ROADTRIP ESSENTIALS "in the car" : Summer Style Series


This Monday and the days that follow are going to be spent in preparation for my upcoming Summer tour -- New Mexico, Colorado, California here I come! As many of us are taking our final Summer road trips, I thought this week should be dedicated to road trips.

Because I grew up as show-business-kid and am now a show-business-lady I've spent much of my life on the road. And while it's tempting to begrudge the many hours spent in the car, why not make it easy to enjoy your beautiful vacation by making sure you have all the essentials? 


 SOME EXTRAS: 
+ YOUR ITINERARY (so you know what's next!)
+ A PEN AND NOTEBOOK (for creative thoughts and journaling)
+SOCKS (because your feet will get cold!)

What are you roadtrip "in the car" essentials?
Comment to tell me, because I'd love to know what they are!

  1. We took a road trip down to see my family and my sons brought beef jerkey. Not that I am ever suggesting you bring that....but something chewy to satiate one's appetite....and also never be afraid to talk to the strangers along the way....we have some great memories of our road trip.
    I brought my sketch pad.

    a sense of adventure. (and a copy of roadside attractions...some cool stuff in there)

    if i'm not flying solo, a travel companion who can read the roadmap and remind me it's ok to stop for pictures.

  3. @pve design - A sketch pad is a great idea! I'm not much of an artist, but maybe one of the ladies in my troupe is!

    @willem - I'm thinking those Starbucks cold brew coffee things may be essentials for this trip! Bringing a copy of roadside attractions is a marvelous idea! We certainly don't want to miss all the great history along the way!

{5 Ways to Add Old Hollywood Glamour to Your Home}

Five Ways to Add Old Hollywood Glamour To Your Home:
1. Mix metals - Whoever said metals shouldn't be mixed hasn't glimpsed at the magic that happens when a room is filled with gold and silver details accompanied by mirrors and crystal. The result is a beautifully opulent room!

2. A fur (or faux fur) throw - Tossed about on a chair or couch, this room accessory makes any snuggling instantly more glamorous.  (This luxury can also be in the form of a pillow or rug.)

3.  Color Pallette - The go-to-never-fail feminine color pallette tends to be camel, ivory, and soft pink. I'm a fan of also adding small bits of blue here and there (it adds depth.)

4. Art deco lines + Plush furniture - Balance out more comfy couches and chairs with sleek, art deco pieces like tables, bar carts, coffee tables, mirrors, etc.

5. Have a bar set with alcohol, crystal glasses, and an ice bucket - What ALWAYS happens in every hold Hollywood movie? A cock…

7 Spring Favs : Easy Must-Do's

What I love about spring is that it's flirtatious, it's peppy, and it's easy. It's energetic and exciting in a way that's rambunctious in a good way. In fact, I find myself wanting to be all of those things as well.  



Flirtatious, peppy, energetic, exciting, and rambunctious! 
It's May and before spring melds slowly into Summer, I always like to capture the bouncy moments of the season while I can! It's a time for peppy large arrangements of peonies (my absolute favorite spring flower) or bold arrangements with pops of brightly colored tulips! Before the summer heat creeps in, now is when I love to

1. Eat meals out on the porch
2. Take phone calls in the garden
3. Take walks immediately after spring rain has hit!
4. Change out my linens to bright colors and light textures
    - duvet cover
    - kitchen towels
    - table cloth


Because scent is a major part of spring I also love;
1. Big bouquets of fragrant flowers

2. Using really lovely floral cleaning…

Blossoming from Grief

In 2017 I lost my darling husband, Jason Musick, in a tragic accident, changing my life within seconds. It seems almost needless to say, but after such a tremendous, heart-shattering loss, many parts of my life were put on hold, this blog included.

Truth told I wasn't sure how to proceed with my blog; much of it was based on my life as it existed before his death. The parties we threw, the dinners we cooked, the house we made a home, the vintage lifestyle we lead, the music we enjoyed together. To me those were the products of our love, the promise that we would live a full life together saying "yes" always, especially to the magic life had to offer. Much of the entries, though they were intended to apply to anyone in a relationship or not, were none-the-less from my perspective which was lovingly based on my marriage and partnership that had been in the making for 12 years. How does one write about doing wifely things when one is no longer a wife? My identity as a wife…
