Note from Lana | Lifestyle Queen Bee: Can I be honest for a sec? I HATE seafood. I can eat tuna 1-2 times a year and every so often can pop a few popcorn shrimps into my mouth but that’s as far as it goes. Bring the daughter of a woman born in St. Lucia with 4 of my 5 older siblings being born there + being HUGE seafood lovers, I definitely was the odd (wo)man out.

While I am not a huge fan of seafood, I know I’m in the minority. Aside from the great intake of iron you get from consuming fish, there are other great health benefits. My guest, Ian, is giving you all some ways on how you can Continue reading “Introducing More Fish into Your Diet”

Here Are My 20 Goals for Fall. What Are Yours?

If you follow me on Social Media or even read my last post, you’ll know I have a soft spot in my heart for Fall. While some people are sad to see Fall come around as it marks the end of Summer and warm weather, I like to look at it positively. Fall means a time for new beginnings and change.
