Her Point Of View: Karen Ruimy

Her Point Of View: Karen Ruimy

Karen is extraordinary.

Spiritual teacher, writer, dancer and above all a creator.

She is one of those women you meet and fall immediately in simpatico with. Have you met before? Did you know each other in a past life? How is it that she is a kindred spirit so quickly and on first meeting? 

She just is.

Leopard Print: Never Change Your Spots

Leopard Print: Never Change Your Spots

Many consider leopard prints a neutral.

I would have to agree.


It is an ageless print that works not only in the fashion arena but also in the home interior.

A dab of leopard print in any decor is a winner and a touch of the animal print in our wardrobe can transform the simple into the fabulous.





My leopard pieces need an update and pronto.

Pia Gronning, is another beautiful face.

I am immediately drawn to her style and ageless beauty.

Whenever I feel shaky about the length of my hair and thoughts of growing it even longer, I look at other women of mature age age with the same hair goals for encouragement.

Isabel Marant: Show And Tell In Paris


Isabel Marant’s runway show in Paris grabbed my attention.

Lately I have been seeing more and more possibility in her collections; for the more mature in me.

The Perfect Bath Time

The Perfect Bath Time

It’s about now I’m looking for the relaxation and tranquility of the bath.

Although a day spent in the cold Christmas air leaves us feeling festive, it can be damaging for our skin in ways that even the best moisturiser cannot fix.

In Europe, the winter chill is well underway and there is no better remedy than sinking into a hot and delicious bath.

The “What She Wants” Gift Guide #2

The “What She Wants” Gift Guide #2

What she wants when she can have anything she wants.

As you know that’s the question I am asking when making gift suggestions.

My “inner” rule has always been two fold when it comes to gift giving.

I ask myself what would “they” really, really love and would I be excited to receive such a gift.
I reason if the answer to those questions is a resounding YES, then there lies the solution.
