We had elections here in Virginia yesterday. I don’t know if everyone had elections throughout the US, but we had a lot of local elections here in the county. I could never run for public office; I am too big a coward. There can only be one winner, so someone has to lose. That would kill my soul to think that people didn’t want me. I am not sure how people run for office over and over again, even if they get beat handily. Joe has talked about running for office, but I always do my best to talk him out of that.
Even if you get elected to the position, there is no guarantee that you can accomplish anything. I don’t do politics, but from what I have been able to gather, no one wants to work with anyone else. It seems like it is a big tug of war game going on all the time, and no one is willing to give an inch. I can’t imagine if the job that I was doing would be voted on every four years. I am sure that would change the whole way that you do everything. You would be afraid to make waves because people would bring it up in four years to use it against you. I hate it when people lose, but I hate it when they win also. They have no idea what they have gotten themselves in for. As Joe told one lady, who had just won an election, “remember, you asked for this.” She saw him a couple of years after the election and told him that he had been right. Lol! She hadn’t had any idea what was coming her way.
And, when you read my blog, you have no idea what will be coming your way either. I could be talking about grandchildren one minute, and then elections the next. Lol! Now, we are actually going to move on to fashion. (shock!) I am wearing a paisley print duster today. I found this at a local boutique, and I fell in love with all of the colors. There are reds, purples, greens, yellows, and probably several more colors that I haven’t mentioned. When I find a clothing item with that many colors, my mind starts calculating how many ways that it can be styled. The more colors, the more ways to style. This duster is by L Love, and the only thing I hate about buying boutique clothing is the fact that I can’t find it on the internet. I know you like to have the “exact” item that I am wearing, but I can’t always find the link. Sorry 🙁
I am wearing the Shannon necklace, the Sheridan and Starley bracelets, and the Lucianna earrings. It is a mixture of gold and silver, which I could never imagine doing years ago. Now, I mix gold and silver all the time, and I love not having to do pick one or the other.
My faux suede ankle boots are several years old, and I have been looking to get a new pair. This pair is from Old Navy, and I have gotten my monies worth out of them, and then some. These run true to size, and I am wearing a size 9. I just saw that these are on sale for 25.00, and here is the link. This (here) is the new pair of booties that I am thinking about purchasing. What do you think???
My cuffed skinny jeans make it so easy to wear ankle booties. With these jeans, I never have to worry if my cuffs are even. I can’t remember if this pair of jeans are from Cato Fashions or if they are a pair from Kut From The Kloth because they are almost identical. Both of those brands were true to size in the jeans.
This lace camisole looks redder than it is. The true color is more wine, and I like how this fits. The color and the fit are both nice, but the price is fantastic! You can check that out for yourself by clicking here, and BTW, I am wearing a large for sizing purposes.
I loved all of your suggestions for upcoming giveaways. I have a few planned for the future, thanks to all of your suggestions. I am going to start the giveaways with one of my favorite Rodan + Fields products. It is the Active Hydration Body Replenish body moisturizer. This ultra-hydrating body moisturizer is for noticeably softer, smoother, and more nourished skin. A breakthrough body moisturizing cream, it delivers immediate and continuous body hydration and helps prevent future moisture loss, resulting in younger-looking, younger-acting skin. This is perfect for the upcoming winter, which can wreak havoc on our skin.
