Dr. Bita Bagheri – Orange County Dermatologist

There’s a funny thing in life called fate. I met Bita during our college days at Penn. I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I lived in a house with 4 other women in West Philly, Bita being one of them. Bita is an enigma. Photographic memory. Terrible driver. Very much like […]

Orchids 101

I’ve always loved orchids, but was always intimidated by them. Last year, a neighbor gave me the most gorgeous Phalaenopsis orchid (the most common variety you see at grocery stores), stuck it in a southwest facing window nook and it bloomed for nearly a year! I thought “Self, you’re good at this!” Then….I stumbled upon […]

DIY hanging bromeliad

I saw this at a very fancy nursery about 6 months ago. Instead of plunking down $60 for it, I took a bromeliad I already had and used some decorative moss and twine to replicate the hanging beauty.

I love Brussels sprouts. Please move on if you don’t…b/c this post is all about them and some uber-nerd techniques that I’m testing in the garden.

A beginner’s guide to hydroponics

Ok, who’s ready to go on this hydroponic adventure with me? I’ve been working ridiculous hours the past couple of years and have completely neglected my veggies! So I’m on a mission to restore them and get a greenhouse to protect them from the rabbits, rats, and snails! I’ve spent the better part of the […]

Bella Luna Yacht Charter :: So Cal luxury

We were headed to a wedding in Santa Barbara and decided to take a slight detour to visit some friends on their gorgeous yacht, Bella Luna. They’re located in the Channel Islands Harbor and host guests for day excursions for fishing, whale watching, and up close and personal tours of the beautiful Channel Islands. While […]

Using Saltwash to create a vintage beachy look

When we first moved to this house, I decided to paint a bathroom orange. Why orange? I don’t know why. It just felt right. And now…it feels oh so wrong. So…I’m on a mission. Naturally, I start on Craigslist to find the perfect vanity. But there’s something about this glaze that wasn’t sitting well with me. […]

I first met Amy Ruth at the November 2015 Trustee’s Council of Penn Women conference where she was sitting next to me at the opening lunch. When you […]

Katlyn Grasso, 23 year old Founder of GenHERation

I felt a strong presence enter the tiny shop….and I turned […]
