I AM LOOKING FOR YOU


" I stand for Freedom of Expression.  Doing what you believe in and going after your Dreams." - Madonna

Are YOU a great writer, Mommy, gardener, cook, designer, ant catcher (LOL), etc..., if so, The Roxy Report is looking for you.  I am in the process of giving The Roxy Report some legs.  I would love to have "The Roxy Report Reporters."  The contribution can be as minimal or as often as you like.  We all lead busy lives, but self expression is one of the keys to happiness (well for me it is!) so if you are interested, email me at TheRoxyReport77@gmail.com.



XOXO,
Rox







Bringing Books to El Barrio

Bringing Books to El Barrio


I love the smell of a fresh and nuevo libro (brand new book). Check out this really cool article which gives various outlooks on not only the unfortunate reality of where book stores have gone, but especially the major hit our neighborhoods have taken.

Makes me think, have real books, with pages that you can physically flip through seen their last days?

I remember having a conversation with a mom (her son is 10 years young) during the big October Snow Storm of 2011 where 85% of Connecticut lost power for at least 7 days. She was telling me how distraught and sad her son was, to the verge of tears, because he simply didn't know what to do with himself without the internet, TV or Video Games. The thought that he didn't want to play outside or a take out a board game or hmmm maybe read a book, was baffling. Have our kids lost the sense of internal mental growth? Or will them being so technically savvy make them one of the smartest generations ever? I wonder.

XOXO,
Rox

FLASSES...UP NEXT




As you may have noticed that I currently LOVE for FLASSES! Si (Yes) FLASSES, Fake Glasses. Every girl should have at least one pair of Flasses.  They are one of the best statement accessories.  Add a little flare with a quick frame.  They give you the room to have fun, add color, get brave!
