The best thing for a virgin is to give a kick and a kink. Today hubby and I had a fresh pineapple for desert. Sweet, juicy and tropical, it's the healthiest desert we have had yet!

We poured the left over juice into a wine glass and then added some club soda. Yup! Good, old Canadian Dry club soda. It was a very delicious way to enjoy the fruity goodness of a pineapple, plus bubblies.

Then I thought: what about other juices? Orange? Mango? Peaches and berries? By adding a little club soda to your regular juice of choice gives them a fresh bubbly taste that equates a soda, except much healthier.

Virgin or not, there are always little creative ways to spice up every single pleasure in your life. A virgin spritzer? It's as good as sex!

Spring is about baby green grass, tender drizzles from the sky and pretty flowers like daffodils and tulips.

Tulips! What a pretty shape! All the petals cup each other into the most lovely silhouette. I guess the designers noticed too. This spring, watch out for the most fun and flirty tulip skirts to hit both runways and real ways. I'd love to see some bright colors like yellow and orange. Also, tulip skirts that show off the legs are the best!

Wear them with your highest stiletto. You are sure to dazzle the spring!

No one is perfect. No one is invincible. We are all born with a one way ticket. Some of us, unfortunately, have a shorter journey. But only the most talented of us make a long-lived impression.

The late Heath Ledger, our February Hunk Alert, impressed us with his theatrical talent in many movie roles. But his portrayal of pure evil as the Joker in Batman, the Dark Knight, is so unsurpassed that it was predicted an Oscar long before the nominees were announced.

Even if Heath was still alive, the Oscar belonged to him. But since he tragically passed, his receiving the award is more bitter sweet. Especially when his parents and sister accepted it for him, dedicating the Oscar to his daughter, Matilda.

We will always love Heath Ledger as the sly bad boy in 10 Things I hate About You, or even as the rough neck cowboy in Brokeback Mountain. But we will always remember him as the eerie joker in Dark Knight, who toyed repeatedly with death.

After its introduction just a couple of years back, this swim suit trend has been shouting out loud! We love the cut out not only because it's a sexy design, it is also the most forgiving next to that boring, old one piece.

See the picture to the left? Even the most monotone suit can get spicy with a few choppy cut outs here and there.

In the past week, Seattle has seen enough sun to give us North Western girls a tiny dot of hope for hot weather. And hot weather means swim suits, including the new, sexy and flattering cut out!
