dipping my toes back into the water..

You know I couldn’t stay away long….from style, styling, and new products, that is. But DO NOT PANIC. I am not going back to the mall. I am still part owner of my family business and working from home and watching my kids grow. BUT, I need to be a part of something creative andContinue reading “dipping my toes back into the water..”

on the cusp

Memorial Day weekend is such a tease. What I’m learning from my work from home role and also as the kids get older is that waiting for the end of the school year is like waiting for nail polish to dry if you are painting your nails outside in 98 degree humid July heat. ItContinue reading “on the cusp”

December Rewind

No matter who you talk to every year about this time (Christmas Eve, Eve), everyone’s all “I can’t believe Christmas is in 2 days”! Yep. People, I hate to burst your bubble but it’s the same day every year. Small talk is not my fav, but I digress. I made a conscious decision to enjoyContinue reading “December Rewind”

Why don’t my freaking pants fit?

Probably because I haven’t worn anything with a zipper or buttons in over 4 months? I’m gonna say that. Summer is for abundant consumption if you’re a summer person. Beach and boat snacks, al fresco lunches, DAY DRINKING, and let’s not discount night drinking, and finally lots of burgers and dogs. So now after allContinue reading “Why don’t my freaking pants fit?”

Old Habits….Some need to live on.

What inspires you? I know my, kids, my family, yada yada I know… NO. That’s all pretty awesome but, not anything like that. I mean something that only you do, by yourself. To you know get up and move, start a project, learn something new… For me it’s the start of summer and exercising outsideContinue reading “Old Habits….Some need to live on.”

Turning pages.

I’ve been reading. A lot lately. Not so much writing. I’ve been in a little idea rut. Mainly because I’ve been wearing sweatpants and wearing a storm trooper plastic arm brace. I digress. Apart from my normal daily reading: articles, blogs, blips, posts; I’ve been Reading. Books. With paper pages. I’ve been wearing my glasses.Continue reading “Turning pages.”

april = no more black tights!!!

It’s time. Time to free those feet and legs from the control top opaque black tights. Not to mention time for a few spray tan sessions and a pedicure. But, all in due time. I THINK its safe to say we’re past the frost mornings. Dear God, let’s hope so. Anyway, the minute I hadContinue reading “april = no more black tights!!!”

i like to look at you.

Collection: a number of things collected or assembled together. things gathered in to a mass or pile. see also: Accumulation I collect stuff. I think we all do in some way. These days it seems the only things that I collect are laundry, sports equipment and crumbs in the kitchen BUT… BK (before kids) IContinue reading “i like to look at you.”

unwritten rules

So, I am a total rule follower (that damn catholic school education again). But when it comes to my wardrobe, I have never been. In fact, most of my life I’ve been skirting around all the rules. For example in high-school when all the girls were wearing their preppy Sebegos, I choose a platform laceContinue reading “unwritten rules”

midi me

Maybe it’s because I went to 12 years of catholic school and we had to wear knee-length skirts. Maybe it’s because I love the late 1940’s-1950’s post war Dior “New Look”, when a lady really looked like a lady. Maybe it’s because I’m slightly obsessed with Audrey, Jackie, and SJP, respectively. Regardless, the midi skirt isContinue reading “midi me”
