Magic Sleek: Is it worth it?

For most, summer means sun, beach, BBQ, and vacations.  For me, summer means FRIZZ!  I basically spend June – September looking frightful.  I need the absolute perfect weather conditions for me to have a good hair day.  The slightest moisture in the air causes a major problem.  I have tried Keratin, which does amazing things […]

Is Balayage for You?

When it comes to color on my hair, I usually get double process: color and highlights. But this time, after seeing some pics, I decided try balayage. One of my hair issues is that within 2 short weeks, my ugly grays start showing their true color (bastards). While balayage won’t keep the grays from rearing their ugly heads […]

Happy Hour On-the-Go!

Loving this wine tote with a pouring spout perfect for wine or your cocktail of choice for a beach day or a picnic! It discreetly holds a boxed wine (or cocktail) bag and is fully insulated. There’s enough room for cups, your wallet, and phone.  I only wish I’d discovered this earlier in the summer, but hey, […]

Get 10% Off At The Town Book Store

The Town Bookstore is one of the last two independent books stores in Union County. Did you know they have been in business for 83 years? As many of the store fronts downtown have been opening and closing their doors recently, I think it is important that we all try and support out local businesses. […]

Eggs Up Grill – Fuquay-Varina!

I was so happy when Eggs Up Grill opened last year on Main Street in Fuquay-Varina. Our family felt fairly relegated to fast food breakfast options whenever we had to run morning errands in what is now being called “The Quay”. The owners and staff at Eggs Up Grill will make you feel right at home […]


Recently I was asked to run to the Roosevelt Field Mall and be the walking “second opinion” on a girlfriend’s “must have” dress for a very special date.   After hitting the racks at Nordstrom and shuffling through dresses at Bloomingdales, it occurred to me that rather than squeezing ourselves into Spanx and the like, […]
