"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.

Classic Coach for Fall

  Summer Ending "We cannot direct the wind. But we can adjust the sails." Aristotle Summer is winding down as the weather cools, leaves are turning into glorious hues and breathtaking flowers are slowly wilting.  You can feel the shift in the air. Embrace the pending change with anticipation for pumpkins, colors of red, gold and yellow, falling temperatures, spider webs and the end of summertime.  Once again, we long for cozy sweaters, boots, coats, scarves and apparel designated for a fall landscape. Additionally, we are gearing up again for another roller coaster autumn.  Many events, trips, world upsets, work environments and basic daily life is shifting with uncertainty.  Of course, we cannot predict the future, yet Covid remains intact.  Hopefully more will become vaccinated, which in turn, helps end the present and immediate crisis.  The virus will become endemic with perhaps less fear and instead similar to the annual flu vaccines. To put this is perspective, the Spani
