Wishful Thinking | Pretty in Pink

Pretty in Pink

Live life in the eyes of rose colored glasses! Wear head to toe shades of blush for a lush and chic monochromatic feel. When keeping to one hue, play with the textures, shapes and proportions of your outfit. Pair a high waisted culotte with a crop top to show off a little skin. Layer with a sleek coat that ends higher or lower than the culottes. Go mod with black and white colorblock jewelry. Finish the look with a thick soled sneaker or keep it classy with a pointed nude high heel.

Keepin’ Up Appearances

Sunday morning started early with a celebration at Fortune Restaurant with my Boyfriends family. We found that his mother, who was concerned about a lump in her breast, found that it was benign. It had been a nerve wracking week for his family and it was wonderful to see everyone in good spirits. (and on that note – October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month – Learn and Support!) Read More

Wishful Thinking | That 70’s Show

That 70's Show
This morning as I sit on my porch with a warm cup of coffee and giant blanket around me, I breath in the crisp cool air and gaze at the leaves changing before my eyes. It is officially the Fall season. It’s time to switch gears and get out of my fall wardrobe.

But I don’t want to go by myself:/

Ease on Down the Road

With work being a little chaotic and unsettling, My focus on being a positive ray of sunshine emitting inspiration to all the world has diminished to a cool glow, and as I come home, exhausted, drained and just plain pooped, day after day, I just become more tired and uninspired.  But I realize it takes more effort to do nothing about it than it does to be who you really want to be, do what you want to do because, once you are doing just that, you don’t consider it a chore or a hassle – you just are – and you enjoy every minute of it!

It is when I am on my own, in my own head – procrastinating, depressed and wallowing in my own misery is when I feel the most tired and hopeless. But I can’t fix the problem by doing nothing at all!

The hardest part is the first step – realizing that I am what is stopping me from the world and nothing else and accepting that I need to take action.

Here is a moment to take a deep breath, and appreciate the little things about October. Read More

Musical Moments.

Music is my life. Throughout my life, I have been fortunate enough to perform with some of the most fantastic artist at some of the most incredible locations. Throughout my teens, I was a part of the Washington Opera’s Choir. One of my favorite moments during my career was during a performance at the Kennedy Center. The opera was Parsifal which Placido Domingo played. Read More
