I started this website over eight years and decided that everything I share online will remain positive, educational and inspirational. Even in my personal life, I choose to share positive messages and fun stories.

I'm not that old, but I do remember the days before smartphones and social media. The days when we got our news from the daily paper and if you wanted to talk to someone you called them on your wired telephone and hoped they were home to answer or walked over to their house.

Now, there is so much information online and so many ways to connect instantly with social media. I wish all of it was positive, but unfortunately, negativity creeps in too often. There were quite a few times last year, I couldn't even scroll through my social media pages because the news was so disturbing. I had to stop myself from reading comments and getting upset over it.

We will never go back to the what I consider the 'simple days', but I can choose to remain positive and share inspiring, funny or feel good messages every day. One way I spread positivity is through the clothes I wear and Cents of Style graphic tees are my favorite. I also have a serious love for leggings and skirts with fun and sometimes wild patterns. Why not have some fun with fashion? Read More...

Pumpkin Muffins with Cream Cheese Swirl


Pumpkin is commonly associated with the season of Fall, right?  As well it should be because that's when pumpkins start showing up everywhere.  In lattes, in breads, in donuts, on porch steps, everywhere!  But pumpkin doesn't always have to be eaten in just the Fall.  I was looking in my pantry the other day, spied a random can of pumpkin filling, remembered the cream cheese that I had in the fridge and I knew that pumpkin muffins are perfect even for January!

Now I love it with the cream cheese layer, but that's actually optional. You can skip that step and then you'll have just pumpkin muffins.  Still wonderful in their own right.  The cream cheese does add an extra oomph!  But it does add some complexity.  And if today is a day you just need simple, skip it.  It'll make a little fewer muffins, but that's A-OK!  You'll always have my permission to simplify things in the kitchen.
