Boot/Bag LUST!

Dear bag...
I watch you from afar..
I guess I am obsessed.
You awaken feeling inside of me
You bring my heart beat to rapid speed and
tiny little sweat drops to my face.
I want you.. I want you bad...
I have GOT to have you..
You beautiful bag...

Effortless Prosperity- Day 14



I am aware that whatever I see is only a small part of the whole picture. Because I cannot see the whole picture, usually what I think is good for me is not, and what I think will hurt me is actually helpful. In opening myself to this knowledge, I finally understand that I can let go ...of taking a chance at being right or wrong, because my own best interest is what is always being served in my life. Today I give up resistance and recognize my own best interest.

Hug someone you normally would not hug. This is to be a sincere hug, not a quick one. What goes through your mind and how do you feel about yourself as you hug this person?

Affirmation: Peace is all I deserve
Remember to keep your word today.

Finding time for YOU

We are sisters moms managers writers teachers nurses entrepeneurs pots cooks maids designers dreamers lovers and miracle workers How in the midst of it all, do we find time for ourselves? Making time to do, what keeps you balanced, and happy and sane, may feel self involved, but it is self development self-esteem is built with the little shiny blocks of self-love. Do you give yourself time to enjoy yourself, be with yourself, and love yourself! You will be a better person for it. What are some ways you spend time loving yourself? One of my favorites, is a hot bubble bath, with a DVD and a glass of plum wine. I spend all the time I want, grooming, pampering and treating myself, and just being alone with me. I allow all the stress to fall away and melt away and I just feel in love with the person, the being, the spirit, and the stillness within me.


Let's face it, I am not the most flexible person on the planet, I am not even the most flexible person on my couch.
BUT I love yoga.
It loves me to, well it at least has a slight feeling similar to like, for me.

It is my quiet time to tell my body I love it. I love it enough to be centered within it.
I love it enough to stretch it out and open it up.
Yoga for me is almost emotional, it makes me feel grateful. Peaceful, and most of all I feel like I am being true -to - me when I practice.
It is my happy place.

Quiet Reflection

A new year is upon us and in hind sight, atleast for me, this has been one intense year full of dreams, change, obstacles, strength and growth.

As I make my list of goals for 2011, I think to myself, how can I streamline and center
my priorities and my thoughts?
How can I organize my life to make room for my dreams?


that's the answer to it all......

Turkey- A beautiful adventure with my baby


She loved this place, the ruins of Side, and this theatre has such amazing acoustics, that you can hear the stage from anywhere in the theatre, without a microphone.
She is my heart.
Teihani in Antalya and Attalia
The beautiful view from a yacht cruising past Kemer
Pool side chillaxin!
By far our favorite Turkish past time;)

I didn't take this photo, but I wish I could have seen Antalya from wherever this was taken!

Mustering up some "fashion-give-a-shit"

Thanks to inspiration from Ms. Mercado- I am going to devote an extra few minutes each day to muster up some fashion give-a-shit.

Cause I apparently removed my finger from the pulse of fashion quite some time ago, and replaced my give-a-shit edginess with

Umm- grey. Light grey, dark grey, black, dark blue denim, more denim, and more GREY. Some brown, some green, yeah….mostly grey.

My daughter kept saying to me that I needed to be more funky and my son told me to wear COLORS. I was like why? Then he said how about red Mom, or blue? I pointed to my stripe socks hiding under my wide legs, “there’s your red and blue”.

So I bought some converse, thinking that might add a little casual funk.

Didn't do the trick apparently. So I bought black casual boots, a couple belts to strap around and adorn my lose cardigans. But I never wear them. So, I bought some bright rain boots, a fedora and skinny jeans. Okay, so there is my start.

What about white cotton organic v-neck tees?

What about a cute green blazer on top of that organic v-neck tee?

What about some black skinnies and my favorite brown boots with that blazer and v-neck tee?

What about colorful tunics galore to wear with my skinny jeans or thick pencil jeggings and my boots and long cardigan? I can keep my favorite color (grey) in the key pieces like the cardigan,

as long as I add some color to the top.

The idea here is color and contrast, complimentary contrast.

Bearing in mind that the clothes on those darn mannequins dont exactly fall that way on women with SHAPE such as myself.. I just have to find the right SHAPE of clothing.

Not an easy task I might add, but if you have a great 12 year old shopping buddy like my daughter, it helps to have a second set of eyes and some coffee:)

This is day one folks, work with me here:)
