Does Coffee Cause Diabetes?

Were you wondering if you should stop drinking coffee? While it is well known that sugary drinks may increase the chance of developing diabetes, people are always asking what they can do to prevent it.  Because caffeine changes the way the body processes sugar, coffee and tea as well as drinks containing caffeine became subjects of interest.  A study completed on thousands of people showed unsweatened coffee does not lead to any harm and possible benefit.  However, there is possibly more benefit from decaffinated coffee, leading to the conclusion that something else in cof

You'll Know Me By The Way I Smell

It’s my signature scent: coffee and cream.   I wear it on all my clothes, and dash it on rugs and upholstery. Drop drips on sueded shoes.

Starbucks Refreshers: Why I'm A Fan Of This Fresh Take On Coffee

I'm not much for energy drinks (as I've said before, green tea is generally my go-to caffeine source), so I was slightly skeptical about testing out the new line of Starbucks "green coffee" drinks called Starbucks Refreshers. Well, let me tell you, I was pleasantly surprised. Very much so.

6 Tips On Taking Your Online Date Offline

I read a rather scathing article yesterday in the UK's Guardian newspaper on the pitfalls of online dating. As a long-term professional in the industry - and as someone who met their current SO online - I really wanted to write a positive post today about finding love on the 'net. Interestingly, the crux of this piece was the assertion that you can fall for the 'details' of someone's online persona - their interests, their physical apperance, their political beliefs - but those details don't tell you anything about the man/woman behind the profile.

3 Zen Ways To Keep Connected After Having Kids

When you have small children, you have little control over your life. My wife and I feel this as much as anyone. We live in less than 500 square feet with a 3-year-old and a 15-month-old. We've moved across the Atlantic twice since we got married five years ago. We've endured serious health issues and two kids who just refuse to sleep. And yet we are (barely) sane. Here are 3 slightly counterintuitive, Zen-inspired reasons why.

The 5 Most Disturbing Things We Do For Beauty

Yesterday, The New York Times printed a small piece on edible beauty products, highlighting such odd concoctions as Nutra Resveratrol Anti-Ageing Water and, even more disturbing, a coffee in Singapore that contains collagen, and which is meant to improve the skin. In Japan, they even add collagen to yogurt drinks, dried fruits and other foods. It seems like a weird way to go in order to simultaneously satisfy your beauty and your caffeine fix. Then again, we've seen worse.
