Brilliance Becomes You!

•••
There is nothing wrong with being fabulous! The fashion world is filled with creatively innovative, imaginative people who use style as a form of distinction. Entertainment in general, seems to attract people who rarely shy away from the opportunity to take center stage and shine. But what if the language of style and glamour is a new interest for you? [...]

Fight For It

•••
If you are like me, you were raised to never initiate a fight (that doesn't mean you never found yourself in one). Outside of having a professional boxing career, the notion of fighting is generally seen as a negative thing --and rightly so. Both verbal and physical fighting can cause bodily and emotional damage that take decades from which to heal. So befor[...]

Je Ne Sais Quoi

•••
It's amazing to me how even in 2014 people still have a difficult time with individuals, places, and things they cannot easily compartmentalize or label. But not everything can be so clearly defined: especially magnificent experiences, extraordinary things, and fascinating people. We are all a collage of complex layers, unique experiences, and differentiatin[...]

A Spirit of Thanksgiving

•••
Many of us have heard the saying "attitude determines altitude." More often than not, the limitations we experience in our everyday lives first formulate and take root in our hearts. Productivity begins as a seed that is cultivated through vision, faith, and hard work. It is influenced by those who inspire us, and most importantly, by our own sense of determ[...]

A Season of Evergreen...

•••
I love beautiful things… fashion, art, nature. This time of year, I am often enamored by the elegance of nature; leaves change into vivid colors, seasonal plants render blooms quite different from those we enjoy in spring, and the climate shifts in a more frigid direction, furnishing us with snow-covered landscapes. During winter, most trees become co[...]

Become a Modern Day Icon

•••
We live in a time where, due to social media and reality television, people have a tremendous opportunity to impact countless lives at the mere click of a button. A simple tweet or Youtube video from the most obscure person can go viral and catapult the creator of that content to celebrity status, overnight. But long before the conveniences of technol[...]

Embracing Embellishments

•••
The holidays are coming and that means it's time to sparkle and shine. Far too often we have a negative association with adornments or embellishments (cosmetic or otherwise), but there is absolutely nothing wrong with adding that special something to enhance your overall look. Glam it up. Put on makeup. Add some hair or lash extensions if you want to really [...]

You CAN Have It All!

•••
Daughter, sister, wife, mother, aunt, cousin, best friend, CEO...these are all various titles that I wear simultaneously on any given day. Like a skilled acrobat or magician, I am learning daily how to balance these numerous roles. Some days are better than others, but it's a beautiful challenge to have.  These relationships ultimately bring so much fulf[...]

Handmade

•••
One of the things this lady loves about couture clothing is what it represents: beauty, elegance, unparalleled quality, exclusive materials, exquisite design, and superior handmade craftsmanship. While everything that is showcased on the runway is not a classic, the enduring quality of high fashion speaks for itself when examining items as worthwhile investm[...]

Hang On To The World...

•••
At times, life can get a bit crazy, even when you find yourself on a sure path of success. The demands that greatness requires, challenge us to change, grow, and embrace the unknown, all of which can have us feeling like our world is vigorously turning round and round. As a woman who wears a lot of hats (wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, best frien[...]
