So, the more I watch The Crown, the more I realize I was wrong about HRH…

So, I am of the generation of Lady Di, Princess Diana, Princess of Wales. I was a little girl in pigtails on the way to Camp Tomachichi and I was so sad because I could not stay home and watch the whole wedding. I was smitten from the very beginning. Her style, her grace, her…

So, don’t you hate it when you are smarter than who you work for? (let’s change that!)

So, I am a smart lady. Not Einstein level, but I have a pretty good balance of book and street smarts. I don't have to drone on about how many degrees I have because education doesn't = intelligence. I know people with no formal education who are very successful. They either have mega experience, or…

So, packing with a purpose for travel…

So, you have heard it before, I am going to Paris soon! Yay me! Part of any trip or any change requires effort. And this fabulous fantasy holiday involves me preparing for my trip way ahead of time. Who am I fooling? All of my trips involve me getting ready way before anyone else. But…

So, when your mom gets ill, you realize how wack taking her (or anyone) for granted is…

So, I am a good daughter. Really, I am. But I am impatient with my mom. We have that 30 year difference, and she is just not like me at all. I am high energy and I don't sleep a lot and I care about being healthy and I am the opposite of sedentary. She…

So Ernest Hemingway, you rock- But why you treat me so bad???

So, I finally finished A Farewell to Arms by this literary genius called Hemingway. You may have heard his name a time or 2000. I personally love, love, love his writing style. It is plain-spoken and conversational and kind of odd, at least in this novel. Don't know much about it? It is set in…

So, these are some things to make a vacation easier and more pleasurable, at least for me!

So, I really like to be prepared when I go somewhere. Be it a walk down to the neighborhood pool, a day trip to the mountains, or going across the pond to Paris:). I like to have things to provide entertainment, keep me on a good track with my health, help keep a record of…

So, you can be chic in Paris on the cheap or anywhere you travel…trust me

So, besides the fact that I woke up today and my loved ones are well, I have tons to celebrate because we are at 25 days until we head off to Paris! I have already started gathering up my clothes, mostly dresses (I wear dresses almost everyday) and super cute wraps and little short scarves…

So, I have gotten really good at faking it (not what you may be thinking)

So, I am not talking about in terms of romantic escapades or pretending to be something that I am not. I am talking about removing my feelings about a person/situation and just following their lead. I used to be so wrapped up in people not treating me well, or keeping in touch properly or just…

So, you don’t have to have a niche to write happy…

So, I have decided that I am going to write happy. For me that means I am going to write what I want, despite the likes or comments or accolades. I know that if I write about something to do with clean eating or fitness, that I will get many hits because it is a…

So, apparently if you are too kind, people are not, ways to get past the pattern…

So, despite what some may say about my outspoken and opinionated self, I am kind. Honestly, much too kind to people who clearly don't deserve it. Yet, I keep pushing forward being nice to others and people keep taking advantage, or try to. My guy is always like, "Push back, put people in their place,…
