Dear Readers,

As a matchmaker, I can easily say that over-analytical behavior is hands down the number one crime in dating. There’s no place for cerebral decision-making in matters of the heart.

Marina on a Dime

Written by

A few years ago I moved a client from her home to a newer condo. She needed to downsize and simplify her life. The condo was really transformed into a great space. Recently that same client contacted me to work on another, smaller space. This time the budget was pennies in comparison to the last project. In fact it was less than $3000. I was lucky in the fact that I knew her style and taste and had a few leftover pieces to work with.

Vegan Double Chocolate Avocado Cake

Written by

“When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” That old familiar saying tells you exactly what to do when a hefty lot of negative is flying your way. No one tells you what to do when you have eight or nine perfectly ripe avocados on hand, and we all know that the worst thing you can do with perfectly ripe avocados is let them go to waste. I had this figurative batch of “lemons” in one hand and a bag of cocoa powder in the other. The logical thing to do was make a cake.

5 exercises to improve your balance

Written by

As a senior fitness specialist for many people over the age of 65, I always incorporate exercise to improve balance into sessions. That's because each year, more than 1/3 of people over the age of 65 fall. Injuries from falls, such as hip fractures, are serious and prevention is the key.

A Room with a View - Before & After

Written by

A few years ago I was contracted to work on a house in the hills. The residence hadn’t been touched in over 20 years and with that came all the usual suspects. It was full of the 1990’s design aesthetic; Berber carpet, a mauve and sea foam color palette along with travertine furnishings. I knew I had my work cut out for me. It was a challenge.

Top 8 First Date Don’ts

Ahhhh...cookies....ice cream....cakes...scones...just some of the many "treats" we give ourselves permission to eat. "I deserve this, I've been working hard"...."It's a special day"..."Oh a little bit won't hurt anything"; these internal thoughts fill our minds like the jelly filling of a doughnut.

Great Free Tools from the City of LA

If you’re a resident of Los Angeles, you probably know the LADWP (Los Angeles Department of Water and Power) from the utility bill that comes in your mail. But you might not know about a couple of neat tools that the LADWP provides - absolutely free!

Financial planning is more than just a good idea. Research has consistently shown that people who have financial plans -- and who work with financial advisors -- save and invest far more and are nearly twice aslikely to feel on track or ahead of schedule in preparing for major financial goals, such as retirement.1

Room Makeover - Make a Wish

Giving Back

A few years ago, a good friend of mine was a volunteer at Make A Wish. She was given the task of doing a room makeover for a lovely teen girl here in LA. Unfortunately, she didn’t know where to start. My phone rang late one night asking for my help. Without any hesitation, I jumped at the chance to help my friend create a new bedroom for the more than deserving teen.

Recipe - Chocolate Sabayon Puddings

Written by

Have you ever had something at top of mind, or at least in your list of to do’s, and for some reason, it just never gets done? That’s what happened during most of January. In December, we filled a friend’s birthday cake with a caramelized pineapple and ginger sabayon that was inspired by two previous successful sabayon flavors. If you’re not familiar with sabayon, don’t think we’ve gone all fancy on you.You too can pull together a sabayon. If you do it in a timely fashion, maybe you will make it to the party with dessert in hand.

The biggest challenge in dating today is that people expect to find their version of perfection…or at least someone who totally fulfills their ‘list of requirements’. We’re a culture who likes to check, check, check things off our list. The problem is, that’s all backwards. Of course you need to make sure that you’re meeting people within your range of fundamental priorities. But at the end of the day, it boils down to the feeling, not the list. When you feel that indescribably delicious chemistry with someone, I guarantee you’re not going to care about those extra pounds / the color of her hair / his height / her degree / his job, etc.. You’re NOT. You’re going to be so happy that you finally connected with your person that you will just deal with the pieces that aren’t a perfect fit.

Recipe for Twice Baked Eggs and Potatoes

Written by

It was time to try another recipe from the blogosphere. This time, it would be potatoes. A large number of food bloggers are aware of the number one place to go for unique variations of the typical tuber, and that would be the home of The Daily Spud. She’s an Irish lass who can wax poetic about the potato. And wine, cheese, Irish traditions and amazing desserts. When she first featured this runny egg laced over a fluffy baked potato, it got a lot of well deserved attention. With a couple of potatoes on hand and a few interesting ingredients in the fridge, it was time to give it a try.
