Purty Persimmon lips? Yes Please!!

This lipstick shocked me into 2014. The first new lipstick purchase of 2014 to wake up this life and style blogger and get her to get back to sharing with her TGFRL friends and fans. If you are judging my waking up to 2014 during the second week of February, it’s OK. Get in line. I’ve gotten texts from people waiting for a blog post … Continue reading Purty Persimmon lips?

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

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

So welcome to the chaos that is my … Continue reading Maui bound: TGFRL Vacation Essentials

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!!

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
