THIS IS MY NEW UNIFORM LATELY

Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is a relaxing rose colored v-neck tunic tee, navy Ponte knit leggings, and black flip flops by Tory Burch. How is everyone doing? I took most of the day off and just enjoyed the day. Lucy and I went out on the porch for a little bit, and I enjoyed sitting in the sun and just relaxing. Joe had gone golfing, so it was only Lucy and me all by our lonesome today. I cleaned up and put on my makeup, but then decided to wear my “uniform,” more about that later.
Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is a relaxing rose colored v-neck tunic tee, navy Ponte knit leggings, and flip flops by Tory Burch. I was wondering…do you still put on your makeup every day, or at least most days? I did a quick video the other day of a new mascara that I was trying, and I uploaded it to my Instagram stories. Putting on my makeup makes me feel better, and I know that Joe thinks I look better. Lol!!! Anyway, people were commenting on and loving the video. But, one person felt that I shouldn’t be doing videos about mascara during a pandemic. It is funny how some people want to have some levity and entertainment in there lives to take their minds off of world events, and others only want headline news on 24/7. I guess that it is safe to say that she isn’t reading my blog today. Hahaha! BTW, I put up a video on a beginner smokey eye if you want to check that out.
Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is a relaxing rose colored tunic tee This week has been all about the t-shirt. A t-shirt can be white, black, or colored. It can also be long-sleeved, short-sleeved, sleeveless, v-neck, scoop-neck, or crew-neck. And, then we get into different lengths, such as regular, crop, and tunic. This is the first tunic tee that I’ve bought, but I don’t think that it will be the last. I love this t-shirt, and I wish that it came in 40 different colors.

This color is called Dazzling Rose, but I think that it looks like rust in person. I like the color; I just don’t consider it a rose color. The top is lightweight, but it is perfect for the upcoming summer months.  I love the deep v-neckline and the high split on each side. I am wearing a size medium in this top, and it is plenty roomy. The shirt is already on sale, but if you use the code CYBER, you’ll get an extra 50% off your entire purchase! Here is the link.
Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is a relaxing rose colored v-neck tunic tee, navy Ponte leggings, and black flip flops by Tory Burch. One of the reasons that I love the top so much is because it covers your rear when you wear leggings. I have been living in this pair of Ponte leggings. They are high-waisted, and they are the perfect length and weight. The reason that I like this pair is that they don’t seem to make me sweat. I had read somewhere that leggings made from cotton are the most comfortable, but these are made from 68% Rayon, 27% Nylon, 5% Spandex. I am on the lookout for some made with cotton, and if I find some, you know that I’ll be sure to share with all of you. The size that I am wearing is a large, and that is usually what I will order when it comes to leggings. Here is the link, but since sizes are so limited, I link a few others that are almost identical.





Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is a relaxing rose colored v-neck tunic tee, Ponte knit leggings, and black flip flops by Tory Burch. I called my mother yesterday, and for some reason, she asked me about flip flops. She said that she wanted a pair that didn’t hurt her feet. I told her that my favorite pair of flip flops were these from Tory Burch. It has NOTHING to do with the brand, and everything to do with how they feel. I like cheap flip flops that are rubber so that I can wear them around the pool, the ocean, or when I am playing in the dirt. But, after I bought this pair, I got rid of all of the rest of them. They are stiff for the most part, but these are so comfortable. The fact that they are stylish is just a plus in my book. I don’t think that Mom bought them since she wanted to wear them to the chicken house, but I highly recommend them anyway. Lol! The chickens want to see you looking your best. Hahaha, Here is the link to these shoes.

