Clutching Day and Night









I don't know about you but I always think of clutches as the evening bag. Well, apparently these are making daytime appearances everywhere and all times of day. Now,  I will tell you I have tried this fashion trend. But I did not enjoy it at all. I kept thinking I was going to not clutch my clutch (lol) and leave it on the counter somewhere. My fear is to misplace my life with the clutch. Some things just don't work for this  mama. And that my loves is the daytime clutch. Maybe when I am kid free but not for now. I have to trade cute and fabulous for functional. You just never know when you need that extra marker so your lil artist can whip up a masterpiece while you are waiting for some slow customer service personnel. So I will admire this trend from the sideline. Make this Tuesday AMAZING and Choose Happiness

Happy Monday ..... Shine On








Welcome back from what I hope was a FABULOUS weekend. I had  myself a merry little weekend filled with lots of relaxation. The fewer planned events I have the happier I find myself. HMMM? Had a fantastic birthday celebration for Mr. Happy. I think he enjoyed his special day. Had an impromptu dinner with some new friends that seem like old friends. So much laughter had by all. She and I are two peas in the pod !!!  I had planned on continuing my fall decorating project but did not.
It was such a GREAT weekend!! Jump start your week with some HAPPY and SHINE on! Shine bright light a diamond and Choose Happiness!

Wednesday is ALL about the GLAM













 Tom Ford has been all over the radio waves and magazines as of late. What do you think of these little lovelies. Do you like them? I like his more tailored look. But these capture his creative side. These lil numbers are glam and fantastic. He is responsible for bringing Gucci back to life.
Make today Beautiful and Choose Happiness.

Elevate Your Everyday Life ....EYEL






Happy Tuesday! Today, I am sharing how elevate my everyday life. Candles are my favorite way to take my ordinary day to extraordinary. How you may say? Candles create a nice mood. Last  Saturday , it was a rainy, dreary day out. I decided to light a candle and instantly my mood was transformed.Something about the glow and flicker of a candle that soothes my spirit. You don't have to wait for that dreary day... Find a scent that soothes and comforts your soul and light it up!!!!  Tomorrow another EYEL tip.    Elevate and Choose Happiness!!!

Friday's Favorite......HAPPY Spaces










It's Friday! We made it!  By Friday I just want to find a spot that is uncluttered and relax or as my teen would chillax ( made up teen word). Just want to unwind ! Any of the places above would suit me just fine. Cozy spaces make me happy especially this time of year! This mama bear is ready to get her hibernating on!!! Have a wonderful weekend filled with whatever brings you to your HAPPY space.

Take my temperature....I have FASHION FEVER!!!!!!!







I have a fever.... FASHION FEVER!!! I know it is the chill in the air that is making me want something out of EVERY fall catalog I receive in the mail. In addition, to all of the fashion shows taking place in New York, London and Paris.... oh my!  I enjoy the street fashion  at the shows just as much (maybe more) than the shows. It's just so FUN to see the Fabulous styles peeps are wearing. Do you follow the fashion shows? Okay, you know I am in LOVE with the PINK coats. May add that to my wish list. Cheers to a HAPPY Thursday!!

Designer Love ....Jenny Packham













I  had never heard of Jenny Packham until I saw Princess Kate wearing one of her beauties. The gown  quickly captured my attention. The femininity and glamour of her pieces make me yearn of days when every body dressed prettily. I love the way Ms. Packham dresses are so billowy ,flirty and romantic.
Heck even I like to trade in my tool belt for some glamour every NOW and then.  Though tomorrow calls for my gardening tools. So I will hang my gown in the back of the closet for now. Choose happy and a lil glamour this AWESOME Wednesday!
