Sunday dinner is still English in this house.

 

 

 

 

Having moved to the U.S. 30 years ago, both my husband and I, lived a long time in England. He was 54, and I was 40 when we came here.

It doesn’t matter that the temperature is in the 90’s in Florida. I still had the oven on for 3 hours this afternoon.

Pork, stuffing, roast potatoes, carrots, peas, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussel sprouts, and OXO (beef) gravy.

While the oven was on, I also made my husband 12 double sized no sugar added cupcakes.

This is a ritual, and although it may not be every Sunday, I cook this way as often as time allows. I have enough vegetables for several other meals, as I always eat healthy. My husband ate all his big dinner. I ate half, and it was amazing.

Happy 4th of July to my American friends.

It has been an amazing one for me so far.  We went to the gym as they were kind enough to open from 5 a.m. to 1 p.m.

First off I made coffee in the social room.  Both pots were empty.  Then I looked around to see if any young children were there.  We had been given a bag of the of 4th of July items, and as we are not doing anything ourselves,

 

I wanted to give them away.  Then I went into the boxing room, to find my 2 ladies, that I am teaching the basics.  Big smiles on their faces.  I was able to order a set of gloves for each of them, through Amazon, and send them to their homes.  They wanted the same as me.

My lady I have been training a few weeks now, was going through the punches with the new student.  I am so proud of her.

I love passing it forward, and now I have a student doing the same.  This is the America that I love.

I could go to a Royal function in the ZJCT Womens V Neck High Low Dress Sleeveless Cocktail Party Dress

I really think that I could be the Belle of the Ball in the ZJCT Women’s High Low Cocktail Dress.  It is beautiful, well designed, and fits me to perfection.

The material is 65% Rayon, 30% nylon, and 10% spandex.  It is a slightly thicker dress than several I have, and that is a good thing, because it evokes quality.

The V neck is very flattering, and shows off the top of my boobs.  Not too much, but just enough to give a glimpse.  It is sleeveless, and has a tight fitting bodice.  It then flows from the waist down.  The dress has a zipper under the arm, which allows you to get in, and out of it without help.

The front is around the knee, on me just slightly below it, at the front.  Then at the back it goes low, and really shows off my

 

 

legs.  It’s like having a picture frame around them.

The dress comes in off white, burgundy, and black.  The sizes are from small to X Large.

My dress was folded, when delivered, and had some tiny creases in it.  I used my handheld garment steamer, and removed them in minutes.

The washing instructions are on the coolest, delicate cycle, and hang to dry.  It can be ironed if necessary, but I have my own little hand tool, which is so much easier.

I received my posh dress for free, and can’t wait for that special occasion, to wear it.  Although it can be worn for dating, cocktails, etc.

ZNCMRR Stripe Tankini is perfect for a cooler, windy, rainy day.

I have been at the beach for a couple of days, and took my new ZNCMRR Women’s Stripe Tankini Top Bikini with Brief with me.

 

 

We have had 10 days of rain.  When at the beach, the wind picks up when the rain rolls in.  I found that the Tankini was perfect.  The small fits me perfectly.  It comes in sizes right up to 3 X Large.  There are lots of different designs, and colors.  These can be found by going to the link at the bottom of the review.

It is really well made, and looks so pretty.  I had my husband take a couple of photos from the balcony, and I have also included a video for you to check it out.

When I came home I washed it on a delicate cycle, and it looks great.  I am thinking of getting another design in it, the last one on the Amazon page.  I did get this one for free, but very happy to buy another one.

Pretty in purplishblue. Thank you Sarin Mathews.

Yesterday, being Mother’s day here in America I wanted to wear something new, so I chose the Sarin Mathews Women’s Halter Neck Sleeveless Casual Swing T-Shirt Loose Dress.

We went to our local Fraternal Order of Eagles for lunch/dinner.  I always like to dress up, so this thin, comfortable dress was perfect for the occasion.

I did have to check which bra fitted best with it, as being a halter, regular bra straps show.  My gym ones has too thicker straps, so found a thinner one, with narrow straps.  This worked out well, as you can see in my photos.

We went at 2 p.m., and I felt great in my new dress.  It came just above the knee at the front, and just below at the back.  It has an opening at the back, like an oval.  You can see it in my photos.  The dress had a nice flow about it.

I felt comfortable, as it is a soft material, and doesn’t crease.  If you see one, you can just smooth it out.  I chose the purplishblue, and there are 12 other colors as well.  It also comes with long sleeves.

It can be machine washed on a delicate cold cycle, or washed my hand.

This is the kind of dress that I love to wear, as it always looks good, however you treat it. It is suitable for almost any type of outing.

I did receive this item for free, and always love giving you my honest opinion of the product.

Sarin Mathews Women’s V Neck Ruched Sleeveless Sexy Blouse Stretch Tank Tops

The Wisremt Women’s Short Sleeved Top is perfect for all occasions.