I am someone who stays motivated when I have a goal to try and accomplish. I have a goal that I set last month in my R+F business, and I have to hit that goal for 4 months in a roll. Last month I hit my goal, but this month I am behind where I need to be. SO, that means that you are going to benefit from my goal setting. I am having a sale of a few of my favorite products, and you can buy them even if you are not my customer. Here is the low-down:

Lash Boost

– Need I say more!!! This little tube of goodness will last you 3-4 months, and it can help you get longer looking, fuller looking lashes. No more extensions, no more glue or magnets. Just one swipe every night before you go to bed. Price as my Preferred Customer is 139.00, but, you will receive a refund of 14.00 PLUS a tube of Body Moisturizer. The Price for someone who is not my customer is 125.00 plus 5.00 shipping, and you will also receive a tube of Body Moisturizer.

Active Hydration Serum – I use this 2x a day. I am obsessed!!! It raises the skin’s hydration level by 200% after just one use and maintains continuous hydration for eight hours. Older skin needs hydration to keep from looking crepey. Price as my Preferred Customer is 100.00, but, you will receive a refund of 10.00 PLUS a tube of Body Moisturizer. The Price for someone who is not my customer is 90.00 plus 5.00 shipping, and you will also receive a tube of Body Moisturizer.

Active Hydration Body Replenish and Redefine Multi-Function Eye Cream – The Active Hydration Serum is for your face, and this Body Replenish is for your body. Look at your skin, does it look in need of a drink of water? Since I have always had skin as dry as the Sahara Desert, this product was the one that I let out a squeal when I heard it was coming. I LOVE this big old jar of goodness. And, the eye cream from R+F is unbelievable. When I started using this eye cream, I had to pull the skin tight on my eyelids before I applied eyeshadow. Now, my eyelids have lifted (no more droopy eye), and I no longer have to pull and tug on my eyelids. Plus, as a bonus, almost all of those pesky crows feet have disappeared. The Price for both of these products as my Preferred Customer is 116.00, but, you will receive a refund of 11.00 PLUS a tube of Body Moisturizer. The Price for both of these products as someone who is not my customer is 105.00 plus 5.00 shipping, and you will also receive a tube of Body Moisturizer.

    My life during the pandemic has not been a whole lot different than before because I have been retired for 3 yrs. We just haven’t been able to go to church, and the only shopping I have done is for groceries. I wear tinted moisturizer w/sunscreen, blush, concealer (darkness around my eyes), a hint of eyeliner, mascara, and lipgloss every day. I only wear foundation and eyeshadow if I go out of the house. If I have yard work to do, I won’t put the makeup on until after I come in and clean up.

      You can not please everyone and that’s okay. I have been on medical leave before coronavirus started. So really no different. I have lost my job though. The only time I have wore makeup is to go to my doctor appointments and check up on my parents and help them in any way that I can. I love all the tees you have showed us. I have saved every one of them to my pinterest. Thanks again to taking the time to blog for us.

    Yes, I’ve worn make-up daily, with the exception of 2 days, since we began “sheltering at home” on 3/16. I feel better. Mind you, many of those days I’ve been painting rooms, washing windows and doing other projects and my outfit has reflected my project – but I had make-up on. On days I’m not working on projects, I will dress in cute jeans and a nice top plus jewelry. Why not? I seem to own a lot of stuff so I’m wearing it. I feel normal doing so and I believe that keeps my outlook positive. Cute tunic tee, I like the side slits.

        Very cute outfit today!! I haven’t been makeup free since my Mom let me start wearing it in high school. I’m a very pale redhead with transparent eyebrows and eyelashes so unless I fill in my brows and wear mascara, all you see is my brown eyes! To me, its just part of my routine, no different then brushing my teeth😁

    I have been doing hair and makeup everyday since lockdown started 5 weeks ago here in Germany. I did try to give up eyeliner but was not blessed with big eyes or long lashes and my lash extensions are looking pitiful so it didn’t last long. I have been dressing cuter around the house, partially because my husband is working from home but mostly because the “online shopping for entertainment” portion of quarantine has begun.

