I was born in Arizona and moved to Baltimore when I was eight years old. I got my love of fashion and makeup honestly…my Mom was a fashionista before there was a word for it. I remember her rocking a three piece suit in the seventies. She always wore a sleek top knot and often accented her look with a subtle pearl earring. I still have one of those earrings. The Avon lady was a frequent visitor in our home and I remember her giving me tiny lipsticks. They were samples but I thought they were made little just for me! I love getting dressed every day. Whether I’m wearing jeans and a boot or a dress with sneakers I love creating outfits. Then there’s makeup. One of my favorite quotes is “Never underestimate the power of a red lip”.
Although I’m a picky eater I like trying new foods. Right now I’m obsessing over a Thai salad with crispy noodles and a spicy peanut dressing. I could eat it three or four times a week. In 2020 my goal is to cook more at home and to try some new restaurants. Sounds like there are going to be some girl’s nights out in my future! (Ugh…this was written pre Covid-19. I really miss girl’s nights.)
My favorite vacation was to London. I went there alone on a whim. I met some friends of friends and had a fabulous time! They treated me like a princess the whole time I was there. Who told them about my royal lineage? My true love is the beach. It’s my happy place. I love the feeling of the sun on my body and the breeze gently blowing the salt air. Calgon take me away!
So let’s have some fun here. I want to talk about it all…fashion, make up, food and travel and anything else that makes us happy. So come along for the ride. Comment and comment often. And remember to tell your friends to join us. The more the merrier!
