Happiness, more or less

Daily outfit and style tip, wearing silk flower pattern shirtdress with yellow belt
Flowers in the garden

If my life had an anthem, it would be this song, “Lucky Man” by The Verve. I heard it for the first time in Maui, about twelve years ago. I had gone on vacation by myself and made a friend, Janusz. We had a blast and introduced each other to our favorite music. He got Air, Moon Safari. I got The Verve, Urban Hymns. Here’s an excerpt:

Happiness
More or less
It’s just a change in me
Something in my liberty
Oh, my, my
Happiness
Coming and going
I watch you look at me
Watch my fever growing
I know just where I am

But how many corners do I have to turn?
How many times do I have to learn
All the love I have is in my mind?

Well, I’m a lucky man
With fire in my hands

Style tip, Sally Hansen's Salon Effects real nail polish strip in pink camouflage
Pretty in pink

I don’t often post on this topic but I couldn’t resist sharing with you my latest find. There was a conversation on Twitter recently between @thecoveted, @gritandglamour and @beautifullyInv about Sally Hansen’s Salon Effects in Denim. I keep my nails very short for snowboarding during the winter. Given that it’s the end of the season they haven’t been looking their best. Eureka! A solution! Real nail polish strips, perfect for this busy modern woman. I dashed to my local Walgreen’s and picked up pink camo. I’ll report back on how long they lasted, but for now, I’m tickled pink with the results.

{ style tip: }

A confident colorful belt against a contrasting pattern defines the waistline with drama. It’s especially flattering on a shapeless shirtdress; defining and accenting curves, drawing the eye in to your beautiful, unique-to-you body. Enjoy it, love it, you’re the sole owner of it.
