What to Wear??

That is always a good question for us gals…What to wear or better said: What should I wear when I go out after? My closet is crammed full with fashionable items or at least in my eyes…. Maybe I should get my eyes checked then get back to you…..

But the 2015 summer fashion season has just begun and there are thousands of tips tricks and new or so they say styles out there just waiting for me. I want to be fashionable!! Though I must be honest some look the same as last summer only the price has changed and the color for 2015.

Now being a gal of frugal means I always take a closer look at all those great things on offer before making that all important decision as to what to buy for summer 2015. I have this dilemma every year and somehow it always seems to creep-up on me unexpectedly without warning… I am sure some of you gals out there know what I am talking about??? There is the new pair or pairs of sandals, maybe a dress or two, shorts, tops, bathing suits, and so forth…. Plus, the matching make-up too.
Summers can be stressful!!

But as a gal who wants to be somewhat trendy I started taking a closer look at the fashion pages online and discovered some things that I already own, and that is for years now… So, I surfed a bit more only to be confronted again with things that I already own…. Okay the color is different, but the style is the same!! There you go…. A major problem is brewing and the season isn’t even in full swing yet!!!

Of course I could always get advice from friends or other people, but what they like isn’t always what I like and how do you tell your friends that you don’t like what they have picked out without hurting their feelings??? I am sure you can relate to that…..

Plus, I need a bank loan to buy all that stuff… Sandals: $ 600.00, Shorts: $ 245.00, Hat: $ 165.00, Dress: $95.00 (cheap…. Buy 2), and last but not least a summer sweater for $ 308.00 …… And I still don’t have a bathing suit and the worst part is now there is no money left over for my summer vacation….. But I have expensive clothes and I hope everyone will notice that I paid a small fortune for them too!!!! Please note the labels, so you know that I am a cool person!! Coolness here I come…..

Though maybe I could do without the hat and wear my hat from last year…. Do you think anyone would notice???? Probably not, so I’ll take the chance and wear it this year too. I feel better already by saving a bit of money…… But still the thought is lingering in the back of my mind…. I want to go on vacation, so it is either cool clothes or a cool vacation……. I think I have to think about this before I decide on looking cool or visiting a cool place….

No hasty decisions ….. Think about it!!

A Christmas Card Sent To Me

Christmas cards seem to be something of the past. Remember years ago when friends, family and acquaintances sent you a Christmas card. Those were great cards with the same saying but always with a great different picture on it. Those were Christmas cards!!!

Somehow, you can still buy Christmas cards but no one seems to send them out like they used too. Back in my younger days my parents got literally loads of cards wishing them or all of us a Merry Christmas or Seasons greetings or whatever else was written on them. And nowadays I seem to be lucky if I get 3 Christmas cards….. The real sort I mean that you get delivered and they land in your mail box and you can display them proudly on the mantle.

What do I get now….. Some crumby electronic thing that I will delete after a couple of days…. Don’t misunderstand me here. I am happy that the sender thought of me but that still cannot replace that great piece of paper staring at you from the mantle piece and all the other cards there too biding for your attention to pick it up and read it again or when family or friends come over and they too head for the Christmas cards to see what you have received in the way of Christmas greetings…. Oh paper Christmas card don’t disappear from our mantle piece. I need you there to bring the peace and joy that makes the Christmas cheer for my living room ohhh dear!

I know that this whole Christmas card deal costs money and takes time but isn’t time that we take time for those lovely Christmas cards that could be displayed so proudly and enjoyed because the person who sent it to you or the person you sent one to can see that you took time or they took time and isn’t that part of the holiday season to take time???

Enjoy your real paper Christmas cards and remember someone took time to write it and send it to you!
