An INFP’s/ HSP’s Musings of Food, Fashion and Body Image

I was born a healthy baby in NYC in 1957. However, a few short weeks after I was born, I started losing weight.

Love is Blue?

I was immediately transported to a different time and place when the instrumental version of “Love is Blue” by Paul Mauriat came on. There were many versions of this song- everyone of them tugged at my heart. TheContinue reading “Love is Blue?”

My Life As An Introvert

My earliest memory: I was about two and a half years old outside of our garden apartment complex in Great Neck clutching my adored teddy bear, while sitting on the wooden bench with my twenty-five year old mother.
