Live your life now!! From Tahiti, with Love

Thankfully this blog is Thank God For Red Lipstick, full of my various life and style musings and photos and not the New York Times, because as you probably have noticed I have been on another unplanned hiatus this month. However, I am here and I have news, and revelations, and pictures to share. But mostly a realization: Live your life now. You never know … Continue reading Live your life now!!

(Re)-Introducing my Retro Celebrity Scent: Ciara Perfume by Revlon

Admission time. My name is NOT TGFRL. But it IS Ciara and I thank the universe everyday that it IS Ciara and laughingly think about the fact that my parents ALMOST named me Cleopatra. Luckily for me, I was saved by the recommendation of super-thoughtful family friend who worked for Revlon and was designing a perfume package at the time for the soon to be launched … Continue reading (Re)-Introducing my Retro Celebrity Scent: Ciara Perfume by Revlon

Thank God for Red Lipstick: The Adventures of the Lipstick Loving Room Mom

Blogging, for me at least, is a chance to share a snapshot of my life and share a little bit about who I am, what I do and how I made it happen. Sometimes it is one of these, sometimes all three and sometimes, as in the last month or so, none of the above. I have been living life “offline” and the snapshots of … Continue reading Thank God for Red Lipstick: The Adventures of the Lipstick Loving Room Mom

Mr. TGFRL for the WIN: Celebrating love and red lips!

Seven years ago I woke up 3 in the morning, hopped in the car in a borrowed white sun dress, and semi-secretly snuck of to Las Vegas to make my “forever promises” with Mr. TGFRL in the drive-thru (YES, drive-thru) at the famed Little White Chapel. Of COURSE being the TGFRL’s  and prone to “going big” we had more traditional wedding a few months later. … Continue reading Mr. TGFRL for the WIN: Celebrating love and red lips!

The Royals, Cheese, Mani Pedi’s…The TGFRL Life

Sometimes a girl is craving cheesy grits sprinkled with pancetta, and let’s be honest, this girl eats this very thing in varying combinations a couple of times a month. I was late to the grit party as I always filed the mushy business under “the less delicious southern side” (cornmeal did not beat a biscuit or a mashed potato I’d proclaim) and that it was … Continue reading The Royals, Cheese, Mani Pedi’s…The TGFRL Life

Accidental Actress

Here I am! I realize that I took an uplanned hiatus from being a life and style guru and left my loyal TGFRL‘ers adrift without content for over a week. I have an explanation though and here it goes: I am many things from mommy, consultant, wellness guru, blogger and sometimes artist’s model…but among my list of things you will NOT find the word actress. … Continue reading Accidental Actress

Get That Style: TGFRL Gets A Panama Hat

So it’s almost summer and the sun, as the case it almost ALWAYS is in Southern California, is shining.  A few weeks ago, around the time I decided I needed to be glasses girl, I also decided that I needed to recreate the sort easy chic of one Nicole Richie, and get myself a fantastic summer hat. The picture that inspired it all was of … Continue reading Get That Style: TGFRL Gets A Panama Hat
