This is a flavorful recipe for Yuletide Spiced Wassail, which is a traditional winter beverage that you can make with or without alcohol. It contains lovely, aromatic spices and is a perfect choice for the winter holiday season. I prepare it every year at Yule for our holiday gatherings.
I make it with alcohol (I’m sure your NOT surprised…), but if you prefer going alcohol-free, simply substitute the wine for apple cider and don’t add the … [Continue Reading...]
If you've been following my work for a while, you probably know that I LOVE working with Oracle Cards. I've been learning Tarot for about 8 months now and honestly I'm finding Tarot study more stressful than enjoyable ... it's the interpretations ... so many possible meanings for each dang card!
I still use Tarot because I am a determined little bugger ... however, I'm not over the moon about them. On the other hand, I am over the moon about … [Continue Reading...]

Thanksgiving 2013 is about 14 days away... and I just made the final food choices for our holiday feast and thought I would share them with you.
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite days of the year ... probably because one of my daily practices is "gratitude" and Thanksgiving is a day that's all about gratitude. On top of that ... I love FOOD, FAMILY & FUN!
Creating delicious meals for myself and my loved ones is a sacred practice for me. … [Continue Reading...]
I'm sitting here thinking about the month of November. Depending on where you live in the world, November can be a brown, cold and dreary month as the last bits of solar warmth disappear but I think it holds quiet beauty. Most of us are already planning the fast approaching holiday season (Yikes - it starts in like 2 weeks!), which can really preoccupy us and move our focus from the magic that is inherent all around … [Continue Reading...]
Did you know that approximately 60% of what you put on your skin (lotions, soap, shampoo, makeup, etc.) gets ingested by your body ... and that most of the store bought brands are filled with toxic shit like chemicals, synthetics and carcinogens that can really harm your health?
I've been making my own skin and body care for about the last ten years ... but not anymore - nope. About a year ago I met a soul sister named Christine, we … [Continue Reading...]
In my opinion, Selenite is one of the essential eleven crystals that everyone MUST have!
It is known as an "emotional cleanser" for the mind, body, spirit and outer environment. I have chunks of it everywhere but especially concentrated in my two offices (see photo) and on my bedside table.
Selenite is an essential crystal in Feng Shui. It has one of the finest and highest spiritual vibrations and is often used at the Crown Chakra for … [Continue Reading...]
I was asked to be a part of The Radiant Mama Telesummit earlier this year by it's founder and host Amber Kuileimailani Bonnici. My instantaneous response to Amber was...
Whenever the words mama + radiance are used in the same sentence, I'm interested and totally in!
The telesummit was a huge success and reached 2300+ moms all over the world in 78 countries. Now ... how absolutely amazing is that? Amber sent me a … [Continue Reading...]
This is delish and enchanting mulled apple cider recipe is courtesy of a Domestic Goddess named Martha Stewart (you might have heard of her ... *giggle*) and is perfect for Samhain and Thanksgiving gatherings!
The Wheel of the Year is turning again, prompting leaves to fall off the trees and and paint the landscape in autumnal wonderland of yellow, orange and burgundy. Apples are in season and our palate instinctively turns more towards … [Continue Reading...]
The month of October marks the end of summer and the beginning of winter ... it's all about preparation and change. The weather dampens, temperatures drop, days shorten, leaves fall and expose branches, and the sky begins to turn gray here in the North East as the wheel of the year turns toward winter's deep sleep.
Samhain (pronounced "sow-in") is recognized on October 31st and is the last of three harvest festivals. Other names for Samhain are: … [Continue Reading...]
