ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY FOR GIGI’S MEANDERINGS
Well it’s been 1 year since I started writing my blog. When I first started blogging I had no clue what I was doing and still don’t! When I set up my blog, I had no idea what I would be writing about, it has been a slow process and that’s okay. I don’t […]
Where does GIGI Work?
My work space… Working at home can be convenient, but it takes a lot of discipline to stay on task. I have to put myself on a schedule, so I don’t get distracted, which is easy to do at home, especially when there is always something to interrupt your flow. So for me, it is […]
FEAR. What are you afraid of?
FEAR, I’m not talking about fear of the rattlesnake I ran into a few days ago during a shoot, or fear when my husband had his stroke or open ocean water swimming, or skiing a black diamond run for the first time, I’m talking about fear that stops you from being successful, fear that keeps […]
I love three day weekends, especially quiet ones with no obligations. I feel as though the extra day off allows me to tackle a few projects that are in desperate need of a little TLC. Friday started off with a fabulous photo shoot with Lyric Jackson, a classmate of my son’s from elementary school. Lyric […]
Happy Memorial Day–Remembering the men and women who lost their lives while serving our country. Growing up, Memorial Day kicked off the summer season with a Barbecue. It also signified the first day “white” was wore again, after being retired the previous Labor Day, this was drilled into my head growing up. Well of course […]
YES. I am in the sixth decade of my life. I know, I’m 50 + years old, 53 to be exact, but I don’t “feel” like a “middle aged” person. I don’t think my friends and I are our mothers “50”, but then again perhaps our mothers felt the same way when they were “50” […]
THE SCENT OF A WOMAN…
As far back as I can remember I have always loved perfume, my first memory is a big bottle of Jean Nate that sat on a shelf on the back of the toilet. My older sister loved Chanel #5, which had a special place on her dresser. I would sneak and a dab a […]
SCANDAL KERRY WASHINGTON
My girl crush…Kerry Washington. Yes! I love Scandal. I love seeing an African-American woman in a leading role on prime time, I can’t remember the last time. Now that the finale has aired I thought I’d take a moment to meander through Kerry’s fabulous fashion moments. Although her style is different from mine, I love […]
This was an incredibly busy weekend, so many events, I really had to juggle. My Saturday started off at an graduation, my friend Rosetta finished law school. We met when our girls were in preschool and I recall back then she was interested in law. I was so excited and happy for her, being a […]
NOTES on FRIENDSHIPS and OTHER SITUATIONS
I used to think commonality was the key to a lasting friendship. I believed that some how “like” interests were a sort of permabond adhesive that nothing could dissolve. Granted many times similar interests are what attract us to another person but being able to reveal your true self with no judgement is really important […]
