Never Too Early- to get a jump the season

By |October 26th, 2015|Building a Store, Gifts, Holidays, Philanthropy|

It’s already Christmas in my mind…building your inventory to prepare, ordering packaging to figure out what will be the hot sellers and projecting your needs. My family wants me to chill a bit…it’s not even Halloween…

Now that I realize how big we are as a gift store, bigger than I anticipated…we are getting ready. Thus the New Blog Today.

Say ‘YES’ To The Dress

By |March 10th, 2015|Career Development, Celebrations, Family, Fashion, Global, Holidays, Retail Stores, Travel, Women's Issues|

My favorite show for  Friday night relaxation is SAY YES TO THE DRESS on TLC.  Kleinfeld Bridal Shop in Manhattan/Chelsea is the focus of the show finding the perfect wedding dress for the bride. Randy, the manager is hilarious, and his staff is superb, professional and diplomatic, practicing finesse with family members to please.  Will the style be mermaid, ball gown, backless or strapless?  So many choices.

On our trip [...]

Holiday Inspiration or NOT

HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL

Love Tiffany’s facade on 58th and 5th in NYC.  Yellow Diamonds…their brand identity. The day began with my early morning walking route, from 65th down Madison, cross 5th to the Rockefeller tree and NBC…Bergdorf and Saks windows, Bloomingdales first floor, and Barney’s.  I needed to get my ‘fix’ of holiday inspiration.

Adrenaline is high walking on 47th St diamond district through Times Square to Penn Station. I [...]

Magnificence of Nature is Breathtaking at Amangiri Canyon Point, Utah

 

The Majestic West…appropriately experienced by us just before Thanksgiving. Kept me grounded, in awe, and  THANKFUL to have the FREEDOM to experience beauty with family and friends, and GRATEFUL  for these moments  and shared experiences.

To share this quote from our Thanksgiving table:

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.  It turns what we have into enough, and more.  It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, [...]

Shop Today-Gone Tomorrow

Decorating your house for Halloween could not have been more fun this year.  Walking the dogs, I had my camera at hand all week taking pictures in my neighborhood. You can tell that families were having fun making their house haunted and scary.

Friday night, Halloween, I called Halloween City, Halloween Spirit, and Halloween Express.  I wanted to know if markdowns would occur and if there might be a DAY [...]
