Frankly, I'm not a fan of winter wear...too much stuff to put on, take off and keep up with....hats, gloves, scarves, boots, sweaters, ear muffs, mittens, rubber boots...well - you get the picture, right?
But since I'd rather be warm and protected during the biting winter wind, I may as well be stylish.
Everyday we select clothing based on the weather or our mood for the moment. So why not, change head gear? This winter season, purchase a few new bold & brilliant babushkas for that pretty little head of yours.
Here are some of our top picks, thanks to real beauty.com.
I so look forward to my first whole turkey dinner for Thanksgiving. Yes...I'm a traditionalist - at least this year.
As the day draws nearer, I realize that I still have these 4 stubborn pounds from 3 months ago that are hanging on my thighs and waist like flies on sticky tape.
So, today's Monday. I've decided to ration my calories for the next 3 days so I can enjoy all the fixins on Thanksgiving Day.
Here's what makes sense to me:
Breakfast: Whole Oatmeal (no packaged stuff) with 1 tablespoon raisins, cicinnamon, Truvia sweetner
Lunch: Can of tuna packed in water on crackers or bed of lettuce
Dinner: Romaine lettuce salad with Perdue Grilled Chicken breast slices & veggies
Snack: sugar-free chocolate pudding (yum)
Vary these combinations over the next couple of days. You get the idea about the types of foods to indulge in. Then on Thursday, you can have a little more + the sliver of cake & pie. Gobble, gobble!
When Thanksgiving rolls around every single, solitary year (you get the picture), anxiety becomes my soul mate. What's gonna be different this year?...adding a new vegetable no one's ever heard of? ... baking a yummy dessert worth 1260 calories per bite? ...spiking the punch with 120 proof rum, vodka and gin?
Hey...how about sprucing up the table? RealSimple magazine shares 26 Beautiful Table Settings to add a little spice to the festivities. Somehow, a well designed and decorated table makes even the worst food taste great. It creates a mood that's festive and light. After all...we don't want Uncle Charlie telling those awful jokes & making those silly grunting noises again, do we?
Today is day 4.....cold temperatures in the NY metro regain and no heat. Change of clothes I(maybe)...but no hot shower water. An escape vehicle, except there are few gas stations with gas.
You never really know when it's exam time: a test of patience, a show of support; a chance to dial the emergency hotline to your Higher Power.
I realized that no matter how much damage had been done to my own property and in my neighborhood...someone else is suffering more.
The most important thing I can do is help a total stranger find water or food; get to a hospital; clean up the wreckage.
That's the beautiful side of ugly. You can do it too. Give and get back ten-fold.
