The ring master

Hey friends,
Today I will talk about finding,loosing,winning,searching.
I 've lost a piece of jewelery twenty years a go and I already have given up finding it.
I am very good on loosing things and even worse : not keeping and worst not finding.
Sometimes I do realize that I am careless,reckless or just do not seem to care.
I do!!!
I am organized (or I think I am just because my closet is pristine).
Sometimes just because I love it so much I hide it from myself.
Books filled with important papers,endless boxes filled with more Little boxes filled with my beloved jewelery.
I love rings! They can be expensive or not they just symbolize so much to me, like my tattoos...
Anyway 2 weeks ago I had a dream about my precious old ring, long lost,long gone,long forgotten.
I decided to search,research and turn my life into a mission to find "the " ring.
Of course I've found my old passport,my favorite picture,my expired Amex, an old tiara...
The more looked the more frustrated I became.
My search brought me to a trip and evaluation of my life.
Why so many shoes and bags? Why so many long dresses? Why so much????
Do I really need it? What about my decision to live simply? What about my mantras?
After all said and done , when I was no longer looking or trying to keep I found "the" ring!
I forgot how beautiful, how rich and how important it is to me.
Every stone was there and is still shinning!
Since them is on my finger, I will not let go this time, I will not trust my memory or my Little boxes.
I remembered how and why I got it.
The "ring" is here to stay.
The "ring" is now officially back in my life.
Am I a nostalgic? So what?
Everything else still missing...
Love and nostalgia,

Sleeping Beauty...

Hi everyone!
Miss my blog...
Anyway, any who, anybody and everybody!
Let's talk about sleepwear!
YOU have to sleep pretty and beautiful.
No more: sweat pants, husbands/boyfriends ragged t -shirts
(promo tees is a sin), mu mus, any piece of garment with bleach stains on it hair up, bad breath.
You are not 18 anymore so forget pink with flowers, sponge bob pj's. Save the flannel when he goes way on a trip, I know and admit that nothing better than a old flannel worn pj's but again save for those days that you will be sleeping alone.
Make an effort to look great when in bed: brush your hair, your teeth and USE mouth wash, Use tinted lip balm.
Pick a special night and wear silk , always have a robe handy ( we get cold I know).
Anniversaries and Valentines day : Please enjoy it take your time and make the time.
Surprise him make him feel wanted , sex is great and healthy so lets get to work ladies.
Coupling is made out of trust so between four walls and your man everything goes.
If you sleep alone :do it for yourself, nothing makes me feel better than after a long bath, I treat myself with a glass of wine, my favorite perfume and my silk robes, just love it!
Bedding is important too and your bedroom should be your safe haven , invest in 2 sets of linens they should coordinate, a good down comforter (just don't co crazy with the colors) and you will be all set.
One day I will find my prince...
One day I will wear silk everyday...
One day I will celebrate Valentines day...
One day I will wear flannel pj's?

Have good night sleeping beauty!
