Kathy: From Russia With Love

By Kathy Wallace


Packed and ready for my Christmas-time trip to New York! Basic essential must haves … one large piece of luggage, a fur coat and hat, and leather gloves.

Stylish tall black micro boots for travel, but will later change into comfortable fur-lined winter boots.

I returned to reality, after a week of food and Christmas-light tours, plays, and talk-show tapings, shared with lifelong high-school friends. Following travel and the Christmas holidays, it was time for a walk in solitude, to reflect on 2017 and make plans for a successful 2018!

My go-to nude lipstick is Candid, an apricot nude shade by Tarte, sold at Ulta.

Findings along the journey…a frozen lake…

…and a lovely empty bird’s nest which will hopefully bring spring life very soon.

The Real-Real Behind the Scenes

I picked up this darling new hat at Century 21 on my trip to New York City. It’s my hot chocolate-drinking hat.


The Real-Real Behind the Scenes Take Two

Editor Marcie’s Note: All I see when I look at this incredible hat is the straight-up glamour of a Bond Girl!


“I could have given you the world…”

Actually, a Bond Villain – Elektra King!

A Little Background Music

Editor Marcie’s Note: We are reliving today the excitement that is Shirley Bassey singing a Bond song like a boss! You can thank me later for this song being in your head all day.
