Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

The weather is warming up nicely despite yesterday’s hail storm, yes, it hailed in Middletown, Delaware. I hadn’t reached town yet therefore, I missed it but my girlfriend posted a pic on Facebook (LIKE me) and it was awesome, actual golf ball size hail in May – this global warming ain’t no joke!

I am getting a little impatient with the weather and am no longer waiting to go sleeveless or wear sandals as evidenced by today’s outfit. I added a little pop of color to the black and white with a coral watch and ring. The brass statement necklace with matching earrings I’ve had for over 25 years and paired them with a hammered brass bangle bracelet.

A few weeks ago it was reported and obviously rebuked by nail technicians that Gel Manicures pose a health risk, that the process of using UV Rays to set the gel can cause skin cancer.  But what about Shellac Manicures, do they pose the same risks because the setting method is the same?  There are many pros and cons for each including this one, (here), but you have to judge for yourself.

I’ve had both and personally prefer The Shellac for several reasons, the process is quicker; the length under the UV light is shorter and last but not least, it’s cheaper!

Yesterday during my lunch break I went to Nail Paradise in the Frazer Shopping Center, where I received a Shellac manicure by Lisa, a very pleasant nail technician.  There were so many pretty bright colors from which to chose but I selected this Midnight Blue, what do you think?

Have you had a Shellac or Gel Manicure – if so, which do you prefer?

Lisa, the Nail Technician, was very pleasant and I enjoyed my “quick pamper”.

 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?

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

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

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

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

When I saw this top at Goodwill I knew I had to get it because of all the colors, it would work with almost anything in my closet. There was just one slight problem…it’s very low cut in the front and I knew hubby would not let me out of the house in it.

It just hung in my closet…that was until yesterday after reading a post by a fellow blogger, Jean of all Trades…I am now wearing it backwards!!!

I am glad that I kept the shirt but more importantly, I am thankful for bloggers who come up with great ways to re-fashion clothing and jewelry!  This necklace was a $1.00 find at the Flea Market and I used nail polish to give the stones some color.

Dollar Tree is now accepting manufacturer’s coupons which makes a lot of items FREE! I had a $1.00 off coupon for the Pepperidge Farms Jingos and they are awesome. I also have coupons for Campbell soup but around the holidays it’s cheaper at the grocery stores.

Hello friends and Happy Tuesday.  Today’s outfit is a dress that was previously worn in August, also on a Tuesday (here).  Transitioning it from summer to autumn by adding a faux leather jacket and peep toe shoes replaced with leather pumps.  The jacket was thrifted from Goodwill and the pumps are Carlos Santana, which I didn’t realize when I found them at The Salvation Army.  These pumps are classic, timeless and very comfortable.

If you follow me on Instagram (ablake48) you know that I’m participating in #pinkfor31days, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  We are wearing pink nail polish for the month of October and I started with Revlon’s Fuchsia Fever.  I’ve lost 2 cousins and an aunt to this deadly disease and have 5 cousins who are breast cancer survivors.  A co-worker is now fighting her second bout after being in remission for over 10 years!  If  you are over 40 and haven’t scheduled your annual mammogram yet, please do so today, I’m scheduled for next week.

 

Have a fantabulous day and don’t forget to schedule your mammogram appointment – Smooches!
