Happy Anniversary “Phabulously Sparkling @ 50”

OMG!!! One Year!!!

Listen, I have to admit, When I first decided to join the Blogging World, I had no idea where to start. I just posted one sentence about being over “Fifty and Feeling Fabulous” and this one picture IMG_1848 and hit the publish button.

 

Since I started blogging. I found out that It does take a lot of work, for instance, researching, organizing, and taking pictures (I love taking pics), which are just a few of the things, but that’s okay. I’m so excited to say, I do love the fun of it and, I find it to be very relaxing.

While blogging, I’ve met some amazing friends along the way and reading their blog posts whether it’s about traveling, which took me on adventures to different countries and different states that I’d never would’ve dreamed of, or sharing food recipes, learning new beauty tips or finding shopping sales, etc. I’m definitely excited to see what 2016 will bring ….  😉

So here’s to my One Year Blogging Anniversary… Kudos Veeno+a-01“Phabulously Sparkling @ 50”, It’s like the old saying goes,

 

                                                        “Like Fine Wine – It Only Gets Better”.

 

Thank you all for continuing to be with me on my Blogging Journey and remember to always

 Sparkle Sparkle Bling Bling!!!

Merry Holidays Everyone….

It’s about that time of the year, Holiday Aroma is in the air ….can you smell it?, smells delicious doesn’t it?, Yep time for the jingle of bells, the glistening of shining lights, the baking of cookies and the singing of carols.

Time to pull out the Christmas decorations,  and to start off my holiday season while I’m decorating I always love to listen to Christmas music and here are my ten favorites:

Rocking around the  Christmas Tree images by: Brenda Lee – This one here has an upbeat tempo, so I definitely can get turned up.

Santa Baby – by: Eartha Kitt – This song here is so sexy….”Slip a Sable under the tree for me”, “been an awful good girl”, she’s also asking for a “54′ convertible too, light blue”,        …Girl Yes!!!   I feel Ya!!!

Baby It’s Cold Outside by: Dean Martin & Martina McBride…This song is for the cozy ones, it’s so cold outside, The lady stop by for a visit and get caught in the snow storm, she trying to leave and the man is begging her to stay. ” Sit by the fire” “let me pour you a drink” hmmm… seems like he got some hanky panky on his mind 😂😄🤗.

You’re a Mean One Mr. Grinchpiq_71526_400x400 by:  Thurl Ravenscroft – This song is hilarious… “Three words that best describe you are as follow “Stink, Stank, Stunk” forgot another word “Skunk”… Ha Ha Ha….bah humbug!!!!

Jingle Bells by: Frank Sinatra…I love those “J-I-N-G-L-E Bells”, This song is so much fun to sing …try singing and spelling Jingle Bells (fast tempo) I bet you mess up ☺️😉.

ELSA DON’T START…. SNOW GO AWAY

OMG…. The First Snow Fall….I can’t…..SMH!!!!

Winter doesn’t go into full effect until like December 21st … This SNOW and COLD weather has got me “STRESSED The F**K OUT“…sorry for the french…(no pun intended) I just can’t deal with this wild weather.

Of course, as a kid I couldn’t wait for it to start snowing, so I could go play in the snow, go sledding, or making a snowman and throwing snow balls.. but the snow in this day and age or shall  I say generation, has a mind of its own, don’t you agree?

I mean for the last three Winters here in Illinois it has been like the ice age, I swear last winter it was freezing cold, people were going around saying who made ELSA mad? You guys know her “The Frozen Queen” elsa.. 😂😂😂😂 and it was so cold the word “Vortex” was being used just about everyday, Schools, Businesses and Roads were shut down for days at a time, because of  the continuous severe weather.

 

Lake Shore Drive Shut Down…People had to be rescued from their vehicles.

Chicago-winter-storm

These are the Type Of Winters We Have….Stuck In The Snow!

 

This snow has got me so crazy, I’m thinking about relocating to a warmer climate.

I remember my grandparents used to say to me (“snow is magic…it comes from the North Pole”) yea… okay, whatever,… snow is magic right?, well snow, show me and disappear….😄😄😄.

 

Don’t get me wrong, the snow is beautiful, you get to wear your fabulous winter fashions, (coats, hats, boots, etc)…. you get to drink hot chocolate with marshmallows, go skiing and sit by the fireplace, but it’s too soon to be inside a snow globe, I’m thinking let the snow fall on December 25th so it can be a White Christmas and then the snow can melt on December 26th, (lbvs).

 

Look…

The Kids are even sick of the snow… They didn’t finish Frosty… No Hat, Face or Arms…. Lol!!!!

Snow on the Trees!!!!

No more sitting and relaxing on the Bench…..SMH

No more Picnics in the Park…Bummer!

Thank goodness the “Support our Throops” sign didn’t get covered by the SNOW

Yes people, I know I may need a therapist for this Snow Phobia of mines, but I’m sure, I’m not the only one…. right my fellow Illinoisans?

I will agree with one thing, The snow is beautiful only when it falls, but to accumulate…..no thanks! and Elsa, as for you, I think your beautiful too, but STAY THE HELL AWAY!!!

 

Thanks for reading my vent or listening too me rant….

PERISCOPE/social media

Hello Everyone,

 

So I  just recently came upon a discovery of an APP from one of my Favorite Bloggers, shouts out to , so the new app, well,  its new to me, and it’s call PERISCOPE periscope…. this is where you “Explore The World Through Someone Else’s Eyes” .                                                                                                  

                                                       How fascinating is that?

 

I know guys……  there are so many social media outlets  social    and apps   apps  these days , and now I’ve learned of another good one but I don’t know what to think of it just yet, however, I decided to give it a try, and  if I don’t like it, I’ll just hit the opt out1 button  lol !!!! ….just that simple.

 

 

So yes, it’s very similar to snap chat images (3) but, with Periscope periscope you have continuing live video streaming and you got people from all over the world ready to talk with you, and you have all these gorgeous hearts in different colors  popping up  (which represents applauds for the person, meaning you love what their video is about and what they’re speaking on), you also get to interact/chat with others, take people shopping with you, or while you out taking a walk or stopping at Starbucks for coffee, converse while your cooking, etc. Seems like a lot of fun and yes there are Celebrities you can interact with as well.

If I’m not mistaken , I believe it’s connected to Twittertwitter so whomever you follow on Twitter you will be automatically connected to them on the Scope!!!!!

 

So, I join Periscope, two days ago, and I think I’m going to like it. I’m still trying to find my way around it though, I think it’s the next big thing among technology, so come join, I’m sure you’ll  like it. 🙂

You can find  me under  “Sparkling Char”   on Periscope, look forward to seeing and chatting with you.

 

Sparkle and Shine!!!!
