So what do you and your partner like to do on an afternoon of just chillin’? One of the many things my husband and I enjoy is watching historical dramas. One example is the television series called Versailles.
We first discovered Versailles on Netflix. It’s a period piece that premiered in November of 2016, set in mid-1600s France under the rule of Louis XIV. Louis decides to move the French court from Paris to his father’s former hunting lodge located in Versailles to force the nobles to submit to his rule.
What follows is amazing scenery, brilliant costuming, heavy drama, and a surprisingly accurate story. We enjoy verifying the storyline of historical dramas and have no patience for large scale embellishment. Stef is very interested in the landscape, the fashion girl in me loves to analyze the designs, and we both scrutinize the accuracy. Bottom line, chillin’ and catching up on the happenings at Versailles is a great way to relax during the afternoon of a busy week. We can’t wait for Season 3.
How about you? What do you or you and your partner enjoy doing on a lazy afternoon? Leave a comment, and let’s start a dialogue. And don’t forget to…
So when you start your day, how do you go about coordinating your wardrobe? Do you have a shirt in mind that drives the entire ensemble or perhaps some accessories lined up? Well, I usually start with the shoes…
The shoes are a critical fashion element as they are a focal point. Everybody notes awesome shoes.
So am I feeling fun or sexy? I’ll start with the heels. What’s the weather? If it’s cold, then those heels take the form of boots. If I’m leaning more toward sensual, I may wear boots that travel over the knee. What if the weather’s hot? High strappy sandals win.
If I’m feeling casual, what type of casual is this? Am I going to be walking far? Then a cute pair of sneakers will do the trick. A standard out and about day might dictate ballet flats or sandals. Combat boots are great for winter.
And don’t get me started on the importance of color. Or heel shape…Do I want a narrow heel, block heel, or wedge?
Once I have the shoes, I build the ensemble from there. Wait a minute…Which handbag?
What do I do that gets me up while all of my friends are still asleep? I teach…and I love it!
My teacher friends here in Orange County, Florida would question my extra early rise, but I don’t join them in public schools. I teach English to children in China.
No, I’m not hopping a plane to China each day. I take advantage of technology. I’m an independent contractor, and my client offers me a platform on which I instruct students online. Parents book me, and I teach. That’s it. All I need is my laptop and headset, and I’m ready to instruct from home.
As an online ESL (English as a Second Language) educator, I have the unique opportunity of teaching students overseas. In my case, it’s China. My odd work hours are due to the twelve hour time difference. I’m on Eastern Standard Time, so when it’s 4:30 a.m. in Florida, it’s 5:30 p.m. the same day in China.
No lesson planning, no paperwork, no papers to grade, no bureaucracy…I just do what I enjoy. I teach, and I love my job!

Giving a shout out to a wonderful company I stumbled upon…
Buddha Groove has an amazing selection of jewelry, apparel, home items, and healing gemstones. I first saw their goods on Facebook. After jewelry from the site appeared, reappeared, and reappeared again, I decided to have a look. This particular three stone amethyst ring had caught my eye.
I was intrigued by the lovely amethyst stones and sterling silver textured band which was reminiscent of tree branches. It is beautiful, unique, and well made. And I love supporting small businesses.
