What We Can Learn From a Disney Princess

I remember when I use to only wear costumes as a little girl. My favorite was Snow White, probably because at the time there were no other brunette princesses and I identified with her the most. My sister use to play Sleeping Beauty with me by dressing me up like Aurora and I would pretend to be asleep as she recited the prolog to the Disney film, she even made me a cape to go with my Snow White dress…

Blue Christmas

As much as I love the hustle and bustle of the holidays, it can wear me out. It’s a season full of cheer and jolly, but I can’t help, but feel a bit depressed at times. There’s so much to do and so very little time. I’m a planner, but no matter how much planning I try to do I seem to be running out of time! There’s so much I want to do, so much more to do! I…

Holiday Frenzy

As the holidays quickly approach us and we are driven into a frenzy of shopping, work, colds, and extreme weather conditions, we may loose site of what really matters and what the season really is all about.

I can’t help wondering if we as women and men have lost something, by choosing comfortable and casual. Recently I got engaged. My fiancé loves Mad Men and anything vintage. So as an ode to him we had a Mad Men type engagement party and our engagement photos were also in the realm of that…

Black Friday: Lessons Learned

I begged my fiancé to go to black Friday this year with me. It was going to be the first year that the stores were going to open at MIDNIGHT! That’s 4 more hours of shopping! Plus I gave him the guilt trip of how we were in North Carolina last Thanksgiving and we weren’t able to hit all of my favorite designer stores, so he agreed to join me in this journey. All of Thanksgiving Day I was giddy…

Dress Yourself Into Happiness

Often when we get down and depressed, we put on a pair of sweats and an old t-shirt and lay on the couch in front of the TV. I know I do. I went through a year of ups and downs, mainly downs. I started reading a lot of self-help books, talked to everyone about my problems, got help, and while I started to feel better, it wasn’t until I decided to stop dressing like I was invisible and start…
