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!!

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

In a “Chicago Minute” – The yummy adventures of TGFRL

My lipstick and I are home at last! (For a few weeks)

I missed you blog, I did, but somehow I got on … Continue reading My lipstick and I are home at last! (For a few weeks)

TGFRL is Back from vacation! Sort of…

So, I, the woman behind Thank God For Red Lipstick, am home. At least physically. And in all seriousness, I KNOW that my Afterword is really late in coming, even later if I admit that this isn’t really it, this is more of a “flashback” and a promise that you will see the #OOTD’s (Outfit of The Day) #WIA (What I Ate) and #beautifulviews that … Continue reading TGFRL is Back from vacation!

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!

LA Style, Outdoor Summer Party Outfit

In sunny California summer is in effect and so is the season of summer parties. Poolside, BBQ’s and hotel rooftops are abuzz with laughter, frosty cocktails and the clothes that say, “Hey, it’s hot!” and “this is NOT my work outfit!” There have been so many parties so far that I am finding the need to do some plotting and planning, pinning some “go-to” ideas … Continue reading LA Style, Outdoor Summer Party Outfit
