If you love vintage-era styling, and love to cook, organize, travel, and entertain, then I might have what you’re looking for.
I began this blog as a supplemental content to my book, Hosting With Style- Beretta Fleur’s Guide To Parties & Homemaking, and as way for my readers from other various websites and magazines to connect with me. While I no longer post here regularly, the blog is still archived and the book is still available for purchase.
Just a quick blog today to give a heads up that I will be calling in today at 10:45 EST on Not So Soccer Mom radio! We’ll be discussing Ninja Hosting and the pinup lifestyle! Listen in! We’re LIVE at 10am EST! 🙂
Another of my articles is live on OffBeat Home & Life. This one is called Wills and Trusts: What are Your Plans? and it’s something I wrote several months ago while paying a last visit to a dying family friend.
The topic is a little more somber than what I usually approach, but a good thing to dialogue about in every household. Have a look, and be sure to read the comments, some good stuff in there.
This article is dedicated to Grammy W., who I love and miss. Thank you for your memories, and thank you for including me in your family and life. ❤
