Happy Friday!!! I am feeling much better, and my energy level is sky-high. You know that I love reading/listening to self-development books, and I recently read one that was short and sweet. I have the Audible app, and I purchase the audible books from Amazon and listen to them when I walk, get dressed, or can’t sleep at night. To keep from bothering Joe, I will insert my AirPods so that he never knows that I am even awake.
The book that I listened to is called The Energy Bus (here is the link) and only took me a little over two hours from start to finish. I am usually a “half full” kind of gal anyway, but this book was very motivating about making sure that you don’t have energy vampires around you. An Energy Vampire is someone negative all the time, and they can suck the life right out of you. I bet every one of you can think of someone you know who fits this description. By the time that you finish the book, you realize that you have the choice of how your day is going to unfold. You can’t control events that happen in your life, but you can control how you respond, and that will control the outcome. If you have read this book, please comment on your takeaway.
It would be hard to negative is such a bright and colorful jacket. Adding a bright and colorful piece of clothing is a simple way to brighten up your entire day. This hot pink jacket/blazer is by Court & Rowe, and this is a real show-stopper. The gold crested buttons add a ton of elegance to this jacket. It seems like I am on a button craze lately, did you see my post on Wednesday? This jacket has a striped lining, but I didn’t get a photo of that. You are bound to be happy in this jacket, and I am positive that you will get noticed. Lol! Here is the link to the jacket.
I haven’t been in a jewelry mood lately, but today’s look called for me to bring out the bling. I’ll start with the earrings from Kendra Scott. These are the Sophee Drop earrings in gold, but they also come in silver, rose gold, and gunmetal. I love the shape of these earrings; they are so flattering for your face. The Easton hoops in silver caught my attention, and I just placed an order for those. I loved the sleek geometric shape of those, and I can’t wait to get them to try them out. Here is the link to the Sophee earrings, and here is the link to the Easton hoops.
The mixed metallic Y necklace is from White House Black Market. I wore it with my New Year’s Eve outfit, but it has sold out. I’ll link to several others that I saw that I liked. The last things that I have on are my bracelets. I am wearing the Logan cuff from The Styled Collection, the Lelani gold link bracelet from Plunder, and the Maggie gold filigree bangle bracelet by Kendra Scott.
I had to wear these jeweled flats from the Loft outlet today. I love the sparkly jeweled bow on these shoes and how they are stylish and fun looking. Even though they have “bling” on the toes, they still look great with jeans. These are for all of you ladies who love cute flats! Here is the link to the shoes.
Here is the dreaded back/side view of my tweed cuff jeans from Chico’s. I love the way that these jeans look and fit. They have the unique details (pearls and tweed at the cuff) that I look for in my clothing. And, they have a relaxed vibe as well as a dressy vibe. The combination of both casual and dressy is hard to achieve. I sent back the size 1.5 and reordered the size 1, and I am so glad. Size 1 fits me perfectly!!! Here is the link to the jeans.
The black leather belt that I am wearing is by Madewell. First off, I can’t believe that I am wearing a belt because I never want to draw attention to my waistline. This is a look that I like on other people, but it is one that I have shied away from wearing. I finally decided to bite the bullet and go for it. The belt is called the “perfect leather belt,” and it has lived up to its name so far. I am wearing a large, and it is big on me. But, I don’t mind that because if I decide to wear it around my hips, it would need to be bigger. Here is the link to the belt.
Just like yesterday’s post, today I am wearing a classic and a must-have wardrobe staple. A simple black v-neck tee is so versatile, and you can wear them alone or as layering pieces. Also, because it is a short sleeve t-shirt, you can wear this all year round, making it a great building basic.
So many of you have messaged me about trying to find the fountain of youth. As far as I know, there is no such thing, but I do believe that I have found the next best thing. I am amazed when I look back at my photos when I started blogging because I think that I genuinely look younger. Who wouldn’t want that? Does anyone want to look older???
I am going to be giving away a “mini” or a travel size regimen to some lucky winner. Go to HERE and take the solutions tool to be entered. This will tell me which regimen you need if your name is picked. Today is the last day to enter; the winner will be announced on Saturday’s blog post. Please, do not enter if you are already a current customer of mine or anyone else’s. I want someone who has never tried the products to get their hands on these products.
How is your memory???
Have you done any of the following? Walked into a room and forgot why you went into the room? Drove by the place that you were supposed to turn off? Or, maybe you have been telling a story and forgot what you were saying???
