Do you love holidays? I love the idea of an unconventional holiday. Our writer, July spent some time in Taipei, and wrote about it to give you a taste of something you might have yet to try. Here’s your chance to experience a lil’ spice of Taipei.
Goodnight, Taipei, on Valentine’s Day | by: July Westhale
How do you ever been out on the streets on Valentine’s Day? Couples are all grinning at each other, giving each moon eyes, eating sitting next to each other instead of across the table, and generally just making the lives of those who are single pretty miserable. However, aside from big metropolitan cities, Valentine’s Day in the United States is more about packaged candy and stuffed bears then eating the same spaghetti noodle in a back alley of an Italian restaurant.…
When was the last time you were invited over to a friend’s place for dinner? Did they cook?
For a few years, I was really missing breaking bread with friends. Yes, Joe and I are invited to friend’s home a few times each month for dinner. I’m not complaining (and thank you to the friends who are reading this now). We truly love it so much, we decided we want ALL of our friends to join us. Of course we couldn’t host-everyone, but just the right number happened to accept the invite. It was perfect. I was in awe of how much good energy was flowing in our little humble abode-and the incredible dynamic between all of us.
For such a long time-4 years to be exact-I’ve had total kitchen shame.…
There isn’t much ambiguity in the title, right? Sexting is just text messages with sexually explicit content-photos, videos, or simply just sexual text; if for some reason you didn’t already know. I may have been years behind when I first learned this word, since I’d been doing it without a label for years. Who doesn’t send sexy photos to their lover? I think it’s a mandatory piece of any healthy relationship. If your opinion differs, I’d love to hear about it. This topic always sparks my interest. This article isn’t really about how I sext my husband. It’s more about how our sexting has evolved and some unique elements of it.
This idea came to my attention the other night when Joe, my husband and I were at CIIS (California Institute of Integral Studies) the other night for a presentation on psychedelics.…

Indian Dal Recipe for Lovers | by: Mckenna Toston
Cooking is an art that fulfills me and keeps me grounded despite what’s happening in my world. No matter what stressful events my day might bring, a little time in the kitchen always puts a smile back on my face–especially when I’m in the kitchen with my partner.
After five years of collaborating in the kitchen, Vincent and I have mastered cooking together. I chop, he pours. I stir, he seasons. He flips, I plate. Those are the basics, anyway. …
Top 10 Sensual Foods
These are 10 superfoods that I like to keep stocked in my kitchen, as they are proven to ignite the senses, summon sensuality and provide the body with optimal nourishment.
- Raw Cacao
- Raw Almonds
- Goji Berries
Things to remember: all of these delicious foods are more potent and higher quality when grown organic. Organic farming promotes ideal soil conditions. By purchasing organic, you are voting with your dollars and asking for more nutrient rich soil and in turn, optimal nourishment for you and future generations! If possible, also have these powerful foods fresh, and raw.
Now for the good stuff. Let’s chat about the number one sensual food.
My dear friend, iX-chel Sandivel is a truly driven individual and record breaking athlete. In her competitive running days, she nationally ranked in the 10,000 meters, and placed 11th at the NCAA II Track & Field Championships. She is a former Nike elite runner for “The Janes.” Ix-Chel is now a women’s empowerment coach.
I met iX-Chel in an unsuspecting place and felt an instant connection. She is consistently cultivating her skills and is truly a well-rounded teacher. I love learning from her and we have so much fun together.
Our unsuspecting meeting place was a nail salon in Las Vegas. Both iX-Chel and I visit nail salons once in a blue moon. To add another silly twist to this scenario-my husband came to pick me up at the salon and was waiting for a few minutes near all of the glossy fashion magazines (gotta love him)! …
