clothing color capsule

September 28, 2015


Ralph Lauren 2015 Fall

Aside from black and a touch of gray, these are pretty much the only colors I wear. I know a scant touch of cream, and seriously milky coffee are also missing from this color capsule. In making one, I realize that I don’t own enough espresso tops, or plummy violet. I look best in saturated […]

good lordy, she’s forty

September 24, 2015


Almost. As I’ll tell my dermatologist today when I file the new patient forms, I’m still 39. At least for five days. I find this aging business comforting, especially to know that my memory is getting dodgy. I think we’re meant to lose our minds as we age, if for no other reason than to […]

the emmy’s are killing me

September 20, 2015



All decked out in my pajamas and pearls, yet I nearly skipped the Emmy awards this year because I’m obsessed with watching the Netflix Original Series The Killing.

masters of sex

August 2, 2015


An episode of Masters of Sex aired tonight about a man whose wife had an aneurysm, a stoke. People call her a vegetable, her husband calls her a corpse. He says his life is over, being her caretaker.  I have a pit in my stomach. I am afraid. I realize Phil is on blood thinners, […]

Oh, the hell. I know people read books and pin quotes of inspiration about loving ourselves, as we are, because let’s face it, hating ourselves hasn’t served us well all these years. So, fine. I love myself and my sexy curves, but I hate shopping for clothes who haven’t gotten the memo.

movies to see in 2015

April 27, 2015


2015 Best Films

While, yes, without apology, I’m undeniably waiting for the return of The Bachelorette on May 18, I’m also currently enjoying a new, sure to be favorite, show titled, “HAPPYish” on Showtime. Despite its mixed reviews, I feel as if this balls-out mama (Katherine Hahn) is my outspoken soul sister. We’ll see. Movies I’m looking forward […]

the last to know

Girl Scout Appreciation

Totally crying today. It’s only a little to do with the house hunt—which has driven me to stress headaches and gagging fits over a toilet. Self-reflective as I am, when I feel any emotion deeply, I often stop to figure out what’s behind it. “When’s the first time you remember feeling this way?” I go […]
