Gypsy by the water

Leather woven links, beads, wood, and Czech glass, are not only ingredients for my love of gypsy aesthetics, but also the facets of one of my favorite new collections. Thanks to Joanna over at BrooklynThread, I donned these bohemian wraps with virtually everything while in Miami this summer... thus making my jewelry box playground left at home exceptionally jealous.

About the company: "BrooklynThread, an independent jewelry collection, is a collision of bohemian chic and urban style, achieved by combining metal, glass and stone with leather, linen and thread. Each piece is hand-crafted in Brooklyn, New York, and integrates the use of natural fibers, vintage, and repurposed materials."

When life gives you lemons... add Patron

Yesterday's climax was hell-bent in every conceivable way, but even as I framed the scope of persuasive language, I'm grateful for silver-linings and unfathomably small miracles. During the course of this picture-taking calamity, I (in retrospect) remorsefully set my clutch on top of the truck and then proceeded to drive off only to remember this ill-constructed act an hour later. So there I am, set deep in the valley of the shadows of horror while driving back to the scene of the crime... where of course, the clutch had turned Houdini and magically disappeared.

But the long and short of it is that when I finally got home, a welcomed voice on the answering machine said they had my belongings safe and sound... minus the cash that had been removed during its prior abduction. So thank you Jessica for finding it, driving 60 miles out of your way so that I could retrieve it, and for saving me unwarranted amounts of angst. And in a sigh of reprieve and raw contentment, I've come …

Historic Home Flood GoFundMe

Any donation you can make is appreciated. If you are unable to donate, you can still help by sharing this story with your friends and family. Thank you so very much.
Less than a year ago, I became a homeowner of a beautiful, old Victorian built in 1870. A dream come true but recently a nightmare. This was a milestone in my life... and yet now something I'm asking anyone that can, to please help save it from repeated flooding and water damage. Unaware this was a past issue, I'm faced with devastating restoration costs in order to maintain the preservation and integrity of my home's internal and external structure. 
This past week, we received significant amounts of rainfall and the NWS issued flash flooding in this area. Because of untreated damage over the years before I lived here, rainfall continues to pour down/through parts of the roof and pipes as ground water surges in, flooding the inside of my home with 18-24 inches of water.
Winter temperatures are still in the mi…

Youth Express Eye Serum & Youth Express Eye Gel

Around here, the weather changes with the blink of an eye... and this time of year, as the cold rushes in and the sun disappears, the constant overcast makes me feel like I'm sleepwalking. Everything reminds me of naptime and before long, the sleeping beauty curse doesn't sound too bad. When given the opportunity to work with InstaNatural, a leading global distributor of nature inspired beauty and cosmetics products, I was thrilled to say, "Bye-bye tired eyes." 
 Using Youth Express Eye Serum in conjunction with Youth Express Eye Gel, my results have been great! The highly concentrated blend of ingredients designed to restore a youthful glow to the eye area decreases the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, dark circles and puffiness. Even though I just started using them, I can already see the difference. Having tried a handful of different creams, gels, and serums in the past, I was so pleased to find one that does exactly what it says it will do. Plus, it smells won…
