History, Coffee, Ice Cream, and your typical Spanish pastries. Sounds pretty darn delightful doesn't it? Well, it was - and you probably should have been there. Being Saturday afternoon after a busy week of being awesome. My energy was lagging a tad(even though it comes naturally, it still can take it out of a person) [...]

Gastromarkets. These concepts are a rave around the globe at the moment, popping up all over the show. For darn good reason too. Here in Palma de Mallorca, it is just the same.

Healthy treat anyone? A day with my dehydrator.

Healthy treat anyone? A day with my dehydrator.

Putting healthy and whole food in my body is just something I can not live without. If you don't love your body, it ain't gonna love you back.  True story. I am a huge believer in treating myself and my body as good - if not better as I treat other people.  It is so [...]
