RECOVERY ONE YEAR LATER

Nothing is more cliche than the expression, ‘Time flies!’ But there are no truer words because it seems that in a blink of an eye, months and years can pass in a flash. It’s been a year since my tummy tuck surgery and it feels like it happened just mere weeks ago. I recently went…

GREAT EXPECTATIONS

We made it! We’re hanging by scotch tape and safety pins, but we made it out of 2020 and hastily and hesitantly into the arms of 2021. What will it bring? Who the heck knows. The better question is, what will WE bring to it? The word ‘expectations’ comes to mind. I’ve mentioned in the…

WELCOME TO NY…AGAIN

How many times do you read and reread a caption you posted? I don’t do it all the time, but when I really really feel what I’ve written, I do re-read it and let the words and feelings simmer in me. If you conjure strong and powerful emotions, I like to be able to re-live…

RESILIENCE IN 2020

As we get ready to usher in a new month, and a big holiday one to boot, it’s almost instantaneous to feel the excitement and giddiness in the air! For many, holidays mean a time to celebrate, to be with family, to feel renewed and elated of good things to come, especially after the year…

WINTER WHITE MEMO

Well, the weather outside is……pretty much the same if you live in South Florida, but, if you live elsewhere in the country, you’re probably experiencing some variation of fall and/or winter. The good news though, you can pull out that winter white and start rocking those looks festively! Let’s be real- we’re all just eager…

TIME TO REFUEL

Insta-fam. I need a minute. Have you all ever felt like that? A much needed reprise from the day to day, a moment to just come up for air? I feel like we all hit or hopefully just tap that wall, before we need to reign it in and say, ‘whoa, nelly. let’s take a…

INTO THE UNKNOWN

Yesterday morning I took a zoom yoga class taught by a former colleague and friend, and as we were getting ready to do our breathing exercises, she read a passage from one of her books and it stuck with me all day. I wanted to explore it a little more and I thought that the…

IT’S TIME FOR A CHANGE

The last couple of days I’ve been really thinking about ‘how I want to show up.’ It came up in a recent podcast I was listening to and it stuck with me. How do I want to show up? Instead of focusing on some big, bad, over the top dilemma, I took a detour. ‘Showing…

YOU, ME, AND THAT LBD

It seems like my last few segments have been all about crisp summer whites, specifically the Little White Dress. Excuse me while I bring your attention back to the ever-so-timeless and classic, Little Black Dress. It’s a dress for all season and a must-have in every closet. That little black dress will never let you…

DUSTING OFF THE FAUX LEATHER

I feel like we’ve lived a whole other life since we went into lockdown in March and the world keeps on changing. Same goes for our clothes! Let me ask you. Was there a specific item of clothing or outfit that you bought right before this dumpster fire happened that you had big plans for?…
