But text messages are not something we keep in a scrapbook, hang on the wall, or display in the house. When we travel, sure, we take lots of photographs, but […]

Scenario: You have been invited over for a summer barbecue, party, or housewarming, and you want to bring a gift, but you are having trouble deciding on that special thing. In a case like this, it’s a good idea to think a little outside the box; while a bottle of wine or Grey Goose may […]

* * * One of the things people used to hire me for when I was a fashion stylist (along the lines of Stacy London), was to visit their closets, see what they had that worked, and recommend new wardrobe possibilities for them. Depending upon whether they stayed at home with children or worked for […]

* * * White looks fabulous with a tan. It helps your skin glow and feels carefree and airy during the hot, humid days of summer. Adding white pieces to your wardrobe lightens things up a bit, and if you don’t have a lot of white clothing, you may want to consider getting a few […]

* * * According to Empower Yourself with Color Psychology, the color pink “represents compassion, nurturing, and love” and, apparently, the deeper the pink, the more “passion and energy it exhibits.” Many people consider the color pink a very feminine color, but this perception was not true back in the 1920s.

* * * “Every girl needs a turquoise beachcomber,” I said to my husband two nights ago when I convinced him that the turquoise bike featured above is a must-have for my health and well-being. “But you already have a bike,” he said. It’s true. I do. But not one that looks as cute and […]

I guess you could say I’m somewhat blessed. I come from a long line of Italians and inherited medium olive skin that tends to be oily. The nature of my skin alone helps keep the wrinkles away…a little. Most of us have to take good care of our skin—myself included, especially as I approach the […]

* * * One of the things I like to do in my down time—the little bit that I have—is spend time tending to our new cottage-styled garden.

When I was a little girl, my mother bought me a book. It had a brown cover with yellow writing, and I read it over and over again, fascinated by the life of the man on which the book was based. He had grey hair, round spectacles, and a jolly look on his face. He […]
