Sweet Spring Style

I just love my job! Although it is one of those jobs that is difficult to explain in twenty words or less. Whenever my grandmother asks what it is I do, I am often at a loss for a credible explanation! But one of the quite-often-enjoyed-perks is the ability to work from home whenever my boss is out of town, which has been quite a lot lately. While she is off doing whatever it is that Chic Professional Execs do in Barbados, Fiji and Costa Rica, I get to sleep in late, take my laptop to the corner bistro, order a croissant and something hot and frothy and pretend that I am in a reality tv show! So when my boss told me she had to nip on over to Milan for a week I decided to take advantage of this sudden somewhat flexible schedule. This would be the perfect time to implement my new Spring into Spring plan. It actually started out as my Sprint into Spring plan (with swimsuit season just around the corner I felt it wise to add a bit of aerobic conditioning to my daily schedule), and I had the best of intentions, truly I did. I even awoke with the birds this morning (those specific aviary specimens that arise somewhere around 9:00 a.m.), donned my new exercise togs and headed out into the bonny bright sunshine for a little jog around the park. Spring, however, is a fickle creature and no sooner had I hit my stride (even sound more fit, no?) than the once-clear sky filled with ominous dark clouds, a light drizzle began (which soon became a drenching downpour) and I found myself soaked and shivering, dodging mud puddles and lightening bolts and taking cover in a smelly bus shelter till the worst had passed. Needless to say, I think my fitness frenzy will be on hiatus til summer has set in.

Anyhoo, I'm all cozy now, (took a cab home -- rain + suede = BAD; although cows are basically suede and they don't get all streaky and shrunken in the rain; but I digress) and after a nice hot soak in the tub I'm ready to revamp and revitalize my Spring into Spring plan. For the best of the best of everything Spring, grab a cup of something revitalizing and play along with me:

Spring Indulgences/Necessities

  • Sexy Platforms. Whether wood, cork or rope sole, platforms are the hottest of the hot spring footwear. Delicate strappy leather, sophisticated pump, ankle-tie espadrille or a sexy peep-toe. Practice walking in them a bit--one tends to underestimate the amount of sole beneath one's foot, which could end one up on one's rear end if one is not careful!
  • A long lacy skirt. An absolute must-have this season. A bit of sophistication, yet still flirty enough for Spring. Wear with a feminine top or lightweight sweater.
  • little white dress - the perfect combination of innocence and glamour will quickly become your go-to dress for spring.
  • Dressy cropped trousers. They will become a staple of your wardrobe for spring and summer! Can be dressed up or down with floaty tops or ribbed tanks. Also, rolled and/or cuffed denim or twill is perfect for spring. Paired with either a fun polo, or perhaps a girly blouse for a fetching fashion statement.
  • The perfect handbag. With so many style choices this season your options are wide open. Pay attention to details like handles, buckles and trim. Glamorous and elegant or trendy and casual, a great bag can add that final cachet to make an ensemble sing!

Spring Movies:

  • Beauty and the Beast. Live action with Emma Watson and Dan Stevens, Simply the most anticipated movie of the season!
  • Logan. Hugh Jackman (without his shirt!) 'Nuff said.
  • Wonder Woman. There is always a place for a strong woman!

DVD's to Watch Over and Over and Over While it Rains/Snows/Blows Outside:

  • Pride and Prejudice: The original A & E version with Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle is one of my all time favorite movies. Their performances are fabulous, the scenery is exquisite, and Alison Steadman's performance as Mrs. Bennett is just priceless! I have already worn out one complete set of DVD's so I'm thrilled to have an excuse to snap it up on blu-ray!
  • Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. If you haven't caught up on the antics of Lorelei and Rory since we last saw them this is definitely the time to do so! And for die-hard fans like me, binge watching the first seven seasons is also a must.
  • This is Us. By far the best show to hit network television since Downton Abbey! Lose yourselves in the lives of this amazing cast of characters as their paths cross and their life stories intertwine, from sharing the same birthday, to so much more than anyone would expect.

Just Because it's Spring:

NEW Advanced Ceramide Capsules

Elizabeth Arden Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum is exactly what you need for flawless skin.

As a leader in ceramide technology, Elizabeth Arden has been researching and learning more about ceramides and their role in the skin for 27 years. Research shows that while ceramides are critical to the stratum corneum, other lipids such as cholesterol and fatty acids play an important role as well, and all three together are essential to a healthy looking skin barrier. Based on this information, in the new Advanced Ceramide Capsules formula we adjusted the combination of these lipids, with new and elevated levels of skin-identical Ceramides, higher levels of Fatty Acids, and a new ingredient, Cholesterol, to further help support the stratum corneum. While the existing formula worked to help restore these essential lipids, new Advanced Ceramide Capsules deliver triple the anti-aging power to not only help replenish essential lipids, but also to help restore skin’s natural ability to renew and repair itself for a firmer look and overall healthy appearance.

 

As the first to introduce the single dose beauty capsule concept more than 25 years ago, the petite packaging is as equally groundbreaking as is the serum housed inside. Not only does the capsule portion a precise single dose, but it’s airtight to protect the integrity and potency of the formula without the use or need for preservatives. Moreover, the capsule material is vegetable based and 100% biodegradable.
