WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS

Saturday, December 31, 2016

50 IS NOT OLD | WHAT ARE YOUR GOALSI don’t really like resolutions. I have made plenty of them in the past but I couldn’t recall very many of them now. The reason I can’t recall them is because I probably didn’t stick with them. Who hasn’t made the resolution to lose weight or get in shape? If you are skinny and in great shape maybe that resolution is not for you. How about the resolution to save money or go to church more? This year I am NOT making any resolutions! Instead, I am making goals.50 IS NOT OLD | WHAT ARE YOUR GOALSI hear all the time that before you ever reach a goal, you need to first voice that goal. You need to say what you want and write it down. This is supposed to be some sort of visual method that works on your brain. It may not have any magic but I can see how it could help. I am going to be very specific with my goals and you should be also. Instead of saying I want to lose weight, say I want to lose 10 pounds in the month of January. Instead of saying I want to save money, say I want to save 1500.00 by the end of June. I am breaking mine down into categories. Health (eating right, drinking water, etc) Beauty (wash face every night, try a bright lipstick, etc)  Professional (increase blog subscribers, build Plunder and R & F team, etc) Marriage (be sweeter, have more date nights, etc) Friends (call more, listen more, etc) Finances (save all your $5.00 bills, do more needs and less wants, etc) Weight (exercise more, eat less, etc) Faith (read a daily devotional, go to church, etc) Fashion (wear more color, step outside my comfort zone, etc) and Travel (go to Alaska, hike the Appalachian trail, etc). These are not MY goals, they are just examples of goals. 50 IS NOT OLD | WHAT ARE YOUR GOALSOther than my hair being a little flat, I like this outfit. I have noticed that I have been wearing lots of black and gray in the last month or so. Most of you know that I love color so I have no idea why I have been embracing the dark side. At least this time I did give the look at little jolt with this bright red vest from Joan Rivers. I bought this at least a year ago from the QVC overstock outlet in town. I liked that the vest was longer and I liked the black leather accents on the pockets. Remember when you are out shopping to look for special details or accents to make your purchase more unique.

While I was looking for a long vest I came across a wide variety of red puffer vests. I was amazed at the difference in cost. I am linking to three jackets. One of the jackets is around 50.00 dollars and the other two are over 350.00. Can you pick out the expensive ones? Would you pay the difference?

50 IS NOT OLD | WHAT ARE YOUR GOALSFlat hair withstanding, I still wanted to show you my earrings. They are my favorites!!! The Mason by Plunder. I am happy to say that I have had a couple of you join me in my Plunder team and I am hoping that more will join in the upcoming year. To join me in Plunder go to www.plunderdesign.com/taniastephens to place an order you go to www.plunderdesign.com/party/50isnotold50 IS NOT OLD | WHAT ARE YOUR GOALSI hate that you can’t see the sparkle of this piece. I need to figure out how to do video so you can see the sparkle and the shine. This Joey necklace and the Hugo and Ezra bracelets have plenty of “bling!” To place an order you go to www.plunderdesign.com/party/50isnotold
50 IS NOT OLD | WHAT ARE YOUR GOALSI am wearing dark gray tights instead of leggings. What’s the difference? Tights have feet and are not quite as thick. Other than that, they are about the same. I also have a pair of my favorite black booties on. No, they are not the only black booties I own, but the other ones are suede wedges. These are a Marc Fisher pair that I bought at the outlet store.

50 IS NOT OLD | WHAT ARE YOUR GOALSIf you are wondering about the tunic I am wearing, it is oneI bought last year at a craft fair. This is by Cherish. Here is where I wore the tunic in February, similar but different.

Okay, I want to give a quick lesson in fashion and photography. Look at the picture above and then look at the picture below.50 IS NOT OLD | WHAT ARE YOUR GOALSThis is the same day, the same outfit, and the same camera. Do you think one looks different than the other? I think the bottom one makes me look thinner. I am all the time telling you about jackets and blazers, how they can make you look thinner, here is a prime example. The one above has the vest wide apart and the one below has the vest closer together. The one that is wider apart shows more gray and looks larger and the one that is closer together shows less gray and more of the red. Look how much thinner I look in that picture. It is a matter or perspective.50 IS NOT OLD | WHAT ARE YOUR GOALSWhat are your resoutions, goals, or tweaks?The Lash Boost holiday special from Rodan and Fields officially ends on Monday, if supplies last. I think the Lash Boost will still be available at the same price, you just won’t get the free Lashes bag and mini eye cream. If you were thinking about ordering it anyway, then you might as well take advantage of the free items while they are available. ALSO, if you place an order as a PC, I will refund you $10.00!!!

