Back to a Routine!

Well. almost.

The photographer forgot his camera today. iPhone to the rescue! Sorry the camera doesn't capture the normal high quality photos you have come to expect!

Where to being after a 2 week blog break?

With the clothes of course!

The black and white jacket was one of my Christmas gifts from Ben. You have seen it before! It is in the video from this post.

The dress underneath is from this post.

My fabulous Betsey Johnson's are from this post.

I think we are getting to the point where you are going to see some repeats more frequently. How do I keep our conversations lively when you already know all of the stories?

I guess I just need to change the subject!

Guess what?


Guess again. No, not that.


Yup, I am going to write a book. Not even about clothes! For those of you that are not here from the Nutrimirror community, here is the announcement that was made last week!

New NM Authors --- Lynn and Kel in 2010
Earlier this week I announced our first book, “Balanced Days, Balanced Lives”, will be released in March, 2010.

Today it is my pleasure to announce that two NM members have agreed to author books for us in 2010. If everything goes to schedule their books will be released in early 2011.

Lynn Matava (Serving Up a Smile columnist) will write about “loving the foods that love you back”. I’m sure we can expect to learn something about ancient grains; maybe, even, we’ll get a recipe for the “chia bon-bons” she’ll be expecting as a guest in the green room of Kel’s hot TV show “Please, Just Kel Me”.

This brings me to our second author, Kel Beaudoin (TGIF with Kel columnist). With her flair for humor and sound advice Kel will be writing about overcoming poor lifestyle choices to successfully manage lives in balance.

As their publisher, I am excited for them and their opportunity. And, I am hopeful their books will be important and help to advance the NM mission --- improving the health of a nation, one body at a time.

I’m sure (more than once) during this challenging process of book writing, they’ll throw life-lines to the NM family through the Journal Room. And, I’m just as sure they’ll get a ton of support and well-wishes.

Lynn Matava is a friend, one that I have yet to meet. We have joked - over emails and internet postings on Nutrimirror, that one day we will meet on Oprah's couch. A girl can dream, right?

Well, we took the dream one step further towards reality with this announcement!

I will continue to post here, but I do hope you will forgive my brevity. I will be doing a lot of writing!
On other fronts, my dog is still sick. She reminds me quite frequently of this, sadly, but I had only asked her to stick around through the holidays. I am looking at everything else as a gift.

Work is picking up right where it left off - busy! I will be going into an intense couple of months; I hope I can keep up this pace. Good thing I get all of my vitamins!

So, to summarize, thank you for your patience through the holidays, and I hope your holidays brought you time with friends and family. I also hope you made a little time for You!

Thanks for checking in!



P.S. Sorry Karyn with the twitchy voting finger - I can't let you vote off a Christmas gift for goodness sake!


  1. Glad you are back. I love, love, love the coat!!

  2. Kel I let out a gasp when I opened the closet and saw this picture - I LOVE THAT COAT!!!!! It looks like a swing coat in the picture and I totally adore that style; and the pattern is awesome. You look fantastic in it, or it looks fantastic on you, whichever way you're supposed to say that to indicate a huge compliment. :)

  3. Kel, I love that coat and how cute is it with those shoes!!! As always, you still made them stylish even with the iphone! About the book...I can not wait to read them! I'm so glad to know a NM writer and author. I will of coarse want an autograph on my copy!!!! See you in the journal room!

  4. This outfit is Fantastic! I love that coat. :o)

    Congratulations on the book writing! I can't wait until it comes out. :o) You have so much wisdom, love and humor!

  5. I just found this post and am proud to say I know you. Now that we've actually met, I am damn sorry that you don't live closer. Mostly because I want that coat. And also because it would be fun ;-) ~Lynn
