Longer days, patio dinners, runs along the Charles = bliss. So, what do I think is the best accessory for these busy and fun-filled days?

Why The Backpack of course!

QOTD - Gloria Steinem

Recently I have allowed work and other responsibilities to take a front line places in the priority list. As it frequently happens, in order to keep up with work, home, health and familial obligations we deprive ourselves of the simple treat of dreaming. When everything else requires immediate attention isn't our creativity the first of all sacrifices? But, if super serious Gloria Steinem recognizes the importance and need for dreaming, should not we all too must make time and DREAM BIG? I surely think so!

BeautyTalk - Aging Gracefully

Rachel Weisz is the epitome of an
"Beauty has no expiration date." Our bodies take a beating simply surviving the various situations we deal with daily. Whether you are mom juggling the home and kids' schedules, a corporate crusader or young woman trying to make it, the fact is our days are long and our faces pay the price. We all know drinking water and getting sleep are basic requirements, but, what else can we do to ensure looking & feeling our best without going under the knife?

This sense of owning what God gave me is a constant evolution which has enabled a graceful transition into my 30s. Growing up, far from considered good looking, I settled comfortably in the awkward realm until my 20s, when, like many, I found ways to maximize God's given traits and put my best foot forward, figuratively and literally. At this time I have never used Botox nor fillers (have not ruled it out forever though), and, I firmly (no pun intended) believe the items below are to be given credit for this!
