The weight game ?

      Forty five was a rough turning point in my life. Why ? Because my darn body was becoming a mom body.  My then 18 year old daughter said mom your not fat, your just womanly now. Thanks !! My arms were no longer lean and my once flat stomach is now.....well let's just say, not pretty. Growing old, lack of sleep and zero exercise  has given me that mom glow. Not the glow of maternity mom, but the dim glow of a light slowly burning out. I could fight it and use my gym membership. Hmmmm. I say no!!! I will instead buy tunics and send texts to my girlfriends saying I'm fat 🐖 and they will reply so am I. Today I drank water, ate yogurt, granola and lean turkey in lettuce. Tomorrow I will walk past cookies and drink water and cry for a Starbucks.  Will I loose weight? Probably not!!! Will my face look fabulous? Yes.  Why?  because it has fat on it and I discovered Gold Bond for the Neck (woohoo) Will my tummy look fabulous? No! Why?  because it has fat on it. So the moral of the story is????? im screwed. I'm getting older, my metabolism has changed, I'm more tired now then ever, and who in the hell am I trying to impress? No one 

Latest finds to cover up flaws but still feel cute I'll let you know how they look

Wrap it up......give with love

Just for you..     

     Wrap it up and give it with happiness. Baskets can be either highly unique or just down right horrible. As a kid baskets said I went to Hickory Farms for your gift. I would just frown at the assorted cheese and crackers.  As I got older baskets where thank you's from corporate companies. The baskets were thoughtless a array of anything that may look fancy to the common eye. Today thanks to Pinterest baskets have grown to meaningful words such as I Love You.  My goal for this year is to make special baskets for my girlfriends to say thank you, I love you, and cheers.

Blogger shopping

     I'm now obsessed with Blogger shopping. Yes I've fallen into the trap of looking at clothes and buying them from some cheap over seas company. I've become a shopping slug. I don't want to go to the Mall or visit my favorite consignment store.  I want to sit on my cumfy sofa, with a blanket on my lap and scroll through instagram and push like. Like! As in liketoknowit ...... What a lazy world this has become.  My latest buy was a blouse from Zaful. I love it with shorts (as shown) for my daughters. As for me, jeans is how I chose to pair it. I wore for the first time to a photoshoot and it was easy to move and work in.  It would also be an adorable beach cover up. Just ordered a few things from She-in so we will see how they rate.  I'm not looking for amazing quality, I know better, but what I'm looking for is clothing that is cute and trendy for a season.
