When I entered and won a spa vacation getaway from the Jane Iredale cosmetics company, I was thrilled.  As amazing and fabulous as the trip to the Waldorf Astoria in Naples, Florida was, most of my enthusiasm about winning came from the fact that part of the prize was five hundred dollars worth of Jane Iredale cosmetics!

~the berkshires are somewhat removed from the rest of the civilized world, and though, for the most part, thats a very good thing, it can also be a detriment to your desires if they cant be found here.....for me, one of the only downfalls of living in berkshire county, is the lack of good mexican food......yes, there are the run of the mill places, and Continue reading the story "a good mexican(ish) meal, finally….."
