Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and that your Monday is off to a great start. I’ve been working on a project that is taking mountains of my time to complete… hence my lack  of time to blog BUT I  wanted to check in and give you a “Moment of Monday  Motivation” in case you need a little reminder of how wonderful you truly are…

 Monday Moment (and a  gentle reminder) of Motivation!

Today,  I’d also like to share a Delightful Dose of Decorating! I hope it will LIGHT UP your day and bring you some inspiration to consider adding a bit more sparkle into your life.  Full disclosure, I’ve always been a major fan of chandeliers and firmly believe that a well appointed chandelier can be hung in ANY ROOM IN YOUR HOUSE. Yes, any room! What can I say-I’m a girl who loves a little or a lot of bling and if done tastefully- can add a glorious and glamorous touch to any space.

Here ae a few fabulous Lighting resources to peruse:

Monday Mantra & Haute Hats

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion Monday Mantra

Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and if you’re blessed with children-may I wish you a belated Happy Mother’s Day.

It’s a brand new week and to start things off on a STYLE note- I thought you might enjoy a sampling of  Haute Hats that were worn this past weekend at the Kentucky Derby. I have been lucky enough to attend in years past and I am here to confirm that the women who dress for the Derby are NOT messing around. The hat is the main attraction but the rest of the ensemble is reallllly  thought out! Enjoy!

Monday Mantra & Mother’s Day Gift Options

Posted By: Terri
Category: Monday Mantra

A Beautiful Way to walk through the world…

Mother’s Day is fast approaching and  time is tick, tick, ticking away for you to find the perfect gift. It goes without saying that I am a BIG FAN of buying something for your Mother that will make her feel special and avoid giving her anything even remotely resembling a household item/appliance or worse yet… something for the home.

If you’re at a loss what to give Mom (because you’ve exhausted the usual suspects of a beautiful scarf, a bottle of her favorite perfume & bath lotions or flowers ordered from some 1-800 flower number which ALWAYS look better in the ad than they do on her table)…might I offer a few suggestions:

 A gift certificate for a Beauty/Spa Treatment.

Purchase Mom a gift certificate for a Personal Styling Session or Closet Organization.

Take Mom out for brunch and be sure to add a  sweet treat.

Monday Memo…

Category: Monday Mantra

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.

Monday Morning….and a Quick TIP!

Category: Monday Mantra

Sound Familiar????


Hello Monday and welcome Summer.  By any chance did you reach into your closet this morning and utter these words: (be honest) ….


To quell your carving for some Summer Style and to make sure you always have something to wear might I suggest always having on hand  at least ONE great Sundress  that you can throw on at a moments notice and dress it up with some heels and accessories or dress down with sneakers and a pair of sunnies.

Here are a few favorites that are on my radar. I hope  they will inspire you to savor the Sun in a fabulous Sundress for the Season at hand.
