Face Forward

September 30th, 2013 (2 Comments)

    Saturday Reggie and I got to escape our valley abode and travel west to Santa Monica and join our friends at the 4th annual Face Forward Gala, the theme “A Gatsby Affair”.

Gigi’s Meanderings Around the Web #11

September 26th, 2013 (3 Comments)

This week zoomed by, it is all a blur. I spent yesterday cleaning out my garage, what an ordeal, how did I ever accumulate ┬áso much stuff? Why have I kept every vase from every floral arrangement I have received for the past 25 years? How many sets of holiday lights does one family need? […]

September 26th, 2013 (No Comments)

I love films especially independent films. Some where deep inside of me is a story waiting to be transformed for the big screen.

Love this Quote … You may get tired of this reoccurring theme in a lot of my posts, but it is so true, and once you embrace this concept you will see how life changing it can be. It does not have to be a different career, it could be something simple like going to […]

Weekend Observations… Mother of George

September 22nd, 2013 (4 Comments)

This past weekend was incredibly busy. Between working on my “business” and my typical tendency to cram to many things into a day–I am worn out! Part of my problem is that I love life and I try to live each day to the fullest, never wanting to miss out on anything. Sunday was my […]

Golden Gladiator #1 Rosetta

I love celebrating women who live life to the fullest, especially women who are of a certain age, that are embracing who they are at every decade never missing a beat. So I am thrilled to present to you my first “golden gladiator” Rosetta.   Rosetta and I met when our girls were in pre-school […]

At My Age…

September 19th, 2013 (2 Comments)

I’m going to be honest here. We live is a youth obsessed society, everywhere you look there are images of celebrities in the news, on the TV, FB etc., whether an update on Bey’s comings and goings or some Kardashian story, we are bombarded by these images. Our “norm” of what a person looks like […]
