Hop in a Jumpsuit!

I hope all is beautiful, Lavish Loves!

Let’s talk about favorites.  My favorite obsession is a favorite every glamorous girl I know…the almighty jumpsuit.  Who in the world does not love a good jumpsuit?  An all in one ensemble…the woman’s version of an infant onesie!  Every woman I know has at least one in her closet.  But of course, you know I own a few more (Uggghhh..ME).  Note to self…I need to get an accurate count when husband is out of the house (Hee Hee).

The jumpsuit was originally a one piece garment designed for skydivers or parachuters, but low and behold, the gender that runs the world got wind of this idea (we make everything better).  Then this article of clothing morphed into a simple, chic, and fashionable must have (insert an AMEN).  There are so many variations of this piece of clothing; different arm/pant lengths and widths, multiple materials, and an abundance of embellishments.  Also, they are extremely budget friendly.  There is a jumpsuit out there tailored every lavish liking.  Therefore, is absolutely no reason not to own one or MANY.

So next time that you and your youngin need to get out of the house in a hurry, grab a onesie for the baby and one for yourself.  I promise you will be glamorously on the road in micro seconds!

Until the next time, have a great week and remain Lavish!

Wisdom by Coco

Several of my former fabulous students graduated from high school this past year.   I was elated when many of them reached out to request my attendance on their big day.  Some of these young adults where taught by me when they were precious 9 year olds. So, I was beyond humbled that they even remembered me much less wanted me to share in this momentous event.  My love ones almost broke the teacher bank when I began to purchase tokens of proudness from me.  I thought my right arm would need physical therapy from the rapid swiping at numerous retail checkouts! Forgive me…I digress. Back to the subject at hand.

For one particular fabulous former, a gift card or monogrammed towel set, or even cash just would not do.  I had to go grand for this one.  After racking my my brain for several hours, I decided to tap my inner lavish and think of what I would want from me if I were her.  Ah..Ha!!! Coffee table books!  So I raced online and ordered two great table top books that would hopefully represent how much I adored her.

As my fingers did the talking, I became intrigued by this being, Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel better as known as Coco Chanel.  Her life story is an exceptionally inspiring story; however, it was her quotes that drew me in like a moth to a flame. I own many amazing Chanel pieces and will treasure them always.  But what I did not know is that Mademoiselle Chanel gives EVERY woman rules to life by in 20 words or less.  Such as  “In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different”  and “A woman should be two things: Classy and Fabulous”…those are just two of my favorites (there are so many more).  Second to the Bible, I now refer to Coco when I need instruction on how to act, react, and behave.

Lavish lovelies, if you are ever in doubt or need inspiration… first seek word from our Father then peruse over to Coco.  Those two are all you will ever need for success!  I wonder if the good book will ever be revised to add the book of Chanel…hmmm.  Now, that is a thought! Until then, I will add a Mademoiselle Coco Chanel coffee table book to my online shopping cart.

Now when presented with a sticky life situation, I will ask WWJ&CD (What Would Jesus & Coco Do)?! I am sure the answers will be spot on!

Muscles and Mascara

I love going to the gym. There is so much to do there…meet up to laugh with girlfriends, share the latest family news, love life updates and oh yeah… workout.  I did not develop this love until I was in my 40s.  As a matter of fact, I would have much rather walked on a bed of nails than to be found in a gym.  The fitness equipment looked like a form of torture and who would wants to indulge in self torture…not I!  Thank the heavens my outlook changed.

I was out strolling through the mall one day and I ran upon this wonderful little tee.  Muscles and Mascara…that is me (minus the muscles).  I aspire to have muscles where my fat is hanging on for dear life.  This is one of the reasons I keep going to the gym.  I have faith that one day after a body pump session and an hour shaking it at Zumba I will awake perfectly toned and bikini ready.  Until then, I will continue to enjoy the laughs, family news, and love life updates.
