I’ll admit it… I’m not immune to the Eat, Pray, Love effect. I read and relished the 2006 book by Elizabeth Gilbert. Then, when the movie came out in 2010, I rushed to see it (and was only slightly disappointed.) Eat, Pray, Love sold us all on the beauty of exploring new cultures, hope, and self-redemption. ...

Diana and I go way back. She and I met almost 15 years ago. I was a bright-eyed and bushy-tailed youngin’ starting out in Los Angeles, and she had just gotten her esthetician career off and running.

When I got engaged, I’d love to pretend that I was different… Annie Antiestablishment and all. But I wasn’t. Let’s be honest. I couldn’t WAIT to be married, and white’s one ...

The truth is, I have mixed feelings about Los Angeles. I suppose I’ve got baggage. See, L.A. was the dream that started in adolescence. L.A. was where my career would flourish and thrive, where I would come into my own as a triple-threat performer. I even spent summers there during high school, and I chose ...

You may be consuming more toxins than you think. Turns out our skin is our largest organ, and you better believe it’s absorbent! So we would all do well to be excessively persnickety about what we put on it. Seriously. There are so many unavoidable toxins, i.e. in the soil and the air, etc., that ...

I am a relisher of pivotal moments. I can tell you off the top of my head nearly all of the pivotal moments of my life – I collect them in my mind like post cards… mementos of when I seized the day with zealous enthusiasm, and where my life dramatically changed. I love the ...
