Why do I blog?

When I officially “launched” my business, it seemed, according to statistical research, the only way to put yourself out there is through social media. I didn’t even think of social media as a noun until the last year or so. So here’s the quick scoop. Years and years and years ago I graduated from collegeContinue reading “Why do I blog?”

The Fashion Police

Did you watch the red carpet at the Academy Awards  this past Sunday? It is my idea of the Super Bowl.  I love the pre-show better than the actual ceremony.
