Black to Bright – Your Summer Shopping List

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011

With summer just around the corner, women are veering away from their blacks and wearing their brights. Here are a few tips for transitioning your wardrobe to look fresh and colorful for summer.

As always, it’s less expensive to change your wardrobe with accessories. For summer, I love to use white as my foundation. Try pairing a white dress with a colorful necklace and pair of wedges. The look is fresh and by simply changing your accessories, you will have a whole new look. Have fun by playing around with any summer colorful shoes and accessories on white. You will be amazed by how many options you can come up with.

Here are the bare essentials for your summer wardrobe:

1. At least one white dress is essential. I suggest having one or two casual short dresses and a more dressy short dress for evening.
2. Two colorful necklace that can go with your whites or any other solid tops or dresses.
3. For your feet you will want a bold wedge shoe; a bright pair of sandals, and a knockout embellished, bright, or patterned heel.
4. Make sure you have a great bright summer bag. This is a must to mix in with your basics. You can even go with a print if you are sticking to a solid colored wardrobe.
5. A pair of white jeans looks great paired with a colorful camisole or top you already own. A skinny jean is the most versatile, as it can be hemmed ankle length and worn with flat sandals or heels.

For summer, less is always more. So simplify your wardrobe, add a pop of color, and go.

A Perfect Solution To Washing Your Bra

Hand washing delicates is now a thing of the past, the Berry Ball is the perfect solution for the girl on the go. Open the hinged ball, lay a bra in it, add the small porcupine like ball, and secure the closures. Berry Ball bends only in the very center of the bra, between the cups. This unique molded plastic ball has cut-outs to allow the water and soap to get in while perfectly maintaining the form of the bra. The small ball inside massages the delicates to get them ultra-clean. The Berry Balls are sized for a perfect fit. You can also put panties or hosiery in it as well.

Introductory Flying Lesson

Sunday, April 3rd, 2011

One of the most truly amazing experiences I have ever had was the introductory flying lesson through the Aircraft Owners & Pilots Association (AOPA) Let’s Go Flying Program.  For around $99.00, you get an introductory flying lesson that is truly memorable. You really do fly the plane! It’s a great gift for anytime or at the last minute.

The recipient will get a bit of classroom training on the basics of the plane and flying. Next, they will be taken out to go over the pre-flight inspection checklist. When that is completed, they will step in the plan for a tutorial on the instruments and controls. Fiunally, they will taxi, take-off, fly the plane, ascend, descend, turn a few times, and get the plane back ready for landing. The instructor completes the landing while you actively observe

The experience is truly phenomenal. My instructor was incredibly knowledgeable, a great teacher, and constantly checking to see if I had questions. He was able to keep it simple and always very calm. It was bliss from start to finish.

Giving this gift is incredibly easy, you simply visit www.letsgoflying.com and navigate to a flight school in your area where you can arrange for this introductory offer. It’s the perfect gift for the person who has everything, has always wanted to fly, or is just an adventurer.
