Wearable Trends: Sheer For Day & Night

Trends today to can be over as fast as they appear. As a member of the over 30 set it can be a challenge to find a way to incorporate some of these trends into everyday life.

We’re officially into fall, which means winter is right around the corner.

BIGLAW: A Novel & A Giveaway

I have a few friends who have written books, but few who have written novels and even fewer who have written books with big buzz before they even publish! I met my friend Lindsay Cameron when our our then 2 year-old boys were going to pre-school (I use that term loosely as it was more like daycare for a few…

Gummy Vitamins = Wasted Calories?

I recognize I am probably not the only person who now chews their vitamins. In fact, I look forward to the orange gummy vitamin Cs I take every evening, because they taste yummy. Never mind my children’s dentist begged me to stop giving them to my children because gummies are to blame for many a cavity and my oldest already…

We Are Knitters: Making Knitting Easy

My dearly departed and beloved Grandma Kay taught me how to knit when I was a little girl. She could make anything (at least that is how I remember her) with a sewing machine and by knitting. I still have a sweater she knit for me over 30 years ago that I actually sometimes wear to this day. Throughout the…

Pro Tips To Finding Your Perfect Foundation Color

As much as I love makeup and am a huge fan of foundation I have to admit something… I have no idea how to find the perfect shade for my skin tone. When a brand offers 30 shades, I’m done. I usually have a (hopefully) professional at the makeup counter help me, praying they know what they are doing. Should…

The Best No-Show (And Comfortable) Panties To Wear Every Day

Nothing ages us more than wearing bunched up granny panties that show under our clothing. So I went on a search for the most comfortable, seamless or no-show panties I could find to wear every day. I already had many pairs that are very comfortable, but they give me enormous panty lines, even under heavy jeans! And we all know…

Esquire & Jefferson’s Manhattan: Barrel Finished Cocktail

I have vivid memories of my parents drinking Manhattans on the rocks on special occasions when I was a child. I would beg for the Maraschino cherry (of course) and thought the taste of the booze was disgusting. I still thought Manhattans were gross until a few years ago when my husband made one. I asked for a sip and…

There’s a new fitness class at Equinox that I’ve tried several times and now I’m hooked! I unwittingly took the class my first time. I showed up for cardio sculpt with one of my favorite instructors Julie Valenti. In her cheerful voice she asked the class, “Are you staying for Best Butt Ever?” We all kind of looked at each…

How To Dress 15 Years Younger: Choose Your Fall Shoes Wisely

My favorite part of fall fashion is shoe shopping! Recently I took a peek at Fall 2015 footwear. One glance and I was reminded how designers often offer variations on similar styles in their collections and, as the years go by, I am truly grateful! When I was younger I looked at some of the alternate styles as “more comfortable” or…

Carla Hall’s Petite Cookies #NomNom

Sometimes you really just want (or need) a taste of something sweet and delicious. There’s no guilt in a bite, right? Especially when it’s home baked and in flavors like Mexican Chocolate Chip, Almond Ginger Cherry Shortbread and Black Forest Crinkle (can you say YUM?) and from a Top Chef contestant! It’s true, one reality show I will happily admit…
