What Have You Got to Share?

Bring on the inspiration!

Update, I did add low lights to my hair and a permanent cobalt stripe. Ignore the high-pitched, squeally voice, I’ve gotten used to the blue and love it. It doesn’t exactly make me feel radical or wild, but it does feel fun.


This week I’ve been reading some fabulous books that are inspiring me to change my blog. Eek! But I think it’s all for the good.
You’ll let me know with mass unsuscribes or comments:)

I’d love to know what inspired you this week. Please share your STYLEfocus by linking below!

    I have been inspired by Erin Gates new book, “Elements of Style”. Lovely photos that showcase her great decorating style. I like your new snazzy blue streak. Have some fun with it!

      I “followed” you on that trip, and admit I was envious. You had the best time ever. So much fun to connect with women you share so much in common with!!

      I have many inspiring books. My latest read is “How to Fascinate”. It’s about how the world see’s you. Not how you see the world.

    I like it. Very tastefully applied and an excellent color choice. It is wonderful to be able to make your own choices and not be stopped by corporate regulations regarding hair and appearance. My turn next…light pink for me!

    Enjoy your blog.
    Would love to hear your thoughts on the Kari Gran products that you mentioned on 6/02/14 post. I have very sensitive, older skin.
    Thank you.

      Hi Mary,
      I emailed you my thoughts on the Kari Gran products. I really like them. I plan to write a post on what skincare products I’ve tried and am using, next month. Thanks for asking!

    REALLY! Have always enjoyed your blog and sense of style, BUT—-A BLUE STREAK—no way, not classy or sophisticated!! Sorry, can’t believe the ayes votes would win.

      Hi Diane,
      I’m sorry the blue streak has offended you so much. I am many things, we all are. No woman is just one characteristic.
      There was never an intent to solicit votes for my blue streak. It was a statement of “fun”, I decided to make and share.
      I believe class and sophistication are not just determined by how we look, but also how we behave and treat others. I pride myself on being polite and treat others with respect.
      My outer appearance does not change who I am or how I behave.
      I am a constant work in progress and change as I continue to grow and age.
      Thanks for reading.

    Oh you radical, wild girl, haha. I love the streak of blue, it just gives off the tiniest bit of edge and carefree attitude which makes it quite stylish. I remember seeing this post on instagram and loved your voice and reaction. Curious as too what books you’re reading.

      I have a stack planned for the summer. So far there are no fiction and I might need to change that for my holidays. Any suggestions.
