CITIZEN: bloom

CITIZEN: bloom. For the record, I am a plant loving, dirt digging, people nurturing, pro-choice, pro-living wage, pro-worker's rights, anti-hate and anti pasta eating sort of gal. I'm a believer in the power of thoughts and prayer, whether or not there is evidence of a god who hears them. 

Because, I am an even firmer believer in the power of action.
Proof's in the pudding so to speak, trees by the fruit sort of yada yada, and as beautiful and lovely is a silky turn of phrase, nothing beats the potent proof of putting your money where your mouth is. 

If you believe it, live it.

What are YOU living today? 

Comment, tweet it, live it.

Petal to Metal: blooming in vintage metallics

Grey days go away when lit up in lux metals.

Not just for the holidays, vintage embellished with flecks of gold and silver threads are just the thing to add a little dazzle to a dowdy January day.

Can't decide which you like better, a cool silver or warming gold? You don't need to.

New Year, Same Old You.

Every time a new year rolls around on a calendar, grumbles about the obligatory New Year’s resolutions tumble out. You feel pressured to make them, and almost inevitably break them. Gym memberships boom, only to treadmill to an empty room. Or something like that.

You want to lose weight, quit Facebook, read more, cuss less, be a better mom, better wife, better boss. Better anything really, just something to assure yourself that your annual spin around the planet, was time well spent.

I almost always make the same resolutions every year, in nearly the exact same order:

Bloom Lilac

Poetry for living: celebrate joyful living in a whisper soft lilac mohair scarf.

False blue,



Color of lilac,

You have forgotten your Eastern origin,   

The veiled women with eyes like panthers,

The swollen, aggressive turbans of jeweled pashas.

Now you are a very decent flower,   

A reticent flower,

A curiously clear-cut, candid flower,   

Standing beside clean doorways,

Friendly to a house-cat and a pair of spectacles,   

Making poetry out of a bit of moonlight   

And a hundred or two sharp blossoms. 
                                -Amy Powell, excerpt from Lilacs
