The Travel Tag

“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”  ~ Saint Augustine Thank you so much Dannii Jane of A Beautiful Thing for nominating me for the Travel Tag. If you haven’t read her blog, please check this London fashionista out! Her space is the perfect blend of fashion, books, eateries, and of course travel all ….

My Gemini Twin

“I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it not for that handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy. Let’s face it, friends make life a lot more fun.” ~ Charles R. Swindoll I am a firm believer that people come into our life at times when we need that particular personality or traits ….

Island Time

“The general knowledge of time on the island depends, curiously enough, on the direction of the wind.” ~ John Millington Synge Yes Island time really is a real thing! A thing that even this Type A personality adores to pieces. I honestly had no idea what to think or expect before I arrived in the community of Ocean Beach on ….

What DO I Wear!?!? The Recycled Edition!

“Fashion is about dressing according to what’s fashionable. Style is more about being yourself.” ~ Oscar de la Renta Finishing out my wedding season for the summer, I decided to rewear (gasps!) an outfit I had worn at the beginning of the summer.  Oh the horror! Thankfully it was a different crowd so no one would know this fashion faux pas. Unless, they ….

Wanderlusting in My City

“Autumn in New York, why does it seem so inviting?” ~ Vernon Duke As a New Yorker I don’t really do the touristy things. In fact I don’t really go outside my neighborhood bubble.

Pumpkin Spice Lattes

“Coffee is a language in itself.” ~ Jackie Chan I stand in line behind throngs of people impatiently waiting to order their jolt of much needed caffeine before headed to work. The pliantness of summer is behind us and the frenzy of fall has begun. Even Starbucks is ready with Pumpkin Spice signs every where. I could blame my sister for my ….

What DO I WEAR!?!? You Make Me Blush Edition

“Fashion is about good energy. It’s about feelings. That’s what I have to give the people, good energy and good feelings.” ~ Adriana Lima Accessories make an outfit and pull any outfit from drab to fab in seconds. It can also change how an outfit looks dramatically. One of the colors of fall (pulled from summer) is blush pink with more ….

Fall-ing in Love

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” ~ Albert Camus As a child I grew up in one of the prettiest mountain towns in the country. Of course it usually occurred in the fall. With leaves changing exquisite colors, and the air crisp but not yet chilly. You couldn’t help but fall in love with fall. ….

New York Love

In the last 24 hours I have been on a rollercoaster of emotion. I have sat down numerous times since last night trying to put into words what I am feeling and failing miserably. The one thing I can write is how incredibly grateful I am for all the love my friends and family bestowed on me the last 24 hours. I thought I ….
