This Week’s Intimate Discovery: Airy Soft Panties With a Featherweight Fit

It is no secret that I am always searching for great fitting everyday basic panties.  Recently, I tried the hi-cut brief (834175) from the B-Smooth Collection by Wacoal and I am hooked.   Selling rapidly everywhere,  this underwear is destined to be an inventory classic.  Tagless and seamless, they literally disappear under  clothes, but it is the supple and soothing luxury nylon stretch fabric combined … Read More

Sunday was  Mother’s Day.  Regardless of how you define the relationship with your mother, it is an indelible bond, part of your DNA.  I loved my mother, fiercely, depended upon her support, and listened to most of her advice.

A Little Pop!


It is July 4, 2010 and I am lamenting my absence from my traditional  Independence Day venue:  Schroon Lake, NY in the Adirondack Mountains. In this small mountain town, the virtues of Americana, from the annual Main Street parade, to a lakeside picnic and fireworks exploding over a darkening sky remind us of the values of our heritage while serving up a visceral promise of hope and change.  I have witnessed a bevy of pyrotechnic … Read More

The Age Of Discovery

ellen 60 birthday cakeThis weekend was a transformational time in my life.  As the youngest of my 3 children graduated from college and I celebrated my 60th birthday, I feel energized by the possibilities before me.  I am excited about the potential challenges and the freedom to try new things.  I feel as if I can venture back to the pre-family days and revisit the youthful expectations that defined my aesthetic; but now, I do this with … Read More
