summer-wallpapers-2010-1024x640

Its definitely cold outside with this heavy hitter of a blizzard this side of the country is experiencing today but lets just take a moment to put this all away and think about what’s coming after this is all gone! You know it….Summer is right around the corner and this blog post will surely put you there front and center. What do most of us do in the summertime – we travel or relax in one way or another. Traveling can be either physical or mental – either way we tend to think of lots of the sun in your face, floating in the pool, sand in your toes, Caribbean breeze while on the beach sipping on a yummy island drink or a cold one! Ughhh, I’m so there right now!

Okay, let me just stop and show you what I mean with the following pics …thank me for it later!

Sunbathing or just snoozing on a yacht is always a great day of relaxing

Oops, can’t forget about the kids…let them go out, run around and explore their surroundings! If you take my advice they will sleep better at night…more quiet time for you!

So there it is…what did you think? Is it hot enough for you? These pictures sure brought me to a warm happy existence and it took my mind off of the mess that we have going on outside…Summer is surely my favorite time of the year. So much to do and see, so many friends to meet with, so many relaxation options to choose from. Whatever you choose to plan for this summer enjoy it, take lots of pics but best of all smile. Enjoy the time that summer has to offer and look forward to it the next year!

Happy Summer!!

BEAUTY AND THE SHOES

Travel, Travel, Travel ….I love to travel – its my tranquil moment of relaxation and serenity, the time to reflect on how blessed I am to be able to do what I do and love my experiences along the way. Its also my time to put my brain on auto pilot and let myself enjoy the sights and sounds around me. Ahhh..I love my life! With that thought in mind, my dearest friend shoe designer John Ashford sent me an invitation to his third trunk show in New York City and I was so excited all week for its arrival. The day finally came and even though the weather was a little cold, the trunk show was the highlight of my day!  Knowing that the event was gonna be featuring shoes and beauty products made my braving the cold all worth it!

For those of you that have never attended one of John Ashford’s events, it is truly amazing. This time there were twice as many shoes as the last trunk show and the people that were in attendance couldn’t decide between one pair of shoes or the other! They were all beautiful and for every pair that the lovely ladies tried on there so many fabulous comments. With the shoe shopping being highly successful – we also had Skin care/beauty products to compliment the whole look. The beautiful model and owner of Sensual Beauty Zephorah Nure, was present to feature her amazing Hawaiian Sensual Collection. Her line features a variety of products with exotics scents of Gardenia and Hibiscus and essential oils to relax you after a stressful day…sounds amazing to me!

I always enjoy attending John Ashford’s events because you can learn a lot from his conversations and you can try on and purchase as many pairs of shoes as many shoes as you want in a cozy, comfortable setting. The people are always so warm and inviting, the conversations are intelligent and at times funny – you literally walk in not knowing anyone and walk out with a few friends added to your list. These events will make you wanna stay for hours and never leave but at the end of the day you can be assured that you’ve met your shoe shopping fetish and little extra!

My trip to New York City is always amazing and when I get invited to his events, I feel like a kid in a candy store! Shoes galore and my undecisiveness on which ones to choose from! On this day, I chose an awesome pair that of Mrs.Pacman wedges – check the rest of the pics of the event below …These events will happen monthly and I can’t wait to attend the next one in April!

THE RED EDITION!

I know Valentines Day is long gone and celebrated but it still merits a post that I know you probably will enjoy. Did you celebrate the day with your loved one? I truly hope you did because I think that this is the most beautiful holiday on the American calendar and it deserves a special place on my blog! Hey, people even get married on this day so why not, right?

Why is this day so anticipated with us Americans? Well, for starters, V-Day  is associated with cupid – you know that cute little guy shooting arrows with his bow, the color red, red roses in a vase with a cute bow, chocolates in cute heart shaped boxes, sexy greeting cards with spicy quotes and pure anticipated steamy love! Boy that was a lot of saucy thinking on my part LOL. Cheesy for some, delicious for others…your choice.

Let’s see what it is about this holiday that makes it so awesome ….shall we?
