World renowned fashion photographer Mario Testino captured the traditional costumes of his native Peru in "Alta Moda", currently on display at the Queen Sofia Spanish Institute. This phrase translates to "high fashion" and fittingly the exhibit is chaired by design powerhouse Oscar de la Renta.
Visiting the Spanish Institute was especially important to me since I studied abroad in Spain. Its located in the coziest brownstone on the Upper East Side and the staff brings back warm memories of my homestay family. I'm planning on brushing up on my Spanish with one of their group classes in the spring!

It seems everyone is going vegan these days. In an effort to see what all the hooplah is about, I've stopped eating meat during the work week for the past two months and wow, I get it. My skin is clearer, my workouts are easier, and my mental processes are quicker. For those worried about feeling full, I find eating hearty vegetables like sweet potato and brussel sprouts always leaves me feeling satisfied.
- Wash 2 cups of baby brussel sprouts and cook on low fire with coconut oil until brussels begin to brown.
- Dice one gala apple and add to pot.
- Drizzle coconut oil over ingredients and cover pot for 5 minutes.
- Remove from pan and sprinkle with cinnamon.
