Trends 2006

While shopping for Christmas gifts, I noticed the 2005 bright color palette still obvious in men’s fashion.
Who selected the overwhelmingly cheerful colors for 2005? I know next to no one who actually looks fabulous in vibrant orange or shocking pink! And for the love of God, who is buying jolting colorful clothing, especially for professional men?

Can you imagine? (Repeat after me in a whiny high pitched voice)
��œHere is a lovely black, orange and pink plaid tie for the office, honey. Enjoy! I���m sure you���ll receive loads of compliments!��?
Yeah! They���ll get some attention all right! I���m fairly certain that my own husband would not revel in that kind of attention.

2006 Spring Fashion color trends appear to be much more soft and cool. Be sure to check out the Pantone Fashion Color Report 2006.

Home interior color trends are also more subdued and calm this coming year. At least the folks at the Paint Color Institute recognize what I find nearly offensive ostentatious color trends, and call it “color fatigue” from 2005.

* Colorado is a hot travel destination! Hooray!

Be your own personal trendsetter.

It’s important to express yourself and to wear a style that you love (hopefully also colors that look good on you). Design your home interiors and exteriors to reflect your own personality (within reason in regard to exterior colors please).

A trend I am hopeful for is to see more companies emphasizing good customer service. I am much more likely to become a patron of a restaurant that offers good food, a welcoming atmosphere and excellent customer service. Same goes with any business I choose to deal with, as long as I have a choice.

Here is to good health, hard work, much play, love and happiness in life.
Happy New Year!

Happy Holidays!

We’re getting down to the wire here with planning, lists, Christmas shopping, gift wrapping and baking!

I love how baking makes the whole house warm and smell so good every holiday season!
My husband is the cook of the house, but I love to bake when it’s cool outside! This weekend I would like to try a couple of recipes from Paula Deen (who is an absolute pleasure to watch on the Food Network).

Enjoy some of her recipes!

Merry Christmas!

Morris is at it again…

I’ve posted an image of Morris sending a Holiday Greeting to Martin Lindeskog’s EGO blog.

Martin has added an Editor’s Comment with additional shopping ideas. I think Morris will probably also want to add some travel gear to his wish list – should Martin decide to gallivant across Europe again this year. 😉

I have a strong feeling my husband has already done a little Christmas shopping himself via iLOVEprodos.com. Can it be something that was on my Wish List?! 😀

In addition, I recommend visiting the Ayn Rand Bookstore online!
