French Food in the Desert?

While all my friends and family were celebrating Valentine's Day over romantic candlelit dinners, roses, champagne, and fancy gifts with their sweethearts, I celebrated mine with Ryann Doyle, my lead stylist and special projects manager, Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson, and Neal Donald Walsch at the Celebrate Your Life Conference in sunny Scottsdale, AZ.

Casual, Healthy, and Hearty Food with Personality

Leigh, Ryann, and I with Chef Tony. I was at Richa Badami's Pause for Power luncheon recently at The Tower Club and met Chef Tony's of Bethesda there.  The minute he mentioned the word chef and Mediterranean food, my eyes lit up.  We know how much I love food, especially Mediterranean inspired dishes, so I decided to try his cooking out for myself. My team and I gave Tony a visit for…

Five Things That My Voluptuous Chihuahua Has Taught Me.

Nini vacationing in Florida for the winter. Everyone who knows me well also knows about Nini, my beloved and full-figured Chihuahua.  The two of us have been together many years and in that time I have learned so much from her!  She helps calm me down when I am anxious and stressed. She is my little stable rock. I feel safe and at ease with her around me.  Even though…

Top Five Love Life and Sleep Killers?

Today’s blog topic is my favorite: the bedroom, the most neglected space in the home.  This is the space where many people think they can be untidy and messy because no one sees it.  But to me, this is the space that we should take care of because it brings out our sensuality.  Your bedroom should feel inviting and exciting for passionate love-making, but at the same time promote calmness for a…

tu-anh’s “What Not To Do” on New Years Day

Do you like my flower arrangement? Yay! I am done with my "tu-do" list in preparation for the new year. When that clock strikes midnight tonight, where will you be?  Will you be drunk at some party kissing a stranger?  Or out with a bunch of depressed singles?  In my Vietnamese culture, we believe that what you do on the 1st of the year reflects your whole year.  Below I…

My “tu-dos” before New Years Eve!

Loved my spa day at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando and will recreate my own spa at home tonight :) As promised, I am sharing with you my progress regarding the list from last week's post. I am about 95% done with everything on the list.  The two things that I have to work on finishing up are writing thank you notes and the relationship check ups.  Obviously that department will take time…

What tu-anh Will Do Before 2014

Stretching outside of beach house #34 of Castle Hill Inn.  I am all about creating balance.  Doing yoga and meditation this past year has helped me tremendously and I will continue to do more of that in 2014. Can you believe it?  Another year has passed.  As we say goodbye to 2013, here is another opportunity for a fresh start. The next two weeks for me will be all about…

How To Be A Happy Man

This image of David by Michelangelo in my eyes represents a strong, solid, confident man comfortable in his own skin and ready to face life's battles.  That, to me is masculinity and that is very attractive. Enough blog posts for women. Since more than 50% of my readers are male, this one is just for you.  (And for my female readers, let's share this with the men in your life!)…

It’s Amazing…All That I Can Do

This photo I took at Myconian Luxury Villa in Mykonos this past August is a representation of my dream life. Life has been an interesting journey for the past 7 years for me - lots of growth, lots of challenges great and not so great, lots of surprises, and a whole lot of powerful breakthroughs at work and at home.  This is my time for self-discovery.  I am open to…
