Seven Things I Love (5-31-2021)

1. This Design by Stephen Burrows – If you haven’t watched Halston yet on Netflix, DO! They rather thoroughly cover “The Battle of Versailles Fashion Show” which occurred on November 28, 1973. Publicly it was advertised as an event to fund raise to revamp the Versailles, which was in dire need of restoration, but itContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (5-31-2021)”

Seven Things I Love (5-10-2010)

1. This Little Girl Who Got To Meet Her Hero, Rey from Star Wars – This shows how important it is that we have more strong, female lead characters in films. I LOVE Rey. I wish we had role models like her when I was a kid. “Younger” Leia was okay but nothing like someContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (5-10-2010)”

Seven Things I Love (4-19-2021)

1. This Cover of VOGUE Magazine – The world was given Amanda Gorman in 1998 but so many of us were unaware of this gifted woman until January 20, 2020. Thank goodness President Biden chose her as his Inaugural Poet! Good job Vogue – keep going – let’s see scientists and artists and teachers andContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (4-19-2021)”

Seven Things I Love (3-15-2021)

1. This Modification to ‘Fearless Girl’ Showing her Breaking the Glass Ceiling – In celebration of International Women’s Day on March 8th State Street Global Advisors installed a broken glass ceiling around the now iconic statue. ‘Fearless Girl’ was installed on March 7, 2017 and was originally placed at the northern tip of Bowling GreenContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (3-15-2021)”

Seven Things I Love (2-22-2021)

1. This “Personal Library” – housed in his home, WOW! I wonder what his house looks (looked) like. Right after college I landed a job at a wonderful bookshop called Webster’s. It was originally like something out of a movie. (I say originally because it kept expanding and became less and less charming.) Anyway, oneContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (2-22-2021)”

Seven Things I Love (2-15-2021)

1. These Magnifying Monocles by LUKA – am I advertising that I’m getting old? Yep. Am I doing it in an incredibly cool and stylish way, damn straight. There are many more styles. They are a tad expensive but I can’t tell you the number of times I had to go find my magnifying glassContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (2-15-2021)”

Seven Things I Love (2-8-2021)

1. This Stonehenge Made Out of Ice (called “Icehenge”) – okay, so THIS is so AWESOME! And it turns out this was done by a friend of mine’s husband (along with a couple other guys.) How amazing is it! They didn’t do it this year because of COVID and I guess because it’s too coldContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (2-8-2021)”

Seven Things I Love (1-25-2021)

1. This Short Film – anyone who knows me will tell you I have two obsessions: the UK/Ireland and all things India. This manages to combine both, it’s a short film about an Indian guy who lives in the UK. I’m pretty sure it’s London but it’s possible it could be someplace like Manchester orContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (1-25-2021)”

Seven Things I Love: Inauguration Day (1/21/2021 – Special Edition)

I am going to guess I’ll be adding to this in the future but I want to get this posted this afternoon so I’m going to stop here… 1. This Celebration in Kamala Harris’ Ancestral Village – I believe I lived in India in my last life so this makes my heart swell. 2. ThisContinue reading “Seven Things I Love: Inauguration Day (1/21/2021 – Special Edition)”

Seven Things I Love (1-18-2021)

1. This Video of Annie Lennox Playing Beethoven’s ‘Moonlight Sonata’ – proving that even celebrities have to practice and worry about getting things “perfect.” 2. This (Supposed) Real Life Weather Report for Southerners – honestly, if all weather reporters did this I think we’d have a lot less accidents in the winter. 3. This TakeoverContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (1-18-2021)”
