Monday Fun...Simply Vera Wang...Fashion Flash...Gift Idea!

For those who celebrate Christmas, I am sure you are on fast burners...but take a few minutes and enjoy some fashion, beauty, and fun!


Recently, I was asked to join the KOHL'S Yes2You Fashionista Group!  I am impressed to find all ages represented in the group.  They sent us a little spending money to put together some fun styles.  Let me tell you, with the gift money...my Kohl's coupons...and their great sale prices, I came home with a big bag of fashion...just for me!





I went shopping with one goal in mind...great tops!  I have always liked the SIMPLY VERA VERA WANG collections and once again, that is where I found stylish designs perfect for my lifestyle.  Most of you know, I am in love with leggings and I found tops to keep me happy in my leggings for awhile.  I also own two Simply Vera leggings in fun colors from past purchases. For all who dream of wearing Vera Wang designs, Kohl's makes it possible with a designer collaboration.

Kohl's is pulling some late hours for the holidays and great prices.  You might want to stop by before it is all gone.


I just had to share with you this special treat idea.  One of my friends from our 5AM workout group made these chocolate weights for all of us.  Our trainer, BZ, loved it and posted his to Facebook pictured with a real weight in the background.  My grandson also loved it and almost ate the whole thing!!



Last, but not least, I am hosting FASHION FLASH today!  We were encouraged to bring you holiday themes.  I am honored to be among these talented fashion and beauty bloggers....check them out...must reads here!

Jenny Craig...I Love My Presents!

I have no idea what Santa plans to bring me this week...but I am so happy with my gifts from JENNY CRAIG!  First gift...21 pounds lost, and another inch and a half gone from my hips!  YES, that is the best gift.
Next, new food from the Jenny Craig meal plan.  I have been missing my Tex-Mex and as if they were listening in...here are two dishes ...one fajita bowl and one enchilada plate.  YES!



The milkshakes are delicious and a perfect breakfast smoothie with my favorite frozen fruit thrown into the Vitamix! Remember, you can order a THREE DAY SAMPLE KIT to see for yourself what the food is like...I am very pleased with what they offer and how well it goes with sides of veggies and salads.
I know I have not reached my goals for the holidays...so many unforseen circumstances which affected diet and exercise.  But, I am still with the program and have new goals for January and February.  For now, I choose to focus on the gifts...weight is down and I am healthier and loving the results.  Thanks to Jenny!

Five Days Til Christmas!
*I was provided a free trial program, and free Jenny’s Cuisine® items. Currently, I purchase their food at a special rate.   However, the opinions and writing are entirely my own. 
Members following the Jenny Craig program, on average, lose 1-2 lbs per week

All of my purchases are still worn and enjoyed.  And now Goodwill is offering even more fun...
