Daily Post



I sat motionless for so long that even my constant companion, mind chatter, paused mid-sentence to conduct an investigation. We both held our breath and waited in anticipation for the answer to the riddle women everywhere (over centuries even!), even the most educated, seem unable to decipher. No matter how different we are, (age, race, faith, education, background) what forever binds us together is our hunger to know the secret. Why are we magnets for the wrong man, and why is it so hard to let go once we finally figure it out? What is about a man saying I love you, regardless of what his actions are telling us, that keeps us turning the other cheek.


After repeated negative experiences, I finally realized I didn’t have the answer because I wasn’t asking the right question. It was never about what was wrong with and how to fix him, it…

Danny’s World: A Trip To the Farmer’s Market

I joked today with my friend Halston that you know you’re getting old when your adventure for the day is a trip to the farmer’s market.  Charlotte’s market is pretty cool though with a lot of stuff to look at and some interesting people…

At least the view is nice…

And we got flowers!!

Summer Lookbook + Catching Up


I hope everyone is having a fantastic summer! This summer has kicked off to a great start, with Ramadan already half way through and a looming internship in the big apple. I know it’s been a while since I posted here so I promise I am going to get back into it.

Filming this lookbook took a great deal of work, but boy was it worth it. I really do hope you enjoy it and maybe even end up buying some of the statement pieces. The looks were meant to be as diverse as possible, with different styles and color schemes.

The trends this season are definitely florals and the flared sleeves, as you notice in the lace detail of the green dress and in the striped top as well. A pop of color definitely transforms the looks from “mehh” to “woah,” so don’t forget your Taylor Swift classic red lipsticks…

Friday evening drive into the mountains.

Lucky Otters Haven


I was bored and needed to clear my head, so I headed into the mountains again.  I took the same route I took on Memorial Day.   It was later in the day though, so there was this wonderful late afternoon golden light that was just magical.

There was no one at the overlook where I stopped to take photos, and no signs of civilization at all, not even any cars on the road.  I felt like the only person in the world, and realized these mountains looked exactly this way thousands of years ago.   This is what the native Americans would have seen, long before there were any paved roads.

Campaign 13 – Let Me Serve You!

Avon 365

It is time for YOU to become my customer!

Shopping for Avon online is the new way to get your favorites and try some awesome products. I love being able to take my time and read about the products before placing them in my shopping cart.

I have tried the new Skin So Soft shave oil and it is marvelous. It moisturizes while youp93 shave! With shea butter extract, vitamins A and E for the closest most comfortable shave.

Great comfort in a lighter-than-shaving-cream formula that creates a silky smooth glide. Transforms into a creamy lather on wet skin.


• Moisturizes and leaves skin feeling soft

• Enriched with shea butter extract and vitamins A and E


• Massage a few drops onto wet skin before shaving and rinse off after shaving

On sale for $6.99

There are so many wonderful products, it is hard for me…
