The Interview Where We Talk Cocktails, Love and Books #BrujaOnBooks

bruja on books is yolanda shoshana's radio show that explores women and writing

Earlier this week I was interviewed by the wonderful Yolanda Shoshana for her radio show, Bruja on Books. Yolanda is known as an erotica author, a spiritualist, and all around bad ass woman. On her show, Bruja on Books, we discuss how to build a great bar and what spirits to have on hand for the holidays, what my favorite cocktails are to drink at home and while I am out, and we cannot forget the best cocktails to serve when you’re feeling frisky. And since it is a show about books, I also give Yolanda my favorite cocktail books for you to enjoy.

A new episode of my radio show, ‪#‎BrujaOnBooks‬ has dropped. This episode I chat with Cari Bee from Busy Bee Blogger. We talk cocktails, love, and seduction. Me to the ow! (Yolanda Shoshana’s Google plus)

The Best Part Of Valentine’s Day Is The Ice Ceam

halo ice cream strawberry

Oh Valentine’s Day, the day for couples to love and… oh who are we kidding. Everyone either gets in a fight, or is single on the couch with a bowl of ice cream. Which, the latter really is not all that bad, if you choose the right ice cream that is.

Halo Top ice cream, the first ever, low calorie ice cream that’s non-gmo, 100% natural, high in protein and fiber, and sweetened with organic stevia to lower the sugar content! So it makes me a lot more ok to snuggle down with a House of Cards marathon and a bowl of strawberry flavor Halo Ice Cream. Hey, it is festive pink! So think of it as a Valentine’s Day gift to yourself.

single in america match dot com single edition media panel

To celebrate the launch of their 2014 Singles in America study Match.com assembled a panel along with celebrity guests, to debate the future of sex, dating and relationships this Saturday February 8th in NYC – and they live-streamed it all!

The panel was composed of Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger, Celebrity Blogger Perez Hilton, Dr. Helen Fisher – Chief Scientific Advisor for Match.com, Leading Sex Expert Dr. Emily Morse and Cosmopolitan’s Sex & Relationship Editor Anna Breslaw.

During the live stream, the panel talked sex, love, dating and findings from Match.com’s 2014 Singles In America study.

The only thing that surrised me about the Single In America survey was that only 31% of people are dating online. EVERYONE I KNOW that is single has an online profile. Sure, we want to rely on our friends to help set us up, but let’s be honest, have you seen who they are dating? lol

Check out the entire panel discussion in the video and tell me your take on the results!

Go Red For Women: 1 in 3 Faces Heart Disease #GoRed

Go Red For Women One In Three Heart Disease

On February 7th, BusyBeeBlogger.com plans to “Go Red” to help raise awareness of women’s heart disease. One in three women will die from this condition. Since it started, the Go Red campaign has been able to reduce heart disease in women by 34% and there’s been a 23% increase in awareness that heart disease is the #1 killer of women in the last 10 years.

On a personal note, I have family with heart conditions and high blood pressure is hereditary, this issue is especially close for this little SoCal pinup. I am joining Go Red to help keep the numbers from growing.

On February 7th, America is going RED for National Go Red Day, and I’d love for you to participate by encouraging everyone you know to wear red and post the photos on their social media using the hashtag #GoRed.

I know you have women in your life that you love, and together we can help raise awareness about this terrible disease to save their lives and other women’s lives everywhere.

What can YOU do to help reduce heart disease in yourself? Here are some easy tips.

- There are 1440 minutes in a day. Take just 30 of those and get some exercise & your risk of getting heart disease will decrease 30-40%.

- Heading out for a workout? Your body needs energy. Grab a banana or a low-fat yogurt. Your heart will thank you!

- Blueberries are so good for the heart. Send some to school with your little loved one today!

- Just 30 minutes of exercise a day can decrease your risk of heart disease by 30-40%. Try these quick at-home routines, your heart and your family will thank you!

- Making sandwiches for lunches? Cold cuts have very high sodium content, which increases the risk of heart disease.

- Salmon and albacore tuna can help lower cholesterol, which lowers your risk of getting heart disease. Who’s up for sushi tonight?

- When smokers quit smoking, their chance of getting heart disease is cut in half in just one year.

Let’s start to make heart disease history. Learn more about how you can decrese your chances of heart disease at www.goredforwomen.org

“Bless This Food – Ancient & Contemporary Graces From Around The World” – Review

Bless This Food Book Cover

I was sent a copy of Bless This Food: Ancient and Contemporary Graces from Around the World by Adrian Butash a few weeks ago. And I cannot praise this book enough. *I know you expect that in a book review, but trust me, this book is beautiful*

What started as me flipping through the pages just to see if something popped out, and to get a feel for the style, ended up as me sitting during all my free time reading graces through times, religions, and nations. To realize we all have the same desire of providing for our loved ones, and thanking the ones that brought us our meal, whether spiritual or human, is universal, is truly moving.

BLESS THIS FOOD presents 160 timeless mealtime blessings in an easy-to-use format for contemporary families, offering background on the traditions to provide context for the eloquent prayers and poems. Prayer has been carefully selected from each of the world’s major religions, as well as from ancient traditions and the work of great poets, thinkers, and activists-including Shakespeare, Milton, Gandhi, and Mother Teresa. Also included are two prayers in American Sign Language and the short prayer “bless this food” in nineteen languages.

You do not need to have a background in religion, or have traveled the world to appreciate and feel the long line of connection in Bless This Food: Ancient and Contemporary Graces from Around the World

This would make for a great Thanksgiving or housewarming hostess gift. Or as a gift for Christmas. I really cannot recommend this book enough. PLEASE, when you see it in the book store pick it up, and just flip through it. You will see just how great it is.
