Space to Fill - Vol 3. Issue 5

Some of you know that for a long time, a LOOOOOOONG time, I was a stage actor. I loved it, and played the leading actor in shows like Barefoot in the Park, Hello Dolly, and many, many others. I also did a movie and several commercials, but I love to be on stage. When we moved here from Texas, however, the theatre scene wasn't easy to crack. They auditioned several months, (even a year) before a show even went into rehearsal, and I couldn't forge commitments to things that far in advance. Eventually, the whole idea of being on stage again just faded into the background, until recently.

On Monday, I auditioned for a part in the stage Musical of Legally Blonde. If you haven't had the opportunity to see it, MTV hosted a stage performance of the broadway show where they recorded the entire thing, and it's available on youtube here. I highly recommend you watch it if you were a fan of the movie. It was a great stage transfer.

Anyway, I've been anxiously waiting to hear if I was selected for call backs, and it's got me feeling those tingles and tickles that I forgot theatre had the magical way of doing. So, while I sit here with fingers and toes crossed ... I thought I'd think good thoughts and throw some pink out into the universe. I hope you don't mind!

Space to Fill - Vol 3. Issue 4

Well, sweater shopping was a bit of a bust. I did happen to find one really great sweater, a cardigan actually - but the rest of my shopping was futile, at best. So, instead of crying over spilled milk, I bought shoes ... which leads me to today's post all about leopard!

I've coveted the Christian Louboutin leopard print tassel loafer since they first appeared on the scene, but at $774.00 they were always a little too much for me to spend on shoes I couldn't reasonably wear to my "real" job, and now they're discontinued. So, after striking out with my sweater adventure, I thought about those shoes and ended up buying these. Granted, they're certainly do not bare a striking resemblance to my dream shoes, but they'll do for the lazy casual shoes they're meant to be.

Thinking ahead to outfit planning, I just couldn't let the opportunity to feature rooms and other lovely images of that bold print escape - so without further ado, enjoy!

Space to Fill - Vol 3. Issue 3

I'm sure some of you will groan, but it's gotten down right cold here in Western New York, and I'm not sure how I feel about it. Many of you know that I started dieting in February of this year, and I've since lost 100 pounds. I've gone from wearing XXL and 3X labels, to wearing Medium and Small athletic or slim fit.

The problem is, when it came time for me to buy new clothes to fit this new, svelte physique, it was summer, and there were no sweaters to be found. So on the first morning when temperatures dropped to 40 degrees, I desperately searched the closets looking for any heavy sweater that would work, finding nothing.

So, I've picked today to not only blog about the comforts of sweaters, and warm cozy places to curl up on cold fall and winter days, but as the day I'm going to exercise one of my credit cards for plenty of new sweaters that fit!
