sitelogoovalAs you know, and have been providing advice and information about the “little things” that help make life easier, more successful, and more fun, for more than two decades, actually, since 1995, when my twin sister Jessica and I wrote our first dating and relationship book called Recruiting Love: Using the Business Skills You Have to Find the Love You Want.  But after Jessica tragically and suddenly died, I stopped doing the sort of “Double-Take”  two views (head and heart) Q&A advice that we became famous for.  I just didn’t want to do that signature format without her.  The Advice Sisters web site became what it is today, a beauty, fashion and lifestyle website. And that’s just how it will continue!

Tony and I hope you are checking out our weekly reader questions and our articles, and soon, we will be adding reviews, a blog, and other things about dating, love, friendship, and all sorts of relationship issues. We hope you’ll stop by and comment, perhaps add a question of your own (you can read our privacy policy to learn just how we ensure no one will ever know it is you who sent in a question).

COMING SOON: LEATHER AND LACE SPICE –  And, because the world is a varied, complicated place, we have also started working on Leather and Lace SPICE.  This site will feature content of a more mature nature  not quite suitable for younger readers (you will have to be of legal age to enter the site).  While it will be tasteful, and serious (not pornographic), we feel that there are valid issues that are of importance to adults and that they need to be represented online in a thoughtful, intelligent and responsible manner.  Some of what we feature on Leather and Lace SPICE might be offensive to people who are not open minded.  We are respectful of our readers but we don’t legislate people’s morals or values.  If you want to know when Leather and Lace SPICE is live, follow us on Twitter @leatherlacspice and we’ll let you know when it’s ready for viewing.  Also follow Leather and Lace Advice @leatherlaceadv

After so many years online, and so many changes in my personal life, this takes courage. I admit, it’s a bit out of my personal comfort zone, but I believe it’s the right time to do this, and I hope you will agree. I hope that you, my readers, will support me and also be honest with your feedback. It’s ok if you don’t like what I’m doing, but the worst thing for me would be silence.   Writing without any feedback is the worst thing ever….please….let me know what you think of LALA (that’s leather and lace advice) and when SPICE arrives, if it’s not your thing, say so. In life, if you don’t try something new, if you don’t move forward, you can’t evolve in your life and career.  So I hope I will be an inspiration to anyone who feels “stuck” to do something that inspires them — even if it seems a bit unlikely, a bit wild, or it doesn’t fit with the same old, same old. You are never too old to try something new!


I wish you love, success & happiness
