All Hail Duke and Duchess of Sussex






On May 19, 2018, 1B people around the world stopped for a few hours and took in the beautiful wedding of Meghan Markle, American to Prince Harry held at St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, England.  I was one of the many watching from the comfort of my home at 2:30 a.m.  Yes, it was indeed an epic day sprinkled with lush flowers, exalted fashion, open carriage, military, horses, celebrities, royalty, Queen Elizabeth II and the people in Windsor sporting expressions of enthusiasm and excitement.  Thankfully, no stiff or newspaper seeking politicians or dignitaries as requested by Prince Harry.  Thus, a thoroughly modern, refreshing and a bit of a madcap wedding with moments that brought tears, joy and yes, even surprise when a 2 minute sermon requested by Queen Elizabeth II went on for 13 minutes. The reaction of the wedding attendees was a sight to behold.  Alas, Prince Harry will never be king so let there be a joyous and an unfettered occasi…

The Frock of the Moment

May 19th is hours away from the wedding of the year to commence between American born Meghan Markle and across the pond royal, Prince Henry.  It will indeed be quite exciting with 1B people watching with delight and happiness from around the world.   The fashion, the people, the celebrities, the royals, the horses, the carriage, Queen Elizabeth II and so much more.  Yesterday, while shopping with a girlfriend for her wedding dress, we stumbled upon a dress collection by Chiara Boni La Petite Robe that is simply divine.  In fact, I do believe the commentators on The Today Show this a.m. were sporting frocks similar to this brand.  Ms. Markle above in the photograph is wearing a dress by Roland Mouret that sings the same silhouette.   Bottom line, these dresses are elegant, minimal and extremely flattering.  Additionally, for a royal wedding shoulders must always be covered accompanied by a fashionator, gorgeous pumps and a small handbag.  For us American's …

Mothers Day!

Let's Hear it for Motherhood!




We are all mothers both female and male.  We all have mothers.  You are a mother.  You may have a family or not. You might have given birth or not.  However, we are all mothers to every creature in our orbit.  If you are lucky, you give yourself to others everyday, to your pets, to your friends, to your children and to those we love.  Each day is a gift to be cherished.  So, on this special day, may all of us mothers take a moment and notice the beauty around.  You are blessed. You truly are no matter your circumstances. Do something nice for yourself.  Buy some flowers, eat cake, give a hug, smile and be thankful.   If your mother is still with you then give her a hug and thank her for your life and all she has given you.  And, let's remember the mothers who have passed for they breathed life into you and gave you so much.  They too reside in your heart.  Ah, it is a glorious day. 







Happy Mother's Day!
