The Daily: April 18th, 2022

As expected, the Winter returned for Easter Weekend. Temps dropped and the rain came off and on. The sound of aster this year was rain on canvas as we were holding most things out doors. which is fine. Well for me anyway. I am feeling a little bit stuffy and puffy with a weather change headache today, but i think several others left with the starts of head colds.

I would like to thank Ever Pretty for a lovely Easter dress that was not too heavy for Spring, but with the long skirt and lining, kept me warm throughout the events. I would have been quite frankly miserable if it hadn’t been for that long skirt. If you are preparing for a wedding, Ever Pretty’s <a href="http://<a target="_blank" href="https://shareasale.com/r.cfm?b=2004714&u=2299402&m=65698&urllink=&afftrack="><img src="https://static.shareasale.com/image/65698/pc.jpg&quot; border="0" />bridal sale is still going on. It ends April 20th though.

While I love their dresses for the symphony and other outings, they do amazing wedding dresses and bridesmaids gowns. I’ll link the sale below for those interested. They have both great quality and affordability going for them so I highly recommend them.

This past weekend was an amazing event for me and mine. It has been several years since I have seen many of those attending and even with the social distancing it was nice to catch up in person. And to see more than the head and shoulders of the people I was talking to. Video calls only go so far. Don’t get me wrong I love them, but it is a different sort of communication from in person chats.

Today is rainy and I am stuffy with itchy watery eyes. I thought about makeup, but then I had a bout of sneezing with watery eyes that made me spend several moments with my box of Kleenex and I realized that attempt at makeup would merely be a farce. And so I skipped it. I may sort through my masks and find something soothing and depuffing for an afternoon facemask at my desk, but today was not a day for makeup. Some days are just like that.

But as for me, since I took a long weekend, I need to pop an allergy tablet and get back to work. I enjoyed the fun and family of the three day Easter Weekend but it does leave me scrambling to catch up. So nose blown, and water eyes wiped, it is time for me to get back to work. I hope everyone had a fantastic Easter.

The Daily: January 27th, 2022

Good afternoon my darlings. Today has been a strange day. I didn’t end up walking because my legs were just not happy with me for all the extra walking I put in earlier this week. I think I might have worked myself out a bit.

I did have a lot of running around to do today. Last week I put off as many errands as I could because the weather was not the sort I wanted to drive around town in. Plus a lot of things were closed because shop owners didn’t want their employees driving around in that sort of weather either.

I respect that.

However, temps have been dropping today and it looks like snow overnight with mixed rain, sleet and snow tomorrow, so I decided errands should best be done today. So around town I went. When I finished my needed errands I popped into the second hand shop to see what they had. Mostly just to browse because I was feeling virtuous about all the errands and felt like I could spend some time just meandering if I wanted. So my intent was to just stroll and look.. Maybe pick up a ring from their large collection. For some reason this seems to be the store where people donate a lot of costume jewelry. I love finding funky rings there.

Today it wasn’t a ring i found, but a cape. A red wool cape to be exact. And it fits me perfectly. I’ll be taking it to the dry cleaners with the few other things we have that need to go, but I just had to share the fabulousness with you.

Tell me that is not a fabulous red cape. I am ridiculously excited about this and I have to say that I will be building my Valentine’s Day outfit around the cape. It also reminded me that I needed to start preparing for Valentine’s Day. I don’t know if you are doing your own prep work for the day, but even when on my own I always used this as an excuse to buy myself a new set of pretty undies. Even if I know no one but me will see them, I just have a weakness for fabulous undergarments. As strange as it sounds, I always feel more confident when I am wearing pretty underwear. In case you haven’t seen them yet, The Underclub has just released new sets for Valentine’s Day. They have an entire Plus sized collection.

Plus Size All Black Lingerie Box

I love my monthly subscription with them and I absolutely adore the fact that their sizes range from XS to XXXL. The inclusivity makes me happy, but so does the underwear. They are just good quality pieces. And the fact that they actually released a plus sized collection for valentines day, just makes me so happy. I encourage all of you to check them out. I’ll put the links below.

So that gives me outer wear and underwear for Valentines day. Now I just need to figure out the bits between and then figure out if my babydoll has a homemade meal request or if we are going to get food from elsewhere. It seems like there is a lot of time, but Valentine’s day is creeping up. And for me February is always a jam packed month This one looks to be no exception. So if I can square everything away early, I’ll be a happy camper.

Today alas there was no makeup. I worked at my desk and then put a mask on to run around town. To be honest when I know I am going to be wearing a mask for the better part of a day, I only slap on a little mascara. Often I’ll add a lip mask to wear under the face mask, but that’s about it. Today I remembered the lip mask but forgot the mascara. It was not my most glamorous day. Which is perhaps why the fates decided I needed a cape. A reminder to be more fabulous. I suppose I should admit that tonight I will be going through my lipsticks and seeing which lipstick pairs best with this cape. I have several reds I like wearing, but I think it will either have to match or be a completely neutral shade. It’s just a little bit of Thursday night fin for me.
