Its finally sweaters and knit beanies time of year in San Diego. We don’t get a lot of this in San Diego so it’s very exciting. A guy in my building saw me in the elevator and he says to me, “ you must be so excited to wear that beanie, “ I laughed and said yesss I am, I don’t get this often. #goodweatherproblems
The beautiful @storyofstyle asked me to join her her comparison of LOVE vs ARRANGED MARRIAGE!
1️⃣ LOVE or ARRANGED
We married with LOVE ❤️ 2️⃣ How did you guys meet?
We met at the Del Mar Races opening day after party in 2015. I was out with some girlfriends having a nice girls day out and he was with his guy friends. He had relocated to California from Boston a year before. I knew a couple of the guys he was with. We ended up going to a hotel party and danced all night. I didn’t think much of it. Then I invited them to my Birthday that following weekend. He came and made me a traditional Greek dessert, Rizogolo. He asked me out on “business meeting” the following Wednesday and the rest is history as they say.
3️⃣How many years of marriage?
December will be 1 year. We legally got married December 30th, 2017, but had our actual Wedding June 16th, 2018.
4️⃣What is the secret of a happy and long lasting marriage?
I always look to my mom and sister when it comes to a happy marriage. My parents were madly in love with each other and my sister is also very much in love with her husband. I would say the secret to a happy marriage is trust and compromise. I also think you should never stop dating. Always say thank you, even for little things. One other great advice I was given, is to never say no to sex no matter how tired you are 😊. #LOVEvsARRANGEDmarriage
“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty. “
This rings true for many of us in our lives. People always see you from the outside and think your life has always been perfect. They see an image and think they know you, but no one really knows how much you’ve had to go through, the sacrifices you’ve made to get to this happy place. They look at your life and envy you and think wow she’s so lucky, instead of taking into consideration things you’ve been through. The pain, heartaches, loss, trials after trials until you’ve made it to this place. The beauty that exists, has taken years to achieve!

Woke up in Monterey to this beautiful water. It got me thinking of all those being affected by the wild fires in Malibu and Calabasas. It took me back to many years ago when Malibu got hot pretty hard. Praying for all who have lost their lives and praying for all who fighting to keep people and their homes from burning down 🙏🏻🙏🏻
SF is such a magical place! This past Saturday I got to experience something so wonderful. I rode my bike across the Golden Gate Bridge. Such an incredible experience. Probably one of the best experiences I’ve had in a long time. I did 13.2 miles. Pretty unbelievable. It’s such a great workout and a once in a lifetime experience.
Happy Wellness Wednesday! I’m sorry I’ve been slacking a bit on posting, it’s been a bit hectic. Let’s talk about our elections. I’m so proud of all the firsts that came out of these elections. We did it. We made some beautiful history. It’s amazing to see people go out in record numbers and vote. This is a privilege that we shouldn’t take for granted. Some people who didn’t vote told me it really didn’t effect their life so they didn’t see it as necessary. That’s a shame. We have to look at the big picture and our children and their future.
This country made me more proud yesterday. You should always vote. There are so many people out there who don’t get this privilege.
What are you most proud of in this election?
Every Sunrise is an invitation to brighten someone’s day. October has been one of those trying months. A bit stressful. October seems to always be a tough month. I’m not sure what it is. If it’s that transition of summer being over and the holidays not here just yet. Looking forward to a brighter November.
“If only I could make him understand. I just don't see things the way he does. I just don't see how a world that makes such wonderful things could be bad. Look at this stuff, isn't it neat? Wouldn't ya think my collection's complete! Wouldn't you think I'm the girl, Girl who has everything. Look at this trove, treasures untold. How many wonders can one cavern hold? Looking around you'd think, Sure, she's got everything! I've got gadgets and gizmos aplenty. I have whoozits and whatzis galore. You want thingamabobs? I've got twenty. But who cares? No big deal, I want more.”- Ariel
Isn’t that the truth! Happy Halloween Week Monday
Halloween still remains one of my favorite holidays. There’s just something amazing about being someone else for a night. I’m pretty proud of this years costume. It’s made by yours truly. I had wanted to do Ariel for a few years now. I hope everyone had a fun night celebrating.
It’s not the most glamorous shot, but it’s when I feel my very best! Lifting gives me all kinds of warm and fuzzy feels. It’s not easy getting up some mornings, but I’m always happy I did. My mornings feel incomplete without my workouts. What gets you going every Saturday?
What’s better then a comfortable chair, an oversized comfortable chair 👩🏻⚕️😃 I absolutely love heels, but I just can’t do it anymore. They destroy my feet. The perfect, pointy pair of 4-inch heels can make any outfit, but with this style comes so much suffering. High heels have the stigma of being bad for health and comfort, but this barely stops us women from wearing them occasionally and often daily. We make all kinds of sacrifices for foot fashion, but at what price? Studies have shown that these high heel shoes can be costly in more ways than one, taking their toll on your spine, hips, knees, ankles and feet, while altering your posture and gait.
So how can you avoid this!
1. Try not to wear heels for too long.
2. Stretch your leg muscles before and after wearing heels.
3. Try not to wear more than 2 inches.
4. Avoid the pointy stilettos.
5. Buy shoeshiner the afternoon when your feet are at their largest.
6. Buy shoes with leather insoles to prevent slipping.
7. Buy different heels and alternate them often.
One of my all time favorite costumes that I made was this poison Ivy costume! Those who know me can tell you I’m not the craftiest person in the world. In-fact, my brother was shocked the other day when he saw me working on this years costume, but there’s something about Halloween that brings out a little creative side to me. I just love putting costumes together. What brings out your creative side?
