Fashionably Four Eyes: Part Two

“I can’t think without my glasses.” ~ Vivienne Westwood Fashionably Four Eyes: Part One  A year ago June, I wrote a piece that went viral which not only shocked me (it is always interesting to me, what wins the post popularity contest) but even appalled my sense of vanity since a whole-lotta people saw me in my glasses.

Cadillac at Sunrise

Tiffany and I were suppose to drive up Cadillac Mountain to see the sunrise. We had gotten up at ….

Cranberry Isles

Back to MDI I Go…

“We are all travelers in the wilderness of this world, and the best we can find in our travels is an honest friend.” ~ Robert Louis Stevenson This past weekend, I traveled the 155 miles from my hometown in New Hampshire up to Mount Desert Island to see my Mertwin, Tiffany. I had literally been looking forward to this trip ….

What DO I Wear?!?! The NEW LBD
