Why I Still Write #CouragetoWrite


At least a few times a week, usually in the midst of a complete meltdown, I have a conversation with myself.  It generally goes like this:

Me: *wailing*  I don’t want to write anything.  I don’t have anything to write.  I’ve lost my voice.

Self:  Don’t be silly.  You have a LONG list of things that you have to write about.

Me:  Yeah, but.  But it all feels so wrong.  How can I write on a blog called Jewel’s Fab Life, when Jewel’s life is so far from FAB that it even funny?  What’s FAB about having cancer?  What’s FAB about Read more »

After an early morning sendoff ceremony at Port Everglades, we were boarded and headed to our cabins to drop off our belongings before Read more »

Meet Michonne, My New Samsung Note 4


As most of you know, I’m quite brand loyal when it comes to my personal gadgets and devices.  About a year ago(and after a 10 year relationship), I broke up with my cell phone manufacturer.  After careful research, I figured that I would join the Droid movement.  That began my relationship with Samsung.  Since then, I’ve amassed a collection of Samsung devices.  In fact, in the last week and a half, I’ve added a new Samsung Note 4 and a cute new Samsung WB350F Smart Point & Shoot.  I call them Michonne and Katana, since Read more »
