This Work it Wednesday post features “Stay Off The Lawn!” -my new favorite nail color by OPI. This beautiful dark forest green color is a part of the OPI Fall/Winter 2016 Washington DC Collection. OPI has teamed up with actress Kerry Washington for a beautiful collection of rich colors that are “scandalously” beautiful!
I love OPI nail polish! The quality is great, my nail shop usually has the matching gel color I need, and the best part is the cool names they come up with for their nail polish colors! All the names for the colors in Kerry Washington’s DC Collection are related to Washington DC and the show Scandal, so cute! I found this blog called Valiantly Varnished that featured all the colors, names, and details about the collection pictured above,here. I definitely plan to try a few more colors this season.
Speaking of Kerry Washington… Scandal is coming back in January! Are you going to watch? I was a really big fan when the show first came out but now… not as much. Although I must say, the trailer for the premier looks pretty good! Who knows, it may be a good distraction from all the “real politics” these days!
If nothing else, I want to watch and see what Olivia is wearing, I love her style! I even have a coat I call my Olivia Pope coat, LOL! More details about my coat and outfit are in my previous post, here.
Well, I hope I have given you some ideas for cool fall/winter nail colors to try. This color is definitely perfect for the holiday season!
Time to deck the halls for the holidays! For years I looked forward to shopping for the perfect tree with the kids, baking cookies for Santa, and decorating the house for the holidays. Now that the kids are grown, I pull out my artificial tree and call it a day! The best part is I can start decorating whenever I want! Personally, I like to decorate for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving while everyone is out Black Friday shopping!
I usually change my color scheme about once every few years and this year I decided to go back to a very traditional look after several years of my sliver winter wonderland theme. To get ideas on a color scheme or theme, I like to go to the higher end stores like Crate & Barrel, Pottery Barn, and West Elm first. Then I head to Big Lots and other discount stores to find the same look for less! Checkout my holiday home tour video for decorating ideas to get that Pottery Barn holiday look on a Big Lots budget, LOL! Enjoy!
It is hard to believe that it has been a little over a year since my big chop on August 30, 2015! There have been a lot of fears, tears, and twists (literally) along the way. Sometimes when I need a little motivation to keep up my hair routine, I take a look at my pictures and I am encouraged by the growth and improvement in the health of my hair. I found this picture of my hair a few months before I decided to cut it off! Continue reading →
I am on vacation! Whoo hoo!! So I thought today would be a good day to do a little “throw-back” post on my laid back flannel shirt! This was from about a year ago but flannel shirts are still all the rage! Right now Old Navy has some great deals for Black Friday on flannel shirts that will make you want to grab a bunch!

This floral blouse from Ann Taylor Loft is the perfect blend of colorful florals in fall colors. The weather here in California has been so warm that this light floral top is a great way to wear fall colors but still feel cool. Continue reading →
Now is the perfect time to work on your new vision! As we near the end of the year, this is the time to create the vision you want for yourself in the new year. A few years ago I attended Oprah’s The Life You Want Weekend. Continue reading →
Hello November! For me, November means the start of what I like to call soup season! Soups are the perfect way to start the fall/winter season. I enjoy making soups for my family and finding ways to put a new spin on old favorites. When I came across this lasagna soup recipe on the Food Network Kitchen, I just had to try it! I made a few tweaks to the recipe but, it came out delicious! This recipe takes about 10 minutes to prep and 30 minutes to cook! Continue reading →
Have you tried Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken? If you are from the South, you probably have! However, for us West Coast folks this may be something new and it is right here in Los Angeles…better yet, it is right on Crenshaw and Pico minutes from my neighborhood! Continue reading →
The weather is a little gray and so is my “Gray Day” outfit this week! I love to wear caps, hats, and head wraps. As soon as we get a drop of rain or cool weather, I pull them out. This week I am wearing my favorite gray knit cap. I just love the rose detail and the snug fit! Continue reading →
