Let’s all sing together. Happy Birthday to You, Happy Birthday to You, Happy Birthday to JOE… Happy Birthday to You!!! Did someone chime in, “and many more?” Lol! Yep, today is my hunny bunny’s birthday! If he reads this, he will cringe at me calling him a hunny bunny. Haha! He has this bad boy image to keep up, and it is hard to keep that image if someone is calling you a hunny bunny. Lol! Do you think that I said hunny bunny enough times in this paragraph? LOL!!! Now, that I wished Joe a happy birthday, I want to remind you that today is Friday with Friends. Some of you might remember my friend, Susanne Thompson from Thompson Hill Blog. She came to Grundy back last summer with Greg and Snickers. Susanne is a sweetheart and gorgeous, but little Snickers is a heartthrob! I keep trying to talk her into meeting again somewhere soon so be sure to give her a nudge in the right direction.
Joe is a dichotomy in a lot of ways. He is “hell on wheels” if you make him mad. He is a fierce protector of his family. He will give anyone the shirt off of his back, and takes care of those he feels can’t take care of themselves. But, he can also cuss you so that a fly won’t land on you if you have a difference of opinion. He is a mess, but he is my mess, and I love him to pieces. Did I ever tell you about the first time that I saw him? He had just moved into the apartment above me, and he came down the stairs and knocked on the door. When I answered the door, he said that he wanted to introduce himself to me, and then he left. He had a buzz cut hairstyle, wore pressed khaki pants, a white button-down shirt, and had on tasseled penny loafers. My first thoughts were…” he wouldn’t be any fun,” and that just goes to show you how wrong a first impression can be.
Are you sick of pink yet? I promise that this is the last pink post that I will do this week. Lol! I am not mentioning the cardigan since it is the same one that I wore in this post, and you can read about it there. Instead, let’s talk about this adorable light pink gingham button-up shirt. This was a clearance item purchase at Old Navy, and you won’t believe the price. It was a whopping 3.99! It is amazing the deals you can get on clothing when it is the offseason; you just have to wait for months before you can wear them is the problem. I normally want to wear a new item as soon as I buy it, so waiting is not easy for me. This shirt is not a front-tie shirt, but as you can see, you can make almost any button-up shirt into this trendy style.
I love adding turquoise to my pink outfits. Turquoise is the perfect shade of blue to complement pink, or it is in my opinion. The Makia earrings are already sold out, and I doubt that they will restock them. You will be seeing me saying that things are sold out a lot until they launch the new spring catalog. The Brylee and the Eden are both in stock, and they would look just as cute. The Challis necklace is the short turquoise rectangle, the Joan necklace is the long dainty necklace with the long turquoise rods, and the Serena necklace is the long one on the brown cord. Be sure when you visit my website to check the Plundermania and the Going, going, gone categories to check out some special clearance items.
I am so white that my legs and my shoes all blend in together. Lol! I hope to change that this weekend because I am going to start my faux tanning process. I love the look of a tan, but I hate the tanning process. It doesn’t matter if it is by lotions, sprays, or even by the sun, I hate them all. They are the necessary evil process to get me the look that I want. Lol! These Clark Nubuck (here) leather perforated shoes are comfortable as well as stylish. These were c/o QVC, and I can’t thank them enough for sending them to me. BTW, they come in 5 different colors if this sand is not your jam.
I bought these jeans the other day at the local boutique in town. I like the distressing at the hemline instead of higher up on the legs. I have seen this style in the stores online, so this must be part of the upcoming trends this spring. I like how it shows your ankles without me having to create a cuff. My cuffs aren’t even half the time, so this is a much easier look to accomplish.
Remember to go and check out Susanne today and tell her that I said hello.
Looking your best has a huge effect on your self-esteem. Fashion is something that I use to help me feel more confident, and my skincare routine is another. The funny thing is, I didn’t know that I lacked confidence until I started getting it. Now, I realize that I would shrink into the background because I was unsure of my outfit, my makeup, my hairstyle, etc. I feel like I have a glow about me now, part is from my Reverse regimen, and the rest is from the confidence that I now have that I look the best that I can. Which photo do you think that she felt the most confident? Join my Facebook group to find out how you can have more confidence, thanks to R+F, AND I am offering a special today in that group that will run through Sunday night. Don’t have Facebook? Message me instead, and I will share the deal with you. firstname.lastname@example.org
