Come Saturday – National Dance Day – I hope that answer is “Everyone!” Right now, I’m cloistered in my room with my computer (well, honestly, and some ice cream) editing a video to post tomorrow. Here are some screenshots from it. I have combined a variety of people enjoying dance ranging from my little cousins,… View Post »

From Nothing to Luxury Knits

St. John Knits B

That would describe Marie Gray, creator of St. John Knits. When I was growing up, her designs were my mom’s favorite, so naturally when she made an appearance in our hometown, I really wanted to meet her. What impressed me most was that even though I was only ten, and clearly not a customer, she… View Post »

Headband Haute

Today, we have a little headband history. As I was racing through Nordstrom to pick up something before dinner, I was stopped by – not just one but two – displays jam-packed with headbands. Some say that this fashion began when wreaths were placed on the heads of winning athletes at the first Olympic Games…. View Post »

Summer and Sundresses C

When the sun makes a command performance, I always get the urge to take a ferry to a beautiful island. Can a girl get more sun-appropriate attire for such an outing than a SUNdress? Today, for Fashion Friday, I’m featuring Forever 21 maxis and bangles. What I love about these dresses is that they can… View Post »

Crestfallen Over Crumbs

Crumbs A

Crumbs Bake Shop abruptly closed all its stores last Monday, July 7, and I’m in mourning. I’ve had an intense love for those cupcakes ever since I began traveling to LA for work. The over-sized treats were pure paradise. Never mind the fact that just one could top a whopping 600 calories. If that number… View Post »

Lately I’ve been a working machine, so yesterday I decided to take a break and hop on over to the nursery. This time of year, it has a bounty of blooms! How can a girl possibly select which ones to plant in balcony pots when there are so many choices? As you can see, while… View Post »
