Stress Less Coloring: Paisley Patterns

I'm totally into adult coloring books. There, I said it. But, hey. 'Better than being totally into adult diapers... or adult films... or adult beverages. (Wait. I'm into them, too. The beverages, I mean.) Anyway, count me among the throngs of people discovering the stress-reducing value in coloring and the fun assortment of coloring books available to calm-seeking adults. Here's my current favorite:
Colored with watercolor pencils.
Page after page of nothin' but paisleys. The only potential pitfall in my new hobby? There are well over 1,000 coloring books to be purchased and I have about 20 I'd like to buy right now. I guess Santa won't have to do much guessing this year.

Erotic timepieces are an important part of replica orologi history. Often going against the we introduced you to luxury watch brand Richard Mille’s RM 69 Erotic Tourbillon. The watch, slated to be out in December, will sell for a whopping $750,000 – no small amount of money for a watch designed to tease and please. Interestingly, Mille’s watch is really not what one would call erotic in the true sense of the word. The timepiece is a play on words with a mix-and-match concept of various sensual and sexy phrases on the dial, from which one can choose to display a series of different messages.grain of certain moral or ethical codes, these watches were sometimes banned or confiscated. Nonetheless many found their way to market over the centuries – much like the poses and prose in the famed Kama Sutra. the first types of erotic watches were made for the Chinese market, with the most luxurious ones created for
replica uhren the Emperor and his entourage.By the 18th century, While the whimsical watch is an updated take on eroticism, with just 30 pieces ever being made, it is destined to be a temptress at auctions in years to come. automatons watches with moving figures on the dial emerged and they seemed the perfect mode to bring erotica to reality. These sophisticated watches were exquisite and rare, often with gold ornamentation. Those that survived the years gained in value.In fact, in an auction held a few years ago in Geneva by Antiquorum, a lot of 30+ erotic watches owned by a private collector went up for sale, with many selling for tens of thousands of replica watches. Among the highlights of the sale was Lot 187, Henry Capt, Musique d’Amour, selling for just over $210,000. The timepiece was a repeating musical watch with four actions with concealed erotic automaton playing at will.

I'll be back after these messages

Boy, I thought I'd never see the old blog again after the whirlwind of life I've had - and am still having - this fall.  Thanks for not giving up on me.
First, the wedding in late October came off with only one hitch. (Don't get me started on over-extended wedding planners.) I ended up cobbling an outfit together from Chico's in taupe (my spin on the mother-of-the-groom mandate: Wear beige and keep your mouth shut), threw on a bunch of pearls and an autumnal pashmina, and did my own hair. Boom! Done. The beautiful Sunday evening wedding in the country culminated a week-long string of activities I have come to call Burning Man East due to the predominance of bonfires at various celebrations. Big fun, big exhaustion.
Three days after the newlyweds returned to Brooklyn, my son summoned the hubs to Game 5 of the World Series in Queens (in which the home team was playing the Mets.) The kid flew his old man to NYC,  bought tickets for themselves and two others, and put him u…

Sabi: Helping your medicine cabinet look hip

I've always said that the companies who figure out how to make aging cool will win baby boomers' hearts in the end (or, better yet, a decade or two before the end.) The stakes are high. There are 78 million of us and gazillions of dollars to be made on our inevitable decline. Enter Sabi. With a mission "....to create products that are intuitively and beautifully designed in order to infuse life’s daily rituals with delight," Sabi boasts that their products "marry superb functionality, simplicity, and aesthetics to make the most mundane to-dos – from taking your daily vitamins to taking out the trash – more enjoyable." I received this bevy of review samples in the mail yesterday: pill folio (aka: 'pill organizer'), dispenser, chopper, crusher and holster. I have to admit, I like the look - sleek, simple and utilitarian....although two of my friends have said they'd need 3 pill folios to hold all their supplements. (Sigh.) Still, I give it two…

Gray hair: A luxury anyone can afford.

I got one of those back-handed compliments on my gray hair from a stranger today: "I wish I could do it. But, I'm afraid of looking old....oh, gawd....but YOURS looks great... really!!" 
    No harm, no foul. It's happened before.
    Charla Krupp, author of "How Not to Look Old," once said, "it's such a luxury to be able to go gray. Because it is an aging look, and it means that you don't care about people knowing your age." 
    She was probably right. Thankfully, I've never been shy about stating my age - it's 56, for the record - or asking others their number, especially when playing 'Who do you know?' The gentler, albeit sneakier, way is asking the year they graduated high school, but sometimes I forget and just blurt it out, often taking people aback.
      But, does it bother me? The looking older part, I mean?
      No. But, admittedly, I'm married. I'm not in the meat market, the job market, or any othe…
