The get back to the get back

An explosion of a guilty past:

I mean get back, get back to where you come from.

Your papa was a hater, your mom an instigator

it was your faith your future your creation 
     that drew you to the computer

Meanwhile get back, get back to where y'all come from

As pieces of guilt FLASH! pass you

As we try to get back, get back
     to the time we were guilt free,
    left to explore our wild minds, 

Life, love, family and attitude
bring us peace by piece whether longitude or 


Join us our sister ~ brother HOOD

One is not mightier than the other,
     no more fighting
    harmony to envelop us 

Feel like floating?

To the time when we were guilt free, 
      left to explore our wild minds,
     our creative discoveries
     and destinations 

Focus on the good stuff
exhaust out the fumes from the crap

Release it all into atmosphere
washed clean by God's rain, to wake US ALL up 
     no doubt

Now we have our chances
to tomorrows that we know are hidden! 
Just around the corner!
we feel bright sunshine beams pulling us in

To have optimism for tomorrow
 after bidding bye to fact checking
    dirty laundry

We focus on the right path
to not forget 
    life's best lessons:

~..~ the longest minutes never last ~..~

  ~ q u o t e ~


Only mood is peacefulness
     as we are not even hidden, 
     while banished all our fears

Where we sing together
     Lala la-la lalalaaaaaah
     one big happy gang
     of friends no foes world
     of love

The easiest recipe ever had
     Let it go, say it ain't so,
    it never happened

The kindest outlook to be seen
     by few, not many.  Think Ghandi Mother Theresa       why not Pope Francis too?

Hidden away in her cupboard
called life

She's her mother's daughter ::
proud, strong, great when she feels free
stifulled breath grasps for air
Caught in her own whirlwind

Tiffany dahling

Tiffany, the legend
As a Canadian, I too, have become enthralled with the legend of Tiffany.  A couple of weeks ago I had myself a goof-off day.  

Goof off day
A goof off day was when I had a day off in the middle of the week.  I put all my responsibilities and "to do" lists away and headed out to go to where my heart took me.  

The mall
This was a different meandering than my typical blog meandering, this was in my little car and an empty wallet (on purpose).  I set out to a mall I hadn't been to for a good three years.  Odd, for someone like me but then again not so when you recognize I hate battling crowds and near crash parking episodes.

One purpose
I did have one item that needed to be taken care of:  my iPad mini had stopped working so I wanted to go to the only Apple Store in Calgary for them to have a look to see what had happened to my dearly beloved iBooks.  

An addiction
Reading is my tool de force and admitted addiction.  My Apple iPad Mini had stalled and I had purchased books on it.  Goodness me, thankfully it was not in the middle of reading one of my secret vices:  thrillers.

Once I had the mighty techie from Apple fix my iPad all up and off to go, it was time for me to head off to my hearts desire:  discovery.  Right beside The Apple Store was Tiffany's.  Not even when I was in New York did I go into Tiffany's and realized this was what a goof off day was all about:  go where my heart and soul wanted to go.

A tradition
I have always known that any smart man knows that his proposal to his bride to be has to include a gasp, a cry of gratitude  and exclamation over beauty that automatically accompanies the blue box.  One can't help that any hesitation or reservation on saying "I do" is automatically wiped away from the mere sight of the blue box.

Join me for a journey celebrating what any gal any age dreams of owning ..... something from Tiffany.

Crowned with a white ribbon, the Tiffany Blue Box is an international symbol of style and sophistication.

The legend of Tiffany's

THE Tiffany Blue box
The world has been enthralled with the distinctive Tiffany Blue Box since the very beginning. It was Charles Lewis Tiffany who mandated that the coveted boxes could only be acquired with a Tiffany purchase. As reported by the New York Sun in 1906, "Tiffany has one thing in stock that you cannot buy of him for as much money as you may offer, he will only give it to you. And that is one of his boxes."
Glimpsed on a busy street or resting in the palm of a hand, Tiffany Blue Boxes make hearts beat faster, and epitomize Tiffany’s great heritage of elegance, exclusivity and flawless craftsmanship.
(except from

Founder Charles Lewis Tiffany had an abiding 
passion for the most beautiful diamonds in the world.

Pioneers of Design
Since its founding, Tiffany has been at the forefront of the world’s greatest design movements. Its Japanesque silver won Tiffany the highest honors at the 1878 Paris World Exposition and at the turn of the twentieth century, Louis Comfort Tiffany emerged as an Art Nouveau leader. From glamorous, geometric Art Deco pieces and bold cocktail-style creations to the nature-inspired works of Jean Schlumberger and Elsa Peretti, Tiffany has broken new ground time and again with exceptional designs that remain relevant today.

Tiffany’s spectacular jewelry vividly mirrored the sumptuous fashion and exuberant spirit of the Roaring Twenties. In 2013, Tiffany presented an extraordinary collection that celebrates American glamour at the height of the Jazz Age. Much of the inspiration for these stunning designs came straight from the Tiffany Archives, and the pieces brilliantly express all the energy and optimism of New York City in that most marvelous of times.

