Clever Find: Great Plate for Great Outdoors Entertaining

Memorial Day is coming up. It’s the official opening of the summer season and the signal to take our socializing outdoors. Picnics, backyard, beach, pool and block parties. It’s all so much more fun outside. That’s where this clever find comes in. Not that it’s reserved solely for the great outdoors by any means, but the Great […]

Earth Day 2016 ~ Simple things you can do to make living on Earth a little better

It’s Earth Day’s 46th year. As I was writing this piece, the image of a somber and depressing Time Magazine cover that I remember from early childhood came to mind. Of all the weekly Time Magazine issues that were delivered to our home year after year, this is the edition that left an indelible impression. I went […]

Clever Find: Flip-It! Cap to get every last drop

It’s the little things in life. The silly little things. Like getting the last bit of super-expensive shampoo or lotion out of the bottle. It’s infuriating to know that perfectly good product should go to waste simply because the packaging that it came in won’t let you get to that last inch. We all have our […]

An app to keep CALM, so that you can, you know, carry on…

I have a slew of clever finds and other succulent though “fluffy” topics and ideas lined up in my editorial calendar waiting to be written and shared.

Grandma Shoes are the Shoe Silhouette of Summer

  In an interesting moment of reversal in ageism, older women are the new hot thing. See CNN’s piece called “Throw Out the Granny Stereoptype” which just proves that grandmas just aren’t the boring old ladies that you thought them to be.

Want Ageless Hair? A Review of Timeless Products by Living Proof

This post was sponsored by Ulta as part of a Blog Blast Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.   It was about 10 years ago when I first realized that hair, like all other parts of the body, ages too. I remember the moment. I was standing in line in some dreadful governmental office […]
