Diane Von Furstenberg Maxi Dresses ~ LOVE!!!

DVF Desert Leaf Dress DVF Abigail Maxi Wrap ~My FAVORITE!! I DIE!! DVF Elailia Dress
I've always been a HUGE fan of DVF!! Her wrap dresses are Unique, Sexy and Gorgeous classics with BOLD patterns and billowing fabrics that make any figure look chic and stylish! And as we have ups and downs in our dress sizes, wrap dresses are forgiving as an added bonus! In my dreams, I'd have a closet full! And now DVF has come out with a slew of Maxi Dresses!! Maxi dresses are long dresses, almost to the floor, that have a sort of boho-chic style. I dress them up with heels and dress them down with flats. I LOVE them!! I especially love flowy Maxi dresses during the warmer months because nothing is really touching's like a big swoosh of air that flows around you all day~~loverly! And no, you don’t have to be tall to rock a long Maxi dress! I'd say that at least one of her Maxi dresses is an essential piece of every summer wardrobe. So save up your pennies if you need to....but go get yourself one of these gorgeous dresses for summer!! You deserve it! :)

United Breaks Guitars

You've got to just *LOVE* this guy!! Sometimes there comes along something that is just so perfect & so creative, that you've got to share it. This was sent to me in an email and I wanted to share it with you, just to make you smile. :) Musician, Dave Carroll, recently had difficulty with United Airlines when they damaged his treasured guitar. Dave spent 9 months trying to get United to pay for damages with no luck. So he posted a funny, yet very effective, retaliatory video on YouTube. The video has since received over 10 million hits!! Taylor Guitar sent him 2 new custom guitars in appreciation for product recognition in the video. So the moral of the story is: When you are frustrated and feeling defeated, don't get mad, don't let it ruin your day, don't go to a bad place and curse and get kookie~~~just get creative! :)

Sipping Iced Coffee While Admiring My Roses!

When I was a young girl I moved to Japan for a short while to model. While I was there I got a little addicted to something that is on EVERY STREET CORNER in Tokyo and Osaka and Kyoto but not here in the US. They have vending machines with DELICIOUS Ice Coffee!! It's inexpensive, quick, and super yummy & refreshing. During the hot summer months I turn more to iced coffees for my caffeine fix! My little secret is to add Pumpkin Pie Spice, Fat Free Half & Half, and as a sweetener, I use XyloSweet. (You can order it online or buy it at Wholefoods.) It's the best form of Stevia out there~~NO after taste that you usually get from Stevia. (Stevia is a natural no calorie sweetener) So there you have it!! Go make one!
It pays to have a good tutor people!! A few nights ago my doorbell rang~~my daughter said, "MOM!! Somebody's at the dooooo~ooorr!!!" As I turned the corner to see who was at the door I almost fell flat out as I got sight of the MOST AMAZING ROSES I've ever received!!! My daughter suffered a spinal fracture in basketball last year and missed a lot of school. To help her catch up and get her grades back up to par, I hired a tutor to help her. This tutor company sent me this HUGE bouquet of roses!! (Derek Moore's Tutor Kids) The biggest roses I've ever seen in my life....seriously, these photos can't do them justice. My Dad tells me I should buy some stuff to propagate them and see if I can get them to grow in my yard!! I'm going to go to Loew's and ask the rose fella how to do that! I'll let you know how it goes!
Thank you, Tutor Kids!!
