Stick with me, kid……

 Once again, I’m ahead of the curve.  Remember my article  about Marfa, Texas that I posted on January 16?  Well, The Real Real has jumped on the band wagon and committed a fashion homage to Marfa.  Ahhhh, it gets so old….I’m just sayin’.  By the way, if you’ve never checked out The Real Real, it is a muy upscale on-line consignment  boutique that is worth your time.  I enjoy just browsing and discovering brands that I never would know existed.  Kinda of a haute couture field trip. BTW, if you didn’t read my Marfa snippet, backtrack and indulge...

Cold?  Hay fever?  Allergies?  You say po-tay-toe, I say po-tah-toe!  It’s all the same when you are sneezing your freckles off and you feel as if someone put the end of a bicycle pump inside your head and is pumping as fast as they can (I must say that is a pretty darn good description).  Ilana Saul, in Lauren Conrad, has some common sense things to do when you have cold symptoms.  Just don’t wait around to go to the doctor if you take a turn for the worse.  Flu and bronchial infections are rampant.  FYI—you are 3 times more prone to catch a cold if you don’t get a good night’s sleep.  Here are great tips to get the magic 8 hours from Allison Norton.  Oh, be sure and check out the super...

Back in November, I posted an article about early morning.  Well, same song-different verse.  I have added something new to my top of the morning routine.  Before I even get out of bed, I do some twist and stretches while taking deep breaths.  When I sit up on the side of the bed, I roll my shoulders, neck and ankles.  I find when I do this, I don’t sound like a box of Rice Krispies when I stumble to the kitchen for coffee.  In a new blog I found, Elephant Journal, Nicole Carlin has some tips on how to feel good in the morning.  Good stuff.  And now what do you do?  Try meditating.  Shannon Farrell, Daily Makeover, has a beginners guide to start something that can change your life.  Click here to take...

CRAY CRAY…

There’s some crazy stuff out there.  Since starting this blog, I’ve seen a lot of it-some I couldn’t/wouldn’t share.  I had no idea what a bubble I lived in (not really, I do).  But every once in a while, I run across something jaw dropping that is totally beyond description.  This shoe brand, Irregular Choice, is one of those crazy discoveries.  Their web page is pretty entertaining, but the shoes on sale at Zulily are—well, you just have to see them.  Who knows-they just might be the perfect pair of shoes to compliment that new outfit.  My tongue is soooo poking my...
