• Throwback Thursday and a Throwback with Kitty Chloe

    [dropcap custom_class=”normal”] H [/dropcap]appy Throwback Thursday everyone! Here is a picture of my kitty, Chloe when she was about six months old. She liked to sit on my desk while I was working and she would sleep with me at night— sleeping on my chest and waking me up in the morning by licking my face. She is more independent now and stays up night looking for mice.

    When The Healthy, Wealthy and Successful—Kill Themselves

    [dropcap custom_class=”normal”] I [/dropcap] n the last few years the fashion world was twice shaken to it’s core by unexpected suicides. First in February 2011 with the death of Alexander McQueen and a second time earlier this year by the death of L’Wren Scott. On the surface both of them seemed to have it all.
