A watch face smashed on January 1, 1959. Hotel ballrooms seem haunted by a ghost of a more decadent era as tables were set and the place-settings hardly seem to have changed since.
I will be speaking at Women’s Travel Fest next week in New Orleans! You have less than a week to get your tickets so get after it! Women’s Travel Fest is a 3-day event that empowers, inspires and connect women in travel.
It’s not only what looks good, but also about doing good through the choices that she makes. Mrs. Obama’s style choices were a wonderful commentary on globalism at it’s best. Now how ‘N A Perfect World is that?!
