Silence

There was a time in my life when solitude meant loneliness. Now it means an opportunity to reflect. I reflect on things I have said, what I have spent my time doing, and what I want to spend my time doing in the days ahead. I hope today you too will enjoy silence and reflect…. read more

Scout’s Honor

It’s that glorious time of year. Girl Scout cookie selling season is almost upon us! In their honor I too will be pimping cookies in this post. Since my own Girl Scout days I have been passionate about these sweet treats. Thin mints, samoas, peanut butter patties – I have a serious issue with portion control…. read more

Dear Sentimentalist

Dear Sentimentalist, I am loving your regular updates and so thought that you might be the person to ask some fashion advice. We are off on spring break soon and I would love to treat myself to a new bikini. I remember you were wearing a very groovy bikini last summer and that it was… read more

Five Friday Favorites (For The Boys)

kilgore-antgold-angle

Men, I care about you. I really do. I know up until this point my content has leaned more towards my female audience, but this post is my attempt to redeem myself. This week I’ve brought you a few of my favorites for men. You all role your eyes and pretend our inclination to shop drives you… read more

Tough As Nails

I almost never get manicures. When I do, I wish I did more. Then I get home, chip it doing dishes, and I am annoyed. It just doesn’t seem worth it. I’ve been known to do the occasional one coat of Essie’s “Sugar Daddy” just prior to a big night out, but that really is… read more

Why Women Matter

Am I a feminist? Yes. What does that mean? It means that I, in all facets of life, believe that women (young and old) deserve the same rights as men. The reason we deserve those rights is because we have just as much to bring to the table. For me, in this day and age,… read more

I will try.

This week I will channel a little more Mother Teresa in everything I do. I will not gossip, and I will give someone an unexpected compliment. I will fearlessly give love to many people. I will pray for someone who feels lonely and unwanted. I will call a friend I haven’t spoken to in too… read more

Five Friday Favorites

Things I am loving right now… Imagine the options. I bought 2 of these for each of my minis earlier this winter, and I threw 2 XL in the basket for me too. (*Secret tip – shopping the girls/teen section can yield major rewards for adults too.) It’s great for layering and will be adorable… read more

Bananarama!

Ooh! Ahh! Warm muffins. What a way to start the day! This recipe is great because it is egg, nut, and dairy free. That makes it the ideal baked good to bring to school when it is your turn to make snack. Wondering how they taste without eggs and dairy? I promise they are moist… read more

Look Love Buy

KarolinaLOD

 LOOK This look below on Karolina Kurkova just rocks. I’d add a pair of opaque black tights and this would be my classic “day into night” outfit. It would be perfect for next time I am in NYC for an afternoon of errands and then meeting John for dinner. A chunky black scarf is one… read more
