I’ve been going to Atlanta Rocks! Indoor Climbing Gym for years now, and while I still haven’t taken the Novice Climb class to be able to belay and climb more routes, I love dropping in for Quick Climbs on the auto-belays. Here’s how the process goes: Read/sign the waiver.  A friendly [...]

Instant Pick-Me-Up: Red Lips and Tips

IMHO, there is nothing, nothing* quite like a red lip and/or red nails to instantly elevate a look. Sweatshirts and a baseball cap suddenly look intentional and pulled together (rather than thrown on 2 seconds before dashing out the door). A few faves: Chanel “Dragon” OPI “Big Apple Red“ Nars “Dragon Girl” [...]

Book: Total Yoga

Now, yoga – or rather the way my body hums after doing yoga – is one of my 10 Random Joyful Things, but I didn’t always feel this way. I admit, I used to think of yoga as “easy” and “a nice way to stretch, but not really exercise.” After a [...]

Military Inspired (or a Band Jacket)

Military Inspired (or a Band Jacket)

I call this my Band Jacket. Not hip Rock Band Jacket, but more like Marching Band Jacket. It was a steal at under $30 (down from nearly $200 like this year’s version), and since I have a very real thing for blazers and jackets, I knew it was going to [...]
