Sunday Encouragement-Happy Easter!

Happy Easter friends! If you’re looking for the Easter bunny, you won’t find him here. There are no colored eggs, no Easter baskets or Easter candy.

Although all of that is cute and fun, Easter is not about the bunny. Easter is all about Jesus.

Sunday Encouragement-Happy Easter!
My prayer for us today is that we will celebrate the true meaning of Easter. He is worthy of our praise!

 

If you have stopped by and you don’t know Jesus, I would be honored to share him with you. You can email me at cyndispivey(at)gmail(dot)com.

Have a blessed Easter Sunday!!

Are Pantyhose In or Out of Style?

Are Pantyhose In or Out of Style?

Are Pantyhose In or Out of Style?

With Easter just a few days away, and many of us will be wearing dresses to church, I thought we would talk about pantyhose. Plus, I get a lot of emails asking “should I wear pantyhose?”

First, if your legs look good without pantyhose, don’t wear them. Natural legs are always “in”.

Here’s the way I see it. 

>Pantyhose are not in style but if you feel your legs look better with them, then wear them.

>Age definitely seems to be a factor on whether you’ll wear them or not. Some of you are in the age group that have grown up wearing pantyhose and you have no problem with them.

>But there are those of us (myself included) that didn’t grow up wearing them a lot so we don’t wear them. At this time, I don’t own a pair of pantyhose.

>Self tanners help legs look better and I use Sun Labs all the time.

>Another option is Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs. This stuff is amazing and gets great reviews! It’s like putting on a pair of hose with out the hose.

It also covers up a lot of imperfections on your legs. (I have purchased it at CVS Pharmacy and it’s with the Sally Hansen products not in the tanning section.)

If you feel you need to wear pantyhose, here are my tips on wearing them.

1. Do NOT wear suntan pantyhose. Most women don’t have that color leg so it looks awkward. Wear a sheer or barely there color.

2. Do not wear the high gloss or shiny pantyhose.

3. Open-toed shoes with pantyhose are a definite NO.

4. Purchase a good brand such as Calvin Klein, Donna Karen, Pretty Polly etc. These can all be found at Macy’s.

5. Make sure whatever you put on your legs is subtle and sophisticated. You want it to meld into your outfit, not scream for attention.

So what do you think? Do you wear pantyhose?? Did this post answer your questions?

What I Wore-Fashion for Women Over 40

Happy Hump Day! I’m sharing some fashion for women over 40 and my new obsession with Stella & Dot.

I blame my obsession on Shaeffer from Pinterest Told Me To. You’ve been to her blog, right? I can hardly keep up with all of her cute outfits!

I saw this picture of her neutral blazer and the gold necklace. At that moment, I felt like angels surrounded me singing the Hallelujah Chorus!

Why? Because that necklace was exactly what I had been looking for! It was pretty and unique and it can be worn with half of my wardrobe.

Soooooo, I copied her necklace. I guess I could call it, Shaeffer Told Me To. :-)   Anyway, I’m giddy over it, it doesn’t take much does it?

I recently received this crew neck layered sweater from Stitch Fix and the gold necklace was just what it needed.

Do you remember a few weeks ago, I hosted a Matilda Jane party? This is the top and tank top I ordered. I love it!

 So a couple of random things I’ll share with you~~

  • I am waaay overdo for a cut and color. I will be getting it done asap.
  • I took these pictures after I had my eyes dilated at my eye appointment. I couldn’t see well but I managed to get some pictures, blurry eyed and all.
  • I did find out my eyes are worse than they were last year. Woo hoo! I’m trying to wear contacts AGAIN, we’ll see!

Have you ever had your eyes dilated? It’s a weird feeling isn’t it?

Golden Tote Clothing Review

I’m excited to share something new with you today! For those of you who have been hesitant to try Stitch Fix, this might be a fun alternative, it’s called Golden Tote.

What is a Golden Tote? Golden Tote is a fun way to shop! It’s the ultimate “Surprise Grab Bag” filled with clothing and accessories for women.

