Grandma CHIC...

Grandma Chic is this style of dress. Where you wear an outfit that is neither tight or unbearably short, but with a mixture of patterns and well tailored. Now, I do love these looks because it is up to you how you want to mix the patterns and colors. I am all for individual style and hate to see someone walk out looking like the mannequin. However, I know not everyone has a fashion sense but everyone does know when they feel good in an article of clothing. Plus I had a stylish Grandma whom always had the best hair and lipstick color. Red lipstick is what every girl needs she would say, even on your worst day. WOW did she have style and class. Her best looks were casual and chic. So, take a pointer from Grandma Chic and be super neat and tailored.

Here are a list of ways in which you can accomplish this; Stay out the SUN, it is your worst enemy!! Drinks lots of water and I mean everyday try to get the most, think of it like this for every drink (coffee, soda etc...) drink 2x as much water.

Suze Orman says the American Dream for New Yorkers is different from the rest of the country -

Suze Orman says the American Dream for New Yorkers is different from the rest of the country -

Can also be applied to living in San Francisco. I am often tormented, less so these days since the economy tanked, by the reality that I will never be able to afford a home of my own (single woman.) However, I'm content with this lot in life of non home ownership. As long as I live in an apartment building that is clean, safe, and well maintained. Being close to all that city life can provide you is the key. I enjoy the opportunity that city dwelling affords me; walking to a local restaurant, running in Golden Gate Park (hello I never do this) or taking the MUNI to either the beach or to SOMA. The Theater, Symphony and the Opera are all here and one has to include the concerts and local events that happen regularly from The Oyster Festival to Opera at the Ballpark. I have it all in my city and love the fact that I can have it all. I love SF and I hope to grow old and savvy just like my city.

Happy World Water Day! This precious resource is so very sensitive and can be contaminated in such an easy way. We have to safeguard this resource through conservation and keep watchful eye on people, Business, Countries and Nations that continue to pollute our streams and rivers. We must also realize that there are some people who do not have access to clean water and suffer everyday, so contribute time or money to these wonderful causes:

Perks and more perks of SF City living...

Wine is the nectar of the Gods and one should enjoy all the benefits that they offer. So, as usual San Francisco will be hosting another wine event SF Vintners Market Spring Fling, held at Fort Mason on April 9 and 10. If you are anything like me you will enjoy this event. I am a lover of red wine in all its forms from Malbec to Pinot Noir. A tip and I am one for giving tips...always drink what you open and if that is the whole bottle, bottoms up.
