Loving Life after 50

Princess Pink

I have been off the cruise ship for 11 days now and with more winter happening it may as well have been two months ago. I swear to you the tan is fading faster then Mother Nature ever intended.  Today I am back on the #carnivalglory reliving the “glory days” or at least the Cruise Elegant Night number two.
Have I mentioned lately how much I love cruising, seriously give me an excuse to dress up and I am so there. I love pretty party dresses. ( and today is wear Pink for Anti Bullying so double bonus)
H&M Pink Chiffon Dress, payless silver shoes and skull purse, Haggar suit, vanheusen shirt
The Cruise photographer we used was so good I really wanted to buy all of the pics but at 22.00 a piece I really thought I should restrain myself ( as it was I spent 200.00 on the pics oops).  I think Carnival should offer a better rate ( digital versions vs the paper versions, put a watermark on it showing Carnival took the pic, works for me,  and I would still gladly purchase it meaning all of them) 
I had to also pick up one of the |cruise ship”pictures because we were on the ship right……
H&M Pink Chiffon Dress, payless silver shoes and skull purse, Haggar suit

If you have followed me at all you may remember this dress from last summer, the dress i needed for the Convention that I did not find until one hour before the banquet started in London (Ontario). This is one of the best deals ever, H&M for $20.00 and I am still kicking myself for not also picking up the sage green chiffon ( so damn it, if anyone knows where a gal can get that sage green chiffon dress that H&M had in stock last spring/summer please message me)

Sadly I do not have a good shot of the purse because it is all glittery and pretty in silver with all these tiny skulls as a pattern, makes for a great contrast. Purse and shoes are from Payless ( also in London Ontario), Necklace was gifted (thanks Hails and Chels), Earrings Le Chateau and Kate Spade Watch.
Kent has on a Haggar Suit, Vanheusen Shirt and Docker Shoes ( forgot where we got the tie oops)

and before I forget my Wednesday Wish is World Peace, ok really it is for Spring to come really, really soon OK.  I also wish that that all homes with toddlers had doors as childproof as an aspirin bottle, far to many sad situations happening with these awful temperatures, my heart is a little broken over the death of a toddler in Toronto #RIPELIJAH

  • We heard about that poor little boy here in Australia! 🙁 It's sad, they can get into so much trouble when you least expect it…

    On a happier note, I like your holiday pictures! That dress really is very pretty on you, and it's wonderful you were able to dress up and make the most of your time on the ship 🙂
