A Few of My Favorite Things: January 2021

As I’m writing this, another series of snowstorms are making their way across my part of New England and covering us with a few additional inches of powder- and while I would have undoubtedly been dreading that forecast a couple of years ago- the still-working-from-home, doesn’t-have-to-commute-or-shovel me is quite content with watching the snow fall […]

Playing With Pantone…

Last year, I had talked about incorporating Pantone’s “Color of The Year” into my wardrobe, accessories and makeup- which was actually pretty easy since I owned a lot of “Classic Blue” pieces and products already- so as 2020 was coming to a close I was excited to see what color would be announced as the […]

Checking Into The Weldon Hotel…

As part of my “Continue Getting More Healthy/Fit” resolution for 2021- I’ve started walking more each day since New Year’s in order to get my heart pumping and make sure I’m hitting my steps for the day since I’m still working remotely and spend most of my mornings/afternoons sitting down. I usually walk Monday-Saturday- taking […]

“I paint life as I would like it to be.”

Stockbridge, Massachusetts- about an hour and a half away from where I live- is a quaint resort town out in the Berkshires. It’s Main Street is lined with small shops, cafes, galleries- and the historic Red Lion Inn. Despite it’s distance from the thriving artist community in the Pioneer Valley, Stockbridge has it’s own share […]
