Color=Happiness?

Hello Friends!

Oh my goodness my favorite day of the work week, Friday is upon us! I never really understood how much joy can be packed into one day (until it arrives and I’m almost giddy!) Happy end of the week, beginning of the weekend! Boom!

Another thing I realized made me happy is color. I don’t know if that sounds strange? Today I wore this vibrant red/blue/black patterned skirt from (H&M) and an (older) pink tee (Express)-paired with blue sandals (Nordstrom Rack), red bag (JCPenney) and bauble bright blue earrings (Sugarfix-Target-the bomb). I also had a red moto jacket this morning cause it was a wee bit chilly but not now. I realized that the shade of red in my bag and skirt has undertones of blue (that’s really what makes the blue work) and as I was sitting in the car, trapped on the freeway, I was mesmerized the beautiful colors. It’s almost as if I’m viewing beautiful spring flowers, that’s the only way I can describe it. Of course the sun is shining too and I singing at the top of my lungs to “Greatest Showman” soundtrack, so I’m pretty much nestling in the clouds with joy even though I’m trapped on the freeway going 10mph…so ironic right?? (This was my thought process-does this color make me happy?? I think so)

Those of you that wonder about my choice of music, YES I ATTENDED ANOTHER MOVIE LAST NIGHT…this is the third movie since last Saturday, and I feel like my MoviePass purchase was a good decision LOL!

Happy Friyay-Weekend!

Pop of Spring Color

Hello Friends and happy Wednesday!

It seems as if Wednesday came really quickly to me, what happened? Well I attended a neighborhood gathering on Monday, last night went to the movies and all of a sudden it’s Wednesday! Yay! Maybe I should have plans every night for some type of fun? It seems to lower my stress with work right?

I thought I would share a fun look inspired by my recent copy of In Style magazine (Demi Lovato on the cover).

I love to get inspiration by magazines and I saw in one page spread several pictures of light pink and yellow or gold together. I thought I would copy that look with my baby pink sweat pants (JCPenney) and my yellow “anchor” sweatshirt (OldNavy). It’s a fun combination, although a little casual for work, so I added my pink (Coach) sandas (I got them last year for my daughter’s wedding) and a fun (Betsy Johnson) bag I got not too long ago at TJMaxx with glittery rose gold earrings. I think the accessories raised my look to more dressy for work.

When I got home I switched into my pink sneakers for a fun movie night, we saw “I Could Only Imagine” and seriously it was amazing. Go and see if you have a chance, great movie! Hope you like my pink and yellow look and….happy Wednesday!

MoviePass Review (and other musings on being a woman)

Hello Friends!

Happy Weekend! What’s everyone doing??

I did something interesting this morning.

It all started about a week ago. I’m a huge movie buff (I think you can already tell, sometimes I dress to match my movies LOL) I had heard my co worker’s friends had a movie app with unlimited movies, I thought that might be my THING. So I cruised through the app store on my iPhone and tada! Up popped MoviePass…I signed up to pay $9.95 a month in exchange for free pass to a movie a day. Sounds about my speed right??

It took about a week to get our MoviePass card (you download the app and then MoviePass sends you a card, like a credit card-with my name and a number) you register your card on your app, then head to a theatre. There are many in my area affiliated with MoviePass. Outside the theatre, I check in (on my app) for the movie and time I want to see, then head inside to pay at the kiosk for my seat.

We saw the new Tomb Raider movie with Alicia Vikander at 10:30am (I know I vowed to lay in my bed til lunchtime but I was excited to use my MoviePass-haha). It was a fun movie (lots of action and twists in the plot) except I kept comparing it to Lara Croft: Tomb Raider with Angelina Jolie. I just think Angelina Jolie is a badA compared to Alicia Vikander. Jolie has this attitude and she’s sort of like a superhero-I mean she is behind sled dogs racing a crumbling structure without a sled?? Nobody else knows how to figure out the riddles except her (well Alicia does that too, that’s true)-but I can’t give things away for those of you who haven’t seen it. It’s fun and worth seeing. I’ve included a pic of me and hubs as we left the theatre 🙂

I sit and wonder how can Angelina or Alicia kick butt like they do in movies and be so freakin tiny? I think that is one thing that contributes to women/girls perception that thinness is more important than everything else. Wonder Woman is pretty thin too, have you seen Gal Gadot? Regular women do not look like that; I think Hollywood does women a disservice. I have a friend that does crossfit and really I think she could be Tomb Raider. She has muscles, like real muscles. I think if Hollywood wants to show me a crimefighting, world saving, smart woman; please oh please let her be real. I know lots of real women that save the world and are smart and fight crime. Let’s have a real woman as a role model OK?

Shopper Held for Ransom(

Hello Friends!

