Spring Sparkles

untitled-2

It’s spring sparkles today. Don’t you just love it when you have old, cherished pieces of clothing you can wear over and over? It’s one of the benefits of purchasing pieces that’s not trendy. You get milage out of them.

Such is the case with this sequin top and pants i’m wearing. I love, love them, and as long as they fit me, I will keep them in my closet for a few wears per year. And though i’ve worn these pieces before, i’ve never worn them together. I paired them up with a new Blazer from Jcrew, and it did the trick.

Really, dressing stylishly or fashionably or whatever you want to call it doesn’t have to cost a lot. Recycling your clothing with one or two current pieces can make your look fresh and fashion forward.

Always Cheesing

DSC_2367 - Version 2

I am always cheesing. Somehow not smiling does not work well for me. So all the lines and wrinkles on my face are and will be odes to my countless smiles.

It feels so great to wear a few pieces of clothing at a time. Spring is in the air every where I turn around.

Marsala and Denim

It’s always great to hook up with my fellow, fabulous bloggers. Today i’m posting with a few plus forty blogger sistas. We’re all of the mindset that fashion is fabulous after 40. So we live it and we have fun with it.

Thank you to Sheela Goh, who brought us to together to do a collaborative post with a Denim and Marsala theme. I happen to love pantone’s color of the year, and all it’s variations. And paired with denim, ahhh, even more lovable.

Spring Love List

Spring Love List

 

My spring love list.

A girl can splurge. In fact, every girl ought to splurge every once in a while. It’s a small part of the self care curriculum. But be mindful, and mind you budget, because this splurging stuff can get you in some serious trouble.

And though purchasing everything is not prudent on my budget, I will get a few, and I’ll be on the look out for pieces that mimic the other looks. What’s your spring splurge?

THE LOVE LIST

| Sunglasses: Karen Walker | Jeans: Diesel (Already own this one. Absolutely  love the fit) | Blazer: Alexander Mc Queen| Tee: Zara; Bag: Chanel| Bracelet: Hermes | Shoes: Christian Louboutin |

8 Tips For A Skintastic Spring

glowing spring skin

Spring the sensational is almost here, and if you haven’t already, it’s time to start prepping and pampering your pretty skin. To maintain a healthy and gorgeous complexion, tender, loving care an consistency is definitely the key. What you put on is what you’ll get out. Skintastic spring skin is always a win.

Here are 8 simple tips that will help you get your skin gorgeous and glowing this spring.

  • Exfoliate your body with a salt or sugar scrub to slosh away dead skin cells and reveal beautiful, glowing skin. My choice, Dixie Bits’ Sweet Sugar Darlin Scrub. It’s my spring and summer skin sensation in a jar.
  • Apply SPF of 3o or wear a broad rim hat to help protect your face from UV damage, especially if you’re using retinoids and chemical peels with glycolic acid, which tend to attract the sun’s rays. My favorite summer hats are the panama: they offer style and practicality and of course some sun protection.
  • Hydrate your skin from the inside by drinking lots of water. The suggested amount is 8 glasses.
  • Eat healthy and balanced meals. Be sure to include lots of fruits and vegetables.
  • Exercise at least 3 days out of the week. Even slow walking helps. Perhaps use the stairs instead of the elevator at work. Increased oxygen to your cells will nourish and refresh you skin cells.
  • Sleep well. Cell repair and tissue rejuvenation requires rest. Try to get 6 to 8 hours of sleep per night. Your skin will thank you.
  • Wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from UVA and UVB damage. In addition, wearing sunglasses prevents squinting, which leads to fine lines and wrinkles. As a rule, I never, ever leave the house without my sunglasses.
  • Pamper your pretty feet and hands. It always feels good to get a great manicure and pedicure.

 

Love To Layer

Some days it’s just me, the mirror and my phone. So, I snap a selfie and make it a blog post. I love to layer, and today it was a simple grouping of old closeted items.

The tunic I wear as a dress in the summer. I paired it up with a black turtleneck and leather pants. You can layer with jersey dress or an oversized tee-shirt.
