Hello Monday! I don’t know about you but I could  sure use a little pick me up. As we hit the one month mark of Quarantine I have so many friends asking: “When is this going to be over?”My reply-NOT soon enough. But as they say-it is what it is and we must stay the course in hopes of getting back to a more vibrant life -out of lock down. Until then.stay safe and healthy and find some happy in your day. xoxoT

Let’s talk Pretty Petals

Posted By: Terri
Category: Glamorous Decor

 

Passover & Easter  are basically cancelled this year due to the continuing quarantine. We’re unable to gather in our collective congregations and celebrate these spiritual milestones.

Sooo,what can we do to bring some sort of significance to the holiday at hand?

The answer may be as simple as  setting a beautiful bouquet of flowers  on your table in pretty pastels and gathering our quarantined family together. Flowers can be found at your local grocery store at very affordable prices.  Basically- a doable and easy way to bring some PRETTY into your day. Then you just gather the family together-(which will be a total snap- because we are quarantined) and take a moment of prayer and gratitude together… surrounded with the smell of fragrant flowers.

Peaceful… Prayerful and Pretty.

Here are a few centerpieces that I hope will inspire you to go out and purchase some pretty petals for your family to enjoy.

Be well, stay safe and healthy.

Happy Passover & Happy Easter to all my lovely readers.

I am grateful for you and wish you a beautiful celebration together.

xo

Fabulous Face Masks for Charity

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion tips

What did you do this weekend? Welllll, I got busy and thought to myself-what can I do to help this whole Corona virus debacle, (as we are now required to wear face masks in the greater LA area).After about a nano second, I thought best to insert some  STYLE into the face mask situation. Fast forward and a number of hours later-I drafted a pattern, cut cotton fabrications and top stitched every detail for extra measure  and whah lah-Stylish face masks were ready for the masses.  To sweeten the deal and also do some good in the world, I have decided to donate a portion of each  and every sale to one wonderful and worthy cause –Baby2Baby.

Check out additional styles on  my Go To Glamour Girl and Terri Turco Facebook  Page.

Here’s a sweet sampling of my offerings below:

Friday…Tips to Calm You in Quarantine

Posted By: Terri
Category: Health & Wellness

This self quarantine is starting to wear on many and we must find ways to stay productive, positive and healthy. As we navigate through this difficult time, I have a few suggestions to help you make each day as pleasant as possible.

Routine is EVERYTHING! I KNOWWWW this is a hard one because quite frankly there is no where to go! With little if any routine because you can’t leave the house -I urge you to wake up and go to bed around the same time everyday.

Ditch the P.J.’s and GET DRESSED. It’s soooo easy to stay in your PJ’s all day BUT you’ll feel better about yourself and keep your spirits up if you make the effort to put on something presentable. If you’re really going for the GOLD-put on some make up and spritz your favorite perfume..whal- lah instant mood lifter.

Get your Workout IN! Gyms are closed, personal trainers must stay put and  forget group fitness classes so what’s a Glamour Girl to do to keep the pounds at bay? First and foremost you can still walk outside (which I highly recommend) I’ve been clocking in 2 walks daily and aiming for 10,0000 to 12,000 steps a day to keep pounds at bay. Add into that some strength training with at home weights, and a plethora of videos I’m participating in via You tube (my workout  buddy). Here are two of my favorites:

**Boho Beautiful (Yoga ) https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=%23BohoBeautiful

**Coach Kel  (Barre Class)  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EYFIb4VS7BM

Phone Calls to stay connected: Go old school and pick up the phone. Call friends and family- it’s time to reconnect and not by text. You need some sort of human interaction.  Now more than ever it’s important to stay connected -even though we must keep “social distancing” in check. I live alone and haven’t been with anyone I know in 3 weeks. The phone has been  my life line..literally.

Time to Hobby UP! Read a good book, write that play,book or movie , bake, sing, dance,sew something -you get the picture! It’s time to insert some enjoyable tasks into your routine because let’s face it- you have a little extra time on your hands.

I hope you’re all staying healthy and happy and taking a moment of reflection to count our blessings.

Be Well, take care.  We will get through this together. xoxoT

Christian Dior Ad 1957

 

It’s time to…. Go Back to Gloves!  Gloves  are one of the best ways NOT  to spread germs. (and let’s just be frank -that fun fact is a MAJOR priority right now.

I often wonder…Why did we ever stop wearing these stylish hand covers in the first place?

Gloves protect one  from spreading germs  not to mention that they’re uber stylish and absolutely compliment a look. It’s the perfect accessory because it fashionable and functional!

For your enjoyment and inspiration I’ve offered a bit of a throwback to gloves today in addition to providing you with some updated selections for the season.

Have a glove-ly day. Stay safe and be well. xoxoT
