EBEW Valentine's: Pink, Red, Blessings, Winner!!






“You must love yourself before you love another. By accepting yourself and fully being what you are, your simple presence can make others happy."


Happy Valentine’s Day, all!  I can remember hating this day when I was a school girl…all the “pretty” girls got flowers, candy, attention and I usually walked away with nothing but depression and self- loathing. Oh, if I could just capture those times again and walk through them with the understanding I have today. Love comes from a variety of places and I no longer cry because it might not come packaged as the rest of the world thinks it should.




Maybe you won’t sit on a romantic balcony tonight…or receive a bouquet of flowers…but you can look in the mirror and know that you are a blessing to other people. Experience joy this day and go bless someone else.  Sometimes, all it takes is a smile!


T Shirt With Bling:  The Loft
Bracelet: Lane Bryant
Scarf: Marshalls



She won this fabulous clutch from Betty Audish!


AND, she won this beautiful coral necklace
from Marie Bruns Jewelry

Now, it is my turn to bless someone with the amazing prizes I have been promoting by Betty Audish Handbags and Marie Bruns. The lucky winner of the beautiful pink clutch and the gorgeous red coral necklace is….TA DA…Adrienne! from The Rich Life on a Budget...she is currently on a spending freeze, so maybe this win will encourage her to persevere on....



CONGRATULATIONS, ADRIENNE! I wish I could have entered my own contest…these are beautiful accessories and I know she will do some phenomenal styling with them!!  The rest of you tune in tomorrow for another great giveaway for a Foxcroft Collection blouse!!

Sweater coat, red denim: Lane Bryant
Ballet Flats: Target


About my Valentine’s outfit, the lesson here is NEVER SAY NEVER! I actually told someone that I did not think I would ever wear colored denim….well, here it is!! And my significant other liked it….after he shot the pictures, he told me to wear this to our Valentine’s dinner! I guess it’s a keeper!

Now, go enjoy the other Valentines over at Everybody, Everywear Pink + Red Event:

  11. Love the red denim! I find it to be very versatile and it makes me happy when I wear it, which is the best thing of all.
    Your outfit is beautiful and the scarf is gorgeous.
    Maybe I just woke up and realized you have a new header, but it is very attractive. I want to do something different but I haven't had the right inspiration yet.

  12. Happy Valentines Day Pam!! As always, I love your scarf. You have the BEST accessories!! and I know what you mean about all the popular girls in school. I didnt like school much either.. I cringe at the thought of it actually. I never felt like I fit in. Even now I always feel like I am different (ie. I am the Director at work... on my own.. !!)

    As for exercise! Well, I am full of ideas!! I think what you are doing right now is great.. some walking each day. Maybe next week you add in something else like eating a little bit healthier, then the next week try something else. I think its good when people make the gradual change- its more sustainable than " okay, January 1 and I am losing xx pounds and exercising everyday..." little by little.
    pop me an email if you would like to chat more though.. I love talking about this kind of stuff!! xoxo J

  13. What's this? I go away for a few days and you change everything? I LOVE the new look, the header is beautiful!
    As is your outfit! I think that is my favorite scarf, and it just wouldn't be as lovely without those red jeans. Fantastic!
