Shop Small

“Behind every small business, there’s a story worth knowing.” ~ Paul Ryan For the next five days it seems like it is one major shopping event after another. From Black Friday to Cyber Monday, stores and people go crazy as they scoop up the deals. While I love department stores like Nordstroms and Bloomingdales. And we all know what an Anthro ….

The Joy in Personalizing a Gift

I have had the pleasure of being subjected to fashion week and been so close (as in the ….

 “Acupuncture and cupping, more than half of the ills cured.” ~ Chinese proverb I admit I got a good chuckle the other night watching the Olympics.
