Nadine West - February

Hello lovelies. It is my favorite time of the month. Time to go through that signature pink package of goodies from Nadine West. 

First up is this sassy leopard print tank top. It, of course, features the same butter-soft fabric that Nadine West is known for. The fit and length are great too. 

Next is this Light sage v-neck box tee. It is purposely oversized, though I think it is still a little large or unflattering on me (as I am already large.) I might try it with a belt to see how it looks, but honestly, I am quite happy to use it as a sleep shirt. I needed some new ones anyway, and it's comfortable as a dream. 

The next item is the patterned button-front dress. It is out of my comfort zone, but I am eager to experiment with it. Sometimes when an item is not an obvious favorite it can push me to expand my style and learn new ways to accessorize. 

Everyone knows by now that bottoms are my favorite part. I got two pairs this time, which is how I prefer it. First I got these super cool black pocket joggers. They are comfortable and I love side pockets. Gives me the old cargo pants vibes. I'd love if they had wider ankles, but I just miss the days of flares.

Lastly for the clothing we have these great denim capris. The color gives them that vintage look. They have a real zipper and pockets. They fit great and are not too stiff. They'll go with almost anything. 

Sometimes the pieces can't make a cohesive outfit, but this package would actually be able to make 4 outfits, not including the dress. Either shirt could go with either pair of bottoms. I chose this for an example since I lean toward dark colors. 

Lastly, we have the jewelry. This lovely silver necklace. The crystal triangle pendant is a great size and the chain is feminine without being too fragile. 

Now, I've mentioned in the review that a couple items were not entirely my taste this time. Nothing can be 100% perfect all the time. What IS perfect is that if I decided I didn't want to keep them, I could just ship them back with the included label, for free (since I am keeping at least one item) and not be charged a cent. 

That's why Nadine West is so great. you don't have to love it all, and you don't have to keep anything you don't love. Give them a try, I am quite certain you'll be glad you did.

Realistic Resolutions - Superior Source Giveaway

While the new year always seems to come faster than expected, January seems to drag on for ages. For that reason, many well-intentioned resolutions fail without even making it a full month. While it is perfectly fine to restart resolutions at any point (or even give some up if you change your mind), my trick for sticking to resolutions is to make small ones. My go-to is "doing better at ___" instead of setting a rigid level or goal to reach for. Less pressure makes it easier, as do smaller steps. 

My big goal this year is to take better care of my health. broad goals are so much easier to adhere to and less likely to implode since it's not "No sugar" "No fun" or "Exercise 5 hours a day" type guidelines. It can be as simple as walking instead of driving occasionally, eating a salad instead of fries, or taking vitamins. 

The latter is covered, thanks to Superior Source Vitamins.

• No chemicals, preservatives, binders, excessive fillers, or artificial colors
• Tiny MicroLingual® Tablets dissolve instantly for quicker absorption!

Another thing that sets Superior Source Vitamins apart is their origins. Founder, Ron Beckenfeld has always had a passion for fitness. He gravitated toward health, and therefore, vitamins even at an early age. He started selling vitamins out of the trunk of his car in 1964. Ron started his first company in 1969, fulfilling a life-long passion to establish a supplement company that cares about health. The passion turned to necessity when his father got sick with Parkinson's. His father required many medications to treat his illness. Ron was concerned about the additives and excessive amount of other ingredients found in conventional vitamin tablets, so decided to create a vitamin that was small and pure where potency wasn’t lost in the high acid environment of the stomach.

This inspired him to start the Superior Source MicroLingual company in 1998 which revolutionized the vitamin industry and eliminated the need for swallowing pills to take supplements.

It is now 2024, more than 50 years after Ron first began his lifelong journey with vitamins and his passion and love for the cause is as strong as ever. n fact he cares so much that is kind enough to host giveaways, such as the one below, for his wonderful vitamins, so others can discover their magic.

One lucky winner will receive the following ($95 value):
• B12 + B6 + Folic Acid + D3 
•  Just Women Iron 
•  Extra Strength Vitamin D3 
•  Vitamin C Orange Melts
•  Zinc Plus

Nadine West - January

Hello everyone. I hope your year is off to a magnificent start. I for one, if nothing else, am starting the year out with beautiful clothes and jewelry from Nadine West. Check out my latest pink package. 

First, I got this fantastic navy patterned wrap dress. The cut is so flattering and the fabric is butter-soft. 

Next up is this super cute, red fitted tank top. I love this color and it is perfect for the season, especially with Valentine's Day approaching. As always, it's soft as a cloud. 

I also got this adorable rose print spaghetti strap top. So flirty and elegant. This is perfect for Valentine's Day as well. 

Generally, I get 2 bottoms per package, but sometimes I get another top or dress instead. In this case, I got this gorgeous pink crushed velvet kimono. 

Finally, the bottoms. I got these great black pants. They included a brown belt. I don't usually wear brown with black, but they don't look bad and I can always swap out the belt.  

Lastly, I got this lovely gold heart necklace with pink stones. Another item ideal for Valentine's Day. It's the perfect size and length and goes well with any outfit.  

