Happy weekend and welcome to this week’s Seven for Saturday! Here are a handful of things on my radar lately: 1 ~ An Engrossing Read Looking for a suspenseful page-turner to read? Look no further than this novel. A friend told me about it a couple of months ago and I finally got around to reading it earlier this week. I sailed through it in three days, it was so riveting. I couldn’t help myself!…

You may have noticed that I changed my profile photo on my sidebar recently. It’s a photo that I feel best represents who I am: relaxed, confident and approachable with a healthy dose of glamour thrown in. The photo is a result of a photo shoot I had last month with Mariah Smith of Mariah Smith Photography. I was fortunate to have experienced her Modern Beauty Portraiture first hand and I have to tell you, it was…
