Black and White with eShakti

Have you heard about  eShakti? Well if not, I am glad I reached you right before the Holidays then! You are going to be so excited to see their products and what you can do with them. 


If you are anything like me, the standard sizes many companies offer when it comes to fashion don't always work. Being 5'2, I can't stand when I try on a beautiful jacket and the sleeves are incredibly too long or when I want to wear a maxi dress and the length is five inches longer than my toes. 








With eShakti, you are in control with the design and the fit! They have beautiful dresses in sizes 0-36W you can customize. You have the ability to choose to work with their standard sizes or you can select custom size in which you enter your body measurements to include: Shoulder, Chest, Bust, Under Bust, Waist, Hip, Upper Arm and the Length of Your Arm! You are definitely covered with eShakti.  Any dress you can decide what sleeve type will best suit you for the occasion. 

  • Choose Your Sleeve: Bracelet, Elbow, Short, Three Quarter, Long Length or Cap Sleeves
  • Choose Your Dress Length: Mini, Above the Knee, Knee or Midcalf

 So What Are My Real Thoughts On This Dress? 

The quality is really great. The zipper slides up and down seamlessly which I consider top notch. Nothing kills a dress quicker than a zipper that stinks. The material is super soft and lined with a thick fabric. When I chose the size I was going to order, I went with the exact measurements my cloth tape measure told me and eShakti runs very true to size. 

With this dress I can run in it, dance in it and jump on the trampoline in it. My c/o Graphic Embroidery Retro Dress passes with flying colors. I can see me wearing this dress for a long while and that is what to me makes a great quality line of clothing. eShakti is a wonderful product with wonderful customer service and quick delivery. I would suggest them to anyone for excellent fit, selection of fashion choices and array of colors.

Little Bits of the Past

I didn't start my blog until my kids were so much older than so many blogs out there so I thought I might share some of my older shots. Hope you guys enjoy! 
Douglas and I at Debbie Gibson in Memphis. Backstage. 
A trip to Beth Page in Urbanna, Virginia. We have always been golf cart people. 

Douglas is around three and half here and Sage is months old. So sweet!
Sage at Christmas in Richmond visiting from Memphis.
One of my favorite shots of Douglas her 6th grade year. 

Ava was OBSESSED with DORA!!! Everything had to be Dora and if she saw anything in the store with Dora on it, she would scream if she didn't get it. Spoiled third child... 
Sage and Joe in Gatlinburg. She has always had the best hair. 




Visit Puerto Rico: Stay Casa Guayacan

There is something so special about Puerto Rico when flying from the mainland of the United States. For one is the cheapest island to fly to from the US. For two, you get to sink your toes into the sand and Caribbean islands that much faster because it is the closest United States island. Who's ready? With over 50% of the country covered in snow already this year, escaping the harsh winter seems to be something you need to go ahead and line up now!









Enjoy nature in the privacy of a beachfront estate surrounded by a natural sub-tropical forest and manicured grounds dotted with fruit trees and flowers. Slip into serene sleep while listening to the ocean surf.

Casa Guayacan: This unit features an open plan: kitchen, bathroom, dining and living area and a master bedroom area. Lay in your master suite where you can enjoy and feel the beautiful ocean view from bed. It also features a lounge-family area with a sofa bed and home library. Enjoy nature from your own outdoor shower and enjoy sunsets from your own deck and balcony. Perfect for nature walk's and bird watching. Great for swimming, snorkeling, sailing & diving. Your Host's Susie and Jacinto will assist you in anyway possible to make this the perfect vacation you deserve.......

Visit Hawksnest Bay Cottage: St. John

Winter is winding up in these parts of the USA so what does that mean for us? Looking for a warm hideaway! I am so excited to share this cottage with you. It is beachfront (which I absolutely adore), has a perfect blue and white kitchen for you to either cook in or watch someone else do it and it's on one of the most beautiful islands owned by the USA. 

Hawksnest Bay Cottage on St. John is located 2.5 miles from Cruz Bay inside the USVI National Park. Take the ferry over from St. Thomas and put your cold shoulders at ease.

Long Sleeve Black and Gold

As per our last post, Black and White Fall, we chose to spice it up a bit with Black and Gold. Long sleeve dresses are such a hit around this time of year.



You could add tights to this look or go with bare legs and throw a coat over this. Of course your legs and tootsies might be chilly but as women, don't we know we don't always dress for the weather.
