Since you are following a HOT (humble, open, and transparent) blogger, you probably already know that I am not a great housekeeper. Lol! I heard a preacher that I follow use that term, and I thought that was one that I needed to steal. Some of you mentioned that I should watch the Netflix series with Marie Kondo. Dang, you gurls! Now, I am in a cleaning mode! I have already started with a few drawers, baby steps first, and then I will gradually move up to the major things. I was thinking about all of the things that we accumulate over some time. We work so hard so that we can buy nice things and then we have to build on closets, outbuildings, or even rent storage units, to hold all of our “stuff” that we don’t use but don’t want to part with. I am truly going to downsize my things. I opened my coffee cup cabinet and stepped back to look at it well. It is three shelves high, and there are so many cups in there that I have to stack many cups on top of each other. Joe and I each use one cup in the morning, so that has to make me wonder why I have soooo many stinking cups. And, that doesn’t even include the cups that go with my everyday dishes, my “good” dishes, and my holiday dishes. Plus, the good dishes and the holiday dishes haven’t been out of their cabinet in over 5 or more years. It ALL needs to go, and that brings on its dilemma. Getting rid of all the stuff takes time, work, effort, and those are all the things that I don’t have. I told Joe that I think that I am going to put all of my items in a room and once or twice a month have an indoor sale to get rid of them. Some things will be donated, and I am sure some things my family will want, but it needs to leave my house. I am open to suggestions if you ladies have already been through this process and can enlighten me. Today I have on an example of how to wear “loungewear” when you are running errands. I love clothing items that can serve two purposes and loungewear is perfect for handling more than one purpose. The navy velour top is part of a set, the bottoms are navy and white polka dot, that I lounge around the house in. This top is so soft and comfortable, and the other morning I put it on to work on the computer for a while. Then, I decided to go and get a manicure, and this was what I wore. I changed out of the polka dot pants and threw on a pair of jeans. Then, to make the outfit look less like loungewear, I added a puffer vest by Crown & Ivy. I am sure that no one was aware that I was out in loungewear, what do you think?
Adding a few accessories also made the outfit look less like loungewear. I added a statement earring of hot pink leather fringe. These gorgeous earrings were c/o Kay & Star, a jewelry mother/daughter team who are on Etsy. They are super nice ladies, and I love buying from someone who I know appreciates the business. I also added the Kelsey and the Sequoia magnetic bracelets. I love the magnetic bracelets because they are so easy to put on and take off, but they are 7.5,” and they are not adjustable. Speaking of a small business owner who appreciates your business…to shop my Plunder website, go here. Lol!
I can’t sing the praises of these boots enough. I love the shaft height, I love the heel height, I love the color, and I love the fit! The only thing that I don’t love is the fact that they are last years model and I can’t find them to link for you. These are the closest that I could find.
I will usually wear skinny jeans when I tuck them inside of boots. Today, I have on a pair by Vigoss that I had forgotten that I owned. Thanks, Marie Kondo for making me look through my jeans because I came across this pair. I buy my Vigoss jeans from Maurices when I catch them on sale.
Remember, I am HOT, so I want to tell you that I have been in a couple of other direct sales companies before I joined R+F. I loved the products from each company for myself, but I never felt compelled to tell others about the products. With R+F I feel guilty if I DON”T tell you about the products, I feel selfish. I love these products; they are the only products that I have ever used that worked. I see the results every day when I look in the mirror. Why wouldn’t I want that for you??? Go here if you are interested in the products. What the products did for my face, the business did for my being. It gave me confidence! R+F has a wonderful new incentive for anyone interested in becoming a consultant through the end of the month. Join with a business kit (see all the kits here), and you will receive a free Active Hydration Body Replenish (my fav) and 20 samples of the Active Hydration Serum to let you share the love with your family and friends.
