The Most Pretentious Video About Macarons

Hey guys, since I’m trying to be more open with my audience, and since I blog about all things lifestyle related, and since I didn’t get a chance to post the actual blog post that I wanted because the photos were not up to par, I thought I would share one of my older videos with you. I chose this video because although it is over year old, a commenter named Woodshadow left the comment below just last week. Well, I guess he/she/they told me. It occurred to me that my readers should also be able to watch the most…

Weekend Reflections (With Video)

It’s Monday morning and a bird woke me up damn it!! Let me repeat that with a twist. It’s Monday morning, Feb 20th, a federal holiday and a freakin chirping bird woke me up at 8am. Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad to be alive, thankful to God for another day, but I abhor birds and they are here early, along with the pollen and my seasonal allergies and the promise of a really hot, sweltering Summer. People were eating outside yesterday. It’s the middle of Winter on the East Coast and it is hot. Where is the snow? Where…

Monday Confessions: The Vlog That Almost Wasn’t (Video)

So finally I posted the vlog today that I was supposed to post last Sunday. Last Sunday because the plan is to post on the channel at least once a week and Sunday was the designated day.

The plan was to tweak the vlog on last Friday, put the finishing touches on it Saturday evening (after the…

Monday Confessions: Garance and Me

Heading to see Hidden figures, an early morning show because the hubby and I are really young senior citizens, I decided to read a few pages in a new book I picked up before Christmas. I picked up the Garance Dore book to read on the way, because I am on a perpetual search for: Glamour Organization Simplicity                                                                                    …

Happy All Year

So I have decided that I am no longer saying Happy New Year, because when the newness wears off, it doesn’t seem to be happy anymore. At least that is how both 2015 and 2016 were for me. Not being one to practice the definition of insanity, I have decided to do things different this year. So I have decided that I will be happy all year and every year here on out. I am choosing happiness. Of course nobody is happy 100% of the time, but I think its safe to shoot for at least 90%. So on to…
