CRYSTAL CLEAR

50 IS NOT OLD | CRYSTAL CLEARThe celebration is over and it is time to get back to work. So, let’s talk about Fall. I went outside this morning and was shocked at how cool it was. This may push me over the edge and get me to start with the Fall decorations. I had a hard time putting up Christmas decorations last year but for some reason, the Fall decorations are the easiest ones for me to put out. Maybe it is because it is cool and not freezing outside. Maybe it is because I love the pumpkins, mums, scarecrows, and haystacks. Have I got you in the mood yet??? Lol!50 IS NOT OLD | CRYSTAL CLEARI don’t think that I will have as much trouble putting up Christmas decorations this year since I already have a head start. My Christmas tree is already up and decorated. Notice that I didn’t say that I have already put my tree up, I just never took it down from last year. Haha! At some point, I decided that it was just going to be easier to leave it up. 50 IS NOT OLD | CRYSTAL CLEARCrisp, clean, and clear. Wow! What a difference this camera has made! I am already in love with the Canon Powershot G7 X II. This camera is super easy to use and it is really small and compact. I acted like I was a man and didn’t even bother to get the user manual out and read it. Lol! Since the weather is cool in the mornings now we need to start to transition our wardrobe. I keep most of my summer tops in my closet and just supplement them with blazers and cardigans. This cardigan is one that I bought a couple of weeks ago at a little boutique in town. I love the faded washed look of the material. The brand of this cardigan is Veveret which I have never heard of but that doesn’t matter. What mattered to me was the length and the colors.


50 IS NOT OLD | CRYSTAL CLEARI chose to wear these lightweight metal earrings. They are no longer in the catalog but since I thought they matched well I decided to wear them. I originally had on the Bowie earrings which I normally wear with this necklace. Can you “Believe” how clear the bracelets are? The bracelet that has a Believe charm on it came from the gift shop at the hospital when Beckham was born.50 IS NOT OLD | CRYSTAL CLEARThe Destiny necklace is the gold with the monogram. The longer necklace is the Bella Rose and it is the one that the Bowie earrings match. I love the gold and the pearls and there is a little gray thrown in for good measure. The bracelet with the monogram, (turned around backward as usual) is the Celine. The gold arrow bracelet is the Dixie and it is on an elastic band.50 IS NOT OLD | CRYSTAL CLEARI am just showing off now!!! Can you believe how clear this picture is??? Holy cow, I am going to have to be careful and make sure there is nothing in my teeth when I take pictures. Lol!50 IS NOT OLD | CRYSTAL CLEARIt is getting that time of the year. It is time to start wearing the ankle booties again and I can’t wait. I love ankle booties even better than I do knee boots. I think the fact that I have large calves might have something to do with it. This pair is from Old Navy and they are a fawn color which goes with almost everything. It is the perfect neutral.

50 IS NOT OLD | CRYSTAL CLEARI picked the one picture where you can’t see the jeans to talk about the jeans. Lol! This is a new pair from Kut from the Kloth that I got in my StitchFix box. They are a deep dark denim and they fit like a glove. I love this pair and I think I will like them even better after a couple of washings. I ordered my normal size and they fit fine. I have read that if you are in between sizes that you might want to size down.

50 IS NOT OLD | CRYSTAL CLEARI finally did it! You are now looking at the number 1 consultant on that 1600 member team that I am a part of. My head is still in the clouds and I am riding high. When I started the blog some of the best advice I got was to be consistent. They said that no matter what schedule I chose that I needed to stick with that routine. The same is true with my Rodan + Fields business. I consistently let you know about products, incentives, sales, and most importantly the opportunity of the business. If you want to be a partner with the number 1 dermatologists in the world then I can show you the ropes. This entire month I am offering $50.00 off of a 395.00 kit, $75.00 off of the 695.00 kit, and $100.00 off of the 995.00 kit. PLUS, I will also be gifting you with a box of microdermabrasion paste packets to give out to your potential customers. Interested? Email me and lets set up a quick call and talk it over.

If you missed my post yesterday, I am having a giveaway to celebrate my 2nd anniversary. Since I am so enamored with Alex and Ani bracelets I thought you might like one for yourself. Go to yesterday’s post to enter. This is the Key To Life Charm Bangle and here is what Alex and Ani say about this bracelet:

Life is a series of experiences, leading us on a path that ultimately defines us as individuals. When we realize we have the power to unlock our destiny, we hold the key to life. Use positive, conscious thinking and the decisions you make will express your personal power.

