I'd like to think of this as a WW point friendly way to enjoy almonds.
I love the scent of almond as well as the taste.
Having a weakness for the nut I try to keep my almond eating habit in check...
Enjoying the scent is one way to satisfy the craving...
L'Occitane makes a great almond products and the jar of almond milk concentrate is a Humble Bungalow staple.
The shower gel is heavenly and they have just launched a body oil which I recently purchased.
The wee package of travel sized almond products were added to my order for a fraction of the cost,
an indulgence if you will.
"Orange is the New Black"
was hot a few seasons ago...
then Panetone Green was on center stage and now it's Radiant Orchid!
Have you seen designer and blogger Tamera Beardsley in her radiant orchid kimono?
She is featured in the fashion section of this month's Skimbaco Lifestyle magazine!
I discovered Skimbaco Lifestyle magazine when Adrienne Shubin started writing for them...
you might know her from her blog The Rich Life on a Budget.
These gals are having so much fun with fashion that I was energized by their enthusiasm...
Dressing in colour has never been so exciting!
A soft infinity scarf with a smattering of radiant orchid...
a birthday gift from my BFF.
I wore this scarf with a black tunic top with black leggings and black ballet flats.
The colour made the entire outfit pop!
I chose Revlon 070 Cherry Tart to wear with the scarf...the richer colour looked better than 001 pink truffle
which I thought was a wee bit pale.
I wear these rich shea butter glosses often and alternate it with the Chanel Orchidee.
I do love a great stripe as patterns never feel like they suit me.
I have tried and tried but they always hang in my closet sad and lonely...
scarves are my go to accessory for pattern.
Colour won't take center stage in the same way black does in my basic wardrobe
but it will pop up this summer on the boat paired with my white jeans.
I may look for a fun orange coral necklace to wear with this shirt.
I plan to use this as a"jacket" layering it over a plain white tank top.
Ralph Lauren shirt
It has a nautical edge so it will be a fun summer boat basic.
The 3/4 sleeve length won't get tangled up in the ropes...
I found my first pair of what I might call high end or luxury jeans.
When I tried them on I wondered what exactly makes a luxury jean worth the money.
I'd have to say it is in the fit and the details.
The weight of the denim feels good and it has more body that the less expensive jeans that I regularly wear.
The shape seems to stay true after several wearings so I am not tempted to wash them as often.
Jeans play an important part of my wardrobe and since retiring I wear them much more often than dress pants.
I currently own two pairs of black ponte knit dress pants and now I have 4 pairs of jeans!
So where do you stand on luxury goods?
What would you indulge in if money were no object?
Are you on Pinterest?
I'm finding it is a bit like eating almonds...
once I start I cannot stop!
Until next time,
Be Well and Be Kind.
