Fight Like a Girl

Lots to catch up on…  I know I’ve been MIA lately because of my organizing the Men’s Scotch Tasting event for tomorrow at the Saks Men’s Store.  As of this minute, we still don’t have anyone who will speak about the scotches/malts (!!!).  You would think that that portion of the event would have been accounted for in the beginning of the event planning process.  But it wasn’t due to miscommunication.  *SIGH*  Lesson learned.  This is AVIVA‘s second event (as many of you recall, the first was the Women’s Trend Event at Nordstrom).  In addition, I’ve also been hired as a consultant to help boost a jewelry store’s online presence and marketing campaigns (which will be lots of fun).  So, that, in a nutshell, has been what’s going on with me since the last post.

Change of topic.  A friend of mine called me last night and complained about her boyfriend.  You can read more about that on my dating advice column/blog.  Bottom line:  you can tell a lot about someone by his/her fighting/disagreement style.  It’s not if and/or when you fight, it’s how you fight that matters.  When I was dating my husband, one of the things that helped me fall in love with him was his fighting style.  He is the most generous man I have ever known.  You know the saying, “It’s more important to be happy than right?”  Well, he gets it.  And, as a woman, you can’t help but love someone who is generous to a fault.

In other news, I am trying to get followers not just on my fashion blog but also on my Facebook page.  Unlike many people I know, I try to use my page as a platform for causes that I think others should be aware of and/or take action on.  Of course, like many others, I also enjoy posting fun stuff (like cartoons, jokes, photos, etc.).  But I see my Facebook page primarily as a way to “get the word out” on certain issues and/or interesting insights.  So, if you are inclined to do so (and enjoy receiving updates on quirky news stories, human trafficking, Alzheimer’s [as well as other causes], and/or food news), please feel free to click on “Follow” on my Facebook page.
