Hello 2020..New Year’s “Intentions”

Posted By: Terri
Category: Uncategorized

Hello 2020.

Celebrating Christmas at my dear friend’s home-Matt Van Dyne.

Everybody ,and I do mean EVERYBODY seems to be basking in the glow of a New Year and  the start of a  whole new decade.  I don’t recall this sort of hoop-la when we transitioned from 2009-2010, but then again there’s something about  saying the year 2020 out loud and  perhaps the association to perfect vision that makes this year so much more special.

So what are your resolutions this year? Have you made any resolutions for the year ahead or are you going with  the latest mantra of setting New Year ‘s “intentions?”

Intention.  That seems to be the buzz word as of late. Most likely because year after year this whole New Year’s resolution  mantra doesn’t really seem to stick for more than a week or two. Whereas, an intention is something you can strive to change or attain in increments. Intentions give you the permission to be mindful of what you want to change but doesn’t make you feel like a failure if you slip up. Soooo let’s make nice (to ourselves) and go for an intention to make our life better.

Here are my  New Year’s intentions for 2020…

Professional

1.Grow my blog Change the format, add  sponsors, update technologies.

2.Produce  and mount the musical  I’ve written. It’s been in my SAVE folder for far to long and it’s time to take it from the page to the stage.

3. I’ve  written a book (a comedy about my divorce) and intend to pitch it as a TV show or movie). If all this craziness  during my divorce hadn’t happened to me, it would have been hilarious. (Lawyers dying, Lawyers going into labor 25 minutes before a court appearance,  etc. etc. and that’s just the tip of the iceberg with all the insanity that ensued. I thank God (everyday) for having a comedy gene ensconced in  my DNA. As they say”funny is money”-I sure hope so. My divorce cost me the price of a condo in LA and I wasn’t the one who filed for it in the first place. Hilarious!

Personal 

Meditate everyday

Have more fun in life.

Continue a healthy lifestyle and perhaps add a new recipe and workout each week to the mix.

Read a book a month

Enjoy life MORE!

I hope you can take a moment before the month gets into full swing and set some intentions for yourself. Wishing you the most wonderful year ahead.

xoxo

Terri

Holiday Quick List… The Tuxedo Jacket

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion Fashion tips Uncategorized

The Tuxedo Jacket is a closet staple. It’s oh so chic, sleek and versatile. Trust me when I say that this is one wardrobe piece that you will wear for years to come.  You can dress it up or down and it can be  paired with a multitude of items depending on the occasion and your preference.

If you have a black tie event, than by all means go GLAM and wear the jacket with a slim fitting tuxedo pant. You can also pair your tuxedo jacket with a long or short skirt,  a pair of sleek leather pants or  even your basic jeans (preferably  in black) .

Tuxedo jackets are available at every price point and can be made to look even more expensive  by having it tailored to fit. Pay special attention  before you purchase to jacket details with special consideration on the lining of the jacket. A fully lined tuxedo jacket creates a more steam lined  silhouette and  isn’t that the whole point of wearing a tuxedo jacket -to look as sleek and chic as possible!

 

Dolce &; Gabbana Tuxedo Jacket @ Italist.com $1,821.00 Sale:$1375.75

Ralph Lauren Resort 2019 $1,990.00 Available at Ralph Lauren.com

Zara Tuxedo Jacket $89.90

DKNY Satin Trim Tuxedo Jacket Net-a-porter.com $245.00

Black Friday Sales & Shopping Tips

Posted By: Terri
Category: Uncategorized

Another Thanksgiving  is on the books and before you put your fork down after  partaking in the last bite of pumpkin pie, the department stores were open and ready to jump start  the official holiday shopping season…commonly referred to as Black Friday.  As I sit at my computer and scroll the MASSIVE list of Black Friday Sales, one can only conclude that EVERYONE is having a Black Friday Sale. To make things a  bit more manageable (translation-EASY),   I have compiled a list of my favorite fashion sites to peruse  (see below). I’ve also included  some shopping tips to help you stay focused on the task  at hand…Happy Holiday Shopping,

Holiday Shopping Tips…

No matter where you shop or what you’re looking to buy  this little checklist will help you stay on point  and get your Christmas shopping done in record time and at a savings….

  1. I KNOW you’ve heard this a 1000 times but it bears repeating to drive the point home..MAKE A LIST. Seriously make a COMPLETE list of every single person you want to purchase a gift for.
  2. Make a budget for your Christmas gift shopping.
  3. Next to each persons name that you’re buying  a gift for-list a few hobbies, gift suggestions  or interests and also list  budget range that you feel comfortable with per person.
  4. Divide list of gift items by category . You can cross off a number of like minded friends by purchasing gifts in a single  store or section.
  5. Consider going Homemade. Don’t think you have to go all “Martha Stewart” but perhaps put together a personalized Photo book via Shutterfly or Mixbook, make a beautiful basket of your best homemade baked goods or treating your friend to their favorite spa treatment  or service with a gift certificate.

I hope this quick list will aid in making this an easy and stress fee shopping season.

Magical Moment

Posted By: Terri
Category: Uncategorized

This is not my usual post where I share some ditty about fashion, style, decor or a motivational or timely tip. Toda,y I feel compelled to  discuss something we all need to do ASAP..for our own happiness and overall well being. It goes without saying that I am motivated to share the following observation…

Is it Christmas already? It seems as if the Xmas Season is in FULL swing and we haven’t even celebrated Thanksgiving. Call me crazy,but have YOU noticed a  large number of Pre-Black Friday Sales ?  In addition,I’ve also been aware of  Christmas music being played everywhere! Yes, I’ve heard Silent night at the Grocery store already, not to mention Christmas carols being piped in at every store in the Mall. May I gently remind everyone that we haven’t even celebrated Thanksgiving yet.  Please don’t get me wrong-I’m not the Grinch BUT can’t’t we at least give Thanksgiving it’s due. What’s the hurry? What’s the rush?

In my humble opinion, I think we all need to take a collective breath and SLOW down. We are moving at warp speed to get everything done and we’re forgetting to take a moment  and enjoy where we are now.

So for today…let’s take a moment or even two and just BE. Stop…look around… breath and be thankful for the moment. AND P.S. Thanksgiving is two weeks from today. Have a beautiful Day!

Today’s Sunrise in LA…..Beautiful.
