Grateful Moments

{Seeing such beauties every step of the way on the streets of New York City just makes my heart smile}

Happy Friday dearies! It's been a short while since I've written my grateful moments' posts, and it's not because I haven't had anything to be grateful for. In fact, my heart has been overflowing with much to be thankful about even more lately, but life has been overwhelmingly busy which has not allowed me the needed time to blog much. I'm happy to even have this small moment today to share several things that have made me happy lately. First, being able to carve out time to write this post means that our new 'urban space in the sky' is pretty much done with only a few minor details remaining to make it completely home and fully pulled together. Second, I couldn't be any more appreciative to be back to an environment where I feel at home. Third, the gift of being alive when a year ago (last month) I didn't think I would be while going through this is a cause for gratefulness.

Whatever your plans are for this weekend, may it be wonderful and safe. Don't forget to begin each day with a grateful heart! Enjoy!

1. I'm not the camping type (although I don't mind the hiking and the roasting of s'mores over a bonfire under a dark starry sky alongside a creek or river chatting up with friends), but if I were into it, this would definitely be sort of my style...ending the night in a cabin with modern amenities.

2. 8 cooking school lessons that will do for now in lieu of Le Cordon Bleu. 

3. Thinning eyebrows are one of the signs of aging and tips on how to deal with it.

4. 6 biggest mistakes you make putting on mascara. I need every little bit of help in that department   on the rare occasions I do put on mascara.

5. Two things: a) did you know that peer pressure influences what you sound like when you sneeze?* b) Why deaf people don't 'achoo' when they sneeze. Very interesting.

Snakeskin With Red Accents

Hi my dear readers! Thank you for visiting and not giving up on stopping by the blog. I know there hasn't been much activity on here lately in the last month or so. Be assured I've not fallen off the face of the earth, nor have I given up on this blog. Since our transition back home to New York, I've been pouring my attention into getting our new urban space together - a process that is both exhaustively challenging and satisfying. Anyone that knows me well will tell you that once I'm involved in a design project whether for a client or for myself, I become so consumed that I'm like a bulldog on a bone. The good news is, I have quite a few exciting projects that I've completed that I can't wait to share with you on here. So check back often for updates as I will slowly but surely upload pictures of some of the progress made.

In the meantime, here's what I wore on a night out with some girlfriends this past Friday. When you're crunched for time the last thing you have energy and time for is a pair of pants that you have to zip up, or fumble with a belt to keep it from falling off your hips showing your derriere (a problem I'm too familiar with as the waist of most pants or jeans are often too big on me while the rest fit my athletic legs fine). This made reaching for these faux snakeskin leggings that night an easy choice for their slip-on elastic waist. To amp up the soft iridescent sheen snakeskin print of the pants, I pulled the subtle red accents of the Eiffel tower' print in the shirt by completing the outfit with red accessories and red lipstick. This added that touch of attitude and brought life to an ensemble that would have otherwise had a major case of the blues.
