If you know a very dapper man who likes to indulge in custom clothes then tell him to make an appointment at The W Hotel for a TRUNK CLUB fitting on April 8th or 9th.  Use my direct link to schedule an appointment.  And while he’s getting fitted, you can check out the cute shops on 2nd street or take in a movie at The Violet Crown Theater – soooo Austin.  You’ll be exhausted from all that shopping, so dash in for a drink and nibble at David Bull’s CONGRESS.  I just love that little area in...

SNAKE “n” SHAKE

Mar 29, 2014 by

I’ve seen some really good looking bangle bracelets made of snake skin.  They’re very popular now and some are quite expensive—like in the thousands.  I wish I would have known that when we found the coral snake in our living room.  That’s right—CORAL S-N-A-K-E inside the house, in the living room, under the buffet!  One morning, Mitch, the dog, started barking.  I found him in the living room barking and looking towards something under the wooden buffet by the front door.  He was very close to it and when I really got a good look, I immediately knew it was a coral snake.  I remembered the important part of the jingle “red and something, something something, red and yellow kill a fellow”.  I’m really not a scaredy cat, but you couldn’t tell it by...

This has promise!  Target, who put the zing in designer clothes at real people prices, has added luxury beauty products to their stores.  I’m talking real luxury goodies that usually have high dollar prices—as in Borghese and Vichy among others.  If you look closely, you’ll recognize the product containers.  For instance, that lipstick case looks a lot like the Chanel lipstick case.  I can’t wait to try them.  Click here to see the high-end products that SheFinds touts.  Let me know if you do—I’d love to get feedback.  By the way, you have added your name to the email list.  Right?  No?  Then look in the upper right hand corner and put your name on the list so you’ll get more insider tips! Here is the direct link to the Target luxury...

CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF COOKIES...

I love the commercial where Robert Earl Keen looks at the camera and says, “Technology-she’s a cruel mistress”.  That’s how I feel about the weather today.  What a cruel mistress.  And what a tease.  I’m looking out the window and even tho Siri says it’s 46 degrees, it’s windy and grey and in my mind—it’s cold and miserable.  Walking into church today, everyone was talking about what a difference a day makes.  Yesterday, we were on the golf course almost complaining about the heat.  Now, I’m looking out the window getting moodier and moodier.  I’m looking over at Mitch, the dog, and even he is looking like he’s bored and down for the count.  Well, since I didn’t have anything else to do (no good movies on), I started googling how weather affects our...

I… TASTE… DEAD… PEOPLE...

That’s me in the dentist chair.  And let me just say, it takes a pretty secure person to share this picture!  I can’t tell you how much time and money I have spent in that chair and the interesting things I’ve learned about teeth.  Now, you’re probably thinking, oh no, she’s getting some of those Hollywood teeth!  Nope.  I am starting the process of getting an implant—not those—the kind above the neck.  I’m having to correct a bad crown from a previous dentist.  For the sake of the article, I am going to share the details.  The original plan was to stick in a titanium post, slap a crown on and out the door I go.  All of which would take several weeks and cost about $4,000.00.  That’s FORE  THOW  SUN  DOLL  URS.  Well,...
