How was everyone’s weekend? I am betting that for most of us, it was the same ole, same ole. I was talking to my Energizer Bunny Friend, and we were just commenting on how different life is now. No one was out partying at a bar this weekend, no one was going out on a date to a restaurant, and no one was heading to the movies. When you stop and think about everything that we are NOT doing, it is somewhat crazy!!!
What I did do instead, is stay here at the house, and Emersyn came over to spend the night. She left everyone a message on my Saturday’s blog post, and if you didn’t see it, then be sure to check it out here. I had walked out to the office to schedule my post, and she said that she had always wanted to help me with the blog. So, I brought up the blog and told her that she could leave all of you a message. She made me go over to the chair so that I couldn’t see what she was writing, and then she stressed about what to say. She kept saying, “what if they don’t like what I say?” “what if I spell something wrong?” “what if they don’t like me?” I told her that I feel the same way every day when I write the blog. I said, “some people will love you, some will like you, and some will not care for you at all.” “That is the way that life is. Everyone doesn’t like the same thing, and that is okay.”
“So, Saturday night, when she was over, I showed her everyone’s comments and let her read them. She smiled from ear to ear and was so thrilled that you gurls took the time to say hello to her. Forget the bars; little things like this is what life is all about. Thanks to all of you who took the time to make one little girl’s day!!! ??? I know that there is talk about lifting restrictions soon. I am keeping my opinions to myself about whether that is a good thing or a bad thing. But, what are people going to do who had gotten so used to wearing sweatpants, yoga pants, or pajamas??? Lol! I am going to give you a suggestion that will help you meet in the middle. My outfit today is as casual as it can get, but adding a few extra items to your look will feel like you can go to the store without feeling weird. BTW, when you are wearing a mask, no one knows who you are anyway. Lol!
Who has a white t-shirt??? I am assuming that everyone raised their hand, but if you didn’t…get yourself this basic essential!!! You can take a white t-shirt (and you really should have several) and wear them with shorts, skirts, jeans, or leggings. A white t-shirt is a basic essential item that should be in everyone’s closet. I try to buy a new one yearly because I am a klutz and I get them dirty. I don’t want to wear a dingy t-shirt, and they are very inexpensive, so I buy a couple at the beginning of every year.
The t-shirt that I am wearing today is from Target. It is by the brand, A New Day, and I am impressed at how nice this tee is, especially for the price. You can’t see through the shirt, I don’t have on a camisole, and you still can’t see my bra. Yes, I am wearing one. Lol!!! I am wearing a large, and it is plenty roomy for me. Here is the link to the v-neck t-shirt.
I added a pair of Ponte knit leggings to my look because they are comfortable. But, I also added them because these are more like stretchy pants than yoga style leggings. Most of us have heard the saying, “leggings aren’t pants.” I get it, a lot of leggings are thin, see-through, and the last things you want to do is wear a short shirt that will allow your “who-ha” to shine through.
A thick pair of Ponte leggings aren’t going to allow anything to show; they are instead like a jegging. These are pants, and you can feel free to wear them without having to wear a tunic top. If you want to wear a tunic you can, you just don’t HAVE to. This pair of leggings is from Chico’s. I have a couple of different styles Ponte knit leggings from Chico’s (here), and they are excellent heavy-weight material. I am wearing a size 1 in these. They fit great, but they are also almost all sold out. So, here are a few others that I think will work just as well for you.
I needed to run to Walmart and take back some things, so I threw on this long black cardigan for warmth (it was in the 40s) and also to make sure that no one was looking at my hiney as I rode up the escalator. I didn’t want some poor unsuspecting soul to experience post-traumatic syndrome later in life, so I thought that adding the cardigan was the least that I could do.
The cardigan that I am wearing is an old one. I am not even sure where I got this, but a black cardigan is something that you can wear for years to come. Here are some that are on sale for a fraction of the cost.
I added this lightweight snow leopard scarf when I got ready to head out the door. A scarf is a beautiful accessory to spruce up any outfit. But, during these days, they serve double duty as a mask also. You can quickly put this over your face, not to keep out the virus, but to keep you from touching your face. I know that it is a lifesaver for me when it comes to those plastic produce bags. I can’t get those things apart to save my soul, and I find myself licking my fingers to try and separate them. A mask/scarf will keep you from doing something stupid like that. Lol!
I am still taking orders for the bulk order that I will be placing at the end of the month. You don’t have to be my customer, and there is no obligation with this order. You can order any product that you would like (just let me know what you want to try), but I am offering a couple of items at a discounted price.
I am using my Active Hydration Serum on my face, which helps immensely, and I am using the Active Hydration Body Replenish on my hands, which has been a lifesaver! If you are interested in either of these products, then I’ll let you have them at my Preferred Customer price. AHS retails for 112.00, but you can buy it for 85.00, and that includes shipping. The AHBR retails for 66.00, but you can buy that for 55.00 that includes shipping. If you want to purchase both of them, or if you want to buy either of these for a frontline worker, message me, and I’ll give you an additional discount. Here is my email, firstname.lastname@example.org
