I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Today is Labor Day and I know that for a lot of you the weekend is not over since you have today off also. A long weekend is so enjoyable and I remember looking forward to them even though we hardly ever had plans. One plan that I always make is to check out all of the sales that are going on. (Insert a shocked gasp) I posted all of my favorite store’s sales in this Saturday’s newsletter. If you would like to see it just click HERE. This weekend was a blast for me since I got to have a sleepover with little Miss Thang, aka Emersyn. Her mom and dad were gone on Saturday and they weren’t coming back until really late so she spent the night with me. We played with Slime (of course,) we made a trip to McDonald’s, Walmart and the Dollar Store, a local boutique, the airport to check out the new paint job on Joe’s plane, watched a groundhog and wild turkeys playing, and then followed all that by going to the Park and letting her play until it was pitch black outside. And my son wonders why she wants to come to my house since it is not fun. Lol!
There was one little fight thought before she went back home on Sunday. I told her that she had to clean up all of her mess and toys before she could go home. Apparently, that was not on her to-do list. She tried balking, crying, stomping her foot, and then declared that I was MEAN! She said that I was never mean to her and she just couldn’t understand why I was treating her in this manner. Lol! She finally got around to picking up everything after some tears and then she had me rolling on the floor. She was cleaning up the mess from where she had been playing with her Barbie house. She was picking up the clothing that was laying around and she asked me, “NeeNee, what am I supposed to do with these hooker pants?” WHAT??? I said, “what kind of pant?” She told me again that they were hooker pants and I thought I was going to laugh. I asked her about the pants and why she was calling them hooker pants. She said, “because YOU said they were hooker pants.” Okay, first thing, I don’t talk about hookers or their clothing to my 5-year-old granddaughter. I said, “no, I didn’t tell you that.” “Yes, you did, NeeNee. You said these pants had to be hung up on the hooks.” LOL!!! I told my son when he came over to pick her up that this story was definitely going on the blog because if she ever tells anyone that her NeeNee said they were wearing hooker pants I want them to know the reason why. Hahahaha! On Labor Day the dress is more casual. I chose to wear my bright pink linen blend top that I got in a Trunk Club shipment months ago. This linen tee was by a brand called Uptown and it came from Nordstrom. This particular top is no longer available but I did find a lot of pink tops that look just as nice and I think ALL of them are on sale. See, now they look a lot nicer than the one I have on and you haven’t even seen them yet. Lol! I like bright pink and since Labor Day kind of marks an unofficial end to summer I wanted to wear a signature summer color. Surely you gurls know me better than that, I just like bright colors. Hahaha! I am not ready to say goodbye to summer just yet but I do like fall decorations and the jewel tones that are associated with fall. Which is your favorite season?
The India earrings are so fun loving. They are the type of accessory that makes me smile. I love the pink and white tassels and the added pearls and I really like how large these are. It is funny how after you start wearing larger earrings you really get addicted to them. You have been warned!!! The Violet bracelet has pink tassels and multi-colored beads all on a navy thread. If you look closely, you can see that this bracelet adjusts simply by tightening and un-tightening the navy cord. This is a wonderful system that makes putting the bracelet on and taking it off really easy. The new fall collection will be released I think on the 7th and I can’t wait to finally get to see everything. Stay tuned, there will be specials from me heading your way.
I haven’t carried this handbag in a while but it is such a beautiful color that I had to get it out today. This is a handbag by Kate Spade that I earned as a reward from R+F. The bright blue color is one that will work no matter what season it is. I have noticed that Kate Spade has gone away from this brighter color to a more muted blue. Maybe I am the only person out there that likes everything bright and bold.
I just bought these cute espadrille shoes by G.I.L.I. the other day. I love a wedge heel and the espadrille look is so summery. I know there isn’t much of summer left but it comes back every year. Lol! I like the two-tone look of the jute and the white leather. These are on sale right now and you can find them by going here. BTW, I am wearing my normal size in these shoes. These embroidered jeans were bought in the early spring and they had gotten lost in my closet. I pulled them out and I had even forgotten about them. When I came out wearing them Joe declared them cute. This coming fall it is all going to be about jeans. I have noticed in all of the stores that jeans are their focus. I love jeans in the fall so I can’t wait to start wearing my booties and boots. Joe is already starting to dread that look because he is not as big a fan as I am.
This is going to be a CRAZY month in my Rodan + Fields business. I leave for the convention in New Orleans on the 11th and I can’t wait to celebrate in the Big Easy. I have two masquerade galas to attend and you need to cross your finger that I can fit in the dresses. Also, I am hoping that the masks that I order actually arrive in time. I am not sure that a mask drawn on with a sharpie would look near as good. Lol! THEN, they will be announcing another new product on the 14th and that will be wild. I wrap up all of the fun by getting to go to a concert with Kelly Clarkson and Mario Lopez. I will be dragging my tail by the time that I get back home. But that is not all, (sounds like an infomercial) I am also running for a big goal and that means that I will be offering sales and discounts all month long.
