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.

7 Ways to Become a Butterfly

Don't Crush the Butterfly!


"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? Well, for one all the people of the land can evolve into creative and wondrous butterflies.   It is through the journey of life that sometimes the environment, family, friends and peers willingly crush the beauty and charming essence of you  - the exotic butterfly.






Don't Destroy the Wings of Flight
There will always be the vengeful, the user, the hateful or a person filled with jealousy and envy that clips the wings of the butterfly.  Their insecurities reign supreme and a beautiful butterfly ready to spread its wings can sometimes be stunned with …

Monday's Favorite Things - Sunglasses

What I Love This Week - Ray-Ban Sunglasses




My well-loved polarized Ray-Bans are scratched from constant wearing and setting them down.  Apparently, I should have put them in their case more than I did.  One day while driving, I noticed that the scratches on the lens were bothering me.  Upon a recent trip to my favorite store, I spotted a new pair of shades. 
I tried them on and the rest is history.   I love these retro sunglasses.  They fit perfectly and have the polarization that is a must.  Why?  A glass surface is horizontal, the light reflects horizontally.   With polarized sunglasses, the surface filters out the horizontal light waves and protects from harmful UV rays.
For example, wear a pair of sunglasses without polarization and investigate a river or lake.  You will not see the fish swimming clearly.  With polarized sunglasses you can see the fish with an eagle eye.  Thus, my fascination with wearing only polarized lenses. 
By the way, I wear sunglasses year-round protecting from…

"Pick the day. Enjoy it- to the hilt.  The day as it comes. People as they come... The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present - and I don't want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future." 



"To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow." The ShiftIn our current upside-down apple pie world, many are struggling with the overload of information on the virus or election. The airwaves, print, social media, or any form of communication is constantly swirling at a high voltage.  The never-ending fables, unrest, destruction, statistics, changes our way of life and follows the path of what I call - The Shift.  A shift that we have no control over but can deal with as gracefully as possible. The Shift where everything we did for pleasure, work or play is on temporary hold or gone forever.  These shifts have happened throughout history.  Be patient. Be kind. It will pass and resolve. The chaos for some may lead to anger, …
