CAROL’S CORNER

 

Welcome to another new edition of Carol's Corner. I hope everyone out there in cyberspace is doing well. You all are important to me . So let's get started with the fashion segment. First it is always a challenge when my husband is away to get my pictures done, but I always seem to find a way. Quite a few of them will be shot in our local diner. One of the servers there actually likes to take them. I am showing the base outfit and then the awesome cardigan I paired with it. This is a very casual ensemble but the jewelry just seems to transform it. This is a pair of skinny jeans( the back pockets have bling) and a short sleeved black sweater. This necklace and earring set is one of my favorites at the moment and it really does change the look quite a bit. We had two naming winners. For this the winner was Valerie Walt Hanyon with,”Midnight Chic.” And now on to my hand pics.





This is another of my newer Fitbit bands that I love and the bracelet is a perfect piece to pair with the necklace and earrings.


 

 

And then there is my current favorite watch that I wear with many ensembles.





I have to show a front and side view of the sweater because it is so different.



This is the side and back view. Everyone loves this sweater, me included. Jo Ellen Jatczak wins this one with,” Cozy Corner Cardigan.”


For this blog I am just going to provide you with links to read on avoiding weight gain during the holidays, something each of us needs and then, links to some recipes that just might come in handy.
