I loved all the comments that you gurls left for your 12-year-old self. I think that most of them were things that we can still apply to our lives at any age. Having confidence was mentioned several times. Pay attention to your parents, grandparents, etc. because they won’t be around forever was fantastic advice. Take chances, have fun, be bold, don’t worry what others think, be kind, and to remember that “fitting in” and caving in to peer pressure will not make you happy are some of the things that I wish I had known at 12. Looking over that list for my 12-year-old self was really eye-opening. I was shy, lacked confidence, and was always worried about what people thought especially the “in” crowd. Those characteristics don’t just go away as you age. You have to work on them, acknowledge them, and change them. I still consider myself shy but I am doing better. My confidence level has improved and I only care what the people I love think about me, not an “in” crowd. Being bold and adventurous is still something that I need to work on. As I have gotten older I have found that I am more cautious and not as care-free. Is that just me or is that an age thing? And, the winner of the free signed book by my sister was Kelli King!!! I sent you an email to let you know.Today’s top was one that I got in my last Trunk Club shipment. I loved the deep burgundy color and the tie-front which is very “hot” this season. But, once again, it was the softness that made it a keeper for me. I took it to Livingston when I traveled there for Christmas and my sister laughed because she had gotten the very same top in her shipment except her’s was a blue color. Lol! We both kept the tops for the same reason of the coziness and relaxed feel. The top is by Gibson and it is a little longer in the back for some extra coverage. The reason I like Trunk Club is because of the ease. I messaged my stylist, Elizabeth, and told her that I was going to be going on a spa trip in January and asked her to send me a few things for relaxing and a few things for wearing out to dinner. I scheduled the shipment sooner than it was scheduled so that I would have time to look at the items and send back the ones that I didn’t want. I am really excited to see what she picks out for me.
I love how the gold “pops” off of the burgundy color of the top. Silver might have looked just as good but I feel like the burgundy in a warm color and that gold is also. I am no expert so don’t quote me. Lol! Let’s start with the Ashton earrings. These are my favorite earrings and I wear them often. I like the filigree design and the length or drop is perfect for me. I love wearing the Vivi and the Clarissa necklaces together. They accent each other and hang perfectly when worn together. The Vivi is the spiky shorter necklace and the Clarissa is the longer one with all the dangling charms. I was thrilled to see that some of you took advantage of my special that I am running this month. Purchase 75.00 from Plunder jewelry (excluding shipping and tax) and I will send you an extra piece of jewelry. Go to to place an order and be sure to pick a party with my name on it.These Italian leather boots are several years old. I bought these at TJ Maxx and I have loved them ever since I got them. This pair if fur lined on the inside so they are super soft and warm. Since it has been so cold outside lately I thought that the fur sounded really good. Lol!
This caramel pair of jeans is by Old Navy. I have two of these jeans in the exact same style and color. That just goes to show you how much I like this color and style. Lol! Okay, it might also go to show you that I am forgetful and that I own way too much clothing but I am going with the first choice. When I went to link to these jeans I noticed that they are on sale, crazy cheap!!! The sizes might be limited so hurry and check them out before they are all sold out.
I have sent out an email to the winner of the Redefine Multi-function eye cream, (Beck and Tom) and to the winner of the Lottie necklace (Charlotte Miller) by Plunder. Congratulations ladies!!!
