Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

This morning I woke up blessed but stressed which is not the norm for me. Before driving into work I stopped at Middletown Car Care to check on the status of “Miranda”, Tayair’s old car. We took it in last week for a diagnosis to determine if is was worth having it serviced and then given to Malik or not serviced and left on the lot to be sold.  I don’t like being stressed or carrying a burden so I am going to relax, take a deep breath, exhale and then release it into the atmosphere.

Friday Eve and it’s not very Springy, it’s overcast and cloudy, a “jeans and t-shirt” type of day, but since I can’t wear that to work it’s a “two-tone dress” type of day.

Today’s outfit of the day features a skirt hubby gave me last year for Eid al-Fitr, which is the Islamic holiday celebrating the end of Ramadan. In addition to this Kimono Skirt he also ordered for me a few other skirts and tunics from EastEssence.com all of which I love. This white, cotton, wrap skirt is very flattering and the hand-stitched embellishment, piping around the pockets and buttons really enhances the look. This is a large which is my normal size and it falls loosely over the hips and is not binding, I would have worn my shirt tucked in as shown on the website but you can see my underwear so I decided against it – hubby agreed!

It seems like nail art is once again very popular – as the saying goes, “Everything Old Is New Again”.  

This is a picture of my nail art from my wedding day 22 years ago!   I requested my manicurist to add the pearls which he did by gluing and placing each one individually.   It was done a few days before the wedding and lasted well past our week long honeymoon in Cancun.

You’ll notice that hubby also had a manicure (pedicure and facial) which was my gift to him and his groomsmen.

“Ding Dong…Avon calling…” I am an Independent Sales Rep for Avon but I don’t ring customer’s bells however, this slogan always comes to mind when I wear pink. This morning I started with a red top because it pairs well with a black white combo, but later changed to the pink which works equally well.

In keeping with the Avon theme, my jewelry includes my Avon 125th Anniversary Charm bracelet, a CZ ring, black beaded necklace and Sunshine Nail polish. If you are interested in ordering Avon products, please go to my website http://www.youravon.com/ablake48 to place an order – the new way to “ding dong”! ((^_^))
