Summer salads are easy to put together and delicious. These three salads are a few of my favorite to prepare at home. Hope you enjoy them.
Spring mix salad, grilled shrimp, candied walnuts, and apples. Marinade for shrimps: olive oil, parsley, crush garlic. Brush shrimps with marinade and grill shrimps until opaque and firm about 8 minutes. Wash and rise spring salad mix. Candied walnuts are available in the salad isle at the grocery store. Cut thin slices of granny smith apples. Assemble salad with other ingredients and serve. Use your favorite light dressing.
All the ingredients are easy to identify in this lobster cobb salad with blue cheese. For easy preparation at home, buy a freshly cooked lobster. There are a few stores that let you choose your lobster and cook it while you finish shopping. Create your own delicious version of a cobb salad.
Grill teriyaki swordfish on a bed of spring mix salad, cherry tomatoes and avocadoes. Marinade one inch swordfish steaks for 10 minutes. Use your favorite teriyaki marinade. Preheat grill to medium-high. Place fish on grill. Grill fish 8 minutes or until cooked to your liking and serve over salad, cherry tomatoes and avocadoes.
Happy Power Monday! Who are the richest self-made women? Guess no more. Forbes recently announced the nation’s top 50 self-made women, measured by their worth. The exclusive list includes CEOs, designers, authors, entrepreneurs, and entertainers. Topping the list is Elizabeth Holmes, the world’s youngest female billionaire. Holmes dropped out of Stanford University to start a blood testing firm Theranos in 2003. The list also includes familiar names: #5 Oprah Winfrey, #31 Diane von Furstenberg , #17 Tory Burch , #49 Judy Sheindlin , better know as Judge Judy.
At #33 Kathy Ireland, is former fashion super model. Licensing her name to thousands of products, from candles to windows. She sells more product than Martha Stewart. Listening to her soft voice on the Today Show, I took note. Here are some of Ireland’s tips to success.
People give up too quickly. HAVE A PASSION FOR YOUR WORK. Don’t make the same mistake twice. Set values, conviction, boundaries. Under promise, over deliver. Find a great mentor.
Happy Monday! With the hot days of summer arriving early (I’m not complaining after a cold winter), one of my favorite fabrics to wear is chambray. Cool cotton and a relaxed look keep me wanting more than just a few of these pieces this summer.
Hard to believe half the year is over. It feels like the perfect time to take inventory, review goals and make adjustments.

Power Monday is about celebrating new opportunities, ideas and yourself. The idea came from my sons, two business entrepreneurs at Babson College. I found they were always excited about Monday mornings. They call it “money making Mondays,” a fresh start to polish, reinvest and create new possibilities, and so Power Monday was a way to pass on the idea to my teen daughter and other women. My hope is to have some fun with business fashion and build on the Power Monday post to include ideas and share lessons from talented women and men in business.
In business you have to look the part. Lucky for us, as women, we have many fashion options.
Warm days are here. No more boots and closed shoes. Time to bare your toes. There are many shoe styles to choose from to complete your look come Monday morning. I found a few slingback pump styles and open toe shoes. But don’t stop here. Polished toes are necessary in the summer. Check out butter London Nail Polish. It’s color without compromise because it does not add formaldehyde, toluene or DBP to any of its nail formulas. I like the coral/pink shades available at Nordstrom.
