Apple Watch Series 2 Review

Most of the time I’m fashionably late regarding technology trends. It took every fiber of my stubborn being to make the change from a Motrola Razor flip phone (do you remember those!?) to a more era appropriate iPhone. Likewise, I wasn’t convinced I needed a “smart” watch until I noticed everyone and their mother, brother, sister and cousin sporting one! I had to have one. I was planning on asking  for one for Christmas, but Christmas came on August 12th when my sweet husband (so fun to say!) surprised me with one as a…

Big Magic: My 5 Takeaways

A dear friend, and my former English professor in college, suggested I read Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert years ago. He and I are very alike as far as personalities and interests are concerned; we’re both a bit anxious, we both appreciate good theatre and deep conversations, and we’re both arguably certifiably insane if we aren’t being at least a bit creative (perhaps we’re both certifiably insane even if we are creating, but that’s besides the point haha) That’s why he wanted me to read this book in…

Golden Feathers in My Hair

I’d say I do a fair amount of things pretty well. I can swim like a fish, I make a mean batch of pancakes, and I’m no stranger to the stage. Hairstyling however, was never my forte.

One of my go to hairstyles is a messy bun. It’s sort of fool proof because if…

OTS Striped Top

“OTS” had no meaning to me whatsoever before this spring and summer when it sort of infiltrated fashion slang and shorthand overnight. “OTS” is an abbreviation for “off the shoulder”, a silhouette and style of clothing which pretty much immediately stole my heart the way Harrison Ford did when I was a wide-eyed child watching him as Indiana Jones for the first time. There is just something about an off the shoulder top that is not only super cool and comfy, but also very flattering. I think I feel my most confident in…

Custom Navy Dress with eShakti

I’ll be the first to admit that while I love fashion and shopping for new wardrobe pieces, I find the whole process very, very frustrating at times. All too often I find a piece that I love on the hanger, but when I put it on my body…it’s just not quite right. The length is a smidge too long, or the neckline isn’t quite as flattering as it could be, and I’m left empty-handed. How great would it be if you could pick a clothing piece, and tailor it…