The Lash Boost has worked wonders. I even use it on my eyebrows and I can tell the biggest difference there. My eyebrows look much fuller and darker than they ever did before. To order Rodan and Fields, go to www.tstephens5.myrandf.com Lash Boost is under the featured tab.

Can you see yourself (or your daughter or granddaughters) taking advantage of an opportunity to “partner” with me? You can join with me on a journey that could be life changing. I am interested in taking on new business partners. I am interested in seeing where these opportunities can take me. SO, I am willing to help you join with me.

Joining Plunder is 99.00. That is not a huge amount of money for starting your own business but I want to make it even easier. If you join Plunder with me, I will offer to pay half of your kit back to you. If you are interested, then email me for the details at fiftyisnotold@gmail.com

Joining Rodan and Fields has three levels you can join at. If you join me in my business with at least the 395.00 kit, I will also offer to reimburse you half of your kit back to you. You could start a business and only have 200.00 invested, email me for the details at fiftyisnotold@gmail.com

Opportunities come in different forms and sometimes they come when we aren’t even looking. I can tell you honestly that I am so glad I decided to blindly follow my instincts, even though I had no idea where it was taking me. I can’t wait to see where it is taking me next. Come join me.

Anytime you would like to share my posts on Facebook or Twitter, I would appreciate that. It helps get my blog out to more people, and I am sure you just want to spread the entertaining sayings I have. Lol!

The comment section is at the end of the post, so keep scrolling. I look forward to reading all the comments, they make my day.

    My goal for 2017 is to live in the moment. Instead of worrying about yesterday or willing tomorrow to come I’m going to try to enjoy ‘today’. Life is rushing past so quickly, I want to make sure I savour every day. Happy New Year to you and all of your readers x

    Great look!! My yearly goal for 2017 is to save more and spend less…First grandchild coming in January and it’s time to start putting aside money for her in a trust fund. So I will be shopping my closet in 2017! Any tips for me? Happy New Year to you and your family 🎉🍾🎉🍾!

      Donna, you just need to be creative with your closet. If you always wear a shirt with a black pair of pants, then try a blue pair or a brown pair, or even add a cardigan. Be sure to set aside a set amount to save each week or it will just be absorbed in something and you still won’t save.

    Happy New Year! My goal for 2017 is to finally reach my Weight Watcher goal and it’ll take a lot of effort since I’ve been slacking off this fall. It will be worth it.

    I have the same Joan Rivers vest in camel and love your styling. Tights aren’t for me but leggings would work. Seeing how nicely the red pairs with gray makes me want to pick up the red, too. You always give me great ideas to upgrade my look.

    Tania, any idea how much shipping would be on the Mason Earrings and Joey Necklace. Plunder requires you go all the way with payment info before they tell you the shipping. I have been admiring these 2 pieces for sometime. Thanks

      Rhonda, the shipment is normally 6.95 for orders under 98.00.

    Goals instead of resolutions is a marvelous idea and your “perspectives” lesson on dressing slimmer was fabulous. Thanks for all your inspirations and wishing you a wonderful start on the new year.

    I have read this and heard it several times in the last few days. Most people set TOO MANY goals and that leads to failure because we can’t spread our energy out to accomplish 8 or 9 things. It is better to have 3-4 goals at most because it helps you FOCUS your energy and you are more likely to accomplish your goals. Sounds wise to me and more doable!

    My goal is to be an American NInja Warrior! Haha!! I’ll be happy if I can just keep up my regular workouts and get my inflexible self into a yoga class. I love reading your blog everyday. Thanks for all the outfit inspiration. I’m even thinking about switching up my usual jeans for a pair of Pixie pants once in awhile. Happy New Year to you and your family!!
