YARD SALE FINDS

Thursday, February 23, 2017

50 IS NOT OLD | YARD SALE FINDSI want to say that I am thrilled that I got in a new computer!!! I am doing my happy dance because I have been looking and looking for a new computer. I knew that I wanted to get a Mac laptop but that was as much as I knew. I looked at the brand new Mac laptop but it didn’t come with a SD card slot or any USB slots and with the blog I really needed those items. You can buy an adapter but I didn’t want that hassle. 
50 IS NOT OLD | YARD SALE FINDSThere is a learning curve anytime you change computers even if it is just a software update. However when you completely change computers it is crazy. I spent an hour uploading and downloading apps and programs that I had on my other computer. One of the things that I hadn’t planned on being an issue was the iPhotos. If you are looking at these pictures and thinking they look different it is because I have not learned how to navigate the adjust features of the photos. I can see that they look too dark and I should have lightened then a little more. I will learn but I can tell you that my sister is getting a call today. She is a photographer and has a Mac so she is my go-to person. She may be the little sister but I rely on her immensely. 50 IS NOT OLD | YARD SALE FINDSAt least my jewelry looks good even if it is too dark. I love this cross necklace (Nellie) but I had lost it for a long time. I had just finally decided that I was going to break down and order it again when I found it. It had fallen off the necklace rack I have and was under the dresser. I don’t know why I didn’t think to look there. Lol! You all know about my BELIEVE necklace. I bought it in Georgia at a little tea shop on the square. It is by Monarch Inspirations and I found that brand on Amazon50 IS NOT OLD | YARD SALE FINDSThe Pray pendant is one that I added to this bracelet. The red bracelet was a special for Monday Madness but the Tylie is just like it except it is brown. I have all my boho bangles on, I love my bangles. I heard they are being retired so if you want any you need to get them before they are all sold out. There is less than a week left in this month, so don’t forget that I am offering 15% off Plunder on orders over 50.00, I will send you a check for the discount. In fact checks are going out tomorrow for all the purchases that have been made over the last week or so. Go to www.plunderdesign.com/party/tania1 to shop from Plunder.50 IS NOT OLD | YARD SALE FINDSThis tunic is one that I bought at a yard sale when I went to Georgia to visit. I think I paid 5.00 for this and since I have worn it twice I think that it has already paid for itself. I don’t know if this print reminds me of southwestern prints or if it looks like Owl-Eyes. What do you think? I wore a pair of dark gray tights under the tunic and finished off the look with a pair of mid-rise boots. These are a pair c/o Rialto. Here was where I wore them last year. These boots are called the Coras Tobacco Boot and they also come in black. I like the 3/4 length of this boot. It is not a bootie and it is not a knee boot, it is somewhere in between. 50 IS NOT OLD | YARD SALE FINDSBetween the weather and the new computer I have a raging headache. I am sorry this post is short, but my head is killing me. I am off to bed without supper, I can’t stand the thoughts of eating. I sure hope tomorrow is better because it starts with a payroll audit. How wonderful is that? Lol!

I want to thank those of you who commented that you wanted the R & F sample packs and I will be emailing you soon, it has just been crazy busy and I haven’t had time to do the emails. I want to do them all at once so that I don’t leave anyone out. I also wanted to remind everyone that the Rodan & Fields “Lash Boost Bundle Deal” will be ending soon. This is a 20% discount on the purchase of a regimen of your choice and a Lash Boost bundle. If you signup as a Preferred Customer (or already are one) then you will receive another 10% discount. The enrollment fee to become a Preferred Customer is 19.95 and I will reimburse that back to you PLUS I will send you a mini eye cream. This is a pretty sweet deal! Don’t let the ship sail without you. I saw this on FaceBook today and thought it was really cute.

Part of my 2017 goals is to grow my subscriber list on the blog. The numbers are really starting to go up and I had decided that when I hit 5000 subscribers I will be having a giveaway. I’m not that far off, so if you are not a subscriber PLEASE take the time to sign. Also, if 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 love everything about this outfit Tania, another favourite. I hope your head has cleared, I swear by lavender oil. I put a couple of drops onto a tissue and inhale a couple of times. It helps me sleep too.

    Mac is great but it drives me crazy after working on a business computer all day however, my husband has one and he is a photographer so he has all these fancy software for photography. The end results are beautiful but the process is painful 😖. At this time of year I get sinus headaches when the weather is rainy or cold/hot in a matter of hours so Advil Cold and Sinus to the rescue (the good stuff you buy at the pharmacy counter). Good luck with the audit!

      I love my Mac!!! I am not good with editing photos though. I need to take a course designed toward Mac. I have photoshop but I don’t even bother to try to open it. Lol!

    I love my Mac, so once you get adjusted, I think you will be really happy with it. I love your dress! Even though, I have a much fuller figure than you, I can see that dress working on so many body types. Adorable!

    Hey, Tania, I’d come over to your house & steal that tunic if I could! It looks ADORABLE on you! And I love the way you styled it w/the turquoise & the half calf boots! Now I’m on a mission to go find one like it! And I think I have to order that necklace – I did an order yesterday & never even saw it! And I wanted to tell you that on another blog I follow she is talking about lashes & what she uses & several other women have written in that they are using Lash Boost & have had wonderful results! So kudos to you & R & F! I’ts getting really popular!

    I love the plunder jewelry you are wearing here! Being new and all I’m just now figuring out that your are the stylist w/ Plunder?!! 🙂 I want the Nellie necklace for sure & I looked at the bangles (in the picture on the Nellie page) to find the one you are wearing but not seeing a set like that. are they all individuals by chance? if so, can you please tell me which ones they are? Thank you! Niki

    • Tania
      February 23, 2017

      Niki, since I found Plunder jewelry it is about all I ever wear. The bangles are sold individually. If you go to http://www.plunderdesign.com/party/tania1 then hit the shop tab. From there you will see a search bar. If you type in the word bangle they will come up. They are 14.00 each. I love them and I have finally gotten all of them.

    I am so sorry about your headache! I used to have migraines and luckily haven’t endured one in over a year. Nothing can put someone in the bed faster, in my opinion. You look great despite the headache 🙂

    You look great, as always! Tania, I’m a bit confused. After reading the comments I can’t tell if you have a Mac or not. If you kept with the Apple products, you can download Google Photos, which is a free photo and video storage app. Then you should be able to sync all your Apple items (iPhone, iPad, Mac). I’m sure you can use the app with other devices, if you have another brand. Perhaps your sister can explain it better than I ;o)

      It is a MacBook Pro. I have had Mac products for about 8 or 9 years.

    You didn’t mention the earrings but they look like the ones I just purchased through your Plunder party! They are very different for me so I’m excited and anxious to try them out. Your outfit, as usually is so cute!

    • Tania
      February 23, 2017

      They are Plunder, Dawn. I went to link to them last night and couldn’t find them. They might be sold out right now.

  • Jeanne
    February 23, 2017

    Tania, love the outfit.And I ordered the” Jean earrings” that would go with the necklace, last night, but I did not see a necklace like that. Has it sold out? Or did I miss NELLIE?
    My order w/tax was around $60, does that count towards the 15%? Just thought I would check??!!
    Hope your head feels better!! I have never used a Mac before..

    • Tania
      February 23, 2017

      You must have missed it, Jeanne. The Nellie is still there. There are times when I am looking for an item that I can’t remember the name of and I skip over it three or four times before I see it. Lol! BTW, you order totaled EXACTLY 50.00. I mailed out over 350.00 worth of refunds today!

      • Jeanne
        February 23, 2017

        Great Tania,thanks!! I will go back and look for the next order.!!
