Thank you for stopping by. Here’s a bit more about me…I love, in no particular order:

Finding the perfect red lipstick, fearless females, my boys, four-legged friends, essential oils, cashmere, affordable art, no-bull-beauty, the smell of tobacco flowers, coffee, leather and jasmine at night, the roar of a high-powered engine, party Friday, quaffable fizz and wine, and cocktails, espresso martini anyone? Boy jokes, thrift-shop Sundays, hotel beds, Frette sheets, driving very fast, facials and freshly painted toes, her family and friends (you know who you are), the feel of buttery leather, turning left on an aeroplane, dive bars, and oysters… I could go on, and I will. Right here. I do hope OFF-DUTY EDITOR {ODE} will either inspire (credit card at the ready), entertain, or at the very least, offer a little distraction throughout your day.
