What do you think of when you think of a Diva? If you are thinking of high maintenance and full of drama, I am thinking you have the wrong view of just what a Diva is. That actual original word Diva is a “term used to describe a woman of outstanding talent in the world of opera.” However, it is the sense of the word – “goddess” and through time came to be known as a woman who is in touch with their inner goddess, is talented and knows what she wants and goes after it.

I know there are plenty of Diva’s out there. I would almost bet you know one too! They won’t leave the house without their makeup, not a hair out of place, and strutting an outfit to die for. I know one young lady (Takesia) who recently turned 21 who happens to be the Webster Dictionary definition of “Diva”. She even does mundane things such as dishes, cooking, and even laundry in heels. Yes heels and no less then 4 inch ones at that! Her reasoning behind the housework in heels is that housework is the one thing she doesn’t enjoy doing so if she is doing it in her heels it makes her feel better about doing it. Whatever works for her! ;-)

Just take a look at Brides Magazine and you will begin to have an appreciation for the endless possibilities available to modern engaged couples.

It seems to me that some countries celebrate more holidays than we do. We might spend a fortune and abundant time on the biggies, but there are dozens of other holidays throughout the year when we could be making merry. Holiday Smart has a pretty complete listing of all this year’s special days. Why not make it a challenge to observe as many happy days as possible?

Did you know there is a special day set aside for Mother in Laws? I did not know that until just recently. Similar to Mother's Day, this observance was started in 2002 to celebrate those special In-Laws! It takes place on the fourth Sunday of every October – this time on the 23rd of October, 2011. I am sure there are a lot of daughter in laws, son in laws, and even mother in laws who would like to celebrate this day if only they knew about it. Well, this is my announcement to the world that the day for honoring the woman who brought your loved one into the world is right around the corner!

So you have to give a dinner party for business guests. What do you do? If you are like many people, you fret and worry over the best way to entertain them. After all, it is often extremely important to make a good impression. Whether you are entertaining business associates from out of town or a group of employees, you want to come off in the best possible light.

If you are considering going on a girls’ night out, the first examples that pop into your head will probably be the common ones. I know I always think of going to a movie or a bar. What if you are in charge of making the plans for your next outing? Will you choose the same old tired activities? What if you could come up with a better idea?

If you have ever watched Project Runway on Lifetime you have heard of Bryant Park where all the new designers are fighting for their chance to show on Bryant Park during NYC Fashion week! It is a pretty big deal and most designers dream of getting their chance to strut their stuff at Bryant Park. Do you watch it?

One of my favorite things to do in my free time is to hang out with my Diva Dahlings ~ my girlfriends. J You know how it is when you are with your girlfriends and no matter what may be going on in your life at the time; you always end up feeling great. It doesn’t matter what you are doing, from sitting around chatting while drinking a cheap bottle of wine or sipping on some ice tea, a great time is always had. I always end up feeling renewed, special and just great all over. (Strikingly similar to receiving a fabulous gift.)
