Welcome to the site!

I am Valya S. Lee, a retired educator and fashion enthusiast turn fashion influencer, stylist and lifestyle blogger. The purpose for RAS  is to encourage and empower other mature women to look, feel and be their best. This endeavor is also a means of  telling brand stories through creative content and product reviews while making my retirement fun and engaging. 

They say variety is the spice of life, and that has certainly been the case for me in 2022. Not only have I enjoyed styling a variety of outfits, I’ve also enjoyed engaging and interacting with a variety of amazing content creators and influencers as well as my Facebook friends and followers. I offer sincere thanks to everyone who follow, like, comment and share, and especially those who have patronized my sales an offerings. It all has meant the world to me. I am blessed beyond measure and eternally grateful for the village that continues to encourage and inspire me. May God continue to bless each of you in all of your endeavors in 2023 and may you prosper and shine like never before.
