Powerful, Marvelous Woman. You Gotta Recognize.

The past week has been filled with inspiration and insight. As a result, these words spilled out of me and onto the page.

Powerful, Marvelous Woman. You Gotta Recognize.

Part One
You show up and people recognize
But you don’t
Eventually, they recognize that you don’t recognize
And they treat you like you treat you

Part Two
It’s a mirror
an opportunity to see
and to fix
“What’s wrong?”
but sometimes it’s easier
and certainly less painful
to blame

Part Three
If you stand in the mirror
long enough
You’ll eventually recognize
the Truth Is
You are a powerful, marvelous woman
and you were born
a Powerful, Marvelous girl

Have a fabulous week.

And if you recognize, galvanize 😉

Thrifting in Style with Debra

Thrifting is a way to reuse, reduce and recycle with style. Not only that, you get ideas on how to repurpose clothes you already own. Wear something backwards or combine items that no one else does and suddenly, you are a designer. Save a few bucks, support your local charities and let your creativity soar. Most importantly, have fun. I mean really, shouldn’t style and fashion be fun?

Bird in the Arch at Little Corona – Photo by Mike Zampelli

Bird in the Arch

This magical photo was taken at Little Corona beach in Corona Del Mar, California. As the sun sets, it casts a bright light on the water and sky and shimmers through this keyhole shape in the rocks. Look at the top of the arch. Do you see the bird?

On the 4th Monday of each month we will feature a different photo by Michael Zampelli.

Zandra Rhodes Style Advice: Personality and Jewelry Will Conquer Everything

Zandra Rhodes wears her pink wig everywhere and she never takes off her make-up. She believes “Personality and jewelry will conquer everything.” Her overall message is that age doesn’t have to steal your beauty or charm.

I would never attempt to walk in Zandra Rhodes’ shoes but I also don’t plan to be seen in public wearing mom jeans or XL t-shirts in an attempt to hide. The perfectionistic view of women that’s been created by media and contributed to a slew of diseases, inferiority complexes and plastic surgery payment plans is at least as wild…if not wilder than wearing a pink wig everyday or, (heaven forbid) going to bed with your make up on. Don’t you think?
