Blue Crash, Stylish Return!

A few weeks ago I was on my computer and it was just a typical evening catching up on emails and social media. When all of a sudden I get … THE FATAL BLUE SCREEN! My hard drive had crashed and I lost all of my files (backup? For now we will leave that “infamous” word out of this discussion). At that point I felt that sense of panic that Carrie Bradshaw felt during the episode in season 4, “My Motherboard, My Self”. Sex and the City fans may remember when her laptop crashes and she is unable to recover anything and was pretty distraught.  It does put a lot in perspective, but for me the best result from that unexpected experience was the beginning of my blog. Ever since then, I have my computer running again and learned that a negative experience turned into something very positive. “After all, computers crash, people…

Here comes the Sun! Sunglasses for him and her…

Now that Spring has arrived it’s time to go shopping for that one key item that has become a staple accessory for both men and women…Sunglasses! Don’t let the rainy and cloudy days discourage you, sunny days are ahead and the right pair of shades can give an outfit just the right finishing touch. Just remember to look for the style that suits the shape of your face. These days sunglasses come in so many shapes, colors and sizes, so have some fun with your choice. Frames are now more exciting and elaborate with designs, colors and different metal details and can be found at all price ranges. If you are not comfortable with patterns and trendy styles you can always stay with a classic and simple pair. For the ladies, it’s over sized cat eyes, John Lennon style, futuristic with frames that have patterns and color. (once again, think 70s) For the men, it’s…

April – Only Fools Rush In…

“Wise Men say only fools rush in but I cant help falling in love with you” Above are some of the lyrics from Elvis Presley’s 1961 hit song, “Can’t Help Falling in love with you.” A beautiful song that you may remember also in the Soundtrack for the movie “Fools Rush In”, starring Salma Hayek and Matthew Perry. I can’t help but note that April is an amazing month, with fresh beginnings, Spring season, bright Fashions and a very romantic month. It’s the beginning of the bridal season and why not highlight that a much anticipated “Royal Wedding” is upon us. The union of Kate Middleton and Prince William will be held on April 29th and is sure to capture all of our attention, as when Princess Diana and Prince Charles exchanged vows. It will be a historic moment that we will all discuss, remember and will be documented endlessly. So in…
