Happy Monday everyone! I am feeling pretty happy today, I had a great weekend. I got my nails finally done even though you won’t see them for awhile because I have some pictures taken ahead. I did a French Manicure and my nail tech about fell out of his chair. He knows I only do a French Manicure once or twice a year. Joe had also been gone for a few days and he got back home Saturday afternoon. Everything is now back to normal. Lol!The visit to the nail salon, however, was a tad bit crazy this time. Bill and Lisa are the American names of my nails techs. Lisa just had a beautiful little girl a week ago today so they have a couple of older ladies helping out. While I was getting a pedicure one of them came over to me and wanted to start on my nails. She was horrified at how bad they looked. Haha! She immediately said I needed a new set of tip put on. I don’t like tips and I only get an overlay on top of my real nails. I told her this and you could see the disapproval. She went away and came back in about 5 minutes and started taking off the polish, etc. but once again telling me that my real nails were “too brittle and weak” and that I needed new tips. I explained to her that I knew they were brittle and weak and that was why I had an overlay applied to them. I once again got the disapproving look. When I got to move to the manicure chair I had hoped that Bill would take over because he is used to my less than perfect nails but he was already waiting on another lady. Guess who came and sat down across from me? UGH! She started cutting and clipping and before I knew it she had almost cut my nails down to nubs all the time grumbling. Finally, I said to her to put on tips and she perked up right away. Am I becoming one of those “set in my way” little old women? I am starting a new series today that will run through the rest of this week. You are going to be amazed at how I can take a dress and come up with different looks. I am starting with a simple Rayon swing dress from Old Navy. I bought this dress last fall and EVERY time I wear it Joe tells me how much he likes me in this dress. The last time I went to Old Navy the dress was on sale 40% off and I bought about 4 more versions. I am no dummy, if my husband likes me in something then I am going to make sure I have plenty of them to wear. Plunder has a brand new Spring line of jewelry that just came out. I have ordered two bunches of it but I haven’t gotten it yet. For the next week, you might see me wearing jewelry that is no longer available for purchase so I am sorry about that. I am trying to decide whether to keep my retired pieces, sell them, or give them to my mom and sister. I have had this baby blue set for 6 months but I never wore it. Wouldn’t you know that when I finally started wearing it, they retired it? Lol! I am carrying a cute little cross body light gray purse. I bought this at TJ Maxx for only 25.00. I don’t carry small purses unless I am going out to dinner or a party and I don’t want to lug around a big satchel. I will only put money, a cell phone, and some ID in the purse. Cell phones are so big now that you have to make sure they will fit. I always try to put the cell phone inside the purse before I will buy it.
My cute little ballet flats are in navy. This is a pair of Isaac Mizrahi flats that I bought from the overstock store in town. I like a ballet flat because they go with jeans, shorts, or a dress. When you are limited in your closet space or in your bank account, you want to make sure that you can get a lot of wear out of your purchase.
I know some of you are thinking that the dress is too short. That is fine, don’t wear yours this short. Lol! I want to encourage you how to take my looks and make them “your” looks. You don’t have to look head to toe exactly like me. You can take this dress or shoes and find one that works for you. Here are a couple dresses that would work just as well but that are a little longer.
I want everyone to have lashes that your nail techs will envy! SO, I am offering a $10.00 off every order!!! If you sign up as a Preferred Customer you will receive an additional 10% off plus free shipping. Go here to order Lash Boost.
I want to thank everyone who has signed up for my emails. I promise you only get one email a day from me and I don’t give out your email addresses, that would just be weird. Lol! I am only 200 away from that magical 5000 mark, woohoo! PLEASE take the time to signup!!! 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 look forward to reading all the comments, they make my day.
