Cardigan Sweater for Fall

Crisp Air, Change of Weather - Fall is Coming The CardiganLinks Included!


There is a crisp breeze in the air as fall peers around the corner.  The leaves are beginning to change and dusk is coming earlier.  I hope everyone had a wonderful summer filled with laughter, beauty, friends and family.   For me, my summer was filled with three weddings that were all special and unique.  We went on many walks, dealt with smoke from fires, loss of my favorite cat, Anna and saw friends and family.  It was overall a wonderful summer.  I have been a bit lax on writing my blog but have found an exceptional cardigan sweater for the upcoming months.  Imagine a comfortable cardigan sweater wrapped around you while watching football, doing errands, going out or draping yourself in warmth at your office or work space.  Combine with denim, boots, camisole or my favorite Majestic tees and jewelry.  I ordered the dusty pink and am going to order a few more. Finish off the look with your favorite lipstick.…

Charlotte Tilbury Lips - Must Have Orange

Orange Is Happiness



Recently while I was walking through my favorite department store,  I had the desire to snap up a creamy orange hue for my lips.  Orange is such a joyous color that can add sparkle to any face. I did have a momentary flashback of wearing all orange in high school while working at the Safeway bakery.  I vowed that when I was older I would never again wear orange. Yet, today I can  often be found head to toe in tints of orange tennis gear, tops, blouses and woven into prints.  I just love the energy and the spirit of color orange even if it reminds me of the days maple bars, donuts, cookies, cakes and candy.  Thus, I headed straight for Charlotte Tilbury's selection of retro lip tones that are mesmerizing.  Have you seen Charlotte Tilbury's packaging?  It is all very Jackie 'O!  And, yes the perfect "Hot Lips" shade was on display.  Tell Laura is guarantee to pop and add a smile to your face.  I was directed to line with a red pencil liner.  Is…

Yellow is the Word.....








Everywhere you look the color yellow is making a star studded statement.   Yellow signifies happiness, joy, optimism, good health and overall makes everyone smile.  You just can't help notice how the many shades of yellow combined with upbeat energy connect one another with elation.  Lately, I have been thinking how important it is to be apart of something and how essential a network of friends is on a daily basis. The daily community could be from a sport, job or any other activity that is shared and fosters unconditional acceptance.  With my tennis group, we vary in thoughts, religions, race and yet because of a little yellow - yes yellow - tennis ball we are united.  Our daily lunches after partaking in a vigorous game of tennis are entertaining, enlightening and filled with lively exchanges that inspire thought about the world at large.   Even in heated moments, we look at each other, laugh and realize we are just a very small piece of a gigantic puzzl…
