They say, when one window closes another Mac opens… okay, maybe they don’t say that, I just made it up, clever huh?

2015 New Years Resolutions

It’s  a new year, and that means a fresh start.  2014 had some highs and lows, and I really hoped to start 2015 fresh and organized… Unfortunately, issues with my laptop have started the year off to a rocky start.  But an Everyday Starlet must persevere.  So I am creating this post all on my new iPad (a Christmas gift I picked out before I knew a new laptop would be in my not-so-distant future).  I’m loving my iPad, and I guess it’s a blessing in disguise that I needed to learn how to use it as my main computer this week (normally I let technology sits around until I desperately need to learn how to use it).

That said, I’ve never been a fan of New Years “Resolutions” (who really sticks with them past Jan?)… But I am a very big fan of goals, and the start of a New Year is the perfect time to focus on the things you want to accomplish.  Here are my goals for the New Year… (more…)

Some would say that handwriting letters is a lost art.  I personally have to confess that my handwriting is less than glamorous.  However, true Starlets always have a signature, and I’m not just talking about their name (which they practice over and over again.)  They had signature paper, pens, ink… and it usually tied in with their personal style.

Jayne Mansfield kept true to her pink obsession with a pink inked signature and hearts (more…)
