7 Black Friday Shopping Tips & Happy Thanksgiving 2018



Grateful this Holiday Season










Coming together during Thanksgiving can be a joyful time filled with laughter, love and a thankfulness.  In 2018, there is so much to be appreciate from our friends, family and the glorious beauty around us everyday.  Perhaps you have had blinders on and have let  negative energy become your calling card.  It is so easy when the world at large is similar to scenes from Alice in Wonderland with a Mad Hatter Tea Party constantly percolating in the background of life.   The daily bombardment of anger and hate has a tendency to seep into cracks with social media and media constantly chirping.  Yet, with a swift turning off the negative Nelly's and Ned's, suddenly the world is once again delightful and filled with love.   I am not saying put your head in the sand but instead be grateful for what you have and let the negative whirlwind dissipate.  Especially, when we are heading into the holiday season.  Don't let the holidays be divisive because others think differently.   Embrace them, empower yourself and look only for the good in others.

As you fill your plate this Thanksgiving Day, remember those that have passed, those in need and those in pain.  Say a prayer for them.  Have a festive day, dress up and then relax with family and friends.

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
