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.

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. …
