"Be a Warrior" - Oprah Winfrey



Big Little Lies (HBO) Stole the Show 


The 75th Golden Globes soiree was held on Sunday, January 7, 2017, with Seth Meyers hosting at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.  The primary focus of the event was on the Time's Up protest supporting Hollywood's anti-sexual harassment movement rather than just film.   Time's Up is an effort to raise money for legal defense fund for victims of sexual harassment in the workplace. After the good riddance of Harvey Weinstein and many others with sordid behaviors in the movie industry, it was moment to move forward with a new expectation on how humans conduct themselves in all workforce arenas.  Everyone was encouraged to wear black advocating solidarity for all that have been abused, silenced by discrimination or harassment.   Meyers was witty and Oprah Winfrey, recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille award, rendered everyone speechless with a powerful dissertation about life.

Additionally, the cast of Big Little Lies, Best TV Limited Series or Motion Picture for TV,  Nicole Kidman, Best Actress, Alex Skarsgard, Best Actor, Laura Dern, Best Supporting Actress was forefront and center.  The storyline primary focus is on abuse that is physical, sexual and or verbal. Reese Witherspoon, a Time's Up, spokesperson and producer of Big Little Lies, was brilliant in speaking about hope for those living in horrific circumstances.


Missed the Mark of the Night

  • Jennifer Aniston with icon Carol Burnett.  It somehow didn't work and was rather inappropriate with the use of the word kinky. The word seemed unsuitable under the nights circumstances. 
  • Barbara Streisand's face during Oprah's speech was something to behold.  Rather shocking. Maybe these two compete? After all getting Streisand to present was a feat. 
  • Kirk Douglas & Catherine Zeta Jones:  In the future, it is best to leave the elderly at home.  We love them but want to remember them as they were and not as they are now.   Sad really.

The Black Beauties






Award season is usually filled with glamorous, color infused long gowns that dazzle on the  red carpet.  This year an ocean of black paraded down the red carpet.  Everyone did indeed bask in the glow of looking absolutely stunning.  There were just a few who should have worn something else.  For instance, a pant suit with messy hair was drab or a see through concoction would have been best on a twenty something.  Also, cocktail length dresses and pant suits never work well on the red carpet.  Don't miss the memo if all are doing the same.  This was one instance to come together as a unified team.   End of story.

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 …

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…

What I Love This Week - Perfume - Scents, seductive, fresh and oh so beautiful



Lancome's Le Vie est Belle Eau De Parfum (Life is Beautiful) is lovely and unforgettable.  Have you ever worn a perfume that receives lots of comments?  I personally love this scent.  And, yes others do comment.  
The name of the perfume constantly reminds me that life is indeed beautiful.  Life is a gift.  It is to be cherished and and should be enjoyed.  Don't let Negative Nelly'sAngry Annie's or Righteous Rita's ruin your day. Avoid those that do not lift your spirits or make you smile.  Seek out laughter with others either online or in-person. 
Spritz on your favorite perfume.  Put on something pretty and start the day with the knowledge that your life choices and decisions matter.  You are special.   
Lancome's Le Vie est Belle Eau De Parfum  has floral notes of sambac, jasmine and Tunisian orange blossom. This perfume is for the woman who lives in the present and loves her life. …
