Faux Fur Buyers – BEWARE!

Friday, November 6th, 2009

I choose not to eat or wear animals.* When I purchase clothing, shoes or accessories, I carefully read the label to be sure that ALL the materials are man-made. If I see any traces of leather or fur, it immediately goes back on the shelf. So you can imagine my shock and outrage when I […]

Cystic Fibrosis Foundations

Monday, November 2nd, 2009

The hubby & I are planning to attend , D as a player and me as the cheering rail bird. As part of the entry process we have been asked to write a blog about our favorite charity, which I think is a wonderful idea. Two charities close to my heart are the Cystic Fibrosis […]

New Vegetarian Restaurant – The Veggie Grill

Wednesday, September 30th, 2009

Yesterday, the hubby and I decided to have lunch at the grand opening of a new vegetarian restaurant, The Veggie Grill. Considering there isn't an over abundance of vegetarian restaurants in Hollywood (yes, it's hard to believe), we had high hopes. Since The Veggie Grill is conveniently located next to Trader Joe's, we decided to […]

Hollywood Prop 8 Protest March

Wednesday, May 27th, 2009

Last night Deutsch and I decided to take part in the march against Prop 8. In the last U.S. election, Californians voted to pass Proposition 8. In short, this Prop bans the right for same-sex marriages. Now if I have my facts correct, yesterday the Supreme Court ruled to uphold the constitutional amendment banning same-sex […]

Another Car Chase in L.A.

Tuesday, February 10th, 2009

Apologies for my lack of description for my Day 5 post yesterday. Usually I finish up & publish my day’s post at night before I go to bed. Last night I was distracted by the not-so-riveting white Bentley L.A. slow car chase, not driven by Chris Brown*, then not by DJ Khaled**, but by someone […]

South Beach Diet / Phase 1: Day 4/14

Monday, February 9th, 2009

Day 4 It was a good day. The two highlights were the trip to the Farmer’s Market and our dinner. Today was grocery shopping day. We decided to purchase our veggies from the Farmer’s Market instead of the grocery store. It always feels good buying and eating something that is locally grown. We also like […]

South Beach Diet Phase 1: Day 1/14

Friday, February 6th, 2009

Well, overall it has been a somewhat successful day, no cheating. However, exercise was a complete failure. I hope to do better tomorrow. As you read my menu for today, you will notice the use of soy meats. This is my choice, as I don't eat meat. South Beach allows most, if not all meats. […]
