Fusion of eclectic styling…old, new, modern and antiqued…fused into one fabulous interior presentation.

Adding what I feel is the most mandatory aspect of all in living spaces and that is “HYAGE”, pronounced hoo-ga…which is the Danish phrase for LIVING SIMPLY. Which entails, creating an incredibly warm and welcoming living space.

Fashion comes and goes and labels are not the curator’s of STYLE.

Your personal style is your trademark!  Make it count!

Get Your Sexy On…

GYSO1

I feel that we as woman forget a very magical part of our femininity…and that is knowing and embracing our sexuality. We spend so much time striving, that we need to remember to embrace the soft and gentle parts of our personalities too.

Sexuality is a soft, non-sexual presence…which is the art of being a mystery.  I personally feel that this particular “art” should never be to obvious or overt.  In fact anything done in an obvious fashion is never appealing and that goes for the clothes that we wear and the personalities that we share to the world.

Finding that balance between strength and softness I think that’s what makes a woman unforgettable.

GYSO4

Sexuality is subtle, and here are some ways that you can enhance yours:

Perfume should be worn as trademark (lightly) it’s not about whatever is popular, so find your signature scent today.

Discovering your passion’s in life…and having a strong sense of independence and purpose.

Listening…yes listening…it’s about knowing how to make others feel good.

Being well groomed…which has nothing to do with a price tag.  Find what looks good on you, no matter your body type.

Don’t over do anything, if anything it’s really about down playing.  When you try to hard for attention it just appears obvious.

Laugh easy…people enjoy being around those who don’t take life so serious.

Have a sense of style…it’s not about being on trend.

It’s never about one upping the other person…but having a great sense of humor to play off each other…bantering back and forth can be incredibly sexy.

Most important aspect of all is…CONFIDENCE!

We all have elements about us that makes us unforgetable…learn how to harness them-it’s really very intoxicating.

Just Because…

Being a former store owner when I come across a fellow merchant that I think that is just doing it right…I need to take a moment for a little praise!

Melanie Marshall’s store is located in Midland, MI…which is located almost in the center of the state(perhaps that’s why the town is called Midland).

Either way…Melanie does it right!  This brick and mortar store is laid out beautifully, well displayed and offering a superior LIFESTYLE experience!

LOVING the concrete sink…well played…especially when needing a place to fill vases for her fabulous flower presentations.

hp3

Melanie…is also right on trend…with the new direction for floral’s…reflecting the “dutch still life styling”…or free form floral placement.

hp6

Melanie…double and triple up on those fabulous chenille balls…they sell like hot cakes!

So when in the area…stop in!  Or visit her blog for a long distance visual delight!

These are just a few of my favorites…you must try some of the above.  If you have your own personal favorite let me know…maybe I need to put that one on my list too!  Enjoy!

WineTJ

Of course I must include the infamous 2 BUCK CHUCK!  The story of how this wine was even created is hysterical.  But interestingly enough that a couple of the these wines were tested by some famous Semolie’s.  Unaware of the wine that they were tasting, selecting several of them and even rated the Chardonnay a 7.5 out of 10. Though the Savagnin Blanc did not fare so well that only received a 2.
