What I love most about Valentine’s Day are all those fabulous sweet treats.  Yes. I admit it.  I’m a complete junky for the sweet stuff.  Heh!

Hope you’re V-Day was just as sweet….

{Soft in Unexpected Places…}

 

With how busy life has been of late, I usually do not give myself a minutes thought but today, as I was running through the Charlotte, NC airport, to catch my next flight, I thought back to earlier this morning and the emotions I was feeling.  I felt completely unsettled.

 In the midst of my morning beauty routine, I stopped and stared at myself in the mirror in a way that I have not done in ages.  As ridiculous as this may sound, it shocked me at how much my body has changed. Not necessarily in a bad way but in a way that tells me that I am getting older. Why didn’t I take notice of this before?  Now mind you, I’m nowhere near the age where I need to start worrying about my own mortality but lately I can’t seem to reconcile the age that I feel I am emotionally with the  age that I know I am biologically.   

As I continued to stare at my reflection, I couldn’t deny that I am softer, yes, and a bit more fragile than I remember.  My skin seems more translucent, less forgiving.  Although I believe I take good care of this temple I call my body, I must say it wouldn’t hurt to treat it with more care.  Pamper it a bit more.  Mistreat it a lot less.  This body is my home and if I plan to live in it for a long while, it’s best that I start thinking of putting this body on a serious maintenance plan.

Be well my darlings!

xoxo

On days like this, nothing else will cure all ills like a hearty, chunky soup.  Its been a terribly insane morning and soup is the only prescription that will quiet my soul.  Mmmmm hmmmm!

Bon appetit!

Happy Monday My Beloved! 

As I commence another week, I must remind myself to stay on course, stay focused and be true to those things that I love and find unique.  Creativity can be fueled  from all that surrounds us.  Now all I have to do is pay attention and stay awake.  Which reminds me…where is that espresso I ordered. 😉

Have an amazing week my angels!

xoxo

{Morning Tea…}

Happy Monday Beloved!  Hope your weekend was delightful. 

As we get started on a new week, take a minute to indulge in your beverage of choice, reflect on all of the good things that are going exceptionally well in your life (I’m confident that you can at least think of one thing), and then go out and share with the world the best parts of you.  Cheers darlings!

xoxo,

Happy Friday my precious darlings!  Have you picked up on the scent of yet another promising weekend?  The weekend is finally upon us and I am feeling completely loopy with glee.  It’s been one of those terribly saturated drama-filled weeks where you just want to exit stage right and keep going without a moments glance back.  I’m definitely ready to drive off into the sunset. 

Wishing you a weekend as amazing as you are… 

Muaaah!

xoxo

This year I’m committed to embracing delightfully vibrant colors and incorporating it into every aspect of my life…in fashion, at work and at home.  I’m done with playing it safe.  Out with classic black and heeeellllloooo rich, deep colors that pop.

Wordless Wednesday…{a quick snapshot of my weekend}

What better way to take in the park…

My iPad, a bit of ‘Vino’ and people watching…what fun.

Life in action…

My day isn’t complete until I’ve had a Pretzel with mustard. Yum…

Look closely and you will see a guy jogging in his SUIT, with a beverage in hand.  God, there is nothing like my beloved NYC!! LOL

Whew! All that people watching created a bit of a thirst.  Starbucks anyone? 🙂

Gourmet chocolates…Dee-lish!!!!

Did I mention that I’m a bit of a foodie…

Ended my day with a glass of chilled vino and my ‘Pad…

Do you feel it? Can you sense it? I smell Spring in the air and for that I am wonderfully thankful.  Hard to believe that we’re already in March. Spring makes me feel giddy, gleeful, and OVER-THE-TOP inspired. I grow my hopes and dreams in a Petri dish all Winter long and give birth to them in the Spring.

 Ahhhh! Glorious Spring.  It’s not too cold, not too hot, but juuuuust right! It’s a whispered hint of a passionate filled Summer to come.  Yes, Spring is definitely my favorite season.

What’s your favorite season?
