My Winter Makeup Routine!

Many, many years ago (and it feels like a lifetime, really!) long before I finished college and started working my way through various firms and office gigs to get where I am now- I worked a couple of part-time jobs- including waitressing, doing lights at a comedy club and spending plenty of nights and weekends […]

Local Loves: The 1761 Old Mill

I had mentioned in a recent post that this past weekend marked what I think was the last series of belated-Christmas/New Year’s get-togethers with family and friends that I had lined up for the foreseeable future (although my birthday is this weekend- so we’ll see!) There was so much good food, great company and gift […]

The roads are slick- but not nearly as slick as some of the […]

Snow Bunnies and Booster Shots…

As I write this, I’m icing my arm and drinking a lot of water and Gatorade- having received my long awaited COVID-19 booster shot yesterday evening after work. So far, much like my last dosage of the regular Pfizer vaccine- I’m doing okay. I’m taking it easy on myself today, staying hydrated while working from […]

In Like A Lion…

Hello everyone- and hello 2022! Happy New Year and Happy (belated) 2nd Birthday to ‘Coffee & Chiffon’- which was first launched on New Year’s Day back in 2020. Simpler times. While I hit the ground running shortly after the ball dropped, and have been on the move and working since this past weekend wrapped up- […]
