I haven’t read “Fifty Shades of Grey,” have never seen the Chippendales, nor have I ever attended a bachelorette party with male strippers (or female for that matter). My narrow world was opened a little more after seeing the reaction of the female audience attending 50 Shades! The Musical. They howled, catcalled and whistled so I’m guessing I now have an idea of what it’s like attending one of the before mentioned events. Although crude, the 69-minute musical is a hilarious parody of the Fifty Shades of Grey book series.Read More

I was a bird. I was a plane. I was David Lee Roth from Van Halen’s 1984 video for “Jump” during a recent trip to AirHeads Trampoline Arena in Orlando. It doesn’t matter I’m a childless, 40-something-year-old. Bouncing from trampoline to trampoline to trampoline was insanely fun, an incredible workout, the perfect sleeping aid and perfect prescription for reconnecting with my inner child. Dang, I was tired when I got back!Read More
Yesterday I began a four-month journey and hope you’ll stick around for it. No, it’s not a travel adventure nor is it some philosophical sabbatical trying to figure out the meaning of life. It’s a journey to hopefully enhance and grow long, lush eyelashes using Fysiko EyeLash Growth Serum. I recently joined a review site called Influenster which selected me to try this beauty product which retails for$139.Read More
Stepping into the Bellagio Las Vegas just shy of midnight, my eyes were drawn to the Chihuly installation of colorful glass flowers hovering over guests in the main lobby. “G-L-A-M-O-R-O-U-S”…Fergie’s song immediately played through my head and did so each time I walked through the lobby and Conservatory & Botanical Gardens. Somehow, I’ve let my life become focused on making others happy and successful – through my job and personal endeavors – yet for a weekend in April, time belonged to me and it was my goal to be selfish, indulgent and happy.
