Happy Monday! I know it’s been a minute…well…more than a minute since my last post was in early December BUT  here’s the good news… I’m back and ready to give you a dose of Glamour, Inspirational Decor, organizing tips, fashion features and low and behold a newly designed blog is in the works  and will be ready for it’s debut in just a few weeks.

That being said, I need to catch up and wish you the Happiest of New Years in addition to my best wishes that 2022 will be filled with every blessing for you and your family.

As we start the last week of January (How did it get to be the last week of January already??) I’m featuring 3 easy peasy items that you can do to add a bit of happy to your day. It’s Monday for goodness sake and I have a feeling we could all use a little something to put  some “pep in our step.”

Monday Mantra

A friend of mine posted this lovely message on another social media site and I thought it was a perfect Mantra to embrace as we move into 2022….

As we continue out promise to eat healthy this year..(does this sound even remotely familiar)  I wanted to repost my Kale Salad Recipe that is  easy, delicious  and super healthy! It’s your basic win, win!


Kale Salad Recipe

  • Organic Kale (pre washed bag) (chop in food processor)
  • Organic Persian Cucumber (1 large whole chopped)
  • Organic small Cherry Tomatoes (10-12 chopped in halves)
  • Organic Carrots (Grate 2-3)
  • Dried Cranberries (1/2 cup)
  • Sunflower Seeds Unsalted Roasted (1/2 cup)
  • Feta (1/4 to ½ cup)
  • Garbanzo Beans 1 can (rinsed in  a meshed strainer prior)  before adding to salad

Portions of each item can be increased or decreased as per your preference.

Combine all ingredients and mix together gently

                                    *All items listed are available from Trader Joes

Salad Dressing

  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil  (1/2 cup)
  • 3 T Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 T Dijon
  • 1 T Honey

Shake in a jar until combined. Pour over salad  

Drizzle extra honey on top if desired

(Store remaining dressing in fridge)


Finally, if you’re in need of an  “instant” pick me up-Buy yourself a bouquet of flowers. I spotted TULIPS at Trader Joe’s this morning and it was a wonderful reminder that warmer days are ahead not to mention their pretty in pink.
