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.

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. …
