Announcing Kellie K. Apparel Strapless Bra Kickstarter

Strapless bras. Some of us can't go without them but hate the fit. I first was introduced by Kellie K. Apparel while watching a HuffPost Live segment a couple of years ago.

I love this couple's enthusiasm and determination. They have created a comfortable, stylish but supportive strapless bra.

While I'm too busty for their line, I've got my fingers crossed that with full funding they can later add larger bra sizes!

Check out their Kickstarter page for more information. Like what you see? Consider making a donation that fits your budget. And please spread the word via your social media platforms!

Thursday Thoughts ~ October 22, 2015

As a long time Gilmore Girls fan, I do hope that Netflix decides to give the reboot a thumbs up! I just hope it's a s good as it's original!

Looks like Oprah will bring her gold touch to Weight Watchers. Some reports stated that the stock rose 300%.

Looks like Chris Rock is going to have a 2nd chance at hosting The Oscars. Best of luck buddy.

This news doesn't surprise me but after much research it's being recommended that pregnant women do not drink alcohol.

Happy Birthday Hubby!

"Happy Birthday Charles"! You always have my back and I've got yours.

Like Taking Photos and Posting to Your Social Media? Consider Updating Your Lighting?

Tip one: Lighting

If you're like me, your home tends to run on the dark side. Not much overhead lighting or bright areas. One's camera can only do so much.

Do a YouTube search "Improve lighting for videos", for example and you'll get 1000+ results.

P.S. I do suggest watching a few over a course of a few days, for reference. I got lots of helpful suggestions from the beauty and fashion YT.

But when it comes to lighting, determine what you need, set a budget and head to Amazon. I found my lighting kit for $39.99. Oh, lets just say $40!

Matter of fact, I kept watching the prices, for months, till it drop under $40! When it did, I placed my order!

Here's a photo college taken with the lighting kit.

And one photo where the lighting kit was not use.

Enough said.

Sunday Community: I Really Do Love Us

Happy Wives Club

As another decade will be added to our marriage next April, I can't tell you how much I truly love us.

Our love story is my all-time favorite.

Hubby and I met at Friendly's Ice Cream restaurant 27 years ago, in South Portland, Maine. He'd usually show up every Thursday night. Ordered coffee and a bowl of cream of broccoli soup.

Sometimes he would ask to be seated in my section. I remember that he tipped well.

Most times he was being chatty with the manager. So when this cute guy asked me to dinner and movie, I was shocked. But I did say Yes! And the rest is history!

P.S. Our son was able to go back home and visit the restaurant his parent first met. He later told me it was weird. He was only a preteen at the time. Now he thinks it was really cool!
