I'm just now getting over jet lag, and definitely still thinking about my trip, so I thought I'd share a few more photos that I didn't put on Facebook.
As I said before, I learned a lot from this trip to Cambodia and Vietnam…about both the history and the people. As human beings, it seems natural to approach our world through an understanding based on comparison. So the more we learn about others, the more we learn about ourselves. It's one of the gifts of travel, or knowledge, however you obtain it.
Cambodia was a country of extreme te... Continue Reading

I'm so happy you enjoyed the photos! Here's the rest, as promised:
The weather is perfect and we took a cyclo ride around Hue. This is our guide in Vietnam, Lan. She does a great job and obviously does not lack for personality.
Today was nine hours on a motorbike. As my driver Hu said, "Now you see the real Vietnam." I would have to agree with him. There's something about not having a window in between you and the world. Of course, nine hours is a long time and strategic parts of my anatomy are numb, but I'm sure the feeling will come back eventually.
We went to see the pal... Continue Reading

Since so many of you aren't on Facebook, but asked to see my photos, here you are. More to come next week!
We left Hoi An this morning and drove north for five hours to Hue, (pronounced "hway"). This is the view from our drive. It's the highest mountain pass in Vietnam. Beautiful.
This is an example of the houses on stilts on the side of the river in Kompong Khleang.
It's been a busy day in Hoi An. We had lunch in a family restaurant and it was very good. The Vietnamese like to eat what's grown locally. It's brought in from the cou... Continue Reading

Chào bạn! Apparently that’s hello in Vietnamese. Who knew? I’m leaving for Vietnam and Cambodia in a few days so I’m brushing up on the basic greetings. I’ve got some work to do.
I’m so excited—I haven’t visited the Far East for years and I’ve actually never been to either of these countries. I’ve got LOTS to do before I leave (and no, I haven’t even thought about packing.) So, I wanted to log-on and write a quick goodbye and encourage you to stay in touch with me on Facebook…I’ll be posting pictures of... Continue Reading

I know it's a cliché, but I can't believe another year is gone. It went so fast! Although New Year's is a natural time to get a fresh start, a number of years ago, I quit making resolutions. I would try to make a resolution to eat better, work out more, be more organized, etc., and it would never last. So I figured, "why bother?" But, I think it may be because I was looking at the symptom and not the cause. Maybe I would be better off trying to do something about my attitude. So this year, instead of focusing on the "trees," I'm going to fo... Continue Reading

Were you a VERY good girl this year? Did Santa leave some Christmas money in your stocking? Yay! It's a nice little treat to have something to spend on yourself and be able to buy whatever you'd like. Being someone who likes to maximize my funds, I've been putting some thought into the best uses of that money, and thought this list might come in handy.
These are the bangles you live in. They go with everything, slip on and off, and are always sophisticated.
So many of us love our music and have it in our phones now. I love being able to put o... Continue Reading

It's crazy how fast the Christmas season is going! We're already down to the wire on getting gifts. But, we've got a lot of great ideas that you can still get in time for Christmas at no extra charge. Some restrictions apply, of course! But, here are a few guaranteed ones.
I love this bag. It's very much a status look, statement piece, and a fresh interpretation. If she loves handbags, she'll love this.
OK, this is just me inflicting my personal opinion on your shopping, but I love this serum, have used it for years, think it really works, so ... Continue Reading

There are always people on your holiday list who deserve something special. A gift they’re really going to enjoy. Something that’s going to make an impression. Something that’s "posh.” But, what is "posh?" To me, a posh gift is rich in its experience. It may be rich in texture, palette, or style, but there’s definitely something special about it. It doesn't always have to be expensive, yet it tells someone that you really put some thought into this gift. This Friday, December 7 at 10pm ET, I'm hosting a whole show, Posh Presents, dedicated to just that. ... Continue Reading

Ok, time to quit fooling around and really get some gift shopping done! Even if you aren't an early starter, the time has come. I'm sure there are a lot of people on your gift list this year and you can't spend a million dollars on each of them. So here's a list of gifts under $50. I thought that might help you get started.
It's pretty, it's festive, it makes any time a party, and it tastes so good! This cheesecake beats a bottle of wine any day in my book.
Ok, it's barely under the $50 mark, but this bracelet is so "wow!" It's bound to impress, if that'... Continue Reading

I think one of the most fun and/or most significant gifts you can give a girl of any age is a gift of beauty. It allows us to try that item or brand we've always wanted to play with, colors we've never worn, enjoy the splurge we might not make on ourselves, or truly change the way we feel about ourselves. But in any of these cases, it's the gift of feeling beautiful. And that's priceless.
One of my favorite things about my job is the opportunity to work with some of the most important brands, significant formulators, and some of the most fun people in&nbs... Continue Reading
