Several years ago, I experienced an epiphany while vacationing with my husband, Peter, in Nassau, the Bahamas. We were walking towards the beach near the Ocean Club when who should I spot but George Hamilton, the famous actor known for his charm and ever-present tan.
He was leaving the beach with a stunning blonde -- but that wasn’t what caught my eye. Instead, I was riveted by Hamilton’s impeccable appearance. Everyone else who was leaving looked rumpled and tossed together.
But Hamilton looked as if he had just stepped out of Esquire magazine. Nothing he wore was wrinkled, including his fabulous pink shirt that I zeroed in on immediately. “See,” I whispered to Peter, “men wear pink shirts.”
This had been a bone of contention between us -- hubby would not wear a pink shirt that I had recently bought him. Now I could see a changed look on his face and an interested look in his eye.
Which started me thinking: how do some people (male or female) always manage to look great at the beach? Some thoughts…

I just read an article that sounded – to me at least – like “a canary in a coal mine” or an early warning of danger. This piece, written by Joe Pompeo, appeared in the May 2020 issue of Vanity Fair magazine with the title “The British Tabloid Invasion” and a subtitle that read, “How the Daily Mail is conquering American gossip.”

Apparently the good old U.S. is a nation of “not great” sleepers. Really? And I thought I was the only one! According to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention it was revealed that one out of three Americans are chronically sleep-deprived. Yikes!

I think we’re all taken by the incredible mystique of the famous French fashion house, Hermès that has been with us for two centuries and is still owned and operated by the same family. From its beginnings in fine equestrian leather goods, they are – in the tumultuous year 2020 – best known for their handbags and many other items.
My image of Hermès has always been rarified products at equally rarified prices so imagine my surprise when I recently received a very stylish publication of theirs in the mail.
