5 New Year’s Resolutions You Will Want to Keep

New Year's resolutions may as well be called next year's punishments. It's one of the reasons we all binge eat and drink over the holidays. We try to squeeze in as many treats as we can before the ball drops. Then-- we wake up the next morning, hungover from days of eggnog, meat, cheese and cookies. We tend to dread our first bowl Fiber One of cereal in the new year.

How to Have Your Self a Coastal Christmas

So while many of you are used to having a white Christmas in the snow, you can also have a coastal Christmas too, just like us FL flamingos down here. To allude to a coastal Christmas in any weather, you can follow some of the details of coastal trends. For example, you can take from the standard ...

Maybe we don’t get white snow, but we do have white sand. “How can you get excited for the Holiday season without snow?” many of our out of state friends ask us Miamians. “If the palm trees have Christmas lights, we know it’s coming,” my husband loves to say. I grew up on a coastline. …

Celebrities: Why Do We Love Them As Much As We Hate Them?

We watched Britney Spears fight through her coming of age identity crisis. We are watching Miley Cyrus' and Justin Bieber's right now. I think Gwen Stephanie is hustling a little harder for money since her divorce. And Spears lost a lot too after hers. Sure, I guess celebs do have their struggles and do things like eat food. But, they get to do it with lots of money in their hands.

I have no idea how celebrities really live, but this is how I see it. I picture a Kim Kardashian with big sunglasses on, coming out of a diamond car… I’ve never seen her in jeans, only in hugging outfits with fancy petite heels. There’s probably personal trainers hovering around her like bees, giving her …

After all, I might still be in bed, if it weren't for my own mental health awareness.

Surfing Everyday vs. Not Surfing Everyday

Surfing is collaborative and humbling. First, you must recognize how a wave is working. You can't change a wave; you must work with it. The routine involves a schedule according to the tides and daylight, as much as it requires dedication, obedience and loyalty to the coast's whims and wishes. This is perhaps a main cause of abandoning "normal" life for surf life: with surf, one's life automatically becomes fulfilling.

With the shimmering beach just a few hundred feet from our honeymoon bungalow, we surfed everyday–usually twice a day. It became a steady and sturdy reason for living. When we weren’t horseback riding, zip lining or eating, we were either surfing or checking the surf. The habit of continuously trekking down to a beach access to check …

Why Am I Back in Miami? And Why Do I Still Have Dreadlocks?

It's so hard to leave paradise ...

After our nine day escapade/honeymoon in Costa Rica, it’s basically impossible to understand what we are doing back in Miami, in a speed-strung, also tropical, but relentlessly demanding and high-maintenance city. Instead of monkeys teasing me with their hyper howls, the metro rails shriek me out of my sleep in the morning. I can’t wake up and rush to check the …
