This week I will once again be traveling to Nashville. I am going to a blogging conference (my first), and I hope to learn lots of useful tips and tricks for social media. If any of you are on FaceBook or Instagram, then you probably know a little bit about what I am talking about. They are continually changing the rules of engagement, and what you are doing one day doesn’t work the next day. It is a total pain in the rump for those of us who are dependant on getting our content out for people to see.
I know a few other bloggers who are going to be attending the conference also, and I can’t wait to meet them in person. I am going to be rooming with Jennifer Connolly from A Well Styled Life, and having dinner with Deborah Boland from Fabulous After 40, Cyndi Spivey, and Jo-Lynne Shane. I can’t wait to meet these wonderful ladies face to face, even if it is a little intimidating. These ladies have been blogging for a lot longer than me, and they know what they are doing. Lol! That part where I just linked to all of there websites is not something that I should do according to what I have been told. I am sending people “away” from my blog, instead of having people come “to” my blog. Oh well, I don’t care, these ladies are the best, and I hope to learn a lot from them while I am in Nashville.
Y’all, don’t get your hopes up that you can purchase this sweater. This sweater is over 33 years old!!! I purchased this sweater to go out on a date with Joe, and we will be celebrating our 33rd anniversary on Thursday. Sssh, don’t tell Joe that our anniversary is on Thursday because I will be in Nashville. We will have to celebrate when I get back in town. Lol! The crazy thing about fashion is that it keeps recycling itself. The huge oversized sweater is a HUGE trend right now. It is hard to wear oversized sweaters at first because you feel slouchy and, well, HUGE. I styled a sweater that you will see later this week, and I wasn’t sure how I felt about the style on me. My daughter-in-law loved the look, but she is a size 2, and that might make a difference. Lol!
Another HUGE trend is faux leather leggings. I wasn’t sure how I felt about this trend, but I decided to try the look for myself. In fact, I am going to be styling these Spanx faux leather leggings this entire week. I decided to go with the Spanx brand, even though I have found some cheaper options. The reason that I went with the Spanx brand is that I thought they would do a better job controlling any dimples that I might have on my legs. They do great!!! You will see what I am talking about later this week when you get a better look at the leggings. Spanx also has a moto version of these leggings if you want to go for the edgy look. You can channel your inner “Sandy” from Grease when you wear these. Lol!
I am still loving my over the knee boots that I purchased earlier this year. I love, love, love this color, and I like that they barely hit above my knee. These boots are part of the big Fall Sale going on right now from Nordstrom, but the sizes are already limited in this color. Here is the link so that you can check and see if you are one of the lucky ones who can buy these at 40% off. For those whose size is already sold out, I’ll link to a few different pairs. The Tory Burch handbag that I am carrying is gorgeous, and I feel like it can be worn with casual as well as dressy styles. This is one of the nicest handbags that I own, and it is super soft since it is made from lambskin. I like how you can carry is either long or short and that it looks great both ways. Here is the link to the bag, be sure to tell your hubby that this would make a great Christmas present. Haha!
I have shared this story before, but I have a good reason for sharing it again. When I went to an event in Nashville over a year ago, I went out to dinner with a couple of my R+F friends. While we were eating, one of the ladies wanted to know if I had ever used Botox. I told her no that I hadn’t. She said the reason that she asked was that I didn’t show my age anywhere, EXCEPT on my chest. That was an eye-opener for me, and a perfect call to action. I started using my Active Hydration Serum, just a drop, on my chest. And, when I can remember, I use the Redefine mask down on my chest, and I also use the AMP roller. I hadn’t thought about it in a long, but when I was taking photos on Saturday I noticed that my chest didn’t have any lines. Woohoo, no more cougar chest!!! If your chest is looking a little wrinkled, I can help! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to hear more.
