"Shopping for quality fashion pieces is an art form" 
July is finally here and summer has officially commenced. The weather is warm and the sun is shining.  Along with summer festivities is the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  For fall and winter 2018, think plaids, fur accents, statement bows, polka dots, color laden animal prints, bright tights and hues of pink, red, magenta and rust.
Additionally, shopping has never been better with just a click, your item will be on your doorstep in no time.  No more rushing around like a mad women.  For me, the sale is always about purchasing needed items and maybe one or two statement pieces.

Yellow Mania - Kim's Musing for July 8, 2018

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…

Shopping Myth: Spend Less, Buy Bargains will save you Money! -  Not! 
Recently at a summer soiree - I wore an expensive classic pair of pumps that I have owned for eight years - walked and danced the night away.  My feet did not hurt in the slightest at the end of the night. You can purchase cheap apparel and shoes but you will pay the price physically and the item will not last years to come.  Thus, you ultimately will spend more money by buying less quality ite…

June Makeup Favorites & Girlfriend Etiquette

Beauty & Friendship or Friendship & Beauty





Makeup, hair, apparel and girlfriends etiquette.  What more do women need than each other during the joys and hardships of life.  Or course, we love our men without question.  Yet, we want our women friends to hold our hands, listen to our woes and help carry the load when we have issues. After all, women love to talk, talk and talk more.  Men can only handle only so much chatter and would rather fix the issue than drone on or analyze a situation.   Life can be challenging and it takes a village of women to make all the pieces work efficiently.  However, just what makes a terrific girlfriend?   Here are a few of my tips which I don't always follow but try too.  Life is a journey and we are all far from perfect. And, if we were perfect wouldn't the adventure be dull and boorish?  Some girlfriends are lifelong and others are for a moment.  The truly close women stick by your side through everything.  If you are one of the lucky…

Summer Hot Pants

Whimsical, Colorful and Exhibiting Bee Power!




Are you ready? Do you have your party pants that are lively and filled with mischievous fun?  Or white jeans that signal I am ready for the summer months?  Lately, I noticed that the fashion magazines are a wee bit absent of glorious hues on their slick covers.  I was rather dismayed as they arrived at my house.  Like a bee, I wasn't attracted to the covers and if seen in store I would have passed them by.  Their black and white motifs were rather mundane and similar to forlorn newsprint.  I am thinking perhaps the Editor in Chiefs from the various rags got together and stated let's all have our covers be absent of glorious summery hues.  Yet, why be so morose? Like a bee, I wasn't too keen on perusing these magazines because they were not attractive to the eye.  Seriously, note all the beauty swirling around daily in a kaleidoscope of good and vivid cheer. It is glorious outside with the green trees, flowers blooming, water s…
