Is it already Monday again? I swear it feels like I just blinked my eyes and three days slipped away. Lol! Here in Virginia it has rained and rained and rained some more. We live beside a small river that has flooded the entire town a couple of times years ago, so any time the rains come for extended periods, I pay close attention. It has been years since we last had a major flood, and the county has done a lot of work to widen the river and fix any bridges that can cause blockages. Still, when you lay down to go to bed at night, and you can hear the river roaring outside, it can be unsettling. On Sunday the rains eased up for at least a little while, but then the winds started, I had an appointment to have some photographs taken. I am not talking about the ones that you see here today, but some that will be on the blog later this week. I contacted one of my photography friends, she photographed the pictures here, and I asked her about doing a session for me of several outfits. I thought it might be a nice change of pace from me standing on my porch. Lol! We ended up having to reschedule for later because you wouldn’t have known it was me in the pictures. I tried taking a few pics and you couldn’t even see my face for the hair blowing everywhere. Don’t worry if you are a porch fan, I am sure that there will be plenty of times when we can’t have our sessions, just like this weekend, so the porch will still be used.
If you saw my Saturday post, then you know that I have been looking back down memory lane in search of green outfits. St. Patrick’s Day is only a couple of weeks away, and I know that you don’t want to be getting pinched. Lol! You must add some green to your wardrobe or you will pay the price. Haha! I am not looking to be mistaken for a Leprechaun, but I would like to find his bucket of gold. Today, I have on a gorgeous spring green jacket from Denim & Co. on QVC. I bought this in 2017, and it is no longer available for purchase. The ones below do all come in this bright spring green, even if the picture doesn’t show it as green.
I tried to get a close-up picture of the ring that I have on today. It is the Sunny (that almost funny right there) ring that has a large pale pink stone and the cutest rhinestone green frog holding the stone. Isn’t he adorable? I added the Alicia necklace of pearls, and a dangling cameo to help finish the look of the outfit. The top has a lot going on with it because of the pattern, but I still think it called for a necklace. I have the Broedrick, the Opal, and a green bracelet that was a special only offered for a short time last year. It won’t be very long until Plunder comes out with a new Spring line, and I am looking forward to the new items. I think that I heard a collective gasp from some of you when you saw these wedge shoes. It was fun to let my toes see the sunshine today, but I doubt if they will get to stick around very long. My beige perforated wedge sandal is from last year and is no longer available, but wedge shoes and perforated shoes are a trend this year. Plus, remember that neutrals are trending this year, so you can’t go wrong with getting yourself a pair of these shoes. See how you like the ones that I found.
I just happened to find the floral pink tank top in my closet, and I thought the small green pattern that ran through it would make the outfit look more put together. I love buying patterned items that have different colors because you have a wide variety to match with. I went to Chicos and found a huge amount of items that I loved (a few are linked) and they have a great sale going on. Here is the link for that. I ordered me about 5 or 6 items, and I would have ordered more, but I am not sure how their clothing fits. This will be my trial phase and I am hoping that the things I ordered will be able to make the blog.
Ever since I started buying products from Rodan + Fields, the prices have been the same. The other day they announced that they would be having a 4% price increase on their products beginning March 1st. I love that they are open about their price increase and that they give you time to place your order for products that you might be wanting before they increase in price. The prices have been rising in other brands, food, gas, and have you looked at the price of milk, etc., but you usually have no warning until you go to make the purchase. If you have been thinking about hopping onboard R+F to start this amazing skin care line, now would be the time to make the plunge especially if you are wanting to purchase a bundle (regimen + lash boost, etc. set) because they are at a 20% discount from buying each item separately. Also, if you purchase as a Preferred Customer, then you will also receive an extra 10% off and free shipping. Message me (firstname.lastname@example.org) for details or questions. Go here to take the Solutions Tool to see what products the doctors would recommend for you.
