Monday's Favorite Things

  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's ,  Angry 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

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - Take Six - Makeup

  Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder "Give women the right lipstick and she can conquer the world."  Do you love makeup?  I do.  I always have enjoyed wearing red lipstick, bit of eye shadow, liner, mascara, and foundation to even out my skin tone.  Makeup gives me simple pleasure.  By the way, it is known fact that buying lipstick and wearing it will brighten your day.   Additionally, I even wear makeup (liner, lipstick with mask, and mascara) when I am off to tennis or working out.  Playing up your eyes is essential because the mask hides your face.  I do wear lipstick, so that when I am in my car, the mask comes off and there you have added color to your lips.  Why not?  This is our time!   Lights, Camera & Makeup  In our current world of online video, a spot of makeup is a must for live productions and film.  Of course, it is essential to have proper lighting and appropriate apparel to appear polished, confident and in charge.  Anyone who is ever in front of a camer

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - Take Four - Activewear

Get Shopping & Get Outside "The sun for a few trees and flowers but for the wide worlds joy." Henry Ward Beecher Hope everyone is doing well.  It is so important to exercise and get outside every day.  Keeping your body in good health is imperative.  The benefits of working out is ten-fold, whether you garden, walk, ride a bike, play golf, tennis, or jog around the neighborhood.  We were meant to move and not sit.  Even cleaning your house can be beneficial to your overall mental and physical health.   With the advent of the Covid 19 virus, many have been residing in their homes and waiting for a vaccine to release them to the outside.  This is folly at least for me. I recently listened to a podcast about the disease Polio which ripped through the world prior to the development of a vaccine.   When Polio was full force the affluent stayed home to avoid contracting.  As the vaccine became available in 1954, they finally came out of their houses.  Due to being homebound, ma

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 busi

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 - Take Two - Lingerie

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 2020 My previous post, Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - Hot Picks - Take One, highlighted the hot items that will sell out quickly.  They are the cream of the crop of the sale.  This "Take Two" article will focus on silky pleasures that add to mornings and evenings at home.  My mother believed in buying beautiful under garments for yourself.  I must agree.
