ImPress helped give my nails a break

Thursday, December 31, 2015

I love getting  a gel nail polish manicure, it gives me great nails for 2 weeks or longer .
Recently I decided to let my nails breathe for a few weeks. Once I had the gel polish removed I started to notice my nails breaking and chipping pretty bad. The UV light and gel polish can be harsh on the hands and nails. To keep my nails looking manicured , I decided to purchase  Impress RealFeel Press on Nails from Walmart .
I am going to give it a try, so far it works gives and my nails a fresh look. I will use it while my nails recover. Impress  Press On Nails comes in a variety of colors and lasts 7 - 10  days . Best of all ImPress doesn't require glue. 

How you do to keep your nails looking glamorous without the risk damaging them ?

I switched up outfit pieces.This red duster works well as part of this new ensemble.

Wednesday, December 30, 2015

Red has not always been a color I felt comfortable wearing. It is the color worn by my sorority, so I have had to wear it more often.  A few years ago I needed a red outfit for an event. I bought a sheath dress  that came with a duster. I did not care for the dress, so I paired the duster with a pair of pants and black blouse. I got lots of compliments.  I donated the dress and recently pulled this duster out and took a few photos for the holidays.

What about you ? Are there colors you have experimented with?

I am wild about this thrifted jacket.

Monday, December 28, 2015

I like to use various prints in my wardrobe, I bought an animal print jacket from Goodwill in Central Ga. I put the jacket with a pair of thrifted chocolate brown pants and thrifted suede boots. The outfit came together. The jacket is very lightweight and versatile and can easily be worn with jeans or a skirt .
Do you thrift a variety of wardrobe pieces that you can wear both as dressy and casual?

I went to be Pampered

Sunday, December 13, 2015

This evening I attended my first
MIDDLE GA. PAMPERED LADIES event. I arrived at Macon Historic Terminal Station to find hundreds of ladies shopping, being pampered with  on site massages,  hand massages and trying out many samples of everything from blueberry wines to specialty foods.Yes, I must mention the ticket fee included a wonderful meal.There were also  continuous drawings for giveaways from the many vendors. Best of all the sponsors used the event to collect a huge toy donation for Kids Yule Love charity. I am all for supporting good causes.So I dropped off my own toy donation which came with an entry to the grand prize drawings. No I did not win , but the experience was a good one. I would attend the event again and encourage others to do so. Good Job MGPL founders!
***Yes parts of my outfit were thrifted( blouse Salvation Army) necklace( Rescue Mission of Middle Ga.Inc.)shoes were my birthday gift from mom.

My Gift of Gold

Last  year my cousin was moving , so she called me to take a look at some stuff was getting ready to throw out. I look through the pile of things and was able to get some clothing pieces out. The item that grabbed me was a pair of gold toned boots.They were a good addition to a recent thrifted outfit that I wore to an outing at High Falls State Park. I always say  ""gifted is better than thrifted ".
Thanks cousin Sylvia King. I hope to wear them before the winter is over.

Rolling Run Way. Fashion on Wheels

Friday, December 11, 2015

I attended the first ever Macon Food Truck Festival in October. I was excited about the food trucks but equally excited about meeting the young ladies of Rolling Runway. They brought there silver airstream (that they affectionately call Sylvia) which was filled with great trendy fashions. I loved it the color scheme bright teal , silver and hints of gold was amazing . I must mention that the owners were very friendly. I have read more about their story and found it very interesting how they went from students working in retail while they attended The University of Georgia and moved on to buying an antique air stream which they did the overhaul on and began their journey a great business venture! Much Luck and Success to these young ladies. Keep an eye out from them at an event near you !!

Oh My You Got to See what I found at the Thrifty Lizard

Thursday, December 10, 2015

I love shopping at thrift and resale stores when I travel . In August I was in Carrollton Ga. When I spotted a neat consignment store called The Thrifty Lizard. It was late in the evening, so the store was closed . I took down the address and business hours, so I could do my visit the next day on my lunchbreak . I found my way back to The Thrifty Lizard, inside I found a great layout of well cared for items that ranged from shoes and clothing of all sizes. Then I spotted the jewelry! Ah yes I love jewelry.I was immediately drawn to a necklace with nice embellishments! The clerk said "oh that is so you" ! And the rest is history, I bought it and a few clothing items that were part of the sale of the week! I have family in the Carrollton area so, I would certainly shop at the Thrifty Lizard Again!!

Out in Central Ga. Ran into Otis Redding

Tuesday, December 1, 2015

Recently I was out in Gray Ga.
I had heard about a neat display honoring the late great Otis Redding. As I drove into Gray I spotted it. There it stood ,a big nice replica of a vinyl record partially pulled out of a record cover on the front side.

