Lion's, Tiger's and Leopard's - Oh My!




Hear Me Roar! 

Red Lips, Black, White, Grey and Silent Secret Weapon - Animal Print!






Your apparel, your appearance and your character does matter.  Your personal style is a powerful tool of communication.  People will make an impression of you within 30 seconds of meeting you.  So why not put your best foot forward and make an effort to appear presentable?  Now more than ever how you dress, what you wear, how you present yourself is so important.  You can think it doesn't but it does.  Duchess Megan of Sussex has transformed herself from being an actress into presenting herself as formidable, regal woman befitting her new role.   Meghan, like Duchess Kate of Cambridge, knows that standing tall, sporting a smile with simple and elegant apparel sends a lasting message of  "I respect myself and I respect the event and the people attending."  You will never find these two women wearing jeans with holes, sloppy coats or no makeup to an event or to a formal soiree.  They have learned the power of apparel and makeup.  Just as men know that a suit is more powerful in the public eye for the correct occasion.  You are what you wear. 

This fall animal print is stronger than ever.  Similar to the infamous red lip, black, white and grey clothing choices in your wardrobe the leopard, tiger print and lion hues are a silent secret weapon.  Animal prints never fail and send a strong message plus are roaring fun to adorn all year round.  Tiger prints are making an impact too in 2018.  Even camel hued pieces evoke the lion in all of us.  Which of course, leads me to the essence of being a lion.  Are you a lion? Do you know what a lion represents?

Lions symbolize strength, leadership, pride, nobility, majesty and courage.  Their roar is considered as one of the voices of Goddesses.  The scary and mesmerizing growl is noticed and draws you into something beautiful.  The lion is golden hued and has been symbolized by ancient civilizations and appears as family crests, coats of arms and national flags.  Lion goddesses are warriors. There is so much written about lions.  Thus, why not wear a leopard print, tiger print or the golden hue of a lion?  Step up your personal style with the roar of  leopard or lion and make an impression that will be remembered.  More importantly, you will personally become a Lion Goddess and feel the power of dressing for success.  Yes, your apparel and style does matter.  What are you waiting for?

Step out in fashion.  Expect the best for yourself.  And, wear the best you can afford.  Do not be afraid to be a Lion Goddess.   Stand tall, speak with conviction, be open to others and become the person you are meant to be in this life.  Yes, wear your Leopard, Tiger, and Lion apparel with a roar.  It does matter.  More importantly, you do matter.  Here us roar - Lion Goddesses.

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
