Hello Friends and Happy 1st Day of the New Year 2013.

Last night I stayed up until 3:00 am watching The Twilight Zone Marathon so today slept in until noon. I love the first day of the year because it’s perfect for laying back and relaxing.  I purchased a Foot Bath from Walmart last week, it was half price and something that I really needed. To the warm water I added Lavender Epson Salt purchased from Dollar Tree and a few drops of aromatherapy oil which made it even more relaxing.

Instead of polishing my nails, I chose to use Sally Hansen Salon effects Polish Strips. The pattern is “Skinny Jeans” and was on clearance at Walgreens for $2.49. I have tried other brands but have found Salon Effects to be the easiest to install and lasts the longest.

Hello Friends, I hope you are enjoying the last Saturday of 2012

This afternoon it started to snow so it was a perfect day to take down the tree and remove decorations in preparation of having a clean house the first day of 2013.  Along with having a clean house, frying chicken wings, cooking collard greens and black eyed peas has been my New Years’ Eve tradition for many years.  Long gone are the days of hanging out at the clubs and popping Champagne bottles at midnight.  At midnight we are on our knees in prayer, then we eat and continue watching The Twilight Zone Marathon, my favorite episode is “Time Enough At Last” with Burgess Meredith.

Today I am wearing a handmade, fully lined, African mud cloth cape that my husband had made for me over 16 years ago.  I don’t wear it often but it hangs prominently in my coat closet and I’ll keep it forever.  It’s a one of a kind cape made by Nzinga Debrick, a friend of my husbands who owns Nzinga’s Cultural Connection a boutique in Wilmington.  The cape is trimmed in leather including the button hooks and the attached scarf matches the trim around the buttons and pockets.
