New Jewelry

Did you get any fun new jewelry for Christmas? Did you get that sparky cocktail ring you’ve been coveting or maybe you got those diamond earrings you’ve hinted for for so long.

If so, what did you get? Feel free to share!!

A New Year Means New Beginnings

Since we are ushering in a new year full of new things I thought now would be a good time to introduce a new blog into the mix. I originally started this blog as a way to help showcase my jewelry business but often, I found myself wanting to share more than just posts about fashion or accessories. So, I thought a new venue that would allow me to share whatever strikes me at that time, might be the way to go. I hope you’ll come and check it out! It’s going to be hard to get another blog started but I hope you’ll consider visiting often, leaving me wonderful comments and maybe finding some inspiration enough to share it on your blogroll.

Come find me at: southernstyleandsass.wordpress.com.

Happy blogging in 2013!

Out with the Old, In with the New

I cannot believe that it’s already January and already a new year! I hope you all had a great time ringing in the new year. 2012 brought lots of great memories, but also brought lots of hard times and tears. My hubby and I made a lot of health and lifestyle changes which have been great, but in 2012 I lost both my Grandma and Grandpa-within two months of each other. 

I know that in this life we will all experience sadness at the loss of loved ones, but these were my first family members that I’ve lost and it was very, very difficult. Christmas-time was bittersweet for me. I didn’t want to travel to Florida to see family because I knew that I would not be seeing my grandparents. I was a real Scrooge! I had a great visit of course, but it was very hard to go to the cemetery and know that I would not be able to see or hug them again.

I’m vowing that in 2013, I will adhere to my dream board of things I want to see, do and experience in this new year. I hope you all will stick around with me to see how it all unfolds. This blog may switch gears a bit in terms of content but I hope that you will still enjoy it.

Heres to a wonderful, healthy and prosperous New Year!

Go Big Orange

You can feel it in the air. There is a buzz about UT football. Living in a college town, you come to expect this, but people are ready for it. They’ve waited so long and tonight, the waiting stops. Tonight, we will have the kick off to SEC Football. Everyone will be out getting their new orange and white colors to wear proudly  in support of their team.

This is a very casual way to wear Premier while showing your school spirit.

Who will you be rooting for?

Update

So, I’ve totally been on hiatus for quite awhile now. Have you missed me? Aw shucks! Lots of things have been going on my way. I’m still working hard on my fitness goals for this year and I’m trying to get out and live life. For instance, I’m not one to like heights (understatement of the year), but for my hubby’s birthday we went indoor skydiving. It was HOT but a lot of fun. I was able to get pretty high up in the chamber thanks to my good form and thanks to my instructor for helping me too.

I haven’t been doing much at all with the jewelry business part of my life. I’m really taking some time to step and re-prioritize what I want and not try to be a people-pleaser when it comes to that business. I’ve lost some team members due to life things, i.e. businesses expanding, children getting older etc. I’m sad to have lost them as part of my team, but I think that we’ve built relationships that will continue on after that is over.

Thank you to everyone that has stuck in there with me via Facebook and/or Twitter. I’m still around so feel free to stop by any time!

Until next time…

Marvelous Monday | Frosted

I’m very excited to announce my new blog  feature. I’m calling on all of my friends to snap some pics of their great outfits but namely, pics of themselves wearing my awesome Premier Designs jewelry! This is my first ever Marvelous Monday post. Meet Anita. She is a friend of mine back from high school. Through Facebook, I’ve been able to reconnect with her and even help her purchase some beautiful baubles for your jewelry box.

The set she is wearing is called Frosted. It’s an awesome layered necklace with, you guessed it, frosted beads. The beautiful thing with a set like this is that it will go with literally everything you decide to pair it with. It’s a great versatile set to wear dressed up for date night or paired with a fun solid tee-shirt and jeans to stroll around town running errands.

No matter how you choose to wear it you can’t go wrong! I love this look on Anita and it will look great on you too. If you want more details about it or want to see a catalog of the entire line, just let me know!

My Current Obsession

source: Maybelline 

I’ve realized that I am like a lot of people…a creature of habit. My husband would totally agree with this and I’m not ashamed to admit it either.

I tend to order the same thing at restaurants, pick the same outfits to wear and even pick the same shade of nail polish in various brands. Typically my makeup routine is very quick and easy and my shades are all pretty safe. However this time, I went out side of the box while visiting the Ulta store.

I needed to new shade of lipstick that wasn’t too light and not in the same color family as all the rest. I saw this one called Fuschia Forever and thought I’d give it a try. I must say, I love it. It’s a perfect shade of pink and is not frosty like some of the others I’ve seen. I don’t do frosted lipstick anymore. After all, it’s not the 80’s.

If you’re looking for something new to try, I highly suggest to give this long lasting lip formula a try. I think you’ll be pleased that you did. What is your favorite shade of lipstick? Are you a creature of habit like me?
