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?

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…

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 …

"With freedom comes responsibility." Eleanor Roosevelt
Parades, apple pie, contests, hamburgers, friends, family, and fireworks are the essential ingredients for a celebratory Fourth of July.  This year will be unforgettable as the Covid 19 virus has changed the celebration landscape.  The large gatherings, festivities and essential mix of fun are on the shelf across the country.

Growing up in the Northwest, we had sparklers, black snakes, and fountains to light off in the driveway. We attended barbecues with family or friends and watched…
