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…

Change Has Arrived

New adventures lie ahead.  I've left my full time job in college admissions and am now full time into mine and Hunter's business.  I'm working on a few other ventures so when I know more I'll follow up on that.

I spent 6 years working at my last job and while I always knew I would go to my business full time eventually, it hasn't truly hit me that I'm not just taking some vacation time and spending a few days away.  I'm ready for my new normal though.

It's times like this I love having a lifestyle blog.  I'll look back on this post at some point and the thoughts had, the feelings felt will all come back.  This is a big milestone, leaving a corporate type job and going full speed as a small business owner.  Yay!!

I've got big plans for the next.  Excited for what's to come.



Let's meet again,

Blogtober Day 26, Who would play you in a movie...

Ohhh good one, Blogtober.

Someone once told me I reminded them of Drew Barrymore. They didn't say if it was for look or personality, so I'm not sure where they drew the conclusion from. See what I did there?

I threw this out to one of my very best and oldest friends Andrea. Talking it out, we agreed that Drew and I do share some similar qualities, both in personality and in dressing and accessorizing. Andrea reasoned that Drew is quirky and a little less traditional, much like me. I reasoned we have the same headbands:

I also recalled that when I was a little girl, everyone thought I looked like a young Drew Barrymore. Both my parents have said people would come up to them all the time and remark on my resemblance to her in that movie Firestarter:

Whatever it is, I would absolutely be pleased if Drew played me in a movie.

Now, if Penelope Garcia was a real person and not a character on a TV show (Criminal Minds), she would undoubtedly play me in a movie:
