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. Or you may take advantage of the “Buy 2 get your 3rd FREE” special. This special applies to any combination of items storewide, just add 3 items to your cart and the discount will be applied
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.

I Have Lashes

What a week! The littles were off the charts this week. I wonder if it was the full moon? Someone mentioned the lunar eclipse that's coming. Does that affect moods and such too? The baby wasn't even her usual sunshiny self!

I realized on Wednesday that the start of Yoga Teacher Training was only a month away! Yikes! Life is about to get busier yet! Before we know it the holidays will be here….

We will be off to Lancaster, Pennsylvania shortly to shop the outlets for back to school clothes for Noah and Miss Quinn. First I am going to attend my usual meeting of the #saturday7amsocialclub.

My friend Rosie from The Midlife Aesthetic posted a challenge (?) yesterday on Facebook and Instagram. Her challenge was to sit down and plan a "you" weekend. Nothing but you and what you want to do! Wow! I wish we hadn't already planned our weekend. This will be on my list to do, though. If you haven't read Rosie's blog you should check it out. What is your ideal "you" weekend? What would you do, just for you, if you could?

A few weeks ago I told you I had signed on with Rodan+Fields and shared my beginning experience with using Lash Boost. Today I am sharing my results so far. Yesterday was four weeks in.

As you can see my lashes are getting longer and thicker. You can actually see my bottom lashes! I even put mascara on the bottom yesterday! I have never been able to do that!

The picture below is from day one.

The area circled is an actual bald spot in my lashes.

This next picture was yesterday morning.

You can see there are lashes growing in the bald spot, you can see bottom lashes in general! Look how much thicker the top is too!

Below is with mascara on the bottom. I only use one coat of mascara, ever.

My selfies still look like mug shots, lol, but there are lashes on the bottom that I can put mascara on and not accentuate that bald spot (it's on its way out)! My left eye still has to catch up with the right but it's on its way! If you have thin, sparse lashes you really need to try Lash Boost. It typically takes 6-8 weeks to see results.

I have also been using the Redefine regimen. My "eleven" lines (the lines on your forehead, between your eyes) have diminished considerably and my skin overall is tighter! Ladies (and gentlemen) these products do work! If you've been thinking about trying them, don't hesitate. With a 60 day money back guarantee you have nothing to lose. If you don't know where to start go to my website and take the solutions tool. That will help you determine the regimen that's right for you.

It may seem as if I've been talking a lot about Rodan+Fields lately. Maybe. I am becoming more and more passionate about the products and opportunity. This is the first product that I have been able to use a night cream from and not break out!

We all have skin and are aging and so is every one we know. That isn't going to change. Everyone needs good skin care!

If you've been thinking about signing up as a consultant this weekend is a great time. The business is growing and great things are happening. If you decide to join me this weekend you will receive three of the new travel size Redefine regimens and a Lash Boost with the purchase of a kit. To become a consultant go to http://jearlingbencivenni.myrandf.biz and sign up. This is only good through tomorrow night.


Lash Boost is currently sold out. I can't even buy a new supply right now😲and I don't plan to be without it! If you only want Lash Boost send me a message and get on my VIP list. I will let you know when it's back in stock. We are hoping by mid month, which is almost here!

There are three ways to order.

If you just want to try the products and not commit, you can order as a retail customer. That's the most expensive way. Next Friday 8/18  I will be placing a bulk order; if there is a product you would like to try message or email me at grandma2glamma@gmail.com and I will order it for you at my cost and ship it to you.

Why Direct Sales

Why not

July was a crazy month! A good crazy, but crazy nonetheless. The weather was the hottest I can remember for such a long stretch. I hit some new milestones with my weight lifting (more to come). It was busy with Plunder and the Christmas in July specials along with the sign up incentive; then I decided it was time to get on board and sign up with Rodan + Fields. Somedays I wasn’t sure if I was coming, going, or meeting myself in the middle! But it is all good!

