I had the best time hanging out with Dana Claudet of The Tao of Dana and Jordan Reid of Ramshackle Glam to talk designing your dream space with limited resources.

Laurie David’s new cookbook, co-written with long-time collaborator Kirstin Uhrenholdt, is all about inspiring parents and kids to take control of what they eat by making it themselves. I’m obviously also a huge believer that healthy eating habits begin by cooking at home and taking agency over the ingredients you put in your body. It was great chatting with her and Jennifer Perillo, editor of Working Mom Magazine, about tactics for doing just that when you’re a busy parent.

So I was thrilled to hangout with Coach Brendan Moore and VROU Women founder Kathryn Moos to discuss some baby steps for fitting everyday fitness and nutrition practices into your busy workweek. They talk about morning routines and what you can do in place of expensive gym memberships and exercise classes to stay in shape (for free!).

Britta is the resident skin expert at Green Beauty Team and a practicing health coach. She became interested in skin care through her own experiences with acne at a young age, and became drawn to the idea of healing inside and out, using non-invasive methods and ingredients from the earth.… Continue Reading