    My hope is that anyone with the attitude you described here would remember that even though we are living a bit different these days that WE ARE STILL LIVING. We should not put our lives on hold ever. We should get up every day and life to the fullest. Let’s not wait until this pandemic is over…..’cause that could be quite awhile from right now! God bless you, Tania. Oh, and I do get dressed each day, but I haven’t worn make-up in about two months now, and I am fine with that!

    I haven’t worn make-up in years. I am simply too lazy to take the time and when I see all of the products and tools people recommend using and buying, I figure I will just save the money. Love the leggings and tunic tee…wish it was elbow length sleeves. I have a hideous scar on my arm that I always hide so I need my sleeves to be elbow length or longer (unfortunately). I have found the most comfortable flip flops to be Sanuk. They are made from yoga mats and are so easy on the feet. I wear them constantly during the summer. Have a great day!

    I wear makeup daily. I’m working from home but kept my routine simply because it makes things feel a little more normal. I’ve been wearing jeans to keep my snacking habits in check, Ha! I love the long t-shirt and leggings. It looks comfortable but very put together. With dressy sandals and jewelry, it would become a really dressy outfit as well. Very cute. Tania, pay no attention to the nay sayers. I saw your mascara video and I thought it was great. We need some diversion right now. Thank you for what you do…it helps me keep my sanity.

    I’m with you on makeup. It’s been a habit of mine since the late 70s when I read a book title Sidetracked Home Executives. The writers said, and I’m paraphrasing loosely here, that if you wear makeup out you should wear it at home. In the beginning of this new habit I would sometimes catch a glimpse of myself in a mirror or reflected in a toaster (lol remember chrome toasters that catapulted the toast into the air?). I’d be pleasantly surprised. Far better than looking like the homeless woman on the median strip down the street at the freeway on-ramp. Plus nowadays most good quality foundations contain some measure of SPF. Later in life I sold a Mary Kay for a time and part of selling technique taught us was dress for work before making calls. Lots of cold calling back then before Al Gore invented the internet lol.

    Nowadays my abreviated routine may skip eyeliner and lipliner, just using mascara and gloss but foundation is essential to protect my skin from not only outdoor sun exposure but blue light exposure from LED and fluorescent lighting inside. Anyone who thinks looking nice is not good just cuz there’s a pandemic must have rocks in their head. I mean I try to be open minded about stuff but not so open minded my brains spill out on the ground!

    I was a hippie chick in the 60s and early 70s during the era of no bras or makeup. I look at pix of me back then and I notice how lovely my 20 year old skin was. Maybe if I could achieve that with just juvederm and Botox I would but I can’t. Need to cover the ravages of time best I can!

      My “normal” is no makeup & comfy clothes since I’m retired. I do like to dress up & wear makeup when I go out. I’ve only left the house 3 times, other than a daily walk in the neighborhood for the past 6 weeks. I went to Home Depot a couple of days ago to get some flowers, herbs & tomato plants. Although I put on a baseball cap I did use a little blush & eyeliner….and I wore a cute shirt with jeans and put on earrings & bracelets 😊
      My days have been filled with working in my yard, so I dress for that.
      And just because we are in the middle of some very strange times doesn’t mean we aren’t entitled to some fun & diversion. Post all you want about cute clothes & makeup. I’ll continue to look forward to reading every day!

Thankfully I had a haircut just before my state closed down (and we are still closed at least until 5/1) and made an online appointment for May 7, as long as we are open for hairdressers. Thankfully my hair is white so don’t have to worry about roots showing. Tell mom, if she has plantar fasciitis, extremely flat thongs will huuurrrttt!

    I’m retired & wear less makeup now. (I didn’t wear a lot before!) I’ve ALWAYS worn mascara but in the past few years my eyes have gotten very sensitive. So even though I’m careful what I wear, I only wear mascara when I go out with friends or to church. But I usually wear jewelry every day. At least earrings (or the holes will close!) & sometimes a necklace & bracelet. My “uniform” is comfy pants…not pjs…& a cute top. So I feel presentable when I take the dog for a walk.
    Hope you are all safe & happy.
