Time Traveling Hair Adventure

Recently I had the happy privilege of being a hair model for a period-hair class.
My dear friend and hair guru-mistress Addie Markowitz created over seven specific
hair creations over the course of one day and these are my favorites...

Almost Garbo
Channeling my inner Greta Garbo for this 30's interpretation.

Almost Rita Hayworth
Then a trip to the 40's for my inner Rita Hayworth.

Antoinette Redux - front
Next, a wind-blown Marie Antoinette...

Antoinette Redux - back
Almost ready for the masquerade.

Screaming the 70's
And my favorite... a wild 70's mane to wear to Studio 54.

Merci to Addie for a day of fun and hair adventures!!!

Until next time... Miss Absinthe

Raindrops on Roses and Whiskers on Puppies...

Surrounding oneself with simple pleasures is key to surviving the madness of everyday life.
Scent of Heaven
Nothing compares to the scent of an outdoor-grown rose.
Intoxicating and euphoria-inducing, they're a pure expression of nature's sensual delight.

Looking for ways to spark inspiration in my everyday life...
Light Stripes Dark Lucie

Experimenting with Lucie and Charlie and Hipstamatic.

I Love Lucie

At the end of November last year, a furry baby rascal was literally dropped into my life.

Voila Lucie!

As I was shopping at Healthy Spot for some healthy dog chow and snacks,
I spotted a cute pup, that reminded me of my Charlie, being held by
an employee in the doggy daycare and I mentioned how I had a dog at home
that looked similar... To which I heard a reply from another very nice employee...
She needs a home. Of course the moment she hands her to me I'm a goner.
Six hours later she was mine.


She is such a character and the complete opposite to Charlie...
Playful, fearless, curious, mischievous, willful and openly affectionate,
a devilish delight and the yang to Charlie's quiet and reserved yin.
Happily they get along great and she's livened and loosened him up a bit.
And she's teaching me patience... ah oui.

Until next time... Miss Absinthe
