A new year always represents a fresh start, but none more so than 2021. 2020 has been such a struggle for us all that everyone seems thrilled to have a chance to start again soon! Traditionally people start a new exercise routine in January but some of us have been keeping ourselves sane with exercise this entire year. I’m one of them, which has given me lots of opportunities to explore the curvy sports bra market and really test what is out there.… ...Read more
Giving is the new taking. Each day that passes brings stories of people and companies helping those in need. I do not know what it’s like to lose someone to this pandemic nor do I know someone who has lost their home, so I am reminded each day just how fortunate I am. It’s safe to say many of us who have weathered this madness relatively unscathed, are grateful, very grateful. My hope is that most of us have found our own ways to give back, however small the gesture or the pledge.… ...Read more
Celebrating the holidays may look a little different for some of us this year, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t enjoy the season. Parfait Lingerie’s latest photo shoot channels that festive mood perfectly, featuring their best-selling signature bras in tuxedo black and gorgeous reds.

The Fall/ Holiday images showcased here are seen through the lens of artist Sabine Marcellis.… ...Read more
I was recently introduced to theLejaby Inspire collection, Maison Lejaby’s new brand initiative that launched this fall in Europe. English speaker that I am, I assumed, especially after viewing the product, that the label meant Inspire, as in to influence, arouse, affect. But I was wrong. In French, the word inspire means breathe.
It makes a lot of sense. The entire collection, coming to America for Spring 2021, is meant to capture the pulse of a modern woman’s life. Lejaby Inspire is all about movement, spirituality, comfort, and wellbeing.… ...Read more
I’ve been wrestling with how to write today’s ‘Brief’ highlighting Natori’s Cheetah print. You would be surprised at how difficult it is to get a point across in under 300 words. Plus, I am not one to repeat myself and yet, just a little more than a year ago, I showcased Natori’s sleepwear safari in a post called “I Am Woman, Hear Me Roar”. I was focused on the environment; animal rights and the hard work women do to make their case heard.… ...Read more
