This is an all purpose goodie. I use it for dry skin emergencies, cuticle conditioning, lip gloss, you name it. It's better than vaseline because it has a hint of rose as an extra bonus. I never leave home without it.
I've always loved Barbie dolls, so many fun memories and scenarios conjured up in my vivid imagination as a little girl. The clothes, the houses, the cars (even when she was nestled in a shoebox riding with Midge, and Ken being pushed around by by me). Reminds me of my daughter as well, she and her friends really went all out with Barbie themes; what fond memories all around. Mattel has launched a limited edition set of "Barbie" for the hit television show Mad Men, great clothes. "Mad Men Barbie", how fierce.

One of my favorite places to travel to is Japan. I appreciate the culture and most everything about it. I can spend hours just people watching because the fashion is so eclectic. Most of all Japanese street fashion is always about individual flair, which is what having 'style' is all about. The kids don't dress to 'trend', it seems they really dress as a means of personal expression.

I love oversized sunglasses and have been collecting them for years. Even as a child, I always thought large frames looked so glamourous. Wherever my travels take me, I'm on the lookout for standout shades. Whether they be great vintage finds, street vendor knock-offs, or really expensive designer eyewear, I have to have a pair of great sunglasses as a part of my daily style vibe. These Oliver Peoples "Chelsea" black sunglasses are my absolute favorites. I never leave home without them.
"Knowing it's not always about 'you', but being there for someone else. Lend a hand, give a smile to a stranger, or just listen and let someone else close to you be 'heard'. It's not always the big gestures, not forgetting the little things. That is bliss." - Jody Watley
Legendary, influential, gifted, sexy, there are so many adjectives that come to mind when I think of Prince. I've had the good fortune to meet him and spend a bit of time in his presence and I can tell you the man is as mesmerizing offstage as he is on it.
Truly, he is one of my favorite artists of all time and such an inspiration.
Happy Birthday Prince. Thank you for your gift of music.