I Made The Ultimate Donation . Would You ?

Friday, November 20, 2015

A year ago in August my sister Kelley got the terrible news that she had acute myeloid leukemia. My family was upside down, since she and my sister in law both got terrible diagnoses that weekend. Yes same weekend! Leukemia for one and breast cancer out of remission for the other.

Sis had to start chemotherapy just days after the diagnosis and it was bad , she had the worst form , it was very aggressive quickly taking her numbers down down.Chemo was started along with various other treatments. she was hospitalized for weeks. Shortly after treatment was started and it was determined that a stem cell donation was needed to save her life. All 3 of her siblings( me and our two brothers )  were tested , once the results were in I got the call that I was a perfect match even though they like using the cells of younger sibling. A perfect match lessened the rejection factor. The stem cell transplant was scheduled for Nov. 20th ( one year ago today ) just days before a major surgery I had already been scheduled to undergo.  I  rescheduled my surgery to go thru the process to prepare to be her donor. Nov. 19th I underwent three hours of the donation process in which they gathered 18.9 million stem cells and early in the morning of  Nov. 20, 2014  the transplant was done . Kelley had several more months of treatments as her body got acclimated to the new cells . I am happy to report that today she was told that she is in full remission and doing well.

I learned that being a donor was not painful and all expense related and it was taken care of by the patient's insurance.

How about you would you think twice about being a donor in order to save the life of  a sibling? Think about donating the The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. They host annual Light the Night Walks as a Fundraiser for funding blood cancer research.

I Stay Connected with Straight Talk Wireless

Saturday, November 14, 2015

I believe in being thrift and cost conscious in as many ways as possible, so a few years ago when my nephew Deont'e Hunt told me about Straight Talk.  I was curious about how to get signed up for unlimited data, talk and text for a non contract plan with a set monthly fee. I was skeptical ,but willing to give it a try. I switched from a big name national carrier and have not looked back. I chose Straight Talk with the option of using AT&T network towers.  I use my Straight Talk phone for my for many posts and tweets. The service is very reliable and a great value for the money ! 

Do you use contract or non contract wireless to stay connected?

My Thrifted Outfit : New City Church Women's Conference

Wednesday, November 4, 2015

On Saturday Oct. 24th I attended a wonderful Women's Conference at local church called New City Church.
They hosted a great 3 session event with Jani Oultman as the speaker, under the theme “Boundless”. The conference was an awesome and inspiring event.
I decided to pull out some of my thrift collection to wear. I chose my brand new Jones New York gray slacks and topped them off with my thrifted multi print blouse. I completed to look with accessories which included a necklace from Diva Diva Boutique and I must say it accented my blouse perfectly.  

Flirt With Color Without Commitment

Have you ever wondered how a new hair color or highlights would look on you? Before doing a permanent hair color change you can try it out with a wig.
Well I wanted to try something new but am afraid to commit to getting my hair colored. A few weeks ago I was out and about and stopped into a local beauty supply store, it was huge and filled with a little of everything. I found my way to the wigs and hairpieces section. There were many styles and color combinations to choose from.I selected a bob style wig with slight auburn highlights in the front and on the sides. It gives me an idea what I would look like if I took the leap and permanently highlighted my own hair .Thanks to wigs we can experiment with great hairdos from day to day.

What about you? Do you use hair pieces or wigs etc.  to change up  your hair game?

I am glad I decided to purchase my first pair of rain boots on that beautiful sunny day, because they came in handy this rainy day in Georgia!

Black and Orange for Halloween-How did it Come to be?

Saturday, October 31, 2015

  What is the origin of Halloween colors?  

Have you ever wondered about the origin of Halloween colors? It is the custom of the celebration to use orange and black in decorations and costumes. Retailers embrace this holiday because it’s one of the most lucrative of all.

As the Celtics are given the most credit for beginning the holiday as the festival of the harvest, a color of autumn is used. Orange, being the most prevalent autumn tone, is derived from the pumpkin and leaves.

Many people use pumpkins hollowed out as urns or vases to hold masses of fall mums or carve them into ghoulish or scary jack-o-lanterns with lit candles or mini electric lights inside to cast an eerie glow.

The color orange also signifies strength and endurance. We don’t know if that is for the holiday or strength and endurance at the harvest time. Since the Celtics were involved in wars with Julius Caesar, they may have believed the color orange gave courage to those who wore the color during battle. Little is know about this idea.

Halloween was once (and still may be in some areas) a festival of the dead. Death is usually associated with darkness and absence of light signified by the color black.

