Stocking Stuffers 2019

The Little Things Matter Most!

Do you remember growing up and excited to open your stocking?  There were always little wonders hidden in the sock that was just for you.  The joy of opening a tiny gift only to find out it was the best present of the day.  The delight in watching a child's eyes light up because of a small ball or something funny.   Create wonderment this holiday season.  Here are my little gifts with sparkle, shine and joy.

Hand Cream - The Best For The Winter Months - All Year Round

Kiehl's Ultimate Strength Hand Salve

Ponytail  Scrunchies Holders - Yes - The Best for Any Activity!  Pretty too. 

Daily Planner - Yes, Smart Phones are Divine - However, having a small daily planner keeps one tip top organizedCelebrities adore this planner.  Selling out fast. 

Crafted in England, 1908 design, leather and is luxurious and classic.  There is something to be said about having literally everything at your fingertips and visual.   Plus the act of writing stimulates the  brain and cements your appointments, to do list to memory so that you don't have to look up everything.  Seriously works.  Smartphones are genius but not the same.  You need the hand, eye and brain connection.  Several of my friends carry them around everywhere.  This is the perfect size. Several colors. 

Smythson Panama Pocket 2020

Kiehl's Buttermask For Lips - Wear at night and wake up with smooth and lush lips.  Really works.  I promise.  Almost out of mine. 

Dior Eyeshadow - Limited Edition - Love the colors for day and night.  Wear my daily. 

Happy stocking shopping.   Enjoy the wonders of this beautiful and joy filled season.

Until Next Time!  Be Kind. Be a Light. Be Thoughtful.

Sisterhood - Belonging

Connection is Everything

 "Once women find the sisterhood, there is nothing stronger." Zoe Kravitz
The last few months have been pivotal on proving what is important in life.  At least for me.  While reading numerous books, writing, working in my office, gardening, making dinner, watching Netflix, being with my husband, one powerful thought was apparent, "We need human connection especially, "The Sisterhood."
Having girlfriends is imperative along with your family and loved ones.  The sisterhood is a dynamic elixir that feeds our minds and souls.  And, yes, we can talk for hours, following tangents in conversations and often without garnering or wanting a solution to our angst.  We just want to "be." Men often are the opposite, and not always a fan of our ramblings. We love it that they want to "solve" the issue but we on the other hand just want to vent, analyze, and forget.   After all, we sisters need to state 20,000 words a day versus men …

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…
