Raise your hand if you love shopping! Now, raise your hand is you love swimsuit shopping! If you snatched your hand down faster than a turkey in November, you’re not alone. Swimsuit shopping can cause fear and dread in even the most confident women.
A few years back there was a study that found that women would rather walk on hot coals than wear a swimsuit. But swimsuit season doesn’t have to be an ordeal. There are a few simple things to keep in mind. Play up your assets -- draw attention to the body parts that you like, and divert attention from the ones that y... Continue Reading

I was very deliberate when I put my outfit together for lunch with girlfriends this week. I knew I wanted to wear a necklace I got at "Send The Trend".
Like most of us, I understand the power of accessories. They communicate so much more than our personal style. They can define an occasion -- casual vs. dressy. They can create a mood -- pearls for “classic”, studded leather for “rock and roll”. Accessories can capture a trend, convey a level of status, evoke an era, and transform and outfit into a “look”. What’s a “look”? A “look&r... Continue Reading

I didn’t know there was a name for it at the time, but in the early 90s, I worked with a “stylist”. Someone whose job it was to choose the clothes I would wear -- “put me together” so-to-speak, to make me look my best.
I had been selected for a make-over for a local television show, and that meant, make-up, a new hair-do, and an outfit selected for me by a “style professional”. I remember enjoying the process tremendously. The clothes were fancier and of better quality than I was used to wearing. It was the era of the “power suit”, and if ... Continue Reading

So I needed a way to try out the new Starbucks Verismo coffee machine...
It’s coming up as a Today’s Special Value and they sent me a sample to see how I liked it. Now, it’s no secret I’m not a coffee drinker. I’ll have an occasional cup every once in a blue moon, but I’m no connoisseur. I needed the opinion of coffee drinkers -- and to be specific, Starbucks coffee drinkers.
So, I decided to set it up and use it for a club meeting at my house.
I belong to a women’s civic and social organization and our local chapter holds... Continue Reading

Tracy Turnblad! You know the name if you’re a fan of musical theater, movie musicals, or campy 80's films. Tracy is the lead character in “Hairspray”.
Being known for a heavy-duty hairspray helmet hair-do is fine for a 60's era fictional character, but in “real life 2013” -- undetectable hairspray is a must.
I was given Alterna Hairspray to try this week. I had never used it before. I had the can in my hand walking through the Host Lounge when Pat James-Dementri saw me and said, “I LOVE Alterna hair products”. We chatted for a bit and then I continue... Continue Reading

QVC is a 24-hour-a-day operation. Like hospitals, hotels, production plants, police and fire departments, and some restaurants, someone is always up and working. And when it comes to coffee, a cup should be just as flavorful and delicious for those working late-late nights as it is for those who are here during the day. Which is why the coffee maker set-up for QVC hosts and guests is a Keurig.
Long before we began offering Kuerig home-use coffee makers on air, we had a Keurig professional coffee system in the studio. It made perfect sense. With people wanting coffee all day and night, we ne... Continue Reading

Monday is my birthday. The fun thing about a birthday is that it’s a day that is uniquely yours -- the one day out of the year that is special because of you.
One of my favorite things about a birthday is Birthday Cake! It’s my belief that no birthday should go without some sort of birthday cake. It’s a delicious symbol of the special day and a treat to celebrate another year.
So I’m trying to decide what kind of cake I would like this year. I really love carrot cake, but I had that last year, so I thought I’d change it up. I’m a big fan of chocolate cake,... Continue Reading

There are certain cultural occasions which get people talking everywhere about the same thing. Oscar night is one of those occasions. This week, all eyes are on Hollywood, and the big movie awards show.
Las Vegas is laying odds on which films and actors will win; style experts are discussing who will be wearing what; restaurants are featuring movie-themed menus with dishes based on the best picture nominees, and lots of people are rushing to theaters to see the contenders on the big screen before it’s too late.
All this talk about movies got me thinking -- who would play “the lad... Continue Reading

It’s been nearly 35 years since I last visited Disneyland. This week, I returned and experienced it all over again through the eyes of my 6-year-old nephew.
It was so much fun to see William laugh with delight as we rode the mad-mouse style roller coaster called Goofy’s Sky School. He was thrilled when our car won the race in Radiator Springs. And he was a brave little guy, holding on tightly as we rode the elevator up the Hollywood Tower Hotel, to be dropped from the “Tower of Terror”.
Mickey Mouse, Minnie, Goofy and the Gang are as delightful today as ... Continue Reading
