Penciled in

When it comes to the summer and the warmer temperatures, I usually go for long and flowy, but every once in a while I find something I didn’t know I was looking for. Comfort and style are always a priority for me, and I tend to think of pencil skirts as too tight and clingy […]

Lip Service (a review)

Imagine a lipstick that goes on smooth, stays on without reapplying every 1/2 hour, never fades, and is nourishing to your lips at the same time. It sounds too good to be true, but I found it in this product by Simple Beauty Minerals.   As I have matured, 57 years young, I prefer a natural […]

London Calling

7.25.18 Early morning flights are never fun but sometimes necessary.  New York to London is one of those flights unless you want to do the redeye.   I must admit, as much as I love the destinations, the anticipation of the flight can cause me enough stress to change my mind about going.

Shopping for Jeans..the hidden gems.

Shopping for jeans is always a challenge, but if you can manage the right mindset, you do get through it. I prefer to shop for jeans alone. I barely have the patience for myself, let alone imposing that on a friend of mine. For me, the perfect pair of jeans will be easy to put […]

Layering – Not Just for Clothes

I would say the feeling hits during early November when I look at the left-over pumpkins with new eyes. Halloween is over, but it feels like it’s time to harvest inside instead of outside. It could start with a pumpkin, an ear of corn, fresh tomatoes found at a local market or maybe even in […]

How to work in & dress for your work out!

Sometimes it doesn’t matter how organized I am – my day just doesn’t go as planned. If you have kids you learn early on that, whatever the plan is, it will probably change:) Having said that, there’s a couple of things I won’t give up, Starbucks and my work-out. It was 1981 when my grandfather […]
