Hello Friends and Happy Last FriYay!
Bye-Bye February, pack up your snow gear and get to steppin, and don’t cha come back no more!
(well maybe same time next year, just keep those flurries at home)
By the time you read this, I’ll be enroute to the Sheraton Hotel in New Castle, Delaware deeply involved in the final preparations for tonight’s 2014 Goodwill Runway Show!
We have been preparing for this big event since last November and it has been both fun and exciting working with my models. Here are just a few pics of our shopping trips and rehearsals leading up to tonight’s show.
I wish you all could be there to see the actual Runway Show, but look out for the highlights next week!
Be Blessed – No Stress in 2014!
Hello Friends and Welcome to Slow Cooker Saturday!
Do you find yourself rushing through the work week in order to get to the weekends? If so, do you realize that you are just rushing your life away? I know because I’m guilty of doing it, so from now on, other than Mondays I’m going to slow down and enjoy all of the week days.
Do you live for the weekends?
I’m up early and out for the first dress rehearsal for Goodwill’s 2014 Runway Show. The models will get a chance to see and try on what we, the stylists has chosen for them to wear. I met with my models previously and they had an opportunity to try on their outfits in Goodwill fitting rooms. Today with some added accessories we will all get a chance to see what they will be wearing on the runway and I am anxious.
Friday’s Foodie Feature was preempted by the Weekend Wind-Down Party (#WWDParty) have you linked up, if not, please do and share a post with us.

Hello Friends and Happy Kwanzaa!
I trust you all had an enjoyable and peaceful Christmas and that you received everything you wanted.
Today is the first day of Kwanzaa and the first principle is Umoja or “Unity”. As you go about your day I ask that you spread a little kindness with a smile or a simple “how do you do”. This can make someone’s day brighter because we are all in this crazy mixed-up world together!
The last day of Kwanzaa is January 1st and if you have plans of going out for New Year’s Eve you’re probably in need of a new outfit.
As a stylist with the Goodwill 2014 Runway Show I’ve had the opportunity to pull together outfits for the various models. I’ve also pulled some dresses for the show that I think would be great for a New Year’s Eve event.
All of these dresses were under $20.00, most were only $5.00, so if you broke the bank at Christmas you can definitely save money for New Years.
Whether you’ll be dancing and prancing or just sitting and staring at others on the dance floor, you’ll look good doing it in a new dress or gown from Goodwill. Accessories such as new shoes, scarves, jewelry and handbags can also be found at your local Goodwill.
As you can see, several of these dresses and shoes are new with the tags still attached. There are definitely bargains to be found at Goodwill and you’ll be giving back and helping others in your community not only with your purchases but with your donations as well.
So what do you think, will it be a “Breakfast At Tiffany’s” or “Sex in the City” type of night?
Have a wonderful time and be safe!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
Hello Friends & Happy Hump Day Wednesday
If you read last week’s Thankful Thursday post, you’ll recall that I was asked to be a Stylist for Goodwill’s 2014 Runway Fashion Show. You all know how I feel about Goodwill Industries and how excited I get when presented with an opportunity to work with them.
Goodwill will always have a special place in my heart because of all that they do for people in the community and because they were there for my sister when she needed employment. I am so completely over the top with excitement to be helping out with this fantastic fundraising fashion event!
Thursday evening all of the Stylists were invited to the main Goodwill location on Lea Blvd for a meet and greet and to obtain our Stylist Shopper’s Pass and information packages. Last year I was invited to participate but wasn’t able to and was surprised to learn that Kim Krzanowski whom I had met at the Delaware Today Fashion Show, (Best Dressed Delaware Woman) was last year’s Head Stylist. This year (with a heavy heart) she will not be able to take on that role solo due to pending motherhood, but will hang in as long as she can before her due date.
Saturday morning we returned to Goodwill to meet our models and to talk about outfit selections as well as to make plans to shop with or for them in the coming weeks and months. This year the outfits will be selected based on these themes:
In addition to the Runway Show, there will be a Second-hand Chic Boutique. “Look fabulous for less when you shop for one of a kind, name brand items hand-picked by our stylists. Brands include Ann Taylor Loft, Coach, Marc Jacobs and more!”
The Goodwill Boutique will be open for shopping from 6 – 7 p.m. and at the conclusion of the show. If you want to to shop early you can upgrade to a VIP ticket and begin shopping 45 minutes before general admission begins.
If you would like to be a sponsor and/or purchase tickets, please go to
www.goodwillde.org/runway, proceeds to benefit a scholarship fund for Goodwill employees wishing to obtain their GED or an Associates Degree.
I’ll keep you posted once the shopping trips begin….this is going to be so much fun!
Have a fantablous day – Smooches!
