Goodness, this week got away from me. I can’t believe that it is Friday already. Don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining. But, I sat down to write the blog last night and forgot that on Fridays I try to do a video. This whole blog issue mess has made me a little crazy. Please be sure to let me know if you experience any problems so that I can alert them and get everything fixed back. I already had a video filmed, not the best production, but it gets the point across. Lol! It is the capsule wardrobe that I “might” have taken with me if I had been traveling across the country with my daughter. I am showing you my outfits and how to pack everything in a carry on suitcase. I hope you enjoy the video. Please be sure to comment.
I needed some color in my life today. Whew! It has been a crazy day or two for the blog. I am not that tech-savvy and talking to technical people about issues that I can’t describe is a challenge. Then, they have a challenge in trying to “dumb” it down for me so that I can understand. Lol! I take solace in knowing that there are probably even LESS tech-savvy people than me out there that they have to talk to. At least I would like to think that there are.
Problems, problems, problems. We all have those days. The ones where it seems like nothing can go right. That would have been yesterday. When I sat down to write my blog post last night I couldn’t get the website to load. Occasionally WordPress has small periods of time when the sites are down for maintenance so I didn’t think anything about it. The grandbabies came over and I fixed supper for all of us. After we had all eaten, I went back to start on the post-again……NO WEBSITE! That was not normal so I called my hosting company to see what was going on. It apparently was not an easy fix. It WAS apparently a fix that would end up costing me 236.91. And, it was a fix that could take up to 72 hours. 🙁 Thankfully they have resolved most of the problems and I should be back up at full speed by this afternoon. Sorry for the issue, but, I wanted to let you know that it was no because I wasn’t feeling well that the blog was not posted. I can’t wait to see everyone again tomorrow!!!
Good morning from the hills of Virginia. I am trying to fight off Joe’s “Man Flu” and so far all it has become is a “Woman’s Cold” and I am crossing my fingers that is stays that way. I was supposed to have had my hair “done” yesterday and I need a cut and color in the worst way. But, I knew that my face would be right in my hairdresser’s face when she was washing and rinsing my hair so I called her and asked her if she wanted to switch me around with someone. She jumped on that and called me back with a new appointment. If I make her sick then she couldn’t work and make money. People really need to think about going outside the house when they are sick.
I am channeling my inner Johnny Cash today. Lol! Even though black is not my signature color, I do occasionally feel the need to drag it out of my closet. This weekend has been crazy. I had my little blonde haired whirlwind over and she kept me on my toes. However, my toes were not feeling the best this weekend. I think Joe has managed to give me some of his “man flu” and I haven’t felt the best. Then, the temperatures decided to drop and I just can’t seem to get warm. Brrrr, I don’t know how anyone who lives in the northern states ever gets used to the cold.
I like listening to different sermons through the week on YouTube and on Podcast. There are tons of sermons and plenty of content to pick and choose from so everyone should be able to find something that speaks you. I am not sure what sermon that I was listening to but the message stuck with me through the week. It was on having faith even when it didn’t make sense.
I don’t know if your husband is anything like mine but if he is then your life is colorful. And by colorful, I mean that you will shake your head all the time at some of his antics. Joe has an “I don’t care what they think” attitude that runs a mile wide. He doesn’t even consider someone else’s opinion when it comes to most things. And, that is especially true when it comes to fashion and the outfits that he picks out to wear.
Hi everyone!!! It is Friday and that means that it is time for a video. Today, I chose to try my hand at doing a Smokey Eye! I have actually read some ladies who are older who have said when you reach a “certain” age that you should not wear much (if any) eyeshadow. As you can already see, I might disagree with that statement. Lol! I love makeup and I feel that if used correctly it will enhance your already natural beauty. Sooooo, let’s check out the video and see how I did.
I will be so glad when Hurricane season is over. I hate seeing all of the destruction that has been done from these storms and it is just painful to know that so many people have lost everything that they own in these storms. Hurricane Michael hit in the area that I was just in, Rosemary Beach, and I hated seeing that gorgeous area being devastated and I am praying for everyone safety. I also hate seeing this storm move toward the Carolina’s which had so much rain from the previous Hurricane and they don’t need any more heading their way. Mother Nature is beautiful but she sure can pack a mean punch when she feels like it.
