Monday's Favorite Things



What I Love This Week - 

Eric Javits Sun Hats





"The bluest skies you've ever seen are in Seattle"


Sunshine in the Pacific Northwest is finally here in full force.  I absolutely love it when the sun soars in the bluest of skies bedazzling the trees, the lakes, rivers, and mountains turning our home into a majestic paradise.  Moreover, we need to protect our skin while our environment glistens as the sun dances upon us.  At least, I do.  I thrive in the sun, though the rays are extremely hard on my skin.   

Over the years, I have suffered from serious sun and heat rashes.  Thus, on trips, in my back yard or on the water, you will always find me wearing SPF sun shirts, sun hats, lots of sunscreen and sitting in the shade if possible.  

We all know and understand the power of the sun and the damage it can do to our skin.  We need the Vitamin D and love to lavish in the rays.    For me, I need extra potent protection.  As a result, I have invested in my favorite sun hats by Eric Javits. 

You cannot go wrong wearing a stylish sun hat.  These numbers are expensive, but the outcome is perfection.  They block 95% of the UVA and UBA rays.   Some of them do not have the protection, so you need to decide, which suits you best.   Enjoy the sunshine, be brave, be courageous, be fearless and be a light to others like the sun. 



LOTS of  Rainbow Colors

For the first time, in my life, I will not be going in-store for the sale.  I am positive many like me will do the same. Ever since, I was in high school, the Nordstrom Anniversary Salehas been an exciting event for me.  Grab a coffee, meet a friend and purchase clothes. We usually see other friends and spread the word on what is hot.  No doubt, the year 2020 will be one for the history books.  
If someone had told me in 2019, that everything I love in life would be halted because of a pandemic in 2020, I would have thought not possible.  As we all know, when the virus appeared, every…

Pleasure for You


"A grateful heart is a magnet for miracles"
Each day is a gift and being grateful for your life, your home, your friends and family is enough.  I find writing everyday about what I am grateful for in 2020 provides contentment and peace.   The Five Minute Journal as mentioned in previous posts, is a must-have for all of us living through the year 2020.  It is a wonderful way to start and end your day.  Millions of successful people take the time to remind themselves of their blessings.  Of course, shopping for yourself, within a budget, can create brightness to any day.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - Take Three - Jeans & Tops

The Perfect Combination


Since we no longer are attending events that we enjoyed in 2019, our needs for formal wear is not a priority this year.  However, I do believe in dressing up daily with a flattering top or a bit of color for a lift of hope and cheer.  What I have found refreshing as of late, is the ability to visit restaurants and eat outdoors.  Everyone seems upbeat, happy and joyous to be participating in the simpler thrills of life.  The women have taken time to look lovely and are sporting pretty clothes.  After all, our beautiful pieces are just waiting to be worn.  
Additionally, the new norm for most is working from the home, which is a significant change for everyone. Thus, a great pair of jeans and a beautiful top will look and make you feel professional.  It is important to dress for success even if you are in your office or at the kitchen table.  Fix your hair, put on your makeup, and add accessories.  Why not look your best?  You are a powerful woman.  Anyone in busin…
