There are few things as comforting to me as a good cup of tea. I like a good cuppa to start my morning, to get me through the work day, and to wind down at night. Having Tarkington Tea at LYB means I have access to delicious blends for every mood. And yet, sometimes I still crave something richer and bolder. Since I can’t drink coffee without getting the jitters (even if it’s dec...

Few things are as rewarding as a good workout and the mild soreness that follows it the next day. Coupled with the gorgeous activewear we have at LYB, it’s no surprise we adore walking into the studio or the gym to sweat it out. Unfortunately, life often gets in the way. Whether it’s travel, an inflexible work schedule, or sick kids, sometimes there is no way to run out and work...

There is no doubt this is the coziest (cashmere sweaters! pumpkin spice lattes! inviting fireplaces!) of seasons, and also the one with the greatest potential to sucker punch you and land you in bed feeling ill. Because none of us want to feel sick this Thanksgiving week or during the December holidays and parties, I offer you four get well fast tricks.

I can vouch for them becaus...

Feeling achy, tired and all around blah? Here are three super quick fixes that are sure to make a difference! Most likely, you have tried at least one of them and maybe even all of them. Nonetheless, because these activities are more powerful than they seem at first glance, it is absolutely worth putting them down in one blog post so, if nothing else, they serve as a reminder for...

During the summer, I am always craving ice cold drinks. Sometimes I want them to be fruity, sometimes I need them to be sweet. I always want them to be refreshing. Making them reminds me of growing up in Mexico City where aguas frescas are readily available. At my own house, we usually had a pitcher of agua fresca in the center of the lunch table (lunch is eaten later, at around...

One of the things that keeps me up at night is the thought of plastic in our bodies of water. From the islands of plastic in the oceans to the microplastics found in our sea salt supply, I shudder when I think of this pollution.

Because plastic is found in everything and everywhere, I feel the best approach to reducing our consumption of plastic is through baby steps. For example,...

Now that the weather is getting warmer, I am craving cooler, brighter treats. As always, I aim to make the healthiest sweets possible. It not only makes me feel better physically, it also allows me to share the treats with my kids with excitement. Here are the three recipes I am constantly making these days:

1) Nice Cream

I make this at least three times a week because my kids ask...

As I mentioned in my previous blog post, shifting my mindset towards "zero waste" has resulted in incredible insights into myself. Aside from discovering there is a lot I can make myself, I have also realized that I have unwittingly adopted beliefs about how I am supposed to spend my free time.

Allow me to explain. When I started telling people that I was making my own coconut mil...

My consumption of tea would lead you to believe I am British. I must have tea throughout the day and at around 4 pm, I crave a cup of tea and a biscuit (or a piece of dark chocolate). In my pantry, I have boxes of teabags, tins of loose-leaf tea, infusers, tea pots, mugs with infusers, and lots more evidence of my devotion to the cuppa. One thing you won’t find in my cupboards an...
