Greetings fellow Divas! I am writing this from beautiful Colorado - where it is snowing again - Just when you think it should be springtime! Well, Spring is in the air nevertheless, and you can see it in fashion, in makeup and in home décor! As always, I love sharing with you my favorite new finds...

Check out the ever fabulous www.nordstrom.com where you can tell that that spring is happening! Yellow is the color of the hour, and you can find it in bright tops, great shoes and everything in between. My fave is a tapestry blazer in oranges and yellows by E.C.I. and retails for $118.00. Pair it with a pair of cropped jeans for a casual look or a full skirt for a dressier fashion. It has beautiful rhinestone buttons, and also a brooch to boot - You can’t miss! My other new fave is the JAG Jeans - This is a small company that manufactures only to a few accounts and the jeans are FAB! The have a bit of stretch, they fit long legs and look great on all body types!


Of course I would be remiss if I didn’t mention my all time fave accessory place - www.brightoncollectibles.com – with updates in all colors for spring! Check out our new bright leather bags - a steal at $145-180. In hot pink, lime green and turquoise - You just can’t beat it!

We also have coordinating sandals, and watches to boot! Be on the lookout for some great promotions and contests in April and May- Check the website for details!


I recently had the best facial I have ever had and it was one that used La Mer products. If you have never tried these products, I highly recommend them! The line was created by a NASA scientist in the 1950’s who was burned badly and wanted to find something that would help. Using a combination of sea kelp that has been fermented along with blue algae and deconstructed waters, this stuff is miraculous! Pricey, but worth it if you have skin problems such as rosacea or uneven skin types - My skin has never looked or felt better.

This spring make sure you…

  • Buy something in a bright color - black is great, but color is NOW!
  • Spend some time outside - take a walk, ride a bike - enjoy the planet!
  • Send a card to someone you love - Make a connection!
  • Remove one thing that is unhealthy in you life - I cut out caffeine and sugar and I have never felt better!

Enjoy Life and Many Blessings!
