Clowning and Life

This year I told myself I was going to take more action and do things that scare me or make me want to hide. One of these things is to take a clown class. Back in NYC when I first took the class, I use to dread it. I would love watching everyone else participating, but I hated it when it was my turn. I could never just let go, release and just have fun. It was a very dark…

Purses are to Women as Balls are to Men

“I’m thinking balls are to men what purses are to women. It’s just a little bag, but we feel naked in public without it.” (Carrie from Sex in the City) Like last week’s blog talking about what shoes say about a man (Dating and Shoes), I think handbags are to women as shoes are to men. I believe you can tell a lot about a woman by her handbag. To us, handbags are an everyday essential, even the non-handbag lady…

Dating and Shoes

“Momma always says there’s an awful lot you could tell about a person by their shoes. Where they’re going. Where they’ve been.” – Forest Gump That Forest was a real smart man. I like to live my life a little by this quote. There’s a lot of truth to it. You might say that I’m judging a book by its cover, but honestly, most of us do So why not put our best “shoe” forward? You really can tell a…

The Many Phases of My Style and Life

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about the friendships that I’ve had in my life.  It seems that there is a correlation between my wardrobe and my friendships. Much of my wardrobe and style choices seem to come from whom my friends are at the time, and what stage of life I am in. For example, when I was in middle school, my surfer girl wardrobe phase emerged as a result of my need to fit in with my surroundings…

Hey Guys! So based on my last blog about finding my wedding dress, I asked my sister, Diane to write a guest blog about some tips for going about the very important task, So here she is: I love weddings…everything about them.  I don’t know what it is about bridal stuff that gets me all excited and puts a glimmer in my eye, but the first time I saw the movie, The Wedding Planner, I wanted to be just like…

Journey for a White Dress

Two weekends ago, I tried on my wedding dress for the second time. When the seamstress called me to let me know that my dress was ready for my first fitting after alterations, I became incredibly nervous. For some reason, I had forgotten about the dress. This is probably because I was scared and had buried it in the back of my mind.  Let me start from the beginning of the hunt for my wedding dress. After I became engaged,…

Bride’s Maid Dresses. To Be, or Not To Be.

I know most brides say this, but I really do want my bride’s maids to wear their dresses again. I know It’s like almost impossible to pick a dress that everyone will like and look good in. I’ve been a bride’s maid 4 times now and I’ve never worn the dress again.  Thank God the brides had good taste and I looked good in the dresses they choose, but I still never wore the dress again. I am determined to…

Lesson Learned: I’m not Super Woman

            I may have been pushing myself too hard. As I write this, I’m still sniffling and feeling under the weather. Last week I started off strong. I was working out 2-3 times a day, eating extremely clean (looking back I might have not had enough calories for the amount of exercise I was doing), I was getting stuff done and even writing 2 blogs in one week, double my goal. Well I’m paying for it…
