Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Hello Friends – do you want to make the 1st Monday of the summer better?

Then do what I do, think of  your favorite summer songs, you know the ones that you just have to hear every year no matter how old it is…the ones you only listen to when it’s hot outside or when you’re on vacation?

Okay, now download, stream or pull them up on Pandora, turn up the volume, then sing along loudly in your office or cubicle – sike…don’t get fired…or carted off to Bellevue,  just sing quietly and chair dance!

This is the list with link to my six favorite summer songs.

Sundress – C.o.C.o Brown & The Phat Cat Players

Summertime – Will Smith

Under The Boardwalk – The Drifters

Celebration – Kool & The Gang

Hot Hot Hot – Buster Poindexter

Heatwave – Martha & The Vandellas

Summer songs and summer wear seem to go hand-in hand, hence my #1 jam, so when it’s hot all day everyday, I prefer a sundress.  This is one of my favorites thrifted from GW Boutique.

cheerios

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

Last week while watching television a new commercial for Cheerios came on and it immediately caught my attention.  The cute little girl was obviously “mixed” or biracial, cute as a button with corkscrew curls, talking to her mother, who is Caucasian.  She’s just checking to see if what her dad said was true, that Cheerios were good for the heart.  Once mom verifies that Cheerios are Heart Healthy she quickly runs out of the kitchen.

The next scene is that of her African American father napping on the sofa, waking up with a chest full of Cheerios.  This heart-healthy, family commercial is cute…right?

To some people “no” it’s not, I guess to them having 1 biracial person featured on television is enough – sorry little Cheerios girl the President filled the quota.

Watch the video and tell me what you think.

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Today is actually my Friday as I will officially be on vacation starting at 5:00 p.m. today until next Tuesday- que up the Flintstone’s theme song – YabbaDabbaDoo!!!  I can’t believe it’s the Memorial Day Weekend already, seems like only yesterday it was Easter.  I guess it’s true what they say, the older you get the faster time passes.  Oh and before I have another senior moment – Congratulations to all the parents of the Class of 2013, you did an excellent job and should be very proud of yourself!

Today’s outfit is a floral dress thrifted from GW Boutique and sandals from Payless, which by the way is having a major sale, and don’t forget to show your AAA Card for an additional 10% off.

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

My normal daily commute into work is 90-minutes, but throw in a gapper delay or a car accident and it can easily turn into 2 hours which was the case this morning.  My ultimate fantasy is to have one of those space cars that George Jetson drove…remember that 1960’s cartoon, The Jetsons?

Life is so unpredictable and I was granted traveling mercies for which I am blessed and truly thankful!
