    Get the best deals every time you shop when you use Octer.com I love a good deal when I shop. Sometimes my husband and I have a competition to see who shops smarter.

    What is your best color?

    What is your best color? A few days ago when I talked to a local designer about featuring her designs on my “I WANT HER CLOSET” TV segment on What’s up Detroit, she said she needs to see what will be the best color on me. It got me thinking because I am ok with pretty much just about every color. I have a rainbow colored closet. đŸ˜‰ I know most of you are already aware of this TV gig but just in case somebody is new to my blog.

    The Best Choker Necklace Trends How to Wear a Choker

I am thinking next time, we need to add maybe another bottle or two and some sunscreen…
