Karen showed us the immovable lip color Lipscense. She began promoting the product after making a plea to friends to share their small business ventures so she could shop small for holiday gifting and didn't look back. It's truly something amazing to see in person. Find out more here: https://www.senegence.com/SeneSite/Home.aspx

Virginia is for lovers and there are plenty of places that are romantic enough to make you fall in love a hundred times over. I have some suggestions on places to have a romantic moment, with your Valentine, wether you have been together a few weeks, or 50 years.
I will always write about food, and some of the tastiest options you have in Hampton Roads are literally driving around right now. I'm not going to pretend that I haven't cut someone off to get to some random food truck that I didn't realize was in a bank parking lot, or parked along a waterway that I didn't realize was a meeting spot.
Here are a few trucks that you should check out if see them out and about.
If you want to stalk food trucks, check out Yelp or 757 Eat the Streets www.ets757.com/ to see where they are hosting Food Truck Meetups and Rodeos.
Yes, I am a Yankee. I say “Pop” and don’t drink sweet tea. I have to say that although there are wonderful things about living somewhere the blankets of snow stretch as far as the eye can see for months out of the year, I don’t miss the cold. This year it's like the region can't decide what season it's in, week to week and so we have to be prepared for hot or cold in the same week. I have some tricks to keep warm even when your house is drafty.
I have a historic home. It’s full of charm, with it’s original multi-pane windows and crown molding. The fireplace is original but so are the radiators, so we have some tricks to keep from being chilly when the wind blows hard and shakes those pretty windows that don’t keep warm in or cold out.
If you have any other ideas, I would love to hear them. Give me a shout in the comments or check the post on Facebook at to tell me what you think is the best idea.
I love my house. It's charming, historic and in the heart of Hampton Roads. Living here makes it a challenge to ever stay in for a quiet night because there are so many great places to see in the 7-cities. That's what makes Housewives in the City so exciting. I will be sharing all the local hangouts and hightlighting the best of our area. Join me for life-hacks, restaurant recommendations, festival reviews and the locals hangouts that are off the beaten path. We are so much more than a tourist town. Let me share the side of the cities that aren't in the guidebooks. Along the way, we'll have some laughs and share some memories. I am so excited to begin sharing what I love about this diverse and exciting region. Come along and follow me here or on social media for the trip.
Once a month, we will have a networking social event that rotates between Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Suffolk, Portsmouth and Chesapeake. Every event is free to attend and will have sponsors with amazing giveways available. Join me on Facebook and Instagram to learn more about when and where we will host. Housewives in the City is about bringing people together to make connections and memories.
My name is Starlite, and before you ask, YES! My parents were hippies. I am an artist who has traveled all over the world and settled in Suffolk, VA. It's a quaint part of Hampton Roads that I liken to Mayberry at times.
I am an artist who teaches classes around Hampton Roads and sells private commissions for artwork and murals.
I am a big fan of sarcasm, craft beer & bourbon. I love the water and a good book, ferris wheels, bad dancing and good conversations.
