I am glad you gurls are looking forward to this series. I don’t normally do a lot of casual clothing so this is a little out of my comfort zone. It is kind of funny how I have waited until I am in my fifties to push my self out of my safe little bubble. You would think that I would just be settling down into a routine but instead I am expanding and growing. Just don’t anybody ask me to do any public speaking, I am not quite ready to be pushed that far yet. Lol! Here is a traveling tip for you. There are four of us that made the trip to San Diego for the SMMW convention. Three of us are women and you can be sure we brought plenty of clothes. When you have four people PLUS all of our luggage a normal vehicle won’t hold everything so you have a couple alternatives. You can either schedule a van for every one or two cars and getting two cars is cheaper. We went with the two cars route. Here is the tip, make sure you have two different people schedule the cars. We didn’t do that and Uber thought it was a mistake on our part. One car showed up and we loaded two people in that car with the luggage and almost left. My sister decided to go back and check to see how much longer it would be before the next car showed up. Uber had CANCELLED the other car!!! There was no way that two more people plus luggage were ever going to fit in the car we were in, so they ended up having to drive. The parking fees are going to be crazy high but there weren’t any Uber cars available at that time in the morning. We all finally made to the airport in plenty of time. One of us, and I am not going to say which one, had to open their suitcase and take shoes out and put in the carry on because they were 11 pounds overweight. Just wait until we are coming home. I think we have decided to buy another suitcase for all the purchases. Lol!I am glad everyone is looking forward to this series. Yesterday’s post was showing you a basic outfit with a t-shirt and jeans and the remaining posts this week will show you how to take this simple outfit and make it look different. Today I added a vest. This is a cute vest with lots of colors and an interesting print. This vest I purchased at Belk’s and it is by Crown and Ivy. The great thing about the vest is that it also adds some warmth. Spring is a crazy time of the year where it can be cool in the morning and scorching hot in the afternoon. Layering makes it easy to keep you comfortable.This is one of my favorite sets from Plunder. Changing your accessories is an easy and inexpensive way to change your look. The necklace is called Rosalie and the blue and pink accents along with the pearls just match this look. The matching dangle earrings are called Margaret. The long necklace with my initial is the Destiny. It is my go-to necklace anytime I want to wear gold.I actually only picked a couple of bracelets, shocker right? The Broedrick is the pink magnetic bangle bracelet and the Roxie is the spring colored cuff. Honestly, this cuff has not grown on me yet, it is just ok, not one of my favorites. I am not even sure which one of the boho bangles I have on. I closed my last party and opened a new one. I bet you can guess what the name is….www.plunderdesign.com/party/tania4 EVERY purchase (for the rest of March) over $50.00 (excluding tax and shipping) will be getting a 15% off discount check from me.Have you ever seen me in tennis shoes? Not the cute Converse style but the normal running and playing style? It is not my normal look, not even on the weekends. These shoes are probably 4 or more years old and they still look brand new. Lol! My sister insisted that I bring a pair with me to San Diego, I think she is going to try to give me a heart attack. If something happens to me you’ll know what the problem was. This pair is by Asics and this is the brand my daughter likes because they fit her narrow foot. You knew I would take the opportunity to carry my pink leather Vera Bradley tote. I love, love, love this purse! I can’t believe how versatile it is, I would never have believed how much I carry it. I think pink is like a leopard prit, it is a neutral and goes with everything. Lol! This is the medium size Ella tote, can you believe there is one larger than this? Casual and comfortable but still stylish. That is how I would describe this look. Accessories is what makes the outfit so go to your closet and see what you have that you can use to change a normal outfit you wear. Adding a scarf, necklace, purse, or jacket will make a HUGE difference. Just wait to see what I have in store for you tomorrow.
Some of you have emailed me about why I even bother with Rodan + Fields so I have thought about that and decided to share “my” story with you.
I started with Rodan and Fields back in March of 2016. I had watched my friend post about the products and her terrific results. But she “sold” the product so I couldn’t help but wonder if the products were really “that” good or was she just being a salesperson. After about two months of watching her another friend of mine, one that did not sell the products, posted on FaceBook how happy she was that she had tried Rodan and Fields and she even did a before and after picture. That was all I needed to give me the nudge I needed.
After a couple of weeks, I started to see results. I had tried many, many different products in the past but I would soon give up on them because I never saw any changes. I was THRILLED! For the first time ever I was actually taking care of my face. But, I was starting to run out of the regimen and I needed to reorder. My products had lasted me almost 3 months! I wanted to purchase them at the best possible price so I called my friend out of the blue and told her I wanted to signup. I explained to her that I had NO interest in selling the products because I was not a salesperson. I only wanted to be able to purchase for my personal use.
Fantastic!!! I now would be able to use two Regimens instead of just the one. Soon I started getting comments like, “what are you doing different? Your face is glowing.” “Have you changed your lighting because you seem to be glowing?” “Did you change your makeup? You are just glowing!” It actually took me a while to understand what they were talking about. I hadn’t changed anything, EXCEPT that I was now using Rodan and Fields. Talk about a light bulb moment. I didn’t think anyone was noticing.
Now I feel like it is my responsibility to tell EVERYONE! I know some of you will think the same thing I did, that I am only trying to “sell” you something. That is not the case. I started my blog, www.50isnotold.com because I wanted to help ladies after the age of 40 have more confidence about themselves. I chose the fashion avenue to help them look the best they could and not become frumpy. Why would I not tell them about something I LOVE that could help them with their face, the one thing they could not hide or cover up?
I am getting closer and closer to hitting the email subscribers 5000 mark!!! Once we hit the magic number I will be having a giveaway! I am going broke with giveaways!
PLEASE take the time to signup. Also, if you would like to share my posts on Facebook or Twitter, I would appreciate that. It helps get my blog out to more people, and I am sure you just want to spread the entertaining sayings I have. Lol! The comment section is at the end of the post, so keep scrolling. I look forward to reading all the comments, they make my day.
