Things I have Been Loving, Mani Monday and Another Spring Jewelry Show!

This month has been a good one I can say that as it comes to a close tomorrow. Our Trio was booked four times already and we just started with that Musical Adventure...  I do look forward to May as it is my Birthday Month, My Mom's Birthday Month,My Mother in-law's Birthday Month My Friend Mary's Birthday Month, My Friend Donna's Birthday Month/Wedding Anniversary to her hubby and Mother's Day, which is also a very special May Event.  Jimi and I have a lot going on in May involving our Band too...We are participating in a Benefit for The Pittsburgh Police Fallen Officers, The Pittsburgh Marathon, Nationality Day's Event and a few other bookings!  Whew!  A lot going on I'd say!  Anyway, I have been loving  several things in the month of April....One of which was the score of the century!!!! Watch this video to see what that is. is Monday...Mani Monday!  I have been adoring this look!

I talk about how much I am loving this look here:

Lastly, Yesterday  I participated in displaying my Spring Gypsy Jewelry Collection in another Show.  It was a great time!!! Participating in this event as either a vendor or by taking part in the Chinese Auction held, helped to support Autism Awareness.  I was happy to be a part of this event and made some new friends♥

 Jimi is always such a great help and my Biggest Fan!!! I Love Him!!!♥♥♥ I was able to network with so many people while he took care of business at my display.

 Carol, one of the Ladies I met at the show...she and I had such a great time chatting!! take a peek at the scarf she is wearing...oh so lovely!  She had a whole table display of these.

A great day and a great month indeed!!!

I hope that things have been going well in your world too!

Much Love,

Breakfast,Coffee,Chit Chat,DIY and of Course, Kitties!

Last week, my Friend Donna and I met for Breakfast at my house.  I cooked farm fresh brown eggs that were gifted to Jimi and me from our friends Robin and Roger when we made candles with them.

  Donna cooked our bacon...she taught me a little trick that makes cooking bacon so much easier....hmmm, maybe a DIY on that? Yeah, I am thinking that would be cool, so I won't reveal the trick as of yet.  Patience, my friends!  I will have to get together with Donna to film the Bacon Trick Video.  Anyway, breakfast was yummy.

 We filmed a DIY Video on how to make a sugar lip scrub.The Kitty Committee had to join in, of course!   Jump on over to my YouTube Channel to see it.

 It was such fun to film with her again!  I think it has been since Christmas time that we did the last one.

I have also posted a couple of other video's this past week....this is one I filmed about a few Avon purchases.

Our Trio Band has been busy as of late..we played this weekend at a local Club and had a blast!!!

Tip Thursday..Easy Spa Treatment At Home For Hands and Nails

The other day, my Friend Donna came over for breakfast and we filmed a DIY on how to make sugar scrub.

The sugar scrub we made was created with fine sugar, so it is suitable for being a lip scrub.  The DIY video on how to create this scrub will be coming please keep an eye out for it on my YouTube Channel and here too.  While creating this scrub, we thought that it would also be fabulous as a hand scrub.  So, here is today's tip....
Use a small amount of fine sugar scrub on your hands, massage in to skin and focus on nails and cuticles.  It is best to have someone do this for you so that they can massage it in...aahhhh, it feels sooooo good!!!!  Next rinse in warm water and towel dry your hands.   You will be amazed at how wonderful your hands feel and look!
 I recommend this as a weekly treat.

Much Love,
Milady Leela

Fabulous Fashion Finds

In my last post, I shared that my Daughter Nikki and I spent the day together enjoying lunch and shopping at our local Thrift Shoppe.  I was hoping to be able to film a video with her sharing her fashion finds too but her schedule did not allow,,,,she is a busy girl.  I did however film my fashion finds.  Visit my YouTube Channel to see what I came home with.  The Video is entitled "Fabulous Fashion Finds Thrift Shoppe Haul"  Take a peek at a few treasures included in this treasure Hunt.  This one is not a fashion find but I picked up this wall tile to add to my Hallway Photo Display Wall.  It is super cool...don't ya think?

Also I found this 70's inspired golden Basket Weave Ring...Love this!

Please visit my YouTube Channel to find the video...I hope you enjoy it♥  Let me know what you think in a comment.

I think I may now have to gain some more closet space...oohhhh that is a project in the future I want to dive into!  I have a plan in mind to use a spare bedroom...creating it to be my dressing room.  Aahhh...that is what I want and need!  Do you have your own dressing room?  If so, do you love it?

