Stockings & Holiday Gifts 2017




Santa Ho Ho Ho!







Gift giving is at the forefront this holiday season along with parties, get together's, decorating, watching lights and everything jovial.  Shopping for a special someone, girlfriends or family members often is difficult after the teenage years.  More importantly, shopping can be time consuming and not always the best experience while jostling among the hoards of humanity.  Listed are a few tips for good measure.  Followed with 12 Days of Christmas presents to complete a Christmas tree, fill a stocking or a mantel.  Celebrate in-style and select quality items that are guaranteed to bring a smile to one and to all. 


Holiday Shopping Tips






  1. Shopping List: Make a list and a budget to follow.  
  2. Order Online:  For ease of use, ease of a click and ease of mind.  
  3. In-Store:  Do visit your favorite department store and experience the cheery vibe with a heavy swirl of chaos.  Perhaps grab a latte to prepare for impact. 
  4. Most Important Present Selecting Rules:
    1. What Would You Like?:  Think about what you would like to receive from others that is enjoyed by many when selecting gifts for parties, girlfriends or hostess presents.  IE:  Lip gloss, hand lotion, ornaments, candy, wine, small candles etc.  Keep the gift simple and elegant.
    2. Know Sizes of Clothing Apparel:   Know the sizes and styles of the beloved one. Often times the receiver of the gift will have to return the item.  Or perhaps they will love it.  Apparel can be tricky and it is a gamble. 
    3. Anything Small:  Small gifts are always perfect.
  5. Dress For the Holiday Experience:  Wear casual yet merry clothing for an upbeat shopping experience.  Dress to impress and embrace the festive mood.

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

  Just Say It Isn't So! "I wish I had invented blue jeans. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity- all I hope for in my clothes." 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
