Are You Ready For Some Football 🏈

TGIF! Who’s ready for the weekend? Do you have plans? I’m not quite sure what everyone around here is doing. “The Man” will work this weekend and I will catch up with the #Saturday7amsocialclub and then head to the gym, and my torture (oops) training session with Jeff. As of right now the weather looks like it will be beautiful, hopefully I can keep “The Man” away from Sam’s, lol! The nice weather weekends are sure to be ending soon.

What a couple of weeks this has been! A short week last week, because of the holiday. A really long week because of other events that occurred. School for the grand littles started back uneventfully and they seem happy (for the moment) to be back in a routine. This was the first week of fully being into the new “regular” routine and the fun has started, lol!

If that wasn’t enough, I got up last Tuesday, the day after the holiday, and started getting ready to pay some bills. I logged into our checking account to find the balance was not correct….yes, our account had been hacked! It was done on “The Mans” card. No surprise there. He thinks that card is the best thing ever…..What a mess to deal with…..we spent hours dealing with it with the bank on Tuesday, then waiting for the charge to be reversed. Fortunately I was still able to take care of what needed to be paid, they didn’t wipe out the balance, but it wasn’t just a couple of dollars either! Let me tell you, it’s was a very emotional thing. The feeling of being violated. Is it going to happen again? Just wanting to go to the bank and withdraw whatever is there. If you’ve missed hearing from me much of last week, that’s why; along with getting ready for Yoga Teacher Training-YTT. I was not able to focus on writing much. I tried but nothing made much sense. This week hasn’t been much better in that department. You may have noticed I haven’t posted on my regular schedule. I have taken the time to digest and reflect from the studies of the YTT weekend. There is a lot, but I am getting my head around it and working out a plan for my homework.

Over the past couple of weekends Collegiate and Professional football has started. The world is going to be going crazy for the next few months, lol!  I’m really not a football fan, lol, but I decided to have a little fun with the start of football season.

My Florida State Seminoles played their first game the Saturday before the holiday (it was not pretty)….Most Floridians are either camp Seminoles

or camp Gators. There is FSU (Florida State) or UF (University of Florida). Occasionally you will find someone who is a Miami fan, but not often.

(BTW, I did not make a gators necklace). I borrowed the picture from one of my Plunder sisters Robyn, who happens to be a gator fan. I still like her, lol!

We have both in our family. It’s a fun rivalry! I am a gator fan (of sorts) one game a year, when they play the Georgia bulldogs, hahaha! After that it’s back to business as usual, lol! If that’s not enough living here in Baltimore I’m slap in the middle of ravens fans. Well I am a rebel and will wear my Jacksonville Jaguars shirt!

I must support the “hometown” team, even if they haven’t played great in a loooooong time, and even though I really could care less about football. BTW, they won their first game….hope they can keep that up! Are you a football fan?

A couple of weeks ago, Plunder came out with a line called Plunder Prep. You can put together a necklace to support your favorite team and sport! So I had to make up my FSU and Jaguars Plunder Prep Necklaces!! I was even nice and adapted some a bit for the ravens fans and came up with this on the fly!

Here are the current options that are available to make your own Plunder Prep necklace. You can support you local high school, college, rec council or professional team. As you can see, there are charms for several sports. More tassel colors and charms are in the works.

If you would like to support your team, get a gift for the sports fan in your life that has “everything”, or get that new college a unique gift to support their new school,  log onto my website, go to shop, select a party with my name in it, scroll to the Plunder Prep tab and design your own. For the remainder of September I am offering a free piece of Plunder Jewelry, from me, for ANY order over $75.00 (excluding tax and shipping). Message me or email me at grandma2glamma@gmail.com if you need help or have any questions.

Now I couldn’t leave baseball out so I made one for my Orioles too. I much prefer baseball to football! What about you?

Are you a baseball or football fan or both? What are your favorite teams? Do you go to the games or just watch from the comfort of home? If I’m going to watch football, I would rather be home. When we first moved to Maryland we went to a Jaguars/Ravens game….It was COLD!!!! I do not like  football and certainly don’t want to freeze my tush off to watch it! Baseball I don’t mind going to watch. The weather is usually much more accommodating.

Woo Hoo! It’s Friday! That means it’s time for Fashion Friday and another week has coming to a close. I have been given a rare gift for today. A “me” day! Whatever am I going to do with myself? And it’s a holiday weekend.! Did I hit the jackpot or what? So far, I have planned a phone call with my Plunder sister Patti (Patti is a new blogger, you can find her at 55isfine.com, check out her blog and subscribe) to pick her brain. Patti, is in Texas, that’s what’s one of the great things about my business(es) I have made friends with some wonderful ladies all over the US! I am also expecting a fun, exciting Plunder delivery today. I hope to be able to get some blog photos shot this weekend so that I can share them with you. I am planning some serious fun and ribbing….uh oh, watch out! Maybe I will take the camera out somewhere and see if I can master taking my own photos, or at least making them look somewhat decent.

