Miss America Dreams: What I Learned About Talents & Losing (Video)

miss america dreams

Miss America dreams!  Have you had any?  I grew up thirty-five miles from Atlantic City, the home of the Miss America Pageant.  The pageant was part of my being.  It was a huge deal every single year.  There was always a ton of press coverage on the news and in the local newspapers.  I thought Miss America was a huge deal to everyone!  (It wasn’t until I moved away from my hometown that I realized some people didn’t even know who or what Miss America even was.  Imagine my surprise!)

Just watch my video.  It’s much easier to record my thoughts than to write what I’m thinking.  The pageant taught me a few life lessons over the years.  Enjoy!

MAC Makeup Tutorial for Everyday Makeup

MAC Makeup Tutorial for Everyday Makeup

I’ve been sick with the flu for almost two weeks now!  The last time I put on makeup was on February 25th when we attended the Duke/Miami basketball game.  I started to feel a little better today, so I decided to grab my phone and document how easy my daily makeup routine is.  You’ll see in my MAC Makeup Tutorial for Everyday Makeup that it takes me about five or ten minutes.

Listen closely to the video, because I reveal a couple of tricks about how my lipstick stays on all day.  Also, be sure to subscribe to my Sussex Circle Musings YouTube Channel. Who knows what I’ll be in the mood to post next?

I originally posted the video in nine parts to my Fashion Meets Fifty Instagram, which is why it isn’t “formatted” properly for YouTube. So what??!!  Watch it anyway!  Who cares if it’s portrait or landscape???  Who made up all these RULES?????????  They drive me nuts!!!!!

Brooke, Bidding, & Banana

Banana Republic Shirtdress

Last week, my good friend Melanie invited me to attend a wonderful luncheon at The Breakers Hotel is Palm Beach for the Cancer Alliance.  Brooke Shields was the keynote speaker, and the event was based on shopping, shopping, and more shopping!  So many generous shops from Palm Beach donated items for the attendees to bid on, with all money going to support the Cancer Alliance.  It was a wonderful event, and the most perfect occasions for me to wear my new Banana Republic Shirtdress in Neon Hibiscus.

I love the style of this dress so much!  I usually freeze at these types of events, but the sleeves on this dress kept me comfortable.  The color is fabulous!  You can easily add rhinestones and wear this dress at night with a dressy heel.

Banana Republic also sells the same design in this pattern, too. I’m planning on wearing it on Easter Sunday.

I found the perfect purse at Nordstrom. It’s faux leather, vegan, and a copy of a popular Stella McCartney purse.  I love it because it’s perfect for day or night and the strap is adjustable.  Win!!!
