Fit, Fierce & Fabulous After 50 - Chief Operating Diva
Chester, PA
  • Divas,

    Today I celebrate my 50th Birthday. I am truly grateful that God has brought me through another year, safe and sound. There have been bumps and bruises along the way, as I am sure there will be many more to come. I have learned that amidst all of the cards, flowers, balloons and gifts, the lasting memories of this birthday come from the time I spent with my friends, family and one very special man.

    I continue to learn many things about myself, among them the joy of living my life according to my values and priorities. My girlfriend asked me today, when I woke up this morning and looked in the mirror, did I have any regrets of the things I had done within the last 72 hours (I am sure that she was referring to my belly piercing). I did not hesitate for a moment on the answer, It was a resounding "NO". A Tru Diva tries to live her life without regret.

    So publicly, I wanted to thank all of those people who made this Diva's 50th Birthday the best that I have ever, ever had.

  • A Tru Diva's Attitude

    June 18, 2009

    It's a cool, dreary and rainy day outside, but inside the sun is shining and the air is warm. It's all in your attitude and A Tru Diva always has a positive attitude.




  • Divas,

    Now that you have gone through your closet and kept those clothes that make your Soul Stir when you look in the mirror, it's time to move on to our next project.

    In order to look Fabulously Divaerish (I know, I know, there is no such word as Divaerish, I made that up:), there are a few basic staples that are "must haves" in every Diva's Closet. These are the clothes that can create many different outfits with the right accessories, etc. So let's begin. We will look at 1 piece in each of our next 11 posts.

    Classic Shirts - I love men’s' shirts. I love the way they fit, I love the way they look and how sexy I feel when I wear them. So when I am looking for shirts, I tend to gravitate towards the men's section of stores. I usually chose shirts with buttons on the sleeve but I am starting to venture out and try shirts with French cuffs. I've been looking for some great cuff links to create a signature style all my own.

    You should find shirts that feel comfortable and look [...]

  • Ever try to figure out exactly what clothes flatter your figure? The key to dressing for your body shape is to enhance your best features and minimize the areas of which you aren’t so fond of. One size does not fit all. You may wear different sizes depending on the designer/manufacturer of the garment.

    So how do you figure out what looks best on you? helps you to figure out how to accentuate the positive and minimize the negative, so no matter what your shape or size, you can always look great in clothes that reflect the Real Diva in you.

  • I live in an apartment. I have one closet in my bedroom and one closet in my hallway. I probably had about two hundred outfits and 100 pair of shoes, boots and sandals between those closets. Yet, I would wake up in the morning and say to myself, I have absolutely nothing to wear today. Then my self talk would kick in and I would say to me, “What is your problem? You have a million and one things in the closet and you have nothing to WEAR?

    I always thought the solution was that I needed a bigger place, you know, those walk in closets that celebrities have? The real problem:  I had too much stuff. I had clothes that I brought back in 1985 that I had worn probably about 5 times over 24 years.  I could never imagine getting rid of anything in my closet.

    Now, this is where I make a confession. I am a shopaholic. I buy things even when I don’t need them. It was/is a way to make me feel better about myself. And it did, for a little while, and then I would have to go shopping agai [...]

    A Tru Diva Knows


    Did you know that “A Tru Diva” knows that she doesn’t know everything? A Tru Diva surrounds herself with positive people doing positive things. I am in the process of planning my business: an online handbags, shoes and accessories boutique. I know that I don’t know everything, so I have surrounded myself with women who are creating positive things in their lives and in their communities.

    I invite you to join me in getting to know these fabulous women and in creating your Fabulous Life. Check out the following organizations and get your “Tru Divaness” on.

  • Hello. Welcome to “The Diva’s Closet”. Come on in and hang around for a while. See what’s in my closet.

    I love being “A Tru Diva”, inside and out. I live life on my own terms and try to always be true to my inner voice. I still have work to do, but I am always in the game. I turn 50 in just 36 days-let the PARTY begin. I am looking forward to this 2nd half of my life. In fact, I’m starting now. Why wait?

    I LOVE SHOPPING. I am a Fashion Diva. I have a style all of my own. My style can be described as Classic, Chic, Stylish and Unique. What I don’t want: trying to look like I am 21 or even 31. I like Classic clothes accented by bold and unique accessories. I am a Shoe Fanatic, Handbag Hound and Jewelry Junkie.

    I won’t mortgage my future to look good. I love being a financially fit Diva. I live with a spending plan. I make a list of priorities (shopping and traveling) in my life and I set aside money every month for those priorities. I always pay myself first (savings) and then pay [...]

Please Wait
