Cyber Monday Memo

Posted By: Terri
Category: Monday Mantra

Today is not just any Monday… but Cyber Monday. In the past, I would post a list of all the sales going on via the web BUT that seems to be a bit redundant now that EVERYONE is having a sale via the web. Now to keep things really interesting, Cyber Monday doesn’t actually start on Monday but instead, we are jump starting the whole shebang on Sunday-anytime between noon and 6. Isn’t this whole Cyber thing suppose to make holiday shopping more streamlined and efficient. Instead-we RUSH to our computers, or iPads or iPhones (or whatever technology you are using) to scroll endlessly for the best buys and super sales and discounts that we can find.  It got me to thinking, that we are seemingly always in a hurry. A BIG hurry to get our Christmas shopping done…but at what cost?

We opt out of enjoying some major downtime with family and friends to get the deals on Black Friday that usually start on  Thanksgiving Eve. We are taking less time to actually LIVE our  lives and enjoy the company of those we love  in search of  finding something we think we or someone we love…supposedly needs or wants.

What do we REALLY need or more importantly what do we really all want?

My answer (and probably yours too): We need and want more love, more friendship,more compassion, more kindness and more moments to stop and enjoy the life we’ve been given.

I hope this holiday season brings you many moments of joy. True, simple JOY. Take time to do something that costs nothing, call a friend, spend quality time with a family member (young or old that you haven’t connected with for awhile),make a cup of cocoa,or watch a favorite Christmas movie sans your phone screen. Take time to remember what this Christmas season is really about…making memories filled with Love that will last longer than any item you thought you needed  or wanted and bought on sale.

If you happen to be hosting your families Thanksgiving dinner you’re probably already starting to prep. I know  firsthand that attending to all the details to make the day extra special can be a bit stressful but it needn’t be.  I’ve learned that by prepping  everything that you can in advance (setting up bar station, thanksgiving table, and making any desserts,side dishes and appetizers that aren’t time sensitive when it comes to spoilage-can help alleviate  a multitude of last minute details and stress.

Soooo, let’s get started:

Setting up  your drink aka bar area is an easy first step to get things going. Here are a few suggestions as to what your bar areas will need and while I’m at it, I thought it might be a delightful time to share some pretty serving spaces to get you inspired. No matter how large or small your space is for serving drinks  you can add a beautiful bouquet of flowers or pretty autumnal items aka pumpkins, leaves, branches to add  a personal and stylish mood.

Wishing you  a productive and  perfect party prep week ahead.

Turn “Back” Time

Posted By: Terri

So it turns out that you really can: “Turn Back Time” after all.

For those of us living in areas of the country that partake in daylight savings time you need to turn back your clocks by one hour tonight. The good news is that you get an extra hour to sleep in, the “not so good news” shorter hours of actual daylight until we turn them back. Rest up…it’s going to get dark outside a little earlier than you would like.

SOS-Season of Sparkle

Dolce & Gabbana

Halloween is O.V.E.R.   Soooo.you know what that means..it’s officially “The Season Of SPARKLE” aka the holiday season is ON! I am so NOT jumping the gun on this one because quite frankly Christmas Decor has been UP in retail shops for over two months. Which means…. that if we’re crunching the numbers  -I’m wayyyyyy behind- by like 60 days. That being said, I will ease you into the SOS (Season of Sparkle ) slowly.

To get things going why not start with a bit of “embellishment”

Happy Halloween

Posted By: Terri
Category: Humor

Everyone loves Halloween. Did you know that Halloween is the  second most popular holiday only outnumbered by Christmas. THAT is some serious holiday love.

Here in LA, they  close an entire boulevard down smack dab in the middle of West Hollywood and have a parade. Now just between you and I, they may call it a “parade” but reallllly it’s a costume extravaganza to beat all other costume parties on the planet.  I’m not one to partake in this event because quite frankly I am over 30 and don’t care to be stuck in gridlock traffic for 3-4 hours. For those that do partake- I say: “Enjoy and parade away.” It’s Halloween and what a treat to see people so happy about the SECOND most celebrated holiday of the year.

Monochromatic Monday

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

If you want to look pulled together,super chic and maybe  even appear like you’ve lost 5-10 pounds over the weekend it’s as easy (and I do mean EASY) as wearing one color palette from head to toe. Faster than you can brew your morning  cup of espresso-you can pull together a  monochromatic look that  makes you feel marvelous! (And I ask…who doesn’t want that especially- on a Monday?!

Truth be told, I will admit to opting out and wearing basic black head to toe (but that’s wayyy to easy) and lately I’m feeling a need  for a little more color in our lives. The good news… is that you can achieve the same stylish and sleek appearance by mixing different textures in the same color palette.

I’ve shared a few colorful options just to get you inspired. Here’s to having a fabuuulous  Monochromatic Monday.
