50 IS NOT OLD | WEARING MY HEART ON MY CHEST | FASHION OVER 40I am not wearing my heart on my sleeve; it is on my chest. Lol! This photo makes me want to go back to the beach. It was so quiet and relaxing while we were there. I went with Joe yesterday to Bristol Tennessee. He had a meeting to attend, and he wanted to prepare before he went in, so I drove and let him study. Bristol is about two hours from our house, and it was snowing so I drove slow. Thankfully, the snow wasn’t sticking to the road, and it made the drive beautiful.50 IS NOT OLD | WEARING MY HEART ON MY CHEST | FASHION OVER 40

When we got to the Interstate, I asked Joe what time his appointment was because I thought he might need something to eat before he went. He took out his phone to check the time, and he said the appointment is at 1:00 pm on the 31st. I laughed and said, quit teasing me, I am not falling for that. He looked at me and said that he wasn’t kidding, it was 1:00 pm on the 31st. Then he asked me what the date was. Lol! You should have seen his face when I said, “It is the 29th!” #seniormoment We both got a good chuckle from his mistake until we realized that we have to go back again on Thursday. At least we got to go and have a good lunch at Outback before we went back home. 50 IS NOT OLD | WEARING MY HEART ON MY CHEST | FASHION OVER 40

Valentine’s Day T-Shirt

Valentine’s Day will be here before you know it, so I wanted to remind you to start looking for a cute outfit to wear. I know that some of you might not like wearing red, and this is a good example of how you can still look festive and still wear a color that is not so loud. I bought this sequined heart sweater last year from an online boutique named the retail therapist. The only thing that I have against this sweater is the sequins can scratch your arm or someone else. Emersyn came over and hugged me when I had the sweater on, and she complained that it scratched her little face. Ahhh.


This was my second pair of boots that I took with me to the beach. I didn’t venture onto the sand with these.  Getting the leather of the boots wet sounded like a bad idea, and who knows what the saltwater would do to leather! I have on a pair of bootcut Vigoss jeans instead of my normal skinny jeans.

The bootcut style can help to balance your look if you carry more weight through your hips. Fashion is all illusion; we need to figure out which style gives us the illusion that we are desiring.


Rodan and Fields

One of the questions that I get most often is about becoming a Rodan and Fields Preferred Customer (PC). The reason that you want to become one is for the savings. Why would you pay more for a product if you don’t have to? Plus, as a preferred customer, you receive free shipping which can be anywhere from 9.95 to 11.95 or more.

So, what is the downside? There isn’t one, but here is the sticking point for some people. Once you become enrolled (a one-time enrollment fee of 19.95) you are placed on an auto-replenish schedule. Most of Rodan + Fields products are packaged to last you 60 days, so every 60 days you are “scheduled” for an auto-replenish of your last shipment.  Every month, I send out an email to every PC that has a PC replenish shipment scheduled. I will tell them the date of the shipment, and then I will tell them about any specials that R+F or that I might be having. I give instructions on how to change the shipment in case they want to try new products or delay the shipment.

There is no reason ever to order anything that you don’t want or need. However, if something slips through the cracks and your order processes, you can always return it for a money-back guarantee since the products all have a 60-day money-back guarantee. Now that I have addressed all those issues let me tell you how to become a PC. Go here to go shopping and then go to checkout. From there you will see a small box that you click to Join PC Perks.

  1. I love to wear my heart jewellery at Valentines and have dressed in red mostly. I adore this top – it is super cute! Have a wonderful weekend xx Maria

  2. Kelly Palmer says:

    I really like this outfit on you. The boot cut jeans are very flattering for your figure. I prefer boot cut jeans for myself. Because I am a redhead I don’t care to wear red clothing so this type of top would be perfect for me 🙂

  3. Susan Vilardo says:

    You look fabulous and so slender! (You always look great). Glad the snow didn’t stick while you were driving! Here we have at least 7 inches of that beautiful stuff on the ground and it’s 16 below zero. The Sun is shining tho, so I’ll think positive!

