I Get It! Note to Self Moment!

“Smile” 🙂

I had shared this with my friends a few weeks ago and thought I would share it with my readers!

Being a woman is like connecting the dots, repeating everyday!

In trying to do so, we take on so much and never somehow think we have a moment to breathe!

We have so many titles, we’re multi-taskers and then somehow we are still able to take that one phone call at 1 AM – because you care and would want that person to do it for you one day!

The usual, I was running here and running there – simply exhausted!  I looked behind me and found that no one was chasing me! Then, I had to stop and take that breather!  I started back my daily meditation and taking 20 minutes to do it!

I GET IT!  So I am working on it, owning it and making a contribution —–>  ME!   How I’m doing?  Well, I feel great and guess what? You can take time for yourself also!

I am putting this note here  “NOTE TO SELF”  and give a reminder for YOU (guys and gals) to do the same!*

“Me” time is available daily, monthly, even 12 times a year by YOU!!  You can subscribe to yourself and upon receipt…… you can undertake a fulfillment that the order placed; will make you ultimately feel better, be better and look better!

I have repost this, based on Michelle Obama’s dress worn at the Democratic Campaign last night, here is information about the designer, Tracy Reese last year!

Tracy Reese New York®’s runway show will be this Monday, September 13 at 1 PM (Lincoln’s Center’s Studio), during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. To learn more about her, I have attached her bio from Tracy Reese TV. What you find is a beautiful and smart woman who has designed clothes not only for the woman in mind, but making sure her ideas are bright and have a never-ending appeal to the buyer.

Looking at her designs, you can see how she is a lovely chameleon leaving you saying….yes I can put pieces together which show absolutely wonderful! Tracy provides inspiration, beauty and foremost there is so much tenacity in her work.

I am looking forward to seeing her 2011 Spring collection next week (Frock and Plenty). Let’s see; if she has given you some ideas for taking the items in your wardrobe and making them work. More info at http://www.tracyreese.com/. Enjoy the video!

Here is her 2011 Spring Collection below..the show was awesome! The glasses <;;I want them!>;;, the hats, the clothes are so stylish!

Smile with Flowers!

7 Apr

Smile with Flowers

  Flowers make us smile and we look for them at weddings, birthdays, at any celebration and comes highly recommended to give for those “I apologize” days.  Flowers just don’t have to be around for these occasions, you can have flowers in your home all year round!  It’s sometimes hard to remember their names, but we all have our favorites!     

We decorate with flowers! Often people usually place flowers in a vase to dress up a table, more often in the dining room or in the living room; but you can put flowers wherever you like.  They can be in a small-scale or very bold.  April is usually the month when Spring flowers start arriving from overseas (Holland), but May is the time for flowers to start blooming in the U.S..        

You don’t even have to wait until someone sends you flowers.  For those who are in NYC, Manhattan’s century-old flower district occupies little more than a block of West 28th Street, between Avenue of the Americas and Seventh Avenue is a must!  Although the business is wholesale, many of the shops will take walk-ins, the prices are nicely reduced. 😉   

 Or you can even buy flowers at your local supermarket too (usually shipped from local nurseries and the prices are quite affordable).   Perhaps you or your neighbor have a Lilac tree or a Gardenia bush?  You only need a few clippings, imagine putting them in your favorite spot in the house to relax!  Nice, Hugh?  The fragrance will make you smile!     

Flowers can be found in all sort of vivid colors, from bold to quite soft.  One flower which also comes to mind, is the infamous Gerber Daisy, which has inspired many paint companies to mimic their bold colors (for instance Benjamin Moore Paints).  The behind the scene science to make the many hybrids is simply remarkable and well appreciated.      

The Gerber Daisy

I’ve got you thinking?  Why not try taking a single stem of your favorite flower with a small vase and place in it your bathroom, just to have it there will brighten up your morning.  Or put a couple of stems in your kitchen, just to have a “Look Mommy, flowers!”,  while you get the kids ready for school, it will be a great conversation starter.  How about in the bedroom?      

Maybe, you don’t want a vase, just take a small drinking glass, fill with cool water and place just the flower bud!  Or perhaps, wrap a few flower stems in a few wet paper towels and take them to work for your desk. The fragrance will be with you all day!  If anyone asks you what’s the occasion, just say, “Oh, no occasion”. 😉     

 If you are one that can’t have flowers around you, but love them, go to your greeting card store or the card section at your local supermarket, there are many cards with beautiful flowers; pick one and place on your desk instead.  Or you could get a picture,  a postcard… whatever you prefer, but do experience the joy of having flowers around you!  So, what’s your favorite flower?  Did, I convince you to smile with flowers, I sure hope so!  Enjoy!  🙂    

Be well – Letia
