Stay Curious!

Try something new. If you don't like it ~ well now you know. Try something else then ~ explore, never say never, cause you never know until you try!

* Eternal Blooms *

I've been fantasizing about a lilac wig forever. I finally tracked down the perfect color in downtown LA yesterday and I couldn't wait to get home and give it a spin!!  Happy Friday my blogger friends! Track down your fantasy this weekend!

☆ we are stardust ~ we are golden ☆

We are all so much alike, however it seems as though our differences are more susceptible to definition than our similarities. We will all face similar personal struggles throughout this lifetime and we all eventually die. It is our attitude that sets us apart. We can chose to gaze upon the stars in all their golden splendor or we can complain that there are too many or they are too bright!

Saving grace

Sir Francis Bacon wrote If a man be gracious and courteous to strangers, it shows he is a citizen of the world, and that his heart is no island cut off from other lands, but a continent that joins to them.” My grandmother embodied this grace that he speaks of, and I have been trying my best to emulate her all of my life!

Josephine, my mother's mother past away over twenty years ago, but she left such a strong imprint on my heart. She was a citizen of the earth in every way and probably my favorite person I have ever known. She was an absolute joy to be around and I think most everyone who knew her felt the same way. I feel so blessed to have had someone in my life  that I can say that about. Thank you Grandma!

Stop and look around!

I have days when I just can't seem to get myself inspired. I'll dwell on something minor, procrastinate on a project or just have a case of the blahs. But it usually just takes a walk out in nature to realize this too shall pass, for life has so much to offer. So the next time you are in a funk - take yourself out on a walk, get some endorphins firing, look around and you'll be reminded how amazing life is!

Swim suit season!

No matter what your size and shape ~ most women have body image issues at some time or other in their lives. And summertime (aka bikini season) has a way of bringing them into focus. If you are not feeling as fit as you like, make a plan to do something about it - so you can quit beating yourself up, and then put on a big smile, because a happy confident person is attractive no matter what size they are!
