New Year - A Gift - David Yurman Style



It's a New Year, New Day - and a New Chapter!

  Yurman Style That Is!






As a another chapter of our lives begin to close, we often take time to reflect on our accomplishments, our choices, our family and friends.  Was the year fruitful? Did we experience life to the fullest?  Were there moments of great joy combined with sadness that happens in the course of a year? Hopefully, yes.   Life is filled with many twists and turns and the unexpected is always at the forefront.  When ones tries to control their own destiny, or heaven forbid others, often disappointment arrives promptly at ones door.   Why? Because you cannot control what is coming whether it is good, bad or indifferent.  You cannot control another persons life nor would you ever want too.  The journey is theirs and not yours.  If you are lonely, then join a club, a board, work or pick up a new hobby.  Many of my wonderful friends have started painting, sewing, working as hospice caretakers or are masters at entertaining groups.  The options are endless with community and connections abound. Or change your life if you are not where you want to be at this very point.  A new year is coming.   A new day and a new glorious chapter. 

On Christmas Day, we went and saw Jumanji - Welcome to the Jungle.  The movie was entertaining, funny and a great topping to a fine holiday with family.   One of the most important scenes was with Danny Devito at the end of the film.   His character was a grumpy old man in the film with a creative turn of events.  See the movie to enjoy the magical spell.   However, in this scene, he states, "Getting old can be challenging.  But really - getting old is a gift".  "Getting old is a gift a blessing."   Repeat it, "Getting old is a gift".  So don't despair if you are turning another year older.  Be thankful. Love your lines on your face and your body.  Life is simply a marvel.  It is the small things that make one happy.  It is the people you touch on a daily basis, it is how you enter the world everyday.  Do you again reach out to others? Do you connect or just talk about yourself?  Are you a participant?  We know it isn't travel, because you always have to come home.  Travel and vacations are educational, relaxing and fun.  Yet, these fine moments are not your life. They are touch-points.  Your real life is what you have built at home.  Your family, your friendships, your physical home, your life surrounding your daily existence. Many people are "runners" racing too and fro and never sitting still and taking a moment to reflect.  They seem to be not at peace.  Are you at peace?  If your life is not what you want, then why not change it?  And, if you love your life, then you are indeed blessed. Embrace and give thanks.  Another year is a beautiful gift.  Yes, getting older is a indeed magnificent.   Anticipate the best, visualize the best and grasp what is yet to come. 

While you are reflecting on your incredible journey in 2019, why not start with a little bling to represent another glorious year ahead.  David Yurman's exquisite pieces are indeed memorable.  After all, we need to spread beauty in this life.  So, sparkle brightly in the new year of 2020.

Yes, 2020 will commence shortly.  Savor, reflect, journal and give thanks for the year of 2019.   Get excited, make new goals, embrace your life and bring in 2020 like a lion.  The best is yet to come.  It is definitely a new year, a new day and a new chapter.  For those who are ill or suffering, may peace and happiness come your way.    Finally may all of us brighten our days with laughter, love, peace, many smiles, kindness and faith.  Are you ready to open your new chapter?  I am and I hope you are too.





Until The New Year 2020!  Be Kind. Be a Light. Be Thoughtful.



Cheers, Kim

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 …

Monday's Favorite Things - Sunglasses

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. …
