Poncho and Suits: Walmart/Time and Tru

On my recent visit to small town America, I had the pleasure of staying under five minutes away from a Walmart. As a New Yorker living in one of the five boroughs, this is unheard of (except Queens). There is is Walmart at the Green Acres Mall in Queens, NY. Needless to say, I visited…

How are Your Habits Affecting Your Success?

The word habit is defined as a settled or regular tendency or practice, especially one that is hard to give up. I believe that when we hear that someone has a “habit” we often gravitate to thinking in the negative. We tend to think of obsessive drinking, smoking, lying, etc. Stuff the great books advises us…

You Cannot Fail

You know the adage, if you could do anything without fear of failure, what would you do? The reality of it is you would think in a state of the “sky’s the limit.” You would have no inhibitions because you would have no fear.  I know, this state of mind is not one that most…

Summer Goals: Not Just Sunsets but Streams (of Income).

I’ve recently been contemplating what I would like to achieve as a goal for the summer. I’ve already committed to eating better and getting to the gym more but I need a personal/financial goal. Something that I can see through for the next few months as well but I’m stumped.  Now more than ever, everyone…

Sun, Sand and Black Bathing Suits.

There is no season I prefer over Summer. You can take the crisp of the Fall leaves. You can have your fresh fallen snow. Give me the beam of the sun’s rays, the warmth of the ocean and crash of the waves. My daughter and I both share a love for the ocean. We can…

Dress Me Up

I confess. I do not wear dresses often. I love seeing a well dressed woman in a dress that flows over the body and I swear up and down every Spring and Summer that I will be that woman but alas, another season comes and finds me in blues jeans. I do have a few…

You Have To Remain Open To Receive All That You Are Meant to Have.

We’ve read your fair share of self help books and follow enough “go getters” to have heard every single affirmation known to man or woman but there are still those that resonate and really rings true every time we hear or, even better, practice them. “Ask and ye shall receive.” Yo, it’s biblical. The self…

Spring Outerwear: Blazer/Jacket Moment

It’s not warm enough for wearing only your shirts and tees but not cold enough for a coat. What’s a girl to do? Dig deep into your closet and pull out your light jackets and blazers. I know, it’s been a long winter but Mother Nature seems to be in a great mood and is…

Brick Wall and a Teddy Bear Coat

Who can resist snapping some pictures in front of a brick wall? Not one soul. The days are getting warmer but my little teddy bear fuschia jacket is perfect for these not so warm Spring days. Most people opted for the tan or brown teddy coats but this pink/fuschia color is perfect to usher in…
