What a day! With a statement like that, you never know if what comes next is going to be good or bad. In this case, it wasn’t good but it could have been worse. I am trying to see the silver lining in all situations and I have found that you might not be able to see the lining for a while. I recently had that happen a month or so ago when I had a situation happen that was somewhat hurtful and just totally out of the blue. I whined, pouted, vented, and maybe a little more than vent. However, now that I am looking over the whole situation and how it has played out, I see some amazing things that have happened that wouldn’t have otherwise. #riggedMy day was just minor little irritations and nothing major. I mixed up a lot of shipping labels and had to go to the post office in order to get everything straightened out. It could have cost me a lot of money if I hadn’t caught the error so I guess that something good did come out of it after all. Then, I stopped by work to pick up some deliveries that were left there for me and I stayed around to help reconcile the checkbook. That whole process is always a pain but today’s was outright painful. I am going to have to go back tomorrow to find the last little bit that we are off but the big, and I mean big, amount that we were off has been found. The bad thing is that we were not off in our favor but the good thing is that it could have been worse. My poor replacement had to go and tell Joe what the issue was and I think that she expected him to go through the roof. However, he took it all in stride which I am sure shocked the dickens out of her. Joe is one that will go berserk over a tiny detail but he never sweats the big stuff. So, I have learned that if I am going to mess up that it might as well be a BIG mess. The dress that I have on today is called a floral midi dress. However, I am calling it a slip dress. Doesn’t this remind you of a slip with the lace around the neckline and arms? I feel a little like Miss Kitty in Gunsmoke in this dress. I couldn’t say that if I have a 30 something blog. My audience would be saying, “who?” lol!!! Anyway, this dress was in my Trunk Club shipment but I did end up sending this one back. The were some pros that I liked about this dress but the cons overweighed them. The dress was just too large through the bust area or I am too small through the bust area one. Lol! I did like the pretty floral pattern but I will keep searching because this was not the one for me. However, that doesn’t mean that it is not the right dress for you. This would be very cute on some of you who are larger chested. The deep v-neck and the and the empire type waist would enhance your endowments. Here is the link to this dress.
Dawna earrings are perfect for this style of dress. They just brush the top of your shoulders and look dainty just like the print on the dress. The Mary Ellen bracelet and the Morgan bracelet are what I chose for this look. I just wanted to pick something simple so that it wouldn’t take away from the look of the dress. The Quinn necklace has a tiny turquoise stone on a black cord. I wear this necklace a lot because of the length and how it fits perfectly in the void of the neckline. This month is my 3 year Blog anniversary! I can’t believe that it has been that long! I am celebrating by offering a free piece of jewelry with every 50.00 purchase (excluding taxes and shipping) made this entire month! Go here and have fun shopping! Make sure that you pick a party with my name in it so that I can track the purchases. I am loving these hot pink pumps from Charles David. I bought these a couple of months ago and I took them to Cancun with me. I am highly attracted to hot pink in my clothing and even in my shoes. I like wearing heels but I know a lot of you are not as comfortable in heels so you can feel free to pick the style that works best for you.
You never know how things can change on a dime. Here I was writing the blog, semi-complaining about my day, and then things flipped and my day just got better! I just got 2 emails from Rodan + Fields that changed my whole day. One email was giving me access to an invitation-only SPARKLE LOUNGE where I will receive a Swarovski gift designed exclusively for Rodan + Fields.
THEN, the second email came that told me that I would be walking the stage Saturday morning and be recognized as a Leader in this business. And, they are going to be depositing a HUGE chunk of change in my account tomorrow so that my trip doesn’t cost me a thing!!! 🎉New Orleans, here I come!