The best-laid plans of mice and men is a term that I have heard before and it appears that I am living it. Lol! My daughter is already starting to drive me crazy and she is not even home yet. Remember on yesterday’s blog how I was telling you that I might be driving across country with my daughter? Yeah, well, that might not be happening. I was starting to get into the whole idea of all of the places that I could go and see. I ordered some of those packing cubes that I have heard everyone brag on just so I could see if they really worked. I ordered a car inverter so that I could plug up my computer as we traveled down the road so that I could work on the blog. And then, I got a text from my daughter today……“Heard anything from the court? Andy said he’ll travel cross country with me if you can’t go.” Let me translate this message. Mom, my (ex???) boyfriend is going to drive across country with me and I don’t need you anymore. Lol! “know it’ll be hard for you with the blog and you’ll be rushed for time, but we’d have a great time I think. He would be fun because he’d drive a lot and would be down for exploring a lot, but it might take a bit longer than 7 days.” Looks like my trip is slowly flying out the window, at least for today. With her, the plans could change again tomorrow. I told Joe that since I had asked the court for the time off because I had a vacation planned, we had to go somewhere. Lol! I don’t want to lie to the federal government. 😲I am feeling relaxed today. I got this beautiful printed shirt in my Trunk Club shipment this past month and it was perfect for the fall. I love my Trunk Club, I never have to leave home and I get to try on the items without going to the store. Since I don’t have many stores within a 2-hour drive, this has been a real time saver for me. I love the colors in the print and I especially like the cuffs. I have them pushed up right now but they are cute when worn down also. This top is by Lucky Brand which is a store that I used to shop in a lot for my daughter. I can’t believe that I forgot to put on my earrings. Lol! I had them laid out but went off and forgot to put them in first. At least I did remember to put on my Maeve bracelets and the Cooper necklace. The necklace has several different charms that dangle from beautiful purple beads. I truly am loving all of the fall jewelry from Plunder. I love mustards, navy, purples, and turquoise, so I am a happy camper. Lol! How do you like my shaggy shoes? These are not “shagging” shoes which I think are shoes that you wear to dance in, but they are instead shaggy. I love the fringe on these shoes but I can not get them to stay in place. If you notice, the strap down the middle has a loop that the top strap goes through and they tend to move back and forth. Oh well, they are so cute that they are worth the hassle. Lol!
I love my raw hem crop pants that I got from Old Navy several months ago. I love the raw hem trend and Joe agrees with me. I took a picture of his outfit that he wore today to show all of you how much of a “fashionista” he is. Lol! He has been wearing torn and ripped items of clothing forever. I promise you that he had much nicer things but these are the ones that he reaches for all of the time. Lol!!!
“Hi, Tania. I just had to let you know that after using the Reverse for over 2 weeks I can actually see a difference in my skin. This is the first product that has changed my skin for the better. I have used many different brands over the years and they were ok but my skin stayed the same. No real improvement. But I am convinced that this does work and I was skeptical. So I’m hooked. I just got the new Radiant Defense today and look forward to using it. And like you said, the color I got was darker than I would have thought but when I did the skin matching it looked perfect. I’ll let you know how that works out. I had a sample of the Hydration Serum for my face and lips and just now tried them both. It’s amazing how soft they make my skin. I especially like the lip serum because I’m constantly putting Aquaphor on them. Thanks for introducing (and convincing) me to take a chance with this brand. I know now why you use it and sell it. It’s terrific.”
This made me so happy!!! I really do worry about everyone who orders from me and I want them to experience the best results possible. Emails like this let me know that by sharing my love of the products that others have been able to experience them for themselves. Thanks for the sweet and much-appreciated email! 😘
You are used to seeing my little blondie in my pictures but today I had another visitor for a change. Little man hasn’t gotten the “look at the camera” down like his big sister but I bet he will by next year. Lol!
