There's something about dirty hair that looks amazing when you first wake up... too bad it doesn't last throughout the day. Eventually, my hair managed to collect itself up into a bun. Yay for the Prisma App for showing me how awesome my hair would look in dreads!
1. No paid vacation
2. No benefits
3. No freedom (People think you have more but you just feel obligated to take all and any work, just in case)
4. Overhead costs
5. Instability (This one, however, is true of gainful employment.)
1. I'm the boss!
The start of Seattle summers can be frustrating; the weather makes for a bipolar wardrobe. Those layers that you might have packed away in the hopes of sun and skin need to be kept close. I keep this cozy long sweater jacket and my camo cargos tucked in the back of the closet on the top shelf, just in case.
I bought this beautiful Guan Yin statue many years ago so that I could give her my wishes. Unfortunately the removable hand where I had planned to fit my tiny notes inside her was glued shut. I find it fitting that this Goddess of Compassion, Mercy and Kindness stands perched and ready for receiving those thoughts that have yet to reach her.
Nothing says, "Good morning ⛅️," like the perfect Victoria's Secret Pink bra. The first layer of my clothing routine is not only the sexiest, hopefully, it's the foundation of the rest of my day!
"Peace Talks Radio producer Paul Ingles interviews two leading King scholars, asking each to pick speeches from those years to focus on. You’ll hear from Dr. Vincent Harding, Professor of Religion and Social Transformation at Illiff School of Theology in Denver, Colorado and a personal friend and speech writing colleague of Dr. King in the 1960’s. Also mixed into our program, you’ll hear Dr. Clayborne Carson, who at Coretta Scott King’s request, has been directing the King Papers Project since 1985. Dr. Carson established the Martin Luther King, Jr., Research and Education Institute at Stanford University in 2005. The speeches these scholars chose were… King’s last address, the night before his assassination in Memphis in April, 1968. Also, the speech he made a year to the day before he was killed, called “Beyond Vietnam,” in which Dr. King came out publicly and explicitly in opposition to the Vietnam War. And from March of 1965, Dr. King’s remarks that he made at the conclusion of the Selma to Montgomery marches, considered a turning point in the struggle for Voting Rights and equality for African Americans."Click on this link. And have a happy and reflective MLK day!

This Thanksgiving I am looking forward to aging and being thankful for my health to carry me there. Find out why in the video, "Fabulous Fashionistas" about 6 women whose average age is 80. Among them, a youthful shop girl at age 75, the oldest working super model at age 85 and a mini-skirt wearing 87 year old dancer. These women indeed prove that if the personality fits, wear it!
We’ve returned again and again to cult film The Warriors as a source of inspiration. Walter Hill’s grimy 1979 thriller charts the interborough rivalry of New York City gangs as they rumble their way to Coney Island over the course of one long night. It’s a metropolitan spin on The Odyssey—sirens included.
We wanted to commemorate the similar lawlessness of a bygone summer with a film of our own. When school’s out, responsibility and playing by the rules take a vacation until further notice. Chrissie Miller teamed up with director Cass Bird and stylist Turner to stage a Warby Parker-style beachside scuffle in the form of a dance-off. The setting? Coney Island, of course. “The collection and the film celebrate the fun and mischief of summer in New York, and nothing is more classic summer in the city than escaping to the Coney Island boardwalk and eating Nathan’s with your friends,” co-founder and co-CEO Neil Blumenthal says.
“You feel like you’ve stepped into a time warp,” Miller says of the area’s preserved boardwalk, vintage signage, and scream-inducing rides. “We wanted it to feel like it could have been shot in the ‘70s, or it could have been shot yesterday.”
Growing up internationally, I remember my mother going out to several Naval events. Her look was always put together but never overdone. Her hair coiffed perfectly into an understated beehive she carried on her the perfect accessories; a matching belt, pastel angora sweater, dainty charm bracelet, grapevine earrings and, of course, a fabulously chic clutch. With the resurgence of 50's style, due to Mad Men obsessed women turned ladies, I think this is the perfect photo to reflect on this Mother's Day. Take a tip from this original fashionista, my mama.
