Thursday-Trend Report

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

Fall 2019 is almost upon us and I’m here to give you fair warning that you’re going to be seeing allot and I do mean allot of Python Prints.This snake print has taken over for Fall and it is everywhere, dresses, coats, bags, skirts pants…you get the drift.

Like most every year since I can remember, the fashion forecasters deem that animal print will be BIG for the fall season ahead. Hellllllo. Animal print never goes out of style-I mean…EVER. It’s like saying that basic black is back. I ask you: When did it ever leave?

Animal print is back and it is here to stay. This season the python seems to be the “print of preference” when it comes to all the fashion ads I’ve been viewing. .

When it comes to wearing animal print, I have a few “suggestions” to bear in mind so you can look chic and sleek and still on trend:

  1. Rule#One: Only wear one animal print at a time. Please remember that any type of animal print is an accent and the only place there should be more than one animal print together is at the Zoo.
  2. Speaking of any animal prints including python-Faux is the only way to go. Please spare our beautiful wildlife (yes, even slithery snakes) no one will know the difference.
  3. Keep the rest of your outfit simple and streamlined (translation-go for solids and keep all other accessories simple)-it will give you an elevated and elegant look when adding that pop of animal print.
  4. Below are a few of my favorite items for Fall 2019..especially love the Marc Fisher boots at Macy’s- affordable and comfy!

Marc Fisher Retire Booties @ Macy’s $129.00 LOVING!

Tuesday’s Tip =Oh-so-doable

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashionable Food/Recipes

Today it was “Back to School” for many children, and for the rest of us, it was “Back to Work” after the long Labor Day Weekend. In the spirit of back to school and more importantly the topic of children- sadly many of these children will return to their classrooms hungry. I think we can all agree, that no child in this country (or any country for that matter) should ever go hungry. That being said, we all know that this is not the current reality BUT the good news today is…there is something we can do and it is “oh-so-doable”...thanks to the people at Williams Sonoma.

Williams Sonoma is offering celebrity-designed spatulas to raise money for the “No Kid Hungry” campaign to end childhood hunger. Williams Sonoma will donate 30% of the price from each limited-edition spatula + $5000 to No Kid Hungry, on behalf of the designer whose spatula sells out first!

**Price of each spatula is only $14.95 -like I said… “oh so doable.”

In addition to the spatulas, William Sonoma is also offering an assortment of festive mugs designed specifically for benefiting the No Kid Hungry cause. Appropriately named “Mugs that Matter_the price per mug is $12.95 with many of the selections on sale at 30% off using the code: SAVEMORE. Click on the image below to go directly to the selections available.

Williams Sonoma (No Kid Hungry “Mugs that Matter”)
Mug that Matter are priced at $12.95 each/ A select group of mugs are 30% off

USE CODE: SAVEMORE

No matter what your preference, I urge you to purchase one of these lovely items that benefit the No Kid Hungry cause or make a donation via the WS website. It’s a Tuesday tip that’s not only practical and easy to do but will lift your spirits in helping those less fortunate.

Here’s to a week ahead full of productive and purposeful moments.

Today we “double dip.” My sincere greetings for a Happy Labor Day and thoughts on living a life with purpose. Here’s to a Mantra that motivates.

Have a beauuutiful Day!

I want to wish you a happy Labor Day! I hope and pray that when it comes to labor your days are spent doing something that not only brings you purpose but a great sense of fulfillment in life. Labor isn’t labor if it’s done by doing something you love.

Good Bye Sweet Summer.

One S’more Sunday

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashionable Food/Recipes

Happy Sunday!

As the long Labor Day weekend comes to a close, you may want to indulge in one last”S’more Sunday” or perhaps a “Monday Soiree” to help celebrate the end of Summer and/or the beginning of back to school, back to work or your regular weekday routine.

If you’re in the mood to put together something with little or no effort and make the evening FUN, might I suggest setting up your very own S’mores bar.

It’s as simple as opening a package (or packages) of graham crackers and marshmallows, setting out your choice of chocolate decadence,and provide a source of heat (melting station) complete with bamboo or branch skewers.

Not only is this Summer dessert delish but so easy to prepare and a perfect ending to the Summer Season.

S’mores are synonymous with Summer and let’s just say I’ve never met anyone yet that can resist a S’more! Enjoy!

Pretty Serving plates and Jars make a S’more’s bar so Tre’s chic!to have
Easy Peasy Party Prep -Just Plate Up and Serve
Individual servings already prepared or offer at the end of the night as a parting gift
Beautiful branches or long bamboo skewers make for perfect Marshmallow Charring

The Headband is Back

Posted By: Terri

Headbands are back and they’re all grown up.

Image Courtesy of Street Style Inspiration

TREND ALERT: Hair trends are happening for Fall and let me tell you no one and I mean no one can could have predicted that headbands would be back. Yes my lovelies,the headband of the 90’s (remember Hilary Clinton wore them in droves) has made a comeback and it is big.

Headbands for Fall 2019 are padded giving a sort of halo (or as I like to think crown) effect to the wearer. Many come with additional embellishment which one can decide to wear on depending on the occasion.

Headbands for Fall are back and bigger than ever. Enjoy!
