Cold shoulders

I remember about six months ago when someone I work with had a really cute top on that had cut outs around the shoulders. I think I’ve shared before that I am somewhat self-conscious about baring my arms as I think they look too big. For me, cold shoulder tops are good option for someone …

Planner Style

A year ago, I stumbled upon a little known world of planner people – specifically, women who buy planners and then decorate them with all kind of doo-dads and what-nots. I think most of us when we buy a planner, we think to ourselves that we are buying it in order to get more organized …

Larger than life

A few days ago, I learned that a friend and colleague had suffered a massive heart attack. There was hope that he would pull through, but four days after his heart attack, he passed away. He was 50. His death was shocking to me because he seemed larger than life. He lived his life fighting …

Another black dress

I will admit that for me it has been a personal challenge to post pictures of myself on this blog. I will never claim to be any type of fashionista. I do like to dress nicely for work and try to look professional. For a while, I was kind of in this mode of picking …

Black & Blue

We finally had a day without heavy rain. I’m not complaining because where I live we have been in a drought for the past few years.

My Fashion Steal

There are moments in life when you just cannot believe that you have stumbled upon something that really is too good to be true. That happened to me about two weeks ago. For my birthday in October, my son gave me a Nordstrom Gift Card for $25.00. I never got around to using it. Then …

Back at Work

Tomorrow I head back to work after being off for two weeks for the holiday break. It’s always nice for a break, but I’m ready to go back. Question for you – do you wash your hair every day or every other day or even more infrequently? I used to be an every day hair …

A Big Trip!

My older brother has been working and living in Sicily for the last couple of years. A couple of weeks ago, my mom told me that she had a proposal. My mom and my sister usually go on walks in the morning and Jessica had mentioned to my mom about visiting our brother in Sicily. …

Two favorite make-up products

I’ve always loved make-up. It is the one tried and true pick me up that helps me, day after day. However, I was also someone who didn’t quite appreciate items that can be used to help your make-up look better from the moment you put it on to the end of the day. One of …
