Have I mentioned that I have started the process of training my replacement at work? I am finally going to bite the bullet and really start working from home. But, before that can happen, I need to make sure that everything is taken care of and that everybody is trained. The only way that I know to do that is by looking over their shoulder as I instruct them how to do it once and then to let them do it the rest of the time. Then I just sit and twiddle my thumbs while they finish the task. It is a funny feeling to know that you can be replaced. I have always said that if something happened to me tomorrow that someone would have to take over but to see it in action is different. The thing that makes my job hard to train someone for is the fact that some of my activities are only done once a month or once every three months. So, I can show them this month but by the time next month rolls around it is hard to remember what to do, even with good notes. So, even though I won’t be actually “working” I am still going to have to be around for a couple of months more. The other thing that is hard is that I am now going to be dependant on “my” businesses and I will have to try and grow them. How do you gurls that have retired do it? It is a scary thought to be dependant on me and not a “written in stone” paycheck that I can depend on every 2 weeks. Yikes!!! 😱So, today is the last day of my Same Blouse/Different Look series. I have done casual, office appropriate, smart casual, and today’s look is what I consider down-right play time. You might not think about pairing a blouse with a pair of casual shorts but as you can see, it looks just fine.
Aren’t these the cutest earrings? These are the Kenna earrings which are a pair of tan leather earrings that are 3″ long. These do not come monogrammed, they are plain. But, I took these to my local guy and had them monogrammed which was a very small cost. I really wish that you could see this Carla necklace in person. The beading is multi-colored and they have a lot of sparkles. They are strung on a tan/pink leather cord. The Scarlett bracelet is also a tan leather bracelet that has gold disc attached. I love my Plunder jewelry because it is affordable and I can get all the latest trends without spending a fortune. Go to www.plunderdesign.com/taniastephens to make a purchase and please pick a party with my name in it. Shorts are cool in the summer but let’s face it, once you hit a certain age, showing some leg is not in the top ten things that you want to do. In fact, I doubt it is even on the top 50 list!!! Lol! I don’t have pretty legs because I was stupid in my youth and didn’t use sunscreen. I have LOTS of sun damage which make my legs look motely. But, as far as I know, there hasn’t been anyone lose their eyesight after taking a gander at them. So, until that happens I will continue to be cool and comfortable in the summer months. This pair is linen and has a drawstring waist. I bought this tan pair and also a white pair from Cato Fashion’s back very early in the summer. I really never meant to put them on the blog but instead to just wear around the house on the weekends. But, I figured that you wear clothes on the weekends (at least I hope you do) and that you might like to see the outfit.
Shy, busy, and not very social media savvy would be the way that I described myself in May 2016. So when I decided to become a consultant and the owner of my very own business, I only did it to look the best that I could. But, I can’t help to think that the Lord has maneuvered me in ways that I never could have or would have gone. While I thought I started a blog and a skincare business for personal reasons, He was molding me and gifting me the answer to some of my prayers.
He gifted me a voice with my blog. He gifted me so many new friends even though I have never met them in person. He gifted me with a platform to share my faith. He gifted me confidence and helped me become bold. He gifted me with a financial income that I could not imagine possible. And, He gifted me all of that and still gave me the best skin that I originally thought I was after.
I don’t know if you are looking for a way to look better or if you have been praying for something else. I don’t know if my business is what you need. But, I do know that it can be an answer to prayers and I am thankful every day that He gifted it to me.
From now until the end of the month you can join me on this journey and see what is in store for you. By joining me in the next few days you will be gifted a business that can take you on an amazing journey but you will also be gifted with some extra products like an additional Redefine Regimen and a Lash Boost at no cost.
I really appreciate all of the shares and the pins of my outfits that you have been doing. PLEASE continue to do that, you won’t believe the difference it has made in my number of visitors to my blog.
