At the start of my career, every modeling agency I ever worked with would always start out by telling me I needed to lose weight. Now being a healthy, confident woman with a pretty good level of self-awareness, I just never understood why this was such a standard, across-the-board demand from model agents to models. At first my response to this precarious demand was a simple smile, a nod and I just wouldn't think too much of it because, well, for starters I'm actually pretty thin! I just happen to have *gasp* boobs and, get ready for it, a round bum! I always thought that was what makes women feel a little more womanly.

Summer is wonderful especially when it comes to the supermarket – with the endless varieties of fruit and vegetables. It’s the peak of the season for some of my favorite ingredients and one fruit that can be found almost anywhere this time of year are big plum juicy peaches, a family favorite at my home. They are low in calorie with only 40 calories for a medium peach and loaded with antioxidant Vitamin C.
I was recently asked to speak at a young professionals’ group and give insight about serving on nonprofit boards. While we hope that everyone who gets involved with a charity has some type of personal passion in the cause, there is also nothing wrong with using the opportunity to get business from it.

However, if you “do good,” we believe that you will “do well.” So if you truly want to get business from your nonprofit board members, here’s what you should do.
Sometimes you want a vacation in a glass, but fruity cocktail many times means tons of calories. I was recently at a Mexican restaurant a few days ago and saw a delicious looking jalapeño margarita – I love a spicy kick. I created this low-cal drink using fresh ingredients to kick away those winter blues!
