Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Hello Friends, we have a new addition to the family!

On Wednesday, we welcomed a new little bundle to the family, it’s name is Spark, Chevy Spark. When Tayair pulled up the driveway I almost cried, it was the cutest little car I’ve ever seen. Not quite as small as a “Smart Car” but just as cute and compact as the Volkswagen Beetle was back in the ’30’s.

The 2002 Hyundai Elantra that Malik was driving began acting up, even after a replaced engine, the brakes and rods began to go and it just nickeled and dimed us so it was time to get rid of it, we will donate it to Goodwill.  We decided to hand down the 2005 Honda that was purchased in April and then get Tayair a new vehicle.  My husband had visited Diver Chevrolet last week and thought the Spark would be the perfect car for him, one that would get him from Point A to Point B and would last for many, many, many years!

Not having purchased a new vehicle since 2005, it was amazing to see all the bells and whistles in this basic car. I thought my friend’s Mercedes was loaded with amazing features but this little Spark was also equipped with some awesome controls, including Sirius XM Radio, Bluetooth, 9 airbags, USB outlet, touchscreen infotainment system, steering wheel mounted audio controls, and an emergency communication system (OnStar 6-month free trial).

I didn’t realize it was a 4-door, and squealed with delight when he opened the back doors, so cute and surprisingly comfortable with ample leg and head room.

The trunk was a bit too small for me and there isn’t a spare tire, instead an air compressor and a can of “fix it flat”, but with OnStar just a push of a button will get you emergency service.

This vehicle will be in the family for a long time to come and I can honestly say that it’s a welcomed addition even with the car payments!

Hello Friends and Happy Saturday, I hope you are having a fun filled day.

It was so nice to wake up to bright sunshine but we are expecting more snow this evening so I did my weekly grocery shopping this morning.  Shopped groceries for the week as well as goodies for Superbowl Sunday.  Safeway is my favorite store for deals, for example, DiGiorno Pizza is on sale for $3.88 each and can be coupled with a “J4U”, Buy 2 Get 1 Free coupon.  Taking advantage of that special and then using a Buy 2 Get 1 Free manufacturer’s coupon I paid .75 cents for two pizzas!

Safeway’s “Just 4U” app allows me to download coupons directly from my Smartphone or IPad onto my card and they offer savings for every $75.00 spent, you get a $10 Rewards Coupon.  Safeway is now also offering Gas Rewards to Exxon and Mobile and I have enough points to save .40 cent off per gallon, which is definitely a huge savings for me!

Saving money shopping the sales at Safeway was a great way to start my Saturday – now bring on the snow and GO RAVENS!!!

I didn’t wear these shoes to grocery shop but am continuing my support of  the GoRedForWomen Campaign this month.

Hello Friends and Happy Monday.  I hope you all had an enjoyable weekend with a chance to relax.  If you follow me on Instagram or Foursquare you know that I spent mine cleaning out desk drawers, shopping at Costco, Walmart and upgrading my Blackberry to a Smartphone at Radio Shack.  This morning I spent way too much time trying to decide on a belt and eventually settled on one that I’ve had since college, sometimes it pays to keep things.

Remember when I purchased the the pencil skirt and top from Target (here).  The shoes and cami were purchased at Ross.