This is an urgent message for Obi Wan Gabbana:

I’m a member of the Obsessed Shoppers Committee on a diplomatic mission to Target! Their many brands: Who What Wear, ANewDay, Ava & Vive, Knox Rose, Mossimo, Universal Thread, Sugarfix, and Xhileration are too much for a simple impulsive woman (like me) and can be classified as an act of war 😉 LOL (I guess you could say I’ve been watching Star Wars! I even speak six shoe languages, although not Bacchi)

Every time I go to Target I find great items I would love to snag, although we all know I need to exercise SOME self control, it’s a skill right? So instead of buying everything I see, I will take some pics of my favorite pieces and tell you what I would do with them! That’s just as much fun as a diplomatic mission to Alderaan right??? (I AM NOT A COMMITTEE!) Help me Obi Wan Gabbana you’re my only hope…

NOW PRINCESS WE WILL DISCUSS THE LOCATION OF YOUR HIDDEN TARGET CARD!

Bahahahahahaha! (Cute princess below is my granddaughter a few years ago) 😘

ok I found several darling pieces at Target!

Aren’t all these the cutest?? I love the lavender mini bag! I ended up buying the (3rd) and (5th) items! The floral lace skirt was only $8 and the earrings regular price but are super cute with the skirt and I’m thinking a gray t shirt or sweater depending on weather 😊

The two floral tanks would be cute with white pants and a jean jacket or bright jacket to match the tanks.

I love both shoes! Aren’t they darling! I think the olive green sandals would go with anything and same with the slides. They’re both so fun and summery.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my Target review! Go and see if there’s something you would enjoy! Have a happy weekend!

Sobbing Hysterically

Hello friends!

Have any of you seen “Something’s Gotta Give”?? I know it’s an old movie but (spoiler here!) in the middle when he is a schmuck and she gets hurt- spending 10 minutes of the movie sobbing dramatically (excellently I might add) which I love every time I watch it and giggle the whole way through! It’s one of my favorite movies!

It was also International Women’s Day yesterday and I thought this is a great movie for women! The heroine in the movie is smart, provides for herself, is amazingly funny, beautiful, talented, and everyone wants to be around her! It’s one of my favorite movies, you gotta check it out!

Have a happy weekend everyone! Thanks for reading!

(Enclosed are pictures of my two daughters and I- all of us fierce women 😉

Couchin’

Hello friends!

So hubs and I spent most of our Saturday helping my daughter get her house ready to sell. They had cleaning and wall repairs needed to be done and many hands make light work right??

I got home, dressed in clean clothes and put my eyebrows on (LOL) and then got groceries (I wore almost all gray to match the snow, I’m sort of in mourning cause it seems like winter is starting all over again UG)…then….

So I just got home and hubs is laying on his reclined chair;  (we put groceries away) I’m laying on the reclined couch and he’s watching Big Bang Theory on DVR…and he’s sound asleep (so I guess not really watching it LOL) and we hit commercials….and here I am -awake obviously but I don’t have enough energy, desire, or motivation to get up and get the remote!

I’m in a terrible dilemma….so I sit here and flippin watch commercials until he stirs when Big Bang ends…LOL Oi!

I’m so smart! I suggested we put a movie (Batman Begins-I totally have a thing for Christian Bale) in the DVD player cause then I can continue to sit and relax without worrying if he’s gonna wake up to skip commercials! Life is a challenge right and I totally have all the answers!! Bahahahaha!

Jason Bourne in the Fashion World

Hello Friends!

So since I’ve been sick, I’ve been entertaining myself with every disaster movie I own- Titanic, 2012, Day After Tomorrow, Poseidon (I saw the original I think in 1974 with my mom and Dad; Michelle and Kami were visiting their dad in California and we went to the movies-granted it was two years after release, but that was normal for our part of Wyoming). LOL

I’ve watched all the Twilight movies (my son Connor watched the war scene at the end last night, then realized “wait that wasn’t real??WTF!!” ha ha I know, crazy huh), all the Bourne movies (which are really good BTW, we watched Bourne Legacy last night) and I got this crazy idea promoted by Jason Bourne….what if I was a secret agent? I’m undercover for AMAZING OLDER WOMEN COMPANY working for (some elite design company) trying to uncover a sadistic plot to keep older women out of the fashion scene. Several executives found out my real identity and have secretly given me “green pills” that cause a terrible virus and super accelerated aging that will keep me from exposing their terrible truth (Thus the reason I am sick)! But I will not be thwarted! I will live! I will survive this awful virus (this will make a great movie right??) Let me know if you’re interested in the rights 😉

(these are the odd things I think while stuck on my couch sick watching every movie ever made) LOL oh and Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! (I did get dressed- see my pink and floral pants below-but that took too much energy and effort so I’m laying back down)
