What are your every day, must-reads, online or off?

You were recently on the Martha Stewart show!  What was that like?!

JoJami: That was exciting to be able to bring Fabulous After 40 to the attention of a national audience! Not to mention meeting Martha Stewart was very exciting. I’ve been a big fan of hers for years. She was just gorgeous, very tall and elegant! 

Deborah: It was wonderful to have JoJami represent us on Martha Stewart. I know how exciting it must have been for her. I was a TV producer and host for over 20 years and had my own series, Backyard Pleasures, on HGTV! Co-incidentally it was a home and garden show and much of our inspiration came from Martha.

What’s your go-to outfit when you’re in a hurry?
JoJami: Always some type of dress! I love dresses, and I wear them almost everyday.
Deborah: Black skinny pants and a bright cute top with a smart fitted jacket.

If you could give your 16 year old self advice, what would you say?
JoJami: Don’t ignore the nerdy guys. They are the ones that are going to be ruling the world!

Deborah: I would tell her that life is a mirror and what you give out, you get back. Put out love, positive thoughts and hard work and good things will come back to you.

Your perfect day.  What would it look like?
JoJami: The day would be warm and sunny. I would wake up early and go to a yoga class. I would come home shower and go out to lunch with a girlfriend. Then we would go for a hike or go to a museum. I think a massage would be in there somewhere and that night would cook a meal for my husband and we would eat outside. Then go out to a concert or movie. I would not turn on my cell phone or computer the entire day. What a treat!

Deborah: A hot sunny, dry day. I’d go for a walk along the water with my husband, stop for a cup of tea and light breakfast and admire the view. Go do a little shopping at some interesting store I have always wanted to visit. A spa afternoon with a girlfriend would follow. We’d have a tasty lunch, some exotic spa treatment and a killer massage would be wonderful. After that.. a beautifully prepared family meal with my husband at a charming outdoor patio restaurant -Italian food, a glass of wine and lots of conversation and laughter. Then my husband and I would go off and see a great movie with lots of popcorn.

Thanks so much for sharing, ladies!
