Gwynnie Bee: Anna Scholz Illusion Dress


Woo. The neckline on this dress was wicked low so I decided to wear a camisole to hide my bra! Other than that I really liked this dress. I'll wear it a few times, put it into the pre-labeled return bag and return it.

If I wanted to purchase the dress my Gwynnie Bee discount price is $112. Why out of my budget.

Ramblings of a Suburban Mom


I really appreciated Selma Hayek sharing this personal experience. And how she handled it was priceless.


Personally, I love a chilly office, especially when I was going through menopause!


Looks like many Americans, including me, have said good-bye to soda!

Gwynnie Bee: ELOQUII Pleated Skirts

"I'm so looking forward to styling these beautiful ELOQUII skirts that I received from Gwynnie Bee "!

Another bonus for being a Gwynnie Bee member is that with my weight loss, I'm not buying clothes. I just pay my monthly rental, pick the size, Gwynnie Bee sends the item. I wear it or not and send it back in the pre-paid return bag!

Organizing Junkie

Hubby and I spent Sunday at home. And I'm so glad we did! We watched lots of Netflix, did some gardening and took a much needed nap. I even made him Chicken Enchiladas and Rice. And for dessert, fried donuts with powdered sugar! Yum! It felt so good to have a whole day together.

Just because I can't enjoy my old favorites doesn't mean my husband shouldn't. Here's some dishes I'll be making for him.

Outfit of the Day! August 3, 2015



I love to see how I can create an outfit with my old standards and still look fashionable. I recently purchased a Target Merona black jacket for $34. I love the lining of the jacket so much that I decided to roll up the sleeves. What a fun outfit of the day!

Sunday Community: A Beautiful Day for a Walk



I find that a daily walk, no matter how far, early in the morning, is healing. But there's something very special about a Sunday morning walk. Our neighborhood hasn't quite woken up yet. The streets are quiet. And just the sounds of birds chirping and trees flowing the breeze to keep me company.

All my worries, concerns and fears seem to just disappear with each step. I even forget how much my body is in pain due to soaking in the sunshine.

What a wonderful way to end my week with a walk.
