Dressing Room Confessions: March Madness { Finding the perfect Mother of the Groom Dress}

The Final Four

I am having my own sort of “March Madness” this month similar to the annual college basketball tournament currently going on. (But no one is betting on me and I haven’t busted anyone’s bracket.)

The Fierce 50 Campaign: Two Peas in a Pod

before-and-after

Today is the 50th day of the year and a wonderful group of women over the age of 50 have joined together to create the Fierce 50 Campaign as a testimony to all  50ish women that we are embracing our journey as being middle age and age is just a number.

I would like to introduce to you my  Fierce 50 friend,  Stephanie Glover of @HauteGreyFoxContinue reading

I didn’t own a dog until I was 50ish and having Bruno in my life has enriched it more than he will ever know.
