Add The Remi Swing Dress To Your Fall Wardrobe!

I just had a wonderful opportunity to Review the Remi Swing Dress from Cents Of Style. It is a wonderful dress for Fall and it can be worn in so many ways.

Cents of Style began in early 2007, as founder, Courtney Brown, decided to take her love of fashion and bargain shopping and begin an accessories company.

Cents of Style lives by two mottos. One, you do not have to spend a lot to look great, and two, when you look good, you feel good.

The Remi Swing  Dress comes in  17 Colors and in sizes Small to 3XL.  I chose the Black Remi Swing Dress and Put it  with a Brightly Colored Scarf for the season.

unnamed

Being a Grandma. some how your body shifts where it has not been before, and I have an issue with that. (I told my Grandkids that Grandma’s are just fluffy around the edges.)

This Dress makes all that Fluff go away and  I love how the dress fits, and I feel so good when I am wearing it. 

I love the bright colors in the scarf, and a brightly colored necklace and earrings would be a great accessory as well.

I have been through a lot of things in my life that were not bright colors. I have learned that we have to find the Bright Colorful Things in our lives that make us who we were meant to be.

Let me share some ways to  wear this wonderful dress…..

Style Tips

*Wear your new swing dress with your go-to pendant necklace and a pair of heels. It’s simple and elegant.
*This dress is an ideal addition to your favorite ankle boots. We’re loving this look!
*Layer a cute vest over your swing dress. It provides interesting texture and contrast and switches up your look just a little.
*Cold weather is coming! Pair this swing dress with a coordinating blanket scarf, add a great wool fedora and ankle boots, and you have a pulled together look that will keep the chill out too.

You Can Never Have Enough Pumpkin

www.FlirtyAprons.com

It’s That Time Of The Year Where Pumpkins Are Sitting Out By Our Neighbors Front Doors, and  Where I Live Pumpkins Are Sitting In Farmer’s Fields Waiting To Go To Markets.

When we lived at our farm we carved Many Pumpkins and always cooked in a Pumpkin for Halloween Dinner.

There is Something so Comforting About The Taste Of Pumpkin In The Fall.

Let me tell you some things  I learned about Pumpkin……

The world’s largest pumpkin measures 15 feet around, is over four feet tall and, according to the New York Times. It is larger than the pumpkin shown in this image, which weighs in at 1622 pounds.

10080807_f520

The largest Pumpkin Pie ever made was over five feet in diameter and weighed over 350 pounds. It used 80 pounds of cooked pumpkin, 36 pounds of sugar, 12 dozen eggs and took six hours to bake.

Pumpkins are Gluten Free.

A Pumpkin Is Not a Jack O’Lantern, Until It Is Carved.

Celebrate The Grandparents We Love

Bouqs 728x90

In 1970, a West Virginia housewife, Marian Lucille Herndon McQuade, initiated a campaign to set aside a special day just for Grandparents. The first Grandparents Day was proclaimed in 1973 in West Virginia by Governor Arch Moore.

marian-lucille-herndon-mcquade

In 1978, five years after its West Virginia inception, the United StatesCongress passed legislation proclaiming the first Sunday after Labor Day as National Grandparents Day.

The proclamation was signed by President Jimmy Carter. (September was chosen for the holiday, to signify the “Autumn Years” of life.)

download-1-19

According to the National Grandparents Day Council, Grandparents Day has a threefold purpose:

  • To honor grandparents
  • To give grandparents an opportunity to show love for their children’s children.
  • To help children become aware of the strength, information and guidance older people can offer.

I Am a Lucky Grandma. I Have 19 Of The Most BEAUTIFUL GRANDKIDS! The best gifts I love to get on Grandparent’s Day are Hugs, Pictures, More Hugs, Laughter, Stories, and Pictures!

A Boy and His Masks

mexico-guanajuato-city-arts-housing

Let me tell you a story of Alex Rodiguez Rios  (Goes By “Alex”)

“My family arrived to the state of Durango when I was about 3 years old.  My mother and father had separated and my brothers and me stayed with our grandparents. We were a very humble but honest family. Our grandparents taught us good principles. 

Z-running boy

At the age of 8 I began to work to help the family. Copala was a Mining Town and it had many tourists. I began to search the mines for rocks. those rocks contained lead and they shined beautifully. I would sell those rocks to the Americans that would visit our town.

donkey-bus

At age 11 I began to make wood figurines from a tree we call Pochote. That tree produces large thorns and with those thorns I would make the figurines.

SONY DSC

 I never imagined that someday a man named Luiz Perez would come to Copala. I met him at age 13. He was very creative. He had seen elsewhere something similar to our masks. He modified them and made the better, having just arrived from Mexico City.

LuizPerez-low-def-1

Since Copala was a tourist town, he began to make the masks out of leather. He later invited me to work with him. At the beginning he only worked with natural tanned leather. He later told me that I would inherit his business and his art. I then began to also make masks of leather and gradually I have introduced different designs and colors that are very unique.

DSC_1870

I thank God that it has gone very well. My friend, Luiz Perez, no longer works with leather and I have the Galleria in Copola.

Each of Alex’s Masks are a True Work Of Art. The Leather is Hand Stained and Painted in Great Detail With Stains and Pain in Many Colors. 

The Leather is Shaped, Folded, Curved and Some Are Decorated With Sea Shells, Snake Skin, and Other Items.

You Can Live Gluten Free


It took three decades to figure out what was making Donna Sawka  so sick. Her symptoms — bloating, chronic diarrhea  and weight loss — began early in childhood, and they only became worse as she aged.

