I love Colin Cowie. Year’s ago when I was working full-time and going to college I picked up his book Effortless Elegance. I kept telling myself that this is how I wanted to live once I finished school. It’s always one of those reference books I go back to. I still have the episode on my DVR from Oprah on living well. I hope that I inspire people to live well through the blog – with food, wine, travel, and beauty. Always beauty. Always lip gloss. I love when Colin said "I am not the type of person to eat tuna in a can over a sink. That’s just not my movie." I feel the exact same way, Colin. Sometimes I log on to his site because his music is so good. I’ve bought all the CDs that are playing. Imagine my delight to find out that he has a new book coming out this month. Colin Cowie Chic: The Guide to Life as It Should Be will be added to my already overstocked floor of lifestyle books. In the movie of my life, I will be having a stimulating conversation at the table of Mr. Cowie, sipping a lovely cocktail, listening to his party planning, wearing a fabulous lip gloss (right now it’s Prescriptives Smoothie Lip Tint which Erika from the Makeup Bag turned me on to) and living life as it should be.
