The NaNoWriMo Prelude

Happy Halloween my lovely readers! While everyone is getting their goblin and ghoul on, I am preparing for a writer’s dream (or perhaps nightmare?) Though I have written quite a bit of poetry, I don’t often publish it. In fact my last poem was posted a year and a half ago. Oy vey! But when the two AM muse strikes, you go with it. ….

Chasing Heights and Facing Fears

“Believe in yourself, take on your challenges, dig deep within yourself to conquer fears. Never let anyone bring you down. You got to keep going.” ~ Chantal Sutherland  I had a friend visit me a couple weeks ago, and of course living in the city we had to do some of the touristy things. Alas some of those touristy things ….

What DO I Wear?!?! Welcome to Sweater Weather

“Sweaters are a closet staple. They look great under a leather vest or with a pair of tailored trousers.” ~ Nina Garcia Now that the weather has finally, FINALLY, gotten colder I can now pull out my heavier sweaters and rock some of the sweater trends that are in style such as cut out, cowl neck, off the shoulder, and tunics. ….

The Pull of a Hallmark Holiday Movie

“Hallmark makes beautiful films that feel as if they should be watched in a theater. The Hall family knows the power of stories, and they give us unforgettable movies with heart and depth and the resonance of classics.” ~ Luanne Rice This weekend marks the beginning of Holiday movies on Hallmark. Where for two months I don’t have a life ….

The Good in Social Media

“Social media has given us this idea that we should all have a posse of friends when in reality, if we have one or two really good friends, we are lucky.” ~ Brene Brown I have found that the bashing of social media, has become a common theme amongst media platforms. In fact many of the people who bash social ….

Fall Fun at the Fryeburg Fair

There is nothing more fall then going to a fair. It screams quintessential New England. Oh there are many different types of fairs, ….

Farm Life in the Autumn

“Autumn in New York, why does it seem so inviting?” ~ Vernon Duke You can take the girl out of the country but you can’t take the country out of the gal. Despite my love for the city, I also hold a deep appreciation for fresh air, seeing the sun as well as the stars, and wide open spaces as ….

What DO I Wear?!?! Ode of Giving the Brow

“Eyebrows are really important because they structure the face. In school it was funny because I was always the one walking around with tweezers plucking my girlfriends’ eyebrows. I was really good; eyebrow tweezing runs in my family – my mother used to do mine, and I picked it up.” ~ Rita Ora  Ahhh eyebrows. I swear they are the ….

The Misnomer that Time Heals all Wounds

“The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living.” ~ Marcus Tulles Cicero  People say time heals all wounds. It truly depends on what kind of wound it is. For some wounds, like those caused by death, even the best handcrafters can’t glue back a shattered heart to the way it was before. But you do learn from it, ….

What DO I Wear!?!? Flirty. Fun. Fall. Fashion.

“There’s design, and there’s art. Good design is total harmony. There’s no better designer than nature – if you look at a branch or a leaf, it’s perfect. It’s all function. Art is different. It’s about emotion. It’s about suffering and beauty – but mostly suffering!” ~ Diane von Furstenberg  Though I may be a mermaid at heart, their is ….
