A few other  lil things about me:

I like  vodka tinis (evidenced by pix at right!),  cucumbers, rare-t-bone steaks, Oreos and Carrie Bradshaw/Sex in the City...I Iove her fashion, stilletos & her sayings which inspired me to create my Julie-isms....a part of my new journey with you that begins here cause....


 I AM BACK after a bit of a hiatus reNewed & energized to continue uniting, inspiring, sharing good enough home hacks, self care tips & sanity savers...And my new favorite passion: finding & sharing new ways to use everyday items that will have you saying 'whodathunk" or "is this gal crazy" and yip I am!!!


The goal:  to help you laugh & smile more, lighten your day to day load whomever you are:  mom, spouse, professional, millennial, sandwich gen or retiree  without feeling guilt nor needing skills we don't have nor desire!
