Blue Sky Beauty

Love this fashion shoot! So stunning!

New Book: Classy by Derek Blasberg

I came across a blurb about Classy on a blog and there were several quotes from this book that caught my attention:

A lady does not wish to be defined by her purchases.

A lady understands that just because people think she can afford expensive things does not mean they think she deserves them.

A lady, if she desires a designer item, will work hard and pay for the authentic version.

A lady is careful with her words, even the nasty ones. 

A lady doesn't substitute inventions for face-to-face touch and communication.

A lady is never worried about possessing intelligence. Being coquettish or dainty for the sake of being dainty are ideas that smart women know are archaic. 

A lady knows not to answer her phone at a fashion show. Ever.

No matter how often we hear this type of etiquette advice ( re: the Kate Spade Books from a few years ago), I'm still a big fan of these types of books!  My advice: you can never be too classy!!

The risk it took to blossom...

''And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.'' Anais Nin

This quote is so meaningful to me, as it is autobiographical in many ways.  I gave up a 10 year career in business to become a writer and I now feel that I have blossomed into a true artist...

May you find the inner strength to carry out your true life's purpose.

Union Jack Love Affair

I came across a gorgeous Union Jack sofa at ABC Carpet and Home in New York over the Christmas holidays and frankly, I haven't quite gotten over it....And now it seems the British flag is everywhere, from home decor to cosmetics!