The WISREMT Women’s Short Sleeve Top Casual Striped T Shirt Tunic Blouse, is a great all round T – Shirt.  Yesterday I got to wear it to our local Eagle’s Club.  I wore it with smart leggings, and it looked great.

Then today I went to the Mall with my girlfriend.  We did a little walking, as my left leg is healing well, and then stopped off for a coffee.  She said to me, that she loved the top, and I told her that it comes in black, and gray too.  The sizes go from a small to an XX large.  This means it is great for anyone.

The top is a cotton/polyester material, so can be washed by hand, or a delicate cycle.  Once done I put it on a hanger, and when completely dry, it is ready to wear again.

This will be great for a weekend at the beach.  I will roll it up in the case, and then hang it up when I get there.  I can then wear it, and look great.

I did receive this top for free, and as you can see in my photos, have worn it, and tested it.  I am always honest in my reviews of products.

Replenishing the sand at Treasure Island Beach, Florida.

The beaches loose sand all the time, and years that we have lots of storms, or a hurricane are the worst.  I had seen in the news, that because the ‘Sunshine State’ makes it’s money from tourists visiting the beaches, it needed to be brought back to it’s pristine self.

So this afternoon when I checked out the beach, I saw the dredging at the John’s Pass end of the beach.  I took a few photos, and am so delighted that this is taking place.

As the months go on, I will take photos of the sand, to show you how it is progressing.  Right now they are just getting setup.

 

Wellvo Sexy Women’s Cute Push Up Padded Bikini Set With Underwire Bandeau.

If you check my blog you will see a number of bikinis I have modeled.  When the Wellvo Push Up Padded Bikini arrived, I couldn’t wait to try it on.  Up until 5 years ago I wore swimsuits, but since boxing/kick boxing, lifting weights, Zumba, and circuit training, I love showing my body off in a bikini.

I really love this new one, and can’t wait to wear it next month, when I am at the beach.  Living in Florida, I get to wear them more that most people.

As my husband has taken photos of me modeling it, and I did a video showing the product, the quality, and giving you my take on it, I am sharing some information from the Amazon webpage:

TripComfy Zen-Cradle Hooded Memory Foam Travel Pillow Set w/ 3D Contour Face Mask Provides Optimal Head & Neck Support, Blocks Out Light So Your Airplane Ride Transforms into a Relaxing Oasis

I received the TripComfy Zen-Cradle Hooded Memory Foam Travel Pillow Set a couple of months ago, and waited to write about it, as I haven’t done much traveling recently.

I love that it’s a set, and has the face mask too.  With the pillow, the attached hood, that has a neat locking tie under the chin, this is the perfect combination for relaxation.  I usually am so uncomfortable when travelling.

It is made of Polyester & Polyester Blend, and feels so soft to the touch.  You can wrap it around your neck, secure it with the toggle on the bottom of the hoodie, and don’t forget to put your eye mask on.  With everything in place, you can block out the light, and feel more at peace.

A little from the Amazon page:

‘Zen-Cradle Memory Foam Travel Pillow w/Carry On Bag provides OPTIMAL SUPPORT for your head and neck – so you CATCH ZZZZzzzzzsss with ease.
SUPPORTS YOUR HEAD at EVERY ANGLE: When you slip this premium, plush, pillow around your neck you’ll feel support from even angle, even if your head falls left, right, back or forward on your airplane, car or boat.
ZEN-CRADLE TECHNOLOGY – LIKE SLEEPING ON A CLOUD: Most memory foam pillows are too hot or too hard, pushing back on your neck and causing cramps and kinks (ouch!) Ours is engineered using a NEW technology that CRADLES your head in a PILLOW of CLOUD-LIKE COMFORT with a PLUSH, BREATHABLE exterior that keeps you cool. ‘

I keep mine in my suitcase, so on my next trip I won’t have to hunt it down.  Also a great product for hospital stays, as you can never get comfortable, or when you are spending hours at a family members bedside in

hospital.  I know I have wanted to fall asleep, but been too uncomfortable.

I did receive this item at a discounted price, and really like it.

Sogrand Solar Lights Outdoor Decorations Garden Decorative Stake Light,3 Color Crackle Glass Globe, for Patio Yard Pathway Landscape

I love the Sogrand Crackle Glass Globe lights, and this set of 3 are no exception.  The glass is just beautiful, and all you have to do is push the stainless steel tube into the bulb, and the stake at the other end.

Put them in a sunny spot, and allow the free sunshine to save you energy costs.  Remove the isolator tab under the cap, and you are all set.

The colors are just gorgeous, and they change from red, orange, green, blue, rose, purple, etc.  All the photos I took at night, the flash came on, and so you can’t see them, but they do show up in the video.  My husband took the one from a distance, so managed one with color.

I can’t imagine anyone not wanting these dazzling lights, that really are magical.  Right now they are a promotional price of only $11.99, so it would be a perfect time to stock up.

I feel that they are a security product, as well as environmental friendly.  The lights are also an all weather product too.

I did receive mine for free, but am thinking of buying some for gifts.
