A Pair of Red Booties
I’m so proud of myself – I hardly ever buy shoes, bags, or clothes, but when I do, they are almost always on sale. I wait, like a stealth panther or cheetah for the perfect price – or I just happen to be insanely lucky, which is what happened while on another outing to Target a couple of weeks ago.

Long Hair vs Short Hair From a Male Perspective
One of the fun things of watching the Oscars with a male who isn’t afraid to voice his opinions, is getting what some men truly think of when it comes to women’s looks.

I want to share with you, Readers, the intimate sayings and famous quotations of a quite wonderful, fascinating lady. On history, literature, fashion, and even Queen Elizabeth I… I think you will be pleasantly surprised with the things she has to say about the world… (CONTINUE READING)