Do you have any plans for your long weekend? Ours might be weather dependent. Right now it looks like starting tonight into tomorrow it will be all rain, with fall like temperatures. I just keep singing “Rain is a good thing”. What else can you do? It is definitely fall-like weather today. Once I can acclimate I will really be happy. I will try not to make the mistake I made in the spring and switch my clothes out too soon.

Facebook reminded me, this morning, that it was six years ago today that I left my job of eight years to begin taking care of my little Noah. Maybe, it’s fitting that today is my “me” day!

Today I am showing a couple of different looks with the same blouse and including the jeans I showed you earlier in the week.

Here I have styled with a denim skirt. Believe it or not, this is the first denim skirt I have ever owned. That’s about as crazy as only getting my first denim jacket this year! I told you about that here.

We shot these photos when we were shooting for my Covered Perfectly review the other week. If you missed that post, you can find it here. My daughter was the photographer (have to give her a plug)!

 

Look Ma no hands!

Remember my daughter and her ideas of me getting on ledges? Yeah, she didn’t give that idea up. Ok, this wasn’t really very high, in fact calling it a ledge is a stretch, but I had to give her a raft of stuff about it.

The top is from White House Black Market. It is a chiffon fabric and most of the flowers are embroidered. The skirt is from Levi. You have seen the sandals a few times this year. They are by Italian Shoemakers and came from DSW a couple of years ago.

You may have noticed these photos aren’t the best. This is a lesson, of sorts, on lighting. It was definitely not good in this spot for photos at that time of day. Sometimes you don’t know that until you go to view them. I tried to work with them some, but wasn’t able to help them much. My photography/editing skills are a “work in progress”.

Here is the same blouse with the jeans I wore to the fair also from White House Black Market, and the same shoes. Like I said these may very well be my new favorite jeans.

 

The light is much better for these photos, but it is still not the “best”. These were also taken with my phone vs the camera.

My three happy things for Thursday were:

1. Snuggles with Miss Quinn in the morning

2. A great yoga practice

3. Tomorrow is Friday

Let me know how you are coming with listing your happy things each day.

I haven’t talked to much about Legging Army over the summer, because most of us don’t want to think about leggings in the summer. But today through Monday we are having a summer blow-out special.

EVERYTHING on the side is 10% off. We are getting ready to load up the fall/winter line. Head over and check it out, but don’t wait too long, these things go fast, especially the more “graphic” prints.

Peek-A-Boo

It’s Friday, again, a new weekend with new possibilities. New things to explore and get into! Have you made plans yet?

I have decided to start dedicating Friday’s blog post to fashion, that’s not to say there won’t be a fashion post on other days, but I like the idea of “Fashion Friday”. I am borrowing that idea from my friend and fellow blogger Amy Kennedy over at http://www.yourfavoritechapter.com. If you don’t already follow Amy, you should head over, check out her blog, and subscribe.

Today I am sharing my review of the Covered Perfectly Sexy Peek A Boo top. I gave you a sneak peek of this top Tuesday. Did you know, Covered Perfectly is Made in the USA, and is a fairly new, woman owned small business? When Pauline, the owner, of Covered Perfectly asked me if I’d like to do another “official” review for her, I was excited to do so.

DISCLAIMER: This is a sponsored post. What that means is: I was provided the product for review. If you click on the links in the post and make a purchase, I may make a small commission at no additional cost to you.

I chose the Peek A Boo in Maroon, specifically for the cut outs on the arms and the color (you may know I consider burgundy, wine, maroon my “signature” color). I have not been able to fully jump on the cold shoulder band wagon. I like the look, I like the look on others, but so far I have only found one I like on me. And I don’t wear that very often. For me they aren’t comfortable. And by that I mean the over all fit. I don’t mind the openness of the shoulders, they just don’t seem to “feel” right to me.

The Peek A Boo offers that flirty, open shoulder look and shows a bit of arm, but has more coverage than a regular cold shoulder top. It’s like a perfect union of cold shoulder meets regular sleeves. So, if you are like me and just not a cold shoulder top girl the Peek A Boo may be the perfect alternative for you too!

Are you a fan of the cold shoulder look? If so, Covered Perfectly has you covered there too! And after wearing the Peek A Boo and loving it, I may have to give one a try.

The Sexy Peek A Boo is an A-line cut so it flows and skims your body without accentuating any lumps, bumps, and jiggly wiggly bits you might have. I know I have plenty of those. The Peek A Boo is made from the MicroModal fabric (as are most Covered Perfectly tops) which has great breathability in the heat (or when you may be having your own “personal summer” moments) and you could practically sleep in it and get up and go (see Tuesday’s post for my antics before these photos were taken). They are great to wear while traveling and I always make sure to pack a Covered Perfectly Simple Comfort top when I travel for that reason. I know I can just grab it from the suitcase, change, and go when I get to my destination; if I need to.

If you are a regular follower of the blog, you likely know I am short. I can only claim to be 5′ tall on a 80’s hair day and even then it’s iffy. Although the Covered Perfectly tops do not come in a petite length, they are not too long for me. As you can see they cover my front and rear just enough, but not too much. I am wearing it here with white “pull-on” skinny jeans/jeggings, but I would be able to wear it comfortably with regular jeans, leggings or a dressier pant too. The scoop neckline is perfect for accessorizing and you can see different looks for that here. So ladies, if you are on the petite side, don’t be afraid to try a Covered Perfectly Top. If you are taller they will, obviously, be a bit shorter on you.

