Monday. Many people say it’s their least favorite day of the week. So, how can we make this day a bit more pleasurable and palatable?Here are three tried and true (and did I mention simple things you can do to ease into your work week). Wishing you a wonderful, productive and pleasurable week ahead.

1. Add a POP to color to lift your mood and your outfit goals.

It can be something as simple as putting on a pair of pumps in a vivid hue that will put a little “Spring in your step”-which P.S. which aids greatly aids in getting through the Winter slump).

2. Start your day with a 15 to 20 minute meditation and sprinkle in some affirmations throughout the day.

3. Embrace Meatless Monday.

Hat-tas-tic

Today is National Hat Day!

Hat by Balenciaga circa 1954 Photographed by Henry Clark

Hats in their heyday (circa 1950’s & 60’s),were a MAJOR fashion accessory that completed a women’s look and were selected with the greatest of care…

Unlike, hats of today that are tossed atop your head without much thought (and in many cases chosen to cover up a bad hair day or shield one from the harsh elements-(rain, snow, sleet or bright sunlight),the hats of years gone by were statement pieces that were full on glamour .

Oh, I wish that the hats of yesterday would come back. It would give us all a chance to upgrade our look and really make hats..hat-tas-tic once again.

Happy National Hat Day! Here’s to bringing back the hat …in all it’s glamorous glory!.

Coat-a-holic (continued)

Posted By: Terri

I live in Los Angeles and am a self complained “Coat-a-holic” ( a term I have deemed upon myself since I have two jam packed closets of winter coats…. yet living in California I may have an opportunity to wear these items for a whooping 2 months out of the year ). This however does not seem to detour me from scanning numerous coat sales at the beginning of January and perusing at warp speed a bevy of coats that will not break the bank should they find their way into my closet. Everyone seems to be having a sale on coats which is right up the retail alley. As retailers start making space for their Spring /Summer and Resort collections they’re clearing out cold weather apparel- because this is retail and everyone wants a swim suit in January. Right?
Any who-back to the coat sale-as I was zipping through my emails I came across one wonderful sale courtesy of Zara. Most of their coats are sale priced at (wait for it) $119.00 and the faux fur is a mere $69.99. All the items I’m featuring are classics and will stand the test of time (translation-buy them now and keep in your closet for years/ aka non trendy). Her’s the link to all coats on sale at Zara…happy perusing

Here are a few of my favorites….

Let’s GO & DO!

Posted By: Terri
Category: Monday Mantra

It’s a brand New Year and we’re already winding down on week one. I’ve been sick with this nasty flu so I’m running behind on putting together my master plan for the yer ahead. No matter what you want to accomplish I have found that there are 4 tried and true steps to help you accomplish anything you desire:

  1. First and foremost put your plan of action down on paper (write your goals down manually-(think old school-pen to paper) studies show that it’s in the actual writing of your goals down on paper that make you more committed to the goal or desire.
  2. Break each goal up into small doable tasks by the day or week. Think Baby Steps. Commit 15 minutes to the goal you desire each day. You may wonder, what can be accomplished in 15 minutes? Lots! The trick is just getting started. You will often find that once you commit to 15 minutes it snowballs into an hour of productivity toward accomplishing your goal. Elizabeth Gilbert-author of Eat Pray Love-once said so brilliantly: “You can’t edit a blank page”-in other words you have to keep showing up and doing the process of creating-in whatever you desire or want to accomplish.
  3. You’re going to make mistakes along the way-BIG DEAL -mistakes can be corrected and in the end-mistakes are merely lesson’s that needed to be learned. If you do nothing you get nothing. So, keep at it. Keep showing up, doing what ever it is you want to do and someday very soon you will look back and see how far you’ve come.
  4. “Be fearless in the pursuit of your passion(s).” Ignore  naysayers (including that pesky inner voice that resides in fear)  whispering that you can’t do it or it isn’t possible. Remember… “that anything is possible…. even the impossible.”  (Final quote from the movie Mary Poppins Returns)
