Restaurant week is a great opportunity to try a restaurant that might normally be out of your price range or a dish that you would not usually get. DC’s impressive list of participating restaurants was so intimidating! When my friend Vivi asked if I wanted in on a group dinner, I was relieved that she, a DC native, chose the restaurant instead of me.
She chose Floriana, an Italian spot in Dupont Circle. In true blogger fashion, we took some shots of my burgundy and white ensemble before dinner. Thank you Dani for taking these photos!
I wore this pretty rose striped organza dress to my friend’s wedding in Grand Rapids last weekend. It monsooned, so I didn’t get a chance to snap outfit photos at the actual time of the event. Since I received so many compliments on the dress last weekend I put it back on to share with you.
Although I may have Israeli blood, and I’ve had 28 years on this earth, the heat still gets to me like any other human being. As I imagine most of you are like me, staying inside in the air conditioning is not an option when there is so much to do and people to see!
Today, let’s talk about ways to survive the heat. Because it doesn’t seem like the heat is going to break any time soon. Deal with it, or be miserable, right?
Summer weekends are the best. Traveling to see friends for weddings, drinking at the pool, eating delicious brunches, you name it. But sometimes I go a little to far and the overindulging makes me feel like a bloated balloon that could propel itself to the moon (TMI? sorry.)
As I am getting older I am a lot more in tune with my body. From my years of weekend eating, diet-book reading (it is a bizarre hobby of mine) and personal experience, I’ve figured out some tried and true ways to beat your bloat. Maybe you didn’t drink enough water, didn’t eat enough greens, not enough sleep, too much alcohol, or didn’t take the time to “go.”
When I find myself in a pinch, these are the bloat beating tips that work for me.
