Things that make me happy


Cindy La Ferle

My personal blog, Things that make me happy, is up and running now. I like to think of it as an online journal, a place where I can share anything that strikes my interest — books I’m reading, a pair of cool shoes, the perfect shade of lipstick, photos of my gardens, places I travel — and anything else I’d share with good friends. The new blog is a sequel to my first photo blog, Something Beautiful Every Day, which concluded this year. To view and subscribe to my new blog, please visit here.

Here in Detroit, there’s no shortage of stylish, creative women. In the May issue of Michigan Prime, I return to the topic of discovering and celebrating our individual style — despite the fact that most fashion magazines still overlook women over 50. For this story, I interviewed several local women of style, including Sandra Rome, the owner of Studio Sandra, a tres-chic boutique in Royal Oak. 

Look for the magazine in your Sunday Detroit Free Press this weekend, or click here to read the feature online.