The Gatsby Collection 
As America’s foremost jeweler during the vibrant 1920s, Tiffany dressed the most stylish names of the era in extraordinary designs. The exuberant spirit and cosmopolitan chic of the Jazz Age inspired a modern collection of breathtaking jewels.

Over the years, Tiffany & Co. has introduced the world to diamonds of breathtaking brilliance and a marvelous selection of previously unknown colored gemstones.

Rare and Radiant
Tiffany’s expertise in exceptional yellow diamonds dates back to 1878 when Charles Lewis Tiffany purchased the 287.42-carat Tiffany Diamond. Cut into a cushion-shape brilliant weighing 128.54 carats, this priceless stone is one of the most important yellow diamonds in the world, drawing thousands of visitors to the New York flagship each year.

A breathtaking symbol of Tiffany’s exquisite diamond heritage and brilliant craftsmanship, the Tiffany Diamond inspired Tiffany’s magnificent yellow diamond designs

World eras
Tiffany's can be associated with most world events or what fashion trends are catching on by storm.  Ever prevalent to add the glamour to any look before us.

BLING it on ....

Diamonds are a girls best friend.

Ok fellas, soon it will be Christmas and are you going to be one of those sheepish men out on its eve, madly swirling around the cosmetic counters, prey to the stylish babes who are ready to squirt perfume on you, shellshock you with all the choices, then twirl some ribbon around your gift? ... then voila!  You're good to go for another year.

Allow me to be bold for the babe in your life and give you a big hint:  ladies love bling.   Now, not many, and not even a few could afford this diamond but in her eyes, any bling says to her, from you, that you GET her.  Well, you've got her and likely a diamond is nestled on her finger with the band that signifies LIFE together, forever.

Before you start groaning.  Don't be so stubborn.  You have almost 20 whole days to startle your lady with something that reflects the sparkles in her eyes when you buy her something that shines, saying:  "I love you" every time she wears her new gift.  Right?

Don't start sweating and start running away.  I'm not going to drill you on whether your last minute purchase is really about the beautiful hotness convincing you that this is the perfume that your lady would love.  Just remember, she'll love it because it is from YOU, her man, her main squeeze, the hunkster husband.  A perfume ensemble is going to set you forward $150-$200.

You probably grumble that she has wayyyyy to many purses, you couldn't possible choose one that she would adore.  Think again.   How could she possible think anything but love (especially if you know the "IN" names in bags these days):

Voeevodd Reg.$277 Sale $80.88 (71% off)

Deck her out in style with a complete ensemble that will warm her up in more ways than one.  This can be found with the right name on it:  COACH.  The latest "shearling look" will communicate to the world that lady is in touch with the latest trends.

IF you do consider
going with COACH crossover, these boots are so adorable when enhanced by the "shearling" cuff.

Before you have a heart attack when Tiffany comes up, remember, there's a staple necklace, that anyone would adore, at around $392. Cdn, it won't set you back as much as you think.

If on the day of Christmas you want her to sing: "my true love gave to me" think this amazing set of tanzanite which is the NEW diamond every gal should have in a collection:

The Seleste Collection will set you back more than a pretty penny.  The pendant is $5,500, the earrings $8,800 and the ring $4,100.  

For almost $20,000 it SHOULD be a gal's dream come true.

Now that you've had a mild stroke and the sweat is pooling off your brow, it is time to settle down and consider some lovely fashion jewellery that can cause a stir with your good taste.

I found a great location in a Farmer's Market locally that was selling genuine Blue Topaz pendants. Forget about hinting at Tiffany's first.   There are plenty of reputable jewellers like People's Jewellers in Canada who had this moderately priced at  $229.  Not really my style, but I wouldn't complain ... if there were matching earrings.  Just kidding ...... um sort of.

Their enticing words

Offer her your heart and say, "I love you." A gracefully looping 10K white gold ribbon gently suspends the heart-shaped 12.0mm blue topaz featured in this charming pendant. The soft and serene blue hues sparkle beautifully with six brilliant diamond accents. Delicately suspended, the pendant rests on a rope chain 17.0 inches in length with a spring-ring clasp. Make her December birthday unforgettable with the gift of blue topaz birthstone jewellery.

There are lots of pretty and funky jewellery around 
to suit versatile tastes.  

Some fellows may have a greater
challenge to impress with 
those having ladies that don't
usually wear jewellery.  I'd
suggest a dainty gold one in
that case.

You can't go wrong with an extra long one either.  They're popular with the young or older set, adding charm to a casual ensemble or a business blouse.

Not everyone inherits their grandmother's pearls, so you could start your own heritage.

Well, that should kick start things for you.  There is plenty of time still to buy online and most places will ship for free.  If not, there are enough choices out there that you can bypass the ones that don't.  Don't underestimate sites like to have everything that you can dream up all in the same place.  Think of a bestselling book -- or even an adult coloring book.    You could always ask if they provide gift wrapping and you'd have it made .... long before Christmas Eve with all the other schmucks who haven't realized that online shopping is a time saver with a lot of ideas, even if they're not diamonds, at your fingertips.  Just DON'T fall for buying her a gadget -- that is what YOU like.
