Hi there everyone, Marlene here ready, willing & able to help you with more Fashion Tips and ideas to help you look and feel better about yourselves. I hope you all had a great “Victoria Day” long Weekend with your family & friends from near and far. I certainly enjoyed myself.
I want to relate a story about my good friend, Isabelle and I. Last week, we had planned to go shopping at the Salvation Army (S.A.) & or at the Agape Center and have lunch together. We wanted to pick up a few summer items…so we decided to go to the S.A. first.
There were such Great Deals to be had on ladies tops ($2 & $3) skirts ($3, $4 & $5) and shoes ($3, $4 & $5.) The best thing to do when you buy items such as tops, pants, dresses and or skirts etc. is to try them on in the convenient “change rooms” that are provided to the Public. It may take a little longer to do so, but you will be very happy that you did. Having no returns is so much better and economical then having to return to the store on another day. I ended up getting myself (3) new tops, (2) new purses, (2) pairs of sandals, along with a cool, white belt…All for about $22.00. This money then goes to helping others in our community that are less fortunate then ourselves. It’s a win-win situation. Everybody is happy, especially me!
After Isabelle & I were finished at the S.A. we headed over to Riley’s Bakery on Pitt. St. This was my first time going, so I was in for some culinary treats. Isabelle ordered for us– a turkey sandwich on multi- grain (homemade bread made that morning) with cheese, lettuce and mayonaise. One sandwich would be enough to feed the both of us.($5), along with some old fashion donuts and some almond squares for dessert. Just as we were about to pay for our lunch, the owner and head baker, Rob said to me, “Hey, aren’t you the lady who writes in the paper (the Seeker)?” “Yes, I am,” I said back to him, with a BIG smile on my face. I was noticed by a total stranger. I truly feel like a Cornwall Celebrity now! ( BTW the lunch was Delicious.)
We, here at the Seeker, still are wanting you ladies to send in a photo of yourself, a friend or a family member wearing not so fashionable attire to have a CHANCE at a “COMPLETE MAKE OVER.” Check Out the FABULOUS PRIZES you can WIN, if You are willing to summit a photo. Send your photo to [email protected].
Until next week, be happy with who you are. It’s your choice.
