On MARCH 18th,I received an e-mail from a very lovely lady asking me to join HER group of BLOGGERS to write once a month a BLOG POST of HER suggestion.I was SO HONORED I nearly fell off my chair!I am familiar with some of these ladies and their BLOGS which I have been following for a few years now.I consider this group of lady blog writers to be the CREAM of the CROP!I immediately wrote back saying I am NOT a writer and I am a bit intimidated.Marsha’s response was so kind and nice I decided to give it a go!With the stipulation that at any time I do not live up to expectations I would bow out graciously.So, here goes………this is what I was told to write about,” IF YOU WERE GOING ON A CRUISE,WHAT 10 PIECES OF APPAREL OR ACCESSORIES WOULD YOU TAKE AND WHY.”
~ NUMBER ONE ~
A NEW BRA………….get measured and get going!Happy to say I did this recently and went down a size but my GIRLS doubled up!Of course, this is nothing from anything I have had done cause I’m NOT that type of GAL but the reasoned popped in my mind immediately it must be the sagging!I went from a size 36D to a 34 double D!!Mind you I have NEVER considered myself a BUSTY GAL!When did this all happen and why???
~ NUMBER TWO ~
BRACELETS for those wrists………one can NEVER have too many………LOAD THEM UP.The more the MERRIER and you will OOOZ fun and glamour.
~ NUMBER THREE ~
Necklace…….Your statement piece!The collar will be exposed most likely on the ship and one should make that an attractive place to visit!
~ NUMBER FOUR ~
SCARF……..for those chilly walks on deck.Go on line before your cruise and learn a few new ways to tie that scarf.Do as those GORGEOUS EUROPEANS DO!
~ NUMBER FIVE ~
OVER THE TOP HEADBAND……………..Most likely you will be poolside either lounging or at the BAR.The hair could get in the way of watching the poolside action!Pull it back with a TAMERA BEARDSLEY inspired headband!
~ NUMBER SIX ~
HAT…………..you MUST include a hat that not only hides your complexion from those burning rays but that says ,”HEY,LOOK AT ME I HAVE STYLE!”
~ NUMBER SEVEN ~
COCKTAIL RING…………….most likely those nails will be done and you will be par~Taking in the cocktail hour!Make certain to have a SPARKLE…. DO ~ DA……for all to see!
~ NUMBER EIGHT ~
LIPSTICK…………….BUY A NEW ONE!You will be applying more then once a day!
~ NUMBER NINE ~
SHOES……..FLAT deckside shoe that will not damage the wooden floors and will keep you steady as she floats about the upper decks!Get in the habit of doing a brisk walk about up top every morning and evening!You know what they say “walking is GOOD for YOU!”
~ NUMBER TEN ~
CAFTAN…………..for lounging about poolside or slipping on to jump up TOP for your morning “CAFE”.
Then enjoy your trip!Take lots of photos……..and share with all of us on INSTAGRAM!We can live through you vicariously!
