A story every mom will appreciate from Chrishaunda Lee Perez's “Yes, i Brought It Up”  essay series on her website, Me Time... Kids say the darndest things, don’t they?I was leaning topless over my six-year-old daughter trying to reach something on her night stand table.  As if she was given whiplash by my breasts, she exclaimed to me, “Mommy, they’re long!”My husband was within earshot, but luckily or him, his back was turned to us. He is lucky that I did not hear a chuckle. Double lucky that I did not see his shoulders bounce from trying to laugh silently to himself.

    The WISH.We wanted to design a shoe collection that inspires creativity and individuality… Shoes that could go from stiletto to wedge and everything in between. A shoe that could instantly change from a black suede bootie to a pink patent peep toe, and while we're at it why not a studded strappy sandal? Oh! And we wanted them to be totally affordable - shoes every girl could own. Can we design these dream shoes? It's impossible, right? "Impossible only means you haven’t found the solution yet."The REVOLUTION.It begins now. Join us as we re-create the world of shoes, re-define the world of girls-and revolutionize your closet- ONE CLIQUE at a time. YOU can make a difference - Like us. Follow us. Come this November, every time you shop with us a portion of your sale will be donated to Kind Campaign.

  • There is room for all of us

    Please read another one of my favorite posts by Lindsey Mead from her amazing blog, A Design So Vast...One afternoon last week Grace was telling me about a conversation she had with a friend about being competitive.  They were discussing the pros and cons of that trait, and, Grace said, she told her friend, “Well, my mother is not competitive at all.”  I was equally taken aback, I think, by the fact that she had noticed that and that she’d offered it in a conversation with a friend.This is true.  It’s also surprising to a lot of people.  But it’s absolutely true.  I’ve written before about my disinclination towards competition when it comes to sports and games.

  • This is Ten

    Please read one of my favorite posts by Lindsey Mead from her amazing blog, A Design So Vast...  I spent my teenage summers at a wonderful, rambling house on the Massachusetts shore with several families.  There was always a tangle of children and we got in the habit of going for swims after dinner.  One summer, there was phosphorescence.  I have never forgotten those unexpected, bright swirls of light, otherworldly, as blinding as they were fleeting.Ten is like that.  Ten is phosphorescence.  Ten blazes brightly and vanishes so quickly you wonder if your eyes are playing tricks on you.Ten is a changeling.  In her mahogany eyes I see the baby she was and the young woman she is fast becoming.

  • Where do I begin?

    MAMA MILA....If I started this with the words “where do I begin” how many of you would immediately think of the movie Love Story with Ryan O’Neal and Ali McGraw? For all of you that said yes, smiled or nodded..I now know who the baby boomers are..for those of you who didn’t and still don’t know..that movie will seem ancient if you do rent it but I highly suggest you do as it was a great one “back in the day”.  That movie came to mind as I sat down to write this although my “morphing” into where I am now is not based on romantic love but instead, it is how I feel when trying to share how I got to the place I am now..which is the happiest and most AUTHENTIC place for me..and a place that I LOVE! So I guess the best place to begin is by introducing myself..My name is Lisa Jadis, I am 54 years young..

     I was finishing my morning ritual, big cup of pipping hot coffee and the news, when the phone rang. It was one of my closets friends, Merrie. She called in quite a tither. As I sat sipping the last drops of my delicious cinnamon coffee, when the zinger hit. What I was about to hear was surreal.   After an explanation of why she was so mad and down right in utter shock were the words her boss had said after a sting of minor mistakes. Through the cell airwaves reverberated the quote, "I don't know what goes on in that little head of yours, but not much." I was speechless.  Call me crazy but doesn't that fall in the bully category?   As we have been witness to the suffering of children through bullying, it is never going to stop if adults, too, don't stop bullying adults. We have lived the tales of the playground.
