Okay, I am horribly indecisive. I miss not talking about my life at the beginning of my posts, and I thought it was so sweet of you ladies to comment that part of the reason you follow my blog is my personal stories. I believe that I let that “comparison” bug bite me, and I thought that I needed to be more like other bloggers. The comments about me being real, genuine, and authentic made my day. So, it looks like I am back to my old format, at least for now.
I have actually tried to make it a rule that I don’t look at other blogs very often. I love blogs, and I love other bloggers, but when you look at their blogs, you run the risk of being influenced by their fashion and style. When I first started blogging, I thought that I needed to be like everyone else. That meant that I needed to dress a certain way and to talk a certain way. After a couple of months of trying to be someone that I wasn’t, I gave up and decided just to be me. Whether you liked me or not, at least it would be “me” and not someone else’s style. That is when I started to talk about my life and family. Heck, all of you know that I didn’t go to school for fashion, so what else was I going to talk about? Then the “you’re a real person, you are just like me, I like that you’re not a size 0” comments started to come. Remind me that it is not about the numbers, the amount of sponsored posts, or the comments that I receive. It is about being authentic to myself because I am unique…and so are you!
Both of these items that I am wearing today are from the “capsule wardrobe” that I created here. I chose at least one blouse to put in my capsule wardrobe, and I tried to pick a blouse that could be worn with jeans or with slacks or a skirt. I also tried to pick a neutral print, so that it wouldn’t be an item that stood out in someone’s mind. That is different than my usual approach of wanting an item with unique details. In a capsule wardrobe, you are limited to how many clothing items you have, so you want to be able to wear them multiple times without someone noticing.
Here we have the Dallin earrings once again. Lol! The gold necklace is the Vienna necklace, but it is out of stock at this time. Be sure to check back often to see if they have replenished this necklace.
Sailor inspired clothing is a hot trend. I have purchased several items with the sailor style buttons, and I love how they look. This Ponte skirt is one that I bought at Cato Fashions, so you know that it is affordable. Can you say only 12.99 for misses and 8.99 for the plus size? Did you see that? That is a first since buying a Plus size is never cheaper than the misses sizes. Take advantage of this deal while you can!
Last night I had a Facebook event to give you information about R+F products. You can still go to that event and watch the two different videos until Sunday. One video is on the different regimens, and one is on the “add-on” products such as Lash Boost. I was on a team ZOOM call last night, where we were discussing all of the different reasons that each of us loves the business. The answers differed from person to person. I loved that I had joined a reputable company that had tremendous growth potential and products that work. My EBF loves the community and the fun aspect. She loves getting to travel and dress up for events, and the perks that R+F showers on us. Several ladies mentioned that they loved being able to work the business when they wanted. One was a caregiver for her father, and she was so happy that this business allowed her the freedom to be with him when he needed her. There are lots of reasons why this opportunity is one that you need to take seriously. I would love for you to join me on a ZOOM call this coming Thursday night (tonight) at 8:00 pm EST. ZOOM is a free app that you can download (here) to any device. ZOOM allows us to talk and see each other, which enables you to ask questions if you wish. To join the call, you download the app and then hit the Join A Meeting button and type in this number: 575-241-0946 Remember, knowledge is power, and you can never have enough knowledge. This is an easy-going simple call with NO obligation. I hope to see you there!!!
