Being on vacation doesn’t always mean you have to change your daily routine. My girls and I made sure we took some time at the local yacht club to stretch on the dock. It was so peaceful and relaxing, right up until the stealth bomber broke the sound barrier right over us. Lessons from today; find your center, make time for yourself, love your friends, and embrace the moment.

My ensemble for today was inspired by my bestie from NY, Chantal. These are her fire red shorts. So, I’m wearing my trusty cheetah wedges, grey razor back shirt, brown belt and chunky mahogany ring. I also had my BCBG glasses and glitter nails. Glitter is definitely my favorite color. Hurray for girls weekend!!! More updates to come.

With Opposite Action

Advice July 8, 2012

I’ve been under considerable stress and needed a change of scenery. So a dear friend, the fabulous Sasha, made sure I had a relaxing day at the beach. This fun girl’s outing mirrors a simple psychological technique for behavioral activation, “with opposite action”. Basically, when you are feeling low and down don’t allow that mood state to take over do something that will bring your spirits up. It works every time. So next time you are feeling down or stressed do something with the opposite intention and note how your mood changes.

Big Love!!!!

Lifestyle July 3, 2012

Well, I haven’t posted in a while mainly because I was recovering from the wedding of a lifetime.  My dearest friend Kim married the truly debonaire Blain…even his name is swanky.  I don’t need to give you guys a play by play but would love to show you some of my favorite captures from the day.  Yes, some of them are out of focus thanx to my quick iPhone focus.

The wedding party was huge which made for very fun pre and post wedding events.  I know not everyone has this many friends but it really made the weekend a party.  Also, on a side note, this flower girl (cousin of the Bride) was adorable all day.  She was quite a ham!

Finally, we partied until we could party no more.  The top is the flower girl with a groom’s man, then the Bride and her brother (Stevie), some delish cupcakes, a dance with the Bride her long time friend (Tristen) and the flower girl again…I told you she was a ham.  Then here is the exhausted Groom.  How much do you love those socks, all the groom’s men had some variation.
