Thanksgiving is past and the shopping holiday frenzy is in twinkling swing.  Decorating houses, baking cookies, going to soirees, spreading cheer and snapping up holiday deals is top of mind.  This weekend alone, Americans, will spend over $20B on gifts for self which is astounding.  The bells are ringing with happiness in anticipation.  Thus, get ready to shop in store or online, partake in festivities, happy vibes, counting blessings and giving back.  All the while, selecting a few sparkling items to place under the tree, give a friend or one in need.  Here are just a few picks to toast the holiday season.



The Tote of the Century







Longchamp Large Le Pliage Tote




Longchamp Totes are indeed the best on the market today.  The tote is water resistant, indestructible and comes in a variety of rainbow hues.   These numbers were all over Hawaii.  You can't go wrong placing this beauty under a Christmas tree.




 The Lip Saver - Stocking Stuffer








Lacome Juicy Tubes are a must for year round ease of lip perfection usage.  I purchased several of these last year and have them in my car, tennis bag and and handbag.  Perfect for a quick swipe of fruity gloss.  Smell yummy too.  Order up for hostess gifts, stockings and friend exchanges.

Well, that is it for now.  Have fun shopping in-store or online.  Yesterday, I braved the mall and lucked out finding a red Longchamp tote  at Nordstrom half off.  Score!  Of course, the black one highlighted is not on sale.  However, I must admit it is easier to shop online for the the items I love.  I hope you love them too.  Next up - more shopping items for the blessed Holiday season.

Life is a Gift

A River Called Life



"Life is a precious gift.  Use your day wisely."

Or in our case as human beings doing the best they can as they spend each day rambling down the river of life.  An actual river flows downhill from the force of gravity.  The waters can be wide and deep or shallow to walk across.  This river can be called a stream, creek, or brook.  A once serene rushing river can turn into a flooding nightmare covering land, filling houses, and changing landscapes.  Just like humanity spinning towards the unknown.

Summer Sunshine - Strong & Healthy

Paint My World in Sparkling Hues




Summer is in full swing and dressed in opportunity and hope. Are you listening closely?

Their vivid scales are uplifting and spellbinding.  We too love color and summer is the perfect time to surround yourself in tones of sunshine.  The power of the mind, how we fill it, what we eat, how we work out and what we wear expresses summer thankfulness. 
Bring on bold hues to make us sing with excitement and contentment.  After all, we cannot change what is happening in our world.  We can only control ourselves.   Shout, dance and live in stains of color filling the day with new opportunities and lessons.  Gladly, like me, many in the media are hearing the call to spread positive vibes and tones of gla…

"Despite everything, no one can dictate who you are to other people." - Prince




Butterfly's come in all shapes and sizes painted in dazzling and colorful hues.  The beauty and varied differences of the butterfly are astounding and beloved by the beholder.  There are approximately 20,000 species throughout the world dancing in the sun and air.   Yet, what does a butterfly mean to fashionistas?
