DIY’s I Want To Try

Hi Everyone,

I’ve come across the cutest DIY projects that I want to share with you.  First is from The Glamourai Blog.  I am going to try it this weekend.

I know its very early for XMAS DIY – but not too early to stock up.  I went to my local Home Goods and purchased several Glass Jar’s $7.99 – $18.99.  going to place around the house for little vignette’s and to give as gifts – How cute will that be…..right?
Finally, these cleaver “cake like” invitations…. so great – I’m hosting a ladies lunch at the end of next month and these are gonna be my invites!  Get full directions from The SHE KNOWS Blog
Catch up with you tomorrow – Have a great day!

Moment of Silence

Hi Everyone,

On this day more than others I am so grateful for all I have and the family and friends around me.  I am taking a moment of silence to remember all we lost 12 years ago today.  GOD BLESS AMERICA!

Fall Winter 2013/2014 Fashion Show’s Galore

Hi All,
I’ve had so much fun watching fashion shows online from this past week – next year I’m gonna be there in person!  One really cool video I watched was from Louis Vuitton.  (when you click on the LV link wait a sec.  takes a moment to load the video)  All the models had the same wigs on…. dark short with very sexy lips etc…  I LOVE the coats and the green scoop neck cardigan sweater with silk skirt.  The video features ladies leaving their boudoir or ladies of the evening… very sexy – very glam.
The Elie Saab ready to wear collection for Fall/Winter 2013 is wonderful very approachable clothes – ck out this video

I am also awaiting the new beauty line fromTory Burch – her new candle is so lovely can’t wait to get one for my bedroom!

Now for the dose of reality – “wake up Lori” here are the great shoes I found at my local Marshall’s for $39.00!  They are BCBG Tan/Black T-strap.  Perfect with a pencil skirt as well as my skinny jeans / tank top and tan trench coat! I also found these great drinking glasses at                                                        Silk & Burlap downtown Frederick, MD  1/2 Empty or 1/2 Full – YOU choose!  I pick 1/2 Full

Pink Makes Me Smile


Well Hello There,


What a beautiful day!  I’m on cloud nine….  The weather was more than I could ask for – my son just landed his first job out of college – I walked 4miles – picked basil from my garden for fresh pasta dinner – my family healthy – I’m feeling very blessed!!!!  I wish that for you all!!!!  I hope you enjoy your day, get outside and stop a moment & think what & who you are grateful for!


Be on the watch for some new things – 


Some great local interviews/behind the scenes & new articles focusing on changing hormone’s/anti-aging and how diet supplements may help.  My hit’s and misses


Also, some great new product review’s later and wait til you see the great pair of shoes I snagged at Marshall’s!
