fireworks 525 x 394 Unique New Years Eve Celebrations

Celebrating New Years on January 1st dates back to the times of Julius Caesar.  Sure, you can go out and party, but that’s not always for everyone. 

One great solution to that is First Night.  I happen to live in one of the towns where First Night is still going strong.  First Night is an arts-based event that celebrates the New Year without focusing on Alcohol.  In our town, it’s held downtown with each participating venue hosting a different band or event.  And they usually ring Midnight with a variety of fireworks.

While there are always tons of festivities that you can go to, you don’t always want to be out with the people that may be drunk or otherwise inebriated.  You can have fun at home, too!

people 525 x 394 Kicking Back with People Magazine

When you kick back and relax, how do you like to do it?  Me?  I like to escape. I also like to be informed.  Therefore, People Magazine is the perfect relaxation escape for me!  I like to either kick back on my bed and read the magazine, or in the warmer months, I’ll go outside and check it out.  Sometimes, I may even read it over a cup of coffee.

One of the things that I like about People Magazine is seeing the celebrity wedding photos.  While I always like to catch up on the latest celebrity news, what I really like is the little tidbits of who was seen where or what they were wearing.

Ever since I was a teen, I have shopped at Lane Bryant.  You see, I’ve always been curvy, plus sized, chubby, what have you.  And I‘m totally ok with it! 

 If you’re a curvy gal, you’re already aware that your shopping options are kind of limited.  You’ve got great features of your body, they’re just a little larger than what is deemed to be “normal.”  Chances are, you have breasts and hips and booty. 

Most stores have a large size or plus sized department, but they tend to carry really matronly items.  I’m not 70 years old wanting to wear leisure wear, nor do I want something that looks like a potato sack.  I want the same cute outfits and styles as the other departments, I just need it in a slightly larger size.

dearie 525 x 776 Dearie: An Interview with Bob Spitz

 

A couple weeks ago, I had the opportunity to interview several authors in conjunction with the Miami Book Fair.  The first in the series is Bob Spitz.  Bob Spitz is a renowned biographer, working with everyone from rock stars to presidents.  His most recent book is Dearie: The Remarkable Life of Julia Child. 

Q: What inspired you to write this book?

A: I met Julia Child in 1997 in Italy and recognized she was one of the few beloved Americans without a full-scale biography about her. I thought she deserved the royal treatment.
