Residential Development Will Replace Spotswood Golf Course

Interesting news! Colonial Williamsburg president Cliff Fleet has announced that the Spotswood par-3 golf course, part of the Golden Horseshoe Golf Club, will be developed into a residential neighborhood in close proximity to Merchants Square, the College of Williams & Mary and other downtown Williamsburg amenities. That will leave the Golden Horseshoe with two highly regarded 18-hole golf courses, the Green and the Gold. In an email to Golden Horseshoe members, Fleet said the nine-hole Spotswood course "has been underutilized for many years,” and that its land would be redeveloped “into a high-quality, walkable” neighborhood that will sit adjacent the Williamsburg Inn and the Golden Horseshoe club. No timeframe was announced for the project, which Fleet wrote is in the very early stages of planning. Fleet said Colonial Williamsburg believes “this initiative will significantly enhance Williamsburg as both a destination and a community.” Thoughts?

The Only 12 Fashion Tips You Need

With so much information available on the internet these days, it can be a little overwhelming. These twelve fashion tips though are the only ones you need. 

1. Buy only what you LOVE! Who hasn't gotten home with an item you kind of liked in the store and never wore it when you went out? Don't do it. It is a waste of time and resources. 

2. Parties and Weddings Should Not Be a Time to Try a New Look Out.Stick with what you know looks good on you. You do not want to look back at photos from the event and cringe at your fashion choice for the evening.

3. Run No More: Spray tights and pantyhose with a cheap hairspray to avoid holes and runs. It works best if you do this before you put them on.

4. Blot, Blot, Blot Stains: Do not rub. Do not scrub. Do not wipe. Spills are best dealt with by blotting. 

5. Thinking of Thrifting? Think again. Maybe you are over the cut but not over the fabric of an item. Why not think of using it to reupholster a chair cushion or make a new pillow?

6. Old Coat = New Coat: Tired of your old coat? Before dropping a large sum of money on a new one think of revamping it with brand new buttons. Ask a tailor to replace the old liner with a new fun fabric. 

7.Blush Break on Your Clothes? Use one of those pre-moistened makeup remover wipes to clean it up just fine!

8. Patent Leather Shoes Looking Blah? Windex with a rag will restore the shine right back to them.

9. Want Perfect Hair and Skin? Invest in a pretty silk pillowcase for flawless skin and smooth hair.

10. Jeans Smell but You Don't Want to Wash Them? Place in a freezer bag for two days and the odor is eliminated. Yes!

11. Short Legs: Nude pumps all day, everyday!

12. Not Sure Which Jeans to Purchase? The smaller size is the winner. They will stretch.
