Holy Cow! Have you ever seen a plant this huge??? I have no idea what this sucker is, but it looks like an Aloe plant on steroids. Joe and I had a couple of friends come and visit with us for a few days. Joe went golfing with Troup and I went shopping with Lilliana. We had a beautiful day to stroll the streets and shop in some of the local boutiques. We crossed the street to head back to the resort and I spotted these humongous plants. I told Lilliana that I had to go and have my pictures made with these things to show them to all of you. I had to be careful when I was posing though because at the end of each leaf was a long spike. I turned my head once and came within inches of that spike poking me in the face. I was a whole lot more careful after that experience. Lol! I bought a few things, mostly clutches, and handbags, but Lillanna really racked up. She bought a lot of things and they all looked great on her. We have already made plans for another trip in March and have been scoping out all of the shops that we will hit next. Lol! Joe and Troup are happy to let us go shopping as long as they can go golfing. I love it when everyone is happy and each gets to go their separate ways. I don’t want to have to go riding around in the golf cart and I know for a fact that Joe has no interest in going with me shopping. Lol! I bought this cocoon cardigan while I was visiting my sister last week. We went to have a manicure and pedicure and then she needed to run in Target to buy a few things to take home for supper. Gurls, I have told you that I can find things to buy almost anywhere, and Target had a LOT that I ended up buying. I loved the pale pink or blush color of the cardigan, but the way it is draped is what really sold me on the sweater. This cozy cocoon style wraps around your body and hugs your legs for a flattering look. The open style cardigan is easy to wear since you don’t have to worry about buttons or hooks and you can wear this with a lot of different looks. It comes in a lot of different colors and at the price, 22.99, you can afford to buy several. Go here for the link. This cute white clutch was one of my purchases today. I have a large white handbag, but I have been wanting something smaller to be able to carry with me in the Spring and Summer. This came with a shoulder strap inside the clutch, so I will be able to wear this easily when I am shopping or doing something where I need my hands free. I can see me carrying this to church, to lunch dates, summer weddings, etc., because it is so versatile. I caught this on the clearance rack and I bought it for half price!!! It doesn’t have a brand name on it but I found a couple of nice clutches online.
These two plants were planted side by side in a small park-like area right off the street. I am still just amazed at how large these plants were. I haven’t seen anything like these unless they were in a Tropical Rainforest. These quilted sneakers matched my cardigan perfectly, and they were so comfortable for walking and shopping. I don’t wear this style shoe often, but I have to admit that they were great while we were out and about. I was a little worried that they would rub my ankle because I hate wearing socks, but they didn’t bother me in any way. I can’t believe that I am going to say this…I might have to look into a few more “dress” sneakers for my everyday looks. What do you gurls think? Are shoes like this a yes or a no? Here is where you can get your own pair of Reese quilted sneakers under 25.00. Here is a photo tip…don’t take the photos from a perspective lower than yourself. These plants were on an incline, and the lighting for taking the pictures meant that my friend had to be below me. The issue is that your chin (double or triple) is highlighted and makes it look even more noticeable than it normally would be if the same photograph were taken on an even surface or from above.
Tomorrow is the big day when Spotless is available to be purchased. I have already had a huge response to this new 2-step product for teens and young adults. I was amazed when I read the stats that said 85% of teens and young adults have acne and that acne is their number one skin concern. I have had a lot of moms and grandmothers reaching out to me to see how they can get this for their loved ones. That makes me so happy to think that I could play a small part in a child having clear skin and their confidence level being elevated. Email me if you want more information. [email protected]
