Red Plaid and Faux Fur

Posted on: December 29, 2013

My Dear Readers, I have not been feeling well due to my own silly mishap of neglecting to take my vitamins and the eating on the run this past month which led to anemia… 

I had days of severe headache and the need to nap often which when I mentioned that on the You Look Fab Forum, a dear member recognized my symptoms… I can’t believe it didn’t hit me as I have experienced it before… I was joking about having mono…my kids were laughing….

Linking up with Visible Monday


After two days of upping my iron intake, my headache is gone ,but I am having the halo leftovers similiar to a migraine and I am not quite as tired, although I did have a nap today…Tomorrow should be even better, though it can take up to 6 months to get back up to normal…


Excuse my indoor photos with a tablecloth background (compliments of my 18 year old son). The light above doesn’t capture the pants too well, but this is the debut of my red plaid skinnies.  I bought these months ago, on clearance for less than $15.


This is my new faux fur vest that my dear husband bought me for Christmas and I love how you can pull strings to nip it in at the waist.  He scored this at BJ’s along with my necklace…


Here is my Ying/Yang necklace that is Mother of Pearl and Onyx.   It really is much prettier than the photo depicts as it’s not showing the mother of pearl clearly.  

Dear Readers, I had noticed my face being paler in some of my recent blog photos and even mentioned it to my family… I am so glad that the dear forum member reached out with her thoughts that jarred me back to reality and action.  It is fairly common when eating a more vegetarian diet have to be careful…


I am grateful for a quick solution and turn around of my symptoms.

I am grateful that I posted my symptoms and for the insightful response.

I am grateful that my husband and kids went ahead to Busch Gardens , Christmas town last night without me.

I am grateful that my brother’s friend is grateful that my brother called the police and stopped his suicidal plans . 

I am grateful that my brother is such an amazing guy that he went to his place and cleaned up so that the girlfriend who was returning the next day, didn’t come home to any alcohol or drug mess (My parents are smiling and filled with pride as they watch over us from Heavan)

I am grateful for my two sons and their help in geting these photos today!

Sorry about those headaches! But you do manage to look fabulous in your red and black, and fur! Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday.

You look so great…no one would ever know you are having headaches…I do hope they get better. I really like this look a lot. Have a wonderful and Happy New Year!

You look wonderful. Very nice gifts and I especially love the necklace.

Take care of yourself. One thing I’ve had to remind myself is that when I’m eating less taking those vitamins and eating as nutritiously as I can are an even bigger priority.

Well, you look lovely even if you haven’t been feeling so well! Just take as good care of yourself as you do everyone else and you should be fine. Take very good care … less meat is great but enough nutrients is paramount! Know you’ll adjust … much success in 2014 with your plans!

Well, I just love everything about this post! All your good news and your health turn-around and all your outfit components! Surely Mom and Dad are beaming with pride 🙂 Happy New Year to you. I hope you continue to feel better.
