I think the hardest part of blogging is how solitary it is. I'm used to an office setting where I go to get a cup of coffee at the kitchen and bump into a coworker or two. If I'm stuck, I could bounce ideas off my boss or a teammate, and at any time get up and walk to a coworker's cubicle or office to say hi, snag a piece…

This was a short week for me as my family and I took a trip to the Big Apple from Friday until Tuesday afternoon.  We had absolutely no plans and that was so wonderful.  Each morning we ate a leisurely breakfast and thought about what we wanted to do, and we had perfect weather for it. I worked hard last week so I could get away with little work while…

Well, my skincare elimination diet worked, I have found the culprit for my allergic reaction and it's a serum I have been using for two months. The rest of the products from the line are just fine, it's just an ingredient in this serum. So glad to know so I can move forward! Last year, my mom moved from my childhood home to a townhouse. A major downsizing. She's still…

In Direct Sunlight

Lifestyle

Gosh I used to hate when Karl would take photos of me in direct sunlight. You could see every roll, and often the seams of my Spanx. Karl took this while I was waiting for my Uber to take me to the Washington Post to see Robin Givhan interview Derek Lam. I tried a few different convoluted outfits for this event, not sure exactly what to wear that wasn't too…

Last weekend I was in Rehoboth Beach and got a rash on my neck. I thought it was the hotel's feather pillow and got a non-feather one but it didn't go away. In fact, it got worse and today (Friday) It's from my bust up to my chin, on my cheeks, around my ears, and a bit on my scalp. My doc thinks it's an allergic reaction to my skincare…

Delaware Beach Trips: What I Packed, What I Wore

Lifestyle Summer Travel

Last month I spent almost a week in Lewes, Delaware with my three friends. We stayed in a house in downtown Lewes, walking distance to restaurants and shops, a short drive to the Lewes shore. This past weekend I went to Rehoboth Beach, Delaware with my sister, mom, and daughter for our annual beach getaway. For this trip, we stayed in a hotel just two blocks from the ocean. I…

This post was finished on Thursday because Friday morning I headed to Rehoboth Beach, Delaware with my mom, sister, and daughter for our annual girls' getaway weekend. While I'll have my phone with me, it's going to just be used as a camera. I'm ready for a bit of a technology break and the beach is the perfect time to do so. I realized last week that my wardrobeoxygen.com email…
