Happy Monday, everyone! Today I want to share with you a couple of lessons I recently learned with my new lifestyle wardrobe and my over 60 skincare.
But, first…thanks to everyone who commented yesterday on my kitchen…needless to say, I love it and I am back to enjoying cooking once again!
FIRST LESSON LEARNED: WARDROBE
Since July (when I was part of a COVID layoff and decided to officially work at home), I have been scrutinizing my wardrobe for my new (out-of-the-office-building) style.
It is only recently that I realized I have more than enough jackets and toppers and what I really need to concentrate on is adding more tops that can be worn without the third piece.
This is especially true living in a warmer climate.
I have enjoyed looking for tops which have a unique, creative touch like this Chico’s embellished peasant top.
I paired it recently with my older Soft Surroundings snake print leggings…because it is a black print, it is difficult to see here. But I really like these pants a lot and wear them often.
The shoes are a suede pointed-toe comfort shoe from Rockport.
A look like this is for going to lunch or out with Mr. B when I want to step things up to casual chic, but I have learned these are the types of tops I need to add.
SECOND LESSON LEARNED: SKINCARE
Just to remind readers…I am the ripe age of 67, and love it when someone remarks that I look younger…so, like everyone else, I have looked for a skincare line which helps me to achieve that goal.
Actually, what I really want is a youthful, healthy glow to my skin …skin which looks nourished.
Two years ago, I discovered such a skincare line with Chamonix Genucel…it is a plant based, all natural line using plant stem cell technology.
I saw an immediate change to my skin and decided from that point I would only use their products.
But, bloggers are sent tons of samples and asked to promote many products of different price ranges. I usually pass those along to friends and family…even Mr. B.
But, recently I caved in to a persuasive plea and tried a new product (will not mention it here…not fair to them)…and I regretted it the moment I looked in the mirror the next morning.
I was looking at red blotchy skin with horror…I had a reaction to something in that product…thankfully Chamonix saved the day for me.
Chamonix had already asked me to try a new product: Zotique Deep Correcting Serum and, lo and behold, it corrected me!! I reached for it as soon as I saw the red blotches.
I used the serum with my regular moisturizer, Genucel XV, on top (which I have used twice daily for two years)…and amazingly I was glowing again.
LESSON LEARNED: I will only wear Chamonix. They do not pay me to say (they don’t pay me at all!) it is the only skincare line I believe in for my complexion, but that is what I am saying.
I regret the temptation to try another product, and have returned home to my go to brand.
LESSON LEARNED ON THE TIMES
I realize the numbers are rising for the pandemic bringing on more panic and fear. But, my lesson learned is that we can experience joy and hope from home if we set our minds to it.
Choose Joy this day and join me in smiling at the week ahead…no matter what it holds. Practice safety and optimism at the same time.
Tomorrow, I will share a recent cooking lesson learned at the request of my daughter! There is so much to discuss going through the end of this challenging year.
All entries are in for the contest. Leigh Ann and I will look these over and announce a winner as soon as we can.
