to April 20. We went to a show last night based on a recommendation. The guy was hilarious. I understand Australian’s love their profanity, but he wasn’t too bad. I have a strict no profanity tolerance as I find it not only inappropriate but […]

Do what you love

This may be a personal post, but so be it. We left Friday night for Melbourne, Australia and have been busy the past few days with family. Now settled in the CBD (Central Business District) for the next three weeks, I hope to share some highlights of this fabulous city. Seriously, Melbourne is one of […]


High intensity interval training, or HIIT, is all the rage in the fitness world today. Rightfully so, this type of training is quick and effective and one of the best ways to get in shape. HIIT basically incorporates any workout activity with alternating levels of intensity performed in short bursts. The benefits of HIIT are […]

Back to basics

Today I met with some girlfriends for lunch and we started talking about health and nutrition. Two hours later, I came to the realization that other people may not be as health obsessed as I am. Granted, I am the first to admit that I am a health and nutrition nerd. I can spend hours […]

Healthy online shopping

Quick post on Wednesday favorites. Maybe you have heard of this website, but in case you haven’t check out and be prepared to spend at least an hour checking out the items. I use this site to purchase items either too expensive here in Singapore, or items not available. The deals are wonderful and […]