  4. You look adorable! I love the heart top and your jeans. The white stitching really makes them pop. Love the story, I’m not sure I have done that but who knows??

  5. Omgosh! That made me laugh!
    My husband is in charge of cooking for the Men’s Supper the first Tues. in February. It was announced Sunday, so we assumed it was this Tues. We had almost everything ready and suddenly we realized it was next week!!! So, it’s to do all over again!?

  6. Dana Buckingham says:

    I can imagine the sinking feeling you both had when you realized you had the wrong day! At least it was a couple of days early and not late! And you got to enjoy lunch. I love the top!

  7. Michelle Williams says:

    That outfit is so cute. Had I know you were just driving around (LOL) I would have had my mom meet you. She lives in Bristol and I send her pictures all the time of how I follow your outfits. Have fun Thursday!

  8. Cute story and cute outfit! Love the sparkly heart! You better keep those boots hidden LOL! By the way, I was born in Bristol Tennessee. The hospital was on the TN/VA border and the maternity ward was on the TN side.

    1. Michelle Williams says:

      I was born in the old hospital too! It’s changed a lot.

  9. The boot cut jeans look very nice on you and the heart top is too cute. Poor Joe! But at least you all had a laugh and made best of it. Thanks for the chuckle this morning.

  10. I love that I am not the only one planning my Valentines outfit! and I also have neutral colored and subtle heart stuff that can go anytime. you look great!

  11. Charlcy L. Green says:

    That story is hysterical! Hope Joe didnt get mad! But you made the most of it by eating at Outback! I love that top and have one very similar!

  12. Elizabeth Bienvenu says:

    Great story,,,like your jeans

  13. You nailed this outfit! The combination makes you look tall and thinner!

    1. Thanks, Justine! I love taller and thinner, those are great combinations!

  14. Cheryl peffer says:

    I too showed up to a retirement party a day early a few years ago. We had a good laugh, I traveled back the hour drive the next day and laughed again. The beach looks inviting especially today. The wind chill factor here is -20. Brrrr!

    1. My gracious, Cheryl! That wind chill would get the best of me. Stay inside where it is warm!!!

  15. Love the outfit!!!!

  16. ?Love it!! Those jeans are very slimming. I love bootcut and that top is so cute! Looking fab as usual Miss Tania!! ?

    1. Wow! Thanks, Carol! I will have to wear these jeans more often.

  17. Love the casual outfit. I don’t find myself buying “themed” shirts because I feel like then I can only wear them around that holiday so I might as well spend the money on something I can wear for a longer period of time. Is my thinking incorrect here? The top you have on I could see where it would work for other then Valentines day, but if I bought a top with red hearts all over it, then I feel I would have to leave it in the closet after Valentines Day.

    1. I am not a fan of themed items either. I loved the heart top because it didn’t scream Valentine’s, and I have worn this many times in the last year.

  18. I showed up to a party a day early a few years ago. We had a such a good laugh!

    1. Lol! I think that we all do stunts like this.

  19. Love the top. I am not really a big valentines person, nevertheless will make the effort and wear red on the day lol. We have lots of snow here today so definitely not beach weather..

    1. Lisa, we are not huge on Valentine’s Day activities. I think we will be back at the beach on Valentine’s Day, so at least we will probably go out to dinner.

  20. Glad we aren’t the only couples who mix up dates! At least you didn’t miss the appointment! I will have to make an effort for Valentines Day. I usually just drag out whatever I have in red.

    1. Janet, I think we “ALL” pull stunts like this. That is why I love telling the silly things that we do; it makes others realize that they are not alone.

    1. I love the bling also! That is what attracted me to this top.

  21. I loved your story! That is hilarious! Might have pulledd that stunt myself once! Lol! Also love your boots and jeans.

    1. It was hilarious until we realized that we have to do it all over again tomorrow. Lol!