What do you think about this fun, fashionable, and Sexy Peek A Boo? I really want to know.

Neutrals With A Pop of Color

TGIF! We have made it to the weekend! We have nothing planned around here, at the moment, but that is always subject to change. It is “The Mans” Saturday to work so that will likely limit what we decide to do. I imagine we will stay fairly close to home after traveling last weekend. Maybe I can plan that “me” weekend I told you about last week! Or maybe I already have. My yoga teacher training starts in three weeks. YIKES! For one weekend a month for the next nine months I will be doing nothing but something for me. Apparently I should expect it to be quite intense and reentry into regular life may be challenging. It’s so exciting and scary! Do y’all have anything exciting planned? Please share.

I have already told you a bit about our trip to the outlets last weekend. Our school shopping was a success. We were not quite sure how the day would pan out as the weather was subject (according to the powers that be) to be pretty iffy. Thunderstorms were called for at home and there. It actually turned out to be a beautiful day after a few early morning showers; until we were about halfway home. Then the bottom fell out for quite a ways!

I had planned on getting some pictures for the blog and managed a few, but like I told you earlier I was not happy with them. We didn’t take the camera because we didn’t want to be “bothered” with it. I have the iPhone7 and the camera is supposed to be the best thing ever. Maybe more practice is needed.

We did find a great old covered bridge to use for the pictures. It is still used by Amish for taking buggy tours over.

Even though rain/storms were called for the temperature was still supposed to be in the 80s, I wanted to be cool and comfortable, but still look stylish and put together.

I decided on a tank top and maxi skirt.

This tank is the SIMPLE SCOOP NECK TANK in gray from Covered Perfectly. It wears beautifully, the straps are wide enough that you don’t have to worry about your other straps showing, and like other Covered Perfectly tops it just skims and flows over your body. The MicroModal fabric is the best. We took these photos on the way home and after traveling and shopping all day. It wasn’t wrinkled and stayed cool, even in the heat and humidity. I am wearing a small. Did you know Covered Perfectly is made right here in the USA? I paired it with a maxi skirt from Legging Army, this pattern is called Picture Perfect. I haven’t mentioned the Legging Army maxis before, because as fast as they were launched they were selling out. I couldn’t write fast enough, lol! This is the first one I’ve gotten. There are a variety of patterns. I will be getting more. Several of the maxi styles are on sale (this one included) along with shorts, and athletic wear; while they last.

Remember as a Grandma to Glamma blog reader you get 20% OFF on up to two items when you shop at Covered Perfectly! Use the discount code GG20 when you check out at Covered Perfectly. There are several styles to choose from, and the discount will apply on up to two items.

automatically. Only one of the discounts will work. Start shopping!

I wore the August Plunder Posse for a pop of color against the neutral pallet of the gray. Even though there are several colors in the skirt they are all neutrals. The burgundy of the necklace is a perfect color with gray. At least in my opinion. It doesn’t hurt that it’s my “signature” color. The discs in the necklace and earrings work back to the circle patterns in the skirt. It’s was almost as if they were made for each other! The bracelets are the magnetic bling bracelets that I’ve showed you before. I wore Tina, which is a pinky/purple color. It was one of the Mother’s Day specials and is no longer available. The black one is called Ezra and the other one is Flynn which has iridescent stones.

If you aren’t familiar with the Plunder Posse it is a jewelry subscription, much like Ipsy, Birch Box, Graze, etc; where for $25 per month including tax and shipping you receive 1-3 pieces of Plunder Jewelry that is not in the catalog. Now is a great time to sign up because it’s the middle of the month. That allows you to see in advance what that months selection is and if you don’t like it you can cancel and sign back up the next month or even get it and give as a gift. Think Secret Sisters, Secret Santa’s, and Teachers gifts! You could have the perfect unique gift for someone, that doesn’t break the bank.

My daughter, Amanda, was doing the picture taking, and decided I should climb up on a ledge….now y’all know I’m short, right? So it was quite a feat for me to get up there. It may not look too high from the inside, but when you aren’t very tall…..and in a skirt…..it was comical!

Have I told you I have a fear of heights too?

Can you believe she wanted me to stand on the narrow part of the ledge, in front of the red part of the bridge?

I did not. It wasn’t much bigger than my feet, and I have small feet. That was a long way down. I may be half crazy, but not totally, lol.

Some details inside the bridge

Have you ever heard the saying opportunity doesn’t come knocking at your door, you have to go find it? If you are in Australia or know someone in Australia; opportunity is knocking on your door! Rodan+Fields the number one skin care line in the US and the fastest growing skin care line in Canada (after only ONE year) is set to launch in Australia in September.

If you have been looking for a business opportunity this is an exciting time! You can get in right from the start. There is still time to pre enroll, but only until the end of August. I would love to have you join me in this business. If you are wondering if this opportunity may be for you; email me at grandma2glamma@gmail.com for more information. We can also set up a free zoom call to help you get your questions answered.
