I rarely follow celebrities on Twitter because of snooze-ville tweets like this. I much prefer to get my dose of daily news and commentary from journalists and other witty average Joes and Janes of the world. This Sunday, March 2, marks the 86th Annual Academy Awards, the day when fancy-pants celebs in grand gowns and suits descend upon Hollywood's Dolby Theatre and pretend they've not disowned carbs for the past two months.

A well-fitted button up shirt can do wonders for a woman’s figure, in my humble opinion. Done right, it buttons without gaping, hugs the lines of her back and sides without bulging, shows off her lovely hourglass shape and strikes a very sophisticated and polished cut of her jib. Too often, though, the fit is not correct, and both gaps and bulges are present, which is probably why many women have sworn off fitted tops that button up the front. I know I have for the most part, opting instead for looser fitting blouses and knitted tops.

The real brunt of winter is hopefully behind us, and our winter was no polar vortex, but the dry and itchy skin that results from being inside with the heater cranked has just been brutal this season. Kiehl’s, one of my favorite American heritage brands, has just launched two new products, sent from heaven to relieve the parched visage that stares back from the mirror each morning.

If you didn’t know it, Seattle and Reykjavik, Iceland, are sister cities. Recently, in a bit of sibling communing, Daniel Brancusi, who is the brand ambassador for Iceland’s Reyka vodka, came to town to promote the city connection, as well as to talk about the vodka. He even made some Seahawks drinks on local TV – realizing that to really be sibling cities, the Icelandic folks needed to back our local heroes. While he was here, I had a chance to sit down and talk to him about the two cities, vodka, a few great drink recipes and more.
