Posh Shopping





Tired of your closet of clothes, but short on extra cash for shopping? Me too! Sometimes I'll buy clothes I think I love, but after one or two wearings, I find they are not suited for my body type or my style preference. If you find this to be true for you as well, I have a brilliant solution for you. 

Recently a friend has turned me on to the wonderful site of Poshmark.com. On this site you can sell your items that are in good condition, and purchase other second hand designer items for yourself. It's very simple to navigate the site after you download the app.


Snap a photo of the item you would like to sell. Be honest in the description, and try to take flattering photos. You can find a mannequin like in the one in the photo above on amazon.com for around $30. It really helps to show off your fashion.


Next you can either input the price you want for the item and/or have someone make you an offer. Poshmark has a flat rate for shipping, and after inputting your price, they will let you know what your profit will be after the cost of shipping.


After you've agreed on a price with another Posh shopper, Poshmark with e-amil you a shipping label. Send it to that shopper in a timely matter.


With the profits you make, you can have fun shopping for yourself. You can pick up designer fashions at a fraction of the cost. It's so easy and fun.

Happy guilt free shopping!

Has it really been nearly 3 years since my last blog? Life has been so busy, but I have seriously missed sharing with you and I am so happy to be back in blog world. I'm still adjusting to being forty something. I'd better adjust quickly, because before you know it I'll be fifty! UGH. 

Let's don't waste time. Today I want to share with you a beauty product/ tip I learned from my mother. The product is called BOOM!stick by Cindy Joseph.  
As we age, many times women have a tendency to cake on more make up. Who do we think they are fooling? You can't cover up wrinkles with make up. More often times than not, we just look older with the make up setting into our lines. The idea behind these sticks is to combine very minimal make up with good skin care ingredients. The Boomstick Glo is a safe and effective moisturizer. The Boomstick Color provides a fresh, flushed look for your cheeks, forehead and chin line. The Boomstick Glimmer  highlights cheekbones, brows and body. Cindy Joseph is a beautiful, mature make up artist turned fashion model who has the right idea in keeping make up minimal with these products.

 I must admit, I love all things make up. I was very nervous to give up wearing so much of it. I absolutely reserve the right to glam it up for a night out on the town. For everyday wear though, I have really enjoyed letting my healthy (even if older) skin shine through.


Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and please feel free to share your thoughts/ tips/ ideas on how you are aging gracefully.
