KiraGrace Donates 100% of Profits of Select Pieces to Off the Mat into The World

KiraGrace Donates 100% of Profits of Select Pieces to Off the Mat into The World
I wear yoga clothes pretty much every day.  Between teaching, workouts and class it seems that I put them on in the morning and am too rushed, tired, comfortable to change.  That is why cuteness is almost as important as function, as far as I’m concerned. I’m also always looking for something a little different... Read more »

Keeping Healthy While On Vacation

Keeping Healthy While On Vacation
I’m home from a week in a house on the beach with family.  Vacation is a time to get away and recharge from the pressures of every day life.  I succeeded at less screen time and more family time, and I tried really hard, despite numerous temptations, to continue my healthy eating lifestyle. Exercise I... Read more »

Yoga at Historic Wrigley Field

Yoga at Historic Wrigley Field
I’ve spent many days at Wrigley Field, beginning when I was a young child.  My grandparents, loyal Cubs fans, lived on Cornelia and we often incorporated a visit with a walk to a Cubs Game. I’ve entertained work clients, watched playoff games and also listened to some of my favorite musicians including Elton John, Paul... Read more »

P90X: Finally Seeing Improvement at Day 75
I’m really not sure if it is even Day 75.  When committing to P90X back in April, exercise became a more consistent part of my daily schedule and somewhere between pull ups and Plyometrics I lost count.  It often is an inconvenience and many days I don’t want to do it. Nonetheless a habit is... Read more »

Conan at The Chicago Theatre
Yesterday morning my kids, mom and I piled in the car to head downtown and stand in line for Conan O’Brien tickets.  We waited about 45 minutes, but credit belongs to the staff as it was extremely organized and before long we had our wristbands and tickets. Home we went for the last day of... Read more »

Meatless Monday: Black Bean Croquettes with Fresh Salsa
Many of the recipes that I consider preparing, I worry will be turned away by my little ones. It is always a challenge to find the marriage between macaroni and cheese and fresh green salads, but I think I might have found it in this recipe from Eating Well. These Black Bean Croquettes are packed... Read more »

I'm One of Those Crying Moms

I'm One of Those Crying Moms
Maybe I can blame it on the hormones, but somewhere between the miraculous birth of my son and present day; the tears don’t stop.  They aren’t sad, hurtful or crocodile tears; they are proud tears. At my 3 year old’s ballet recital the tears were expected.  After all, I cried when she put on her... Read more »

My Experience at The Apple Store

My Experience at The Apple Store
As my fellow Chicago Now bloggers told me, “Once you go Mac, you don’t go back.” After suffering for months as my Dell froze after every paragraph or sometimes refused to start at all, I did what I’ve been talking about for years; I bought a MacBook Air.  My husband suggested we go to Best...

Summer Recipes Not to Miss

Summer Recipes Not to Miss
  This time of year I notice gaggles of interesting summery recipes on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram. I always make a note in my head to remember, when in reality I never do.   Sometimes I think of them; but can’t find the site to learn the details I need.  One twitter friend suggested Evernote,...
