Today, I am wearing my heart on my chest for all of you to see. When I woke up yesterday morning and saw all of the comments that you had “voted” for the house that my dad and brother built, big tears started streaming down my face. People act like the connections that you make on social media aren’t real, but I am here to proclaim otherwise. I do feel like we are friends, and some of you, I would recognize if I met you walking down the street because of FaceBook. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to make my day!
Also, instead of waiting to the very end to announce the winner of the Pave Drop earrings, I wanted to tell you the winner now. It is Sue Epling, so be sure to watch for the email and reply to me with your address. I love having giveaways and rewarding those of you who take time out of your busy day to leave a comment. All of us are busy and are pulled in lots of different directions. So, the fact that you take the time to read my blog, much less leave a comment is not something that I take for granted. I want to say how much I appreciate all of you, and I hope that you get something from my blog. ?
The gray sweater with the red sequinned heart that I am wearing today is one that I bought back in the fall. I loved the single heart design, and I knew that it would be perfect for Valentine’s Day as well as Heart Month, which is February. According to healthfinder.gov, “heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States. Every year, 1 in 4 deaths are caused by heart disease.” The great news is that it can be prevented. So, join me and let’ all choose to do something every day for exercise and make good food choices. I love all of you too much to see you be a statistic. Here are the warning signs for heart attack and stroke that I got off of Go Red for Women!
I am wearing my Diana Kut From The Kloth jeans. These were my first jeans from this brand, and I loved them so much that I bought several more. The website says that these jeans run large, and they suggest sizing down. However, I am wearing my usual size 10, and they fit me perfectly. If you have any experience with this brand, be sure to let me know your thoughts on the sizing. Also, these are on sale for 40% off, so this is the perfect time to grab a pair. Here is the link to the jeans.
I added a red layering tank under the gray sweater. Everyone needs basic essential items, and I took the time last year to order several of these tanks in several different colors. They are simple, sleeveless tanks that are great for wearing under cardigans and jackets. These tanks are microfiber, and they have a slim fit. I have some in a 1.5, and then I have a few in a 2 so that they fit looser. The one that I am wearing today is a 1.5, so it is not one that I would probably wear without a top layer. You don’t need to see any of my bulges. Lol! Here is the link to the tank, and around 30 different colors.
As I said earlier, the gray sweater is an old one from Loft. I like wearing items with a heart on it throughout the year, not just on Valentine’s Day. I wore a heart sweater that I had worn on the blog before (here) to Bristol the other day, and it got me several compliments. You can add hearts to your wardrobe as jewelry also. That is an easy way to look festive without spending a ton of money. Here are a few suggestions that I found today.
On Monday, my blogger friends and I talked about how Galentine’s Day, Feb. 13th, which is a celebration of female friends. In that spirit, Rodan + Fields has done their very first collaboration with another company. Anastasia of Beverly Hills is a brand that I currently use, so I love that we have partnered with the best brow products out there. I did a brow tutorial in September 2018, showing you how to do your eyebrows using the products from Anastasia of Beverly Hills. What a perfect pairing…the best brow products and the best skincare. This is a special kit only available to Rodan + Fields at a great discounted price. If you are my current customer, then you can place your order while supplies last. If you are not my customer but are interested in this product, then send me a message.
