Off to the Beach! Me and My Old Navy Swimsuit!

I'm planning a little trip to the beach this holiday weekend. I bought this adorable one-piece paisley suit at Old Navy (it comes in 4 solid colors too!) Right now it's on sale for $19.00 originally $29.50. Unbelievable price! And fits me nicely. Can't wait to wear it.

CHECKLIST: I've got Neutrogena UltraSheer Dry Touch Sunblock 55. A hat. And my beach towel. I'm all set.

THE PLAN: to read my book Swimming by Nicola Keegan.

1. To laze around. 
2. Eat some coconut ice cream. 
3. And maybe, just maybe I'll dip  my toe into the water.

Happy Holiday!

Deal of the Week: Chunky Bracelets and More!

This season for a "wow" accessory, you can't go wrong with... 
Chunky/Cuff Bracelets... 
Lucite Bracelets... 
Multiple Metal Bracelets... 
or Natural Stone Bracelets.
Bracelets are hot, hot, hot! 

LUXemag says, "the more massive a bracelet, the better."

People Style Watch says chunky bracelets are a Top 10 Trend. They recommend you "pile up bangles and tough cuffs to go with glam dresses or jeans and T-shirt."

Lucite bracelets are another option. (See above picture. These colorful lucite bracelets were $52.00 now $16.00 from Max & Chloe.)

Stylecaster saw "plenty of lucite accents on the runways at shows like Prada, Louis Vuitton and Burberry."

Squidoo says natural stone bracelets are "this season's winning trend" for an eclectic look. It's one of my favorite choices.

So my dear friends, instead of one Deal of the Week, I have 12 for you!  

Look for next week's Deal of the Week.
