Decompress At Your Desk
Sitting at your desk all day can build up stress in your neck and shoulders leading to bad posture, headaches and back pain. Take about 5 minutes out of each day to perform these gentle shoulder rolls and neck stretches. You will immediately feel refreshed when you are done!

  • Engage your core to sit up taller, alleviate the hunch back look and strengthen your abs and back.
  • Perform 10 shoulder rolls forward and 10 backwards. Try to use the largest range of motion position.
  • Next, perform 10 shoulder shrugs by bringing your shoulders up by your ears, and then pressing them down and away as far as they will go.
  • Now sit up tall and pretend to be in a forearm plank position. With arms bent at 90-degrees, open your chest as wide as possible and then bring hands back to starting position. Open and close “the book” 10 times, squeezing shoulder blades together as your chest opens up.
  • Lastly stretch out your neck. Tilt your head to the right, and reach left arm out to the left. Repeat on the opposite side

You should feel much better already!

The link between food and fashion is stronger than you may think.  In fact, colorful fruits can channel fashion trends.  Yes, you read the last sentence correctly.  By taking a cue from healthy foods, you may be dressing yourself for fashion success!

 I adore spring because the weather is perfect and there is an amazing selection of gorgeous fruits. Mint leaves, perfect peaches, ripe mangos and coconuts are in full form.  And ironically these pastel colors are some of the hottest for spring.  Major design houses such as Luis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs and Oscar de la Renta all reflected beautiful peach, yellow and mint green hues that reminded me of my favorite foods.
