Bogie and Bacall…Together Again

Sitting at my desk today I was alerted by a text message (from one of the various news outlets that I subscribe to) of the sad news that the lovely Lauren Bacall passed away.

Insta-boudoir

I finally got with the times and upgraded from the BlackBerry to the iPhone 5. I held out for a really long time because I hated typing on screens and I use it for work a lot, which means that I need to be able to quickly type a professional email without spelling or grammatical …

Chanel Candles

Did you ever see my post from 2010 titled, Upcycling: Chanel Perfume Bottle to Oil Candle? If not, I highly suggest you check it out. I recently added these new photos, which are much more professional than the original photos (though they are still there, too). This is a super easy do-it-yourself project that will …

Pinterest Addiction

I once felt cross with my second grade teacher for telling my mother during a parent/teacher conference that I was a “daydreamer”. I didn’t care too much for her after her unsuccessful attempt in turning my “daydreaming” into a negative thing. Personally, I found daydreaming a delight. I could not understand the concept of not …

Mrs. Coretta Scott King

Since today is Martin Luther King Day, I thought it would be appropriate to step away from the usual Mademoiselle Monday post to feature, instead, a post on Mrs. Coretta Scott King. Certainly we could have devoted a “Mademoiselle Monday” to her, but since we all know that part of the greatness of her legacy …
