27 – We Invest in Our Minds

This week of our 52 Weeks of Chic we commit to investing in our minds. Einstein said “Once you stop learning you start dying” and while that sounds harsh it’s true.

Follow Me

Who are you following?  Who do you share your ideas, dreams, goals, deepest secrets, innermost thoughts and hurts with?  Who is influencing your beliefs, choices, actions, confidence, self worth, present and future?

What’s Your Signature Scent?

You know she’s in the room even before you see her because you smelled her fragrance, her signature scent that has become a part of her.  My mom’s signature scent is Estee Lauder Private Collection and my sister wore Calvin Klein’s Escape for years.
