There are countless beauty, fashion, dating and advice blogs out there. I read a number of them when I have the time. I enjoy reading about the latest fashion trends, beauty products and stories related to women, and some hard to broach subjects. I started a group and blog with a friend of mine and have a great time writing posts that are fun, helpful, health-related, and pertaining to my own or friends experiences. Some topics are heavier than others. It is such a fantastic outlet to write and share. I don’t claim to be the best writer on the net, but I do love to write from the heart and with a touch of humor. I hopefully make those who read my posts, relate, think, learn something new, and laugh along.

I have a few friends that will be joining in from time to time as guest bloggers… and I continue to evolve and expand into topics that touch or inspire me.

I hope you follow it and share your thoughts.

Ciao for now,
