Baileys Irish Cream/Coffee Cocktail

Baileys Irish Cream/Coffee Cocktail

[tooltip text=”TooltipText”][/tooltip] Who says you cannot have a cocktail on a Monday? I do(raises hand)! If you are like me, you don’t say a word to anyone in the morning without having your first cup of coffee. Needless to say, I am a coffee addict and I’m woman enough to own my “ish”. I also enjoy the occasional cocktail especially…

Versatile outfit for the busy woman

Versatile outfit for the busy woman

Culottes have never been a wardrobe staple for me. I somehow made up my mind that they would not look good on me without ever having tried on a pair. With my tall and only slightly curvy frame at 5’11”, I felt like I would erase any figure I had by donning a pair. When I saw this  Vince Camuto pair…
