My Lips, My Lovely Lady Lips

I get compliments all the time about my lips. It is a feat unto itself because for years I have dreamed about having the Angelina Pout. Those thick sultry lips, that with one look make men and women alike die. Alas I am stuck with my pencil thin lips, that make you have to squint really hard or you will ….

Bikini Season

Summer is just around the corner (hopefully!) and you know what that means! Bikini season! If you are like I am, you know that can be the kiss of death for any beach fun. As a teenager who had skater thighs and an arse that has been around long before Beyonce made it bootylicious, I lived in shorts or dresses ….

Skating’s Heart of Gold

This  week skaters are taking the stage at TD Garden in Boston. Before the competition even started their was drama and shake ups with injuries, doping allegations, and withdrawals. One such withdrawal led to Mirai Nagasu stepping up to the plate for Team USA. Thursday night she delivered. Maybe not in standings, she showed the world and her own federation ….

The Scent of a Woman

A woman’s perfume tells more about her than her handwriting. ~ Christian Dior In true Gemini form I have many personalities, calm, crazy, bookish, sensual, nun-like, adventurous. I am a walking book of dualities. While fashion can emulate that, from yoga chic to old Hollywood glamour, it is my perfume that resonates the true depths of my emotion. From fruity ….

Fancy Fridays

I once had someone tell me you couldn’t get dressed up “around here.” By here being in New Hampshire and Maine. It was a tad insulting, as she stared at my Tory Burch shoes, White House Black Market jeans, and coordinated shirt jacket and scarf, all from Anthro. She left off the fact I didn’t belong in my hometown, but ….

Ancedotes in my Old Age

You might think that love will conquer all, but it doesn’t. Hard work does. Kim K and Beyonce did not make the derriere cool, we can thank Da Vinci and Michangelo for that. Acquaintances are fleeting, friendship leaves a lasting imprint on your heart. So does love, whether good, or really really shitty. Siblings are the first friends you will ever ….

SeaMilligan Designs

It started with a like and it was love at first Instagram pic. Sometimes fate has an interesting way of matching people up. In this instance a sea glass junkie consumer with a sea glass jewelry designer. A perfect fit! I love jewelry. It is the one accessory, whether it be bracelets, necklaces earrings, rings, – anything that falls into ….


To say my hair hates me and I am a hairdresser’s dream is a duality of understatements. I have done everything from perms to straightening treatments to dying my hair every color of the rainbow. Thankfully my hair is strong and knock on the whole Redwood Forest has never fallen out. How? I have no idea. I have even dyed ….

Gaining Perspective

  I am blessed to have been raised in a place, where the exquisite mountains and quaint small town setting could have come from a painting. Growing up, I was constantly hiking. Scaling mountains and channeling my inner Leo by being king of the world. But I truly was king, or queen of the world. You can’t stand on top ….


I was excited for my Disaster! date. And yes I am joking. It was not a “disaster,” Far from it, but I wouldn’t want to make this Fifty Shades (Ahem totally kidding Mom and Dad) so alas I will keep this Disney rated. I digress, the show I went to last night was called “Disaster!” The musical, and while they ….
