For those mothers out there that have felt the pains of childbirth and pregnancy. You are to be saluted. Possibly the biggest gift our mothers gave to us is LIFE 2. Your mother raised you. […]

Mothers Day

Mothers Day

I used to be the type of person who never told others what I wanted as gifts for my birthday or Mother’s Day. My husband would ask me what I wanted and I would politely reply, “Oh, nothing. Don’t worry about it; I don’t need anything.” It’s true that many of us don’t really NEED anything. We live in a […]

Osama bin Laden is Gone, Unfortunately not Forgotten

Osama bin Laden is Gone, Unfortunately not Forgotten

I can’t, and probably never will be able to, sing “America the Beautiful” without choking up. Nine and a half years ago I stood, hand in hand, with hundreds of strangers in a Catholic church in New York City as we wept while singing that song. I had long since “fallen away” from the church, but on September 14th, 2001 […]

The wedding was watched by billions and the internet is all a […]

Earthquake Relief Fundraiser – Ganbatte Japan (Keep Going Japan)

Earthquake Relief Fundraiser – Ganbatte Japan (Keep Going Japan)

For the past few weeks, I have been working hard on a fundraiser for Tsunami devastated Japan- I have been saddened by the loss and destruction the Japanese people have had to face. I was even more bothered to hear about the children who have lost their entire families, have no care, no clothes, no food or milk.   I couldn’t […]

The “Race” to the Altar

The “Race” to the Altar

Now that royal wedding has finally happened, a prince married a mere commoner- to propel her into a path toward becoming queen, the question of differences within marriages came to my mind. In particular, I’m referring to the controversies that can arise when two people from completely different backgrounds choose to fight the norm and unite. One such union that […]

Calling all Canadian Women. Your Vote, Your Voice!

Calling all Canadian Women. Your Vote, Your Voice!

When you take the time to vote in this coming election (May 2, 2011), be mindful of your choice. It’s one thing to do your research and make an informed decision aligned with your values but it’s quite another to vote a certain way based on the opinions of your spouse, family and friends. Many of the women I know […]

Bigger is Better, or Less is More?

Bigger is Better, or Less is More?

American comedian Jerry Seinfeld was in England last week promoting an upcoming performance in the country. While appearing on a local morning television show, he was asked about the impending royal nuptials. Expecting the usual pleasantries, viewers were surprised to hear Seinfeld reply that he found the whole thing “absurd” and “a circus act”, lamenting all of the “fake outfits, […]

The Meaning of Wedding Traditions….and What to Watch for Friday

The Meaning of Wedding Traditions….and What to Watch for Friday

As Kate Middleton walks down the aisle on her father’s arm this Friday there are several wedding traditions which will seem familiar to all westerners (especially those from a Christian tradition) and some traditions that, well, aren’t really for us “commoners.” There are too many wedding traditions in western culture alone to mention all of them, but we shouldn’t adhere […]

Stereotyping- tattoos and more

Stereotyping- tattoos and more

I’ve always had a weakness for tattoos and an even greater weakness for the guys who rock them. I’m not referring to a ring around the bicep, tribal tattoo, I’m talking about men who are fully inked: arms, stomach, legs, you name it. I can’t pinpoint whether it’s the bad boy persona that I find hard to resist or if […]

Measure your Fashion: An Addiction for Shoes.

A cool $795 for to measure your fashion

Yes, I admit it, I have a small obsession with shoes. Not all shoes mind you, fabulous, sexy, high heels. The kind that are never comfortable but always make a   statement. I have tried very hard to stick to flat fabulous shoes( is there such a thing?)   but they never give me the confidence a pair of high heels -loveingly […]

Psychological Relief in a Global Crisis

Psychological Relief in a Global Crisis

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a major public health problem following a humanitarian disaster. The psychological health of a population is profoundly important to its recovery, yet it is often undervalued or ignored. Relief agencies and donors tend to rush in with the immediate, tangible needs such as temporary shelter and food (all very important), but the long term […]
