It has been three loooong weeks, but my house has finally been completely painted. It will probably be another three loooong weeks before I get all of the things put back in place, but it is starting to look better already. I loved my painters, and they did a great job painting the house. They also did things that went above and beyond what they had to do, and that was huge in my book. They fixed a couple of holes in the walls, popped nail heads, re-did some sheetrock issues, painted two mirrors for me, and even cleaned out my dryer hose and taped it all back together.
These ladies showed up on time and never missed a day. That might sound like that is normal, but anytime that you deal with contract labor, that is not always the case. Plus, when they were here, they worked instead of talking. Joe and I are delighted with the results of the house, and we are now looking at revamping the master bathroom. That will be a significant undertaking, so I hope that we put that off for a couple of months. I need to get the rest of my house put back together before I take on another project. Lol! Once the rooms are cleaned up and cleared out, I’ll try and take some photos for you, but you might be disappointed. Home decor is not my strong suit.
I don’t buy as much boutique clothing as I used to. I still love their clothing, but it is tough to find the same items online for you gurls to purchase. I found a new online boutique website, so I ordered this tie-dye sweatshirt to check out their quality. I liked the shirt, so I quickly went outside to take a few photos. Of course, once I got the pictures and uploaded them, the top is no longer on their website. That is another problem with boutique stores; they don’t carry much inventory. This top is by LoveStitch, and I am wearing a medium which fits me great. I found a top almost exactly like this on Amazon when I placed a huge try-on order (look for that next week), and I’ll link to that one plus a couple more below. BTW, you might have noticed that my picture links look different. I am trying out a new affiliate for links, and I liked the option that was available to you called Sales Alert. If you want one of the items, but it is too expensive for your budget, then click the heart, and it will send you an email once the items go on sale.
The Easton geometric silver hoop earrings are one of the first purchases that I made from Kendra Scott. I love these earrings, and I think that they are modern looking. Round hoop earrings are a classic style, and I love them, but I believe that these geometric hoops say “young and modern,” and that is a statement that I like. I added the JAE star bracelet and the Rue cuff bracelet to my look. Both of these are dainty bracelets, and they are complementary pieces, instead of statement pieces. The statement piece that I added is the Indigo Long-Tassel Necklace. My entire outfit was in tones of gray, so I added this silver necklace with the navy beads and tassel to add color to the look. I thought that the necklace “blended” and “popped” all at the same time.
I want you to quickly order these jeans if they appeal to you. This washed gray color is so hard to find, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they didn’t sell out quickly. These jeans are by Kut From The Kloth, one of my very favorite brands when it comes to jeans. I love the slight distressing on the legs and the raw hem. The skinny legs, high rise, raw hem, and washed gray color make these jeans very modern and casual looking. They are a home run in my book!!! I am wearing my usual size 30 in the jeans, and they fit me perfectly.
You will be happy to know that I was able to get all of my shoes back on the shelves finally, so you will see me wearing something other than these Sperry Crest Vibe sneakers soon. Lol! I love these sneakers, but they don’t go with EVERYTHING! Haha! The no-tie laces are perfect for slipping these sneakers on and heading out of the door. These sneakers are a blend of fashion and function, and that is the type of sneaker that I like. I am wearing an 8 1/2 instead of my usual size 9, and I would suggest sizing down if you are looking at these sneakers. Sneakers have become the latest fashion “must-have” item. Sneakers are more than just running shoes; they can cost you upwards of $500.00 dollars. Be sure to check out some of the ones below that are trending at this moment.
I know that you like a “behind” photo, so here you go. I am terrible at these kinds of pictures since I can’t see how it looks in the camera. If you could see my face, you would probably see a big smile on my face since I always smile when the timer is counting down to take the photos. Lol!
In the comments on yesterday’s post, a lot of ladies mentioned how they had loved the Hair Biology products since I posted about them the last time. I appreciate it when you comment that something I recommended or styled works for you. I occasionally get private messages that your children, co-workers, spouse, or friends have been noticing that you are dressing differently or better. These kinds of messages not only make me very happy; they also encourage others to step outside their comfort zone and try something new. Thanks so much for all of the comments!!!
Every month I am having a new incentive and giveaway for Rodan + Fields. This month it is all about a routine. People tend to pick and choose products instead of getting on a regimen that is specially formulated to work together. All of our regimens come as a 4-piece set, and each product is designed to work with the next product. They are numbered so that you don’t have any confusion on which product to use when. This month’s special is going to be, purchase any regimen, add Active Hydration Serum, and I’ll gift you Redefine Multi-Function Eye Cream. (64.00 value for FREE) Purchase MUST be made as my Preferred Customer. Here is the Solutions Tool for you to take so that you will know what regimen you need.
Notice how my eyes are much more opened…this is because of the Redefine Eye Cream!!! I use it 2X a day, and I never miss using it! To place an order, click here, pick your products and add them to your cart, go to checkout and be sure to click JOIN PC PERKS to get 10% off the retail price, FREE shipping, and the extra product from me.
