Welcome to my site! I’m so excited to finally have a platform for sharing my thoughts, interests and passions and hope that you’ll join me for the ride. The idea of creating a blog has been marinating with me for a long time. Probably too long for those friends and family members who’ve been trying to get me to get this project off the ground. But as the saying goes, you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink. In my own defense, I must admit that the demands of home and family, as well as managing the daily grind that we call work, left me hesitant to add another thing to my already full plate. I’ll also admit that there was a little fear on my part to put myself out there for all to see.
I love reading fashion and lifestyle blogs from the younger set and have great admiration for these women who are doing really wonderful things and touching many lives with their sites. But as a 50+ fashionista, I’ve often felt that the voices of my generation were lacking in the blogosphere. Although many of us grown women of color may no longer rock crop tops or miniskirts, we still want to look and feel fabulous. We want to rock some of the latest trends and still look classy, chic and age appropriate. We also want to see other like-minded women who love life, feel great and look fabulous. I hope that I can provide some of that here. As my blog name indicates, I’m inspired by beauty in all of its forms so if the conversation veers in other directions, enjoy the detour. But whatever the discussion, I hope you’ll be inspired.
Peace and Blessings,
