Bold for Summer

It is officially Summer 2012.

Are you excited? 

Part of the fun for us gals is of course fashion.

Swim suit shopping and wearing might be the bane of any womans existence. 

Still any of us should be able to find and wear the cool, flattering summer dress of choice.

I love when I can hit the thrift stores with $10 and come out with at least two or three. 

Just at an ordinary retail store in the last week I saw some for around $9.99.

I feel a shopping spree coming on.

Mean while I am packing up sweaters and turtle necks. Out are popping shorts, skirts, tank tops and t-shirts. 

Along with all of that a handful of cute summer dresses.

All that said today's photo shoot goes out to all who need a shot in the arm... 

If you have noticed I added a new badge to the blog.

If you are new these are found and acquired as bloggers visit blogs and sites for inspiration. 

I also have aspirations of a creative nature. I am interested in writing books, maybe plays and scripts etc.

As I pursued the new site and all that it was about I came upon the history of it and found it previously had a different name. 

A name dedicated to overcoming the fears that some women have. 
A name in honor of giving ourselves permission to shine and soar. 


  1. I am so glad my girls are grown and on their own. The changing of the seasons was always associated with the depleting of my reserve account.

    1. lol I instead am in the thick of it. Oh well.

      Being frugal means enjoying the new without breaking the bank.

  2. I've officially started my "Summer Get-In-Shape" program so I can wear those summer dresses. :)

    1. Right on! Rock it out. Have fun. It is a great time to eat healthy. Salad, fish, fruit salads, ice cream, fruit, vegetables, water and juices. All kinds of combos and nice weather to get moving in.

  3. I like it when you say "A name in honor of giving ourselves permission to shine and soar."

    1. No one else can do it for us. Now is the time.
