This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

Opening of Boating Season

May, 12, 2015

You don’t have to be a sailor to join in the fun of boating season! You don’t even have to board a vessel. I often join friends for a waterfront picnic at a local park while watching the boats sail by as the sun sets.

And you can stay in step with the season even when you’re away from the water. Maritime fashions are abundant. The stylist who showed me this striped, lace-up Kate Spade dress said it’s meant to be a bit boxy. That way you’ll be comfortable if you do happen to meet a sailor and get swept off to sea!

My Kate Spade straw tote is large enough to store sunglasses, sunscreen, and whatever else you might need for the trip. And I bet you can guess who made my headband. You know the saying, “all in the family.” Well, all three of the items I chose are Kate’s.

And since this is Beauty Trend Tuesday, I have a tanning tip for you…even if you live in a place where the sun isn’t always out. My friend, who is a golden goddess year-round, let me in on her secret. She moisturizes with Lancôme’s Flash Bronzer so her face always has a natural glow. I’d say with it, your boating dress, and your straw bag, you’re ready this season come what may.
