Lifestyle: Health and Aging Muscles

The past three months or even more, I’ve been on the go – working long hours, not sleeping well, nor eating healthy, and exercise has been put on hold, unless you consider driving back and forth to the country as exercise.  I realize just the other day while at Trader Joe’s, how unhealthy I feel, […]

Relationship of sorts – Myth or Not

I honestly could be engrossed in grocery shopping and an idea pops into my head about…whatever.

Selfie or Not – That’s Been My Struggle

Well, more like taking any photographs of me at my best is a huge struggle. One, because I feel the one taking the photograph has no patience, which stresses me out. Two, because, it seems most photos of me are often taken when I am the least prepared – mouth wide open, laughing, or chewing, […]

A New Outlook…

As I’ve mentioned before, it’s been a struggle for me the past couple of months – trying to rationalize the changes in my life I never imagined possible. While I am doing my best to cope and mend, I decided Raw Silk and Saffron may not be the best place to pour out my feelings […]
