Sure, appetizers and great music make a summer party memorable, but there’s something about festive outdoor lighting that turns the let’s-linger factor up several notches. Let’s face it, a porch lamp or deck floodlight works, but it doesn’t do much in the “wow, this is going to be an exciting shindig” department.
Look up! The Perseid meteor shower is happening (peaks August 11-12) and I couldn’t be more excited. There’s something magical about catching a glimpse of shooting stars. Confession: I still make a wish when I see one. For the Perseids shower, there might be up to 70 an hour. Hmmm. That’s a lot of wishes. But I digress. For celestial seekers like […]
These days, I’m all about stylish eyeglass cases. Let’s just say I recently had enough of my contact lenses (they’d keep falling on the floor as I put them in or worse, fold over while in my eye). So, I decided to enter the world of eyeglasses. However, like most people with a new purchase, I’ve become very cautious […]
So eBay recently announced its new 3D printing app, eBay Exact, where we can customize jewelry (among other things). Jewelry from a printer? How neat is that? To think this is no hologram-ish or sci-fi thing – it’s totally wearable jewelry made with the help of some concepts, spiffy software and a 3D printer.
Let’s face it, we’re busy ladies. Wristlets to the rescue! Especially in the summer, when we’re carrying lounge chairs to the beach, heading to our BFFs wedding and grocery shopping for picnics, we want to keep life organized – and still look cute doing it.
How exciting! The royal baby news has us glued to the TV and internet. First off: congrats Kate Middleton and Prince William. Now, let’s get to it: we’re lovin’ that Kate stepped out for the first time as a family in an adorable polka dot dress. Doting in dots, you could say. Not only was […]
I think there’s nothing prettier than walking in a room and seeing a vase of flowers. Of course decorative pillows and a nice painting also do the trick, but something about flowers really livens up a room and makes me smile. Whether it’s a single rose on a table or a massive living room bouquet, they bring an extra dose of cheer […]
Confession time: I’m not neat when it comes to packing jewelry for a getaway. OK, I’m downright careless. While my sandals rest carefully between perfectly folded shorts, my jewelry is another story. I toss ’em in a plastic sandwich bag, then smush it in my suitcase.
Summer‘s in full swing, which means many of us are in body-baring mode. Even if we’re not into showing our midriffs at the beach, there’s nothing wrong with some lunges and power walks here and there. The problem? Getting fit in style.
July 4th is right around the corner and like most things full of fun and freedom, we can’t wait to celebrate. That means not only digging into Aunt Carolyn’s potato salad, but showing those stars and stripes some love.
