50 IS NOT OLD | A VALENTINE'S DAY GIFT FROM FASHION FLASHYou gurls are in for a treat today!!! If you have been following me very long then you know I am one of the bloggers in a group called the Fashion Flash. We wanted to spoil our faithful readers with some Valentine goodies so there are going to be 6 giveaways. Each blogger has a special gift that she is giving away. I will also give you the links to the ladies who have already started their giveaways at the end of this post. These are some fabulous gifts that you can give to your special someone or keep for yourself. I am not sure how your husband would like some of our gifts, but I bet you will. Lol!50 IS NOT OLD | A VALENTINE'S DAY GIFT FROM FASHION FLASHBut before we start the giveaway you are going to have to be subjected to me first. Lol! I am sitting here writing this post and it is coming a monsoon outside. This has been the craziest weather EVER! It was 65 today and it is supposed to start snowing around midnight tonight. I don’t think we are going to get any accumulation of snow and it is supposed to be 69 on Sunday. I was messaging a follower tonight and she said she is possibly going to get a FOOT of snow! Holy cow! This is one thing that I really love about this blog, the fact that I now have women who I consider my friends all over the world!!!50 IS NOT OLD | A VALENTINE'S DAY GIFT FROM FASHION FLASHI told you I was in a purple mood. I just keep gravitating toward purple this year and it has never been one of my choices in the past. This top is a new one that I bought at a little boutique in town called Trendy Threads.  They have a pretty good selection online so be sure to check them out. I love shopping with a small shop, you get such great customer service. This top is a light suedette and in the lightest fawn color. The purple design is so vibrant against that background. I wish I had started my sunless tanner before I wore this top. All the cold shoulder openings just show my whiter than white skin. Yuck!50 IS NOT OLD | A VALENTINE'S DAY GIFT FROM FASHION FLASHI am wearing my BELIEVE necklace worn short. I didn’t want anything long hanging down in the print of the dress. My earrings are some that I got in my signup kit from Plunder called Addison. It says these are mustard colored but mine don’t seem to be that color, they seem more toward the brown side.50 IS NOT OLD | A VALENTINE'S DAY GIFT FROM FASHION FLASHI have on Broedrick bangle and the Cecelia bracelet. The pale pink is gorgeous in these bracelets, it has an opalescent look. For my other arm, I am wearing a host of bangles. I choose the ones that have brown and purple charms. Don’t forget that I am offering 15% off Plunder on orders over 50.00, I will send you a check for the discount.  Go to to shop from Plunder.50 IS NOT OLD | A VALENTINE'S DAY GIFT FROM FASHION FLASHI love my Michael Kors satchel. I bought this years ago and it is still one of my favorite purses. I carry this any season so that makes it really worth the extra money I paid for it. It is a canvas material with leather accents. I bought mine at TJ Maxx.

.50 IS NOT OLD | A VALENTINE'S DAY GIFT FROM FASHION FLASHThese purple leggings are from LuLaRoe. If you have never tried a pair of LuLaRoe leggings then you really should contact your local dealer and try at least one pair. They are super comfortable and they wash up great. I am sure there are several dealers that read my blog so feel free to post your information in case the ladies don’t know anyone that sells it.50 IS NOT OLD | A VALENTINE'S DAY GIFT FROM FASHION FLASHFinally, it is time for the giveaway.

  76. Jana Williams Reply

    Thanks So Much for This Amazing Bvlgari Fragrance Giveaway, I Really Do Appreciate it So Much! My Favorite Thing in the Whole World to Shop for is Anything Scented Like a Candle, Incense, Perfume, etc but I Have Not Been Shopping for Anything in a Long Time! I Was in a Bad Motorcycle Accident and I’m Currently Not Able to Work So I’m Definitely On a Major Budget So it Would Really Be a Dream to Win & I Would Be Ever So Grateful! That’s the Thing About Being Unemployed and Having to Rely on Your Family & Friends Help, You Become So Much More Grateful & Appreciative of Things and People! Unfortunately I’m Single This Valentines Day So it Gets Kind of Lonely but My Sweet Mother Still Buys Me a Valentines Day Gift Each Year So I Don’t Feel So Sad! Well Thanks Again for This Amazing Giveaway, I’m So Excited and I Truly Appreciate it! Have a Blessed Day and a Happy Valentines Day! – Jana
