Get Rid of Spring Fever


Spring is in the air. For me, spring means flowers, sun, a little bit wind, new beginnings, challenges and goals. Spring my favourite season because in spring we overcome a difficult winter and spring is like medicine for us after the harsh winter. There is one more reason why we love spring: Spring is a messenger of summer. And, who doesn't like summer? And of course spring brings us love and spectacular fashion. But there is one little problem: Spring Fever. We’ve all had spring fever. Even to the point where it makes you feel ill. But don't despair. With some simple solutions we can get rid of the spring fever. Here are my solutions:

Communicating What You Want


From the Pueblos to Neuro Linguistic Programing (NLP), there are many schools of thought which teach that hoping for things is counterproductive. It’s suggested, admission that whatever you want is not already present actually makes it harder for it to become present. The doubt and fear included in hope actively fight against the underlying intent. Instead, imagine a reality where you have what you want. Make the reality as real and detailed as you can; let yourself emotionally, and sensationally feel how you would in that context. Then add a feeling of gratitude and appreciation to that moment. Those emotional connections will help transfer what you want to this present moment. After that, don't worry about it.

Finding Your Passion


I’ve been feeling that the past two and a half years of my life has happened for a really big reason. I truly believe that something bigger out there, or the Universe is crafting something for me and it’s up to me as to how I decide to pursue it. It’s scary to think that your life is filled with endless possibilities, and you never really know where you're going to be even a year or two from now. The only way is to trust your instincts, and truly listen to your heart.

Gluten Free Lime and Mulberry Cake


This recipe is an alteration of the a traditional lemon cake served in Paris. I have tweaked it over time to make it gluten free and a little more fruity. It is also delicious with a lemon glaze over the top or berry sorbet on the side, but I think I prefer it as simple tea cake. You can switch out the mulberries for whatever type of berry you prefer, but if they are frozen make sure they are defrosted first.

Off to the Woods


There are times in life when the world seems like it is spinning a bit too fast and we’re gradually being left far behind, and for some reason things stop making the proper sense and start dancing a strange out-of-step dance. That’s quite normal, since everyone passes through troubling moments sometimes, but the way each one of us manages to take things back under control is the main point of living a lovely and excitingly free life.

Homemade Vegetable Stock


I make all of my own vegetable stock. Being from New England, we have a relatively long winter, and that means a lot of soup. Plus soup is a great way to stretch any vegetables that you may have left at the end of the week. Buying prepared stock from the grocery store is expensive, and you can never be sure what exactly is in the box. Luckily, making your own is so easy!

6 signs that you're relying on a sugar daddy/sugar mamma


If you let others control your money, you're leaving your financial destiny in their hands Learning how to step into your money power and creating financial independence for yourself does wonders for your self-esteem. I truly believe that nothing strengthens your core power and self-confidence like learning how money works and how to make and manage money. I went through a divorce in my twenties and although I had always been very independent, I must admit that I worried about making it on my own. So many of my friends enjoyed two household incomes, and I was about to embark on a solo money life. Would I make it?
