Self Care Sunday’s

Posted By: Terri

Self Care Sunday’s has suddenly become a “thing” and I would like to thank the genius who originally coined the term and got the whole ball rolling on this concept.

Way back when (if anyone can remember) Sunday was deemed as a day of rest-dating back to a biblical reference. Yet somehow, that mantra has gone by the way side and we have become obsessed with using Sunday as a catch up day to complete everything we didn’t quite get to during the week. (If this resonates with you -raise a hand. Present company is included..so don’t for a minute feel guilty.

For the good of our mental health and in a collective quest to enjoy this wonderful life we’ve been given here are a few suggestions to try on your “Self care Sundays”

Let’s start with the number one rule for unplugging: Limit time on all social media to a bare minimum.

Choose from any on of the following to aid in relaxing:

Take a walk (outside) 

Take a bubble bath. 

Listen to some beautiful meditation music.

Read a book (remember books).

Book a mani pedi or give yourself one.

Get a massage/a facial or heck why not check into a spa for the entire day.

Deviate from your diet and enjoy something really decadent. Savor every bite.

I hope you’ll take time to take care of YOU. Have a beautiful relaxing Sunday.

Bring on the Bling

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion tips

Happy Friday, Glamour Girl. There’s been something on my mind lately and it is style related hence- I feel compelled to share it with you. Am I alone on this one or do you agree that we all need a little bit of bling in your day? Lately, I’ve noticed a major gravitational pull toward the perusing of sparkly items. Glitter is always on my radar but as of this week it seems stronger than ever. I can’t quite explain it and yet I sit here pondering the following: could this unceasing penchant for sparkle be caused by: 1) the holidays being O.V.E.R. and longing for something festive 2.) the dark days of Winter with gloomy days abounding are starting to wear on us and we need a bit of sun SHINE in our day or 3.) we just like something sparkly and pretty? How about: All of the above! In keeping with my quest of putting a little bit of bling back in your day and not suggesting you go over the top and look like you’re ready to wear so much glitter that you could bring in an oncoming plane, might I recommend a major “on- trend” item that is spotted everywhere as of late..the rhinestone belt. Now this is NOT the rhinestone cowboy belt of days gone bye but instead a really chic and sleek belt that you can wear with, skirts, pants, everyday dresses and jeans. Yes, you heard me JEANS. In fact,jeans are my number one preference in putting a little bling back into your wardrobe rotation.

Tuesday’s (baking) Tip

Posted By: Terri

Happy Luna New Year / AKA Chinese New Year. It’s the year of the Pig, which translates into a time of prosperity and good fortune. All I can say to that is Bring it!

As we embark on the New Year (Luna style), it seems like the perfect time to reboot if you haven’t exactly stuck to your New Year’s resolutions. If per chance you’re determined to eating healthier and need a slight nudge here’s a simple and healthy not to mention easy peasy recipe to keep you on point.

Filled with healthy ingredients, one of them being flax seed (which p.s. I highly recommend flax meal-less gritty and a smoother consistency) I think you will delight in the deliciousness of these yummy muffins.

Orange Bran Flax Muffins

Mix together:

  • Orange Bran Flax Muffins

In a large bowl combine:

1 cup oat bran

1 c wheat flour

1 c wheat bran

1 Tbsp baking powder

½ tsp salt

In a blender combine:

2 oranges quartered and seeded and skin removed

1 cup brown sugar  * (I use 2% low fat Buttermilk)

1 c buttermilk

½ c Canola oil

2 eggs

1 tsp baking soda

*1 cup dried cranberry

Preheat over 375 degree

Line two 12-cup muffin pans with paper liners or coat pans with nonstick spray.

In a large bowl combine dry ingredients. Set Aside. In a blender combine oranges, brown sugar, buttermilk, canola oil eggs and baking soda. Pour orange mixture into the dry ingredients. Mix well until blended. Stir in dried cranberries.

Divide batter evenly among the muffin cups. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the pans for 5 minutes before removing to a cooking rack.

Makes 24

Paging….Diana Frey

Paging… Diana Frey. Diana are you there?

Hello Glamour Girls. If you visit this blog on any sort of continuous basis you know I have a major penchant for sharing some pretty things especially when they have a bit of bling. I mean, what would life be without a little (or a lot of SPARKLE). Answer…not nearly as pretty! And Glamour Girl we are ALL about THE PRETTY!

Recently, I shared on my personal Facebook page a photo featuring the most beautiful heart frame boxes designed by mixed media jewelry artist extraordinaire- Diana Frey. Try as I may to “pin” her down to purchase said item(s) listed on Flickr and advertised on Pinterest,, I came to a total standstill. Not to be detoured from my intention to find Ms. Frey, I sourced her via Flickr (where I emailed her to get info) her Etsy shop (which has been down as she is taking “a short break”) and her Facebook page which I cannot seem to locate with numerous listing for Diana Frey, NONE of which seem to be the wonderful artist in demand. In an effort to not be reported as an internet crazy person/stalker …I will wait the recommended 3 day grace period and reach out again via Etsy which still lists an email address. Fingers crossed that maybe just maybe we will make contact.

In the meantime,I’ve posted a sampling of her designs. One look and I think you’ll agree her designs are beautiful and oh so sparkly. If you’re out there Diana Frey we must find you and your jewelry.

Paging…Diana Frey.
