Easter Card and Chocolates Easter Magic

Gathered at the table with my California family, a girl can feel so much magic that even uttering the word perfection can seem a bit of an under statement. Thank you my dear friends for the gift of love and laughter. Some how I still feel I am floating on a bed of tulips filled with Easter eggs and scrumptious desserts. You certainly make life GRAND.

All my love,

Melissa

Happy 125 birhtday Eiffel tower The Eiffel Tower turns 125 Today

Funny how sometimes it takes a little time for certain things to come to fruition. It took two years, two months, and five days to build the Eiffel Tower, and today it turns 125 years old, here are nine things you might not know about it.

Paris is my second favorite city in the world (NYC being number one)- I will never forget the first amazing sunset I experience from the Eiffel Tower for the first time, and then admiring the city of lights from its premises. How was your first encounter with the Eiffel Tower special?

Dry Lingerie Additional Tips once your Lingerie is Dry

  • Never invert the bra cups to store your lingerie, as the smoothness might be damaged considering some bra cups are designed with particular technologies to adjust to your bust shape.
  • Never wear a bra for two days in a row, as it can get stretched without allowing the fabric and elastic time to recover.
  • A bra is not meant to last a lifetime. Rotating 7 to 10 bras and caring for them properly will ensure they last at least one year. Once the bra is too stretched out or it is not giving adequate support, its time has come to an end. Do not be afraid to toss it and get one that does work.
  • To avoid accidental stains wear darker panties and/or pantie liners when necessary. Sometimes stains are unavoidable, in such cases hydrogen peroxide and cold water (never hot, as it sets in the stain) can come in handy.
  • Always put shape wear in zippered mesh bags
  • Make sure to wash your bras on a regular basis as dirt stains and sweat stains can also be damaging to its lifespan.

Feel free to share with us any of your lingerie care secrets.

Kisses,

Melissa
