Barcelona...


A month ago I sent my husband an invite…. It instructed him to block out a week in Feb…. that week covered his birthday…… I told him he would need good walking shoes, evening shoes,  a dinner jacket, a couple sweaters, 2 dress shirts, 2 pairs of jeans and 3 t-shirts….. love care and total adventure would be provided……
I rented an apartment, I book the flights, I booked the yacht (for one day) and personal chef, I booked the restaurants and I booked the cars to take us from door too door….
The morning of the adventure I woke him up and said ‘Hi baby, you need to pack your bag now as your getting on a plane.... I took him to Barcelona for his birthday.

He has been to 82 countries and Spain many times… but never to Barcelona. I on the other hand have been there twice and I knew he would love it and I wanted to share this magical city with him and be his personal tour guide….

The result?.... we had an amazing time and he loved it so much he now wants a place there ( I will keep you posted!!)

Big Mac...


I love the versatility and the mystery of a Mac…. I love what it creates…..
worn with heels, sneakers or brogues it adds a little extra ‘something’….
Growing up in New York as far as I was concerned, only two types of people wore Mac’s…. science teacher’s and ‘flasher’s’!....  as I got older and my taste matured, I started to view it differently… .. not swayed by the iconic Burberry version… I always had a little something for it… but from afar…..  As my love for brogues grew… so it did for the Mac…. For me it is the perfect combination…  the brogues add an intelligence….. the mac?... well it keeps it ‘s cool .. a nonchalant mystery…. leaving room for discovery…. Never telling its own story….
Now a days when I see a Mac… I feel inquisitive … I pay closer attention to who is wearing it and of course how they are wearing it and then I wonder…… who is that person?....

Smiling...


So we have discussed the things that we don’t like……………… how about the things we do like?….

In no particular order……. Random things that make me smile….

(I omitted family… as that’s a given.)

The smell of Diptyque Baies candle…
When you smile at someone….. and they smile back…..
The sales assistant that calls when that item you have waited for comes in stock!!
The small child that has never set eyes on you before but looks at you like you are the most interesting thing in the world….
Anyone over the age of 80… they normally say the most inappropriate things….
The driver that gives you way to either drive or walk across the street…
The staff in my local coffee cafe that says in chorus ‘Hiiiii Q’, …. and instantly I feel like I'm in an episode of Cheers…
The grocery store attendant with the toothless smile….  (Its all gummy but its beautiful because he has no teeth but he’s still smiling!!!)
The guy on the corner holding a placard that reads ‘free hugs’
(ok, I haven’t seen him in a while…. maybe he got arrested…. who knows…. But I would like too think that despite the fact that he had deep close set eyes… his intentions were pure….????)
Street performers…..
The first random ‘good morning’
Anyone who openly embraces his or her imagination
Adults in a park on a swing
People wearing headphones that bop and nod their head to the beat…..
Dogs…. Any breed…. I love them
Hot water bottle, Echinacea tea and a good book….on a cold night… They all go so well together.
That perfect outfit that says ‘nailed it’………. I always stop and compliment the wearer…. It’s a beautiful thing!
Any act of selfless kindness
Ok.... your turn!.....

Pet Peeves...


Fashion is a language and is spoken differently from person to person……. but everyone knows that one person who… lets just say has an alternative language that you don’t understand……I am sure that somewhere in the universe there is someone that may appreciate it…. Its just not you…. but that is not the problem…………the problem is despite the fact that you have never said anything negative about their choice in clothing…. coupled with you never asking their opinion on what you should wear, why would you??.... you don't speak the same language right?...…..however this person is always giving everybody advice about their closet! telling them what they should or shouldn't wear.………On having that thought I started too think about other pet peeves....

People who don’t hold doors…. Which leads nicely into….

People you hold doors for … that don’t say thank you….

Able body people who park in disable spots…. You’re a bodybuilder getting out of a Mini… I see how that could be uncomfortable for you, however that is no excuse too park in a disable spot.

People who don’t wear deodorant… when your right guard turns left… please understand that with every move you make you are spreading funk…and not the musical kind...

 Primary color matchy matchy… (black, white and shades of grey are excused)….. red top, red shoes, red purse, red lips, red earrings, red nail polish…….. you get the gist….

People who butt into conversations with a negative input…
If you have nothing nice too say… say nothing at all…

People who spit in the street.. why????? …

People who blow their nose without a tissue!.... What the hell is that about????

Bad customer service…..no explanation needed… we have all experienced it…

People who jump the line…..

Dog owners who don’t pick up the poo!.... its rude and disgusting! That pet is part of your family and it is your responsibility to look after your family members… not mine or anybody else’s....

People who litter……. I remember driving once and the car in front of me threw a banana skin out of the window!... who are these people?????...

The man who refers too women as dudes….. just stop it.

The person who insist my name is Judy even though I have told him numerous times its Q……. they don’t even sound the same!... go figure!.. which leads to….

The people who insist on renaming me…. You would think just having a letter for a name would be easy right?... nope….  I have had many conversations like this….

Person: whats your name?
Me: Q
Person: Kill
Me (in my mind… ‘Kill??? Seriously???)… No, Q.
Person: Oh Jill
Me: No Q…  as in the letter…
Person: (in persons mind…. Q???..... seriously????)….Oh Quuueeeee
Me: Ok.


The blogger who blocks the sidewalk doing a shoot when all you want too do is cross the street and get on with your day!.... oh wait…… that’s me!.... erm,... ignore that one…

What are your pet peeves?......

Dress down.....


I like comfort as much as I like style…….Sometimes the heels take a back seat and sneakers  and sweats take precedence....
