I Have My Mother's Hands

I was so exited when my Mother brought this with her when she came to visit recently. This was one of her first drawings when she was in school for Interior Design. I was very exited to have such a wonderful and large piece of artwork in my apartment that is so personal and original. My Mother is an amazing artist, and anyone who knows art knows that drawing hands is one of the hardest things to do. But one thing that makes this piece so tremendous for me is that I have my Mother's hands! 
(I will be painting the matting black to match the charcoal.)

Unique Edges and Memories

When I was about 11 years old my Buddhist Priest saw my piercings and told me that these holes in your body allow your energy to drain out like waterfalls. He shook his little finger at me and told me, "No more holes" smiled and walked away to leave me with these thoughts. While I always contemplated information that he gave to me, I always filtered through what it was that I would accept as right for me and what I felt was better left for others. Maybe it was vanity that made me reject this information from my priest, probably so, as I have always loved piercings. In fact, I pierced my ear in this exact same spot in London in 2002. I dont have an earring in that spot now, but the scar leaves me to remember two things that make me smile; London and the politely rejected advice from my gentle advisor. To me, this is what piercings are all about. They should remind you of a moment in time, of someone special, a triumph, or of a place near and dear to your heart. And my little hole reminds me of a city I adore and a little sweet man shaking his finger at me in love.

My Jeggings

So this is my first pair of Jeggings and I have to admit that I am definitely behind the fashion curve on this one! I always thought it was so terribly taboo to wear leggings without completely covering your hind end with a long shirt. This was until I came across my jeggings! Now I realize what all the fuss is all about. They are comfortable, they are thicker than the traditional leggings which makes it okay to show a little hip and booty. I have to admit that I still make sure that I cover my hind end with a long shirt, but this is mostly just from self consciousness alone. 
And so the moral of the story not be afraid to at least try the new might find yourself pleasantly surprised! 
I have to say that next time I would not wear the grey leather jacket, but the rest of the ensemble I love!

Handsome Vintage

My gusband Eric bought these shoes! They seem to go with everything so effortlessly and yet he looks so pulled together at the same time. Take notes boys and girls, a little vintage flair can go a long way!

Time to Shine.

It is photo's like these that inspire me to sit up a little more strait, to make sure I am polished and to take those little details to the next level, just as I am rushing out the door for yet another day in the life... But today is your day, take it, own it, and make it yours my Fashionistas! Time to Shine Darlings!
