Congratulations everyone! We made it to Saturday, and we survived April! I don’t know what it is about April, but it seems to be the month that if it can go wrong, it will go wrong. Several years ago, when I have first joined Rodan + Fields, they decided to do an update to their website. We were launching into a Australia, and that meant that the website needed to be able to do more than one currency, etc.
So, they told us that the websites would be down for up to three days since there were lots of technical things that needed to be put in place and worked out. But, the three days turned into almost the entire month of April. It was a disaster, and in the end, the new website plans were scraped, and the old website was forced back into action. If you mention Aprilgeddon to someone who has been in R+F for a while, they know exactly what you are talking about. Now, we all have our own Aprilgeddon, or maybe we have our own 2020geddon. When 2020 first rolled around as the year of VISION, I had high hopes and expectations. Whew! Now I just want to survive 2020!
You might have noticed that I have been in a neutral state of mind. I have been wearing lots of solids, lots of black, lots of white, and lots of beige. I think it is a way of showing you how to extend your wardrobe by using basics and colors that will go with anything. These pants don’t fit into that category, but I have a plan on how to show you three different looks for wearing these to get the most wears from any printed pant or legging.
I shopped my closet this morning for a neutral top. This sweater is one that I’ve loved and worn a lot, and it is from Loft. I saw a similar linen tee when I was shopping on Loft the other day, and I fooled around and didn’t buy it. I am kicking myself this morning since my size is sold out, but maybe some of you can grab it, so I’ll link it for you. (HERE)
The leopard print pants are not your normal pair of pants. These are certainly eye-catching, and they are pretty versatile. I challenged myself to wear these in an everyday look like I have today, and in a few days, you’ll see these in a dressy and a casual look also. They have a drawstring waist and are a linen/cotton blend. I love anything with linen, especially in the summer months. They run true to size, and I am wearing my usual size 10. Here is the link to the pants.
Let’s talk about these shoes! Holy smoke, these things are cute! I honestly wasn’t wowed by them on the website, but when I got them in, I was thrilled. I love the neutral colors and how they are two-toned. The thick top strap is a blush color, and the strap across the toes is white. They are a platform wedge espadrille, and they just scream summer!!! Also, they scream, “UNDER 25.00!!! Lol! I am wearing my usual size 9, and they sit perfectly. Here is the link to the shoes, and they also come in other colors.
My gold jewelry looked perfect with this outfit. I just bought the Elle drop earrings in Ivory Mother of Pearl and the Elisa Gold Triple Strand necklace. I love both of these purchases, and I have found that I really like layering the Elisa necklace with the Rue Long gold necklace.
At Christmas time, I saw that Amazon had a sale on the Dyson hairdryer. It was a great sale, and it was 100.00 off of the normal retail price. I put it in my Amazon cart, but I couldn’t make myself buy it. A couple of days later, Joe saw the hairdryer in the cart and said, “Tania, you are not thinking about paying 300.00 for a hairdryer, are you???” I tried explaining to him that the price was 100.00 less than usual, but he was not buying it. “If you buy a 300.00 hairdryer, you are crazy!” Guess what came in the mail today? Lol! Before you start worrying about my sanity, or my health when Joe sees this hairdryer in my bathroom, I will set your mind at ease. I am not crazy, and I did not pay 400.00 or even the 300.00 sale price for this. Instead, this was FREE!!! Yep! You heard me! This was an incentive gift from Rodan + Fields! It is funny that I’ve earned a MacBook Air Laptop, an iPhone, several Tiffany bracelets, an Apple Watch, and trips to New Orleans, Los Cabo, and Cancun, and I probably did a happy dance more when I saw this package in the mail. Now you might have to wonder about my sanity.
I joined for the skincare, the discount, and the confidence that comes from having great skin. I have been amazed at the friends that I have made in this business and how much I’ve been able to accomplish in such a short time. There are plenty of people who’ve achieved way more, and plenty who’ve done way less. Since I only joined to get my skincare at the best possible price, to say that I am blown away by this business. This month you can join me at a discounted price. R+F is giving CashBack when you join with a business kit, and I am matching that offer. So you get DOUBLE the CASHBACK!!! (Here) is the link to see all four ways that you can join this business. I already have a call set up early next week, and I would love to chat with you also. Get your questions ready, and I’ll give you the answers!
