As a mom I know that caring for others is natural, and is often
done without any forethought, but it’s taking of ourselves that is
not always as easy. It’s not that we don’t understand why it’s important.
Even flight attendants remind us to put our oxygen masks on before
we take care of others. It’s just that we forget and before we know it
we’re running on empty-again.

In The Essentials of Fabulous the
fascinating book written by Ellen Lubin-
Sherman, I read a quote that got my
attention; “In her charming memoir,
D.V., legendary fashion editor Diana
Vreeland recounts how she was awarded France’s highest honor. “This is how I got the Legion d’Honneur.I asked for it. I was told by someone quite reliable that you only get it if you ask for it, so I asked.”


How often do we ask for what we want? If you are like me not often enough!


Why not start this Mother’s day. All you need to do is ask for what will make you happy.

A little pampering and elegance always works for me. A tray filled with beautiful things that please my eyes and taste buds. The sweet and subtle aroma of flowers in a vintage vase that’s as lovely as the flowers that fill it and the two little words that make it all worth it

MERCI. Works too!

The CHIC Uniform
Is it Possible to be CHIC Wearing the Same Outfit Every Day?

August 01, 2018

Growing up one of our neighbors, a very elegant woman wore the same outfit every day. She had a uniform, though no one thought of it that way. Her look was chic and no one ever questioned her or thought she was weird; on the contrary, she was stunning! I remember looking at her and wondering about her choice, but only with awe.

Is there life after 9 pm in suburbia?

Sunday night is never traffic free and this night wasn't any different. We were driving home from the Jersey shore with friends. Since we had a late lunch we decided to wait until we got home and have dinner at a local restaurant.

Traffic finally started to clear. We needed to confirm that restaurants would still be open after 9 pm. Not a problem . . .