    Ok , I love the outfit , Cardigan , jeans and booties. You look as beautiful as ever and your camera skills are excellent ……. but what I really really want to know is …… Do you really have your Christmas tree up ? You are a hoot and I can’t wait to read your post every morning, like so many of your followers I feel like I know you. Thanks for bringing a smile to my face. (But I do want a follow up on that tree question) that might require a whole post—-or maybe we should get your sister to do a post on that).

    I found a link to the cardigan which I really like. I didn’t sign in to see the price. They seem to be an American made brand and have some cute stuff.

    Hi Tania. Love the outfit. Especially the duster. I’m a Stitch Fix fan as well and was surprised how well the clothes fit me. Your jeans look great. I so enjoy reading your blog every morning. I’m going to buy the earrings that match your necklace & check out the bracelet for my daughter’s wedding in October. It’s cool here in Kentucky too. Fall is on its way. Have a great day!

    Good morning and CONGRATULATIONS! You’ve been #1 with me since the first time I saw your picture on Pinterest! You woke me up to a brand new world of fun! I tell everyone I know about YOU, Miss Tania!

    ❤️❤️❤️Your outfit! ❤️❤️❤️Your booties! ❤️❤️❤️Your cardigan, you’re so lucky to be tall!

    So impressed by your photography skills! I could NEVER just get a camera out of its packaging without reading ALL the instructions first, before using. AMAZING!

    You’re certainly EVEN more lovely in your new pics!

    As for leaving your tree up all year, well, it must remind you of the extraordinary anticipation of Christ’s birth! The warmth and love of The Season. The kindness, happiness and joy of sharing with your family and friends! Christmas is MY favorite time of year!

    Thank you for today’s blog! Happy everyday to YOU and to all your followers! 🎄🎄🎄

    Cardigan is very cute, Tania. Girl, I have my tree up too, but it’s not decorated. The last couple of years I’ve kept it together and stand it up in my husbands man cave. It’s a room in the basement that nobody goes in and he cleans his guns and stores man stuff in there, along with my tree ;-D I also did that at the office too. I get so tired every year having problems at work, getting that stupid thing together. I’m so very excited to not have the stress of that this year. People find a place to store your trees…It’s life changing!!! Lol

      I knew we were friends Melesa! I left mine decorated in a corner too, it just happens to be the living room. Lol!

    I love fall! It’s my favorite season for gardens, flowers, clothes and food! I love decorating my porch with mums and pumpkins and love pulling out my booties instead of sandals! It’s also easier to dress with layers, which as an apple-shape, is my most flattering strategy!

    Even tho it is much cooler in the mornings, I am hanging into summer for dear life! And since our Indian Summer lasts way into October usually, I am still in shorts! But your early fall outfit is cute as always!

    Congratulations on being #1…I have my kept my Christmas tree up all year for several years. Some years I would decorate for each holiday (Valentines, St Patrick’s Day, Easter, Red, White and Blue for Memorial Day through Labor Day, Halloween and then Christmas!) When we went over to my new daughter-in-law’s mother’s house – she also had her tree still up in the middle of the year! That’s when I knew we would all get along for sure!!

    • Tania
      September 7, 2017

      Kaye, that is so funny! I decorated one year for different occasions but this year I just left it decorated. Lol!

    I just ordered the lash boost from your website. Are you still using it and how long does it usually take to see results? Love your blog!! Anyone else have comments about lash boost?

    • Tania
      September 8, 2017

      Karen, I saw that you placed an order. You will love your new lashes. Some people can start seeing results within a week, some people like me take a longer time. It says to give it 8 weeks and mine might have even taken longer. I just kept using the serum since I already had it and all at once I looked in the mirror and there were. You only apply a very small amount, I wipe off almost all the serum before I apply. If you add too much it can travel into your eyes and make them red. If that happens you need to stop using it for a couple of days and then start back using less serum. It only takes a small amount.

    I’m sure you don’t have time to answer but I’ll try anyway. How do you decide when it is OK to start wearing booties? Do you go by the weather where you live or time of year? Going to a casual wedding in the mountains of VA next week. My suede booties would be perfect with my outfit but wonder if it is too early.

    • Tania
      September 12, 2017

      Joan, I have no set time. I see people wearing cowboy boots all summer long so I figure I can wear booties whenever I feel like it. Go for it.
