Hello Friends and Happy Valentines Day 2013!
I’m sending you a virtual rose, a loving heart and a chocolate kiss!

I don’t spend a lot of money for Valentine’s Day, and every year my men know to only expect a small box of chocolates and a card at their table setting.  They reciprocate but include a dozen red roses, and when the boys were younger the card would be homemade and I have even kept a few – somewhere.

Everyday I kiss and tell my hubby and sons that I love them and today will be no different, but I do like the significance of this holiday and enjoy wearing red (and eating candy).  However, this morning I had a difficult time deciding on my outfit, first changing my skirt and then the shoes and scarves.

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday

It’s mid-week, the temps are rising and the sun will be shining – all is good in the neighborhood! Dark and dreary days really take a toll on the mind and body, which is not good when trying to lose weight. I need to step up my Zumba workouts and cut back on the carbs so that my clothes fit better…this skirt is tight!

Does the weather or seasons affect your weight?

Both the skirt and top were thrifted from GW Boutique (Goodwill).  The top was made in Hong Kong and has a very unique design with the metal rectangles sewn onto the front.

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Can you believe it’s the last Thursday of the month, tomorrow is the first day of February. February 1st is also my “baby boy’s” Birthday and he will be 17 – somebody is getting old and it isn’t me!!!!
February, 1996, two days after he was born we were hit with a major snow storm that kept us house bound for almost a month. I hope that doesn’t happen again, the storm of 2010 was more than enough to last a lifetime – remember that one?

No snow storms in the forecast, just bright sunshine and high winds, but not like what tore through some southern states last night – we are truly blessed!

These blue suede booties are different than the one’s featured here.  They were purchased last year from The Shoe Dept, and also came in red which I didn’t get – wish I had because it would have saved me from going to the mall today.  By the way, have you been to JC Penney’s lately?  If not, GO, they have $1 ~ $3 ~ $5 and $10 clearance racks, I got a red skirt and a pair of capris for $5 each!  Their new “one price no sales” marketing campaign didn’t work out so well, and now they are restructuring, so head over for some great bargains.  The “housewives of Exton” were racking up on kids clothes on clearance for a dollar which are better deals than Goodwill!

Hello Friends and Happy Monday!

I took my car through the car wash yesterday only to wake up to fresh snow this morning.  It never seems to fail, the day after you wash your car it rains or in this case snows.  Oh well it could be worse, I took my time driving this morning and made it safely to work.

Today’s snow day outfit is another one of the brushed SUEDE pantsuits from the back of the closet, paired with a leopard print SCARF and brown SUEDE boots for an easy breezy triple “S” day.

Last week while blog hopping I entered a giveaway contest to win a scarf from The Posh’mina.  One of the Rafflecopter’s entry requirements was to leave a comment on the company’s Facebook page.  After viewing the online shop I chose the Hi’biscus style and commented that I would love to feature it on my blog. Within a matter of hours I received a reply from them with an offer to send one – wow the power of Facebook.  (now I need to find a giveaway that offers to pay my bills-lol)

Anywho, a lovely lady by the name of Debbie, also touted as being “Fashionably Fifty” from The Posh’mina contacted me,  stated that she liked my blog and would love to send a scarf for me to post. I agreed and said that I would wear it to church taking pictures from there, however, upon receipt I was like a kid at Christmas and couldn’t wait to wear it!

The company’s promo states that they had evolved big scarves to become more fashionable and versatile than ever.  I definitely have to agree because of it’s design; the slotted arm holes is by far the best feature.  How many times has your pashmina scarf fallen off your arms and onto a dirty floor in a public place?  The innovative design of the slotted arm holes prevents this from occurring as well as the constant adjusting and slip sliding from the shoulders.

I love the print of this scarf, the style is Hi’Biscus and there are currently 15 styles available online.  Made in India, designed in the United States and are 100% Viscose.  Dry cleaning is recommended but I will hand wash in a tub of cool water and Woolite when it needs to be freshened then lightly steamed pressed with an iron.
