Do you ever have one of those days where you would have been better off staying in bed? That is what my dad should have done last week instead of going to work. My father is a contractor, and he and his men have been working on a cabin. He does the finishing work for Honest Abe Log Homes. When he came home the other day, he noticed a tiny dot on him. He told my mom to come and look; he was pretty sure that it was a tick.
Mom got the tweezers to pick it off and found another one beside it. She said they were only about the size of the point of an ink pen. In a few minutes, he noticed another one, so mom suggested that he go an take a shower and see if there were any more. When he took off his shirt, his chest had a bunch all over him. They got all of those off, but every time he took off an article of clothing, more ticks were found. He even found some on the bottom of his foot. He took a good bath, and they sprayed his hat and clothing down to try to make sure that none escaped. He went to work the next day, and then he found a couple more. The men who were working with him also found several on them. Apparently, they had stumbled upon a nest of baby ticks. I didn’t even know that ticks made nests, but they do. The internet said that when they were that small that they don’t carry Lyme disease, which is the only good thing about the story. It makes me itch just thinking about all of the ticks.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3tiPndMqxLQI decided this weekend to do a series for you since I haven’t done one in a while. It is all about making your wardrobe stretch farther by wearing your items in multiple ways. I am going to be using this little black swing dress for every outfit this week, and we will see what you think about my styles. I bought this black swing dress from Old Navy a couple of years ago. I have worn it multiple times, and I plan on wearing it more in the future. Black is a staple, and it can be worn with any color, which makes it very versatile. Here is the link to a black swing dress from Old Navy.
The only piece of jewelry that I added to my look is the Lenora necklace. My thought for this outfit was a run around town look. I wanted this to be an everyday, laid back look, so I grabbed a showy necklace and figured that was enough jewelry. If I am puttering around the house and decide to run to town, then I will grab a couple of pieces of jewelry, and then head out the door. Jewelry makes an outfit!
I love these new loafers that I bought from Nordstrom. I think the colors are perfect for this coming fall, and I will wear them a lot with jeans. A bunch of you have said that you don’t like a snake print, even if it is on a shoe, but I think that this is super cute. I didn’t take a close up of the shoes, but you can see them on the website, and you will see that they have silvery studs all over them. They are adorable!!! Here is the link.
When I first started using Rodan + Fields products, I tried my hardest to get Joe to use them also. He has sun damage on his face from playing golf with no hat, and he has some lines around his eyes. But, he refused because he said that he was pretty enough. Lol! One day at work, he said, “is that “roller thing” your using supposed to help get rid of lines and wrinkles?” I was thinking that he was going to make fun of me for believing that the roller would work, so I very cautiously told him, “yes, it is supposed to help with lines and wrinkles. Why are you asking about it?” That is when he told me that he had secretly been using the roller for about a week. He showed me his eyes and told me that he was shocked, but he could see a difference. I was thrilled and told him to keep using it, and I would buy me another one. But, he said no, he just wanted to see if it would work. What do you do with a man like that? Lol! The reason that I am telling you that story is because that “roller thing” can help you with lines and wrinkles, and it can also get you a free lip serum. Rodan + Fields just announced a great incentive, and that is only available until the end of the month. When you place an order for the AMP MD System, or a Regimen/AMP IT UP Special, then they are gifting you a FREE Lip Serum. When you buy the AMP IT UP special bundle, you are getting an extra 20% off of the purchase price if you had bought the AMP MD System by itself. Plus, when you become my Preferred Customer, you will get an extra 10% off. Gurls, that is some serious savings!!! Here is the link where you can find all of these specials. This special is available to all new OR existing Preferred Customers. Here is how you order: click on the link above, pick the products you want and put them in your cart. When you have added all the product(s), then you click on the shopping cart icon to go and checkout. You will see a small blue box that says Join PC Perks, and you need to check that. Then you fill out the billing and shipping information and hit continue until you get a confirmation number. Your products will arrive in 3-5 days, so you need to get a good picture taken. No makeup, hair pulled back, and good lighting will give you the best photo. I will stand in front of a window, but not in direct sunlight, and I let someone take my picture. The selfie camera doesn’t have as good of a camera as the rear-facing camera.
