Cabin Fever Anyone?

In case you're going a little stir crazy.... All of us on Social Media are seeing how people are dealing with the confinement but I have to say this definitely takes the cake. Our Canadian friends in the Yukon Territory are no strangers to Cabin Fever so in 2011 they created.... Wait for it....

I'm choosing Positivity! You?

I was't going to start out with how these are tough times.... but I guess I just did. Sorry! Instead I wanted to show you this amazing photograph that gives me hope that God is watching over us.

I attended a great lecture on Fashion's Influence On Women's Self Image.... Many of the topics I have written about here in the past but here are a few surprises. We all know about the Edwardian and Victorian Corsettes and how painful they were to wear. But I didn't realize the size of the waist was actually dictated by the Queen.
