If you are looking for a unique holiday gift during your last-minute shopping, Valerie Bertinelli has launched a namesake, boutique line of apparel and home accessories.

The Valerie Bertinelli line of pajamas, sweaters, candles, picture frames and more is in limited release, but you may be able to find some items at your local TJ Maxx, Marshalls and Home Goods

"I got a long blue sweater with a ruffled front at Marshalls - it looks great with my jeans - and I've had so many compliments on it," said Kathy Slusher, a fan from upstate New York. "My friend liked it so much, I wanted to get her one for Christmas, but I haven't been able to find it since then."

Because the items sell so quickly, Valerie recommends speaking to the store manager at your local TJ Maxx, Marshalls or Home Goods to find out when their delivery date is and to see if the store can get more items from the line.

"I've tried to select things that I really like, things that I would wear and use," Valerie said. "There aren't a whole lot of items, but there is some really cute stuff!"

There are three phases to organizing a photo album or online gallery - and we've finally arrived at the fun part: Putting it all together. 

Sorting your photos - choosing which you'll display and which you'll discard - is the hardest part. Organizing your final bunch of display photos is just one degree of difficulty below that, but it's all worthwhile when you get to build your album, photobook or online gallery! Plus you get to go shopping (online or in-stores), and retail therapy has been known to brighten a dull day.

First, decide what you're going to do: Analog or digital?


Valerie’s Photo Album How-To, Part 2 PDF Print E-mail

So it’s been a while since you sorted through all of those photos in your closet, and the satisfaction of that achievement is beginning to wear off. You have a collection of technically sound, evocative images for Display purposes; you have a pile of Discards that you’ll never have to see again, and you have a file of Reserve photos that might work as filler, but you’re not going to stress about them too much.

It’s time for Phase 2 of Operation Preserve Your Memories: Organizing Your Images.

I know, I know, I know: You thought you already did that when you divided up these photos into Display, Discard and Reserve categories. Wasn’t that getting organized? No, young grasshopper, that was just thinning the herd of available resources. Here’s where the real work - and the real fun - begins: Organization.

My Very Best Bets: Cal-a-Vie Health Spa PDF Print E-mail

I think I've found heaven on earth. It's called Cal-a-Vie Health Spa. Tucked among rolling hills just north of San Diego, this rustic retreat is where I spent some time recharging, reflecting and relaxing before we start taping the third season of Hot in Cleveland. In fact, several of my fellow spa guests joined me to watch the Season 2 finale - it's so much fun to laugh with others and enjoy the show with a community of friends. Whether it's taking a spa retreat for a few days or stealing a half-hour for a manicure or just taking a moment to appreciate the sunset, I believe in making time to nurture myself. Thank you to the wonderful staff at Cal-a-Vie for helping me on this journey!
