Unresolved

So here we are, once again on the threshold of a new year.   How many times in the next 24 hours will you say or think: Where did the time go? So I won’t bother to repeat it here.  (But where did it go?) Do you still consider making New Year’s resolutions? If you don’t

Eat My Face

Last evening, while engaging in the usual pre-sleep beauty ritual, I dipped my fingers into the jar of night face moisturizer only to discover that I was about to use the last dollop.  While this is not quite as tragic as being unable to zip the cocktail dress you were planning to wear to the

I have a confession to make.  When I take you into my confidence, I know I risk dropping several points in your estimation of me.  You may no longer regard me as one of the “cool” people.  (Is it still cool to be regarded as a “cool” person?) But I like to believe that the

Daughter of a Beach (Hater)

The inevitable has happened.  The insidious process has reached its  conclusion.  The final step has been taken, and the journey is over.  I can deny it no longer.   I have become my mother! Despite our self-righteous cries as young girls that we will never be like her, one day we look in the mirror, and
