Winter Sunglasses & Why Wear Them

Hello Darlings, The other day as my mom and I were both in a car and spotted an individual with a questionable outfit, or as my mom would say too fashionable. We went into a discussion of fashion over function. Which got me thinking how far out of our comfort do we go for fashion? In essence every part of our outfit carries a function but in today’s world how much emphasis do we give aesthetic over function. In particular one story came into mind as I started to ponder this idea. On one autumn afternoon I was browsing the sunglasses…

Blue Mountain Spring Break

Hello Darlings, As the winter seems to have absolutely no mercy on the East coast, the only positive of all this snow is a longer ski season.

Just Go For It

Hello Darlings, My 2014 was filled with many lessons but the best one I’ve learned was how to just go for it! As women, we are famous for having keen instincts and analytic minds that can process too much at once. These two qualities are exactly what should permit us to be great at decision making however by nature we tend to be risks adverse. As a result in any decision that requires risk, we more often go for a safer choice even when the rewards are not as great. On a random Wednesday night over a cup of decaf…
