  • Staying cool, looking fabulous

    Today might just be the hottest day of the year here in Rhode Island. I was in such a “mood” because of the heat, it’s like don’t even talk to me, because that is taking too much energy to respond. Luckily I work in an Air Conditioned building, but going from building to building in this weather isn’t fun either. Right now one of my biggest challenges is dressing for this weather at work. For starters, I have a strict dress code working in the prison, but yet it’s summer in Rhode Island and freezing in my office. So how have I dealt? By adding key pieces to my wardrobe.…

With the year coming to a close it’s nice to take a moment and share some new and maybe not so new ideas, reviews, and my favorites of the past year. Today’s topic, the meaning behind my blog name is very interesting considering that I just changed the name not too long ago.

I was traveling a lot and not really focusing on being a lifestyle blog,…

    Anybody who knows me knows that I love to travel.  I also love talking about items that I carry on EVERY single trip.  Fashion and travel can go hand-in-hand so why not make every trip a fashion savvy one?! I have written posts about travel essentials many times; road trips, conferences, cruises; it never gets old. When asked to compile a list of must-have essentials by RelayRides, a fabulous airport car rental service, of course I said yes! But first lets discuss how important RelayRides could be to you on your next trip. RelayRides offers real people a real chance to rent cars from actual people. It’s really great to…
