Gwynnie Bee: A by Amanda Uprichard Floral Top

Gwynnie Bee is a monthly clothing subscription service. You pick a monthly plan that best fits your budget, add clothes to your virtual closet, GB sends you clothes based on your plan, try on, wear and send back in the blue pre-labeled postage return bag! Oh, don't forget to let GB know that you're returning so they can get item(s) out to you ASAP! Or you can chose to purchase item(s) at the GB discount price! GB will send you item(s) to try on. Woohoo!!

My current Gwynnie Bee monthly plan is $35 plus tax. I received 1 item plus earned upgrades. An affordable way to check my wardrobe fun and fresh.

Gwynnie Bee: Modamix Colorblocked Jacquard Skirt

Here's a asymmetrical skirt that's been making the rounds among the Gwynnie Bee members this summer.

Zippers, color and print give the wearer a slim and trendy look. Thanks Gwynnie Bee!

I partnered it with a Target white V-neck T-shirt that I bought at clearance. T-shirts are versatile, year round additions to my wardrobe.

Finished off this look, with a pair of #IMPO black and silver kitten heels makes it awesome for a day of running errands.

Gwynnie Bee: Karen Kane Full Spectrum Scuba Dress

This is a dress that's perfect for late summer. Just add a blazer or light cardigan if the weather turns cool. Thanks Gwynnie Bee!

I also paired it with my Madden Girl open-toed pumps from THREDup for a summer lunch with the hubby!

HuffPost Live: Thursday Thoughts

40% of women suffer from hair loss and I'm one of them! My solution: wigs!

You know, it's still a treat when a question or statement, of mine, is shared with a HuffPost Live guest. Watch Elisabeth Moss respond to my question. Thanks Elisabeth for your wonderful response.

I didn't think 'Joey' was a good spinoff idea. What spinoff did you think was a bad idea?

Yes! Companies are definitely behind this crazy 'national holidays'. Oh by the way, It's National Hamburger Day!

THREDup: Madden Girls Heels

THREDup is an online consignment store that offers brand name clothing, shoes and accessories at discount prices. I purchased these Madden Girls heels for $23.

They also accept items on consignment. Check out the website and see how much you can save.

Had an Eyebrow Threading and Treated Myself to a Handbag

Sometimes, I'm wicked sensitive to pain. So when I headed to my favorite eyebrow salon, for a threading, even the eyebrow technician noticed I was having a rough time and offered to take breaks. I decided to continue on with the process but not without tears.

Before I left the salon I decided to buy this floral orange trim handbag as a reward for surviving the ordeal. Love it!

OPI Spa Mani-Pedi

I headed to my favorite nail salon, treated myself to a Deluxe Spa Mani-Pedi. This time I didn't bring my own nail polish. I really like these OPI nail polish colors. Perfect for late summer!

Rocksbox Jewelry Subscription Box Has Arrived !

This Rocksbox Jewelry Subscription Box was wonderful. I usually am not a gold jewelry fan but when I tried on the SLATE Beyond The Horizon necklace I became a fan!

I wore the other necklaces, Loren Hope Blythe necklace in Seafoam and Crystal. Love them too.

That's the beauty of Rocksbox. For only $19 a month, I get to try on and wear different pieces necklaces, bracelets and rings, keep them as long as I like, buy them at a discount or return them in a pre-labeled return stamped address envelope.

Once Rocksbox gets my return notification, they start to assemble another box for me.

Hope You're Having a Great Summer!

First, I have to say that summers in Vegas aren't my favorite time of year. If you've ever visited Las Vegas, you may have idea of what I'm talking. By noon, we're usually over 90 degrees. By 8pm, we're still in the 100s.

For the locals, it can be overwhelming living in this environment. The bright sun and heat requires all shades to wear sunscreen. And please don't leave your kids in the car! Despite the warning, we still lose some of young.

Anyways, I'm not here to just talk about the many dangers in the Vegas heat but more to talk about fall is coming!

My husband and I love taking walks to the park and farmers market when the cooler temperatures arrive.

Even better, I cut of the A/C, open the windows and watch our curtains move with the breeze! Lower electric bill!

So here wishing everyone a continued wonderful Summer. And wishing for fall temperatures in Las Vegas very soon!
