Gifts - The Little Gifts Count





Pretty Statements







It is the small gifts that matter the most.   The little things which shout joy and bring forth spring like memories of apple pie, sunshine, lemonade and of course thoughtfulness.  Yes, a shiny blue teacup, flower earrings, a pair of brightly hued sunglasses or a dash of cherry red lipstick changes the day from dreary to cheery.   The small things in Spring 2017 become center stage adding a sense of hope, delight and happiness to come. 



Hair Color Moments







I.  The Happiness Hair Holder:  Spring colors in beautiful hues are exceptional for adding a bright spot of cheerful sunshine to a pony.   Additionally fall back on a standard braided headband in black for a beautiful hair fix.

Flexible is a Choice

Spice of Life What does it take to being flexible on the road of life especially when change is at an all time high? Well, for many the simple task of walking will transform the body and mind thus ingraining a "flexible mindset".    Of course, put your phone away or keep on silent.  Allow yourself to hear your own thoughts and unleash your creative side or solve issues.   During the last year and a half, I have been walking with my husband and friends.  We have discovered new places, trails, wildlife, foliage, and forged friendships.  We have been accepting, evolving and creating new elements in our lives.  Along the journey, we have all strengthened our bodies and fueled our minds with conversation while admiring nature and embracing connection.  We became flexible with what we were able to do on a daily basis.    Throughout the Covid 19 pandemic, we have had an opportunity to get off the hamster wheel and adjust our lives accordingly.  For some, the adjustment was hard, and

Mom Jeans - Oh NO

Yves Saint Laurent "Mom Jeans"   are making a powerful comeback in 2021.  I remember women wearing "Mom Jeans" in the day and am stunned that women are slipping down this road again.  The term "Mom Jeans" originated in the in the late 1980's and early 1990's. They were worn by mom's and considered unhip by the youth.  A friend of mine recently asked, "What exactly are Mom Jeans?"   Typically, "Mom Jeans" are higher waisted than the high waist style, often in a light denim wash, creating a longer and flatter hind end.  There is extra fabric throughout and can emphasize a pouch if you have one. The fit is snug at the waist, sometimes with a waist band with a loose and unfitted leg.  Think of pajama pants only with extra fabric at the top.  The next requirement is to
