Working Out with Yoga Today (AKA: Yoga Galore)

Working out is not something I’ve been able to do persistently. Perhaps you’ve been on the same boat, and if you do you might be like me: fondly remembering days long ago when you actually did workout, felt better, and felt pleased about your weight. That’s something I can remember happening vividly about two years… Continue reading Working Out with Yoga Today (AKA: Yoga Galore)

Brass Clothing: My First Maxi Dress

Yes, it’s true. Us 5’2″ girls can also wear Maxi dresses. I’ll be honest when I say that maxi dresses have never been something that I owned because it seemed like with my stature they will look like I’m swimming in a cloak, but this purchase really changed my mind.

Updated Skincare Routine: All Kypris All the Time – August 2016

While traveling in Israel and Italy this July I’ve experienced another very low skincare moment when I woke up with a huge rash all over my face…And than had that same reaction a week later. Funny enough, I also experienced some of my best skincare moments ever when I woke up with a glowing complexion, also twice.… Continue reading Updated Skincare Routine: All Kypris All the Time – August 2016

August Shopping List: Planning My Purchases

August is a time of year in which I usually kick into gear, since summer vacation is mostly behind me and it’s time to start thinking about going back to work. Time to think about developing new and (hopefully, for the sake of my students) interesting curriculum.  Time to think about the routines I want… Continue reading August Shopping List: Planning My Purchases
