Flirty Fun





"A piece of clothing should be like a work of art." Rosita Missoni


Inspiration and creativity are the cornerstone of any great endeavor or idea. I learned in my youth that they are several ways to achieve a goal. If you want the Bogner ski jumpsuit then you need to work.  There wasn't any other path to getting what I wanted.  So I worked during high school making money for what I desired and for college. And, felt fulfilled in achieving my goals. Additionally, many believe that if you always follow the path prescribed then you will achieve the outcome you desire.  For instance, if I get good grades, follow the education system for college dotting all the i's and t's as demanded along the way, I will be very successful.  Is this true?  For many yes, yet others who follow a slightly different path can become extraordinary. Take Bill Gates, who didn't finish college but followed his passion instead.  We all know the outcome. Those that think "out of the box" or "go around the rock in the road" usually find achievement or completion of a goal.   In other words, don't let someone tell you can't do something.  And, don't rely on someone else to make your dreams come true.  You are in charge.

What else makes a person feel satisfied? The actual art of learning something new or working on a project for hours combined with the ability to play well with others and to communicate succinctly.  The Wall Street Journal recently stated that communication in business is the number one priority.  The ability to write well plus speaking is required and expected.  Writing doesn't mean short texts. You also must also be willing to things that do not pertain to a job description.  Why?  You cannot create, become or achieve without starting at the bottom.  What is worthwhile takes grit, creativity and gumption to know that your dream, your goal takes hard work and one plus one often means one hundred.  In other words, seek out your creative mind, think broadly, think critically from all angles and walk with a purpose.  Remember creative achievement can be derived by what you deem worthy such as a career, a hobby, a mom etc. And, while you are at it - have a little fun with apparel.  After all it is the sunshine season and this is your life and your adventure.

Color is back in a big way this summery season.   A vivid hue brightens any day.  Aren't you ready to put away grey, blacks and browns?   So dull when the flowers are blooming, the sky is full blue, sun is shining and the world is in full blossom.  And, if it is raining where you live a little color goes along way to add glitter to your day.

The world is indeed your oyster.  You can be anything you want if you put your mind too it.  Sounds simple right? Of course, it isn't. After all, why do you want life to be easy?  Great feelings of accomplishment always come from your own efforts.  Hard work, persistence and imagination will put you on the road to success.  Don't wait to get started.  Put on your thinking cap, dream big and get to work.  And, while you are at your art desk of life add sparkle with a few color pieces, polka dots or anything that inspires you.  Life is an adventure.

Fourth Of July 2020

Home for the Holiday


"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. We ourselves are accustomed to celebrating in the islands viewing a parade, taking walks, wildlife adventures, exquisite dinners and viewing incredible fireworks that fill the sky.  Though this is year is unique, never fret. 
We have an opportunity to slip back in time and create an old fashioned Fourth of July at home.  Many of you are wondering what to do.  Well, think back to when you were little.  What did you do then? 
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…

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 …

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…