2149658_orig-300x265

Nine years ago, after developing severe anemia, a specialist told Ms. Sawka that she had celiac disease.  The digestive disorder causes damage to the small intestine when gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley and rye, is ingested. People with the disease need to follow a strict gluten-free diet for the rest of their lives to avoid serious complications like osteoporosis and lymphoma, an immune system cancer.

Ms. Sawka, 48, of Fairless Hills, Pa., said she “was overwhelmed” upon learning she had the disease.

In 2006, the National Institutes of Health started a campaign to raise awareness of the disease among both the general public and physicians. A goal was to increase rates of diagnosis because, unlike many ailments, there is a definitive way to stop Celiac disease from progressing once it is recognized.

“The vast majority of cases experience a complete remission from symptoms once they are diagnosed and go on a gluten-free diet.  “So essentially, you have no disease. That is what makes it all the more important to be diagnosed.”

1b7345660488d95f9c263c1bb8318b4c

 

And there is no better time to be on a gluten-free diet. In 2008, 832 gluten-free products entered the market, nearly 6 times the number that debuted in 2003. Last year, gluten-free even emerged as a fad diet in the general population. Now we see the gluten-free products everywhere.

“The quantity and quality of these products is amazing,”

Dr. Fasano said gluten-free products used to taste like cardboard but had significantly improved in recent years. “The only problem,” he said, “is that they cost five or six times more than their normal counterparts.”

Researchers are also beginning to experiment with drugs that may be able to block the immune response  to gluten, much like a lactate pill. If the clinical trials are successful, individuals with Celiac disease may someday be  able to ingest small amounts of gluten.

Until then, the gluten-free diet is working for patients like Ms. Sawka. “I am perfect now,” she said after 35 years of feeling sick. “Every system in my body was in an uproar, and then everything just quieted down.”

By CAROLYN SAYRE

 

Do you know how many foods contain gluten.  You have to learn that to begin with.  And  you will need to become an expert in reading the ingredients on food labels and become a detective for gluten in the food that is not labeled.

Check out this Gluten Free Food List that should help.

“The Food You Eat Can Be Either The Safest and Most Powerful Form Of Medicine Or The Slowest Form Of Poison.”

 

 

So What are the Causes and Risk Factors of Celiac Sprue?

It occurs mostly in whites of Northern European ancestry and is rare in Africans and Asians.

While the precise mechanism of intestinal damage is unknown, it is clear that removal of gluten from the diet results in resolution of symptoms and intestinal healing in most patients.

GettyImages-157740401-56965dfe5f9b58eba49db198

Gluten refers to the protein component of grains such as wheat, rye, barley, and oats (but not rice or corn).

The exact cause of  Celiac disease is unknown. The lining of the intestines contains areas called villi, which help absorb nutrients. When people with Celiac disease eat foods or use products that contain gluten, their immune system reacts by damaging these villi.

This damage affects the ability to absorb nutrients properly. A person becomes malnourished, no matter how much food he or she eats.

The disease can develop at any point in life, from infancy to late adulthood.

Symptoms of Celiac disease vary among sufferers and include:

 

celiac-disease-symptoms

Auto-immune” describes the way that the disease does damage; “auto” means “to oneself” so it is saying that the immune system of a Celiac mistakenly does damage to the Celiac rather than to the supposed invader.
What happens is that the immune system believes that a portion of the food eaten needs to be attacked, and as a side-effect of the attack, the lining of the small intestine gets damaged.
Celiacs who are not following a gluten-free diet will suffer from damage to the lining of their small intestines (specifically, to the “villi” the little hair-like growth that helps process food in the small intestine).
This damage slows and even prevents the digestion of food, which can lead to malnutrition (anemia, osteoporosis, vitamin deficiencies, and more)
An Open Letter Ms.Modify  wrote to Celiac Disease when she was sick in bed. People often don’t know the severity of this illness and tend to link it with food allergies (which it is not!!)

The spiral-bound cookbook includes an introductory section filled with helpful tips and educational information to help parents understand celiac disease, including a description of the dairy-free and gluten-free (GFCF) diet, and recipes to fit.)

I Have a Granddaughter Graduating This Year So Let Me Add Some Graduate Inspiration I Found…..

A Penny for Luck
Finally, if you’re looking for a positive message to leave for your students, teacher Robert Courtmanche share his end-of-year message to students.

“Each year we have an awards banquet, and I give the seniors a little gift and a penny with a message attached to it,” Courtemanche, a teacher at Galena Park (Texas) High School, told Education World. The wording of that message, penned several years ago by Courtemanche, follows:

My graduation gift to you is a penny, but why?

 

 

Look at the penny and you will understand.
The year is 2016—so you will always remember this time.

“Honest Abe” Lincoln is on the front—always be honest with yourself and others.

The word LIBERTY—as they say in the Navy, you are now “at liberty,” and that means you are free to do as you like. Don’t waste that freedom.

IN GOD WE TRUST—you must trust in someone or something; you can’t go through life alone. Trust in yourself, trust in God, trust the life you make.

A penny may be worth only one cent, and you can’t buy much with a penny anymore. However, every dollar is made up of 100 pennies, and every kid’s piggy bank starts with one penny. The penny, like each of you, is not made of pure silver or gold—but surely if you put enough pennies together, they will amount to something.

I ask that you go out into the world and amount to something. Set your own value on life, set your own standards and goals.

And, in case you need it …

Here’s a penny for luck.

 Have a Wonderful Summer,
