Happy New Year!
I cannot believe I started this project eight weeks ago and am still going strong. I have been having such fun writing it, and your feedback has been all positive thus I know that everyone is enjoying it. Well I guess I shall keep it coming into 08. People have been asking when it will be a pod cast; goodness I just taught myself how to send an e card today.
Raise a toast (Prosecco) tonight all! I have big hopes and dreams for all of us in this New Year, 2008.
Some of my favorite fashion things this week are all over the map but here goes!
Edun jeans- Bono and wife Ali and Rogan Gregory are making clothing socially conscious. I am such a fan of Rogan Gregory designs and this team includes my all time favorite rocker and humanitarian Bono of U2 fame.
Check out up and coming local designs by 4march, LLC in Cambridge at http://www.4march.com
Nature of Compassion Tee by J. Jill– all profits goes to the J. Jill Compassion Fund. Everyone knows my obsession with good quality t shirts. I have a collection that I wear with black pants. A great T like this one and a killer jacket or sweater (plus a good cause) makes for an easy look. If you are a jean connoisseur then substitute them for my 'black pant'.
More underpinning and T options in affordable pricing can be found at Madewell 1937. They are located in the new Natick Collection and online at http://www.madewell1937.com

Service provider tip of the week:
I recently meet Lisa, a professional barber, for over 30 years who is based at Kendall Barber 238 Main St Cambridge, MA 02142-1016 617-876-1221. Girls send your man over to see her and use her expert services. Men you will be transformed.
I am still doing the Parisian women nail color thing aka ghostly white nails. This week I am wearing a product from MAC – Nail Lacquer-Frost called Vestral White. I love it because it provides great coverage.
The toughest purchases to make are undergarments. Bloomingdales intimates is the solution- I finally found a great brand Fayreform. I found a style and size to fit even me!
Do good-ers. Check out these sites. Good work is being done all around us. Participate.
Famous Lisa retail quote of the week- "This is a debacle of epic proportion!"
