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, many had compromised immune systems and became sick easily, which makes perfect sense.

Our bodies must continually fight bacteria daily.  If not, then the body starts fighting from within, which attributes to the rise of all the autoimmune diseases, asthma, and skin issues.  The overly cleanliness of our homes may possibly give strength to these diseases.  Thus, so much to think about and decisions to make on health during this confusing time.  


Get Outside



"Choose only on master - nature." Rembrant

Many of us from a certain era have fond memories of being children.  We were so free and self sufficient.  We played in the streets, in the dirt, drank water from a hose and all the other crazy things we did. We, the lucky few, were outside after school until dusk.  No one was monitoring us, nor driving us anywhere.  We entertained ourselves, road bikes, read books in the sun, laid in the grass, played in the street, interacted and fought with others, which built character, grit and kept our bodies strong and minds curious.  Did we eat Hostess pies? Yes, we did but were always playing.  Additionally, there are studies on the correlation of an increase of white blood cells from being active outside in the environment. 

After all, are bodies were designed to be in the wilderness, desert or any terrain hunting and gathering.  We were never created to sit in front of a computer screen or television for hours on end.  Furthermore, as you age, you lose muscle tone.  You must work out harder, lift weights, change eating habits,  walking, playing catch or anything that puts you outside.  

The moral of the story is "keep moving."  Yes, be cautious of the virus.  Do want you need to do. Get out there with a mask.  Make time each day to "be active."  Your mind and body will appreciate your efforts and keep your immune system healthy. 

What does this have to do with active wear? Well, being in the elements means you require the best coverage for the world beyond your home.

The Ultimate Legging




"The richness I achieve comes from Nature, the source of my inspiration." Claude Monet

What I love?  I wear leggings almost every day to work out in during the fall and winter months.   It is important to be comfortable and to invest in basic hues plus a few colorful numbers.  I never wear work out leggings all day.  After exercising and taking a shower, I step into a flattering pair of jeans and combine with a top or sweater.  My goal is always try and look my best at all times.   You will feel better by taking care of yourself.

Classic Coach for Fall

  Summer Ending "We cannot direct the wind. But we can adjust the sails." Aristotle Summer is winding down as the weather cools, leaves are turning into glorious hues and breathtaking flowers are slowly wilting.  You can feel the shift in the air. Embrace the pending change with anticipation for pumpkins, colors of red, gold and yellow, falling temperatures, spider webs and the end of summertime.  Once again, we long for cozy sweaters, boots, coats, scarves and apparel designated for a fall landscape. Additionally, we are gearing up again for another roller coaster autumn.  Many events, trips, world upsets, work environments and basic daily life is shifting with uncertainty.  Of course, we cannot predict the future, yet Covid remains intact.  Hopefully more will become vaccinated, which in turn, helps end the present and immediate crisis.  The virus will become endemic with perhaps less fear and instead similar to the annual flu vaccines. To put this is perspective, the Spani

Kendra Scott - Jewels

"A Girls Best Friend"  Jewelry is equated to icing on a cake or a finale to a play or the ending of a scintillating novel. In other words, an outfit is just not complete without a dab of bling.   Whether wearing jeans, sporting work out gear, getting ready for work, an evening out or absolutely anything, a bauble of jewels is a necessity.  Or course, it is a juggling act because too many jewels makes one appear a bit desperate for attention.  You know the person, they walk into a room and everything from head to toe is sparkling and wiggling so that all is seen are the multitudes of  jewels rather than them.  The well dressed are always sporting minimal jewels.  Check out Golden Globes 75th - Fashion Highlights   for ideas from the red carpet.   The right amount is essential.