Since I have been telling people about my businesses and promoting them; I have had a couple of people ask recently “Why have you gone into direct sales” or started with a particular company? “Aren’t these things just a scheme”? Maybe some are. I’m sure there are still some sketchy organizations out there. The companies I am involved with are not. But why? Well, why not?

These types of businesses have been around forever; for example the first two that come to mind are Avon and Mary Kay and no one bats an eyelash about purchasing from them. Yes, these are the same types of companies and there’s nothing wrong with them, whether you are a customer or a consultant/business owner.

For those who don’t know my story; I left my last job, of eight years, almost six years ago to take care of my new grandson; baby Noah. That was scary. It was not an easy decision on many fronts and very easy in others. I not only gave up a paycheck (which is never easy whether you “need” it or not). I also gave up grown-up socialization and interaction. I often think of myself as an introvert, but I’m not sure that is completely accurate. I need to be with people at times.

That little boy I left that job for (it was a good move) has now started school full-time. And his sister who came along two years later is on her way. More littles have come along since, for me to take care of, and in another five or six years they too will be “off to school”. I will no longer have that purpose. BUT I will be older than I am now, approaching 60!!!! After essentially raising a second family, Do I want to go out and look for another job? Work for someone else after all that time? NO!!! On top of that “The Man” will approaching “retirement” age (heaven help me, maybe I should rethink this, lol). So now seemed the perfect time to start working for me. I have time to work and grow my businesses so that when I no longer have the littles to take care I will not be starting from scratch! If I want to pack up and go somewhere, I can work from anywhere there is internet. I can choose to work when I want from where I want. I won’t need to work on someone else’s time schedule. I won’t need to put in a request and get “permission” to take a few days off!

Now when I started out my first train of thought was to get the products I purchased and use at the best price possible. I knew about the business opportunity of course but that wasn’t my first thought. As time went by it just made sense. Maybe you are on the fence? If so, I’d say go for it! If you purchase and use the product you really don’t have anything to lose.

I am building my businesses with three companies.

Legging Army, which I haven’t mentioned in a few months (it’s summer and while folks are still buying leggings my brain hasn’t been able to wrap my head around that in this heat). We have come out with a new line of maxi skirts, that I will be showing you here soon. In the meantime you can go to the website and click shop, then skirts and shorts to see them. Last night there was a new restock, so you’ll need to hurry to get the best selection! It’s crazy how fast they fly off the shelves!

Plunder, has been such a blessing. I have met and made some new friends and Plunder sisters that I hope to meet in person soon. The sisterhood of Plunder is like no other I’ve ever seen. For those who don’t know, Plunder is a Christian based company, woman owned and debt free. You can go to the website, click on “our story” and read about our founder Hillary and the company. I think the story will inspire you. I feel I was lead to to Plunder for a reason. I’m not completely sure why, but I know there is a reason; beyond jewelry, beyond the business.

Rodan+Fields, has a sisterhood that’s right up there with Plunder. I am looking forward to making new friends there too! I’ve told you about Lash Boost which is what drew my interest to R+F but the skin care is bar none the best I’ve tried, and I’ve been using skin care products for quite a while!

This is a lot to take on, in a short period of time, but like I said; I have time to work and grow and set myself up for the next chapter/season of my life.

If you’ve been thinking of going into business for yourself, getting the best possible price for products you love, or just having a bit of a hobby, and think one of these companies would be a good fit for you; email me at grandma2glamma@gmail.com. If you want to know more about the Rodan+Fields business you can join me on a FREE zoom call tonight at 9pm EST. Zoom is a free app that you can put on your device then just dial in at 9pm with the number 736 578 7052 and hit “join a meeting”. You can just listen in or ask any questions you may have!

This bracelet was part of the April Plunder Posse. I think it came at the right time for me! That’s what I’m doing! If you don’t know, the Plunder Posse is a subscription much like Ipsy, Glam Box, Graze, and such. For $25 per month (tax and shipping included) you receive 1-3 pieces of jewelry. There are no minimums, you can cancel and restart any time. If you have any questions, email or message me.
