It's Time to Celebrate!






Every year we celebrate the Fourth of July with hope, love and joy.  We surround ourselves with family, friends and others who are thankful for their life in our great nation.   We partake in parades, outings, eat, drink and be merry while watching fireworks all in the name of freedom.  Yes, I am proud to be an American.  I hope you all have a wonderful Fourth of July in this great year of 2018.  Here are a few fashion picks of red, white and blue to sparkle your day.  Hand me a sparkler - please!!


Shopping Myth: Spend Less, Buy Bargains will save you Money! -  Not! 

Recently at a summer soiree - I wore an expensive classic pair of pumps that I have owned for eight years - walked and danced the night away.  My feet did not hurt in the slightest at the end of the night. You can purchase cheap apparel and shoes but you will pay the price physically and the item will not last years to come.  Thus, you ultimately will spend more money by buying less quality items at a discounted price.  You think you are saving money but really you are not. You will repeat the purchase next year and the year after and so on.... Be wise.  A penny saved is a penny earned. 

Wrap Up!

Life is a Gift

A River Called Life



"Life is a precious gift.  Use your day wisely." 

Life is a river.  A thriving, glorious flowing body of water that twists and turns filled with fish, beavers, small creatures, birds, eagles, violent eddies, rough waters, and calm pools. Or in our case as human beings doing the best they can as they spend each day rambling down the river of life.  An actual river flows downhill from the force of gravity.  The waters can be wide and deep or shallow to walk across.  This river can be called a stream, creek, or brook.  A once serene rushing river can turn into a flooding nightmare covering land, filling houses, and changing landscapes.  Just like humanity spinning towards the unknown.   
Life can be tranquil at moments and then burst into a storm of anger, disbelief, or tragedy.   A life is easily compared to a roaring river as transitions in our world are extremely rapid.  It can be difficult for the human mind to assess what has transpired.   The result is be…

Summer Sunshine - Strong & Healthy

Paint My World in Sparkling Hues




Summer is in full swing and dressed in opportunity and hope. Are you listening closely? Are you watching the world you inhabit?  For example, have you ever noticed how fish in the ocean light up their world with daring hues of color?  While dripping in tones of paintings, they live in harmony with one another, while fighting to exist and stay alive. Their vivid scales are uplifting and spellbinding.  We too love color and summer is the perfect time to surround yourself in tones of sunshine.  The power of the mind, how we fill it, what we eat, how we work out and what we wear expresses summer thankfulness. 
Bring on bold hues to make us sing with excitement and contentment.  After all, we cannot change what is happening in our world.  We can only control ourselves.   Shout, dance and live in stains of color filling the day with new opportunities and lessons.  Gladly, like me, many in the media are hearing the call to spread positive vibes and tones of gla…

7 Ways to Become a 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?

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 …
