some of the things I'm definitely taking along with me
this luscious Kate Spade sandal called "CORY"
her shoes are COMFORTABLE, the main requirement
when doing a lot of walking. I mean, there is just no
way I would suffer hurting feet while I'm trying to have fun
& look fabulous.
I asked Iris Apfel and she agreed !
& this little top because it's so forgiving,
even if you don't like your arms you can show a bit
off shoulder and be just fine.
little top is Bailey
all of you who read my blog know I'm not wearing jeans, especially NOT to
the Amalfi Coast of Italy
but I will wear this
with those sandals and the top,
the poly pant is by Alexis find them here
& they are WASHABLE
& this lovely bag, it's indestructible
so you won't mind putting it on the floor when dining
& it weighs almost nothing
the Longchamp Le Pliage Nylon bag comes in many colors too
well, this is only ONE outfit, so there will be many more to
I'm definitely thinking BAGS (handbags)
because I don't want to be overburdened
& there is simply no reason to take multiples of styles.
this is the time the big LV tote comes out,
always take it when travelling, it doesn't match anything,
but it's super sturdy and timeless,
pop another smaller bag inside with all my travelling needs,
passport, meds, phone, IPad, earbuds, a bit of makeup,
protein bars, Starbuck's Instant Drink Mix, a dry powder, in the
little tube packets, mix with water & you're good.
& my Kindle.
& maybe some fuzzy footie socks
(cannot bear bare feet in public places)
these are airplane/terminal shoes I love
more to come, ladies.
I might plan my entire travel wardrobe right here on the blog !

recently had an opportunity to have dinner in this amazing home in Houston,
opened for a charity function, the wonderful host & hostess allowed the attendees to wander a bit.
one of the main features we wanted to see was the much talked about wine cellar.
this is truly one in a million
& that's just about what they raised during the evening for one of the most worthy causes
in our city. a beautifully orchestrated event where every single person had a wonderful time.
in fact, no one wanted to go home !!
one of the lesser known facts about Houston is just how
generous people are, whether it's charity underwriting,
doing something wonderful for children,
education, healthcare, caring for animals, etc.
& of course, all of you know of our JJ Watt,
a Houston Texan football player,
who raised $47 MILLION for the hurricane relief efforts.
he gets out there and works alongside the regular
craftsmen, he waded in water up to his waist to help rescue
both people and animals, and we have found a true hero
in this beautiful 28-year old man.
in fact, he could be the President of the United States,
love to all of you, my friends.

new GIRL'S APPAREL COLLECTION

I don't often talk about cooking on my blog,
even though I love to cook
and give dinner parties.
but, the actual fact is that I live alone now and don't have a big
entertain-at-home agenda going on.
however, that doesn't mean I'm not concerned about
& EATING RIGHT.
in keeping with these thoughts I ran across a
LONG LONG ARTICLE
about EATING RIGHT on GRUB STREET
& put it aside until you have time to read it as it's really interesting.
Also, a new, highly anticipated book
written by the American Mother/Daughter team
who re-located to France
you can read about it on Amazon HERE
& in anticipation of my Amalfi Coast holiday I began a new regime for weight loss.
which means no dairy products, yes even cheese.
my new favorite thing is ZUCCHINI PASTA
I actually enjoy this dish and it has ZERO CALORIES.
I put fresh cherry tomatoes, green onions, the best olive oil,
and toasted pine nuts, parsley or any green leafy veggie.
just saute it all, takes about 6 minutes.
and NO WHITE FOOD
it's working, I'm down about 10 pounds in a month
without doing anything else.
let me know what you think, please.
always super interested in hearing from each one of you.
