So much to do, So little done, Such things to be - E.Taylor (1932-2011)

Elizabeth Taylor passed away today. She's been in poor health for a while so I don't know why I'm as saddened/surprised as I am. Any of my coworkers within ear shot probably think I'm completely nuts since I gasped and grasped my desk when the headline popped up. I suppose it's because Elizabeth was a symbol of perseverance..determination..strength. Whether it was her never give up on love attitude, her ability to stand straight up to adversity, or simply her impeccable style, Elizabeth Taylor executed some very key elements of womanhood.

For decades women longed for those catlike eyes, that stylish and charitable lifestyle, and come on now, the jewels man! My "storage-closet-turned-accessories-dressing-room-by-my-beloved-Bubsy" is merely a clutch compared to the Birkin purse of a room Ms. Taylor accumulated over her years. Gorgeous and glorious she was and she will be insanely missed by all who admired her for as many reasons as she had carats.

Such a bittersweet moment to cherish; the world lost one of the most compassionate activists, yet sweetly enough Ms. Elizabeth rejoins some of her very special friends. As a matter of fact, Elizabeth and MJ are surely to be grooving to his Greatest Hits by now.


Their afterlife, what a Thrill-er.

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T.

While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”.

Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration:

Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better.

Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See what I did t…

Roni ate a crayon

The middle part. Perhaps like real food, is this the juiciest part? I don’t know why or what got into her but she not usually isn’t a newer or eater of non edible items. My girl is sophisticated; enjoys edamame with a little sea salt, broiled chicken, and sweet potato dog cookies, she’s not some gremlin with an anything goes pallet.

The number one thing that has changed with Roni since Pepper went to sleep would be her appetite. She eats, yes, but she’s veryyyyy particular. She won’t eat just to eat anymore. Like dogs do, she was always quick to scarf down food or treats because she worried Pepper would beat her to it. She be little but she is fierce when it comes to her grub.

                            Roni, girl!  You don't need to eat crayons! I'll meal prep for you, too!

Anyhow, we don’t love her new decision making abilities and would love it if she did not do such a mongrel thing to do. My little angel baby, love colorfully in a better way.
