Give your Mood a BOOST

Tuesday is tip day on the blog and bearing in mind that we have collectively been through the ringer between Covid, the Election and .. oh let’s just say it- a number of other things that have disrupted our daily rhythm- I thought a collection of timely tips might be of help to make you feel better and at the very least give you a smidge of knowledge that  may help in getting you back on track.

DIET

To quell that notorious Covid 15: Rumor has it  that some people have gained weight due to stress, anxiety and gyms being shut down.  Sooo let’s start with a little metabolism booster.

Foods for relieving stress

Exercise (Without the GYM)

 

And last but certainly not least…If you’re having trouble getting your Zzzzzz’s.

Monday Motivtion

Posted By: Terri
Category: Monday Mantra

A Prayer from me to you…

Words that resonate for the Better… in and for ALL of us. 

I came across a quote this morning and thought it couldn’t be more appropriate in light of the election results finally being in and a promise that Change is  truly on it’s way.

It is my deepest hope that our country and our collective well being is on  a path to healing and living better lives in the days to come.

Have a great Monday and “If you can’t see the Change…Be the change.” 

It all starts within each of us.

Sew Happy #1-A Tale of 2 Channel Inspired Jacket(s)

Posted By: Terri
Category: Sew Happy

Welcome to  the first Sunday installment of Sew Happy. If you follow this blog on any sort of regular basis I bet you won’t be one bit surprised that I am starting off my first sewing spotlight on  a Chanel “inspired” sewing project that I made not once but twice.

Chanel Jackets are versatile and timeless but the price point is just a bit out of my budget at the moment. I wear my  Chanel inspired jackets with jeans (usually in a dark black or deep blue) pair it with a tee or sweater underneath and opt for a pair of pumps or ankle boots to complete my look. I live in LA where the dress code leans toward “upscale casual ” ( I know that can sound confusing..) but a  jacket  paired with well fitted jeans and pumps or ankle boots seem to be a perfect formula for looking pulled together without trying to hard. It’s a great “go to combo” to wear for a casual business meeting,  date night, or a lunch with your girlfriends.

My fail safe pattern without question is Vogue 7975 . It fits beautifully (with a tad of tailoring) and offers a multitude of design options.

My first attempt at a Chanel Inspired Jacket was made with a simple black and white fleck wool.

Introducing “Sew Happy”

Posted By: Terri
Category: Sew Happy

I am sooo Happy to announce a new category on the blog  Go To Glamour Girl starting tomorrow. It is aptly entitled Sew Happy, and will be a Sunday feature , where I  will spotlight items I have sewn which  are often inspired by Designer Originals.

Many of you don’t know (because quite frankly I have never mentioned it) that I make  (as in sew) a good majority of my clothes. My love for high fashion BUT not high prices began early in life..(like  playing with my Barbie doll early) and has never waivered.  Bearing in mind that Designer clothes and their counterpart high prices are not something that everyone can afford one must find alternate ways of looking stylish.  SEW happy has aided me for the majority of my life allowing me to fill my closet with Designer inspired items that I enjoy making at a fraction of the cost.

My hope in bringing you this new feature  Sew Happy on the blog is to inspire you to embrace a love of making items for yourself and doing it all within your budget.

Sew Happy starts tomorrow.

Here’s a sneak peak at tomorrows feature:

It’s finally Fri…Yay!

My Gawwwwwd this has been such a stressful week. As we wait patiently for ballots to be counted it  continues to be a roller coaster  ride with more twists and turns than a Disneyland ride.

Bearing in mind that we need to do something to decompress for (sanities sake)I offer the following suggestions: I hope you find something in the mix to bring you a moment of calm.

  1. High on my list: Binge watch Emily in Paris..(Netflix) 10 episodes…GO!

2.  Yoga : I have been a devotee of Boho Beautiful since quarantine. Julianna & Mark Spicoluk offer top rated yoga classes that are beautifully done and offer a  wide range of wonderful classes in the comfort of your home.  Check out a wide assortment of yoga, stretching and plant based menu and recipe videos on their You tube site. (Click on image to go directly to their Channel)

3.  Take a walk…

4. Get lost in a good book. A Memoir By Grace Coddington. A fascinating read from the former Model and Creative Director of Vogue.

5.  Breakfast in Bed.  Seriously one of my favorite things to do. Set  up a beautiful tray and treat yourself to taking time to slowly start your day.

Have a beautiful and relaxing weekend. xoxoT
