I GOT MY FREAK ON & GOT LASH EXTENSIONS. I GOTTA WORK IT! Here are before and afters. Thanks Missy Elliott for your song Freak On inspiration. As I left the salon in disbelief of how good it looked someone yelled "First time? It's addictive!" I was scared that I might look too extra and wanted the excuse that it was part of my costume so I had it done on Halloween. It took an hour and a half at the salon. Shedding occurred week two, but they still look great. With them I feel I need zero makeup which is the #1 reason to do it.  Magical best describes the effect. I don't look like a freak. Friends think...

What do grandma curtain vibes and a book about fitness have in common? Summer, of course! Here are my two favorite purchases from summer which ended today, the first official day of Autumn. ☑ The MAJORELLE collection Rosebud Romper in vintage floral from Revolve  The floral trend continues into Autumn but head to toe maxi even midi florals are not easy to pull off. The trick, according to the 100 (I kid you not) fashion youtube videos I watched, is to keep the print small, break it up with a belt, jacket or sweater, and boots. Easy right? Lol. We shall see. ☑ Fitness Junkie by Lucy Sykes and Jo Piazza This novel is about our obsessions with getting fit, available on Amazon - From the bestselling authors of The...

This feels like I'm wearing pajamas and requires zero styling because everything goes and it looks great with no jewelry. Do you have a black romper? Here are options if you don't: sleeveless ruffle, cold shoulder, off shoulder, short sleeve scalloped, more cute options than you could ever imagine. On me: sleeveless ruffle,  L.K.Bennett leather wedge, also nice are these tan flat sandals that remind me of the Hermès Oran Everlane, vintage family Nantucket basket bag. Moodsey is about sharing not selling and does not receive proceeds from purchase of these recommended brands....

As you know from several of my posts like Cosmetics Chemical Truth, I am a non toxic brand pioneer and champion, having started one 9 years ago. This makes me really picky as shown with my post about Gwyneth Paltrow's goop Juice Beauty being elitist in pricing. Now, there are many non toxic beauty product brands. Beautycounter products, for example, include none of the chemicals I avoid. They are priced lower than goop Juice Beauty, Tata Harper, Kjaer Weis; yet higher than W3ll People, Burt's Bees, Yes to Carrots, Shea Moisture, Dr. Bronner's, S.W.Basics, and similar to Jurlique, RMS, REN clean skincare, BITE beauty, ILIA makeup, Smith & Cult nail polish, Nonesuch, Makanai, Josie Maran, Honest Beauty....

MOOD: FRUSTRATED where did my gym mojo go?

CAUTION! A crime has been committed. BY me or TO me. Maybe both. At least that's how it feels. I am trying EVERYTHING to get my workout mojo back. I've stolen my teen's "beats" headphones and church was selfishly used Christmas eve, as I desperately seek any and all divine intervention. Here are AJR's "Weak" song lyrics that inspired this post. "Am I weak? And what's wrong with that. Boy oh boy I love you when I fall for that. My habits they call me like a grudge. But I give in so easily. And no thank you is how it should go. I should stay strong, but I'm weak and what's wrong with that boy oh...

It arrived today and I love how shiny this trench is! However, it's small and too cool for me. At least that's what I thought, until my husband told me I was wrong. Does anyone else buy clothes that are too big and too basic for comfort? I clearly am making this mistake. It's likely aging the way we look more than we realize. The trench is a high-shine polyurethane patent leather look coat pictured above on me. I don't like posting pictures of myself but seeing an unusual trend on someone who isn't a young perfect model is realistic and hopefully helpful. The Briggate trench is from the Marks & Spencer collaboration with Alexa Chung a popular British fashionista. There is...