Golden Tote Clothing Review

Golden Tote works with carefully selected fashion brands. They curate an eclectic assortment of treasures and package them all up in a custom tote bag for one amazing price.

Think of them as your personal shoppers, stylists, and designers that are scoring you some major fashion finds for an incredible price.

Here’s how it works:

The first Monday of each month they launch TWO sales. One priced at $49, the other at $149. You can log in to your account pick one item (the $49 tote) or two items (the $149 tote).

But, it doesn’t end there – after filling out a customized style profile about your likes, dislikes, shape, and size – they HAND PICK 1-2 or 3-5 more items to go in your tote that matches your preferences.

Golden Tote Clothing Review

Doesn’t that sound awesome? I’ll be honest I was a little skeptical at first. Would I like it? But I was pleasantly surprised! I loved everything they sent me.

I picked the $149 tote and picked these two items from their boutique. I didn’t get a picture of me wearing them but these are the items. I thought the long dress would be great for vacation.

Now for the fun part, I got these five shirts as a surprise!

This striped top-love it!

This has a bohemian feel and I wouldn’t have picked this out if I were shopping, but I really like it.

This is a casual lace shirt and they also sent me the black tank underneath it. I like both of these items!

They also sent me this tank top. I will be wearing this a lot this summer!

The back of the tank top looks like this, I love the detail.

Spring Makeover by Bobbi Brown

A few weeks ago I shared with you about my spring makeover using Bobbi Brown makeup. After winter, I’m always ready for some makeup changes.

I was also running low on my concealer so I decided to give Bobbi Brown concealer a try.

Spring Makeover by Bobbi Brown

I’ve had a makeover using this makeup before but it’s been several years. I had forgotten how much I love it!

As I was having the makeover the young lady wrote down all the makeup she used so when I go back, I can pick up some more of the makeup I liked. I didn’t have the money to purchase everything!

Spring Makeover by Bobbi Brown

I decided to stick with the items I needed except for the brightening finishing powder. I’ve never used the brightening finishing powder before but I liked it so much, I decided to purchase it. Here’s what I bought:

spring makeover

  • Creamy Concealer Kit-Concealer instantly covers and brightens dark circles. Fuss-free pressed powder sets concealer for long-lasting wear.
  • Brightening Finishing Powder-A brightening pick-me-up for skin – this all-over powder instantly illuminates and gives skin a healthy-looking glow.
  • Corrector-A wakeup call for tired eyes. Neutralizes under-eye darkness and is designed to be used before creamy concealer.
  • Blush-Glides on smooth and is long lasting. I’m using the color “Blushed”.
  • Ink Eyeliner-With an improved formula and felt tip, this easy to use pen-style liner delivers the blackest black, perfect-every-time, line.

I have tried every concealer and corrector out there (well maybe not all of them, but I have tried a lot of them!) and I have to say Bobbi Brown corrector and concealer are some of the best I’ve ever tried.

The corrector helps cover up my dark circles and the concealer brightens my under eye area. I set it with the pressed powder and it lasts all day. I’m hooked!

I didn’t get a picture the day of my makeover, but I’ve been using it, and I like it.

Spring Makeover by Bobbi Brown

Have you ever had a makeover with Bobbi Brown makeup? Or have you had one with another brand of makeup? 

Beauty For the Heart~~Preparing our hearts for Easter:

Six days before Passover, Jesus entered Bethany where Lazarus, so recently raised from the dead, was living. Lazarus and his sisters invited Jesus to dinner at their home. Martha served. Lazarus was one of those sitting at the table with them. Mary came in with a jar of very expensive aromatic oils, anointed and massaged Jesus’ feet, and then wiped them with her hair. The fragrance of the oils filled the house.

Judas Iscariot, one of his disciples, even then getting ready to betray him, said, “Why wasn’t this oil sold and the money given to the poor? It would have easily brought three hundred silver pieces.” He said this not because he cared two cents about the poor but because he was a thief. He was in charge of their common funds, but also embezzled them.

Jesus said, “Let her alone. She’s anticipating and honoring the day of my burial. You always have the poor with you. You don’t always have me.” John 12:1-8 (MSG)

Have a blessed day!
