ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY:

One year ago today, I posted my very first blog. I had no idea what I was taking on, nor really the direction it would take; but it has become a pass time I truly enjoy! Every month I set out to publish a blog which I hope is interesting, insightful, informative, inspirational and fun. I view things differently now, I take inspiration from everywhere and read everything pertaining to fashion and interior design I can get my hands on.

I’d like to give a sincere big “Thank You” to my readers in Russia, France, Ukraine, Germany, United Kingdom, Malaysia, Canada, Australia, Latvia, Africa, United Arab Emirates, Serbia, Brazil, Philippines, Poland, Netherlands, and the United States, almost 2,000 views! If it weren’t for you all, I wouldn’t be here!

HEAT WAVE: 

What I’ll be wearing to keep cool!  
 
Mother Nature certainly fooled us all. It had been such a mild Spring season, and an even milder start to Summer…however, we are now in the midst of a very intense Summer season. I actually donned my swimsuit and headed to the beach last weekend. We have been dealing with heat and humidity, so the idea of too many layers is unthinkable! Want a hassle free way of getting dressed for the day! Slip into one of your cool summer dresses in your closet. Accessorize it, by wearing a different shoe than you usually do, or add some bangles, a statement  necklace, or wrap a light weight cotton gauze scarf loosely around your neck to eventually shield you from the much welcomed air conditioning.
 
 





                                                                        

                                                                                                         

                                                                                                               
                                                                    
 
 
 
SEEN ON THE STREETS OF NEW YORK CITY:
 
By now if you’ve been following my monthly blog, you know that I have a thing for shoes! C’mon which girl doesn’t? 
Any way spotted on the streets of Manhattan are some of the coolest, fresh, unusual, fashionably chic shoes ever.         After all shoes aren’t just for walking are they…no they’re for making a statement!

INTERIOR DESIGN:

Now every Diva needs a “Diva’s Den” right? A place that you can call your own, a sanctuary. Whether it be a place to shut out the world, reflect and just relax, or a place to sit and write your thoughts in your journal, or work on your next blog entry. Here are the important components for that room.
