Today was not the best for me. I was not personally involved but there was a bad wreck in front of my house. I had actually gone outside to sit in the sun for a few minutes and write on my blog. I was typing when I heard a very loud crash and I knew that was what had happened. I didn’t hear any squealing of tires, just a loud boom.There is a large embankment in front of my house to the main road so I couldn’t see the cars but just in a few minutes, I started seeing smoke and then the sirens started getting closer. I knew it was bad because the sirens just kept coming and within 15 minutes I heard the med-flight helicopters (3) start circling overhead. They had to land in the middle of the road and since there is a mountain on one side that was not an easy task. I hate when something like this happens and it was later in the night before I could even get back to working on the blog.I just bought this smocked off the shoulder top the other day at Cato’s. Once again, I hit the clearance rack and got this top for practically nothing. I love this top and I would have bought it even if it wasn’t on sale. That is the litmus test you should use when buying anything. I first look at the items and decide if I like it before I look at the price tag. The red, white and cream stripes are great together and the smocking around the shoulders holds it in place really well. When I bought the top the sales lady said, “I hope you are going to put this on your blog. I have been wanting to see someone style it.” Lol!
I went with some red accessories with this top. I thought about black but I will use any excuse to wear my red Diana earrings. Since I have been letting my hair grow longer I like the bigger, longer earrings. This is the perfect size for me because you can see them when my hair is down. I have on a red bling bracelet that was a special purchase for Valentine’s and the Ezra which was a special purchase at Halloween. The Ezra was so popular that they brought it back in the spring catalog.
The look I make when I realize that I forgot to put on a necklace. I have a woman’s club friend that says she will turn around and go back home if she forgets her earrings. Lol! Since this is a close-up of my hand, what do you think about my manicure? Joe wanted me to try the almond shape. It has taken me several days to get used to it and I keep missing the keys when I am typing. Haha!I have never worn this bracelet before. It is the Ophelia and it has a choker necklace called the Odell that matches it. The bracelet is an elastic 7.5″ type and it is in antique silver.I really like Emma Fox purses. I used to buy them at TJ Maxx but they don’t ever have any now when I shop. I could pay full price for them but you and I both know that is not going to happen. These purses are so nice and are great quality but be forwarned that this quality comes at a price. They are heavy!
I wore black pixie pants from Old Navy with the top. I thought about just wearing jeans but it was too hot for that. As most of you know, pixie pants are one of my very favorite type pants. I love the fit but here is my suggestion. If you get the chino style then buy your normal size but if you get the stretch style with spandex you will want to size up.
I have worn these black gladiator sandals by Sole Society before with these pixie pants and I like the effect. I think that I like the open straps and that it goes up my ankle for the height. This pair has a block heel which is still very popular.
I am just curious how many of you had not heard of Rodan + Fields until you started reading my blog. I have had some of my friends say that they have had ladies tell them that they think it is too late for them to join in the business, that it is oversaturated with consultants. In reality, the total number of R+F consultants in the U.S. and Canada doesn’t even equal the total number of people in the lowest populated state in the U.S., which is Wyoming. Of those people who are consultants, 44% in 2016 simply joined for the great discount (not actively working). I have only been in this business barely over a year and I got an email this weekend telling me that I was in the top 8.5% of consultants actively working the business.
My point is that every single person you know has SKIN and is AGING. People are being born every day. The potential and possibilities of this opportunity are endless. These dermatologists sold ProActiv and are laser focused on Rodan + Fields not only remaining the #1 skincare company in the U.S. but being #1 GLOBALLY. This is still a company in its infancy.
SO, today marks my 23rd month as a blogger. That’s right, next month I will have been blogging for 2 years. I am just amazed at how well the blog has been received, how much fun I am having along the way, and how many of you have become friends that I recognize by name. So I am hosting a giveaway and it is easy to make it a Rodan + Fields present because I have access and I know that every one of us has skin. Lol! Simply comment below what you skin concerns are. The winner will receive a product geared toward helping their issue. I will do the giveaway on Saturday’s post so be sure to invite your friends to also leave comments.
You know when you put a post on FaceBook you wait to see if you will get any “likes” or “hearts?” That is how I feel about my blog. Leaving a comment and pinning a picture to Pinterest is my equivalent to a “like.” If you share my post on FaceBook that is a “heart.” Show me some love, gurls!!!
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. Be sure to follow me on Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and Facebook.
