"HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY RHONDA!"

I am wishing my little sister Rhonda a stupendous, stylish, sophisticated and fabulous birthday today. Enjoy and Be Inspired!
I wish I was there to spend your big day with you but I hope you do whatever makes you happiest; a fresh manicure, sipping champagne, a day at the spa, finishing a great book, dancing solo or not, getting lots of hugs, taking a bubble bath, shoe shopping and/or the thrill of a shopping chase-finding your next great fashion obsession, or listening to your very own soundtrack, (see below).

Style for Style, I hope you enjoy my inspiration board that is simply dedicated to you and all your fabulousness. I love you to pieces and I miss ya kid...cheers!

FABULOUSLY INSPIRED BY RHONDA!
She’s still a lofty chic, with a great fashion sense,
She’s always had a “mean shoe game”,
She likes her baubles, bangles and bracelets stacked,
She loves the sound of the snare and the base “high hat”,
She prefers for her colors to pop,and her bling to sing.
She's experimental not superficial,
She's is elemental and quintessential, 
and at times a little judgmental.
She's got soul, sass, savvy and sense,
She's uptown, downtown, around the way and 
a little dose of back in the day,
She's my fabulous sister and she"s beautiful inside and out.
- Moi

HAPPY BIRTHDAY RHONDA!!!!!

THE PERFECT WEEKEND ESCAPE

It's a east coast  Labor Day get-a-way in this dreamy escape. There are salty New England seaside getaways, and then there’s Captain Jack’s Wharf. Located in Provincetown’s West End, it was built at the turn of the last century for fishermen to store their bait and tackle and quickly became an artist hangout. Looks like the perfect place to spend labor day weekend.
Enjoy and Be Inspired!

HAPPY LABOR DAY WEEKEND!

TRAVELING CARS ADVENTURE

Off-roading never looked so cute and creative, I am loving the idea behind these small toy cars captured from extremely dramatic perspectives. The series has allowed the creator, 21-year-old Swiss photographer Kim Leuenberger, to explore the world through her creativity and  "Traveling Cars Adventure". My favorites are the beach scenes. Enjoy and Be Inspired!
