Green peplum off shoulder top

It’s been weeks, ya’ll. Weeks since I’ve posted anything on here. My desktop computer crashed and I ordered a hard drive and then started the process of recovering it so I can use photos, ect on my lap top. But, I’m back. I’m sure you all missed me!

On to the fashion. From a few weeks ago. Moving into spring in a green off shoulder peplum top with a fun twisted chain detail at the top and super soft stretchy jeans. I found these at Goodwill. Meant to use them as a project to cut off and fray the hem, but I liked them so much just they way they were that I didn’t want to cut them and fray the hem. Instead, I have a pair with a broken side zipper I decided to cut the side zippers off and fray those along the edge. Re-purposing the old and enjoying the new ones!

The top is old, end of season off the clearance racks at Kohl’s. Can’t remember what I paid for it, but I tend to shop there with $5 or $10 off coupons + a discount percentage off, so I get things for a super good deal off the clearance racks. Yep.That’s how I roll. Trying to make clearance rack clothing even cheaper. Ha.

The blue velvet shoes were on clearance at Ross, not sure where the white sweater jacket came from. I believe someone gave it to me. Kate Spade New York handbag was a gift from Kate Spade New York last year, because they are awesome. Or because I am. Not sure which. Hmmm. Hahaha.

In the meantime, my mom finished up her radiation treatments in early March and will get her next cat scan in early May. She gets two months off for good behavior, or some such thing, in between. (Radiation is pretty hard on your body, so she is given 8 weeks off to recuperate.) Keep her in your prayers as she’s still battling this awful disease called cancer.

Recently, I decided to buy some R-Alpha Lipoic Acid because a friend sent me an article about it healing up nerves and nephropathy, kidney’s, livers and even cancer. I think the article was sent to me regarding my moms cancer, but as I was reading it helps heal nerves and I have a sciatic nerve problem, I decided to give it a go for myself and be the guinea pig for anyone else among my family or friends in need of healing. I’ll update you at some point down the road so you can find out if it worked. I am taking it with a B-complex as it said it could deplete your vitamin B levels. Fingers crossed that I can be healed of my sciatic nerve pain rather than taking Amitriptyline to relax my nerves for the rest of my days…

New Years Eve party outfit ideas

New Years Eve is almost upon us. The old year almost over, the new one just about to begin. About time, if you ask me. It’s been a tough year dealing with physical pain and financial strain. Time to pull of of the funk this year has been and move forward to a fresh new start. Let’s do this!

Are you ready to party? Here are some fun New Years Eve outfit ideas straight from Amazon for anyone heading out for the evening. If you have Amazon Prime, you can still get these in two days. If not, sign up for a free trial here.

 

Party outfits

 

Loving the 20’s flapper girl style dresses out there right now. Plus, gunmetal gray, yes please! Sparkly sequined jumpsuits and pants are a must have as well. Beads, fringe & flare are all in for New Years Eve. A jumpsuit or sparkly pants might be a warmer option for cold nights, but you can always add tights, tall boots and warm coats to keep you warm. Go big or go home.

 

People say 'Go big or go home' like it's a bad thing. Hell yeah, I wanna go home. And I'm gonna take a nap when I get there.

 

I don’t have any fun plans for New Years Eve this year, but a quiet night in sounds just fine to me. If I did go out, I would definitely find something shiny and sparkly to wear.

I’ll be spending this weekend with family as my sisters family will all be up for the holiday weekend. Maybe we’ll end up at Powell’s bookstore or Ikea as the weather is going to be rainy and cloudy.

To all of you going out to party the night away, be safe and have fun.
