I’m overjoyed to have the next five days away from the 8 to 5, for the Thanksgiving holiday. I’m also to happy to share with you this feminine and fabulous, silk kimono from Lily Silk.
I’ve partnered with Lily Silk to highlight their high end “mulberry silk”, that is known for its luxury and comfort. And don’t be confused by the color or design, as we are deep into the fall months of the year! Note; it was 90 degrees today in Los Angeles! So, you can see that seasons really don’t matter to me! #iwearwhatiwant

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and holds so much significance for me. Not only did I work for a non-profit organization dedicated to the fight against cancer for over 24 years, but my dearest friend and sister Donna, succumbed to the disease at age 37. Although her diagnosis was over 19 years ago, I clearly remember getting that call from her after she discovered a large, hard lump in her breast. I told her, “you’re too young, it couldn’t be breast cancer.” I’ll never recover from the loss. But, I can honor her memory by getting the word out to others about the importance of taking care of your “girls”.
Since that time, so much has changed in the fight against breast cancer. Women are now surviving the disease at a higher rate and being more proactive about their breast self examinations, and annual mammograms.
So when I was invited to attend the Pink Saves Fashion show being hosted by the Citadel Outlets and the Susan G. Komen Foundation, I couldn’t say no!
What really made this show special was that instead of using regular models, breast cancer survivors and the angels who supported them during their fight, ripped the runway together.
The mistress of ceremonies for the evening was actress, Garcelle Beauvais. Guests were also serenaded during the finale by singer, Melissa Manchester. Each survivor was briefly interviewed by the show’s host, and each shared their years of survivorship, ranging from 1 to 17 years.
Ladies, don’t forget your monthly self-examinations and annual mammograms! It could mean your life. Thank you to the Citadel Outlets and the Susan G. Komen Foundation for inviting me to this inaugural event.

Until next time, love and light!

I recently partnered with Customized Girl, an apparel company that offers personalized fashions, including graphic t-shirts! What a great avenue to advertise your brand as an influencer.
Many times when I’ve ordered t-shirts online, either the material was too thin or the graphics left something to be desired! Customized Girl was spot on with a solid cotton blend (check) and fantastic looking graphics (check)! When you go online to pick your customized item, they have numerous graphics, fonts and types of apparel to choose from.
Would I recommend Customized Girl to my friends and blogger babes? The answer is, heck yes!
