Loving Life after 50

Say What…..

I am seriously an unhappy camper,  I cannot eat for a whole 5 days and the scales are down like two lbs, proof I tell you that men control this world. Come’on gals are you not with me here,  if a woman was in control would the weight gods have not been kinder to me this week,  massive jaw infection that has made me look horrid, plus in pain plus nothing but soup and yogurt and I lose two friggin pounds. Oh well time to get over it and move on to far more exciting news……..

Exciting news you ask, well today I am Co-hosting Fashion Item Friday with the fantabulous Renae and yep it may be a made up word but there is nothing in my dictionary that describes her any better, not only a fantastic blogger and thrifty stylist but an inspiring woman who has been blogging all the way through chemotherapy. ( hence why I need to stop whining about feeling badly this week.) In addition if this woman can get blogging and posting fashion pics then this little chicky can get over a “swollen face” and try and embrace all that is good, so I did it, got cleaned up and got dressed and even used my Canon for some fashion pics, although apparently my eye is a bit off because the Canon pics were from the knee up ( oops). Good thing I still took some Ipad pics at the same time.

Been looking for an excuse to showcase this jumpsuit and I remembered something Meagan said over at Because of Jackie and her new philosophy is not to wait for special occasions embrace the day, wear what you want. So there ya have it, I have her permission to wear a fancy jumpsuit as I lounge around my house, its not like I can showcase a work outfit when I am not working right???

Plus my new necklace just arrived from Yosa, have you checked out Rachels new company yet?  I had a hard time limiting myself and when the necklace arrived there was a sweet surprise a lovely pair of earrings.  Concidentally I ordered the neon necklace and was sent bright pink earrings and my shoes are Neon yellow with pink soles so… a match made in heaven.

How fantastic does this necklace look???  I love it and with the pink earrings….
