Today is National Leg Wear Day and it made me wonder how many of you ladies out there take advantage of this soon to be forgotten fashion accessory? Which type do you like to wear?

LNNL EP#021 Happy National I Love My Feet Day!

Today is National I Love My Feet Day! Do you pamper your tootsies? If you're anything like me, you love a great pair of shoes, am I right? Ladies out there, we tend to squeeze our feet into shoes that don't fit us correctly. Are too tight around the toes or just don't fit well. Since today is in honor of our tootsies, I thought I would give a quick little homage to them. I don't think we give our poor little toes enough justice. We take them for granted. How often do you get a pedicure?...

LNNL EP#19 It's In His Kiss -- Or -- Is It in Yours?

I just loved the movie Mermaids with Cher and Wynona Ryder. There was a scene when Wynona's character was asking Cher how would she know if this boy was "the one" and Cher bursts into song singing "The Shoop, Shoop Song (it's in his kiss)". well, I often wonder if it's in his kiss or is it in yours? One of the things I feel is often neglected are our lips. We worry about wrinkles around our eyes, sagging skin, etc., but do we worry about taking care of our pucker? You're probably...

LNNL EP#018 - Sisterly Love -Show Your Sister How Much You Love Her

This week was National Sister's Day. Do you have siblings? Are any of them sisters? Are you close with your sister(s) or is there some friction between you? I have two older sisters. One is 16 years older and the other 14 years older. When I was growing up, especially during my teenage years I definitely felt as though I had three mothers. They would say, "you can't do this", "don't do that" it was very constricting and that's probably one of the reasons why I rebelled. Now that I'm...

LNNL EP#017 Kick off Your Memorial Day Weekend - Don't Fry Day is Here

Today is National Don’t Fry Day. It is the day where we are to become more aware of learning ways we can protect our skin from the sun’s dangerous rays and the damage that it can wreak on our skin. My dad had skin cancer on his face, on his nose and shoulder to be exact. He loved to sit in the back yard on his days off in the summertime without a shirt and with his fair skin, he’d burn and turn red like a lobster, but that didn’t seem to deter him from doing it again the next day. I...

LNNL EP#011 - How Can You Get What You Want if You Don't Ask For It?

One of the hardest things for me growing up was to ask for what I wanted. Even if someone asked me what I wanted, I was often vague and a bit squeamish trying to articulate what it was that I wanted. Until, one day, as I was reading a book, (I don't recall which one it was) and it read "do you ask for what you want?". I thought about that question for some time and realized I truly didn't. As the time went on, I slowly began asking for what I wanted and was in awe of the great responses...