Black cats, witches hats, cauldrons, and streamers are a few of the items that are reminders of the holiday. Most candies at this time of year are in black and orange wrappers.

Traditionally, Halloween is always celebrated after sunset. The blackness of the night cloaks the revelers and hides their misdeeds or tricks if they don’t receive any treats.

Walking into any retail store that carries Halloween costumes, candy, or decorations, you will find masses of black and orange items. You know that it’s Halloween time, because the distinctive color combination is only used for this season. Not too many people use this color combination for their house or clothing!

The exact origin of Halloween colors is unknown but we all know that with practice and use, the uncommon becomes commonplace.

My Thrift Trip-- Teen Challenge East Dublin Ga

Monday, October 19, 2015

I was recently passing through Dublin Ga. and decided to check out the thrift store scene,
By mistake as I was trying to find the GoodWill Store, I made a series of wrong turns and happened up on Teen Challenge Thrift Store. I shopped there got a few houseware pieces cheap for brand new bowls and cups. The proceeds of the store benefit kids who need special assistance. I love shopping when tne funds help benefit a good cause .

Goodwill Does Good Work

One of my thrifting spots is Goodwill. I always find great household and clothing items at any Goodwill store that I happen to drop by. Goodwill's mission is to help train people for the workforce. Our donations make that possible. Goodwill hosts a few major fundraisers each year. I love the idea that Goodwill host at least two major job fairs in central Ga. each year. Do not leave Goodwill off your list of thrift shops. They support the "cause" of helping people become self-sufficient and employable!

ABBA HOUSE- Developes Women's Skills

Monday, October 12, 2015

Downtown Perry Thrift Store Abba House

I recently traveled to Perry to check out ABBA House Thrift store. I like the mission and purpose behind this store. I arrived there in a large parking lot and a huge store. Inside I found a massive amount of store space, there was a lot of  everything in ABBA HOUSE Thrift. The store was well organized and laid out very neatly. I found all the ladies and girls to be very friendly. There was a lot of furniture and a MAN CAVE area of men's clothing cute little children's section of all things for kids!

Developing Leadership Skills through Retail Management

At Abba House, the primary goal of every project and industry is the ultimate benefit to the ladies in the program. Although the sales from the Thrift Stores allow us to keep tuition at an extremely low rate, the purpose of the Thrift Store far exceeds a way to generate income. While in the program at Abba House, the ladies will hold various positions of leadership and obtain countless real world job skills. The Thrift Stores are structured in such a way that ladies are accountable for different departments and the ladies within those departments. The ladies learn the value of a hard day’s work and how to submit to authority in a job setting.
When you visit our stores, you’ll see that the ladies are also learning how to take pride in their work and reap the rewards of a job well done. The ladies are responsible for everything in the stores, from the merchandise on the floor to the way it’s displayed, to the atmosphere the customers experience when they shop with us.

IN THEIR OWN WORDS: ABBA HOUSE November marked the official launch of Abba House Perry, as four women, two student leaders and Chris Sharp moved to Perry to become the initial core leadership group for many women who will come there to find peace. We opened the Perry AbbaHouse Thrift Store .Our thrift stores provide about 50 percent of our revenue and are the training tool to equip women with leadership and job skills as well as a good work ethic.
In 2014 Abba House opened a new location for the Perry Thrift Store, located in downtown Perry. This location has more than 25,000 square feet of sales floor.

Yoplait Supports the Breast Cancer Fight

Saturday, October 10, 2015

                  Friends in the Fight

Several months ago I tried the Yoplait Greek Yogurt is only 100 calories and high in protein content . I tried various flavors and fell in love with strawberry flavor. I  eat it twice a day sometimes adding  cranberries and walnuts to give it the consistency of a parfait. I  eventually took a minute or read the peel off lid and saw that Yoplait would donate to breast cancer research f I took,time to go on their website and enter the code from the lid! 

After more research I learned that:
Since 1997, Yoplait and General Mills has donated more than $35 million to the cause through the Friends in the Fight program, Race for the Cure and other initiatives.
Over fifteen years ago, an employee at our Carson City, California, Yoplait plant lost a family member to cancer and helped organize the plant’s support for a local cancer race. The goal of Save Lids to Save Lives is to support the millions of people who have been impacted by breast cancer by raising awareness and funding to fight the disease.
Breast cancer statistics continue to be staggering. One in eight women in the United States will develop breast cancer in her lifetime, and for the United States in 2012, more than 250,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women (source: American Cancer Society).
Find out how you can join General Mills in making a difference in the fight against breast cancer at
