My wife is now mad at me for not buying her a penguin.

I gave in! After much resistance, I finally have accepted that head scarves (a.k.a. turbans, the non-religious kind) are in! And I am in love. Today I am modeling an original, hand-made Jaqueleen Larson Turban. I not only adore this because it keeps my unruly hair off my face, but because the amazing designer made it with a pony print! Which, I think she knew would win me over as soon as I saw it. 

Mission accomplished, Jaqueleen. To the public, while these may be exclusive creations as of now, look out for J.Larson Originals in stores soon. 

“How do you stand out if everybody’s trendy? The only way is to be beyond the trend.”
There has been a rising trend of “business casual” work environments, and a change to what’s socially acceptable in the business world. Instead of dressing up in the “white colar uniform” on a daily basis, people are re-defining their look to tell the world that they have something unique to offer beyond the traditional business person. With the economic low, professionals are realizing that they have to make themselves stand out in new and unique ways. One of these ways, is through fashion. 
It is now commonplace in many offices to wear jeans, if not sweatshirts (take, for example, Mark Zuckerburg’s well-known ensemble of a tee and hoodie with jeans), and the idea of a professional outfit is now not so black-and-white (or any other combination of neutrals, for that matter). Women wear shorter, less structured skirts and larger jewelry, while men who wear neckties are far less commonplace. 
As we continue to blur the line between what is fashionable and what is office appropriate, it takes a unique professional to walk the line and really stand out from the crowd.

This is my favorite comfort food. And it’s so easy to make, I just adapted a recipe from my mother:
In a slow cooker, combine (add as much or as little as you like):
Chopped Stew Meat
Potatos
Onion
Baby Carrots
1 Can Diced Tomatos
Garlic 
1/2 Bottle of Red Wine
Rosemary
1 Bay Leaf
Fill the slow cooker the rest of the way with water (or beef stock, whatever you have on hand), add a pinch of salt, and put on “low” while you’re at work for the day.
When you come home, enjoy the wonderful aroma the stew produced, and serve with a glass of wine (preferably the same one you used to cook the stew with) and some warm, crusty bread.
Sit back, relax & enjoy with loved ones. Preferably by candlelight on a rainy evening.
