Alter Ego

I have been obsessed with fashion for as long as I can remember. My grandmother tells this story (every holiday…apparently I was the only child who did embarrassing things) of me accompanying her to a department store.  While she was busy talking with a sales associate I wandered down to the shoe aside and tried […]

Never Grow Up—Stay Fun

My beloved MeMe gave me the best birthday card and advice ever.  She said,  NEVER grow UP Stay FUN AND you will never age.  As I looked back over the images taken in 2015 I noticed a common theme.  Dancing, laughter, love, appreciation, gratitude and just living out loud.  I have overcome many challenges in […]

Cake, cake, cake, cake, cake…..

How did I celebrate my 50+ years of life???  Well I took a short trip to one of my favorite travel destinations.  And as usual the city did not disappoint.  As I strolled through beautiful Savanna GA, I thought how quickly time has passed.   The weather was perfect!  I visited a number of  amazing […]

Don’t Forget to Sparkle!

The holiday season is a busy time of year that can leave you feeling tired and crappy.  Preparing food, cooking, cleaning, decorating, shopping etc.  means long hours of preparation.  All of this work can lead to a high level of stress and fatigue, which makes it difficult to sparkle during this festive time of year. […]

Happy girls are the prettiest

A HANDFUL OF HAPPINESS!!  I’m sure some may be thinking,  is it really that  simple?  I often hear once I get a soul mate, my dream job, that designer wardrobe, travel. (you fill in the blanks)  then I will be happy.  I often think of how sad it must be to wait on happiness.  Even […]

Dressed To A “Tee”

Graphic t-shirts are so haute right now!    These versatile t-shirts look amazing and can be worn in a variety of ways.   You can dress them up with a pencil skirt, or dress them down with your favorite pair of jeans.   For date night this Friday I will be wearing my graphic tee with a […]

The Art of Compromise

You have heard the saying, “You scratch my back, and I’ll scratch yours” Well just recently my husband and I had an agreement.  He would take blog images for me  and I would cook a meal using one of the new kitchen gadgets that he had recently purchased.  This may sound easy enough since I […]

Stand Out with Accessories

Accessories are an essential element for a pulled together look.   They have the ability to transform an ordinary outfit and give it that “WOW” factor.  Without accessories, clothes (even high end clothes) just look incomplete and boring.  Kind of like something is missing…  Envision going to the MAC counter to get your face done […]

Oh Autumn, How do I love thee….

Let me count the ways. There are so many things to love about autumn.  Crisp air, comfy clothes, cozy fires, autumn leaves, Halloween, Thanksgiving… snuggling, I mean the list is endless.  Autumn is also a time to reflect, to evaluate life and remove (much like a tree shedding leaves) those things or people that negatively […]

“Haute Grey Pumpkins”

Oprah once said “Your home should rise up to greet you.”  This quote is really evocative and pretty much sums up my feelings about our home. Every Halloween I spend hours and hours looking for the perfect decor to adorn the entry to our home.  This year was no exception.  In my quest to find […]
