I enjoy Puerto Rico for its beauty, great weather and easy access. I also love shopping in Old San Juan. The colorful buildings and blue cobblestone streets are a sight to behold.
On a recent trip I stopped into a hat shop and was fascinated by all of the choices. The hats were all made by hand and took anywhere from three to thirty days to make. I decided on a natural colored woven hat which they sized perfectly to my head. I then got to select the ribbon for the crown which they also applied by hand to complete my custom hat. It was perfect to keep me shielded from the glowing Puerto Rican ... Continue Reading

One of my favorite indulgences is Guacamole! I’ve loved it for as long as I can remember. If you’ve never made homemade Guacamole, you don’t know what you’re missing. It is so easy to make and I have the recipe to prove it! : )
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
2 tablespoons diced red onions
2 tablespoons diced tomatoes
1 tablespoon cilantro
1 teaspoon salt
Halve the avocados and score (cut diced) in the husk. Scoop the avocado from the husk into a bowl. Squeeze lime juice over avocado. Add all ingredi... Continue Reading

Nothing recharges the batteries like a relaxing vacation. Getting away to someplace beautiful, calming and restorative can do wonders for your spirit. My recent trip to St. Lucia was just that -- a much needed “time out”. The beautiful scenery, friendly people, and laid-back atmosphere was the perfect way to unplug and unwind.
Here is a photo diary from my week of leisure...

Kate, our resident chatter for AM Style, had the day off last Saturday. Read her blog below to learn how she helped others and had fun while doing so:
"Last Last Saturday I had the day off to participate in a charity dancing event called, "Dancing for Our Future Stars". It's similar to the real "Dancing With The Stars" but with local dancers and professional coaches.
I was lucky for the opportunity to be a "celeb" representing QVC and dance the Tango for nearly 1,000 people at the Crystal Tea Room in Philadelphia, PA. We danced to gain votes which equaled donations. The mone... Continue Reading

I am often asked for my "special" Deviled Eggs recipe. And since I know a lot of people like to serve them at Easter, I thought now would be a good time to share my recipe with you.

1 tablespoon dijon mustard
3 slices cooked crispy bacon, crumbled (not bacon bits)
Hard boil the eggs. Shell and cut lengthwise. Place whites on a plate and yolks in a mixing bowl. Add mayonnaise and dijon mustard to egg yolks. Mix well with a fork. For extra creamy filling, add more mayonnaise and use an electric hand mixer. Fill hardboil... Continue Reading

I belong to an organization of women who volunteer their time and talents for charitable efforts. Each year we hold an annual luncheon to raise scholarship funds for deserving college-bound students.
The event is called “Hattitude for Education”. It’s an afternoon of fun culminating with an exciting auction of incredible hats. As the “auctioneer”, I like to wear a really big colorful hat along the lines of the Kentucky Derby.
This year’s “Hattitude” was great fun, and we raised a lot of money for deserving kids. I say, “Hat’s ... Continue Reading

I’ve been to at least three potluck parties in the last two months. Potlucks are fun, and deciding what to bring can be just as fun.
Everyone has their own idea about what makes a good potluck -- just like everyone has their favorite go-to potluck dish. I was talking with some of my friends about good “potluck protocol”, so I decided to put together a list. Feel free to chime in with your thoughts or additions.
By the way, my favorite potluck dish to take is quiche. It’s easy to make, it can be served hot or at room temperature, and it doesn’t require a lot of... Continue Reading

I attended a fundraiser last weekend in support of breast cancer awareness and work toward a cure. The theme was “Passionate About Pink”. The afternoon included a delicious brunch, an incredible band, fun raffles, and a signature pink drink a.k.a cosmo. It’s always great to get out for a good cause.
Do you belong to a charity and/or help raise money for a cause? I firmly believe we can all help to make a difference ....... working together pays off.

With busy lives, it is sometimes hard to get together with friends as often as we’d like. But it’s important to make time -- which is exactly what a group of us try to do a few times a year.
As a group we’ve done things like belly-dance lessons, karaoke night, painting, and simple potluck dinners to bond and catch up. Our most recent gathering was a brunch themed “Inspirational Sharing”. Everyone shared their favorite inspirational message and with that, we ended up singing “Lift Every Voice And Sing”. It was a true celebration of friendship and siste... Continue Reading
