Orange is the New Red: Orange and Olive fall outfit

Orange is hot. It’s the sun, it’s a traffic cone, it’s the color that I wear almost as much as red on my lips. When I spied this purse in bright red- orange with sizeable gold spikes from Deux Lux I had an instant hand bag crush. I had already styled three outfits in my head before I had gotten to the register and taken … Continue reading Orange is the New Red: Orange and Olive fall outfit

(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

Maui bound: TGFRL Vacation Essentials

This Girl Needs A Beach (with a very big umbrella of course.) My mind is scattered, I can’t focus on writing, projects, workouts, mommy to do-lists, laundry or what I’m eating for dinner. I have vacation-itis and though writing for my beloved TGFRL’ers is something I enjoy a lot, I need to pull it together and pack. So welcome to the chaos that is my … Continue reading Maui bound: TGFRL Vacation Essentials

Happy National Lipstick Day from TGFRL!

After a too much fun-filled weekend (that’s a thing – I am learning) I have found myself a little under the weather. However, I realized that I could not let this whole  Monday go by without wishing you all a Happy Lipstick Day! Instead of my usual photo I have posted a picture of a piece I modeled for years ago for artist Margot Lovinger … Continue reading Happy National Lipstick Day from TGFRL!

Thank God for Red Lipstick – New Lip Crush from Mirenesse!!

Lipstick is my art form. Ok, that sounds dramatic. Wait, I am totally dramatic. At 4 I earned the nickname Sarah Bernhardt after the 1870’s French stage actress who was referred to as “The Divine Sarah.” Apparently even back then, when I would wrap myself in glittery fabric (my gowns) and make crazy demands all while nearly fainting with full dramatic flair when things were … Continue reading Thank God for Red Lipstick – New Lip Crush from Mirenesse!!

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