Shopping is always so much fun at our Local Thrift Shoppe!! Do you like to look for treasures at the Thrift Store too?  Let me know, I would love to hear about it!

Much love,

Foodie Friday!

This past week, my Daughter Nikki and I spent the day together.  We had such a lovely time!!!!  We enjoyed a yummy lunch at a Pittsburgh Pa well known restaurant....Primanti Bother's.  Classically known for piling coleslaw and hand cut fries on top of a sandwich, it is truly a tasty treat for the pallet.

I had a garden burger and it was amazing!!!

My Daughter had a chicken sandwich of which she really enjoyed!
Later we went shopping and came home with some fabulous Fashion Finds from our Local Thrift Shoppe!

It was a Beautiful Day!

Much Love,

Hi there!!!  In the last post, I mentioned that I would be beginning a new musical project.  In addition to our Five piece Band, Jimi now books us as a duo/trio.  Friday was our Debut in our home town and on Saturday we traveled to Franklin, Pa...both nights went very well!!!!  We look forward to filling our schedule with this new project.  This new project gives Jimi and I the ability to stay working during the week and on weekends if the full Band is not booked. 

In other Musical notes.... The original song we are working on is coming along!!!! I am now working on the vocals and just completed 19 harmonies. ...this week we hope to finish the main vocals and the song will soon be finished!!! I am so anxious to share it with soon as it is done and we complete the copyright, the song will be shared everywhere we can share it!!! Please stay tuned for that!!!

Something else I wanted to share is that I have been wearing my hair straight this past week. Tell me what you think!!! Do you like it straight or curly? I love it straight but it takes so long to get it that way!

 I have also added another Haul video onto my YouTube Channel

Please visit there and check out what I have been up to, my Channel has a new look...I would love for you to subscribe if you have not done so already.

Just so you know, I am going to be getting together with my Friend Donna this week to film a couple of DIY video' has been a while since we have done that together so look for those kind of videos again on my channel soon.

What has been keeping you busy as of late? I would love to know!!

Hauling Jewelry!!!!

Hello there my Friends!  I have been consumed with Jewelry, well truthfully I have always been.  I have quite a collection.  So many of my pieces have been with me since I was in High School...which (Cough,Cough) has been a very long time!  In addition to the jewelry that I design and create, I also still find pieces to buy.  Is that a surprise? I think not.  I know that many of you are like that too.  I recently did some shopping and found a few pieces that I would like to share with you.  Watch this video to see the lovely finds I found and stay tuned for another video soon.

 In my next one I will share a mix of  a few things that I know you will really enjoy also.  You can visit me anytime at for the most recent uploads.  I would love for you Subscribe too....that would so make me smile!

In My World

In My world, I have been so busy over the last few months and see that it is probably going to continue that way.  The Band is going through some changes again as we are searching for a new Bass Player.  In addition, Jimi has begun to book us musically in parts too...for example, He books us as a five piece Band, a duo or a trio.  So with that being said, the duo is Marty(our Guitar player) and me and the trio is Jimi(drums) Marty(Guitar) and Me on Vocals. This diversify's  us and keeps us working!  We have our first trio gig this Friday!

Then on Saturday, we have our first duo gig.

Also, I have been working hard on creating video's for my Channel along with making Jewelry for my next Spring Show.  Below is a video I filmed at the Jewelry Reveal Show.  I had written a blog post about it a bit ago but thought that you may like to see how things looked in video below you can watch to see♥

I have also recently filmed a Haul video of  some products I simply could not resist...visit here to see that.

Just in case you are wondering, I do post video's a couple times or more each week.  I would love for you to visit me on YouTube by subscribing to my Channel for the most recent uploads.  Not sure if you know that my making video's for YouTube is also another way that allows me to not only pay my bills but share information with you and hopefully entertain you at the same time.  So I do really appreciate your support so much!!!! I love you all for following me in all of my venture's!!

Yesterday was Easter and we had a lovely day!!! I hope you all did too! 
I put together an Easter Basket for my Grand-Daughter Summer...she Love's DORA!!!!

Did you make Easter Baskets this year?  I would love to hear about them or see some of your Photo's. to continue organizing my Studio....that is the plan for today♥

Much Love,
Milady Leela
