Happy New Year! This is the forth year I have purchased the Stendig Calendar. It is so big and really makes for a functional piece of art in your home. Not to mention it is great for writing on, sticking birthday invitations to, and anything else that is important that you don’t want to lose. The extra bonus for me is my daughter loves coloring on the back of the pervious month (you tear each month off to get to the next).
Beginning a new year always gives me a reason to set new goals! This year my husband put my goals in an excel spreadsheet so I can measure my progress. How lucky am I that my husband is a master in excel… and great cheerleader that always calls me out when I start slacking or giving up? If you are making a new year resolution this year….WRITE IT DOWN. Come up with a plan on how to make it happen (legally of course). Whether you succeed or fail it is about the journey and learning from your mistakes.
Attach this stamp to your keys and you will always have a business card handy. I love this concept… simple, convenient, and always stylish!
This video was shot in Seattle and is a big hit around work. Take a look at all the props and wardrobe changes….. wowzzer this was a lot of work. If you love thrifting, here is your new theme song!
Watch this fashion documentary. You will smile….. I sure did

On a recent 4-day photo shoot, I some how managed to lose my garment bag carry-on suit case. Literally after the shoot was over and everything was all packed up, I asked my assistant where the piece of luggage was. We were both extremely tired and dumb founded. Come to find out that Tumi no longer makes that style of luggage any longer. Sucks…especially since I had to be reminded of how expensive luggage can actually be. My man wanted me to replace his carry on with the model below. Yikes…. $1,400 bucks for a carry-on. I need a new handbag before home-boy needs a new business trip suit-case.
The luggage store was a bit overwhelming. There were tons of ugly, heavy, over-priced pieces of luggage. Than I found this and my search was over.
Ok….. so my new carry-on has nothing to do with replacing the luggage I lost. It just feels good to replace my colorful Betsy Johnson carry-on with something a less loud. (Pictures later) Now for some Luggage Shopping Tips
Have a great weekend!
Peeps are one of my favorite parts about Easter. The pink and yellow ones taste the best!
As much as I love eating Peeps, they are like Krispy Kreme donuts, you can’t have just one bite.
These nutritional facts are more for me, than you. I like the idea as using them for art verses as food, because once I get ahold of Peeps, I can’t stop eating them.
Yesterday, as I stepped on the treadmill The Ellen Show was on. She was promoting her new JCPenny commercials. As I watched the commercials I remembered reading how JCPenny was getting a make over. A complete makeover, a new logo, new store layout (creating a bunch of mini stores in store), new marketing, and new pricing (no more coupons ever, just lower prices up to 40% lower).
As I continued watching Ellen I thought about how likable Ellen is
* She is super stylish
* Has a super hot wife
* Made an amazing comeback (remember she came out of the closet, her tv sitcom bombed and to top it off got dumped by Anne Hache)
I absolutely love Ellen’s style. It is simple, classic, casual and always men’s wear inspired. Oh’ and she always rocks cool tennis shoes!
I just love a good makeover. Even if it is a good logo makeover.
New Years has come and gone. What’s left??? Barely stocked shelves, finial sale items, bright spring colors, valentines day merchandise, and an extra 7 pounds on my body from last three months that won’t go away …. (my husband would say the last 5 months). Either way putting on un-wanted weight sucks, and what sucks even more is how long it takes to come off. What ever your new’s year resolution might be write it down, and put it in your bathroom mirror (so you will be forced to see it everyday). My new’s years resolution isn’t to lose my 7 pounds but to make a conscious effort of how I take care of myself. While looking up recipes on foodnetwork.com, I came across a 5 minute video clip of Alton Brodwn was summing up “his” 4 major food groups. You can’t get any more simple than this.
Group 1 – What you should eat every day
fruits, whole grains, nuts, leafy greens, carrots, green tea
Group 2- What you can/ should eat at least 3x’s a week
Group 3- What you can eat once a week
Group 4- What you should never eat
soda (club soda does not count)
processed meals/frozen dinners
canned soup (because there is so much salt)
PLUS: Eat breakfast every day, no exceptions.
Simple…right? Simple but hard I know. When I go grocery shopping I stick to the outer area of the store and stay out of the aisles. That way I have freshest ingredients in my cart. You will always look and feel more comfortable in your clothes when they actually fit you. Silly that food sometimes equals fashion. But think about, there are so many trends you can’t wear if you are not confident in how your body looks. Ugh… I know…but if you really think about it when do you feel the most sexy.
My daughter was just gifted the coolest coloring book ever by Nina Chakrabarti.
This coloring book is a combination of doodling, fashion pictures to color and things to draw.
