"Should I Vax, or Should I Go?"

Vaccinations can be a controversial topic But they effect us all, so we should learn to hear each other's views. Whether that's: 

  1. An inflammation scientist in my dance class told me the flu is on a STEEP rise this year, and she's a huge fan of the flu vaccine, or ...
  2. The Weston Price Foundation released this quiz about vaccinations (which I'm keen to fact-check)

Personally I hadn't gotten the shot in many years, because I remember it...

Entrepreneurship 101

This summer I helped my daughter London, and her cousin Raio learn a few basics about starting a business. We had FOUR lemons in the house, so decided to turn lemons ... into cash. How?

Whenever possible, use materials you already own

Dry Scalp?

I'm going DEEPER into the "wellness" theme, to simplify & purify life - from the inside out, and from head to toe. For example - when's the last time YOU thought of the hair follicles on your SCALP?

(Never? Oh right ... there's SKIN on my HEAD, needing TLC too!) 







I recently learned of the "Japanese Head Spa" treatment, that claims to:

  1. Remove oil and product build-up 
  2. Exfoliate dead skin/ ...

Feel Pressure to FIND A JOB!?

Remember that FIRST summer after graduation ... that internal pressure to "GET A JOB!"  I was asked to join this panel of career coaches to advise a recent graduate - and offered these insights - which apply to ALL of us:

  • 11:15 - "Think globally, but act locally
  • 16:42 - Take initiative to share your voice

Where Balance Begins

If you experience imbalance in your body, it could be generating from... your FEET.


I recently felt discomfort in my left foot. So I found a shoe store with an Aetrex Foot Scanner - which "combines 3D imaging, machine learning and precise sensor technology to capture data," assessing how we distribute our weight.


I stepped on the scanner, and adjusted my sweatpants for the cameras. (Apparently my Care Bear socks did not...

Does Your Fascia Need Smoothing!?

A friend of mine recently told me about The "Fascia Blaster" - invented by Ashley Black to smooth the body's fascia, that can get tight, bunched, and appear dimpled. (As seen in the diagram below, from AshleyBlackGuru.com)

Curious, I researched a bit more about Ashley's "business origin story." In short, Ashley was using her prototypes to help athletes with sports injures, and soon discovered that they also helped smooth the appearance of cellulite... (So while it has...
