Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Archive for February 2013

I was gifted a product sample of bareMinerals READY Eyeshadow 2.0, for being a “Beauty Ambassador” for *Ladies Home Journal.  Now for the life of me I don’t remember signing up to become an “Ambassador“, but glad that I did because you know I like to get things FREE!

Ladies Home Journal Magazine

I am not a beauty expert nor have I ever claimed to be, but I’ve been known to try new products and then share my opinion, usually an Avon product because that’s what I sell.  So when I get free samples in the mail or from magazines I like to try them as an alternative to my Avon products.  The bareMinerals Eyeshadow READY 2.0, is a duo palette, “PAGE SIX” is a light pink shade and “MOST REQUESTED” is a darker burgundy both contain iridescent sparkles.  I swatched each color onto my arm and found them to be smooth in application as well as a complimentary color for my complexion.

I primed my eye lids before applying and chose my version of the Smokey Eye look.  Used an elf Angled Couture Eyeshadow brush for “PAGE SIX” and the Blending Eye Brush for “MOST REQUESTED”

The bareMinerals Eyeshadow went on smoothly with no dusting or falling flakes

Product wore well throughout the day and looked just as fresh at 3:00 p.m. as it did when first applied at 7:00 am

 Hello Friends and Happy March Eve!

Can you believe today is the last day of February?  I am taking a PTO day off from work and will be attending an event later at The Money School of Delaware.  Yesterday started out wet and rainy so I just wore black slacks, a zebra print top and flats then added an orange belt to break up the black and white.  It wasn’t fashionable just comfy Corporate casual – what do you think?

OOTD 2 27 13 001

The orange purse was purchased from Charmingly Linda’s Consignment Shop and I tied a multi-color scarf around the handles.

OOTD 2 27 13 002

I was going to wear the single bracelet that I made in my DYI post (here), but decided to add a few wooden bangles to the zebra print ones that I had in my jewelry box

OOTD 2 27 13 007

I used orange nail polish to cover a silver ring – another DYI

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday.

Yeah yeah yeah, we are on the down stroke to the weekend!  I really have to stop rushing my life away, every day is a new day to be cherished and savored, but ding dang dong it – I LOVE THE WEEKENDS!!!

I also love OLIVES, I love the color OLIVE and I love the vegetable… or is it a fruit…OLIVES …hey…in what food group is an OLIVE?

I do know that olives are a staple in the Mediterranean diet which has been scientifically confirmed that it reduces the risk of stroke and other cardiovascular diseases by 30 percent and is great for people trying to lose weight.  I only cook with light Virgin Olive Oil, have used it as a hair care product and if I drank Martinis I would do it only for the OLIVES!

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday.

I hope you had a nice weekend and that your Monday was productive and stress free.

My weekend was nice starting with attending the C.O.D.E. Conference on Saturday, which was an awesome event for small business owners.  Does your city or state provide free conferences or seminars for the advancement of their small business owners?

Sunday I didn’t attend church instead lounged around getting some much needed R&R and then afternoon shopping with my son which was a rare treat for me, he’s at the age when being with mom is not cool.  I remember praying for a boy each time I was pregnant, but sometimes I wish I had a girl to shop with especially now that my grandmother is no longer with me.  She and I loved to hang out…shopping for bargains…eating out …laughing…just having fun…I really miss her, which is why I started blogging.

This morning I heard birds chirping and the weather has been so mild.  With little to no significant snow I’m hoping Mother Nature isn’t trying to lull us into a false sense of “it’s Spring”!  Remember the catch phrase, “it’s not nice to fool Mother Nature”, well I hope she reciprocates.

Today I am wearing the Posh.mina that I reviewed (here) last month and because it’s one of my favorite colors it will definitely become a closet staple in high rotation.
