Finally a rambling post about something.
This dress was a thrift store score ages ago. I saw it, I loved it, I wore it. You can see me prancing about in it, in a ridiculous outfit post here. I've since outgrown it, and have it listed for sale here. It's a lovely t...

Hate to say, not surprised your job search is difficult.  Age discrimination is alive and well in America for women 40 and over. 
I have always liked your outfit posts (in fact touted you in 2014 for an AtoZ fashion post).
Blogging is an odd animal - like yelling down a tunnel and getting no answer.  Still a great forum for creative and fashionable endeavors.

BELLA AT 50: be bold
THE NIFTY FIFTY: this is my first official blog post at the age of 50. Hello world. It seemed apropo to put on this black graphic T-shirt telling me to BE BOLD. After all, I have been slinking around lately in very drab outfits as of late, with little thoug...

Hey, Bella just wrote a new post, about something or another, and she probably didn't proof read it.

Introduction
Bloom where you're planted. Home grown in California, now blooming in Seattle.

Just your average baby-faced +40 fashion blogger who loves thrift shopping and personal style. I believe fashion should be about fun not fads. Life too, for that matter.
Bragging rights
my name is Bella and I want you to bloom madly

Skin care = Self Care. I'm not sure I was expecting such an uplifting experience when I booked my appointment with Djaoulda. Of course, her facials were praised highly via word of mouth by some West Seattle pals who had experienced her services. Professional, yet warm was this highly rated certified esthetician, and the space was cozy, relaxed and felt a bit, uh, spiritual. I chose the Geisha facial, and I felt pampered, nourished and overwhelmed by the wonderful aromatic oils and balms slathered on my face. By the end of it, it was if I had experienced a body message, so relaxed and refreshed was my spirit. When I arrived home, I was delighted to see visible results on my mug: even complexion, clear pores, and an all over glow-y appearance. It reminded me of why I chose to do a facial in the first place: the need to take care of myself now includes the commitment to my body and skin. This service seems indulgent, but really is something anybody who values themselves is sure to do. Please note: appointments fill quickly- book asap! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Do you believe in unicorns? Well, as rare and impossible as a unicorn, is a record store where the clerks are as nice as they are knowledgeable. Beats and Bohos is such a unicorn. They have an amazing record collection, considering how small the section is- good prices on some fantastic vinyl. But wait, there is more: vintage clothing. vintage house wares. vintage tschokies. vintage furniture. Monthly music and art events. And did I mention the folks who run the place. Nice as pie. No attitude about your record choices, no too-cool-for-school snarls at your ugly Christmas sweater worn without irony. Just good ol' fashion mid-western politeness mixed with a smidge of Seattle swagger and a dose of California cool. In short: soon to be legendary. Already awesome. Go check it out.
