I’ve always wanted to go on a yoga retreat, so when my mom called and asked if I wanted to join her next summer for a week of yoga, spa treatments, and organic meals at Haramara Retreat in Mexico, I said, “Um, yeah, I think I can swing that.” Described as a place “where Robinson Crusoe […]

“Paris is always a good idea,” said Audrey Hepburn and almost anyone else who has been to Paris. The city of Light and/or Love makes for a pretty good Weekly Wanderlust, no matter the season. The architecture, the food, the art, the cobblestone streets, the people. What more could you ask for? Give me a few […]