If you are looking for a gift for your Valentine or a new outfit to hit the town with, I couldn't recommend Nadine West more highly. You only pay for what you keep, and shipping is free as long as you keep one item. There are no styling fees. You have nothing to lose.

Nadine West - December

It is the most wonderful time ... of the month. Time to check out my fabulous pink package from Nadine West.

The first thing I got was this black FILA athletic tank. I love the shiny letting on the logo and the cut of the tank is great. It is comfortable and stylish. 

Next is this lovely leopard print cardigan. It is soft and comfortable and will look great with jeans, black pants, or a skirt. 

Then we have this Daisy and Strawberry print dress. It is not a style I would normally consider, but it is sort of cute. I like being led outside of my comfort zone. I think it will look even better with a belt to cinch the waist. 

This shipment has a second dress instead of two pairs of bottoms. This one is more casual. I call this type a t-shirt dress. It is a lovely navy blue (the photo shows it darker than it is) and has a nice little criss-cross detail at the neckline. 

Finally, we have the bottoms. A fabulous pair of stretch skinny jeans. They are medium to dark wash and have cut/frayed ankles. They also have pockets which is always important. 

Lastly, we have this lovely silver pendant necklace. I like the size of it. It is durable and less likely to break than some of my dainty pieces. It stands out without being too gaudy. 

If you want to start the year off with a new wardrobe for the new you, I highly recommend Nadine West. You can return any items you don't love and you never pay a membership or staying fee. Hesitating is so last year.

Nadine West - November

Hello, lovelies, it is once again time for my favorite part of the month: diving into my pretty, pink Nadine West package. I just love seeing what my stylist chose for me and discovering all the great pieces I never even knew I was missing. 

First up is this simple yet fun gray tank top. 
It is made of a comfortable stretch fabric that makes it hug your body for a sinched look. Perfect under a cardigan or a sheer blouse. 

Next we have the aforementioned cardigan. Or something to that effect. This sheer shall, with its fun pattern and ultra-thin material, is a winner any time of year. 

We follow that with a gorgeous black and white dress. I love the cut on this one and the pattern. It almost looks 3D but still manages to be very elegant. It would look beautiful under a classic black blazer, or super sleek dressed down over black leggings or jeans. 

Speaking of jeans, we've made it to that portion of the shipment. We have these awesome black stretch jeans. I love the style and how comfortable they are. They don't have the chunky waistband that some of the other styles of jeans have. I prefer the sleekness of these. The only thing I would change is them having front pockets (they don't.) 

As much as I would love to wear jeans for any and all occasions, sometimes you need dressier pants. Like these beautiful black slacks. All the comfort of a stretch waist with none of the aesthetics. If your shirt covers it, no one would ever know. Plus, they have front pockets. 

I love that the items (almost always) make a coordinated outfit right out of the bag. How cute does this look together? 

Complete the look of these smashing ensembles with a little bit of sparkle, courtesy of this scintillating silver necklace. 

I'm sure you can see why I am head over heels for Nadine West and why you should sign up to get your own pretty pink package right away. The fact that there is no styling fee and no charge for anything you don't want, return shipping is even covered if you keep just one of the items. No risk all reward. 

When you do take the plunge, I want you to come back to the comments to tell me how much you love it. Until next time, lovelies. Take care.

Nadine West - October

Welcome to my favorite event of the month: 'Unboxing' my Nadine West shipment. It is always so much fun to see what my stylist picked out for me. So, let's dive right in.

First up is this fab orange tank, coming in strong, perfect for Halloween. While this might not be fall attire for many states, here in Florida, this is perfect.

Next, we have another fun tank. This one is a little sportier. I love the leopard print, and like most items in the Nadine West arsenal, it is so buttery-soft and comfortable. 

Third time's the charm. This shipment had an extra shirt instead of the usual 2nd pair of bottoms. And it's another lovely sleeveless blouse. This one is a little dressier, a different fabric from that stretch 't-shirt' material the others are made from. I adore this pattern and color scheme. It will look very nice dressed up with a blazer. 

Next up is the dress. This one is a bit on the shorter side, so, for me, it will be worn over jeans or leggings for a flowy tunic vibe. Love the dark colors and bold pattern. 

Finally, my favorite part, the bottoms. Super cute, lightly distressed stretch skinny jeans. An absolute staple in almost any wardrobe, but especially mine. I can wear these with anything, and they are quite comfy too. 

Check out how cute this outfit is. But any of the tops (dress/tunic included) from this package would pair great with these jeans. 

And were are STILL not done. Because, last but not least, we have these fantastic earrings. I love the size and the little pop of color. They are unique and without being too flashy. Just a great statement piece. 

Overall, while I generally prefer the usual package breakdown (including 2 bottoms as opposed to 3 tops), the fact that everything is so cute makes up for it. The unpredictability is all part of the fun. 

If you haven't tried Nadine West yet, you should. Especially with holiday gatherings coming up. You just might find a new favorite outfit that you didn't even know you've been missing out on. And if not, you can always return anything you don't love. You have nothing to lose. 

If you have tried it, I would love to hear all about your experience in the comments. Have a safe and happy Halloween, everyone. See you next time.
