DEPRESSION~Here are the US and Canada Numbers to TEXT for help.

many of us suffer depression throughout the year.

many, like myself, suffer it seasonally.

THE ODD THING FOR ME, IS FALL IS MY FAVORITE SEASON YET FALL/WINTER ARE WHEN MY DEPRESSION HITS THE HARDEST.

I’M NOT GOING TO GIVE YOU A LIST OF SIGNS OF DEPRESSION.

IF YOU THINK YOU ARE DEPRESSED, YOU MOST LIKELY ARE.

THERE ARE MANY REASONS FOR DEPRESSION AND I WANT YOU TO PLEASE REMEMBER THAT IT IS NOT YOUR FAULT. EVEN IF ONE OF YOUR ACTIONS HAS CAUSED YOUR DEPRESSION, PLEASE DO NOT RUN FROM YOUR FEELINGS.

PLEASE SEEK HELP.

I HATE TALKING ON THE PHONE. I HATE IT EVEN WHEN IT’S A FAMILY MEMBER OR FRIEND.

I CERTAINLY DO NOT WANT TO TALK TO A STRANGER ABOUT MY DEEP PERSONAL THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS.

BY CHANCE, THIS POPPED UP IN MY TWITTER FEED THIS MORNING, AND I FELT THE NEED TO SHARE.

PLEASE CHECK THIS SITE OUT.

THERE ARE NUMBERS WHERE YOU CAN TEXT FOR HELP IN BOTH THE U.S. AND CANADA.

A LICENSED COUNSELOR WILL TEXT WITH YOU.

I SEND YOU HUGS AND LOVE ALWAYS.

PARIS FASHION WEEK

Okay, in full disclosure, I am currently suffering from my seasonal depression and having to skip my three times a week physical therapy after recent knee surgery to take this trip, I probably wasn’t in full form to attend this show.

That being said, I was truly disappointed this year.

or, maybe i’m old and not hip enough ha, ha.

yes, a fashion show is indeed supposed to be a show, however, this year seemed to focus more on the show than the clothing.

i did enjoy my trip because it’s really impossible to have a bad time in paris.

since my mood has only improved by two points since returning stateside, my next posts are going to be about seasonal depression.

i know that seems odd to bring up on this particular post, but life blends together.

think about what you would like to discuss regarding seasonal depression and depression in general.

TREND ALERT! ~mini jewelry collection by MichaelM~

I  wanted to share a new mini-collection from Michael M, a premier fashion house known for unique, beautifully detailed pieces, featuring the latest trend, double sided rings! Combining fashion and function, these delicate pieces from the M Collection are so versatile and fun to wear as you can mix and match and change up on the fly depending on your outfit or mood. 

Combining 14K gold (available in yellow, white and rose) and diamonds, each style can be worn two ways, front or back to create an entirely new look (and give you the most bang for your buck)!  For example, the Diamond Arrow Band is adorned with diamonds on each side, so you can ether showcase an open arrow style, or flip it to show off a solo dangling diamond in a bead setting.

A 4th of July party is incomplete without the perfect cocktail. With tequila trending this summer, we would love for your readers to consider Nosotros Blood + Sand, a red, smokey Margini (Margarita Martini) made with Nosotros Tequila.

One of our favorite takes on a ‘margini’ is the Smoke on the Water created by Garh Dokken of the Craft House in Dana Point, CA. The festive, smokey cocktail features Nosotros Reposado, notes of luxardo cherries, vanilla, and blood orange topped with a charcoal eggwhite foam.
