Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - The Finishing Touch



Girls Got to Have Fun!



If you saw my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale piece, you are set for basics.  Let's now select burning numbers that bring you joy with perhaps some amusement, hidden mystery or charm.  Basic apparel always need a punch of color or accessories to finish off the ensemble.  

Thinking about spreading joy with apparel - are you doing this with friends in your daily life?  I have begun to wonder if being nice, grateful and kind has left the planet?  Luckily, I am blessed to have lots of kind and considerate friends but am sometimes taken aback when the idea of being thoughtful and mindful is forgotten.   Maybe it is shows like the Housewives that keep women on edge to believe it is okay to be mean girls?  Does it make one feel better about themselves?  Of course, none of us are perfect and we all make mistakes or say the wrong thing.   My mother always said, "You are not perfect. You will say the unexpected or voice your concerns without thinking. We are not robots or computers but human beings with emotions.  You are not perfect."  Once you make a mistake  always apologize without being a doormat.  And, if your friends are "truly friends" these minor moments are forgotten.  Yet, like the Housewives franchise, which by the way is driven by producers and writers, many hang onto grudges, words, slights either out of jealousy or having to be right or winning. Or the lack of being introspective and realizing it takes two to tango.  One of my good friends continually says to me "Life is short.  Love your life.  Be kind and you will find happiness."  While you contemplate my words and think of being kinder - peruse my latest on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  Seek out bliss inspired clothing or beautiful accessories to complete your unique look.   You are worth it. Be an inspiration. Be kind.  Spread the Kindness Movement

Books to Read - February 2021

  Read, Read, Read "We read to know we are not alone." C.S. Lewis Do you love to read? I do.  In fact, I always have a book on deck for my pleasure.  I wake up in the morning and carry my favorite novel downstairs.  It is how I start and end my day.  I am always reading.  It is my quintessential past time.  What do I like about the novels I chose?   I enjoy historical fiction with tales about the human condition.  Or I love stories told in a new place that I have never visited. Afterwards, I want to travel there and sink into the surroundings.  If I enjoy an author, I will read ALL  his or her books.  I tend to read books where the woman is the lead character.   I enjoy the strife, angst, and messiness of the characters' lives and how they prevail with strength, wisdom and love.  The struggle reminds me of the complexity of life and the beauty all in one snapshot.   Additionally, authors who share human drama, vivid details of the landscape and scenery plus poured their h

Happy Valentines Day 2021

  Love is in the Air!!!  Or is it Snow? "Where there is love there is life." Mahatma Gandi What Does Valentine's Day Mean to You?  It is snowing hard here in the Pacific Northwest.  We have eight inches, and it is still swirling down and covering everything.  The beauty of snow changing the landscape is a sight to behold.  Ever since I was a child, I have loved the snow.  We used to play endlessly in the streets building snowmen, having snowball fights, making snow angels, sledding and creating igloos. We did not go inside until we were cold, wet, and hungry.  We were always in the elements playing with friends or family members. The days of being a child without a care in the world are indeed cherished.  Today, I love the sound of kids playing in the snow.  It is wonderous.   Of course, Valentines Day 2021 for me is a winter wonderland.  Hopefully, we will continue to have power.  It remains to be seen.  Mother nature moves at its own pace and can never be accurately pr

Perfume Spritz - My Favorite Things

  Beauty in a Bottle "Perfume heralds a woman's arrival and prolongs her departure." Beauty is hard to describe.  The very essence of what is beautiful varies from person to person, culture to culture and land to land.  Perfume is similar to the idea of beauty. It is subjective.  Perfume is a mystery, and its elixir is a marvel. The scent becomes its own magic.  It is the lingering scent that creates a moment or recreates a memory of a person.  Whether it is spice, floral or warm notes of lavender or vanilla, a scent can bring immense comfort and pleasure.  What does stand the test of time is a signature perfume.  Perfume was created in 1340 for the Queen of Hungary.  Thus, the story of fragrances commenced.  Perfume remains at the top of everyone's list of "feeling good."  Additionally, perfume sales in 2020 were close to $34B.   We all have experienced being around someone who smells divine.  The scent is memorable and hard to capture in a bottle. Even in

Winter Fashion 2021

  The Chilly Artic "Good clothing is a passport to happiness." Yves Saint Laurent Yves St. Laurent Fashion Exhibit - Seattle Art Museum (2016) The winter of 2021 has been brutally cold across the country.  One for the ages. With snowstorms, bitter winds and ice, the frigid temperatures have seeped into everyone's bones.  Even places slated to be warm in February tend to be on the cooler side of the temperature gage.  Though, I must note that temps are slowly getting warmer in the sun infused states.  Beyond the weather, nerves remain flared as people struggle to get the vaccine, keep safe and bundled up all in one sweep.  The stress is at an all-time high.  It seems to me; we need to sit back and figure out how to be helpful to one another.  To be positive and appreciative for family and friends during these trying moments. We are closer to having everyone vaccinated and getting back to a semi-normal life.  In the meantime, we must be patient and diligent awhile longer.
