50 IS NOT OLD | BRIGHT LEOPARD PRINT | FASHION OVER 40I took the day off Tuesday and stayed at home to do some catching up on things that had been put on the back burner. I had to pay some bills and get my daughter’s taxes in the mail before the October 15th deadline. And then I did something that I hadn’t done in ages……I fried bacon, lots and lots of bacon. For some odd reason, Joe came home from going to the grocery store and he brought in 2 pounds of bacon. I thought about it sitting in the refrigerator and I got to wanting a BLT sandwich. But, I hate the smell of yucky grease in my house. When you fry bacon it seems to go everywhere, including all over your clothes. Lol!50 IS NOT OLD | BRIGHT LEOPARD PRINT | FASHION OVER 40 I went to the store to grab some lettuce and then came home and decided to start frying the bacon OUTSIDE on the grill. We have a side burner, so I grabbed my cast iron skillet and threw me some bacon to make my sandwich. Then I thought that I should fry enough for Joe to have a sandwich or two since he would probably smell the bacon on my clothing. While I was frying his slices, I ended up eating all of the bacon that I had fried for me. LOL! So, I went back to frying more bacon. Can you guess what I ended up doing? I ended up frying ALL 2 pound of bacon and I ate so much of the bacon by itself that I didn’t even make me a sandwich. LOL! At least I know what Joe is having for supper tonight. Hahaha!50 IS NOT OLD | BRIGHT LEOPARD PRINT | FASHION OVER 40 I bought this adorably fun leopard print top at a local boutique the other day. I loved the fun play on the colors and the fact that it had pockets. I wore this on the plane ride when I went to New Orleans but I wasn’t able to take pictures that day, except for the one of me eating huge shrimps that came with their heads still attached. I wasn’t a fan of having to disconnect the heads off of the shrimp but I was a fan of the top. Lol! The top is that stretchy knit that will show all of your flaws so I made sure that I got a size big enough to not cling to me. But, there is no a tag anywhere on this top. There isn’t a brand name or a size and care label. It reminds me of a homemade garment where you don’t sew a label in but this was store bought. Oops, sorry, I guess we are going to have to settle for items that are similar even though I know that there is no way that I will be able to find anything even remotely similar. Lol!

50 IS NOT OLD | BRIGHT LEOPARD PRINT | FASHION OVER 40I am wearing my Margaret Sue earrings that are part of the new fall jewelry line that just launched. I showed these in the Plunder video that I did last Friday, go here if you haven’t seen that. These have a gold half disc with bright blue tassels attached on a 2.75-inch drop. I also added the Kelsey bracelet which has hot pink marbled beads and a magnetic clasp. This is not adjustable and it fits a 7.5 wrist. I spent at least 3 hours today getting the free jewelry together, addressing and stamping the packages, and getting them to the post office. Be sure to watch for your hot pink package to come in the mail if you qualified for the free gift from my last month giveaway.50 IS NOT OLD | BRIGHT LEOPARD PRINT | FASHION OVER 40 Over thirty packages went out in the mail!!!50 IS NOT OLD | BRIGHT LEOPARD PRINT | FASHION OVER 40 I really think that I should have worn a different shoe but it is too late now. Lol! The pinks are similar but not the same. When you are wearing it you can’t tell the difference like you can in looking at a picture. I wish now that I had of just worn a pair of navy ballet slippers with this. That is what I wore when I flew to New Orleans so I have no idea why I decided to wear something different for today’s look. Don’t get me wrong, I love these hot pink flats, but just not with this top. I am sure that you know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, so hunt out your pink items and wear them proudly.

50 IS NOT OLD | BRIGHT LEOPARD PRINT | FASHION OVER 40I have on a pair of cuffed raw edge skinny jeans c/o Cato Fashions. I love that the cuff is sewn into the jean so I don’t have to worry if I have them turned up the same amount. This will be a fabulous pair of jeans to wear with my ankle boots this fall and I can see me getting a lot of wear from them. I am wearing my normal size and the best thing about these jeans is that they are on sale!!! Woohoo! Grab them while they still have your size available.

50 IS NOT OLD | BRIGHT LEOPARD PRINT | FASHION OVER 40I had a lady join me in my Rodan + Fields business last month and she and I were talking one night. I asked her why she wanted to join me in business and I had to share her answer. She told me that she used to work but not she stays at home. She said that she now has a “daddy” instead of a “husband.” When she wants to buy something, she has to ask him for money or for the credit card. She said that she wants to earn her own money and not to feel like she needs to beg for money. Wow! That floored me!!! I have worked for so long that I had forgotten how it felt to have to “ask” my husband for permission to buy anything. Out of respect, I would always tell him if I was going to spend a large sum of money, but if I wanted to spend several hundred dollars, I would never even give it a second thought. If you are now a stay at home woman who wants to have extra spending money so that you don’t have to ask or justify your spending habits, then let’s talk. I can’t guarantee that you will make a lot of spending money but I can guarantee that I will help you in any way that I can.

  1. Tania, my hubby came up with a great idea this summer. He also fries bacon on the grill, but he uses the actual grill, not the side burner. You would think it would fall between the grates, but it doesn’t! I hate my house smelling like bacon grease and there is no clean up, which make me VERY happy.😄

  2. I don’t fry bacon anymore. I bake it. Place the bacon on a cookie sheet covered with foil, put it in a cold oven, set the temperature to 400 degrees and set the timer for 15 minutes. No greasy stovetop and no need to stand over the stove to turn the bacon. (I do sometimes check about halfway through and turn the pan around however.) Easy cleanup too, just throw the foil away.

  3. The leopard top is great. I love the neckline. So simple and sits nicely on the shoulders.
    Not having the outdoor lifestyle you have we do have to cook it indoors. Unlike you I love the smell. My vegetarian niece says when she smells bacon it’s the one thing she misses most.
    P.s. nice to have you back with me this morning whilst I have my cup of tea. ☺

  4. I love bacon, but baking it is the way to go. I bake it for about 20 minutes at 400 degrees. Sometimes a few minutes longer, and sometimes a few minutes less, depending on how crispy you want it. Easy clean up too. Line a cookie sheet with foil, put the bacon on and bake.🥓🥓🥓😊

  5. Cute top and I never think of buying a size larger so that it’s not clingy. I’ll have to see what that would look like on me. I also bake my bacon on a cookie sheet with foil. To get rid of the bacon smell, I usually start my diffuser or a candle and that helps get rid of the smell.

  6. Tania, you need an Air Fryer!!! Best invention EVER made! NO smell and an easy clean up. We bought ours at QVC (their biggest one) and haven’t looked back. Our daughter and son in law were so impressed, they bought one and we all just love it. You can cook SO many things in one (just about anything you would have to fry or cook from scratch). You really should check in to getting one. Saves you some calories too. Air frying is the bomb!!

  7. Fun top! I bake my bacon too. I do at least two pounds at once and freeze it so there is always some on hand. Great make ahead tip especially for company. I am not a morning person!

  8. Bake that bacon. No clean up & the grease drips off. You always look fabulous.

  10. OHHHHHH, Honey, Honey, Honey, you’re looking TOO FABOO, Today! Yum! Yum! Eat ‘em up!
    LOL!!!! VERY flattering top!

    Bacon, bacon, bacon!!! 🥓❤️👋🏻
