I Took A Break From Social Media, Here’s What I learned

“For me, I knew it was time to take a break from social media when it became mudane and a chore to weed through my feed a few times a day. For a long time I looked forward to hearing about the good things that were happeing with my friends and family, rejoicing in their triumphs and touchtone moments, lending support, encouragement when someone needed it, even shedding a tear when someone lost a parent, a spouse, a child. It made me feel like I was being a friend and part of a close knit family. But there started to come a time where I began to feel isolated and disconnected from some of my Facebook friends and family, and it became painful to feel like a stranger on the outside looking in.”

The Promise

I have a confession to make.  I have stumbled upon the ultimate lie and the most brilliant truth that we can ever tell ourselves.  Every moment, every new life, every new beginning is wrought with excitement, with possibilities, and the hope, that all will be wonderful, beautiful….right.  The promise of everything good, everything that can, and…

Antiques. Fine Wine. Old.

I have a confession to make. I am committed to growing old gracefully, to obliterating and diminishing, any wrinkle that shows up on my face, to keeping my hair, long, free of grays, perfectly colored and coiffed, to stay youngish…relevant, ME!  Now while I am committed, and all in, society on the other hand is…

Weapons of Self Destruction and Other Casualties

I have a confession to make. I am my own worst enemy!  Methodically, calculating, at any given moment, I am…raging a war inside myself, and in 51 years, I have amassed an arsenal of weapons of self-destruction, that I am ready to unleash on myself in a moments notice, with my finger on the trigger. …

Writer’s Block and Shit

I have a confession to make.  I have had writer’s block for the last three weeks.  If you follow my blog or occasionally peruse the pages, you know that in addition to my passion for cooking, food, and motherhood, I like to have at, and write.  I have currently, about 35 drafts that I am…

Assertiveness. The New Sexy

I have a confession to make.  I have not always been the self-assured, sinfully witty, assertive, badass, I am today! I was not even in the same realm! For many years I struggled to fit in, to not feel invisible, and to rise above the madness and self-doubt that plagued my manic mind with self-defeating,…

My Blogging Anniversary….One Year

I have a confession to make! I can hardly believe that one year has come and gone.  YES, my friends it has been a year since I launched my blog!  What a long, strange trip it’s been!  While my first blog post was officially launched on January 11, 2017, I didn’t go live on Facebook,…

You Do You. I’m Good.

 have a confession to make.  I have never been the chick that takes unsolicited advice, (unless it’s where to score killer heels, how I can achieve a non-surgical butt lift, or how to nab a lip plumper, that will give me Angelina Jolie-esque, lips) nor can I handle stark criticism, very well.  It’s not that…

Fuck Feelings. They Make a Pill For That

WARNING….Crazy Chic Rant…..

“We are not even through the first week of the new year and if one more person utters the words, New Year, New Me, I am going to lose my shit.  It isn’t that I don’t appreciate anyone making the effort, it’s just that sooner or later we all are compelled, nudged, and bitch slapped, into making some sort of change, either  because we have reached a turning point, we have a health crisis, or we just plain feel it with every fiber of our being that it needs to be so.”

Beyond Oz…It’s All Just Smoke and Mirrors

“We are not here to be medicore at life, we are here to achieve greatness, excel, and make the world a better place for ourselves, our children, and humanity, and if you are not living a life that is intentional, full of purpose, and authentic, you are not living!”
